Hi guys. I’m new. Not just to the CGTalk forum, but to this whole concept of moving sketches forward into finished paintings (as opposed to leaving them half-finished and crying in a corner somewhere). I’m not completely clueless, but I am completely terrified!
Anyway, I’ve just finished with some lineart that I’m rather fond of. It definitely has some issues, though. Like, I can see that the zombies at her feet and the rocks and some parts of her anatomy are not right, but I’m not sure how to make them right. Please point it out to me if I’m missing anything besides those things or if you can tell me how to fix them, because I’m stumped.
The main thing, though, is that I’m hesitating on how to move forward. I know that I want to keep my lineart intact, so I don’t want it to be 100% painterly, but I also don’t think I want to go flat colour or cell shading either. Does anyone have any thoughts, opinions, examples, etc? Do you think I should just forego colour, clean up what I have, fill in some black tones where necessary and leave it as comic-esque lineart? I would appreciate any guidence you folks have to offer.
