Sorry Helm... I hope you can see them now. I did these pictures as an idea for a kids book. I hope you guy's like it. I post it it in an effort to get my self motivated into painting again.

The first two are actually kinda pretty. I have always been a fan of watercolors though.

The horse on the second one looks a bit too childish. That may be what you were going for, but I think it might've looked better without the black outlines.

The others, I like lots. Nice colors, very moodful. Did you draw the nails on the armor in the last one with a pencil? Cause, I personally would prefer it in paint too.

I think #3 is my favorite.

I like the colors too, and the foliage looks cool. I didn't understand the figure at the tree was a knight in the third one, but I guess the text would clarify that. Still, a little clarity could do good, and it doesn't have to be at the expence of the hazyness.

Oh, and I have to agree that the horse doesn't really fit in with the style of the rest.

Thanks for the comment's....these where taken from a pile of drawings and they came out the best when painted, so there is no clear story anymore...I tried my best to take clear photo's, so that's why it's probably hazy... it was suppose to be child like for a kids book and FS is right on the money with the pencil...I just never got around to painting it and left it. I've never done a horse, but I think the ass end it pretty good :/


Gumby was and the color green, so might have evoked an inner child emotion, so I will let that go

You should practice at dosage. It's really smudgy in some places which detracts for the actual image.

Otherwise, pretty neat.

Yeah, I think I like the first and second one too. The pictures are smudgy mainly to do with my inexperience...I still think SpectarX's drawings could have used some color.

Maybe you'll be ready for color when you grow up.

I actually really like the second picture. I like how you made the path. The knight could be better, I guess. There's something a bit claustophobic about how you arranged that picture, which makes for a very strange 'children-oriented' picture.

I'm glad i'm not the only one who was going to say something positive here. I really like the first tree. It's very sharp looking compared to the rest of the pictures, and it definitely deserves to be a piece of its own. :o

I won't disagree in the fact that they COULD use colour, I just don't want to colour it myself because of fear of ruining it.

I have very little colouring tools.

I have it, and I can't use it to ink or color at all because I can't do anything right.

What I do is get some Rice paper, lay it over the original, trace and color. You can do it again until you have a finished colored version you like. I would love to get a roller ball and learn to color with the computer program, the mouse is impossible for me.

Reduce the scanned image to two colors and then turn the color depth back up again. Duplicate the background into a new layer. Select the magic want and untick the 'contigious' box. Select a white area on the new layer and delete it. You now have a background image and a separate and identical layer containing only the black lines. Now color the background using the paint bucket. Fix the white pockets and other problems by painting underneath the top (lines-only) layer.

The edges around the black lines can get kinda rough. It helps a lot f you scan the page in a higher resolution than you'll need and then resize it after you're done.

Of course I could also just set a new layer to multiply.
