Earthworm Jim colours by microUgly Earthworm Jim colours by microUgly

No vectors this time. I splurged and bought myself ArtRage (it's onlt $30) and this is my first colouring with it.

ArtRage is great for creating paintings that look like real-life paintings. But this doesn't look like a "real-life" painting so I'm not sure ArtRage was better for the task than GIMP would have been. But this is the first colouring I've done where the process was as rewarding as the result. So I think I'll do more of this sort of colouring.

The one reason I warmed to vector colouring originally was that I never knew what I was doing when I started. Using vectors meant I could easily and non-destructively tweak things. But I think I'm starting to get more sure of myself so I may use vector less often.

Noo, this one is not dancing any better than I myself can dance ;) But thank you for the kind words. I hope my future work will have better rhythm.

I don't have any tutorials, no. I'm still a learner myself--I do a lot of trial and error :)

Thanks for your comment :)

Holy Crap! It's Earthworm Jim!

If there was one video game to sum up the 90s, It would be Earthworm Jim. Screw that pussy plumber and that heroine-addicted hedgehog. It was all about Jim!

(For the record, I like Mario, but I like Jim more. I DO, However, hate Sonic.)

I'll be honest, I only hired EWJ for a single weekend and couldn't get past the second level (I think). It was the one with the underwater, glass, tubes. I couldn't figure out how to get past the gorillas who would kill you as soon as they seen you.

I'll have to see if I can get a ROM and try it again :) It's not out on Wii Virtual Console is it?

Having said that, I always loved the character design. A worm in a suit--genius!

was gonna ask how the heck you managed that look with inkscape, then I read the comment :)
Looks great, could have been done with copics or similar. Wrt the less vectors thing, perhaps you just need to stylize the vectors differently? Cos with results like this I can't argue against this workflow.... :)
