Tea by Fire-wing-96 Tea by Fire-wing-96
Hi Everyone! :-D
Here we go, that's the biggest coloring-project I ever had! Normaly I'm just eager, I start a coloration and don't want to spend to much time on it, so it has to be finished in less than a hour. XD But here, I've started with the colo at the beginning of this month, and finished it yesterday night, after working every day on it and spend around 30 h on it! It's a record for me and it kills me that the result turned out even better than I've could ever imagined! I'm so proud and I smile all over my face! :-D I learned so much while coloring this lineart and it motivates me to see that I'm able to do such a coloration if I really do my best and spend a lot of time on it! Also I have to say thank you photoshop! It's such a great program, I used so many different tools, that made the outcome of the coloration eaven better! It's so much fun to color with photoshop!
Do you have a favorite part on my coloration? I guess I like the rock-candy the most, I love how it turned out! :-D And do you like the colors I've used? I just wasn't sure which colors look best XO

Short story of my reason to work so hard on this. ;-)
It's my entry for the :iconcolor-me-club: June Contest. The club has started to hold monthly contests this january and I've followed every single one of them but I've never entered one, since I was affraid to be unhappy with my entry. There are so many talented people who enter the contests! Since half of the year is gone, I just had to fight my fear and start COLORING! XD XD XD 30 long and hard hours, full of new experiences. And in the end I'm sooooooooooooooo happy that I did it!

Program used for coloring: photoshop cc

I love the colours you’ve used, I love the detail on the mint leaves, the ice and the way you’ve made everything look so perfect and glossy yet realistic, looks awesome ^.^ plus the concept is super cute too!

seeing work like this really motivates me! I hope you do more 30 hour works (as draining as it might be) because it really pays off, it’s the sort of artwork that puts a smile on your face because of how cheerful and complimentary the colours are =o

Its cool how even though you didnt do a set background, everything is so well proportioned and pulled off (reflections and all) that the perspective is spot on.

i really want tea now Onionhead Tea - Onion head

the best part of it is that you made the photos match with your character styles.

XD Well I just used the photos as references to know how light and shadow look like on the materials so it wasn't such a big thing to "match" it and just to give right credits, I haven't drawn the lines!!!! I've just colorized this lineart by Chibivi-Linearts to participate in the color-me-club Coloring Contest.

Wow the ice an the leaves look so realistic :o
And yes I also think that the crystalised sugar looks really nice because it's a nice mix between stylising and a photorealistic drawing :)

I know this lineart ^^.
This is a really in-parts-very-photorealistic coloration, and I can quite well imagine that it needed a lot of time. I personally like those ice cubes best :). And the tea-color and waterdrops are great! (Other parts are great, too ;))

I wish you good luck for the contest (: [although I want to win it, too...]

Thanks a bunch for your nice words! I wish you good luck for the contest as well, I like your entry a lot. Sure winning would be great for every contestant, I think. ;-) But for me, I already won so much by just entering this contest, I just wanted to give the best I can and to work really hard and I'm just so proud of this coloration, no matter how the contest ends. :-) I learned so much about coloring, that's an amazing prize already.

Thank you :). No, I actually did not color this lineart, but it would have been my second choice :).

I think your coloration may get a high amount of votes, too. It is somewhat strange not to know a thing about the voting - last time (with the linearts) there was a bar where one could look at... I am quite curious to see the results ^^

Well, at the moment it's the preselection phase, in this time you never know how the voting stands, it's quite thrilling, right? But in the next days, the poll will be open, then we can see the bars you're talking about. :-D To take part in a contest ist so exciting! There are so many awesome entries it will surely be a close run!
