Just out of curiousity, did you intentionally chose a small resolution to make it harder for the advanced category?

Hmm, I guess this just happens to be in this resolution. Do you need a better one?

I'm not interested in working on a DB/OP page, but it'd be nice if the pages could have a higher resolution in future challenges.
Something from 2000px height upwards would be nice.
Especially if you pick a page with so much detail work.

It was the full resolution that the lineart artist provided, so we're sticking with it.

For this round, we'll be sticking around with this, but noted your feedback for the next one. Thanks. :)

Is there a way we could get a color guide for the characters. I'm not a fan of either manga/anime, so looking up characters is more than a challenge. It's just hard to commit to a color not knowing if it's correct.

Thanks in advance

Hmm...the series is actually Cross Epoch - collaboration between Dragon Ball and One Piece. It's up to your imagination how you want to colour it ;)

Now that I know it's Cross Epoch I can google it...and find the official full color spread on this site....hmm. Well now I'll have to willfully deviate from the colors just to keep mine unique.:eyeroll

Yes, maybe that's why it's better not to know what's the series at all and use your imagination :)

Only one submission, so no voting...do you guys want to suggest something, or should we trash this category on the next contest? It was created by request of the users, we're kinda sad about the lack of submissions =[

Well, I didn't enter because as was already mentioned, it was a pretty small resolution that is also very, very detailed. I know we're supposed to be veteran colorists, but that shouldn't mean overwhelming us with required details just to prove that point.

Plus, I just plain was too busy to put any serious time into coloring lately. :(
