Hi there,

I'm quite happy to show you this pic, drawn with a nibble (indian ink) on paper. This the scan :

then i colorized it with da lovely Artrage Studio pro.

So i dont want to (and i hope i'm not) make unappropriate ads here about my shop ( which is www.freidshop.com (http://www.freidshop.com) ), but almost all my pics there are made with Artrage (and often Manga-Studio), so i though that i could at least share that news with you :)

By the way, the shop isn't quite finished about english traduction (i'm french), but it works and i am (slowly) working on it :)

C & C are of course welcome.

See you

Beautifully colored. I like the way you are handling keeping the original ink lines without having them be overpowering to the colors of the bricks, grass etc. Are you making them semi-transparent on a layer to get that effect?

Thank you Alkratzer :)

About the colored lines. There is an easy if you have something like photoshop.
You take a nice b/W scan. Then you copy this layer, make a new channel with it. Invert it : boum ! you have a perfect stroke selection. If you apply it to the stroke layer and save, then Artrage opens it with a nice 'only strokes' layer.

After that, if i want to color it, i just have to lock transparent layer property on that stroke layer.

I hope i'm understandable :)
