Into the Light in Color

Postby phastings » Mon Jan 20, 2014 2:06 am

I was kinda glad when they started releasing the DkS comic digitally in black & white because it struck that I could just fill in the color myself. It actually started turning out better than I thought it would, so I will try and color the whole thing or depending on each pages availability in 1337x2048 resolution. I am by no means a pro or skilled with computer graphics, but I love this game and I guess I know my way around photoshop enough to tackle it (however, if they release this in full color I will feel like an a$$) haha

I will try and compete a couple pages a week. I hope you all enjoy!
Feel free to leave me suggestions or critiques, I will need them lol.

Wow. That looks very impressive. I was expecting something that would look rather amateur, but that looks seriously legit.

thanks dudes! I am trying to catch up and have 3 pages completed and posted so far. nightsmoke, you should practice with graphic programs; there are some good free ones out there. I figure I can manage 2 a week until the game's release, but if more come after, it may slow to a crawl because you know why haha. But im having fun so I will compete this project, no doubt

Well I got another page up. It is not my favorite because its the 3rd page with the same color-scheme and was starting to run-on, but im glad to me moving on to what appears to be a grouping of spirits watching saulden the crestfallen (who all look like they could use a nice transparent, faint-blue glow) and a rather gruesome encounter w/ a duel-wielding executioner (or whatever we have collectively agreed upon to call the beastie at this point;)

I'm not sure what the deal is, but the resolution on the ones I have done so far has been a rather massive 1337x2048, as opposed to the official Namco facebook releasing them in 627x960 pixels...

It makes a HUGE difference using the former, which allows a higher level of detail (more than double the pixels). The site I have found these on (up to page 6..) is a spanish site:

spanish videogame website

I will keep an eye out for these elusive high-quality images. I hope to keep rolling these out as promised :cheers:
