Nice colours, very vibrant. There's some nice detail in the colours as well, I particularly like the shading on Wolvie in the first panel, it's very nicely done. The close-up of his face looks a bit... smudgy, for lack of a better term. A lot of the darker areas there seem a bit overstated, too thick. And there's also no shading around the edges to give depth to his face. I just think that panel would benefit from more detailed, subtle shading... dunno if that makes sense. Anyway... other problems. There's some white around the edges in spots, ie the jacket and jeans in the first panel. And I'm not a huge fan of the texture for the sidewalk, it clashes with the smoother look of the rest of the colouring. I'm not too big on the blue street in the first panel, for that matter.
So, okay. I nitpick, as always. :lol: In sum: you have a cool, unique colouring style, very vibrant with a good eye for shading. You just need to work on the aforementioned little details a bit, and it'll be gold.

Thanks guys, that's very encouraging. Coloring's not exactly my forte but something I play with on rare occasion. Yeah, I agree with you on pretty much all points, B. The reason the street is blue in the first panel is that it's an open panel which melds with the sky in the unseen 5th panel beneath it. Yeah, the closeup of Wolvie's face in the 3rd panel definitely needs more attention, particularly when compared to some of the other details on the page. Personally, I like the contrast of the sidewalk texture but I suppose that's a matter of peronal taste; I guess you didn't mind the embossed stone texture on the building as much in the 4th panel :wink: Again, thanks for taking the time to really look this over closely. That was some very solid advice!
Okay, gotcha. I didn't have the fifth panel to judge by, obviously. ;)
The embossed stone texture on the building I had no problems with. It's closer to the same style as the rest of your colours. It fits in a bit better, basically. The sidewalk texture, to me, doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the pic. Like you say though, it's to a degree a matter of personal taste.

I gots mo' moves than U-Haul, yo! :lol: Actually, it just recently occured to me that I'd never shown any of my coloring here so figured I throw a little something out there. I wish I had time enough to do it all but I'm mostly busy pursuing this whole 3D scene thing this past year in my spare time. Since I got such a good response though, maybe I'll try to make a little time for coloring occasionally. :wink: Cheers, Jonny.

I like where this is headed, but it looks like it's only about half way there. It's really tough to use color to shade. I would suggest you shade and color on separate layers and let the blending properties work for you. Also when you have large, presumably flat surfaces to color (like streets and walls), you might want to try using the grad tool. This will help create a sense of depth.
