Uhm, I know my signature says "Aiming to surpass Dynamic Dragon", and this isn't even close..
Remember, I'm kinda a newb on coloring, and this is my 5th "project", so don't expect too much..
I was actually going to practice like a maniac untill I got better than DD, then post a few images, but I've been so buissy, so no can do.. :(

Then I just really felt like making a wallpapers with my favorite pictures/scene from the manga, so here goes..

Remember, it's in progress :p :)

I'd love any feedback, I don't care what you say, if it's a suggestion, that's great, if it's "give up as a colorer", that's even better, then I can rub your face in it when I get really good! :p

EDIT:

Changed the link.. again.. and of course a few things in the picture.. it's still in progress, but any respond would be great! :D

EDIT2:

Changed the hair somewhat, hope it's better now..
Updated the Rasengan-part, more quotes regarding the arc, I just love those scenes, with Naruto and Tsunade-sama :)
Different small things..
I mean, it's not just a coloring, it's supossed to be a wallpaper, so it needs to have the right feeling of the situation, so I used some icons you should remember :)

Anyway, it's the coloring that's the hard part :p god damnit.. :p Hair-coloring sucks :p

Re: Wallpaper in Progress..

I like it, it's good for a 5th coloring. There are a few things though. The hair, especially Naruto's hair, needs some work. I see where you were trying to go with it... maybe it's not even done yet because it's a work in progress, but yeah. Hair usually is the hardest part... well, for me it was/is. I just read up on a lot of tutorials on how to color hair, then I developed my own style, I suggest you do the same.

Keep practicing though! ^^

Re: Wallpaper in Progress..

looks like you can make something out of this. i think you should work a bit more on naruto's hair though... but considering that tsunade is still b/w, maybe you left it for later... ^^

it looks like you used a grass pattern on Naruto's hair, and changed the hue. :p

The updated version looks a lot better, but ... yet again, the hair... even though Naruto's hair looks straight and spiky, if you look at spiky hair in real life, it is still a little wavy. Same with Tsunade's hair. Just make the hair a little more wavy and keep your light source in mind while you're doing that, and you're good to go ^^ Yeah, hair is always a pain, but keep going at it!

Re: Wallpaper in Progress.. [updated] - please respond :p :)

Yup, don't pay any more attention to this version.. I've redone it several times now, but I won't post any new versions untill there's been done some drastic changes.. ..and/if I can somehow make it look somewhat good..
a bit buissy with work and other things tho' , but I'll make time for it..
wondering it I'm gonna move completely away from cell-shading, and see if there's any other way to color manga and still make it look good :)
oh well..
this is starting to be more like a training-session for me than a wallpaper, which is good though :)
but hard as hell too.. hehe, oh well :)
thanks for all the replies too btw :) oh, and Vlado, if you have any suggestions on what would be smart to change, please just let me know :)


This is how it looks at the moment, hope it's moving towards "better"..

perhaps you should be a tad more constructive with your feedback...?

that would be nice :p :)

Edit: TheExa told me to change picture, as it never turns out good if you stick with the same picture over a long period of time..
So maby I should just give it a rest..
I can't figure out anything to change any more, so I guess I'll have to come back to it later or something..
