high leBeau,get low Logan by dr-conz high leBeau,get low Logan by dr-conz
uuuh, need some coloring tips on this.I want to really finish it off with awsome flavourness, but Im not very good lighting mood and all that jazz.Im trying to do some sequentials with these too.Cause my juggy-naut sequentials werent really good from last year Comic-con, so ima step it up. Taking it back to the 90's.
So whoever wants to color it, or has any ideas for me, please let me know.Need to motivate myself.

Im happy with how it came out, i have bunch of studies i did of these two, im working on putting more character in my gambits face, but its finally coming along.I might put the sequentials up we'll have to see.:) thanx for looking.

This gotta be short yo, cause I don't have alotta time. I think for the draw aspects, you nailed Logan top notch no doubts. Remy on the other hand has some issues. It seemed like you considered alot of foreshortening distortions with Logan, but loffed a lil on Rems. Maybe just a quick redraw of his head would do it. Make it a bit smaller to get that same foreshortened fell you got with logan. Also, no need to have a straight on view. Draw the head smaller to sink it back into space, and I'd prefer it turned to the left side of the pic, like a 3 quarters view so you can see more jaw and neck info. Would bring more emotive and energy to the pic. Logan, just make his eyes more clear, it seems like there are no pupils or his eyes are closed. Make it look like they are just open just slightly, one line half way through what you have will do it. ...and pupils of sorts.

As for coloring... Make it dark and dramatic with heavy cast shadows and hot highlights. I'd recommend a dark dark blue and violet sky, and as is gets loser to the clouds and moon, and a tad bit O pinks oranges and the pale naples yellow esque moon. Since Gambit is standing basically in front of the moon, think about how the light would be mainly hitting his back and just slightly peaking over his* left shoulder. With most of his front (body) in shadow with subtle metallic highlights on his armor/suit. Also since he is standing blocking moon beams, maybe have a nifty linear outline (yellow perhaps) around the silhouette of his body where the light would actually be hitting those points of his form/silluette.

Logan... His jacket, think leather, think shine, but think cast light from that hot moon as well. Only where that light would hit and reflect nuance on that jacket. Shine* The haze ';poof' of his foot hitting the ground, make it airy and smokey, key* Hair, same deal as the jacket. Shine, but only in the right* parts. Now Logans face should be the fun part. Basically since the moon is the light source, thing of double reflection of cast light on the curb his face is grounding towards. Think how that light will bounce off the curb or whatever and bounce to his face. It will be more of a subtle cast light in comparison to the direct cast from the mood, so maybe make the highlights in colors of his skin tone, but with cooler* highlights, not HOT. ...oh and don't for get the twinkle of his claw(s) HA!

Sky and ground, you know what to do, consider light source and cast shadows from the figures. ...and render the moon well* ey.


Now, as said, this drawing kicks ass and deserves your time to make it the hottesT shit down town. So please, put that final energy into it, this'll be worth it for your portfolio my man. ...I took the time to analyze no? HA:evileye::peace:

...anyway brothah, hope this stirred up some thought and inspires you to KICK THIS SHIZ OUT dah field:shakefist:
