Very quickly, this is a colouring exercise based on this black & white scan.

    yay monchi is alive! :D

    wow pretty colouring, I esp like the metal textures :) Tutorial, um, just general how to colour please (like what kind of brushes you used, dodge? burn? how to set up the layers etc). Oh yeah, did you colour on one layer or separate into different layers?

  3. Chloe Retired Moderator Mar 03, 2007

    This is too awesome! The coloring is fabulously done and it just looks so neat.

    Yeah, for the tut, general coloring, like Maple said, (especially the metal x_x) would be coolio.

    so did you find a new artist to love? i found tanaka long time ago and since then, i love his artwork.
    mmm. the colors are great. you did a excellent work here. the lines seems a little strange, but isn't something really significant.
    as i said in the original scan, if is a tanaka work, fav for reflex ^^'

    Awesome colouring! Well, if you could smudge the drawing-like shades, it would be better.
    Yah, I wanna see your tut on colouring as well. Anyway, good luck for the contest! :D

    Amazing! The shades in here give very good effects and the details are just so much work when you see it in full view. Something like this is defiantely worth looing at. I'm not sure how you do it, but definately looking at this took a lot of practice. Anyways good luck in the contest! ;)

  12. DarthTofu Mar 05, 2007

    This is really amazing Monchi!
    Good luck with the contest!

    I'm really impress by your colouring.
    It's smooth and looks detailed.
    I have to say you have a really good eye for lightning.
    Thanks for sharing your tips with it :)
