Jet's Here by Dualmask Jet's Here by Dualmask
Felt a little color-rusty so I decided to add some colors to this sketch from months back. I think I went a little too wild with the effects though... ^^; I feel like I bit off a little more than I can chew.

Still flying by the seat of my pants, too. This image wasn't on my project list...I just felt like coloring it. Wonder if that means anything...

I think the effects look spectacular. This could easily be a comic book cover :>

It looks great colored up- which is a good reminder that by starting with a solid underlying sketch great results are achieved. The colors are good in this one- I like your choices of tones in order to match the light sources. The backlighting on her legs from the blast is effective.

Thanks! You're right about the importance of the underlying sketch. I've been trying to do a lot of work starting with a loose rough drawn digitally and going straight to final inks and colors from that, and while it works sometimes, it's not really ideal for a more complex illustration like this one, at least, not with the way I work. I have to make sure I don't get too lazy with my base drawings.

Awesome action scene! :w00t: I love the variety of colors at work here. (btw, the bright orange glow in the lower corner is coming a bit strong and kind of takes the attention off Jet) But that said, it'd be a great opportunity to light Jet even more intensely from that direction. :nod:

I actually considered the orange glow to be more subdued than it should have been. It's an explosion after all, so it should be rather bright and should have created more contrasting shadows, yet I put a shadow on Jet's thigh right next to it, which was a goof on my part...but I didn't really catch it until I looked at it a day after finishing it. So I actually tried to enhance the glow and make it brighter, but you're right, now it kind of distracts from Jet. I should have reconsidered the whole thing. Alas, that's what's great about art...always something to learn from. Glad you like it!

Oh, awesome. I'm a complete sucker for cool cyberpunk. (And I'm also rubbish at getting white-with-colored-aura glows to look this good).

Thanks! Making an object glow is easy as pie...just make your white shape and use the Outer Glow layer effect (assuming you're using Photoshop). Tweak the settings until you get it the way you want it. Another way would be to make your white shape and duplicate the layer, then color the duplicate whatever color you want the glow to be and blur it, making sure the colored layer is under the layer of the original white object.

Thanks! To be honest I felt more like I was working at random, trying everything I could think of instead of following a plan... but I guess it worked out. :)

I think the effects are fine! But then again, I'm one of those assholes who doesn't mind "comic sans". lol. Great colors, I especially like how her top looks kinda glossy!
