Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I'm Ellen Grieves, or Ellen/Cain for short (those are my pen names). I've been making graphics and manga coloring since 2003, but did so more openly in 2006. So I have about ten years of experience there, I mostly work in SAI and 3-4 different versions of PS (7.0, CS2, CS3, CS4), along with Elements and Open Canvas. I'm a writer as well, although I'm best known for procrastinating on that and other hobbies.
I've made a folder specifically for Coloring Challenges, and as of 2012 I've completed 4 of them. The idea is to re-color something I've done in 2009 to 2013 to see where I've improved or where I still need work in. The plan is to reach at the minimum 15 challenges by the end of the year. The following have been picked to be re-colored again (I might change my mind, so it's not final):

5. Eingefroren im Schock
6. Hidden In Mist
7. Vendetta di Suzuki Adelheid
8. Innocent Piece
9. Zynisch Junge
10. Ruiko The Witch
11. Allure of the Mist
  • Drinking: Tea
