I'd already uploaded this image but decided to re-tackle it after I talked with some friends and got some ideas - and this time I decided to pay attention to..you know..light direction, volume, etc. Silly unimportant things like that.
More seriously, I'm happier now and when I first tackled it I went into Cel-Shading frenzy, trying this and that without really paying attention to some basic things. Now I think I'm locking in a personal style for this type of coloring. It's still got some creative lighting going on, but hey, I'm an artist - so that's my prerogative (and I'm sticking by that excuse over it being 'a mistake!)
It's been a busy month or so. Lots of things happening that should be fruitful. More posts on this and that soon.
