Fallen Tragedy-Colored by Elorviel Fallen Tragedy-Colored by Elorviel
colored version of [link]

I was just trying out a new coloring technique to see if I like it or not. It was a little harder than normal coloring, but it was faster, I think. I think maybe if my line art was a little more clean it would have come out better. Also, if it is too dark to some, let me know. I'm thinking about brightening it up a bit anyways.

This is an original character of mind called Amber from a NaNoWriMo story I wrote/am still writing from November. The story has no title yet, but she is my main character. She has an amber stone with a key encased in it fused to her sternum. Any likeness to someone or something you know or have seen is purely coincidental.

I don't know why I keep drawing her revealing her chest. All throughout the story she totally hides it.

I've always wanted to go to a convention and cosplay original characters. She'd be on the list if I ever choose to do so.

To me, this technique works perfect. And bonds006 is right: you're amazing with the fabrics...

Thanks! I try to push myself with certain things and cloth is one of them. I wish I hadn't gotten lazy with it though.

What coloring technique did you use? I really like the way it came out, especially the sketchiness. It's like the lines left over from the original scan compensate for or eliminate the need to use any shading/value in the coloring stage. And while I agree that it could be a little brighter, I don't think the darkness totally detracts from it. In fact, it makes the picture more mysterious/intriguing (which you may or may not be aiming for). **favs!!**

I did use shading sparsely (all of it is, I guess, in her skin). The technique was actually a failed attempt at trying someone else's technique that I saw once. What I basically did was either made my colored layers "multiply", "color burn", or "overlay." I think I might have used some other preference, but I don't remember at this time. I also don't think I messed with the opacity with the layers. And I made sure to erase all of the background of the original sketch.

And thank you for the fav!

Ooo...cool. I occasionally play with layer settings, too, though I've never tried doing it for anything other than backgrounds. (At least, I don't remember doing actual characters...) I should try it!

Oh, and you're welcome!

I like it. I've always liked the style of coloring just under the pencil lines, which is why I adapted it myself. I really like they way you've hand;ed the same idea.
