Nice update. I was actually anxious back then to see this just because seeing Maxwell like that seemed unnatural without color XD

Thanks cobra,
It's amazing how much character a color can give to a drawing.

It has been done, actually, but doing this stuff for practice is always good. As for your job, you inherently did very well. However, it's easy to tell that you just colored the original image on the same layer. In deeper programs, like photoshop or GIMP (gimp is free), you can make multiple layers, which you can color to make the image cleaner than using the fill bucket on the same layer.

That is very good, It's about the same if not better then what I made when I started with this.

As for constructive feedback,
You forgotten to color some things, like grapes yellow eyes, and peanuts tongue.
I'd also like to say that i'm not very fond of the shading, I'd suggest making it in a very minor light tone, and not bright white.
as for the shadow shading, don't drop it in the background like that, it makes it look like cutouts :P.

don't worry tough, I am guilty of doing these things myself back in the day, practice makes perfect, keep at it!


PS.(Check the first posts to see witch one have and have not been made)

Thanks for your replies, I will take it all on board.
What software do you use for colouring it in, I use Corel PaintShop Pro X3 is that any good? Also I don't understand how layers work, could you please explain?
This might be basic information to you but I am only 15!

Well, I don't know if this information will help but I use Photoshop 7 / CS2 and up as my preference, any software can work just as fine as long as you know how to use it tough.

first thing you need to find out is how to use layers, once you understand how layers and multiply works, it's pretty easy.

here is a tutorial i posted before on how to shade, and it also tells you how to add a color layer.
http://necrath.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2h0vvm

The only real diffrence is that you select the correct color, and leave the brush hardness on 100%
Also, a nice tip is to hold Alt and click a drawing, will select that color.

Image

If you notice'd, i have two colors for some, the smaller dot means I use that color, and set the layer on overall.
I normally do this when the background is NOT white, but a shade of gray.
(like Peanuts ear and tail, and grapes overall purple fur)


Not sure if you can open this, (I have Cs2), but:
download link to one of my Photoshop documents.
Perhaps some of you can use it for reference's

Thanks for the help. It has helped me out a lot. I will continue to do this in the future. Thanks.
Any ideas on how to make it so that the colours are better and so I don't have to use fill bucket, (see quote above, I made the key part bold)

The shading tutorial I posted is also how I found it best to color it.
the only difference is that you stay in the lines and use a color.

As for a "fill bucket" option, when you use that, select the layer with the drawings on it, and take a magic wand to selected the outline.
then switch to the layer you are currently using to color, and past it on there.

I might be able to increase the quality of the newly colored comics using GIMP!

Hi guys!
There are still some B/W strips left from translation thread. Is there anyone who could volunteer to color up those remaining ones?
