I loved coloring this little beauty. Just as =rheall
said -- the mane and tail were murder.
I was originally going to put one of my photos as a background, but I decided against it. As for the smudges ... I'm still deciding whether I like those or not. I'll probably erase 'em after my hand recovers.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out, and I especially like how the colors in the tail look -- I kept the mane dark for contrast. Colored with Photoshop 6.0, about 9 hours or so over the past nine days.
Note: if you're critiquing the color (my part) comments go on this page -- if you're critiquing the lineart (=rheall
) comments go on the original page ([link]
EDIT: Erased some of the smudges and resized it!
EDIT: Erased some more of the smudges and moved part of the text (I think it looks a little more balanced now.)
