Hey, guys.

I've been experimenting with a bunch of different coloring styles lately, and this time I decided to try a bit of a sharper and more realistic type of shading on Karin... I'm hating how it's turning out, though, so I'm just gonna pass on this one. I still spend quite a bit of time on it, so I'll post it just for the heck of it.


I think I'll try cel-shading next.

the clothes turned out really nice but the shades on the skin are too desaturated; they need to be more reddish/brownish. It looks pretty nice still, especially the stomach.

Yep, I agree that it came out pretty nicely, at least in my eyes

only thing I find weird about it is her face...and that her hair, pants, and stockings haven't been done yet!

Thanks. I'm not proud of this, I'm just posting this for the sake of posting ^_^.
EbbFlowe: They haven't been done because I abandoned this, as I said in the description.

Anyway, here's a Sasuke I submitted to the contest:


I actually enjoyed coloring this one, unlike Karin. :P

I had little choice regarding what to do with the hair - in my stupidity I accidentally saved the PSD file after flattening and resizing Sasuke before getting to his hair, so I wasn't really able to go into detail with 1 layer and such image size. I'm not very pleased with it myself, but I don't mind it too much. I would, however, suggest that you're a bit more gentle with your language and manners when you give criticism. :amuse

Thanks for the compliments, guys. Seeing how well received it is, I guess I'll start working on it again on Sunday (after my exams).

Oh, and for anyone who's interested, here's and old (and slightly lame) drawing of Naruto.

well done, you seem to be doing fine i think. maybe karin's tummy looks just a tad too fluffy, but then again, maybe that's just me...! ^^ ...or, my taste in women... xD

Thanks for the compliments, guys. I've been working on a major coloring project of a certain page from last week's chapter, and I'll post it today. I'm very pleased with it myself, so I can't wait to post it. ;)
