PartItion- Characters Colors by WesTalbott PartItion- Characters Colors by WesTalbott
Many of you knew what colors Alan was altho I did tweak them a bit, but here are the colors for the other 2 aswell.

*EDIT* After some helpful comments I tweaked a few things.

Overall brought the saturation levels up a bit, and tried to push the contrast a little more. Biggest and most obvious change is Veiss's makeover. He was a little too "half blue, half orange" and his belt was taking all the glory for his design. That and his new colors scheme I feel is a little more unique to him. Let me know what you think. :)

I love the characteristics you give to your characters, and even by the way they stand, you can pick out subtle hints of personality without even knowing who they are. It's great.
I love the clothes and the colour schemes you picked, too; His green colours are unique, but they aren't great-bright or flouresent, which is cool because it makes it seem more realistic. Sometimes, I can just never seem to draw characters in stances that seem fluid and more realistic than stiff, but it's something I admire, and it makes for great work in art. I have to wean myself into better stances xD Gives that upper-hand want for art to be viewed.
Not that I'm a pro or anything, but I think you did a great job! I love your work and hope to see more of these guys :D

Last guy reminds me of Hellboy and War (from Darksiders) out together. And Shale from Dragon Age, i think. That rocks.

Dude these are sick. Elyra is that innocent hot, Veiss though just takes the designs for me though. He just has a cool badass look to him. I remember stumbling on your darksiders stuff a little of over a year ago and in that time man you have developed so much its crazy. You have a bright future man. Your work is to good for you to not be the stuff of greatness.

well my original idea for the demons is that they would have blue blood so naturally a greyish toned skin would make sense. I also wanted to avoid people connecting him with hellboy XD altho we shall see, someone mentioned I might want to give him a warmer color scheme so he may not stay blue.

well techniclly speaking, we all have blue blood, but it turns red when it becomes oxyigenated, but that would make sense if demons in your world didn't have to breate, so you could still go with it. As for a warmer color, you could always go for a dark purple if you still want to avoid hellboy statis :P.

the only problem with that like someone else commented is that then both elyra and veiss would be purple and tan colors. we'll see, I fiddled around with it some more and I'm still feelin the blue altho it could change more when I do a more finished peice of him.

Overall these designs are pretty strong. One thing that bothers me, the girl and the monster share a very similar color palette. The only different between their colors are the dark blue being replaced with dark purple. Since you already used green and blue, what about a warmer color theme? Also im aware these are just flats, but dont get too bogged down in the muddy desaturated color spectrum. I love desaturated myself, but you really need to accent them with a saturated color, like you have on Veiss, however every time i look at him all i see is his belt armor thing. Id say your strongest design of the bunch is Alan, but he looks like you put a grey overlay layer on him, and his sheath has the same colors as his knee plate and pants, so its hard to figure out the boundary. Also this is a minor complaint, but i notice you keep doing this, at the waist, particularly on alan, your belt ellipse is backwards. From the perspective of horizon line, you would see the top edge of his belt, not the bottom edge, this creates a completely different form. Last point of interest, that chick has cool boots.

Thanks for the critique, I was pretty happy with her boots :) Yeh I think I'm just not very good at flats, rather than thinking of what color it is in general I think more of how I begin painting so I start with darker less chromatic colors, and then try to brighten them up a bit to make it not look so dark so that probably- especially in alans case- is why they look that way. As far as the similar color schemes of Veiss and Elyra they will be pretty different in a final painted peice. Veiss's armor is a shiny metallic copper color and Elyra's leather is more of a golden brown textured surface. Basically I'll be pushing Elyra's Purples/Yellows and Veiss's Oranges/Blues.

Good call on the belt I didn't even notice that XD.
