Sorcerer on Tree -Variant by RyanKinnaird Sorcerer on Tree -Variant by RyanKinnaird
I had an idea for a color varient for this illo [link] and decided to see how it would come out. I deliberately used some bright, luminescent, saturated colors that only a computer monitor would display (though it's probably gotten desaturated already by the interwebs conversion here).

I am really looking forward to the age of digital paper. I'm sure it will pose it's own problems with color accuracy, but they should in theory, be less than that of a hardcopy print. Humidity in the air, the type of ink, and the type of paper can vary results dramatically. Hell, having a different press operator of the same press can actually cause a color shift. The amount of variables in the quality of a print job is really staggering.

Though the internet likes to screw with the colors too for some reason which I can't quite figure out why yet.

I have your Phoenix comic from years ago, and a couple pages had print gremlins. Well, if everyone follows suit and gets tablets of one kind or another, those problems can be replaced by the individual characteristics of every screen and how the users have the contrast and brightness set to.

Well, it seems fine, though I suppose the original had more subtle colors?

Your art makes me want to write again. I love your style and wish I had your talent. Anyone ever tell you you have the perfect style to draw Vampires? Anyways good luck!
Gretgor Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008
Wouldn't you mean "sorceress"?

But still awesome drawing, with an awesome face style(perrrfect lips, eyes and nose), great (and sexy) body drawing, awesome coloring (I couldn't even noticed the internet had eaten some of it) (with all the shiny and shady details), I also love her sexy outfit... Great rod in the awesomeness of it's style and magic-effects. I also love the creepy-fantasy BG.

Is it just me, or does she actually look tasty?

Used a fractal for the effect, eh?
Turned out well, nice job.
Seelenernter Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2007
Yeah cool outfit, I like that she isn wearing these sky high heels for a change.
I love the trainer/tennis shoe but still sexy patent look, looks like she could battle in em, an doesnt have to think to fall every two steps.

I like both of these versions. it is really amazing how the different color schemes can give the same piece such a different feel. Great work! :D

YUMMY SO HOT!!! Nice outfit, especially the shoes!
joemighty16 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2007
Very nice colouring effects! Dunno how much you lost in the de-saturazation process but it still looks very good.

I still can't get over ow well you did the outfit!
SuperMichaelMan Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2007
amazing work, i still cant figure out how to color so that the lines wont be there, and still make it look like it has form!!!
wildmayfly Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
i love what you have done with the tree.
though feet to me look a tad bit small.
but who knows, maybe i just have a love for big feet :lmao:

but in all i'm in love with the tree and your colouring of her hair.

Francisgenois Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
great color and light effects!
KaijuDuke Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
i envy the fantasy characters who get to meet hot women who shamelessly dress in clothes like the ones she has on, lol
Stigmartyr762 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
The change in colors gives the picture a slightly more Asian feel to it for some reason.
keviant-art Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
great work! :)
1337Samurai Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
it reminds me of Ivy from soulcalibur...the color scheme anyway
Gabe-Kai Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oooh, so pretty and shiny...
shanejayell Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Hobbyist Writer
Not bad.
Reminds me of that Phoenix thing you did, too
Shane-Rodriguez Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
she cast her spell on everyone that lays they're eyes on her. great pic! -trinity

Nice work. Loving the how the hair turned out. I agree with you regarding paper. Though I like to draw in paper, it is space consuming and deteriorates. I would like to see how digital paper would work. Long as it allows me to draw like I draw in normal paper I don't mind. Drawing with a mouse is a pain in the neck for me! >_<
OhlookitsMatty Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Professional General Artist
The pose is really weird cos her feet dont seem to be touchin anything, so how does she keep her balance?

NoughtySpankbottom Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
Lovely job on the colouring once again.
De3pBl4ck Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
The shiny factor doesn't detract from the beautiful linework you used to make this.
I understand about the color de-saturation business.
It would be nice to see if digital paper would alleviate some, if not most, of the technical issues involved in transferring digital color to paper hardcopy.

Thought this looked familiar. ;) Good work.
beachbead Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
fantastic work love the coloring and the many details.
ckirkillustr8 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
Excellent work. Maybe the shift in colors is due to the internets range of 256 colors.
anime-tiger09 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
nicely done
Drawgasm-Designs Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
The art is fantastic, the only thing I have to point out is that you spelt 'variant' wrong :P
RyanKinnaird Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
Thanks, Fixed ;)
Drawgasm-Designs Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2007
Sorry to bitch about it, but spelling is my pet peeve :XD:
