Here is my entry for the lineart coloring contest by *mrBOWATER
. This will be my last and most skilled picture of the year so I'm gonna make it great with all the knowledge and skill I have. If I win I will donate the membership prize to my friend ~Aamelo
since he deserves it and I already have a full premium. For the background coloring I decided to go with the exact colors of the Cerulean gym from HG/SS. As for Misty herself I combined the colors of young and older misty. Her hair, shirt and Pokeball strap are based on the pallet of young misty while her jacket, bikini bottom and sandals are based on the color pallet of older Misty. Plus I added in my own originality of a tan and tanlines which I think suit her.
Also was considering going with a shiny Psyduck but shiny is blue and the yellow pops out much better. And can't forget, rather than plain old Pokeballs I went with Premium Pokeballs.
All the skills I've learned in college thus far plus a wave tutorial I like has brought me here. The safety rings are a great addition and all painted from scratch. I kept most of the black outlines so that Misty and Psyduck can stand out more while the background lines can merge with the color. Enjoy! Original Contest Lines: [link]
