Badly coloured.... Better by spidermanfan2099 Badly coloured.... Better by spidermanfan2099
Hmmmmm....

I'm undecided on this!

Lineart done by the exquisitely talented David Williams/Brohawk, great work, really loose and flowing and really leads you in. Check his gallery... ([link]), and heres the original... ([link])

Colours and random arm thrashing by myself, 2099.

This was just an experiment, I hadn't worked on Brohawks lines before (does it show!) and really wanted to stay loose and 'get outside the box' as everyone keeps saying.

I'm okay with Bats and Cats, but I hate Huntress, maybe that shows... aaargh, its sooo damn hard loosening up with your work you know?

It was all about only allowing myself 2 steps back at all times... if it looked odd, or unclean I was all like 'leave it, leave it, see what happens in 20 mins'

1 texture used and only 3 colours for a pallette (apart from some muted flats).

I'm off to drown myself in the kitchen sink (I am quite a short, it should be perfect)

Rad!

Edit- Took in what Wade said (see comments) and tried to pull Huntress out a little more, and tweaked a few bits! I think it looks a little better, I dont think I can take it any further, I am getting the itch to move on now.

I think it looks okay. I certainly like the look of Batman. But how he's bending at his abs just doesn't look natural. Maybe if you positioned him falling from the sky with his upper torso positioned how it is already, it'll look 10 times better. I also think the sky should be a different color. Maybe something darker like blue or purple. Just in my opinion ;D

The Lineart is not mine, its Brohawks! I'm just a colourist, and the challenge for me was using a limited palette! I like the sky myself, I tried a few different colours and liked this the most in the end. Blue didn't seem to have that violent Gotham feel to it for me. Thanks for the input though :)

Thanks dude, i haven't seen any other entries yet, fingers crossed for me eh! The blue/green is a lowlight, like an ambience from Gotham city. It jus helps to give it a little more pop.

you did the usual good on the coloring - yet, I had some issues making out who is who on first look
maybe it wouldn't have hurt to use different colors on the different characters;
sine huntress in in the middle of the trio, maybe it would have been sufficient to give her a different tone (like blue or so) to make it easier to make out where batman ends, huntress starts/ends and where catwoman and the pillar start XD

I did use the og colours for the flats and then dulled them. In the flats and base colours you can see the differences fine, it was only after I added the 3 lights ources that it kinda lost itself. The yellowed city light coming from the bottom right was the killer for sure. I have played with it, but as its flatted I cant do alot more, except redo stuff... I dont redo stuff ;) Next Brohawk colours will be the one, cheers for the input dude.

sure thing - I don't think many people will actually redo stuff "just" because they received critique on it;
I think critique is mainly for "keeping it in mind for next time" sort of thing, but it's always good to know to be of some use :XD:

Still bleeding in there a bit. Dunno man, I think the color and hues along with the light contrast of the huntress and Cats along with the stand Cats is on is still bleeding together a bit. I think the only way your going to spike her out is if you heighten Huntresses color and make sure the contrast of lighting on that stand Cats is on differs from Huntress. Shouldn't take much, but squint at it and punch those suckers apart.

Its a difficult one as I flatted the images base colours (never save experiments in full layered psd), if I push the colours on Huntress, they'll become more vibrant than Bats in areas. I'll take on another of Brohawks in the coming weeks and try again with this feel... I honestly blame Huntress for just being my least fave character ever. If i get a spare few minutes though I will get the colours right, this is a little better, I should have put up a comparison side by side. :)
