.:SU:. Coloring in SU#50 Cover by SEGAMew .:SU:. Coloring in SU#50 Cover by SEGAMew
Something a little different. Basically decided to do a little coloring practice, and what better thing to color than the preview cover of Sonic Universe #50 :)

What boggles my mind is why Spaz left out Manic's awesome earrings, and why is Sonia sporting shorts. And why do they have their instruments out while still wearing their medallions? Major haxx0rz =P

Decided to give the siblings all different shades of green for their eye colors. Originally was going to give them different greys and brown for eye colors, but that felt a little boring to look at considering how colorful the siblings are. Sonic gets his Modern Sonic green hue, Sonia are more electric green, and Manic more aqua green.

Going "Fair Use" on the cover in terms of copyright here. Could have done some things better in terms of coloring. Critiques are welcomed, Enjoy!

...And then it turned out Sonic Universe #50 was NOT about the Underground and was instead about Metal Sonic again. What a waste!

<3 I adored this show. I also adore this art. Love the slight difference in all of their eye colours. All of the characters look fantastic, random canon issues aside. :P Great job! :3

This is indeed welcomed news for ANY Sonic Underground fan out there! I don't like how Spaz made Princess Sonia wear shorts instead of her canonical skirt (Yes I said PRINCESS Sonia >: P). Looking forward to see more S.U. art from them, but I swear if they screw up Queen Aleena I will RAGE QUIT! #

Well this is one heck of a pleasant surprise! I had no idea this was happening until now, but I'm sure looking forward to this issue now. Also really like your coloring. It is a little dark but I think that adds to the atmosphere.

I disagree with the comment saying it's too dark. I can definitely see how it might come across that way, but I think the darkness you've given the image works well with what I've come to expect Robotropolis to look like. Of course, I'm just one person and everyone's entitled to their own opinion, that's just what I think.

Overall, a great piece of work! I like that you haven't coloured the background in a way that makes it look too distracting.

A bit too dark, methinks. Lost all vibrancy. Also, and personal preference, it'd probably look better with more defined shadows instead of these ones- they're too soft.

So how do you get all the white out of the picture to keep the lines so smooth? I tried coloring this too, but when I take out the white to color the black gets all pixely.

On Photoshop, I'd grab the BW image, resize it some 300% or 400%, and then threshold it. Clean pixely black outlines. Then once resized to normal size, the pixely lines become smooth.

Hah, have fun then! If you don't mind a suggestion, are you going to paint their eyes? I was thinking if so it would be fun to rotate colours- Sonic is blue with green eyes, Manic is green with pink eyes, and Sonia is pink with blue eyes!

:iconziggyfin:
Ziggyfin Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2012  Student General Artist
Yes, yes, yes! That's exactly what I was gonna do!

I always color the eyes last because they are my favorite part to color by the way.

in Adobe Photoshop CS6, I used the "Background Eraser" tool (it's one of the tools in the eraser slot). There's probably a more fancier way to do it (set the layer to multiply or whatever), but I find this way more effective as it keeps the transparency permanently.

I'm not sure if cs2 has the background eraser. But I'll check next time I go on ps. Thanks!

If it doesn't, I can give you the transparent background file if you need it :)

It's fine, I just made the picture like 400% bigger, took the white out using the "SELECT ALL WHITE" thing and ctrl-xing it, then making it normal size again. Now it's fine, my flat colors are almost done!
