    Hiya!

    UPDATEUPDATEUPDATEUPDATE:

    Instead of posting here, go to here's
    Sign up there and post in the recruit thread, it's easier for us to gather people there than going all around different forums and stuff.



    I made a post like this a long time ago, but it was moved to the ad-forum, where no one read it, but now I have KnK's permission. Anyway:

    I don't know how many who've heard of Zarosaki, but we fully color the Naruto-manga chapters from 245 and on. So far we've done 7 chapters, and are now doing 252-261, and after that we'll continue even further.

    So, I know there are many awesome and talented people here, so I'm offering you the chance to get your work viewed by thousands of other people (We're currently hosted on Narutocentral and Tazmo said he'll put us up on NF, + some other sites) and participate in a well organized project with lots of great people.

    If you want to join in, give me a PM with a coloring you've done, reply here, or grab me/Exa on #zarosaki @ irc.rizon.net. You can color pages in any style you want to, and you do no more than what you have time for. We don't care if you're totally new to coloring or is an experienced artist, we'd love to have you onboard anyway, as long as you know how to shade (black parts in the pics too), it's allright.

    We also have a tutorial in case you want to learn coloring:



    Remember folks, #zarosaki @ irc.rizon.net! :wink

    You really should help these guys out!!! It's insane to let 3 people colour 60+ pages
    I thought it was incredible that you guys coloured so many pages already. Poor guys :sad
    (and yes I am helping too now, a little though)

    Don't worry about the time being a real problem here.. Let's say you can use about a month to color one pic at the moment..

    Shouldn't be too hard.

    I'm interested in joining! =)

    Hey Exa, I might be able to color one page per month. Haha sorry, I have school and usually lots of homework to do. You know how it is. Hehe.

    Hmm... hey Stiluz! I thought you had a whole bunch of members like AzzzRAEL and Reaver Reload. I wonder what happened to them. :huh Well, I'm interested but I might only have time for one or two pages a month. Is that okay? Here are samples of my work, though I haven't done this for a few weeks. Haha.

    This Style
    This Style

    You could scout around for the rest of them here:

    Well... anyways, tell me what you guys think. I hope it's alright. Anyways, see you guys later! :cool:.

    Yes, we'd love for you to join us VietSnake3. Pop into On to the next set! >>> and tell us what page you wanna do. Use the palettes. This goes for all that's been accepted.

    As for Reaver and Azzy...Reaver's still with us, he pop's in every weekend with new page(s). Azzy pop's into the channel sometimes, but haven't seen her lately. We have a lot of members, but very few are actually active, so it's mostly me and Exa who's active at the moment...

    Sure you can join.. Now, or later..

    Though, one test page with our style/palettes etc. would be nice to see first.

    This

    Get there and take the palettes and try them on some random page. Color that and PM it to me or Stiluz. If you can't see the thread, tell me and I'll PM everything you need to know, ok?

    Answer: Sure there's GIMP (and maybe Paint Shop Pro). Never tried it though so no idea what it's like..

    I'm glad that people still love my tutorial :)
    But yeah, anyone who wants to colour is more than welcome to. We do still have to maintain quality control however, so samples of work is a big help in us saying "Yes!" to your membership in Zarosaki. We all love Naruto and colouring and this project helps us fine tune and keep our photoshop skills updated. And don't worry if you aren't the best colourer in the world, a few practises with us and you'll be pro in no time. We're nearing the end of our big project (the aforementioned 252-261 chapters) and we'll be starting our new project soon after.

    We'd love to have you people on board. Like Stiluz said, if you haven't put colour to canvas before, then just load up my tutorial and have a stab at it. If you like it, then feel free to try out.

    If only for a test page, sure, but for submitting pages, basecolors should match the palette.

    You don't have to be so sarcastic
    the poor guy merely asked an innocent question.
    'waterrunsfast', if you can contact me in either (MSN Messenger)rikufanboy@gmail.com or (ICQ)310929773, I'll explain everything
    and I have another question:
    can I choose any page, nothing specific?
