    Colouring

    Not so much a work in progress, but a technique in progress. C&C welcome. Thanks.

    I've been adapting a technique I saw by steveo over at Worth1000 which uses gradient maps to colour. I think it's an AWESOME idea. You should check out the original here (I am working at adapting it, but the original is SO worthwhile to read):

    It looks like a great technique Phil... the only thing I notice is that some of the shadows look a little off (shirt collar and hair onto neck) and where her hair meets the background.

    THANKS for that feedback! Awesome. I hadn't noticed. Hair's a bit of a pain to mask and I must have rushed that left side. Thanks. I'll definitely be more careful with that.

    I think I would use a similar color for the wall in the background to solve that problem...

    great man, the SlikFairy should be getting pretty scared now

    Indeed, the shadows are a bit untouched. And although the coolness of partial colourization is a fact, for competition sake, it's better to do all in colour.

    Could you share more on the refining of that technique here please?

    cheers

    Thanks wisbin. The start of my adaption has been U2Ued to you.

    Which areas are you referring to as only partially coloured? I coloured it all... if it's too subtle I should be paying attention to it.

    the background seems a bit uncoloured (still) and the shadows of the blouse. Did you put the blueish gradient over it as suggested in the tut?
