This is the very first real collab I've ever done with the very talented and seductive
She was very gracious to take the time from her busy schedule and on going series 'Heartcore' to draw up this little piece for me to colour. Got to say I feel rather honoured to have collab with someone this well known, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy as though something you never thought could be possible happened. Perhaps it is because this really IS my first collab with someone whose work you've always respected, finally getting a change to join forces.
Anways, think I've pouted long enough there, as for the colouring its self I'm rather content with the final appearance. Wasn't too sure in the beginning to follow a style that mimicked her approach towards colouring of her characters, but then felt that there wouldn't be any similaries of our appointed areas. In the end, I opted for something that blend a little of cell shading with the airbrush and the final result has pleased me a great deal. Though I feel naturally feel that there might be a little more that could have been done the final result still leaves me feeling happy.
Of course, the background the one area that I would openly admit is the weakest of it all. I honestly had no ideas of what to do and what you see really is a compliment of just this and that.
In the end though, I think this turned out well. Learnt a few new things, got to work with another talented artist whose work I'd advise you to check out and overall just had fun.
Please let me know what ya'll think.
