Seriously. They're vile.
The only things I haven't posted yet are two panels of Sakura that I haven't quite finished yet (it looks finished in the avatar, but it's not quite done yet, believe me). I'll probably post them in a little while with a few other panels I'm working on. I injured my hand though, so it'll be slow progress.Originally Posted by Zoe303
And thank you everyone else for your kind comments! I'm glad you like the thread!

Yeah I knew it! Hope it gets better Amaretti!And thanks for creating your own gallery...and I believe you....I'm suuure you haven't finished yet....suuuree ^^*
dude....my jaw pretty much dropped. i love your colorings. im also looking forward to that tut your thinking about^^BTW, will we see you on DA more often?
UPDATED with four new panels
so you really hate what your handle stands for....kinda weird??
anyways...you have one of he most eye-catching color palettes i've ever seen in my life and being able to have a coloring similar to your style has been seen as a bar for the other colorists here...
how'd you come up with those amazing earth tones? what are you coloring next? you clean these panels yourself right since you don't credit any cleans?
could you please do the naruto-gamakichi poster and the 341 (?) naruto-sasuke fighting stance...willitblend did justice to these panels and i hope to see your own interpretation of them...
pretty please?????? with amaretti biscuits on top...

Yep. I used to clean Bleach for Mangarain, so I like to do it myself. I'm anal like that.Quote:
I thought about doing those, but willitblend and AK totally blew me away with their colourings! I don't think you can get a better interpretation than theirs, so I probably wouldn't be able to offer anything new there.Quote:
Amaretti i must say you are good you are like a inspiration to me as much as paintpixel.
Keep up the awesome work! yeah Amaretti
if you decide to do it, i'm sure a lot more artists are gonna be inspired and a lot more fans are gonna lose their jaws!
btw, maybe you can use them for your tutorial? but probably for the advanced ones though....
i keep hearing about paintpixel...are his/her works also here? any more info on him/her?

Paint Pixel is an artist with a huge reputation across the Naruto fandom, who has influenced and inspired countless artists (including DD), but she hasn't been active for about 2 years now, maybe more? Many people consider her to still to be the best artist the Naruto fandom has seen - even today. Her style is simple, elegant and classic - it hasn't dated.
I've quite a few of her works - I'll post some samples in a separate thread so we don't hijack Amaretti's!
On that note, Amaretti is the only artist I know of to be compared with Paint Pixel which, by itself, is a real accomplishment.

I think Amaretti is even better than paintpixel. Amaretti's style is something I haven't seen before, very original. Anyway, both of them are great artist's.
I agree - they're both wonderful. I love Amaretti's softer, more modern approach, but I like Paint Pixel's for their timeless quality. Incidentally, I think Amaretti's colouring of AL overlooking the city is the best single page colouring - ever. I think that one colouring blows all competition away, or at least, I've yet to see a colouring better than it.
I forgot to ask my questions Amaretti!
Which artists do you get inspired by?
What started you off colouring?
P.S - what part of the UK are you at?

I love the last sakura panel ! good job! and I want to ask you something too ^-^ it's clear that you use a tablet ...duhh so that question drops
ummm ...for a panel like the sakura one you just posted , how long does it take you to color it and in what size (pixels)? I know that you can't say exactly but an estimated time would calm my curiosity also how long does a full page take you (approximatively) to color ?
and besides the questions which kodoman put umm when did you first start coloring on the computer ?
Panels ususually only take me about a day or two (cleaning the panel first eats up loads of time), but those particular Sakura panels took me several days (weeks? i can't remember). I stopped halfway through because I stopped liking the way they looked, but I decided to post them anyway.Quote:
And the new panels I'm doing from the recent chapters are as big as the RAW allows. Kylara has been scanning high res RAWS lately (which is fantastic!) so the individual panels are roughly 1000x800. And if the panels are large on the page, about 2000x1000. Ish.
The older panels that I redraw get enlarged to about that same sort of scale.
Normally about four days, inbetween procrastination and distractions.Quote:
