I'm not giving up on this coloring thing yet, so here's another attempt. Again, it's done over Matthew Clark. I'm sticking to simple one off figures and ambiguous backgrounds for the moment while I try to figure out a bit of the technique and software. Contrast continues to elude me while painting, but I dropped it into PhotoShop and messed with the levels a bit to try to make it pop more than my other attempts. Any advice is appreciated.

I might just have you ink and color Tiger Wraith.
Get more comfortable with it and I think that's what will happen.

You know were to find me Steve. :cool: I'm still finding my way with this coloring thing, but I wouldn't rule out starting to take on jobs soon. It's actually one of the other reasons I'm starting to color. I've had to turn down work from people who got my name from some of my industry contacts asking if I could ink and color their projects. I don't like turning down work for lack of skill in an area. :man:

Personally I find painting one hell of a challenge. Even after my worthless 4 years of art classes in college, it still is hard. And when you try to convert from brush and paint to digital... ugh. You have new challenges to work on. Like you stated, learning and working the software.
I can't say much on your overall piece here, I like what I see. It's a style I've not really ever seen. I've seen other styles that come close, but not quite to what you're doing. Overall, isn't that what you're after anyways?
What was told to me with my paintings, digital atleast, I'm too scared to face the contrast beast and play in the harsh tones of darks and lights. I personally, work in photography rules. Which I have a hard time breaking from when it comes to comic illustrations. Lighting is different between the two to extents.
I'd say, play with the contrasts even more, play around with your color value in PS and see if there's anything in levels or curves even, that you may find to be even more intriguing to contribute to your pieces. Afterall, from what I see here, I don't know why you thought about quitting... ever. So, as cliche` as it is, play with the contrasts more and see what happens.
But whatever you do, keep seeing what happens!

Siafu, I appreciate the time and effort you put into your comments. They were very helpful. Thanks!

Good work liked colors think only the fire should be in a stronger tone and saturated should be contemplating also in the character's body. But it is alone my opinion.
You already looked here;
But the work is using Photo Shop.

Thanks Miguel. Yes, Marko is frickin' amazing. I didn't have that link to so much of his work though. Thanks for posting it.
