Rich Girl by Robaato Rich Girl by Robaato
Been doing some digital painting practice in my downtime.

What I learned so far: I SUCK!

For real though, I need to teach myself to be organic, I'm still thinking too clean.

Decided to interpret my version of Veronica from Archie. (She was my fave as a kid.) Might go thru the whole main cast with these practice sessions, heh.

Veronica Archie Comics

TOOLS: PhotoshopCS4/Cintiq21UX
MUSIC: No Mercy - T.I. (Album)
TIME: 1hr45mins.

how did you make those effects with the colors? i see a lot of people doing it, where there's a type of photographic-gamma-hue-thingy on the line art... i'm terrible at explaining it but hopefully you know what I'm talking about...

I've been working on this style for the last couple of weeks. I think i've been doing decently x) And i think u are going in the right way. Her shirt looks awesome. What i think u are missing is some outlines. But the lineart u make before the coloring but the one u make during the coloring using this technique. There are a few videos that helped me get started with this. If you want i can link you to them, they are totally awesome x)

I did paint outlines: I refined the edges. I don't want to have any use of line in these painted techs.

O well, then if that's what u went for then im pretty sure u managed to achieve the technique.

Only thing i'd suggest, try to blend more the colors and hihglights. Other than that looks totally awesome.

Keep it bro, u are an inspiration to me :)

You don't need to change anything. This coloring works perfectly with your drawing style. You understand how light and shadow works in terms of anatomy(something I need to work on) and that really is the biggest hurdle in digital coloring. No matter if it is heavily rendered or cell-shaded. I think picture owns BTW.

Yeah, right now it looks a lot like your non-paints.

But if you can nail that magical painting technique thing, I'm sure the stuff'll be ridiculously awesome.

Betty was always the one that you could see being your girlfriend/wife that you could take home to mama...Veronica was the one that you could see being a "friend with benefits" that likes to party!!! :strip: If they were to combine Betty's personality with Veronica's looks, they they would have the perfect woman! :XD:

Nice work here...hope that you at least do Betty, Midge, and Cherry! :love:

Oh I love this, great color and form, a real nice painting cool title by the way. It makes me think of Rich Girl by Hall and Oats here is the [link] to the song on youtube.
BTW I love archie comics, I really like the weird mysteries, but i can never find them that often. I did score the animated series. >.O
I like Veronica as well, but I think Betty would show more affection. I mean easy money creates all sorts of problems. So there might be more tensions, but She is cuter than Betty... All i know Archie should just pick one already..

Hey, now, don't be so hard on yourself! But I do have the same problem. I think we've just been doing cell-shading for too long...
Anyway, sweet piece! I was a big fan of the Archie comic when I was a kid ^^

It was a little Tv show that started in 1999. It was like a supernatural cartoon comedy series. It was really Good. You Should do a digital painting a Jughead XD. I don't know how a digital painting is supposed to look but this one of veronica is pretty awesome.
