« on: April 08, 2005, 02:20:10 PM »
Since many of the older images linked in this thread have been moved or lost, I'd like to point new visitors to

the Proj2501 Gallery

More recent pages towards the end of the thread are working fine and can be browsed with images intact.

___________________________________________________

On behalf of Proj, here's the first color job he has ready to share. 

Finally got everythign done.....so here it is.....                                                                     
tell me what u guys think.

And here is is at full res.

My own first comment is, next time don't save it with all that white space.   ;)  And I definitely like the style so far.

It's not working Proj2501, it's your link. Check it and try modifying the first post, the one I fixed (I put correct markups, but the picture doesn't show), posting again and again won't solve the problem.

Nice job on the Guts vs. Roshine page!  Good color palette, and I really like how you handled the lighting; it really looks like Roshine's glowing.  She's supposed to be a luminous bluish-green, but I respect your artistic license.  ;)

I like the way you chose to color the Isidro page graphically, with the primary colors.  It works great as separate panels, especially the two of Isidro spinning, but the page overall doesn't harmonize as well as your Guts vs. Roshine.  The green is also a little "toxic" for my taste, slightly too bright.  Using a less saturated green would help.

But awesome work overall! Have you used Photoshop before? Keep going!

Fucking awsome! There hasn't been a great colorer like litheral (except litheral) since Jon left! Keep up the nice work  :).


P.S.: Whatever happened to that "project" that you and Jon were working on lith? ???

I would expect most of them to wear a silver or grey armor, but I could be wrong.

From the few color pictures we have, the common Neo Hawk soldier's armor is silver/grey yeah, just a natural metallic color. They've usually got some underlying clothes that could be a different color though (or no armor, the archers for example), and each of them is different so it can vary from individual to individual (see Locus' lancers, hard to say for sure as they all have a highly customized armor of some sort)...

As for the major apostles, we know their color patterns from various illustrations, you can check them here.

I did the one with puck fairly quick...I think it looks good without any colors in the backround....i dunno

2nd one is nice like all your other ones, first one looks nice too but a bigger picture of the 1st would make things clearer  ;D

Well photobucket has a history of screwing up like that, I stopped using it because it reduced the resolution to one of my pictures as well a while ago, try using imagetown. Theres other sites out there, but they seem to have slipped my mind for the moment.

It's not photobucket's fault.  It says right on the site that any image larger than 250 kb will be automatically resized.  One easy way to save a bigger image with decent resoluton but below 250kb is to use "save for web" in Photoshop.

Try that, Proj, I'd like to see the last couple bigger, too.  They look really nice.  I love how you colored the middle panel of Puck thinking hard!

The one with Puck is excellent. I love the way he's straining to think.

Your colorations are very well done. The white backround works very well with Puck IMO.  Keep going with the fantastic work. ;D

I really like your style.  You use mostly gradients and let the original sketch do the shading.  That one with Zod is simply increadible, a new benchmark for the normally abused lens flare.  Your color choice on the page of Isidro is interesting though.  I'm not sure if it was intentional, but like someone said you usead all the primary colors for the background.  However, the primary colors you used were from the light spectrum rather than the paint spectrum, which is usually used (the green would have to be substituted for yellow, which might not work for grass).  It looks sort of cool though.  It certainly makes it stand out.

Very nice!  The only thing that kinda bugged me was the brightness of the pink ground.  Maybe making it more of a flesh color would be better? ???
