I was hired to color this a couple of weeks ago by an off-dA client. We discussed this before I started the work and they said they were fine with me doing a lot of guesswork to try to bring the work to life even though the line work is so sketchy and so much detail was hard to read. They specifically requested I approach this with the digital paint work I've been attempting doing lately, not my usual (and preferred) cel shading approach, which in retrospect wouldn't have suited these lines anyway.

You're right- the painting technique you picked for this image does work well. In fact, it's a really interesting choice and really stands out. I especially like the bottom panel with the contrasting blue figures in the background, and how they make the lighter colored foreground figures pop out. Another nice feature is the water under the bridge.

Thanks! It surprised me because when I was hired to do this, I was barely a beginner at digital painting (and I'm not much better now, quite frankly). The client actually wanted me to do more work like this, but in the interest of moving forward on my own projects, I had to decline.

Thanks! Not bad for a painting noob, I guess. :) Still have a lot to learn, of course, so I'm not going to get cocky.

Like I said before, I feel that your coloring is your strong suit as far as your art is concerned. Good work, homie.

Thanks! I'm getting more and more commissions where I'm coloring over others' art, so I can't argue with what you say. :)

Thanks! I admit there's something relaxing about just brushing instead of filling hard selections for the coloring.

Thanks! I was surprised how well I managed to make this all turn out. There are some things about it I feel could have been better, but overall I like it.
