Another page wherein I lament not being able to draw faster. The colouring was less than two hours, the lineart took like a whole day. Bahhh.
Still, I think I’m hitting a good style for the lineart that compliments the colouring, or at least makes it easier. I always liked the fineline inked look with cel-shading, but couldn’t be bothered inking that carefully. What I’m doing right now is inking somewhat sloppy fine lines on top of a greyscale sketch, and keeping it all in the final piece, so I get some extra shading in there to boot.
I think I’m not making any sense, so have a slapdash step by step sort of thing.
If I were smart this would have been a vote incentive, but I cannae be bothered right now. It basically goes 1) Lineart/greyscale tones, 2) flat colours, rubbish background, 3) tint highlights blue, shadows red, 4) add some hard blue light, 5) gradient with some shadows cut out, then 6) final colour adjustment, texture.
