Bwah ha ha!!!

Alright... Diclaimer right now... I DID NOT DRAW THIS PICTURE!!! I merely colored it. All the color is my own work. Here is a link to the original drawing:


and a link to the actual gallery (as per the request of the original artist):


And here, is the coloring I did... I was trying a new technique that I have not done before... using bright, brilliant colors and dulling it down with layerstyles to add a dark, sinister feel to it... I removed all lines and merely soft shaded... and I quite like the outcome... what do ya'll think?


As you have guessed, it is Ginny Weasley writting in Tom Riddle's Diary.

I like the hair the best =P

Sorry if it appears dark to anyone... it looked better in my Photoshop... I guess the .png darkened it... meh... oh well =P That... or it is my browser.

Thats awesome Matt. The hair is great :biggrin: The shading looks really well. And the shadows are perfect.

Doesn't look dark to me.

Thats an awesome recoloring.

The shading is cool, the hair is perfect, the colours are nice. To me the nose spoils it :tongue: but then again it was Tealin who drew it... doesn't look dark to me...

Looks really neat, but I'd say it needs to keep the outlines to clean it up.

wow, that's a difference from drawing to colored. :eek:

I think the background looks weird because it's mostly one color except for the shadow. maybe some different shadows....
and maybe the face is a little plain. a little darker on the right side because of shadow from the candle.

good experimenting. :wink:

Yes, I wonder what is the background...? I know its the wall but still kind of makes it look techno :P

Are you going to do some more?
