Heroes of the Arcadian Skies (painting process) by darkspeeds Heroes of the Arcadian Skies (painting process) by darkspeeds
I'm starting to take an appreciation of this painting method where you work out the tonal values of the entirety of the drawing first.


After getting the values right I added an extra layer in OVERLAY mode and coloured it from there.

Cool coloring technique!
I never thought of coloring line art that way before.

As much as I don't go for Sonic in general, I love how these fan-made renders like this one come out; it shows a lot of love in your community :D

I always love looking at the processes of artwork. Never would have thought of doing the tone values before adding the color. *makes mental note of this* xD

This is awesome, I thought you were making it look like a sketch by each step there. xD But nope, you surprised me with magnificent colours. Well done.

Damn, dude. It's been a long time since I played one of my fav Sega consoles titles. We're getting tired already for asking for a sequel of this game.
It could be a good idea if Nintendo help Sega to work for this title since they are helping it in the issue of "financing" for the next Sonic game.

I'm curious to know how the story goes should there be another Skies of Arcadia. :D
