Just 4 fun :D


While the greys of winter are passing by we start to see saturated colors coming back to life. Which is great, because thats what this contest is all about. Getting color into you comics or drawings! Your challenge is to colorize a (maybe self drawn) comic or painting! I’ve done this in the example image which was drawn by a friend of mine (I can’t draw cool / good looking stuff myself :-/). The decision what kind of line painting you want to put color in relies totally on you. Have fun ;)
