Title: Oburi's Colors
Post by: Oburi on October 06, 2006, 09:24:27 PM
Okay this is my first ever attempt to even try to mess around with coloring, I didn't want to make a new thread (thanks CnC) so I'll stick it here under the assumption that people are going to give me pointers or instructions on wtf I'm doing. Anyway I know these colors suck, I made this guy look like the flamboyant leader of the gay Kushan squad but I was just messing around with colors and had nothing for reference. I am a complete amateur at this, I basically just learned how to use photoshop within the last hour but theres still much I don't know. Anyway it's berserk related so...

Compared to CnC and the others this looks like some 5 year old kid did this with a crayon (it's not even finished) but it's just a first attempt, I'm sure I'll get better.

Heya Oberi,

I split your post into its own thread as the "tips and tutorials" thread is for just that, tips and tutorials.  If you had a technical question that would be a good place to ask but otherwise post your work in this thread I created for ya.

That aside, you've just made your first step into a much larger world. :)  For one hour of photoshop experience thats pretty good.
Keep at it.  Use reference.  Good luck.

hey, I like it!

It needs some highlights tho, to show light source and texture. 

Good work!

I increased the colors and actually succeeded somewhat in giving Grunbeld some depth. I just threw a shadow over Silat because I'm lazy. But it deff looks better.

I don't think you are an amateur at all... I mean the coloring looks good! o_o I wish my attempts at coloring turned out 1/2 as good. =[

I like how you used soft tones... and the choice of colors was great too for the "flamboyantly gay leader"... XD

Interestin' composition.  But it needs more contrast.  Everything's at the same level of intensity.

Grunbeld is, indeed, looking better.  However the shadow over Silat being lazy shows.  That needs work.

Hey can someone give me some tips on how to make Slann look correct. I'm having trouble getting her colors right. It's when she rises out of the bloody mass in the Qlipheth so I'd tried making it look kinda messy but it just dosn't seem right. Obviously it still needs work as is.

Take a look at this if you want.

(http://skullknight.net/avatars/Slan.jpg)

Or maybe you have already? The key here is to make her "skin" lighter I think, more skin-like basically. You went too heavily with the blue.
Title: Re: Oberi's Colors
Post by: CnC on October 11, 2006, 02:06:30 AM
Hey Oberi,

Whenever I'm in doubt about what color to do I usually just look at reference.  In this case, perhaps find some photos of intestines

I did a _VERY_ quick paintover:

Here's a capture of my desktop (reduced). (http://www.mattbrowning.com/berserk/colors/berserk_oberi_crit_screen.jpg)


Basically I just have a reference photo open and I grab colors from that.  That usually provides me with a rough starting point to gain get a color pallette.  Then I can light it, etc.

End result of the color:
(http://www.mattbrowning.com/berserk/colors/berserk_oberi_crit.jpg)

Keep in mind I didn't do anything except give Guts flat shading, so this is far from a finished pic.  I just wanted to illustrate what I'd do in this sitution.   Of course, there are many different ways to get to an end result.

Good luck

...damn dude, i guess some people are just naturals at it. lol, nah seriously thanks for that reference of the um..cough..small intestines...it's a good reference. Also i found out I'm using an older version of photoshop (as if the newer version will make me that much better)

P.S. How do you specifically get that gradient? Like how how do you get that shading so good?
Title: Re: Oberi's Colors
Post by: CnC on October 13, 2006, 11:44:33 PM
Also i found out I'm using an older version of photoshop (as if the newer version will make me that much better)

I do most of my work in CS1 as CS2 is buggy and can't handle large files very well (most of the coloring work I do is on 4000+ pixel pictures at a minimum).  I think as long as you're using 7 or above you'll be dandy.  Otherwise it might be time for an upgrade.

I hope CS3 is kewl.  Its supposed to be released at the end of the 1st quarter 2007.

P.S. How do you specifically get that gradient? Like how how do you get that shading so good?

--Short Answer--
Shading is just a basic understanding of how light interacts with objects.  The gradient is just a starting point  to indicate light where I then just start darkening to indicate form and shadow.

--Long Answer--
If you look at my layers in the screenshot I took I have a background layer (the original b/w drawing usually), the flat colors (Just flat colors with no shading, I use this to grab colors independently and work on them), the color layer (a copy of the flats layer where I do most of the work), the inks (just the original with either the white knocked out or the layer set to multiply), and finally the traps (color on top of the inks or changing the ink color to something other than black).
So my layers looks like:
--Traps--
--Inks--
--Color--
--Flats--
--Original--

The actual shading part happens on the Color layer.  I can start to indicate light by selecting the desired colors affected from my Flats layer and putting a gradient set to Dodge, Overlay or whatever on the Color Layer.  I then add shadow keeping form in mind (shape of the face, hair, etc.).
This is just one way to approach a coloring.  It all depends on what the material demands.  It could have worked better if I had started dark and painted in the light. Or if the scene might have worked better with doing all the midtones and painting in both light and dark.  Its up to you on how to accomplish the end result but in all cases an understanding of how light works is crucial, imo.

