Contest Entry: Bronze by Ciuva Contest Entry: Bronze by Ciuva
Lame title.

Anyway, this is my contest entry for *gaux-gaux 's colouring contest, and she is the creator of this awesome lineart. I didn't really put my heart into this one, so the colours are badly planned, I just knew I wanted to go for very warm colours. Bronze and red. Could have done better, could have done worse, but I can't really work more on this now. At least it's done... I did this in a few hours today, because the one I'd spent hours on yesterday, suddenly had lost a couple of layers when I opened it to do the finishing touches. Guess who was mad... But now it's redone, and some things are better. Some things are worse. I originally went for a very dark background, but it didn't look good, so I changed it. Hardly put any effort into the background, so that one's bad... Hope you like anyway. A bit of a change in style for my part, but it was really fun. I think I have to do more colouring work in the future ;)

Holy shit. I'd have to say out of all your drawings, this is favorite. It's damn amazing, I know I can't really say whats good and whats bad, but the only thing that bugged me was the arms are kinda the same size the whole way. *shrugs* But then again what do I know about drawing lol.

Thank you. I didn't do the lineart though, I've only coloured it, so I couldn't really do much about the arms... But I'm glad you like it :)

Thank you very much!! Especially coming from you - I've been looking at your art, it's awesome! Yes, the chest does look very flat... I couldn't figure out how to shade it properly, I had no reference and have never shaded a male chest before ;) Not that that's an excuse. Guess I got impatient...
