Colored image based on line art drawn and inked by the talented and awesome 0ro AKA shin0r0z ([link]

Why am I coloring lines from an artist like 0ro who's way better than me? Well, he offered the .PSD file of the inks to anyone who felt like finishing it, so naturally I jumped at the offer and decided I'd take a crack at it. After a weekend of ditzing around with it, this is what I came up with.
It's one of my first times working on characters that actually have an impressive muscle tone, so I think I learned a lot. Most of my stuff has been more cartoony / simplistic body tone, and figure drawing is probably my biggest weakness right now, so I'm grateful for the chance to look at, study, and work with the full size original lines to something like this.
- In the process of working on this, I turned a 7.21 megabyte .PSD file into a 97.8 megabye .PSD. I like layers.
- I drank a lot of amaretto while I was working on this. OMG DELICIOUS. Apricot liquor is best liquor!
- I'm out of particularly fun facts, but I feel like a list really should be at least three items long, otherwise it probably wasn't worth creating a list, and I'm in too deep to turn around now, dammit!
