Girl video. Now in Colour!

Below is a timelapse video of the girl pic coloured. The quality's not the greatest but I'm learning as I go, so hopefully future attempts will be better. I was having too many problems with Google Video, so here's my results through YouTube.

To the left you can see the finished version.

Cool stuff. I have plenty of room on my website. If you want to send me the video, I can put it on a hidden link inside of my website. Just email me and let me know.

Did you try google's own video upload utility? (here) it'll let you upload massive video files(google recommend using it if your file is over 100Mb)

Sandra- Hey, thanks! Glad you like it.

Henry- Thanks for the offer. But my problem is, with the video as is, many people won't be able to view it because of the format. When I upload to Google it converts it to a format which everyone can view. So I need to find another place that does that.

PJ- Yeah I tried, but it keeps knocking it back. I think it's because the frame rate is so low, and it doesn't meet their guidelines. The file's only 7mb.

Do you ever do any coloring on paper? If so, what technique do you use? Also, is there something out there better than colored pencils? I hate those things!

I hardly do any colouring on paper anymore. But if you don't like coloured pencils you could always try colour markers. Any good art stores should sell them.

I used to do all my early MAD covers with markers and coloured pencils. The ones I used were Pantone Tria markers (each pen has three different drawing tips). Unfortunatley they're not cheap. A starter set of 24 will cost you about $80-100 US. If you're interested buy one or two pens from an art store and have a play with them.

Alternatively, buy some artists gouache or acrylic paints. You can use these straight from the tubeas is or watered down for colour washes.
