Gwyn-Ravens in Color by DeepChrome Gwyn-Ravens in Color by DeepChrome
I was bored earlier this evening, and decided to color up the previously black-and-white picture. I put some final details into their clothing in the style of the Tower and the Hive series' cover art.

I also added some color to the starfield along with some extra stars to improve visual interest in that upper left-hand corner that was feeling a little dead earlier.

Overall I'm pretty happy with how this all came out. :)

I love the Tower and the Hive series, even though I've only gotten as far as Damia's Children. Your fanart for the series is spectacular!

my, what large eyes they have!

just a nit pick!
it looks like you could have spent a little bit more time smoothing their faces down a bit. the color differences in some brush strokes are really noticeable in the full view

Yeah, huge improvement in color. :nod: Plus I fixed the value issue with the skin--which was a little too light on all three of them.
