There's a sort of coloring style that I've been falling in love with lately. If you have a pixiv account, maybe you can see a few examples in the link below. I'm not completely sure how it's done, but I'm guessing that the artist is starting with a sketch, coloring over it, and then re-drawing the line-art again on top of the coloring.
Either way, it's made me realize the limits of black and white lineart. As of this point, my New Years resolution is to be able to color as well as the above artist. I know I've started tons of Operation LtCs in the past, but I'm serious this time! Really!
I'm sorry, people. I had thirty consecutive seconds of weakness. And now I have to bear the heavy weight of the fact that I've lost and that dA's relentless assault of private message ads and peer pressure has won. Forever. I want to go kill myself.
