    Color Critique

    I've been aware for a long time that I cannot color to save my life- largely because I seem to have a fixation on illustrating entirely in black and white, which came about mostly because I couldn't color to save my life. Rather cyclical. Recently though, in-between taking lecture notes off of PowerPoint slides, I've been drawing in that newfangled windows7 MSPaint, and attempting to practice my coloring.


    I guess what I'm trying to ask is: What can I do to improve? Aside from the obvious practice more (my hand has recently begun to hurt almost constantly, but it may or may not be related.)

    pictures linked in chronological order over the past 3 days or so, to avoid wasting space:
    First
    Second
    Third
    Fourth
    Rule 63'd

    The attached was done just today in about an hour.

    I think you've got an interesting style going on here, and while this works pretty well in an artistic sense, if you want to learn how to color properly you're going to have to practice defining values from reference and then taking that into color. By the way, it's about time MS Paint makes the technological leap.
