heres a weak attempt at the cover. Didnt really try too hard as the cover isnt hq, but the cleaning was done well. I used both matsuos and vlados covers. Anyone can use.

Fuck you, that's a great cover! great colouring, so stop rubbing it in to us that can't do cool stuff like that! :p

Nah, I love you :p but God damnit, that's a nice coloured picture.. so don't act like it's easy, because I sure as hell can't do stuff like that..
Teach me! :)
Tell me which programs I have to use, give me a turtourial, whatever, I just want to make my drawings cooler..
Oh, and a turtuorial for drawing manga would be cool to :)
Okay, kinda off topic, I know, but I'd really like to be able to make images like that :)

I dont really do all that much, just try to imagine or related things to the way things look in life. For skin, I select a color that makes sense, and for the shadows on the skin, I change the color diagonally down to the right on the color scale till it gives a good contrast an put it opposite of the light direction. If I dont think it contrasts enough Ill burn it a bit and blend it in with some smudging. I guess the best tip I can give is not to be afriad of certain areas being too intense. When I started out, all my colors looked kind of dull because while you could see the shadows, they really didnt look like shadows. If you go outsite and its a really bright day, or there is only one sourse of light, the shadow the light creates is usually strong, not just a tad darker, to thats the principal I followed. Same thing with clothes, pick you cloth color, and a little light refraction, and anything else that you think would be overshadowed, just burn it a bit. And know when to have it faded in or an immediate contrast. All of that info you can get by looking at light hits the clothes and stuff like that. Apply a little bit or reality just to get an Idea.

As far as why it was a weak attempt, Kakashis black shirt is one of the things I could have done better on, I only had black, and the light part, but since the cleans I was using werent from high quality scan I didnt bother with that and wasnt really trying to get anything perfect. It came out fine, but even then Im still a tad dissapointed with the kakashi cover. If anything I liked the way the book came out, but was dissapointed with the gloves, especially cause the cover was kind of odd and an unidentifiable black thing over the metal plate. Im just waiting for batanga and vhea to come and show me up. Probably DD as well. I only use photoshop cs2, but sometimes in the beginning I would use bryce 5 for sky backgrounds. Bryce is a 3d landscape modeling program that Im not all that great with.

I was thinking about doing the kyuubi page that nytro did as well, but once the hq comes out. I was kind of debating on whether the black balls should be a flat color, or super smooth and reflective. What do you guys think?

with black, i prefer to have them flat, and in this case flat is even more obvious ( to me ), as it's like some dark blobby matter ( "black often looks grey when highlighting" - Allessio Cavatore ). Good Luck!

If I colour the orb, I think I will not make it look solid. I will make it a bit reflective like the chakra jello when Naruto has 3 tails. Simple black or red orb wont look too interesting. Who knows? *shrugs*

Ah, for the hair, it is really hard and I am still trying to colour Kakashi's hair. :s I'll try and do better next time.

kakashis hair is a bit odd to color, but the thing I noticed wrong in yours is that its too linear, you have the shaded part going all the way to that one center point. Tha makes it look like his hair is laying flat. Instead create the shaded areas in bits and pieces. as for the chakra ball, Ill probably do both flat and shiny, just for the sake of making soemthing shiny.

Yeah, I know the hair is wrong. It does need to be improved. Maybe I should do more "> > >" than just concentrating on that one point. Thanks. I'll keep that in my head. It's just that I have seen too many Naruto's "^^^^^" that the hair becomes too spiky and stiff. I want to do something more hair like instead of "^ ^ ^". Anyway, I'll try and do better next time.

I´m now coloring the dark orb page.

I´ll make it look like the palantír from the Lord of the Rings. Jet black with a fiery red "heart."



Good job all!
