This is my second coloring of my friends art work. I'm starting to get the hang of this. The hardest part is getting a soft glow feel with color. Most times it just starts looking washed out.

i'm always open to sugestions and advice from those who care to lend an oppinion.

Here is my friends page

    • May 3, 2006
      I was worried about getting the Armor to look polished. Another of my friend Den's works of art.

    Nice work on this piece. I like how you made the forground foliage (at the bottom) darker. It adds to the depth. The gold looks nice.

    By the way, you can add multiple artists on artwork. To do so, just go to "My Artwork" and then click [edit artists] next to the thumbnail for this artwork and you can add Dennis to the artwork.

    You did an especially good job on the armor and the stone. If I were your friend who did the linework, I'd be especially pleased! Well done, man!
  • May 3, 2006
    The armour design and colouring is amazing. The shine looks great. Well done.
    Something looks plain about her face tho.
    But even that is fine. Honest. Laughing
    • May 4, 2006
      Well I did some Plastic surgery on her face. Adjusted the eye position and a slight nose job. Remember I don't have my surgen's licence yet so...
      • May 4, 2006
        You did a great job Lando but is it me or does she now look like my sister?! HEY!!
    • May 4, 2006
      I'm sure Orlando will join me in saying thank you for the comments, but all blame for the plain face goes to me i'm afraid. After rendering the armor and the background I just rushed through the face half-heartedly.
      • May 5, 2006
        Laughing Don't worri Dennis! I do that all the time! Makes me sad after tho. Mah lastest picture my brother attacked me with crayons to make sure I did everything properly. Annoyed It's still beautiful. Bounce
  • May 4, 2006
    Very nice! Bounce I love the armor, it came out wonderful! As did the rest of the pic, of course. Giggle Thumbs Up
    • May 4, 2006
      Thanks for the props on the outfit. Coloring props all go to Orlando.
      • May 5, 2006
        Then props to Orlando on the coloring. Giggle

    *grin* Yes, those ladles come in very handy, I hear. Beautiful colouring job. You do Lloyd's beautiful work justice. Smile
    • May 5, 2006
      Wait you lost me. What Ladies. Where are they. Yes, Ladies are very handy. Thanks. More colored versions of his art to come.God, he's luck I have allot of free time. by the way nice picture.
      • May 5, 2006
        No, no. Not 'LADIES', 'LADLES". One's a kitchen utensil, and the other is commonly termed as 'the fairer sex'.... Though why they're known as that, I don't know. In my experience, men are far more fair in their deals. (*grin* I joke.)

        Nice picture? Which picture?

        Someday I hope I have the free time to colour some of Dennis's work... So far I have not yet had the fortune of opportunity.

        Sweet dreams, and good luck!
        • May 5, 2006
          Your picture(avatar)
          • May 5, 2006
            OH! Laughing Thanks very much.
            • May 6, 2006
              Hey, Den finally told me what the whole Ladle thing comes from I was still lost even after you told me.
              • May 7, 2006
                Laughing Yeah, sorry. I though since it was a collab, the comment would have gone to both of you...
                • May 7, 2006
                  It did go to me. Oops! I guess I should of replied sooner but when I saw Orlando reply I thought there was no need.

                  My bad. Anyways I never shared the secret of the armor to Lando and I guess I should of.
                  • May 7, 2006
                    I always thought he had a secret suit of armor in his closet. I know he has something in his closetROFL
                    • May 8, 2006
                      Swords, Lando. I have swords in my closet as well as axe and a lance. I also forgot, I got a BB-gun now too.
  • May 10, 2006

  • May 14, 2006
    It looks kind of flat to me, like something id see ina book for fairytales. It could be what you were going for though

    Wow you did an awsome job on coloring this. I like all the shiny details. Big Smile
  • May 23, 2006
    I really like this image, you did a very good job on details and color. nice work.
    • May 23, 2006
      Thanks! I'll take the credit for the details but the colors are completely WILDKARDE's.
    • Jun 2, 2006
      Wow, very nice the coloring is cool to.
      • Jun 2, 2006
        Thanks, the coloring was done by my friend, Orlando.
      • Jun 3, 2006
        Thanks, I like your name by the way
  • Jan 3, 2007
    wow... i definitely love the colors and way the overall effect works...

    the face is a bit awkward, but i think it still makes this picture even better...

    i have the worst time coloring, so most of my images remain b&w...

    • Jan 4, 2007
      Thanks. Now that I got a better handle coloring I think i could do better. Its just an awful lott of pratice and looking up at refrence books.
  • Jun 22, 2009
    Very, very nice- I do have a suggestion, though, which is to keep your colour palette limited, to sort of unify it- right now the colours are very distracting, and it detracts from the awesome job you and your friend did ;__;
    • Oct 9, 2009
      Thanks for the critique. I"ll pass it along to the colorist. I would of liked to have colored it myself but unfortunately my eye for color is limited.
