Watch the sped up video with commentary for this coloring.


Ebas on is one of the best pencilers around. He is great at drawing the female figure and at capturing movement. His compositions are tight, so naturally, I wanted to color one of his drawings. I decided to do this one with Roxy and Fairchild from Gen 13. I like the end result. Just remember to use a lot of colors for everything. Dont just use three shades of brown to color a tree, but use browns, reds, greens, purples, etc.

See the original drawing by Ebas

For experimenting, try painting a tree with just green, purple, gray, and orange.

The first thing I decide on is the background color. Do I want a sunny day or a sunset. The time of day, the type of sky I choose, will change all the other colors I use. I want to use colors the compliment each other as well. Because most of colors are blue and green, our focused is mainly drawn to the contrasting purple and red hair of Roxy and Fairchild. This is a good thing because they should be the focus of the piece.

Next, I choose colors of the building and tree, which are pretty standard. The clothing for me was a no brainer based on the comic. Fairchild likes green and Roxy like purple and black. For the skin, I use a yellowish peacy for the base, hotter pink for the darker parts of the skin, and a grayish purple for the shadows. I like the look these colors give for the skin.

To make the glistening parts on the skin, I set my paint brush mode to color dodge and choose the base skin tone. I use a hard, round brush, set to 50 percent opacity and both opacity and size are set to pen pressure.

I guess the question I am trying to ask you why bring up black people at all? Why not name the room you went to on I find that very odd,I understand that you are trying to save face. Just be aware of what you are saying in public , because humans are humans and we all have our own biases.

Yeah, I hear ya, but I don't mind if people wish to think that I'm racist. It's their choice to make that call. I innocently mentioned it being black people because they just happened to be the only onces who said that in the race 01 room. I don't get it anywhere else from anyone.

I watched your tutorial on on youtube for this piece, and I really found it pretty good until you started the whole "gay voice" thing. You said that mostly black people made that comment. You should consider keeping comments like back on and keep them out of your tutorials. It really takes away from tutorial. And if you do not like black people say it, because that was all I got from that passive rant at the end.

Sorry to hear that you somehow got that I don't like black people. I find that very odd, but I suppose everyone will read into things their own way with their own biases. For me, though, humans are humans regardless of their color.
