    Awesome work! It's easy to get thrown off by using the wrong values, but you transition from black and white to color really well.

    I agree with Marmona! I've always had trouble going from b/w to color...
    Have you got any tips for that Vasburg?

    Hey Tarada and Marmona,
    Thank you very much for your feedback, that's so awesome!

    You're surely aware of the different methods of adding colors from gradient-tools, overlay layers to colorbalance tools, which I would suggest to play with. It's always handy to master at least two, so you have a backup-plan up your sleeve.
    I actually have a really destructive way of adding color. I usually work quite organic and just paint with colors over the sketch and adjust the colors in the painting process. I wouldn't recommend that, since you're always in the danger of destroying the image, however, if you are pain free abound going all in, this is, at least for me, the favorite way.

    Two suggestions I can surely share are the two following:
    I like to add a colorless layer (black, white, grey) above all and set it to color. There are different methods and tools you can use to make a black and white image, which all aim to make it somehow pretty in the process. Whatsoever, setting the layer to color only disables the colors and doesn't enhance them. By turning it on and off you can easily check, if your values make sense overall.

    Second thing I always like to do is to play with complementary colors. The image with the sword and the flag has red all over it, which was erased to it's minimum. This makes the colors pop even more. Almost like an underpainting.

    I hope I could share a thing or two you didn't know yet (hell, your images look badass too!). If you enjoy watching boring art-streams I can recommend checking out my twitch channel.

    Thanks for the reply!
    As for the value check; I didn't know that! I usually just throw in a Black%White adjustment layer to check my values, I've heard of the Black w/Color mode method but haven't compared the two for any differences. I had a feeling there was some sort of difference.. or is there? Haha

    I'm also the kind of guy that goes straight into color! But whenever I attempt a b/w picture + Color layer (overlay, color, etc.) it just ends up looking muddy. Not sure why! I suppose I should keep going at it.

    Hey Tarada, you're always welcome!
    There is actually a significant difference. For example, if you hit Shift + Strg + Alt + B, Photoshop opens a menu, which can be used for converting data into black and white.
    However, imagine you're converting a rainbow, which has different colors, maybe varying saturation but the same brightness. This menu will suggest you the attempt to manipulate the converting in a way, that you can tell that there were different colors, although the rainbow should become one value, if not invisible.
    This is pretty neat for photos (Had an air-balloon with a rainbow pattern once. Instead of getting one "grey" I was able to vary the result a bit), however, if you're trying to check for your values, this is often counterproductive.

    I use the overlay method only, if I can't figure out a different way. It tends, at least for me, to unify areas into one color as I get lazy in varying color after that. What always helped me a lot was the understanding of how a color-circle works and the good ole Johannes Itten (http://www.worqx.com/color/itten.htm)

    Looking forward to see more of your works!
