Does it have to be colored in by hand or can it also be done on computer?

EDIT: *goes back and reads top again* oh, okay, nvm.

(Yeah. She was originally created to be a cosplay character (an ANBU Black Ops Agent from Naruto), and migrated to a Naruto RPG.)

im working on it now, so far 30 minutes of work done.

btw: rii namuras, your gonna have to save them a lil higher res, coloring in between all these rly pixelated lines hurts my eyes @.o and my tablet broke a week ago and im using a mini mouse now so now my eyes and hand hurts =(

EDIT: also, whats behind her left hand? O.o

EDIT: yeh i think i lost some of my CG touch for not making any cg in so long, but i think some photoshop skills made up from it

Image
and im posting it on deviantart if u dont mind rii namura, mainly because i need to post something up there besides my photoshop effects work, Ill give credit to you for the lineart.

also sorry that it doesn't follow the naruto ninja color theme, im not real familiar with it.

EDIT: replaced with one that had the sword shaded btr

I had some free time, and got my entry done.

I decided to go with the anime version Konoha ANBU color scheme, and had fun with the background, complete with rickety wooden fence (no I'm not a Narutard... *looks away quickly*) :
Image

and rii namuras, would it be alright for me to put this up in my deviantArt account, crediting you, for a collab? If so, do you have a dA account so I can credit you?
Thanks.

:edit: I did the whole thing with a mouse, something I haven't ever done, but my tablet is out of order for a while until I get a new pen. It was tough, since I'm not used to using a mouse anymore... :D

(Wow, everyone's entries look great! I'm loving how the boots always seem to turn out a lot like the actual ones they were based off of.)

(And sorry about the late replies, I just got back from a debate tournament and am suffering from a cold. So yeah. >_>)

(As for the devart requests, sure, I don't mind! I don't have one myself, but I'd like a link so I can see it.)

(And I'm terribly sorry, Sonicbomb, but my scanner doesn't entirely work properly, so that was beyond my control. x_x It looks nicer on paper, honest.)

Thanks, rii. Here's the link to mine on dA: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/55003254/

Sorry to bother, but do you happen to have another art gallery or site you'd like linked to for credit?

:edit:
And comments since I forgot last night:

ShadowCat - I like the highly contrasted lighting you used, and nice job on the smooth shading, and giving the lineart depth by blurring out the farther back part.

Sonicbomb: I like the subtle coloring you used, and the autumn color scheme works well too. I especially like the effect you achieved with her glasses, and the stylized background.

Oooh, here's mine with the background/scene. :3

It's supposed to look like she's about to leave, ad her picture gets taken. The Kanji means "Luck." The camera, however, captured more than just the nice trees. o.O

(I'm working on the art site. I'll let you know when it's done.)

(Anyways, my coloring! ~ I like the background, to be honest, though it took all of one minute to do.)

It looks good rii, the background is indeed clean, but its too contrasting and kinda the attention grabber.

The shadows in the hair doesn't rly follow the source that the other shadows follow.
I like it alot tho, it looks very good. ^^

Lovely coloring, Rii. I like the color scheme you used. And how the background plays a visual trick with the checks you're not looking directly at appearing to be red rather than black. ^^

Thanks, Vernal! ^_^
