So I found this black and white image of Tsukisaki Yuu from the manga, "Pastel" by Kobayashi Toshihiko and absolutely LOVED it!!! Being a big fan of this manga series, I do feel quite passionate about it...so, when I came across this image, I just had to color it!
Anyways, after 4 hours with Photoshop, here are the results! I focused alot on the hair...if you looked closely, there are ALOT of color variations in it...and I also spent alot of time trying to "soften" her skin a bit...I think I failed in the sense that the lines are still a bit choppy.
I'd love to get critiques! Also, for the people with Photoshop, anyone know how to make the dark lines less choppy?
