Colouring Inkthinkers Dwarf by BikerScout Colouring Inkthinkers Dwarf by BikerScout
The original piece that I'm working from is by the über-awesome *Inkthinker - please visit his gallery and show some appreciation!

As a real beginner in the realms of colouring line-art, this image practically leapt off the screen begging to be coloured. There are so many of Inkthinkers pieces that are perfect for this kind of thing. The depth of detail in the lines is extraordinary. A real joy to work on. I've added a couple of closeups so that you can see what I'm talking about.

Possibly the most fun I've ever had with my pants on... :O_o:

With this one, I'm trying to limit my palette to earthy tones. Usually I just pick any old colour, but this time I'm putting more thought into it. I'm also making use of the Swatches palette to keep a record of the colours I'm using, rather than creating a palette layer as I have in the past.

:bulletred: The finished piece can be found here. :bulletred:

I didn't create the character, I only added the colours. *Inkthinker is the original artist. :)

I probably spent about 5-6 hours colouring this.

It's all about control. I like to control the software rather than the other way round!

Yes! The axe handle has been carved featuring many nekkid ladies. Just one of the incredible details adding to the character. :faint:

(I was in awe when I spotted them... :blush:)
