pencils by Stanley Artgerm Lau of course

Back in 2014 Artgerm made this picture available for all and sundry to have a crack at. (The lineart is still here on his DA gallery if you want it) So I dived straight onto it, got it done as quick as I could so I could be one of the first to show it off... and completely narfed it up....

So I went back and tried revisions, changed things here and there, adjusted values and tints, reworked over the top of existing shading, and all I did was make things look worse. I completely stuffed up her skintones, narfed up the hair and the background sucked...

So having had some time this past 2 weeks being on term break from teaching and all, I decided to give it another go. I ditched everything except the red bikini, which is about all I did get right, and started over... and took my time. Even so I think I've still stuffed up the hair, but what the hey...

cheers
Sean

I'm no expert at coloring by any means but I think this looks GREAT! I always get inspired looking at your colors! Look forward to seeing more!
