Man the way you colour is something else. It reminds me of 70's/80's anime/manga covers, the ones that get rendered out properly, or maybe JRPG concept art from the same era. Akira and Dr Slump-era Toriyama also comes to mind. There's just something about the way you choose to render it out... What's your thought process when you colour?
Old school JRPGs like Dragon Quest and Breath of Fire are definitely one of my major influences and of course anime and manga. The Street Fighter art from Daigo Ikeno or the Final Fantasy art from Amano are such a pleasure to look at and study. I’m always looking out for amazing art :)
A big part of my color process is my line work. I spend a lot of time on it so that it becomes the strong point. If my drawing is strong then the colors can be more secondary where even if I just put down a flat color, the drawing becomes complete. As for color choices, I just choose the ones that make sense and look good to the drawing. Maybe it’s because of my influences, but the colors just look right to me.
Sorry for the late reply. I’m always on hiatus here and there, but I’m thankful for your support and glad you enjoy my art :)
