St Elmo's Fire colored

So here it is, the colored up version of St Elmo's Fire. It's been a while since I've done a piece from pencils to colors. It turned out pretty decently if I do say so myself.. and I will if no one else says it :)

I'm also including the trial color tests that I did to try and figure stuff out ( I pretty much just ended up doing a mash-up of it all in the end).

St. Elmo's Fire inked

So.. I guess I lied. I didn't want to ink it, but I had recently purchased Manga Studio 4 and needed to justify my purchase a bit. Plus keeping it digital would keep me from completely botching up my pencilwork.

I originally wanted more line variation, but in the end I'm okay with how it turned out and the overall line weight choices that I ended up making. Manga Studio is a pretty great program. It even has features that fixes up your lines. I ended up toggling that off a lot though because lines that were too perfect didn't look like I did them. Heh.

St. Elmo's Fire

So, most of the time when I do work on the computer, I usually run Netflix or Hulu or video podcasts on the secondary monitor. Of course, earlier this year, AT&T decides to impose a 150gb bandwidth limit per month citing that it's a necessary step in keeping people from sucking up all the bandwidth. Personally, I think it's just a money grab since bandwidth isn't a finite resource, but whatever.

Anyway, as the amount of free bandwidth I have decreases, I end up hitting Spotify and listening to my random playlists. At one point I got St. Elmo's Fire stuck in my head. Being the big fan of cheesy wordplay that I am, I had draw this image with the muppet Elmo. I tied him in with the weather phenomenon rather than the song, since I actually don't really know what the song's about.

I'm not sure if I'll ink it though since I tend to crunk things up a lot when I ink my own work.
