So I just started reading One Piece. I know, I’m two thousand and late….
I’m at Chapter 227 right now, about 1/3 done. It’s pretty entertaining. There are quite a few parts that (actually) make me LOL and I love that. The comedy in this manga is totally my styles.
Came across a piece of line art while reading the chapters. I liked it and I started to color it for sh!ts n giggles. I’m occasionally doing it when I’m bored or watching something…
Just thought I’d put my progress so far…
(Note: There’s quite a bit of image degradation it)
Keep in mind that the purpose of flats is to create an aliased (note: NOT anti-aliased) method of separating colors. It makes it easier to select them for modification. (I actually have professional freelance experience making flats…for the Street Fighter comic :D sry – I did like, 3/100000000 pages and that’s honestly one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my life ;P so I like bringing it up…)
Edit: 4 hours later, 1:42AM
Adding Depth to the image! (not final colors)
It’s really coming along well! I’m so happy with the progress so far! I don’t wanna sleep, I wanna keep working on this!! Safe to say, I’ll probably be doing this all day tomorrow :)
Playing around with the layers
Probably post the PSD at some point if you’re curious :D
Having. SO MUCH FUN. Maybe I should do this art thing again, and soon :D
Edit: Monday 3:02PM (the next day) – 7 hours after last night
Final – No outline
Final V1 (I’m done – sure I could tweak more – but I don’t want to, I need to do something else for my sanity)
V1 PSD [26MB], if you’re curious :D
