Mars

I started this drawing with the intention of coloring it using different shades of only one color. It didn't quite turn out that way. Why? Because I SUPER DUPER SUCK at coloring. Then I thought I would just try to really make the fire stand out and cast dark shadows on her. That didn't happen either. Why? Because I SUPER DUPER SUCK at coloring. Prismacolor markers are hard. Or may be I just SUPER DUPER SUCK at coloring.

Looks pretty good to me! You know, I did once have to do a painting of a fire demon thing against a white background - much easier to do that against a medium value/tone background, but the white was specific art direction.

Maybe a toned background would help out, it's tough to do color against blazing white like that.

Fire
Smoke, she is a rising fire
Oh, smoke on the horizon

Smokestack lightning

Burnin' out

Come on and burn it.

I say send down fire to me

Fire woman, you're to blame...

Sailor goodness! I like her "I'm about to kick flaming butt" expression on her face.

Color is hard... there's no undo for prismacolors last time I checked.

First, you're a bad ass. Second, I feel your pain. But believe it or not, that coloring job is really good.
