The coloring is amazing.
What did you use to color it?

I actually WAS making a tutorial but Hypercam makes the audio from my mic go off time and it's an hour long. I can edit the post and add it if you would like. But thanks!

I really like it, but the only thing I really see wrong with the coloring is that the coloring of strands in the hair are very messy and don't follow the hair itself. Try and get a small brush and then change it to the britstle texture and follow the hair.
ex.


Sure, it may take more time, but it's worth it and makes the coloring look cleaner.

I reaalllyyyy should be critiquing the things in the crit thread, but you're asking for it and you're easy. So here goes, I guess.

I am going to break up the constant stream of people constantly worshipping everything you do and be honest with you. Because this is not good. It's not bad, definitely not bad. Heck, I'm worse than you are. But it also does not deserve the gazillion bajillion "this is perfect and beautiful and nothing is wwrong hail fuko-chan" comments that you get.

You know where your light source is. Good. It's a very awkward light source, though, because it is directly to the right and to the front of her. Typically, if your light source is not the sun or standard indoor illumination, you should show that light source or go out of your way to make it clear that you are using a non-standard light source (sharpen shadows, change the colour, add a freaking background for once in your life).

Colour scheme. I'll admit, I have no idea how it works, but it does not work like this. Ask Abbey about it because she can shade like a master, but usually you should move the little pointer thing? Keep the saturation?

Also, clothing. I posted some clothing refs I doodled in the crit thread, check them out. Or, better yet, use appropriate photographs that demonstrate how cloth folds and how colours work when you're shading.

I agree with Makki. It's not bad, but it could use work. I understand you use a mouse, so I won't comment on your technique, but I will comment on the coloring.


The shading is really intense and it's kind of hard to look at. Don't shade it so dark, try and make it brighter. The contrast is rather overwhelming.

You are shading it too dark. Don't shade with a really dark blackish color, it makes it dull.

What can you do is shade it with relative colors. By that I mean taking your base color, moving the hue slider to the right/or left depending on which is warmer and slightly lowering the brightness. you can keep the saturation the same or even make it more saturated depending

For example, you could do this:



See how it gets bluer every shade? That's what really helps make the colors dynamic, rather than flat and dull. For a highlight I often choose something bright and striking.

Never shade white with black, grey, or any variant. Try shading it with muted yellows, blues, or purples.

Your shading itself seems to come out of nowhere, like you just airbrushed a darker color wherever it looked good. In my opinion it's too soft, but eh, different strokes for different folks.

Clothing folds don't work that way, but I'm crap at folds so I can't really explain.

Thanks everyone! XD

@Makkine
Oh, thanks a lot. I really didn't know that. I'm kind of new with light source. But I'll defiantly work on that. :]

Okay thanks. I'll check the clothing thinger out sometime. :]

@Abbey I wasn't shading it with black, at all.
But changing colors I never thought about. I basically only did that with the skin. I'll try this the next time I color :]

What I'll do is make a new coloring thing and try out what everyone had suggested. Maybe it could help me with a new technique. : )

It looks like you were shading it with black, almost. The color is very dull. I didn't know how else to word it but yeah. The shading was too dark and static. Razz

Glad it helped~ Can't wait to see your next try. :3
