That's not exactly what he means.  Most published black and white manga itself is composed for and meant to be in black and white.  Any art Miura intends to be in color will have different techniques, rules of composition etc, from all the way back in the sketch phase that work intended to be in black and white.  Coloring any black & white manga by a good artist who did not intend to leave some of the visual work to a colorist, is more for fun and to see what you can do than ever an improvement on it. 

For a counter-example, you can really do great stuff with black and white Mbius art because most of it was composed with the idea in mind of maybe going back and doing watercolors later.

This exactly, couldn't have said it better myself!

I love the Skellig color you did, Lithrael!  :ubik: Your attention to detail is great, lighting, shading and all. One of the things I appreciate about your coloring is that you seem to keep color choices for clothes, accessories and such true to what I've seen in the color illustrations that Miura has done of the characters. I think that's really neat!  :guts:

Yoo guys I have been deep in the grasp of like not doing very many stuff but in the background I've been working on one of the two page spreads forever.  I'm getting close to done so here's a preview. 



Hopefully I'll be back soon with the whole shebang.

That's just beautiful  :judo:
And also, was this particular coloring done digitally or done by hand?

Looks great Lith, looking forward to the completed piece!

Uhh, I'm pretty sure Lithrael didn't bust out her crayons for this. :schierke:

Great work Lith, as usual! The rich green color of the forest floor has just the right amount of yellow, and Serpico's cloak stands out nicely as a result, and yet without clashing. Impressive!
