SoulxMaka - Starriness by clannoire SoulxMaka - Starriness by clannoire
Soul/Maka fanart I coloured. Brilliant lineart is done by the brilliant ~SweetJanie, which you can find here. =)

This fanart was part of an excercise in lighting, and part fanarty tribute to my newest fandom, Soul Eater.
I originally coloured it with subtle, cold colours. Then I upped the saturation for more vibrant colours, and liked it. O.o I didn't know which version I liked more, so I included both. ^.^;; Eheheh. Personally, I'm in love with big, bright vibrant colours so I prefer the second version ... anyone else? O.o
You can read my thoughts on the WIP here.

While colouring this, this song got stuck in my head. >.< IT'S SO APPROPRIATE. ^_^ THIS FANART HAS A SOUNDTRACK, AHAHAHA. I immediately downloaded it and listened to it while I was finishing this, and was like, ^______^

I named this piece 'Starriness', because in the Soul Eater ending theme, the AEN fansub team translated the phrase 'kuzu boshi' ( クズ星 ) as 'starriness', and I liked it. ^.^

ETA: Thanks for the faves, folks~! *massive cyberhug* ^___^ You all make me a very happy Cappy. XD

Very pretty! I like the second one more, lots of nice colors. You managed to stylize the characters well--they still look like themselves.

I saw this on Google images and I was all like "I AM SO LOGGING IN AND FAVING THIS!! :eager:" Great job on the coloring~ I like the more subtle one, though. Fits the whole "Soul Eater" mood.

I love that song!!!!!!!!!! I first heard it after I watched Stardust (amazing movie!!!!!!!!!)

I totally agree the song fits perfectly!!!

I actually like the first version better just because to me it looks like the anime more but idk thats just me, but the second version is very good I also like the vibrant colors and everything. Anyways amazing job!

You'd better ask ~SweetJanie first, because it's her original linework that I ujust coloured in. ^^ But if you provide credit, then I don't see why not! XD

Link me to the fic when you're done, too~! ^^ I'd love to check it out! ;D

Nicely done! How did you do your shadow tinting? is it anything like i do with mine?
Reply
:iconclannoire:
clannoire Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2008
Thanks, babe! ;D

I wouldn't know how you do your shading so I don't know how to compare ... O.o but basically I picked a base colour for their skin and hair, mixed it in with dark blue/purple (because I was thinking blue/purple nighttime lighting), and used it as the 'shadow' colour.

Then, once I picked out the places where shadow and light should be, simply coloured everything in on one layer, and blended in the lighter and darker colours using the smudge tool and layering with semi-transparent brushes. =P I took most of my pointers from here, and adapted from there ...

Uhh ... hope that made sense! XD
