Lol this is not an art show XD! But I really discovered a new fun thing to do out of boredom ^^.
I’m doing some manga colorings~ ^^. Yeah, I’m totally dead-bored today since my computer had a virus attack, which forced me to reformat it, and leading to the loss of my 07-Ghost AMV file T___T. I’m totally back to zero now and I apologize for that. And since I’m pissed off and dead bored, I just find a way to do something to cheer me up and try something different ^^. I wanna thank Fuyu, because she inspired me to color manga too ^^. I know I’m still not as awesome as her yet. and never will be~ (*worships Fuyu*), but I’m trying my best ^___^ *bows*. Also, isn’t manga way more fun to read when it has color? Color is life~ XD.
1: Kaichou wa Maid-sama
So I’m reading Kaichou wa Maid-sama, and I totally laughed my ass of on the part where Usui is chewing some gum (just read it~ XD) so he will be my first victim XD!!! Ohohoho~
Btw, I added watremarks though so that nobody would be stealing my pieces~ *glomps them* But lol for sure no one will be stealing them anyway since they aren’t that good to be stolen XDD.
So yeah, the OP pic is my “practice” photo, and I had a reaaaallly hard time at first with his stubborn hair. Too much lines argh! But that’s about it though and everything else was fun ^^.
And then I haven’t got enough of Usui and made my second practice piece from him again XD. Same procedures, started off with his hair, then the rest, his gum. And added a cute effect to the text ^^.
And now to take on something more detailed and challenging~ This pic is from 07-Ghost manga chapter 39. I won’t discuss anything beyond that though to prevent spoilers. So yeah, I’ll colour up this one ^^.
The scan is quite dirty though so first step is cleaning all the gray mess scattered throughout the pic, since they will make coloring difficult while they are still on. So yeah, from Frau’s eyes to Teito’s face, as well as the unnecessary “dirt” in it was removed ^^.
Just like my first practice pictures, I started with the hair. I’m totally telling you that coloring the hair is the most difficult part because strands are just so annoying. I made the “dirty blonde” touch to Frau’s hair by first brushing light blonde, then added the darker shades afterwards on the upped parts. On Teito, this is more harder since his hair on the original scan hair white parts. What I did is I vectored it then I added the dark-brown color later. Vectoring is quite hard and it takes so much wrist control. My wrists totally hurts lol. And then the faces, I added a slight red to Teito’s since he’s hurt, while I added a darker shadow on Frau’s forehead just like the shading on the original pic.
And then we head on with their clothes. I made the regular dark blue color for Frau, since that’s his color on the anime version, while I just invented a new one for Teito, because this outfit of him is still yet to be shown in the anime. I picked dark green and lighter green for his sleeve. Coloring is so much fun ^^~ I had troubles on their hands at first, but afterwards I’m all smooth ^^. Also, I didn’t colored Frau’s necklace since I preferred it as is light silver ^^ and I’m too lazy XD.
Continued on with the bottom half. It was hard though, because everything was so dark and the scan I have is too small so I can’t see up close very much properly on which hand belongs to who XD. So anyway, I also put up the blood, more blood~ That’s the most realistic color I can blend. And then, splattered it all over Teito’s arm while laughing like a psycho bitch XD. Kyahahaha~!!! That was the most fun~ just kidding xP. And then finally added the dialogue, “Don’t leave me and go off your own, damn brat.” LOL. Annnnd…
Just added some random background and IT’S DONE!!!
And I added more effects and ruined everything XP. I totally had so much fun on re-coloring it. And for what I thought was really hard at first just by looking at other people do it, it was actually pretty easy, short and really fun to do ^^. So feel free to try it~
Btw, totally unrelated to the whole post, but I added two more banners on the roster~!!! Both are APH and they’re some of my fave countries~
Greece is just mandatory for my banners. He’s so freaking hot… But even though he’s quite labeled sometimes as the smexfiend!Greece, there’s still a really cute side of him that makes him more awesomely huggable. He likes cats!!! And cats definitely likes him too ^^. And that’s why we all love him. OMG I wanna be a cat too~ Meow~ XD.
Wooot for my fave straight OTP on Hetalia! Really, sorry Roderich but I prefer Gilbo more! Both are so damn awesome, like Mr. and Ms. Awesome XD. And GILBOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kyaa~!!! He’s so protecting Hun-chan~! I luv ’em both to bits <3<3<3.
