The thing is done! and posted to Tegaki!
but I figured I'd put it here too so I could mutter about it more effectively.( loverly all-colored art under cut )
Coloring finished up way earlier than I expected and I'm pretty satisfied with the results, so maybe this is a good method to settle on for Tegaki, as opposed to skittering around doing stuff that is way too time-consuming XD
to be good for me.
You may notice I sneakily
did desperate fix on barf skin tones
seized opportunity for the guy on the right by coating him in purple! He is some kind of fire imp I guess. This is the first time I have colored someone whose lips are lighter than their base skin tone. *checks off list* After teal
and purple, the next unrealistic color I want to use in skin tones is royal blue!
So, parts I like: overall coloring, expressions, this mix of colors, non-anime noses. Shading could be better, but I like the shadows under the right-hand guy's chin. And he's a pretty good attempt at an up-the-nostrils shot from this angle.
Weak parts: naked with no reason, wth are those chairs, what are their hands doing and why are they out of frame, basically, lack of premeditated composition. (Why would a fire imp and a tribal chieftain be doing high-school detention naked? We need backstory
here, backstory!) Right-hand guy's facial anatomy improved a heck lot from sketch but is still not quite right for this angle. And I need to study shiny highlights on hair.
I have pretty much just been talking to myself here, but if anyone wants to critique any bits of art I post, it's welcome.
