Need a light? by Pyrosity Need a light? by Pyrosity
Colorized version of this sketch of Torché: [link]

Even though the "scan" is a really crappy photo I decided to play around with some more complex coloration than all flats. Also tried shading by manually dropping the color down or bringing it up, and painting it on top of the midtone (instead of a b&w shades/highlights layer that's just overlaid on top). I also wanted to try something different for the trousers' color, and gave it a sort of dirty gradient of grey and blue on the bottom..

I know his flamethrower has a bit missing (the wide strip connecting the gas canister to the main hose) but I decided against drawing that in photoshop as it usually looks out of place when I try that.

I didn't think this'd turn out as good as it did, considering the quality of the original photograph.

Edit: I updated the pic with a cleaner version.

Have I mentioned this is my favorite thing with color you've ever done? The green and even red refleco-tape is just totally freaking BA. Seriously.

I like some of the things going on color wise in this, but I think in general it needed to have more saturated and contrasty color on the suit itself. It and his trousers are kind of bland, though I did really like the way the bluish grey stains faded to the bottom of the pant legs.

Thank you! Since he used to be all feline, his tail was somewhat bushy and had a white/black striped tip. Now it's just a rat's tail.

Thank you! I lucked out that the sketch actually worked halfway decent under all the coloring - it's a photograph because my scanner has been bricked for awhile now, and the photo was just terrible quality x3

Thank you! :)

Yeah, I like using the pencil sketch to add the "texture" of the drawing, as I'm not that great with a tablet.

Thanks :)
I think it helped quite a bit when I was redesigning him, that I took some reference photos of myself for poses like this. Sped up the design part and I got to practice standing poses.
