Toshinho's Blade Collector by falingard Toshinho's Blade Collector by falingard
For :icontoshinho:'s colouring contest, as described here.

It is definitely FUN to colour a piece like this. I have not had so many chances to do that in the last months. One of the things requested for the contest was to cover the character's luggage with various corporate sponsor logos... at first I was going to design some fictional ones, so as not to use real-world company logos, but that proved far less entertaining than the rest of the colouring process, so the idea came to me to use real-world webcomic logos instead. Everybody loves webcomics, right? This is what inspired the "panels" in the background afterwards. Silly? Eh. Self-promoting? A little bit. Awesome? I don't know! I'm definitely proud of my colouring on the character herself, at least.

Two Rooks looks a bit too serious for me, but OH MY GOD True Magic is AMAZING! <3

The panels in the background look great, although I probably wouldn't have caught on to the link between them and the logos if you hadn't said something about it. :)

As I said elsewhere, I admit that they look more like floaty sci-fi monitors than anything else XD But I'm okay with that!

Wicked colouring. And there is nothing wrong with self promotion. I'm actually glad that I recognize some of the logos.

The whole paneling behind the character works nice, also.

I looooove the detail you put into this and the colors. Just too awesome. And all the detail snapshots behind the image make it look even more futuristic. XD

The images in the back were at first supposed to be like comic panels, but yeah, I know they look a lot like floating screens XD I kinda like the effect

Actually, I think that the webcomic logos add a nice touch and are much more entertaining myself. I mean, little Easter Eggs like that are always a treat.

As for the rest? That's pretty frikkin' epic. I like the various close-ups set in comic-panels, this is also a nice touch.

There were already hundreds upon hundreds of strips when I got into webcomics, and that was just too daunting a backlog to go through XD

I know you didn't draw the original image, but I can't help but hear Linkara saying "Spines don't bend that way!"

Very beautiful colouring indeed, and the background panels you added there give a very neat feeling to the picture itself.
And gotta admit, those webcomic logos on the weapon look nice. I'd say there's nothing wrong with a little self-promotion as logn as you can get it fit in the pic casual-like ;)
