I hope all those looking here who often ask 'How do I start coloring' seriously look at the second row.

Nice thread.  Very informative on coloring as jalonso said.  I wish there was more threads like this on drawing and construction(one of my weak points).
hehe (ಠ_ಠ ) o_- :p

had a near-finished version of the anglerfish but that computer is having problems. on my laptop now so palettes on the new ones might not match so well

Yes! That is very interesting to see.

I wish more of the artists I admire would post progress pictures-- I like seeing how things come together.

update on monsters:


added a new guy. there won't actually be three of them, just trying out color variations. I already have a lot of green and purple guys and wanted to mix it up so I tried red, but maybe it clashes too much with the others. I dunno, input welcome though.

and progress on the new guy:

lols I used a blue palette I made on the 'new guy' and it looked really good.
So I guess it's my drawing that's really bad and not my colouring.

crits on color choices (within a sprite, or if a sprite seems not to fit with the rest) are especially welcome. the two new ones on the bottom are WIP, the sharkamander in particular.

more WIP stages:

Just want to say that I've never really felt that #11 fits with the others. He actually kind of reminds me of the Lurker from Dead Space.

Anyway, I would say that he doesn't really follow the same style as most of the others. He seems to have a very different form and his texture doesn't have the same sense of oozing sssliminess.

Also, I would say he errs more towards plain creepy rather than eerily cute. Probably somewhat due to his proportions - most of the others have relatively big heads and googly eyes.

yeah I agree with you there. I really like him though so he's probably staying, I guess it wouldn't be as big of a problem if I just had more diversity between creatures, if I do more I'll try to make them a little non-standard.
