Making of a grand Yoshimitsu pic

Sum:
I just visualised Yoshi holding a wine glass in his left hand.
Hahaha, yeah, this would totally fit! :D
Chiller Yoshi XD

Hope ur exams went well, Koga. Java sucks btw...had to do an exam too...programming only easy stuss though...in the exercises at least!! The exam itself was damn difficult -.-
Writing a fucking program which calculates logarithms wtf !?
I´m studying economics btw.....who came up with that idea...

Anyway, how´s colouring going? Maybe some other members here could try to colour it as well, Pris e.g. is really good at that ^^

I totally second the wine glass theory!!! :D :D :D

And Gattsu, you must've read my mind, lol. :p When I looked at this, I thought I'd like to colour it... I hope you wouldn't mind, Koga-san? I'm just not sure if I'd be able to colour it right away, but I would like to try my hand at it. ^.^

The sketch is real great, both versions - with, and without, the mask. :)

And take it easy with your thumb... ouch... I hope it heals soon. :(

And here we are, first version of the coloured image:


Haven't given up on this piece yet, gonna make another one that's waaaay better than this, but this one gives the idea of what I'm going after.

EDIT:
Weird... it looks a lot better back in Photoshop than in here. What's going on?

Wow!!! It's awesome!!! I love the color scheme and shadowing, nice work Koga!!

that's so yoshi-epic!!!

Cheers people. :)

I've been working on a new way of cleaning up my lineart, hoping to adapt it to my further projects. I got fed up with the messyness of The Blood Ring completely (both visual and story-wise), and quite frankly I'm considering abandoning that for good. I guess I'll toy around with this piece a bit further before releasing the final version.

By the way, what happened to all the people who wanted to colour it, too? :D

Yours cruelly,

Well....After my attempt at coloring him, I realized that I have no artistic abilities, he just looked terrible, so I figured I would let the artists make the art.... And I think I made the right choice considering your finished product compared to the injustice he endured with me.
