Talking My White Lantern/Rainbow Lantern Drawing

ok, this was a blast to do, i made my own rainbow lantern, or white lantern, which ever u prefer, and colored it.

i followed the ROY G BIV battern, u can see how it starts at his right glove and goes down, red orange and yellow, then green on his chest, then blue indigo and violet on his left glove, im really happy with the outcome, and wanna know what u all think!

I dont think there should be any black on him personally. Like maybe fill in all the black spots with Green since Green is the center of the spectrum or something.

But its a fantastic job man. You took what I thought was a shitty idea and turned it into something I'd actually like to see more of

lol thx, im thinkin about sending it to DC just for kicks

and i see ur point about the no black thing, but i thought white and black with shades of the rainbow equally all over it would look really cool.
white and green wouldnt look as good side by side IMO,
thx though!

No problemo. I understand the color scheme and that green probably wouldnt look as good, but I just thought it didnt seem right to have black on a white lantern

very nice; though the gradient overlay doesn't really match up w/ the symbols (there looks like green smoke coming from the violet emblem, etc). maybe section off the piece, and use differing gradients for the color. I'd also like the idea of getting away from the black; try using a color burn for the shadowing, and maybe an inner glow filter to give more of a "power within" kind of feel. All in all, a really cool concept and a good start man

Favourite one you've done.
If that's how it happens I'd be okay.

aagh, i actually loved how the gradient matched up, but ur right, on the violet/green part, i kinda wanted it to just be the right order, the ROY on the top, then the G on the chest, then the BIV on the bottom.

to be honest, this was my first time using gradient so im not very experienced with it xD

i tried the colorburn on the shadows, but it didnt look right :/
looked fake.
i always love black on lanterns to, its hard to get away from, it looks so slick xD

thx for the comment!

I think it's awesome. Probably cooler than what we'll actually see.

But shouldn't the colours on the right leg be the same as the right arm? Actually, the colours are off from the mid-section down. Did you apply a vertical rainbow to the thing? The left hand Sapphire is giving off green, instead of pink.

Oh...I was wondering: What program do you use to make all of this? And how do you make that fire effect, with all the different colors? (I'm trying to learn, just like you told me).

thx! [/QUOTE]

no problem! It just looked, to me, like you had the color scheme going left to right, not top to bottom; which then conflicts w/ the gradient going top/bottom. This also conflicts on the legs as well; as if the color scheme was fading up/down, then the red would come from the head, not the right arm, you know? For an easy fix, just run your gradient overlay horizontal. However, I think actually lassoing various pieces of smoke, and localizing a 2/color gradient may, in the end, look more "complete"; though take some more time.

as far as the shadows, I know what you mean about color burn. My best suggestions there are to either:
-lower the opacity of both the layer and the brush, and layer the burn
-use the burn tool over a color burn layer
-(best suggestion) set layer to darken/multiply, lower opacity, and use a multiply brush w/ a low opacity w/ multiple "coats" to get the desired shadowing effect.

not trying to nit-pick, just offering advice from experience is all. In total, I think it's an amazing image and a really great concept. You've taken it pretty far as is (I'm impressed with the smoke rendering). Have you considered getting away from Elements and using Photoshop proper? Feel free to PM me w/ any questions or issues you may run into (I do freelance Photoshop work as a part-time job). Great work, keep it up!

If I ever wanted a White Lantern, that's how I'd want it done.
