Hello! I'm manga colorist.
A lot of my works are manga colorings, not drawings.
DON'T POST MY COLORINGS ON TUMBLR! MAKE REBLOGS FROM MY BLOG: vermeillerose.tumblr.com/
Despite the fact that soon a new Kuroshitsuji chapter, I have to take a break in the coloring.
I was never happy with my works, but now I almost hate them. Over the past year I have done very little good colorings.
For this year there were a lot of red and blue colors, monochrome and miserable in color (at the beginning of last year everything wasn’t so bad).
I spend a lot of time to make linearts, which coincide with the originals almost by 99.5%, but I don’t know what to do with them in the process of coloring. They stand out very much in the picture, and if I make them lighter, then the picture loses borders and turns into a daub (I began to feel a strong difference between vector and raster lineart).
A sharpening effect appeared due to the fact that I began using some brushes oddly, and that now I always reduce the size my works (so that they will not be sold).
When I try to color differently, it still comes out as usual. I got into a ‘vicious circle’.
Many noticed that the colorings began to appear less often, but it seems to my sister that I almost every day do something (do linearts, prepare the bases, color). I spend a very long time on mediocre coloring (I can’t call it in another way ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). Previously, I almost didn’t have the desire to throw the started picture, now I want to drop each of them, but I have to force myself to finish at least one picture a week.
Even when I recall the pages and frames which I stored for the better times for several years (favorite characters, the most beautiful scenes in my opinion), I can’t bring myself to start coloring them, because I understand that it will be disgusting in result. And I like them too much, I can’t afford to spoil them.
It seems to me that I experiencing degradation. I don’t want to make bad-quality
manga colorings, but I also don’t understand how to correct my mistakes.
In the end, I came to the conclusion that I need a break for 2 weeks, maybe a month, if necessary, more.
Maybe during this time I’ll draw, maybe I’ll try something new, maybe I’ll return to something old (pixels ~). In any case, it’s not so shameful to spoil own drawings like to spoil the manga pages.
But it may happen that I can’t do anything, and I will simply rest from the tablet, and from my self-criticism.
Maybe someone noticed that the sizes of my colorings has become smaller recently.
This is due to the fact that my colorings are sold on amazon, aliexpress, in many internet anime shops. I don’t like this (╥_╥)
I don’t want to add the watermark on colorings, so as not to cover the half of work. Therefore, now the size of the colorings will be no more 1000 pixels on the larger side (sometimes less).
Who loved to open my colorings and view the details, excuse me m(_ _)m
Please don’t buy things with my colorings.
You can print the colorings in print-shops for your own personal use or as a gift to someone :3 (If you’ll need a large size for printing, just write me, I will share it with you)
