Looks nice, I'm looking forward to the sea monsters. I like the paintover too, it looks quite masterful.

I can't wait for your new stuff Lith! The anticipation is almost as bad as it is for a new episode  :guts:

A billion years later and still all I have is a work in progress.   :sad:  Ah well.  Advice welcomed!  What color should our dear possibly-departed sea beastie be?  How bout the soldiers' uniforms?  And what kind of lighting (I should try to use LIGHTING, lol)? 

And anyone got a preference for a page I should tackle from 310?

Looking good, Lith. I like the aqua blue that you're using for the ghost ship creature, so I wouldn't change that too much or at least try to go with similar colors. As for the soldiers, I think red and yellow would look kind of cool mixed in with the silver armor. As for tackling a page from 310, I'd love to see a colored picture of the one I'm using for my avatar (ulterior motive: to replace current scan with colored picture). :guts:

Awesome! Your colors are always very close to what I imagine them to be in my head.  I might add some more specular to the beast; By that I mean extreme highlights, the thing just erupted from the water and it's going to be almost pure white where the water is dripping off. : ) I Love your work.  Keep it up!

From green/brown to grey to red/orange, like a real octopus. You've got the choice. :slan:

How bout the soldiers' uniforms?

Check out traditional conquistadores costumes. :iva:

Lith, I don't know if you plan on coloring anything from the latest episode, but if you do, may I request the colorization of the panel where Schierke squirts water out her nose onto Isidro's face? It's hilarious and cute.

Aws.  Sure, I'll add those to my potential colors.   :serpico:

Meantime, Death May Die and a few other colorists have inspired me to finally do a new photoshop tutorial.  Sadly I didn't get too far tonight but to tide anyone over till I can get the rest up, here's a sample photoshop file (in progress) showing how I set up my colors lately.  Right click n download.

http://www.lithrael.com/berserk/312_16_attack_draft.psd

It uses groups and clipping layers; most versions of photoshop should support them.

ETA:  Tutorial now up!  Right over here.

Awww I know I been slacking when I get a 100 days zombie thread warning when I post.

Anyway FINALLY finished those sea monsters! 


And I realised I never actually put a link for the Schierke Tentacles in this thread, so here's that.


Whoooo....  hurry up June 25!  I wanna see 313!   :beast:

Thanks guys!  Just for the hell of it I did the rest of that page with Schierke (Ismaboobies!)



Not happy with the bottom left panel but not sure how to fix it..  Ah well at least the boobies were fun  :carcus:
