This thread is to post Line Art Drawings be it your work or royalty images to be colored and for colorists to post their finished works for the artists.

You don't need to be s skilled artist/colorist to join in! The intention of this thread is to show the art abilities of everyone in this forum. You are free to use whatever you have at your disposal be it colored pencils, crayons, paint, markers, to digital art programs such as photoshop and MS Paint.

There are no limitations so if someone has done an image and remember that this is the place to be if you want to practice your skills.

1.) POST ONLY ARTWORK THAT IS YOUR OWN OR FROM A ROYALTY FREE/FAIR USE SOURCE UNLESS YOU HAVE ACTUAL PERMISSION FROM ARTIST!! Do not post lineart that you "found" on Deviant Art or some art gallery site. Coloring blanks are okay as those are for everyone to use and color if kept with in certain guidelines. I like pulling line arts of deviant art to practice my chops as a digital colorist myself. But if you actually color and post someone else's art work somewhere without their consent is never a good idea.

2.) When using quotes to replying to posts, please put images in a spoilers box or simply render the image into a link. It's annoying to scroll past 6 or 7 posts of the same image. Putting them in a spoiler box or just linking the image won't clog thread.

3.) Post a limit of two images per post. It's fun to show off your work, but again it gets annoying to see a bunch of images in one post. So limit your posts to two images or put images on a linked gallery page.

4.) Do not demand that your work be colored. Just because no one has colored the image you have posted, doesn't mean no one cares about it. But posting images in succession is bothersome to people. If you have a numerous images, put two up and wait a few posts or before posting another two. Or simply upload your line art to gallery so people can peruse what you have to offer.

5.)Critiques are better the criticisms. Artists need feed back because it lets them know where they need to improve. But it's one thing to offer friendly advice or suggestions, and another to completely degrade and belittle something someone has put time and energy into. It's not only rude, it's hurtful and it will prevent that person about posting their artwork anywhere.

6.) If you have a huge image put a spoiler tag around the image, link url, or thumbnail of image.

Due to the Christmas season, here is an a line art image I've colored for a contest at Dover Publications.


And here's the royalty free line art image I used

Oh that's a good idea, I actually got some people to do this for me at an art demo. I gave them my lines and they coloured, they had a blast! It was my response to those who said they couldn't draw, see you can always express yourself with colour :)

This is an old piece, it's fairly basic but you can still have fun with it. I originally coloured him in Spider-man's suit for a laugh. So go nuts!

P.S I like what you did with the colours on that piece, really interesting textures.
