    One thing I want to point out is that. Your line is so fine that it would be heartbreak to paint over it totally. But that is your decision.

    That's a really good one fron Daryl Mandryk. Here is his site, I am sure you know already.

    And here is his tutorial on CG talk:

    But here are some link to any painting tutorial you might find helpful.

    And there are lots of tutorial out there on the net: I espcially love Sparth, Baronteri, and Vyle. You can find their site on CA.

    have fun and keep up the good work!

    Holy crap, your line drawing is amazing! I agree with Xia... if I were you, I'd color it while leaving the line in. (even though I know that's not the style you're going for...) I'm not much of a painter myself, so I'm afraid I can't give too much advice in that area.

    you could try what I am doing, not sure how much it will help you with humans but it helped me grasp onto layering colors.

    I am completely ignorant to color myself so I know how frustrated you must be.

    Ideas: I hate all characters are seperated into good and bad, even Medusa, to me she can be a very innocent girl who just wants to survive sorry don't really know the story of her a lot, so I plan to make a picture which Medusa is trying to protect a warrior who just stabbed her with a sword from other monsters, becasue she remember that warrior is her sister before she is cursed and turned into Medusa, maybe I am crazy haha but please this my imagination

    I will start wit hdraft and a bit clean up and then color, okay that is the draft, critiques please again!!!!!!
    No color advice here, but I love this draft. Good job.

    I am not totally sure on how to do that example you showed, but I did a quick 3 step thing on how I assume it may be done;

    1) the "wash". basic color choices, underneath lines

    2) Begin to fill out the wash under the lines

    3) paint over the lines and general detailing.


    I know www.dandossantos.com has an Oil Painting tutorial on his website. (His name here is DSIllustration)

    Your linework is beautiful - this piece left me gaping.

    Sorry I'm unable to offer any proper advice or critique to you. I'm at 2-year old child's level compared to you! Keep experimenting with the colours, they can be hard to nail sometimes

    I can't wait to see how this turns out, good luck!

    Right now the biggest problem is the lack of light source; make sure you have very Defined points where the light comes from- then you can know pretty much how to paint it without guessing.

    By the way, I am nothing. Your lines have the best "rythm" I have EVER seen. Your lines are among the best on this site, they are poetic.

    EDIT: Perhaps you should redraw the lines of that picture and try to color it the same way?

    I like your lines and gestures.


    As for color, you need to take care of your contrast opportunities. For example, on the drawing You have a little U or drop shape on his chest formed by the hair. On the color one, it was lost. You can achieve contrast and the sort of crispness you get from lineart by building up gradients and killing them quickly. BAM, you have an edge (which will attract attention so only do it on places that are worth it.).

    Hun, you're so far from shit it isn't even funny. I wish I could create lines with such motion and beauty. And your coloring isn't exactly crap either....despite the newness of it and it showing that you're not used to it.

    I've learned so much form these guys without even asking...there are TONS of little nugget of wisdom on this site...you've come to the BEST place. I mean...look at what Justin and Prom alone have given you...^_^ it's the tip of the iceberg!

    I'm hoping you will eventually post the Medusa piece...it's truly beautiful and it's an original take on an old idea.

    I can understand where you're sitting...I'm in transition myself and I know it's hard...the joy of art is that no matter how good you are, there's always something new to learn and something around the corner waiting to be explored...

    Be well and happy holidays...thank you for sharing your beautiful work.

    hey man thanks for posting in my sb, very helpful.

    this girls are really awsome, the anatomy and the volume are nice.

    for coloring i made the experience that the lines give the contrast if you coloring under your outlines.
    so, if you want to do this without outlines you have to achive it with contrast . prom showed you already how to do this so try it out on new paintings and i am sure you will master it quickly!

    btw... take more care of your backgrounds, i've seen work from you were you drew the bg after you finished the character.

    i really think you gonna do this very well!

    There are quite a few appraoches to this. One method is a series of tints that gradually turn into stronger, solid touches as you gain a 'colour form concept' of the image. I have posted below 3 early steps to give you an idea of what I mean. It really needs another 3 or 4 more steps but allas time robs me of going any further at the moment. I hope this helps. Your drawing is very strong.

    I really like your lineart, it is, as spats put it, very poetic. I too am struggling with coloring, but i know that color is only as good as the values that you have going. So pay attention to your light source, make it clear what direction the light is coming from, and get your values in first, then you will see where to add colors.

    Also, ive heard that the further away from the light source the cooler the shading. Not sure if that rule always applies, just something that i have heard artists talking about.

    Just my humble opinion, keep going, do a grayscale version to get the values going, then try doing like 10 different color renditions, that will give you the experience of playing with color, which is a start.

    Ive also been told to start out with a monochromatic color scheme, or use a simple analogous color scheme to learn with.

    Keep going man!
