The Dark's Embrace by transfuse The Dark's Embrace by transfuse
I was taking a look at 's coloring tutorial and was noticing that she pretty much colors the same way I do except that she sets her lineart to multiply, merges it with her background once she's changed the bg color, and then colors right over her lineart. It's an interesting method and I wanted to see what it'd be like to color over my lineart so I tried using a combination of her technique and mine.

What I basically did was I scanned my pencil art and seperated the lines the way I usually do it (as shown in my tutorial section), but I colored over the lineart (on a seperate layer-- I'm still not confident enough to just completely get rid of my lineart) instead of coloring under it. It was pretty fun and the results are nice so I'll probably be doing it more often.

Btw, you might want to adjust your monitor if it looks too dark (or bright). I did a few test printouts and it prints pretty much exactly how I see it on my monitor.

Oh yeah, shock! A guy. Heh, I do draw them on rare occasions. :3

Pencil: 1 hour
Photoshop CS2: 10 hours

[edit] I centered the image, made the sword a little more prominent and hopefully got rid of the fade problem at the bottom-- I can't tell if it's gone or not on my monitor 'cause I can't turn up the brightness anymore. =/ Thanks for all your input, kiddos. :)
