I have checked out the original and I must say you have done a great job of the colouring. The choice of colours and shades complements the scene/art style very well. For example, the way you have gone with the blue tint on Bats really complements the vibrancy of colours on the JOker. All works together very well.
Thank you! I grew up with Bats in the blue/gray and will always be more partial to it over the black outfit of today. I was in high school when the first Tim Burton Batman movie came out and introduced the black suit. I get that it captures better on film but it doesn't LOOK as intense as the blue/gray. And I ALWAYS have fun doing color work on Mr. J!
Danny the coloring is perfect. Pencil art is amazing both of you have done a great job. Regarding painting digitally with a mouse not good ,have the same problem myself ,I have found it helps if you switch between programmes I use Smoothdraw 3 or NX versions ( when doing Digital work ) all have layers like Photoshop and some great tools Airbrush for one my fav) both free ones combined with Photoshop 5 basic version. Seems to be working for me it has been a long learning curve mastering them all (practice till it hurts, hand aches sore eyes from staring at the computer screen, etc etc till one day it suddenly clicks in your brain " So that's how it is done"
Have tried a tablet my sons even that has its own set of difficulties like eye to hand coordination to computer screen issues if you play video games and use controllers that problem doesn't exist for you but I don't play video games so for me that's the problem I have.
I appreciate the comments and the info! I will defiantly take a look at the Smoothdraw 3. I do play video games [X-Box360] but I don't own a tablet.So far I have just been using Paint.NET software and a mouse for any digital touch-up work, adding backgrounds, and adding my skull tag.
I would love to but I can't afford a tablet at this time. I have tried just using my mouse and the basic paint programs on my computer or some of the free ones on the internet but the results are not very good. So I do 99% of the work by hand and only use the computer to correct an error that I can't by hand with out redoing the whole piece. That and to add my skull tag and other artists tags!
By the way Danny,the drawing by hand is more difficult and the most sophisticated & expensive .. but as long as you have the talent of painting by hand, then there is no problem to paint digitally .. while most of the comics magazines in America using digital & does not give any drawing by hand. You do not do like them in this media ..
I use regular printing paper to print out the B&W pics then I use markers or color pencils for the color work. Then I scan it back in to add my skull tag and correct any flubs that I couldn't fix by hand using Paint.NET software.
