BD's Newb Colors
« on: April 14, 2008, 02:11:01 AM »
Ok guys,  so I got photoshop 2 days ago, and have been messing around with coloring panels from Grappler Baki, seeing as how that has very few colorists and I was interested in doing them. Was pretty much following CnC's tutorials to the letter. As always critiques are welcome, and the more detailed critics the better, so I'll put what I consider the best(relative to other crap I did) of my colors so far.

Bombs away!

Thanks a lot man, It's definitely much better than the others I did, these large single char panels are much easier to color for me, hoping to do a fight scene next for you guys, hopefully it'll get some people interested in Baki. :guts:

For someone who just got Photoshop 2 days ago it's very nice.  A couple of things that stand out ot me are everything seems to share a similar level of saturation and intensity, so the look is a bit flat.
Also you need to separate the hair from the color of the background, to make it stand out more.  From there you can start making lighting decisions.
I'm sick of following my dreams.  I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later...

^thanks CnC! will go back in and work on it  tomorrow and repost  :guts:

EDIT: Took me longer than expected to repost. Here's the modified version:

Forgive the cruddy lighting attempt >_<

Here's a quick color I did of Baki's father Yuujirou, displaying his Oni Reflex Muscles:
