Power girl colors by mainasha Power girl colors by mainasha
I colored it and it looks ok yet again. I am really trying to figure out how to get these to sing but it just isn't working. anyway I hop you enjoy it.

For those that are interested I will be selling her original pencils on ebay.

All the art from the recent pin ups I am doing will go into a book called pinups for your pleasure which I hope to complete before this summer for the convention season.

Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

P.s. if anyone is interested me and another deviant diva collaborated on a piece of art. stop over to her gallery and take a look. :iconraccoon-eyes:

I really, really love the face of her on this one. The hair adds a great to the feel of the face or the emotion. I disagree with the coloring issues as I feel it gives her a more feminine feel to the picture with softer/watercolor type colors. The background clouds are simple and not distracting and a nice contrast in color and help soften it as well. I would agree that I would like to see the right leg fixed as it seems to distract the image (my eye wants to go to her legs to see what's wrong). Otherwise one of the best Powergirls I've seen in a long time :nod:. You are a great artist and I enjoyed looking around your site (like the DC cards very much. Keep at it!

There's a nice classic retro feel to this piece that I like.

If I'm not borrowing exclusively from a palette (from existing artwork), I try thinking in terms of lighting. I used to just multiply/overlay black and white, but what I liked seeing in others' work was the interplay between different colors.

For example, the sun gives a yellow cast from one direction while the rest of the sky looks blue/gray. Indoor light looks amber compared to moonlight, which looks blue. Shadows on skin tend to have a red or brown cast. Of course, you're not limited to these colors, as you can make highlights or shades any color you want.

It seems like you indeed have some sky blue in here. It's very subtle, or my monitor is tricking me. With another layer of color, you just might find the effect you're looking for.

I like the way the color came out on this... the white especially looks good with that 'blue-ish' look to it :D

some times a rush my drawing and don't try to fix problems. thanks for the critic. a friend at work said it seems like i rush to get done instead of taking time and thinking things out. i guess it leads to alot of mistakes.

Hey you are welcome !
As you didn't answered i first thought that you didn't liked my critic .. I was upset cause this was only intended to be constructive as I'm far from what you can draw.
I'm kind of rushing too so what I do when I finish a drawing is leaving it for the night and taking a look again the day after and most of the time i can see some mistakes.
Anyway you have a great gallery !
;)

I like this drawing a lot! I know what you mean about trying to get your colors to really shine. It's especially tricky when you're trying to match the original character design. In the past I've tried placing layers of very warm or cool colors over my inital colorings and setting them to low-transparancy mulitply or screen or something to see what random new effects I'd get. In any event this looks awesome all the same, great job with it!

that isn't a bad idea. I really need to work on improving my color theory cause I know I am just not good at it. I will diffinately try to experiment more in the future. color just seems so hard sometimes. but people like it.

Yeah, color's weird. On one hand you can read so much about the different color theories and why certain combinations work, but on the other hand a lot of professional artists and designers will tell you that any colors will work together given the right balance. You could consider picking up a designer's color manual at a book store, they have page after page of samples of combinations that look great together, and then you can try using these in your work. My roommate had such a book, it was very neat. I can't remember the title or I'd tell it to you.
