Psylocke Colors by alvinsanity Psylocke Colors by alvinsanity
Great pencil work by :iconharveytolibao: as always

Colors by yours truly

Original Pencil line art [link]

Took me about 15+ hours to finish. I had to change the background 3 times, I should have finished this yesterday.

2nd attempt at digital illustration using Photoshop.. Yup I've just started using PS for coloring and artwork since August, and I think I need a lot of improving to do.

Wiki-info:
Psylocke (Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock) is a fictional character depicted in comic books published by Marvel Comics, most notably those comics featuring the superhero team the X-Men. Created by writer Chris Claremont and artist Herb Trimpe, she first appeared in the UK comic book Captain Britain #8 (Dec. 1976), by the Marvel imprint Marvel UK.

Psylocke possessed the power of telepathy, she could read and project thoughts over long distances; control minds; subdue and tap into other's powers; affect people's memories; project mental illusions; and generate psi-bolts that could stun, injure, or kill others.

Done in Photoshop.

I love the perspective to this and her expression fits the mood perfectly. The colors are great and the way you've the done reflected light is perfect; especially with the way you added the shine on the leather. Shame you couldn't have colored the background though, from what the pencil art has. ;)
Photoshop takes some time to wear in, I find loads of odd things everywhere and I just think to myself: Woah, when did that get there?? Ehhehhe~~

Thank you very much for the critique zhangk :) Yes, I was not that good at rendering the time I did that and was testing if I can pull off doing digital work.. I'll outdo myself in my future works :)

One of those scenes where you feel like she had just got done kickin' your booty;
you tried to fight back in self defense and lost. as you lay there groaning, she reads your mind.
"you're not the bad guy", her anger is clear. this wasn't bad intelligence, this is a set up.

so why were you her target? there is more to this plot than either of you know...

I think your coloring of this is the best I've seen so far. I love the original Psylocke outfit in the form of the black hard disciplined classic ninja get up with the purple sash flying in the wind to confirm her style. She stands in the realm of a mystic void with her psychic and steel blades locked, cocked, and ready for any moments notice of a sudden attack to defend against. She's got blood on her showing that she's already been through a battle. Her eyes gazing ever so fierce piercing the soul of the one whom she would dare to commit to the first strike. Dare not to attack her. I used your pic for a short story of mine. The link leads back to you:
