Heh!  Witchcraft would be easier!   Thanks guys.   :serpico:

Just for fun today I did a panel from 316.  It's got a lot of text, but it's such promo-image-friendly text!



I didn't hit the moonlight-ey stride I got with the last one of Guts outside but I'm having fun trying to figure out properly moody lighting nonetheless.

That's great! I totally love where this one is going. The only thing that I noticed was that in comparison to the way the other characters are lit, Isma's hair is a bit too bright. Then again, maybe I'm still new to the idea of Isma's hair being that color... I was rooting for redhead!

I'm not an expert, but maybe if you were to ... grayen... up the hair color just a tad?

Desaturate!  Good idea.  I just tried that and it still looks pretty bright so the first draft really must have been too bright.  A lot of the color snuck in cause I used a bright aqua to lighten up her ziptone and then forgot about it!   :farnese:

Anyway, still pretty bright but should be better:

I'll say. Nice color choice for Isma's hair. It reminds me of a special girl in Berserk. :slan:

Hehee, yeah...

Thanks guys!  I'll play with it more later.  I need to find better reference sources than google!  Searching for 'moonlight' just gets you four pages of some dick on CBS trying to look sexy.  God damn I hate what Twilight has done to pop culture.  I remember when I didn't give a shit about Buffy.  Sure there was the occasional sighing fangirl to ignore, but the media hardly ever shoved 'shmexy' vampires in my face while I was trying to get on with unrelated things.

Already got a color request from episode 317!

Page 8, top 2 panels. Guts' smile at Schierke and Schierke looking like a badass holding her hat with Ivarella yelling.

PLEEEEASE!?

Gobol:  That image caught my eye too.  I'll be sure to hit it soon.

Griff:  Hahaha omg.  Should I use the composite you made?  I'll see what I can do.  I'll ask Proj if he has a WIP I can steal - I know he said he tried it once.

While I'm at it I got a request for the spread in 298 of the recently unleashed evil - a mess of monsters with the prawn, Grunny and Zodd at the top and Griff on his horse at the bottom - I feel like I've seen this image in color already though.  Has anyone seen that spread colored or am I imagining things?

No matter, I can't wait to see your color choices Lith, I know they'll be awesome. :casca:

Adoooorable! :casca: I especially like those tiny touches of pink on Schierke's face. I barely noticed them at first, but it adds a great sense of dimension to the picture.

I love it. Love it, love it, love it. Thank you so much for doing this! Guts is such a badass.

Cap'n Skullybeard!   :troll:



Full size here:  http://img862.imageshack.us/img862/7295/32007clr.jpg

Proper name:  Captain Bearded Skeleton, of the good ship Shark Rider Captain Shark Rider, whose bowsprit is home to the equally awesome figurehead of the Captain Shark Rider.

ETA: please lord can Schierke call upon the spirit of the wood to animate that figurehead at the peak of some epic battle?  I would die happy!

"Captain Shark Rider" is the name of the ship itself actually. The figurehead is a literal representation of the name, like the Sea Horse's own figurehead.

Wow, gorgeous! I was hoping somebody would take advantage of the dynamic angle in this shot. Thanks Lith, this really brightened up my afternoon. :ubik:

That's awesome, Lith! I love it ... But I think you drew him with a little too much personality here. Afterall, he's just a husk of a corpse now, with no soul or remnant of his former persona.

Haaaha.  Reminds me of Shaun of the Dead, when Shaun says something like that right before zombie Phillip crankily leans up to get the rock & roll station off the radio.

Oh my! He is beautiful isn't he?  I love how slimy you made him look.  It's always so striking to see color on these drawings since I'm so used to seeing them in black and white. :ubik:

Oh god, I thought we had those all sandboxed in that other thread! This is no good, look at what's happening to you Walter.  :judo:
Just stay away from my home with that!


Lithrael, I know you've done these for a while now. I'm kinda getting into the photoshop thing. Curious, about how long did it take you to do something like this with all the shades/etc? And I no doubt plan on using your tutorial for help.