Hope that helped.  :guts:

He's right. If your end result lacks lighting effects, it just won't turn out as good. As harsh as it sounds it's the truth. But the only way to hone your photoshop skills is to practice, practice, practice...

So get boy!

Post by: Oburi on October 15, 2006, 02:27:44 AM
This isn't done yet but I'm going on a vacation so I won't be able to work on anything for a week. I was thinking about merging all the layers together like of Grunbreld and Silat so it doesn't look so cut and paste like. The other pic is part of something i was doing. The color of her skin is wrong but I thought her eye looked cool so I put it up. (http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/4338/newprojcolorednn0.png) (http://imageshack.us)

Anyway yea CnC that was a huge help regardless of the "different strokes for different folks" part.  :casca:  I found it helpful. (http://img183.imageshack.us/img183/246/slannneyens8.jpg)

ACTSHULLY, that's not so untruthful of how it was. Only recently has the militaryís of the world learned that bright colors attract attention and therefore a soldier dies easily. If you look at old paintings or murals or tapestries, you will notice that soldiers wore bright red, green, gold, whatever. Knights and Nobles wore all different colors with all different designs. So, it's not that hey were necessarily gay, it was more like, semi-subconscious egotistical vanity...of men.

Bit off-topic maybe, but the reason people wore such recognisable and visible clothes was to make themselves more noticeable deliberately not in a vain manner but in order to identify friend from foe and to quickly recognise where your leaders where.  When war changed from the distance of an arms reach to rapid firing weapons where you see your enemy through a sight if was no longer beneficial to be recognisable.  This was because the challenge was not in telling friend from foe in a chaotic close quarters battle but in manoeuvring  your forces to a position where they can take the enemy by surprise from a distance.
Title: Re: Oberi's Colors
Post by: CnC on October 25, 2006, 08:16:44 PM
Don't anyone start a historical accuracy argument here, please.  This isn't the place.  You want to discuss stuff like that there are threads already out there where that can take place.

Regardless of whether or not Oberi wants to give the soldiers bright colored clothing or not, the point of the criticism was to show that despite the color choice there was not enough attention given to how those materials react to light.  They lack the appropriate shading and contrast to make them believable.

So keep the comments/criticisms constrained to the pictures, please.
Title: Re: Oberi's Colors
Post by: Ariel on October 26, 2006, 12:04:40 AM
Ok then. Both are true! *everyone is happy now*

I don't agree with you're critique, but seeming as how I'm not allowed to argue with the moderator and administrator...

I think you need to finish the coloring, you don't need the shading. A comic is just black and white and doesn't always have the shading, and everyone thinks the pictures look just fine.

And because of this, Slan can be any colour you want her to be. She can be hot pink or white or pocka-dotted.

I like the colors around the single figure. It deffinitly draws the eye.


Yes it is, in this case.

Are you going to back up that argument?

You're allowed to argue with anyone you want Ariel, so long as you have some ground to stand on, IMO.

Now, I'm not tryin to get into it with you, but I need to speak my peace on what you posted.

We really shouldn't critique unfinished artwork. I kno anyone who did was only doing it was a POSITIVE INTENT.
Shading and lighting is CRUCIAL if you want your piece to look good (yes it can look good without it), but taking some more time and paying more attention and adding realistic detail (lighting etc) will make a 'coloration' look MUCH better, again IMHO.

As to Slan being any color you want...you know where I'm gonna go with that.

That's quite a disputable point you're making here. Things are the color the author intends them to be. You can make Slan pockadotted, sure, but that'd be ugly, stupid AND inaccurate. That being said, if a character's color scheme isn't clearly defined, of course it's up to people to color it as they like, to some extent. All of this assuming one cares about staying faithful to the work (s)he's coloring.

Are you going to back up that argument?

That's not an argument, just a fact. I don't feel the need to back it up when you could simply research it yourself.

The problem here of course not being the diversity of the palette used (although as far as I know a red dominant would probably be more appropriate in this case), but the crayon-like quality of the colors. Oberi acknowledged this himself and he was right to (not to mention that it's obvious). Knowing your errors is the first step toward improvement. And sure enough, he's improved since. I'm not sure what you're trying to do exactly, tell people that the guy's face being yellow and his beard bright red is historically accurate?

Anyway, I could just post colored pictures from the Berserk TCG showing Kushan soldiers colored tastefully, but I have a feeling that wouldn't stop you from believing whatever you want to.

