++Candy Man++ - Color by Gypsy-Rae ++Candy Man++ - Color by Gypsy-Rae
For the love of god full view would ya!!! :XD: There are so many things in there that i know you can't see from just the preview! Not to mention I can guarantee that at least a few of you missed several details in the uncolored version of this that should now show up much better:).

........And i certainly hope somebody out there appreciates this cuz if you don't......:shakefist:

I admit it, i'm not the best colorer in the world, never will be for that matter, but i worked my ass off working this thing up, including working through it with a major migrane and blowing off a geometry test....... yea.... i'm pretty damn sure i bombed that stupid thing.....

I do like the sepia toned version of this as it always makes me think of some old storybook picture you might find littering the pages of an old fairytale book, but i'm pretty fond of this one too..... it's so durn Colorful!!! XD And you can see all them horrible eyeballs and mouths on the tree...... which might i add scares the hell outta me 0____o. It freaked me out uncolored but now... *shivers*, Oh and just so you know, i counted 12 'faces' on the tree but if you turn the picture upside down about 8 more faces will show up.....which is nothing more than a useless fact^^;. Plus they're pretty hard to find since you don't know wut i consider a 'face' and wut i don't *shrugs*, so don't hurt yerself looking!

Ya'know, the only reason i colored this pic is because i wanted to color Willy's outfit, which i'm just in lurv with despite the clash of colors, but when yer name happens to be 'Willy Wonka' i think you can get away with something like that=D.

I'm starting to grow quite fond of this guy so he'll be showing again sometime soon=D, besides i just love drawing an 'Evil Wonka'...... it's fun!! XD And seeing as to how i just can't bring myself to 'evilfy' the new Willy Wonka...... he does the trick!! X3.

.......damn...it's late.....AGAIN!! *bangs head on keyboard* I *bang* need *bang* rest! *bang*
...i need to learn how to stop writing such long descriptions.....-___-..... *falls out of chair fast asleep*

I remember reading the fic that went along with this picture...awesome work! You're style is very unique, and slightly creepy :D ~favs~ This had to have taken a very long time, and the picture shows how much effort you put into it ~thumbes way way up~ I love it ^^

What? I love your descriptions. I think most people don't give a thorough enough desription on their art.

Anywho... How in the candy-coated heavens do you draw like this!? :XD: I could never do anything this intricate. The "faces" in the tree are quite creepy. If you walked through this particular forest, it's as if every step you take would be closely watched and scrutinized. :nod: One thing's for sure though, not everything in this forest is eatable. ;)

I love the blueberry in the background. :lmao: And the border is quite delicious looking. I feel that both this brightly colored version and the the sepia storybook version are nicely realized.

Weeeell lucky(or is it unlucky??) for you and everyone else i don't think i'll EVER be able to stop writing such loooong descriptions. I can't keep anything simple for the life of me, plus i like *trying* to at least make someone laugh at my descritions.....tho they're really just laughin at me and my stupidity if they do laugh. XB

^^;
I'll tell you how in the candy-coated heavens i draw like it do!!
....VERY VERY CAREFULLY!! X3
It's all about being patient i suppose and making sure everything 'works'. Drawing this thing gave me QUITE a hard time....i wanted to kill it....:stab:

Oh....and i wouldn't suggest eating ANYTHING in this place...*shifty eyes*....i don't trust it..... O___o

See, I can't draw like this because I lack one major artistic ingredient... patience. I have many unfinished drawings in my journal. I can never seem to start detailing a piece. *sigh* Ah well, I keep trying anyway.

But enough of my mumblings. You're definitely succeeding on making me laugh. :XD: I'm not laughing at you, I'm laughing with you. :aww: And I'm looking forward to more lengthy descriptions from you. :thumbsup: :D

the images is a little too blended, if you know what i mean. A bit flat. Perhaps a black outline is in order? and maybe a few shadows to give it a little bit of a realistic feel. On the other hand, this must have taken AGES! the amount of detail put into it is impressive, so i salute you!

willy wonka is totally awesome, and he has a sort of twisted side which you depict well. Definately draw him summore :nod:

Hmmm something tells me he would sigh, grab himself an axe and then proceed to run after me screaming and yelling at me for doing this.....and being such a huge fan of the new 'Willy Wonka':omg:
.....or mebbe he'd be flattered that there are still fans of the old 'Willy Wonka' out there......nah. I still think he'd find an axe.....

I remember reading about how he was annoyed that Burton was filming "Charlie and the chocolate factory" with Johnny Depp, accusing them of "remaking" the film he did in the 1970's and the character he played. Then he eventually retracted what he said and PRAISED Depp for being chosen to play Wonka...

I personally think Gene has some issues, the poor man. Fame can do that to you, it seems.

Gypsy-Rae Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
oh yea, i read that too, i have the magazine right here on my table even. I thought it was quite a shame that Gene was so defensive about the movie being done again, tho we all know it wasn't a remake since its nothing like the original so Nuh!! I thought it would have been so neat to have had Gene play some role in the new movie, nothing big, just a small part but i knew THAT wasn't gonna happen once i read about him being annoyed about the new film.

Tho i didn't know that he retracted wut he said and actually did a bit of PRAISING for the new version. Shock to me! Issues or not at least the man 'saw the light' and realised the new movie wasn't some carbon copy flop with bad choice in actors.......damn fame.....:shakefist:

beautiful! My only advice would have been to put some higher contrast in the greens----add more shadows, if you know what I mean. Otherwise, the image looks a bit flat and stuff blends together. Other than that, it's a gorgeous peice!

Hopefully i can fix it up later if i get the time! Thank you so much for the advice!!:hug: I'll do my damndest to do that next time:aww:

hmm....ps......well, in that case, I've got two great links for you.
[link]
^By an artist I admire, an awesome tut on coloring in PS. Gives really good advice on separating your lineart from the white background so you can color under it. I refer to it a lot.
and this one:
[link]
Because it takes EVERYTHING you need to know about color, light, coloring, shading and shadows and squishes it into one tut that covers everything an artist needs to know. And the guy is a fantasy artist, so he's on our side.....
Hope that helps!
