Red-monika-by-randy-green by artmunki
I saw these inks posted a while ago, and finally found time to throw some colours on. I  tried a few different things to fill that big negative space before I finally settled on the location being like some kinda cliffside alcove or something. I'm fairly sure it was intended to be in a cavern or something, but I wanted to try something different. Once I decided that, I knew more or less what I had to do with the lighting - luckily Randy's lines leave things really open to try anything you like.

Of course, I kinda regretted taking this on once I started on the coins. Oh, the coins! >_<

Did another pinup for Uraeus's Morien: Monster Hunter project, which meant I got to play with some more gorgeous lines from Shun. I could just keep colouring this guy's work forever! And yes, I know the blue rimlight doesn't exactly make a whole load of sense, but a colourist's job is to make the art look as good as they can, realism be damned!  ;p

:iconshun-008: awesome lines

See, I'm not dead!

Yeah, I really need to sort my shit out and start being a bit more active hearabouts again. I'm not gonna make any promises this time tho - every time I do I end up being absent for even longer, so we'll just see how things go. In the meantime, I've uploaded a bunch of stuff that I've done over the past year or so but not shown. Still got a few more things to post, but I need to make sure they're okay to show. I'm also waiting for a new project to kick off. Should be going any day now, and this is something a bit different. I'm sure I'll be able to show show of it soon enough tho.
