Retro Batgirl, Colored by stratosmacca Retro Batgirl, Colored by stratosmacca
Okay, this is my attempt at not only coloring the Batgirl drawing I did a while back, but also messing around with effects and things in Photoshop.

The majority of my time was spent on the background, even though it was relatively simple! I'm still getting used to coloring within Photoshop (at least doing more than just flatting), but I wanted to try and add more to this piece; I felt it would've been too bland otherwise. Still don't know how I feel about it, but at least the general idea comes though, I think.

Anyway, practice makes perfect, right? :)

I realize this has been here for a while, but I am relatively new to DA. So let me say now, well done. I always loved Batwoman (sexy). This is well drawn and colored.

Nice jobs on the colors. This cel shading style works very well with your lineart and gives the piece a slick and clean overall look. I really can't find a thing wrong with the coloring here. Kickass background, too.

Thanks. The drawing itself was done freehand before I took it into Photoshop to color.
