Ok Jonathan back with a color update on his Ninja turtles drawn by Joe MAD. Thanks for the harsh critiques last time. It was most helpful and he is getting better. Here is the new version what do you guys think.
The lighting is inconsistent; it looks like it's coming from the right on Leonardo and Raphael, the left on Donatello, and the front on Michelangelo. And I mentioned this to someone else before, your highlights are way too big, you can see the more detailed explination here.

Message from jonathan.> "I wanted to give it multiple lighting and what iw as trying to show is the light coming from the top of Leonardo which is how i think i have it. then the light streams down onto Donatello but because he is so far to the right of the screen it casts on the left side of him.
what doesn anyone else think about the the different lighting inconsistency.
thanks for your Crit cycrus. hit me back "
Whoever did this should look at the UDON colorists. Compare your work to there's and ask yourself honestly, "is my work holding a candle to this?"
Then, after the uppercut to the ego, regroup, try and figure out "why" it isn't holding up and fix it.
Study from the best and learn from the best. Good luck!
Yes study from UDON, or better yet LIQUID, the color piece looks way too muddy. Cause the image is in a comic book style so most people would love to see that, I've seen the original one with colors. Most of your colored pieces looks like they are ink blots sort of say, and it doesn't really convey well with the lines of the drawings. Study the people who you want to color like and then experiment to find a way on how he created a certain color, or effect. Here's a google search to get some tutorials - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...oring+tutorial Keep at it your hard work will sure pay off.

Thank you for the critques. Although i do not think the "holding a candle"comment was necessary. I would like to ask Sok N. Wet to elaborate on which parts seemed muddy to you. Thank you
You know, I think this is exactly how the turtles should be portraid as. I mean imagine... you're a turtle, has a rat for a father, you have to train every day wether you want to or not. Everybody's freaked out about you, you're brothers are the only people that look like you. Can't have sex with any girl....
Sorry got carried away, but nice work
not trying to dis. This is the method I use to evaluate my "own" work. I take major dosages of uppercuts to the ego daily. Still I rise. Just sprinkling the knowledge...try it and grow.
