Penguin Family Colored Up

Here is the colored version of the Penguin Family Ice Skating. I had a lot of fun on this one and there were a bunch of different stages! Click on the above image for a much cleaner and larger image. (Less pixelly(sp?))

Below is a link to an animation that kinda takes you through the process. From sketch all the way to full colors. ALl done in Photoshop. The only thing this revealed to me is that I really have no process. LOL! I'm always amazed when someone posts a tutorial online and it's neat to see how organized and thought out their process is. The only thing that I learned about myself from doing this is that I have NONE!! LOL! Hopefully that'll improve now that I am paying attention to it.

Having a process seems to allow others to attack their images with speed and clarity. That is something I would imagine is very helpful when running up against a deadline. I'm also going to really start timing myself so that I have a more accurate gauge of how long it takes me to complete an image depending on the complexity and familiarity of process being used.

Here's the link to the animation.

Also, I should have a website by the end of the weekend, hopefully. It'll be at When I'm done I would love for you guys to come check it out and tell me what you think. Troubleshoot it and make sure everything works and views properly! Thanks again!! :)
