This last chapter has some pretty good pages to color and/or redraw.

I went through 20+ chapters so far nothing too "must color", i know they are there though.

 

 

Also i finished that Morgiana skech, now i think i can do the final lines and color!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The rendering looks blurry and everything is kind of plastic-y.
The blurriness is because of the lack of contrast, don't clip the lineart to the same color as the object, make it a bit darker. (and not only in saturation, but also brightness)

The fabric of the clothing just looks like plastic now, study up on clothing.

Next to the coloring the legs are a bit too big and the pose is very undynamic and lacks rhythm. Even for a simple character design display the pose is a bit on the boring side. Study up on pose dynamic and rhythm. Using contrapposto is good way to understand it.

In short: reference more from real life. You are nearing a level where everything is beginning to look OK, but are severely lacking in image library and fundamentals. Go study up on your weaknesses, you can do it.

I never intended it to be an 'art' drawing, it was made as a Morgiana proportion guide (i just removed the guides and posted it), so it was kinda intended to be a flat boring pose  :lol: .  But you are correct on most things.

 

When it comes to the legs I didn't find the legs to be too big (wide/thick? :shrug: ). I did find out that she is six heads tall!!!

 

Images i used as reference.

I do need to work on my cloth colorings, i have really only done cell colorings of clothes for a long time and am trying to change over to a more smooth style. I have been working so much on anatomy i just never give my self time to study cloth though. :(

 

I will try your suggestions though!!

Tom needs to color Bankai Rukia.

 

Actually Tom needs to pick a page from that fight and color it.

 

 

What do you think about the dragon page from the last chapter of Beelzebub? Still not worth drawing/coloring?

I thought the same thing, however mine would be one of hundreds and not the best of the bunch. :shrug:

 

Thats why i like drawing/coloring things no one else spends the time to do, need to spread the love around not just color the BIG 3 and thats it.

 

Well i have the dragon page saved to my Pc, however i am working on a Witch Hunter coloring one atm (line art and all base colors done).

Well I'm not art major, but those poses look well done in proportion and perspective. But that's just a layman's opinion. :)

lookin' very good.

 

Carry on doing such practice.

Also, for coloring techniques and styles, you should check out pixiv. It's the Japanese "deviantart". It has a '.com' portal so don't worry about not being able to read japanese. Dem Japanese know what anime and manga should look like, so copy their styles.
