Hi Everyone. Firstly I have to say thank you to my new followers, I appreciate your support and your encouragement to me, I hope you will like what I have for you. Big hugs to ALL of my followers, you Very Special people, who share my blog and the things I attempt.
Now onto what you have come here for. My son wanted me to colour a "manga" image for him as he loves the images. I have done this for his 40th birthday which comes up in a couple of weeks. I went online to see what I could find and found this. He is a "gamer" so this is just up his street. He rarely visits here, so he shouldn't see it. I HOPE! LOL
You know I colour digitally which I love to do, but this was out of my scale completely, it was so very detailed. Luckily the artist (Link below) had painted it, so I attempted to copy his work, "attempted" being the operative word. I got nothing like the detail he had, but I was happy with it.
I have learned a lot about digital colouring with this, BUT so much more to learn. I used 25 layers and LOTS of hours to get this effect, I should think the artist probably used at least 3 times that.
The background frame was done with assorted PS brushes, which were colours picked up in the painting. Hope you like this VERY different project. I've added the photo and the original painting, as the details are not good, because of the glass reflection. (I tried every room in the house and outside to get a decent photo)
