Manga Coloring of the Week #01 (2008): Amateur Colorings:
December 18 - December 25

We're starting again with week 01! :nuts

Hi & Welcome to the Amateur Coloring Category.

This category is for the colorists out there who are just now discovering their talent of coloring manga.

Any manga colorings of your choice are allowed. It can be a whole page, double-page, or even just a panel, whatever you wish.
Any fan art should be submitted to the current Fan Art of the Month contest.
Any media of your choice. Watercolor, Digitally-colored, or even a crayon coloring. As long as it looks good, why not!
Entries for the Amateur Category must be posted in this thread. Please go to the Advanced Coloring Category thread if you consider your work Advanced.
If you've won 3 times in our weekly Amateur Manga Coloring Contest, you will be classified as an Advanced artist and you have to stay with that contest from now on if you still want to compete. However, you can still enter the Advanced contest even if you're still classified as an Amateur, if you're that confident in your work.
If you have multiple colorings, please just choose one for the week's competition.
Kindly credit the cleaned page if it is cleaned by someone else.
Kindly submit your final work. No editing your post for newer versions of colorings please.
No plagiarizing please. Ripping someone's hard work is just wrong.
If an entry is perceived to be qualified enough for the advanced category colorings, that entry will then be moved for the Advanced Category Coloring Contest.

NEW! Please use the Photoplog Image Gallery (http://mangahelpers.com/photoplog/index.php) or be potentially disqualifed. If you are having trouble, just PM a moderator.

The base colors took longer than I wanted. I am so over my wireless mouse.

I colored Ichigo's sheath red because it wasn't darkened in with tone like Rukia's bow and the strap to the sheath. I figured if it was black in the manga like it is in the anime, it would have been toned in like the shinigami uniform.
