Coloring #01

Hey guys~ I'm still here, just haven't been iconing lately (again). In any case, I recently tried to color some manga panels, and instead of just letting them sit on my harddrive, I figured I might as well share them here to liven up the place somewhat!

Series: ALMIGHTYx10 by Mizuto Aqua
Characters: Jyuu (Tohga) & Ounomiya Ten
Comments: I did this around August, when I got into the series. I was crazy enough to select all the screentones in their hair and skin with the pen tool haha. I didn't do any shading/highlighting for the rest, because I'm not really confident about that.

Series: +Anima by Mukai Natsumi
Character: Husky
Comments: I started this one on Monday and finished it yesterday. I actually did some shading here, I just added them randomly where I thought they should be, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's not correct. You can also see I was sloppy in the end and forgot some places xD I wanted to give it this "watery" feeling, but didn't know how to pull it off, so I just left it as it was.

I'd prefer it if they weren't used to make any graphics or icons, but if you do, please atleast credit me.

Icon tutorial #02

A new tutorial, requested by soifon, who wanted to know how I made my colored manga icons.

Done in Photoshop 7.0, but it should be translatable for other programs ^^

Note: I usually color my icons before I crop them, because I find it easier to color images that way, but since I don't have it in the original size, let's just pretend I colored it after I cropped the base :P

Icon tutorial #01

Because paperjetpilot asked for a tutorial. This is my first time writing a tutorial, so I hope it's easy to understand ♥ This is only meant to be a guide, so please don't follow it step by step, but use some of your own creative juices as well :D
