    Vintage Coloring Book - colored by Ulisses31

    Hello Orgers, I was a little absent from the forums with some work to do and because of the many changes around here.

    I have give it some time to see were this was going and now the storm is over I think, there was some kind of crazy extra activity but is all calm now I hope.

    So lets end this lurking period I was in! And also I had nothing new and MOTU related to show.
    Now I´m back with some art I believe you all will like!
    I´m doing it to improve my coloring skills, this exercise is to make me faster!!!

    I have 25 pages from an old 80´s coloring book that I´m coloring, the first one was the Faker vs He-Man, it took me 2h aprox to make.


    Then I made the Beastman vs Stratos and the Merman attack in about 1h30m each.




    My goal is to reach the 30min mark so I´will try to do the same kind of coloring in all of them until I get to do it in 30min, when I get to do it if any pages left I will do them in a different style and try to reach the 30min mark again... I believe it is a good exercise uhm? Oh and I´m doing one each day... Today it was Trap-Jaw this time I have made a screen capture video and my time was 56m42s.



    Hope you all like it... oh we don´t have a like/appreciation button here... although vBulletin have that feature... ok just comment then. Thanks for your time.



    P.S. For the ones that are thinking... "something is wrong with the colors - blue Merman? Blue Stratos Wings? Yellow Trap-Jaw?"
    Yes I like variants and MINETERNIA RULES!!!

    Awesome! Save for the Trap-Jaw pic, those are all from the coloring book I had as a kid (and still have, actually). That's so cool to see them colored in with competency; my original is obviously massacred by my younger self (and also various other versions of myself through the years as I continued to color in it and write captions in the pictures). Well done!

    That one always cracked me up! Even when I was a kid I thought: "...is Teela firing rocks from her bow, or does she just fire the arrows so hard that they explode?"

    These are awesome! Every time I see the old coloring pages, they bring back so many memories. I really need to print some of them out for my kids to color.

    Keep up the great work!

    I just can´t do it in less than 30 min... should I care less for the result? NO! I just have to like the way it gets so I´m perfectionist... damn... that way I will not get that 30min time...



    So who like this color scheme for RAM-MAN? I like it

    Great stuff, but something I learned is that for shading on clothes and all, adjust the saturation levels of the COLOR you're using. It'll give a less plastic-like finish.

    Disco Skeletor makes a nice drawing but as you said as a figure, i don´t want him!

    Is there a picture of Evil Lyn? I would like to see her colored by you!
