So I got tired of writing. I am flighty this way. So I instead decided to work on the picture of the adventuring group I started drawing, um, three visits to Carmen ago? She was still living at her old place anyway...

Whatevs, my inability to draw a picture in under two years is not what's being discussed anyway. Line art finally done and inked and scanned and converted to RGB and everything!

I am sort of finished with the flat colors. Finished, as in only Athena's earring hasn't got any color to it, but you will not notice. Sort of, as in hey, poll the audience time. Some color choices are up for change. Such as, like, all of Athena. Because I have no idea what her color scheme is. And Crunch. Because I just used the same colors I did as the last picture of him. (Except with a shirt this time. Classy.) Carmen can suggest colors for herself, but maybe I shouldn't do that because she will be silly and say her knee patch should be magenta. So maybe everyone but Carmen should suggest colors instead. (Unless you will also say magenta, in which case you are vetoed as well.)

Ignore the gradient background. I didn't want it to be solid and slapped something on just for you guys.

For Athena I would suggest shifting her shirt color to something more pinkish rather than the autumny-reddish tone you have. She's not the one to wear fall colors, more spring-like. Same with the ribbon on her corset.

Her eyes should be a touch more blue in tone and so should Tae's. Tae has almost blue-blue eyes. Also, please no orange ties on her shoes? It works well with the periwinkle robe and for the fact you're doing a sun sort of motif but I really don't like the orange lacing on her boots.

So yeah, shift Athena's color scheme to something less autumnal and more springish and her base hair color should be a shade lighter. But otherwise I like everyone. Did Carmen get a haircut? ;)

I gave up on figuring out Athena's colors and did totally steal her colors off of an autumn-based color palette. (I thought it (the cheat sheet) was pretty, but I'm a heathers sort of girl, so it's to be expected.) I did remember the pink, thus the red blouse. (The ribbon on her corset is staying red though. Everyone with ribbon-y pieces has them red. It's a theme. (Sort of accidentally, anyway.)) I will scrounge up something suitably springy enough for her clothes. (Hm, change Carmen's pants color, give that color to Athena... Bleh, check it when I get home.)

Tae's shoes were originally a gray-ish sort of color and I liked the way the orange popped with it. And then I changed her boots and forgot about the accents. Now whether to continue the red ribbon thing I've got going, or going with no-nonsense almost-black. (Obviously you should make a character sheet for her. Then we wouldn't have this problem. =D)

Carmen's braid is just laying particularly flat. -_-;;

I would go for the red boot strings, I think that'll go fine with the rest without being orange. I also like the idea of gray boots. (And yes I do see that unsubtle prod to finish up those sketches of the girls I did. ;P)

Hrmm, the only thing I can see to 'fix' Carmen's braid is either to drape it over a shoulder or add part of the first section to the left side of her head to suggest it. If you want to do so.

Also, do you want Tae's robes to be more sun colored? I'm working on inking the sketches I already have and I want them to look more 'correct' than they do right now.

Tae's official garb is probably healer white. Being an intinerant healer makes for dirty work, so likely she would only wear it for functions she couldn't get away with wearing something clean and pretty and her rope sash.

A lighter blue would probably work, but I've kind of already made that the main color for Jadus, so the periwinkle-ish color works.

Hey, also, changed around Athena's colors. Work any better?

Considering the robe portion of the refs I was/am doing is the 'formal' gear, I'll probably do white and periwinkle then.

Athena's colors are dead on now. Much more fitting to her character. Word of suggestion for Carmen's jacket- good general area for the green but I'd use a much more desaturated version of it.

It was over in the bright section, wasn't it? I think the only thing further over is Crunch's gold (for obvious reasons). Any better or should I drag my color bar left more?

Also, any idea how gray Crunch should be? I made him darker, he was looking kinda goth-y.

Maybe a touch less saturated (so yes, go a bit more left). Also for Crunch, what color palette is it when you eyedropper his skin tone? Yellows? Oranges? If you got a little more brown/saturated with him, he'll look less dead.
