The Mad Scientist by Bluesrat The Mad Scientist by Bluesrat
This is Steamy Dalt ([link]), colored.

I'm not sure what to say about it, I suppose. I haven't been able to draw more than a doodle lately, but I had an intense desire to color something, and since Dalt here was the most cooperative with providing a color scheme, he got colored.

I am still working on my coloring style, which you can probably tell focuses heavily on lighting. I used the same technique here as I did with the last few pieces I colored, and if anything I'm loving it more as I get better at it.

A couple of new things here are the smoke and flames from the flying robo-thingie, and the lightning, both of which were spur-of-the-moment attempts to produce an effect that really worked out. The smoke was simply an extremely low-opacity large soft white brush that I scribbled around with, and then highlighted with orange. The lightning, on the other hand, I might actually do a tutorial for after I test it out a bit, as it seems to be a repeatable process.

Dude, the coloring in this is great, and that clothing design? Droolable.

Brave lighting scheme, too.

Oh yes, you can has mad skienist!

Thankee! The lighting came out better than I expected, and I feel I have to credit a lot of that to sheer luck. :)

Wow!! :omg: Nearly everything on Dalt lights up!! That so cool! He looks really 3D -- the effect is just excellent. His vest seems to be either glowing or iridescent and it looks really nice. Just lovely work overall.

Woohoo! Thanks. :) I had so much fun coloring him, I'm glad other folks are enjoying him as much.

Yup, he's a very glowy kind of guy. The vest was an accident: the blue light on the gold fabric simply turned out that way.

Oh! <3 *^_^*

Wow! That's... Wow! Incredibly done! I ... there's so much right with that piece! I don't even know where to start! Well done, just... well done!

Is that a phlogiston blade at his hip?

Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun doing this one. Indeed it is a phlogiston blade (seeing as lightsabers are copyrighted ;)).