Slan can be any color the artist wants her to be. Who cares if she's not the authorís color? Do you read anything other than Bersek? Manga artist's colorful artwork CHANGES colors. Who knows why. Probably because it's artistic. It's creative. It doesn't matter what style an artist draws his fanart, or what story a fanfiction writer writes. The point is that the artist is having fun. That's all that matters.

And who are you guys to tell someone else what the rules of art are, when it's not YOUR art they are making fanart of. No one has the right to tell other people what to say, do, or how to make art.

I don't think its flamboyantly gay, but bright colors from the vanity of high class IS fact. You stated a random opinion as if it were a fact, without saying why. (Now, thatís a pointless post.)

Sure the artist said it looked 'flamboyantly gay' but being colorful is not a historical inaccuracy, especially when dealing with the bravado of fighters. People manufacture and buy colorful ornamental clothing.

If you are talking about this art piece in a historically accurate sense, then the wealthy, the powerful, and people who wanted to scare, or overawe their enemies would dress to match. Miuraís medieval artistic conception of European Middle-Ages was not necessarily wrong, but itís too drab. (Even though you canít tell because itís black and white.)

Just look at the Roman royal color, purple. The most expensive color in that day and time.

Even today people dress like peacocks, look at hip-hop culture, and next time you're at Wall-mart take a look at those shiny black pants with bright yellow stripes and fancy logo over the butt you're thinking of buying. Pretty gay, huh? and everyone else looks that way too. "I've got the money, I've got the pants." that's how it is, and that's how it always was.

At the end of the day, the point I was trying to make in my first post was that the artist, Oberi, was too hard on himself, and I enjoyed looking at his art piece. I wanted to encourage him to finish the piece, the way HE wanted to. I didnít color inside of the lines, or in fact, ever read the rules about what color the insides should be, and thatís what Iíd like to encourage all artists to feel. No art is wrong or right, whether itís based off of someone elseís art or not.

Can't really speak for Aaz but I do believe that he referred you to research the art books to see how Miura intended for the colors to be. In that sense there is no need to reinforce that fact since the guidelines are provided for.
I didn't notice that the color itself was so much an issue here (well until you brought it up) as much as the  sahadeing and light was. In that sense, of course artistic liberties are welcome and are not necessarily restrained by historic references (Schierke has green hair for god's sake). The constructive part of this thread had to do with improving oneself, Oberi himself didn't fell put upon by the opinions of others, he even welcomed them. So there is no real need to "defend" him IMHO.

Post by: Aazealh on October 26, 2006, 07:21:49 AM
I'm going to reply to you out of kindness so you can learn something today, and let CnC decide whether the whole thing stays or goes.

Slan can be any color the artist wants her to be. Who cares if she's not the authorís color?

Anyone that wants to portray the character accurately cares.

Do you read anything other than Bersek?

Yeah. Do you read Berserk yourself though? Doesn't seem to be the case.

Manga artist's colorful artwork CHANGES colors.

What? Miura's colors are pretty consistent in general, if that's what you were talking about. Schierke's hair is green and no other color, rage on that for a while.

And who are you guys to tell someone else what the rules of art are, when it's not YOUR art they are making fanart of. No one has the right to tell other people what to say, do, or how to make art.

He asked people to tell him how to improve his skills, to give him "instructions and pointers," and to make some critiques of his works so he could progress. I don't think you've really read this thread, or that you really care about what people are doing or wanting. Do you even know Oberi? I sure do. He posted this thread because he was inspired by other people here, and we (CnC above all) are just being helpful to him and trying to assist him in his practice. You're just trying to rebel about nothing here ("you guys are art-nazis!"), you're completely missing the point. This forum isn't the right place to have your adolescence crisis in, I'm sorry. All you're doing is spoiling this thread with meaningless and laughable rants.

What, research how flamboyantly gay this art peice is?

Research how not to make an ass of yourself?

I don't think its flamboyantly gay, but bright colors from the vanity of high class IS fact. You stated a random opinion as if it were a fact, without saying why. (Now, thatís a pointless post.)

Haha, now you're trying to be offensive, eh? Sanguinius told you why people wore bright colors in battle, and he's right. You should listen to people that know what the hell they're talking about. Also, I stated a fact that I know from studying Berserk as well as from knowing a bit about history (mostly from having good taste and knowing when a coloration is realistically done or not). And I was only replying to your post in the first place, which was truly pointless in that it addressed a point nobody cared about, uselessly reviving a non-issue and pathetically attempting to show off some misconceived knowledge, all of this with no real goal as the coloration you commented on was just a first try from Oberi.

being colorful is not a historical inaccuracy, especially when dealing with the bravado of fighters.

Well, nobody said otherwise. Not that historical accuracy matters at all here anyway, since Berserk takes place in a fictional world.

