Here's the page that I was fighting with trying to color for a few nights. I'm happy how it turned out but I think I need to use less muted colors... Color choice is what was killing me.

I was so busy with it I forgot to tell Auggie not to tone this page in our usual greyscale. He did a good job on it so I posted it up before this page.

I won't even say how long it took. I really don't know. It was a bad week I think. Those who color their comics every week. I don't know how you do it.

Thank you. I tend to for no reason sometimes I guess.

Heh, and just as suddenly it'll be gone.

Oh my word I love this page so much OwO
The colors and the shading are super lovely~! I would love to see the rest of the comic like this. OwO
Low 26th Jan 2012, 2:05 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! I really wish I could do the rest in color but I don't think I can do it in a timely fashion. Not like this at least. It took too much time and trial and error and frustration just get it this way. But I'm glad you like.

Woooh, even better than I was expecting! (I expected it to be awesome, mind you.)

As for your color choices, I think you did a great job. Dusk tends to dull colors' intensities, so muting them a bit is actually the right thing to do. If they were brighter, it wouldn't be as convincing.

I also love-love all those counter light sources. Man. o3o I need to learn from you and up my game!

Great work!

Thanks so much! I actually been copying techniques from here and there. Your method was employed in this actually. I bookmarked that tutorial you did a while back which was very useful. Before that I was using black as shader for other comics more often than I should.

I havent developed a method yet so it's taking way too long to do unless I do a simple version of cell shading. I figured I'd go all out on this though.

Thanks man.

This is great! Why haven't I read this before?
Low 26th Jan 2012, 1:45 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! Probably due to it not being as eye catching in black and white. This was just my latest attempt at color which still takes too long to be practical for me.

Hey this is more than awesome!! Don't push yourself too hard!! You have really done a great job!! Incredibly well done Low! Love it so so much! <3

Just hope the sun won't be going too fast, or it will be too dark for them to fight :P
Low 26th Jan 2012, 2:10 PM edit delete reply
Yeah that might not be good for Low and Aug.

The treasure chest is magic! It was gone last page but is back again XD. In all seriousness though, great comic! It's really entertaining!
Low 26th Jan 2012, 11:27 PM edit delete reply
Thank you. And thanks for pointing out the missing treasure. I just fixed it. :)
davemation 26th Jan 2012, 11:34 PM edit delete reply
I think it looks great. The muted tones give it a dusk kind of feel that I always have a hard time with. Sometimes the work that is hard and tiring forces you to do your best, and besides artists never like their own stuff.
Low 26th Jan 2012, 11:38 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, that's true with me. I love everyone elses work but I can get frustrated on my own stuff. It is pretty silly.

Nice colors... From the comments above it looks like I'm saying what everybody else is saying though :I

With great colors comes great famousness? Dunno.
Low 27th Jan 2012, 5:56 PM edit delete reply
Heh thanks. It's the color all of a sudden surprise.

It has been a while sense I have been to this site. I was kind of wary about coming back because my last comments were slightly negative (but mostly positive), still some artist are real touchy about what is said to them. Apparently you did not take it in a negative way seeing how you were nice enough to evaluate my artwork. Based on all the other people’s comments I guess I really don’t need to tell you how good this pages looks but still I gotta say this page looks fantastic!!! This is what you would actually see in a comic book. It must take forever to make it look this good. Anyways, I suppose you are getting tired of everyone telling you how great you are so I will let you get back to doing what you do best.
Low 3rd Mar 2012, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
I'm still not comfortable coloring in one particular way so that's why it takes me so long. Thanks for the compliments I always appreciate them. I'm here for feedback mostly on the artwork so positive or negative is equally helpful.
