    Electric Nightmares

    Hi everyone, My name is Luis Perez and I'm an aspiring Concept Artist. I went to college for Graphic Design and during of my 4 year tenure I fell in love with the Concept Art created by the entertainment industry.

    I'll be honest and just put it out there that I lost my direction on this piece. It's a personal creation and I'm basically just looking for pointers on the coloring of the piece (since the inks have been long since "finished").

    Nevertheless, any constructive pointers are welcome! How can the piece become "finished"? I have a tough problem in which when I get in this bind I usually just stop, but I don't want that to happen for this piece.

    I've placed the original pencil/inks below the main image for any referencing you may want to do. Thanks guys, in advance, for your help!

    I did a paint over to show you one way to handle the coloring to give you more pop. Get some cooler colors in the shadows and make sure the reflected lights have direction from below this will give everything more unity

    It's a neat concept that has some potential if it's tightened up more. But to be honest my favorite is the line drawing. There's a harmony and elegance to it that isn't found in the painting. Have you thought about coloring the line drawing with subtle transparent tones?

    Awesome!

    @dpaint - Thanks A LOT! Like I mentioned before I'm still very much learning how to digitally paint/color so my color theory's kinda week. But this helped out a ton!

    @Zirngibism - I haven't really pursued any other form of coloring since this approach worked well considering I'm just kinda winging it. I'm looking forward to tightening it as a whole and re-presenting it. Would you happen to have an example of what you mean by transparent tones?
