has to be one of my favorites from you.

I'd like to see some darker shading under certain parts, like under the chin, under hair, abs, knee... highlights look nice.
the sparks are very cartoony, so I guess it's ok as well :)

Wow Chapel, looks like you've taken Joachim's advice! Excellently done, your continuing improvement is inspiring. I could only suggest further detailing as a next step.

Nice job, Chapel! I really like the handling of the shiny areas like the wristbands and headband. The shadows being cast by her hair and arms adds a lot to the depth even if the actual shadow would probably be a little more diffuse. You're definitely getting better and better each time you do this stuff. About how long are these taking you now? I wonder how much time comic colorists have to spend on each page before they have to move on. Anyway, keep up the great work.

Well, Superbug, I just want to say that I wasn't really impressed with comics before people like Liquid! came along and spiced things up. Even then though I would sometimes think that coloring comics can't be too hard even though I had respect for what it takes to do it right. My respect grew when I recently gave a stab at coloring some of Mad!'s stuff myself. I found that it's a little harder coloring comics than it is doing my own paintings because when doing my paintings I'm doing my own thing, I know what's going on in the picture, where the light's coming from, what color I want this to be, etc.

Doing the comic though I found it a little slower because I had to sit and think about how the penciler originally intended the lighting to be, how the colors of the characters need to be as close to specification as possible, how to add even more to the pencil and inks already there...the stuff I learned goes on and on and that's just from doing two panels. On top of all this, these guys have to keep this same consistency all the way through the book...you can't have Batman changing colors every page or the texture of a surface change because you painted it a little differently. There's gotta be some continuity to the whole thing...something that doesn't come into play most times when you're looking at a single painting.

Not putting you down here, Superbug...you like it or you don't like it. I just felt I needed to express what I've learned myself having had views a bit like your own.

Thanks for the comments. I still have much to learn.

Flinthawk: this took about 3 hours including the time spent with Rinaldo nagging every detail.. hehe.

Superbug: Its ok.. I don't really like your style of art either. That is why I don't usually reply. To each their own.
