Finally finished coloring this piece. Took about a week and a half. The original pencil drawing is here, it is 2B/4B on vellum bristol. [link]

I probably didn't follow any conventional steps in the coloring process which was done with a Wacom tablet in Photoshop. I did most colors and things like the robe, staff, hands ect. on a separate layer with it set to multiply then a final layer set to normal to touch up some details.

It was fun, but a bit of a chore. I am still learning digital painting and this one I am happy with the results though the flaws in the drawing are still there the color I believe added to the composition.

I added a montage of some of the details.

Thank you, I am still in the novice area but I am liking some of the results I am getting. I was fortunate on this piece because it seemed to demand a bit more and I couldn't let it go.

i was wondering if i could use the lineart version for a school newspaper. iwas wondering if i could have your permission to do that?

I have no issue with that as long as your school newspaper is nonprofit and full credit is given and a link back to deviant art. Any publishing outside of your school newspaper though I would have an issue with.=)
