A Rose - colours by microUgly A Rose - colours by microUgly
Lines: :iconsythe01: A Rose
Colours: :iconmicrougly:

Coloured in GIMP. I think it's fair to say that I don't know how to colour hair, but I'm really satisfied with the colouring on her skin--especially since I don't know muscle well so I kinda faked it.

The lighting I've created is very much inspired by ~rust2ds photography.

Smoothness of this work is awesome. And the use of colors is inspiring. Good to read you did this in GIMP, hopefully I can achieve similar smooth coloring with that program (someday) :)

I've done very few colourings like this (4, I think). I found in the last two that the best trick for smoothness is to start shading with a very large brush then reduce it's size if you need to. If you start with a brush too small you'll find yourself scribbling the colour on and it's impossible to get a smooth result.

Sounds like a good advice, thanks :)

The hair turned out fine enough, old bean. And, both versions of this one are excellent. ;-)

Thanks for the comments. I'm glad my issues with her hair aren't as obvious to others. I think I just had a different look in mind that I couldn't reproduce.
