Trying out something to join people of different skills, in corporate work.  

Someone can post an art sketch, and someone can practice coloring them.

(And you are not limited to just one or the other)

And don't necessary need to spend hours on it, And feel free to tweak around the sketch to better fit for coloring.  All skill levels are welcome.  


For start.. here is a old line drawing for coloring.

I might see and color tmakinens excellent lineart of AJ's char. Nothing more relaxing then some good ol' coloring with no need to worry about pose.

Had to rush it a bit towards the end, but I needed to go. Might give it some last tweaks later. Thanks for the lines tmakinen!

Amazing work as always, Tommy.  Especially love the red hair you captured.  Of course, tmakinen's already wonderful drawing does help alot too :)

@Scarsdale Punk and @Bokatisha: feel free to get some coloring for practice too.  Don't aim for perfection, since imperfection have a nice style and touch of its own.

Jup. There are a lot of textures on dA. I used a grungetexture in multiply on top so the character gets a little texture too, and a papertexture below the character to give the background some more life. And thnx :angel:

And thnx AJ :)

Awsome.  The dynmatic lighting adds on a certain mood to it. I especially like the fur, and the center plates, you give it some real nice texture.  

But maybe color some of the socket in the head skull darker, to better show its a skull.  The bridge of her nose could also use some poping too.  In all cases, its much better than I could of done, very nice indeed.

I like this idea AJ.   There is slightly more chance I might be able to submit a B&W drawing rather than a fully colored one.  (Oh who am I kidding, I need to finish the comic and try to get another done for a buffer if I can :qq:)   Still a very cool contest and I'm looking forward to see the results!

This was fun, actionjack!  I thought your line art was rather good, and it inspired me.  I took some artistic liberty to make some adjustments here and there, but it's mostly true to your line art.  Here's a 1680x1050 wallpaper:

Pro work indeed, alpharat.  You turned a regular line art into fantastical magical grandstical piece of workical.

Hope to see more (but can always depend on your effort)

............................

Also hope to see more lineart/sketches, and people who will color them.  I would of help contribute more with my minor skill, but I don't have the program with me for duration.. so will have to wait.

It's amazing to see the different things that can be done with the same line art through the use of color.