Miuraís medieval artistic conception of European Middle-Ages was not necessarily wrong, but itís too drab.

Jesus, you're so ignorant. The mix of ignorance and arrogance is always the worst. These Kushan soldiers aren't from the "European Middle-Ages," so I suggest you just shut up before you embarrass yourself any further. I'm not even going to comment about how Miura's apparently not knowing what he does next to you. You obviously don't know anything about history, so I think you should drop this discussion altogether.

At the end of the day, the point I was trying to make in my first post was that the artist, Oberi, was too hard on himself, and I enjoyed looking at his art piece. I wanted to encourage him to finish the piece, the way HE wanted to.

No art is wrong or right, whether itís based off of someone elseís art or not.

Oberi wasn't too hard on himself. He was right, and that's how you progress. Lying to someone and telling him an imperfect piece of art is perfect is doing him a disservice. This is only common sense.

Do you know who the Vikings were?

I know that they're not the Kushans, yeah. My poor girl, you're really just humiliating yourself here. You should stop talking about things you don't know anything about.

Heheh, Griff.

The only other problem I notice about your colors, Oberi, that all of these good critiques haven't touched on as much yet is that you are using a lot of really saturated colors.  For example, the Slan one, while she is a purplish hue,your purple was very saturated.  If you think about knocking back the saturation when you pick colors, you might get a palette you are happier with.

And before this thread goes down the toilet completely, I would like to just make one comment to Ariel about all this.  There are rules for artwork.  You need to understand them before you can break them.

Thanks!

Regarding this feud in the colorations, I did appreciate your comments Ariel, they did make me feel all warm and cozy inside. Positive reinforcement is the key! But don't feel like you have to defend yourself any furthere. These guys can be bastereds ( :serpico:) But they are smart bastereds, and you can't really argue with them, or,  you can but it's pointless.  I know what you were trying to say about the historical accuracy though, I kinda already knew that, I was just being purposely hard on myself because I know the Berserk elites (Aaz,Walter,CnC,Proj etc) might tell me that the colors are wrong, "technically the Kushans wore this and that and blah blah". Thats all. Just letting everyone know that I KNOW the kushans didn't dress like this, it was a first attempt so I was just messing around, I still am too, I'm just more accurate to Miura's intentions. It is a fantasy, Miura's fantasy. Of course you can change the color of things and give some different perspectives, but like Aaz said, if you change the color of Schierke's hair...then it ceases being creative and becomes wrong! For some things (lot's of things) Miura has already commented on what color's they are, so anything different is inaccurate. So with a little hope, and maybe some magic, we can put this all behind us and move on in a positive direction.

Exactly, it's the same for art as it is math or science; you have to know what's inside the box before you can think outside of it (wow, and I totally forgot I used this same saying in my fake 280 thread ramblings, but it's a good cliche =).

P.S. You know I didn't mean that part about you guys being bastereds right? ...guys?

All I know is you left me off your questionable Berserk "elites" list. I don't know if I should be insulted or if it's a wake up call to the fact I haven't seriously posted about it in months (or that we're going on months without Berserk).

I think the best thing that 'color-ers' need to realize is that you aren't coloring YOUR OWN artwork. Your coloring someone else's. There needs to be a level of respect given to the piece. Especially if your going to post your work in a community like SK.
And when people critique, as i said before, I don't believe there's any malice in it. The best thing to do if you want to improve is to leave your ego at the door.

Don't let this spree of nonsense deter you Oberi...keep practicing and keep posting! I love seeing everyone's work...it reminds me I'm not the only loser who colors manga :(

Well, that's why you're asking people here to give you advice, right? :serpico: So that real, professional artists like TheSkyTraveller and CnC that actually do it for a living can help you improve your art. That's a change from the gazillion amateur know-it-all art wannabes that dwell on the Internet.

P.S. You know I didn't mean that part about you guys being bastereds right? ...guys?

IMA GOAN BAN U!!1! :puck:        (it's spelled "bastard")

I think the best thing that 'color-ers' need to realize is that you aren't coloring YOUR OWN artwork. Your coloring someone else's. There needs to be a level of respect given to the piece. Especially if your going to post your work in a community like SK.

Wise words from a wise man.

Anyway, where's your new coloration Oberi? You've been slacking! :puck:

Jk this actually would be my first coloration though, I did in paint like two years ago. Yea I have been slacking. Here's something to hold you over though. My dad is an artist, not professionally, but he does lots of drawring in his free time. I try to get him to do cool stuff so here's a picture he drew from the manga, which he's never read, but does like!

I can post more of his work once in a while if you want. Not all Berserk related though, some sin city stuff too! Wish I could take credit for these.

Well, he's pretty good if he did this just by looking at it. I'd like to see more of his drawings whenever that'll be possible.

And I like the sin city pic.
