Original Lines - [link]
By Jamie Faye - *windriderx23

Color - David Delanty - `vest


Come on. You think I'd pass up these lines? Ha!

I remember when doing a commission work for ~lyteside, he came up with a great suggestion of a soft back-lit scene. He provided me with references, and his pre-color input was invaluable to getting the perfect effect. It's amazing to me that after all that time, I haven't attempted that effect again. I've done "autumn reds" many times before, but a dusty backlit effect? Surprisingly, not once.

I owe it to ~lyteside to take his successful idea and implement it again.

This is also my happy Valentine's Day present to Jamie. Err...if two dudes are, uhh, allowed to do such a thing. Here's for all the great collabs we make together.

Photoshop CS2
Wacom Tablet
CGTextures

Comments appreciated. Criticism honored.

I do enjoy your soft light style it fits well with the environment. I like the touch of the fire embers =). Are you planning on doing the whole panaroma, that'd be awesome.

I never considered doing the whole thing, just because of the time limitations I'm under. It would take me many weeks to get the whole thing done, and I don't know if I have that kind of time.

But who knows. I'm well known to come out of left field and surprise people.

Yeah... so is he your official colorer on your X-Men series, or will you color yourself? (Selfishly wanting to know for my own needy-grabby Fave&Collection desires...)
