I like the desaturated colors a lot.  I do think that there needs to be a little something more punched up though, possibly just brightening Ganishka's eyes by using a lighter value.  There wouldn't need to be any color changes done, and it would bring the focus out even more.  You really captured the atmosphere well!  It feels like it's cold and windy in there.

This is how I envision entire volumes of berserk being inked. Nicey.

please, I beg you, undertake the project of coloring in the entire manga...You could probably meet Miura if you completed such a feat.

Hahah, for free? And it'd take decades to do it alone, too.

Hmm, I wouldn't be so sure about that. Now that we're on the subject of coloration though, I really wish Jets comics would republish the early Berserk volumes with the color panels actually painted like in the original AH episodes. They looked frigging great originally, and in the volumes in B&W it just doesn't look good. I know I'd buy them all again if they did that. End of digression.

In case you're replying to me, I meant the panels that Miura painted in the first place. There's not a lot of them and they look a lot better in their original colored form than in B&W. Otherwise I also like the B&W better, as long as it's what was intended and not just for cheap printing issues.

Agreed, the black and white versions in the volumes don't look that great.  I have the Berserk Illustrations book though (for the manga, not the anime) so there are a few of them in there and they look great.

At first I thought those were pencil sketches, but after getting the first art book courtesy of my loving girlfriend, I now know better.  Does look WAY better in color, in B&W they're all wearing lipstick.

Anyways, that one isn't quite up to your usual quality Lith.  Some of the color in the lower left side doesn't quite stay in its boundaries.  There's also a but too little contrast with the nobles.  It still looks better than I could do though, I love the colors you chose.  Ganishka looks increadible.

Heh, yeah, it was a rushed one.  I was trying to see if I could do a decent color in a mere four hours or so (I really need to learn to work faster).  I'll finish it properly 'later.'  The desaturated colors on the clothes are only about half legitimately meant to represent misty dimness, mostly it's just cause I still suck at coloring clothes and crowds, for the moment.

I find I can get good results pretty fast coloring in this sort of Miura Mist: wind whipped clouds, dust, fog....  pity about all the damn nobles standing in front of it.

Thanks for the feedback and advice, everyone!

Heheh, very nice Lith. :guts: The light halo in the tiger's eyes is a tad too bright to my taste though, but that still kicks ass.

Sweet!  Nice work.  Back up to par.  Guts armor is truly impresive.  I'll always marvel at how sharp and crisp your colors are.

As a special supplement to the current episode of Berserk (264) I did quick wash colors for the entirety of the Pontiff's vision.  Whee!
