So... I finished coloring the pinup I did for my friend Bob. Original: [link]

You have been heard. I'll try to get prints up in my Etsy shop soon. :D

This artwork reminds me of the show that PBS used to have Called Liberties Kids.

That was a good show.  I was never much for watching TV, but I definitely enjoyed seeing Liberty's Kids.

I tried to watch it after enough of my readers mentioned it to me, but I think I'm just too old. Probably if I had been younger when it came out. I think I was in college back then. ;)

What do you mean by too old? Too old to enjoy the show? Too old to be watching a show that was on PBS? Too old to find the show? I think the show came out around 2003 to 2004

To old to enjoy it. 2003 & 4? Yeah... I was married by then, lol. I definitely wasn't the target audience.

Well, I didn't know about it when it came out. But after I started The Dreamer and people told me about it enough times, I checked it out. But I couldn't get into it.

And I always love how you do hair!

I can't really tell which version I like better. The shading is fantastic on the black and white, but the colors are awesome here as well! I LOVE how the colors are so vibrant towards the top of the piece and turn more muted as your eyes travel down the page.

You're very welcome... oh yeah, also: the fact you kept the pencil lines is also pretty excellent. Pencil lines are the best.

Hahah, ME TOO. <3 How did you actually do it...? Did you just down the opacity...? Or leave the pencil layer on top?
Reply
:iconcomic-chic:
comic-chic Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009  Professional
I turned the pencil layer into a multiply layer, and for this one I also cut the opacity down so the lines would look tinted by the color underneath.

Niiice. I might have to try that sometime. Fo' sho'. My pencil lines always look better than when I actually ink something :/ Maybe this will make me less fail!

This looks absolutely beautiful! The red/orange hues seem to complement everything wonderfully. I really like the "sketchy" look to the colours as well, like there's a bit of pencil shading under everything. And the different expression and profiles add a nice, expansive feel to it.

This is stunning work =)

Thanks...! There's a textured layer over everything that gives it that rough dirty feel in the colors. Believe it or not, the background is just a really cheesy rainbow gradient I made up in 2 seconds in Photoshop!

I ended up commenting a lot later than I thought I was! :ohnoes:

Anywho, colors turned out amazing!! I love the subtleness of it and how it looks all vintage-y, kinda like it was watercolored or something :D

But every time I look at Ben, I keep thinking that he's gonna get dress coded because at my current high school, you're not allowed to have facial hair.... or about a million other hilarious things, lol :XD:

ah ha ha ha! Boys can't grow facial hair...? what the-! when I was in high school you had to have a belt around your pants because the fad was to wear droopy pants and have your butt hanging out, lol. But they never regulated facial hair. Ben must go to a pretty cool school. ^^

Hahaha, yeah, this is the first school I've been to (or heard of) that outlaws facial hair XD Unless it's "for your religion" but...
Oh, they have that pants rule here too, if you can see their underpants, that is o.o There's also dress codes for no facial piercings, no unnaturally colored hair, no mowhawks over two inches... and I just learned this one today... Seriously, they made at least two or three guys shave their heads for this: No mullets. What?? lol :D

Pssh, Ben's just too cool to be dress coded! ;p

Ben's way too cool for all of that. I think I'll draw his underwear showing just to prove his anti-school rule coolness. :XD:
