^^ In color now ~
O_O Dear lord, how long has it been since I actually sat down and legit COLORED something??? <XD I do too many messy sketches, I need to practice coloring more -_-'
I think I messed up Tenten's skintone - nearly got Neji's wrong too, but I think he turned out mainly ok
It's Tenten who was the real pain in this case -_-'
Normally, Neji's the one who fights me on EVERYTHING, from the preliminary sketch to the final watercoloring stage. Once in a blue moon though, Neji actually GOES ALONG WITH whatever crap I draw, and TENTEN has a problem with it . . .
Anyways, here, Tenten was kind of an a-hole. I missed like three shadows on her and had to go back & put them in AFTER I already DID the shading, and the hi-lite on her hair came out really messy . . .
Come on, Tenten! Sheesh! What did I ever do to you, girl?! <XD!
At any rate, Neji was pretty nice about this whole ordeal, which I REALLY appreciated, cuz coloring this was quite honestly pretty damn nerve-wracking - so thanks for that, bro >XD!
Neji really only fought me on ONE thing - HIS LEFT FREAKIN' HAND. In the end, I just gave up on it . . . -_- So I just drew SOMETHING remotely resembling a hand and went with it. Otherwise though, Hyuga was cooperative
* 12/18/12: This is the last thing of Neji I drew before I found out (*SPOILER*) he died . . . while I don't plan on ever stopping drawing him . . . I'm kinda glad this was the last when-Neji-was-alive pic I drew . . . :,)
* Neji and Tenten are characters from the manga/anime 'Naruto' by Masashi Kishimoto
