Ultimate Silver Samurai by BrianReber Ultimate Silver Samurai by BrianReber
This was done awhile back. Painted straight from Mark Brooks' (diablo2003) pencils. It's posted in his gallery as well, but since I'm the second half of the team I thought I'd throw it up in my gallery as well.

For an outfit with not much color in it you did an incredible job with lighting and depth. Great work!

This is an inspiring pic. Love the armor and the fact that it's silver.

Wow...that's some really complicated character design.

Coloring that in must've been a pain in the butt.

Well, the hard work obviously paid off. I bet you've got a poster of this hanging in some hottie's bedroom wall right now...

Indeed, a fine peace of work. But I would but some minor chain armor under the main silver one. I see he laready has some fur, so I guess you used that instand of chain armor. Still it looks very good.

What can I say that hasn't been said? I'm a fan of these great characters and try and capture them in my little sketches, but you take it to another level. I'd really appreciate to hear what you think of my little doodles. Keep up the great work!

fractalgrrl Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2005
Very striking! Straight into my favourites it goes.
yanimator Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005
both the drawing by mark and coloring by you is pretty darn sick! one of my favs in both your galleries. :+fav:
HippieKing Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005
Awesome work, I love it, great contrast between the red and the white, so effective!
I may be being slow but is this based on anything at all?
Sems very familiar!

oooooooo i love the shinyness (shininess? shinieness?! :confused: ) of the metal.
supastah Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005
hi , I have seen all your work here on devaint.. I would like to know how and what you use for the colouring.. FAV
garstu Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005
Great job, I love the texture of this piece and the luminance of the metal.
MystWilliams Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005   Writer
Wow, this is amazing. How long did it take you? How did you learn to colour like that?

I have been practicing in Photoshop, and i am just horrible at colouring my pencils. Do you have any tips or sites that could lead me in the right direction? Because i am desperate to learn and self-guided practice isnt seeming to do the trick.

Thanks so much, and you are extremely talented.

coalizion Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2005
Oh you are the colorist of this pic, really great job man.
Lunatiger Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2005
Your coloring is awesome. I wonder how you paint all the details in? Did you just do a trial an error coloring or did you really plan this out? It's inspiring really...
Nightcrawler108 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2005
That is one of the best Silver Samurai pic ever, you coloured it really well you should work for marvel, oh wait you do.
Aurora-Storm Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2005  Hobbyist Writer
The metalic shine is.. platinumesque. Lighting is impeccable, everything seems to be shadowed perfectly. It's awesome. :D

Who selected the colours for this piece, yourself?
