    Normally I stick to pencil and paper, but I'm designing characters for a webcomic so I figure I need to get some practice in digital colouring. So I coloured a Naruto manga page.

    First page of Naruto chapter 220, 'Brothers'. Yes, it's Itachi:


    Criticisms are more than welcomed, as I'm planning to do a few more of these before I even attempt colouring my original characters. Cheers :amuse

    Nice coloring, but shouldn't you be worried more about drawing skills than coloring skills? ._.;

    As for a suggestion, the under eye marks are unevenly shaded.

    Not really. I'm decent at lineart; colouring is my weakpoint, hence the practice smile-big

    You think the shading's uneven? Damn... I was going for the effect of light coming from the left hand side. Thanks for the tip.

    That's actually quite nice for your first time. The colors are a little bland for me though, I'd like it more if it were soft. :3
    All-in-all, good job. 8D

    I think it would look good if there's some shade under Itachi's eyes, and I don't like the BG colors you used... it looks "fluffy". =/ Did you use a soft rounded brush to color it?



    EDIT.
    BTW, wrong section. :sag

    Woah, I like how the clouds are red to reflect the design of the Akatsuki cloaks, but I'm not sure how I feel about it being such an overwhelming vividness, it kind of draws attention away from Itachi. I think his hair could use a little more contrast to show where the light would shine on it, but that's just my preference, I like stronger highlights.

    Funny you should say that; I originally coloured it with stronger shading/highlights, and my mate told me it'd look better if it was more subtle :laugh typical, eh?

    Yeah, you're probably right about the clouds taking the focus off Itachi. They are a bit overbearing...
