A Classic Romance by new-moon-night A Classic Romance by new-moon-night
Drawing by Hoa Phong
Color by me! :iconnew-moon-night:

Original can be seen here:

this took me 3 days... about 4 hrs/day.
so about 12 hrs of work, and all i did was color.
of course, my fave X-Men couple. Romy luv!

i think it's fairly obvious what the reference is, but for those who don't know, this was based on Rogue and Gambit's first "attempt" at a date from X-Men #4.
i was VERY happy with how this came out. not only because Phong's style is SO cool and great to color with!

Copyrights of Rogue and Gambit to Marvel.

Those two together make one of my favorite couples of all time. Forget Disney couples, forget fairytales, those two are just perfect and so is this picture.

I absolutely love your coloring technique! It's amazing. I've been trying to get into coloring for a bit now, but sometimes I have trouble knowing where to start and how to go about it (layer and brush settings can confuse me sometimes.... ). I have a Wacom Intuos3 9x12, though, and I've been trying to learn how to use it better. Perhaps you could give me some tips?

why thank you for the lovely compliment. :heart:
this was one of the first serious works i colored digitally.

well, i use a 4x3 DigiPro tablet (nowhere NEAR as nice as the one you mentioned having).
the only tips i can give layering wise, separate EVERYTHING! if you dont, you will regret it later on. and just start off with the flat base colors. i always do skin first.
hope that helps! ^__^
thanks again.

Skin tones are a real pain for me, as they come out muddy when I do them for whatever reason.... I also start out with flats, and I use lots of layers. I don't really get how to use textures and effects well with comic coloring, like for surfaces.

You may have already answered this, but what did you use to color the picture? Did you do it digitally? Used colored pencils? You did a good job with the picture.
