Ok, this was going to be the colored version of my entry for :iconorlandbloomsbabe:'s contest...but I missed the deadline so...

Huzzah!! This is my design now!! :shakefist:

But yeah, I think this is so way much better than the lineart...I mean, really. But I really need to get out of this white/silver hair fad I've had...even though I tried so hard to find another hair color...but none really fit...so...

Yeah, so this character has white hair...again...

Not sure if I'm satisfied with her weapon, I might redesign it later, I dunno. If I have time besides school I'll think of something!! =D

I love comments, desire critques and despise flames.

Tools of the Trade: 02 and 05 Sakura Micron Pen

You did a most EXCELLENT job on all the scales. What technique do you use to give them their own individual bits of illumination?

So it's an all by hand kind of job, so to speak. ^_^ I think those techniques look infinitely more realistic and several times better than patterns. Though, I have been getting more and more into using patterns myself. =P

Thank you so very much! When I color in scales, I start out with basic shading, usually three tones in the lighter end of the spectrum to show where light and shadow will fall. I then add the darker hues of each individual scale, adding where they need to be darker as needed to accent shadow. It's fairly simple but it works. ^^ If you have any other questions I'll be more than glad to answer them.

Thank you again! Sometimes I think the outlines were a little to thick, but I'm glad you don't think so! ^^

This is really pretty. I like what you did with the colours, though I think it'd look even better with a more dramatic shading on the clothes.

I am glad you like it!! And since you made that suggestion I will certainly go back when I have time and add more contrast. Thanks for the tip!! =D

I think the colours that you chose work very well, and I especially like the scale armor effect. It looks like it took a lot of time, and it turned out great. Bravo job ^_^
