They're fancy Turbocharged Quad-Ion Propulsion devices.

Can't you tell from the little circle thingies on the inside? I mean, they're even marked 'I' for IonTech on the plates.

EDIT: They open a quasi-gravity rift in the intersection of the blades and hold the whole suit up from there. Real easy barrel rolls with that model.

More contrast, your colors look a bit dirty Razz

I'm not sure what dirty means, can you elaborate?

You have mostly blue hue colors on your character, and a blue background, there is not much contrast, and they are dark, try to have some pure light colors, make your character stand out more. Make a Daylight background so your robot character looks shiny, and clean.


EDIT: MORE: Also, don't eyeball your colors, you don't need to suffer through it.

Find an image of a good daylight scene, with good bright colors, and color pick it, and use it as your pallete.

Look at the characters? See how sharp they look? Their colors are very good in contrast, and they don't look muddy.

I just don't know what colors go together, and I've always been shy of using bright colors, but I'll try to fix it up a bit later.

Shy?....what?

I just don't like using them, but I'm trying to get over it

You definitely need to, if you want to make a living out of what you do.

Client: Hi, I want a bright summer day landscape drawing.

BeDa: Sorry, I only do night scenes.

Client: Facepalm*

Ummm... ok... I definitely made it brighter, far too much IMO, but what do I know.
Any better (besides the horrible color leaks)? At all? Because to me it looks like a coloring book image. -__-

Red & Green... Tricky color combination if you ask me as a MoCer. (legos ;D )

In Legos it hardly goes together fine. It seems fine to me here though. But I wouldn't trust me since I like every drawing that is better then my drawing... Wich is near every drawing XD

To be honest, I liked the darker version of this one. Made the light areas 'POP'.

Thats why I hate bright colors, I don't know how/where to use them -__-

Once again, Nik takes the words right outta my mouth.

And it's more of a matter of just feeling where each color goes. Llet the colors, tone, and brightness etc. just fall where you feel it needs to and when. Ya gotta kinda find a happy medium and balance between it all.

EDIT: By that, I mean if you wanna give the image a darker feel, stick to the low toned colors, but don't be afraid to give it a bit of brightness here and there. The contrast makes things stand out, like Nik acknowledged.

Think of the rainbow. Best bet: Colors either right next to each other, for matchy-matchy sort of things, or every other one. Every third: Nope.avi, and 4th away, only for contrasting.

You have just seen Artimies7's quicky color guide for dummies. Not that I ever use it, but it sounds right.

Feel free to label me a troll and a n00b, 'cause I think it's probably wrong.

Don't eyeball your colors, here is a great picture with enough of tones for you to start color picking, don't worry about the copyright, since it never applies to color picking.

Open 2 photoshops, half each, and try repainting your robot.

Also, I don't know what you are missing, but I assume you are using either the Burn/Dodge tool and a soft brush?

No, I never use burn/dodge, but I used to a while ago.

So do you mean I should use the colors from the picture to paint the robot or the background?

Also, how do you open two side by side?

Click and drag the small tab which I squared with a red box.

And yes, use the colors from the picture, if you want to have heavy contrast, use the sky colors for the helmet, and use the mountain front for the armor, that way, after you layed out the initial colors, you can just use black and white on 10 to 40% opacity, and lighten the areas up or make them darker with black.

Something I've been doing is taking this (below) and adding color on another layer. Should I be starting with color?

What setup are you using? (Essentials/Design/???)

And when I dragged it, it only opened it in another window, and when I dragged the file icon it just opened it as another layer, is that what you meant?
