Valiant by RedKid11 Valiant by RedKid11
colored version of WIP and process can be seen here : [link] ( i've put the post on top, well. for now, that is- hahah )

even the scanner at the scanner's place couldn't pick up every detail, like the 3rd panel's light grey colors are all dotty.
but i think it works just fine ;D i actually think it kinda looks like a filter, geheheh.

although- i think i'll just leave this to be done with watercolor. i haven't done any watercolor stuff ever since.. well- i can't even remember. maybe 2 years ago-ish?
but it's fun, loads of fun. i think i've rediscovered ( more like is reminded ) of how much i absolutely love drawing and coloring traditionally.
the technique i used for this is wet on wet. so basically you brush some water on the surface of the part you're going to color, then wait a bit before actually coloring it- so it'll come out all thin and flowy and smudgy and drizzly. please forgive my language- i can't english.

as for the title- i picked Valiant because it gives a different vibe from the previous black and white one. this one- has spunk and color. and also hope- which is what i get from listening to the theme. see if you agree, hahah.

as always, comments are very welcomed. if you have suggestions, fire away, people.
see you next time. <3

Now imagine if this was on a stained glass panel. That'd be nice.

I don'T think I commented on this one yet. It's very refreshing to see you working with traditional media. It works very well with your style :)

Watercolor was never really my forte, I'm still trying but hey, maybe one day :plotting: My favourite panel is the left btw. I like the concept and how you colored Cocoon o.o (sorry for being weird but that was the first my gaze was attached too. Shiney colorrrz )

hahah, thank you.. glad you liked it.
watercolor is hard because it's like you're working against time and you can't really afford making errors..
but i've found out that if you use a really thick paper- (220 gsm and more) you can wash the error away with water and it won't ruin the paper (;
ah- my fave is the first panel too. shiny colors are fun to play with

i hope we get to change her outfit to the first one aswell....i mena come on!! Etro gave her that armor outfit...then she remains in valhalla where time does not flow, she get's to sleep in chrystal at the end of 13-2....so she should b able to still walk around in the 1st outfit... + Etro you know!

i mean if Etro now are.....what she are then their old dresses7outfits should come back. Cause the outfit including the skills are blessed by Etri...and if she is. what she is at the end..then it should disappear like a spell disappear when you kill the caster who did that spell on you

ahh yeah that's true- when she woke up she should still be wearing the armor from ffxiii-2, but i think because it is a new era that she's woken up to, and she needs to be stealth and not really stand out, ergo the new attire. although i'm not really sure it doesn't make her stand out- at least not as much as wearing an armor, that's for sure..

hahah, i'll have to say that the 1st outfit is my favorite. but that's true, the game's changed and so has her outfit to fit her role, so it's all part of it.
