Black Ninja Color Final by Legato895 Black Ninja Color Final by Legato895
well, here it is. my first digitally colored piece of art. i knew i was really breaking ground when it took my computer time to open and save ;)

i hope you like the guy tho. its hard making ninjas that don't copy anything from anybody. i do however, hope that i did a good job trying. i love the colors i used, it all worked out. im not sure what the brown should be, but im glad i put it in! figuring out layers was hard, i kept forgetting to change them when i started something, so after awhile the entire naming thing was screwed, i simply made a new layer when i needed one. im betting thats a bad thing, what do you guys do? anyway, i probably won't make a background for this. the contests almost over (i think) and i have other stuff that unlike this, needs to be done. any C&C would be awesome!

other than that, i hope my style changes. you can defiantly tell im a marker artist i think. hopefully i can paint the same way i graphite at some time.

thanks a bunch! im finally getting used to digital. as to the outfit, thanks! i was trying to go with originality, which is hard because of how many ninjas there are.

Yeah, I know what you mean. That's difficult. Back in college I did a project about a Hitman... but didn't want to draw the typical suave, cool looking, deadly git in a suit with loads of hi tech stuff etc... blah blah... so I tried to work around it by creating smething different to that. The film L E O N certainly helped.

What am I drivelling about... oh yes, yeah you did a good job with an original looking Ninja, it looks like it could be a Ninja but something else aswell.

nice...

Ive been told that the more layers you use the more it works your cpu. I usually break it up in 5-6 layers and add 2 at a tome to do highlights and shadows. then merg them to the original when I am done.

That just looks sooo clean and illustrative.

The style looks identical to that used in the good old "Battletech" board game manual.

I do have the manual stuck away somewhere, but scanning and photographing is a bit too much trouble.. I tried looking for 2 minutes on google but no luck. lol..

Anyway, it looks just like yours. The people are more well lit though (not dark ninjas). Characterized by the thick but very neat outlines and a realistically geared comicbook style.
