☠ Graphics of unasuvas.

Hello! I've been experimenting with graphic art for a long, long time & I just thought I could share some of my latest icons & stuff with the people of AS. Most of my artistic tastes stem from hanging around LiveJournal too much so you'll mostly just see textless, borderless icons with selective color. Hell, I think it's artsy

I take requests though, so if you want borders & text, I'll try to be flexible.
For now, I'll show you guys my latest icons from the fandoms I'm into at the moment. If anyone wants to snag any, feel free to do so.

[ Digimon Adventure ]
Spoiler:

[ Digimon Adventure 02 ]
Spoiler:

[ Digimon Savers ]
Spoiler:

[ Pokemon ]
Spoiler:

[ Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro ]
Spoiler:

[ Higurashi no Naku Koro ni ]
Spoiler:

[ Umineko no Naku Koro ni ]
Spoiler:

If you saw the Majin Tantei Neuro icons, you can also see that I can color manga pages as well.
Spoiler for examples of my work:

So... I could use some constructive criticism. I seriously love it. Tell me how I can improve on making icons, coloring manga, etc.
Oh yeah, and if you want to see a lot more of my work, click on the banner in my signature and you'll be directed to my livejournal. All my graphics entries are public so no registration is required or whatever.

Requests for Coloring Manga
I do like coloring manga but I have a few guidelines if you want to make a request.
☠ Let me know if you have a specific scan you want me to color or if you want me to look for a scan that fits a given description.
☠ Specify whether you want the page to have a certain color scheme, a certain text, etc.
☠ Be patient! It takes hours to color manga and it usually depends on the image size.
-Two page spread can take up to 7 ~ 10 hours give or take.
-One page can take 3 ~ 5 hours
-Small parts or panels can take 30 minutes ~ 2 hours
☠ I'm usually available to color manga from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. Pacific time.
☠ If you want me to change anything on your finished product, let me know as soon as possible because I save the .psd for two weeks at most. After that I delete it and the only way to edit the finshed product is to color it over again... and I really wouldn't wanna do that.
☠ Let me know if you want the .psd well.

It's really nice work. I like how you've really made the colors so vibrant, and the manga pages look great! I can't really find anything to critique honestly, but maybe I'll think of something later.

Same here. I think the coloring is great. You have chosen perfect colors to match the manga black-white style. A lot of people who color mangas tend to use way too bright colors thus making the pictures look not that great D: but yours, I could easily say, that they could be the originals. Also I don't really think there's anything wrong with your icons either. Maybe on some of them, the font could be better but that's it I guess. Nice works.

@ everyone
Wow, thanks for all the feedback & cookies.
I'm glad you all liked my coloring.
Looking forward to more feedback & critique soon.

@ Dreamiel
I'd be happy to fulfill that request. Do you have a certain scan in particular that you would like me to color? Or do you want me to look for a suitable scan? Because I'm comfortable with both. ^.^

[ Original scan. ]
Source: From Kataribanashi-hen. Scans from koesuki.
Time: about 8 hours

Hope you like it~
Whoo, this is the longest I've ever taken for coloring, even for a two page spread.
But it was really fun to color & I have to admit that this scene is really cute.

That looks really professional. Yup.
I think I will request something too, I just need to search out a scan later, if you don't mind.

Sure thing! Can't wait to see yoru request scan.
In the mean time, I colored a short little panel from ... I forgot what the source comic is but I'm pretty sure it's from koesuki...

Click for a larger image.


[ Original scan. ]
Source: I'm pretty sure it's from some sort of Higurashi Anthology...
Time: about 1 - 2 hours?

Any criticism, comments or questions? Is it obvious that I have no life outside school & PhotoShop?
EDIT: I just saw my comments on my reputation thingy and apparently someone wants to see a tutorial on how to get the coloring on my icons. I'll post it up when I have the time.

Eh? Sorry, I'm afraid I don't understand. I didn't draw anything here.
I merely colored manga scans by manga-ka and other artists. I suck at drawing anyway.

The new stuff looks really nice. Don't suppose you'd be willing to share some coloring tips or even a small tutorial with how you color a page/panel?

Sure, I'll make a tutorial for manga coloring and avatar coloring soon. Probably Sunday at the earliest (School & rehearsal for a school play is preventing me from making it any time before then ). But just so you know, I learned a lot of coloring tips from someone called Amaretti, so I suggest you check out this person's basic & advanced coloring tutorials.
