Clean-up and Coloring only! (Ben Reynolds' Character Design)

As I mentioned in the previous post, I've been doing a lot of coloring the past few weeks. I did a few character designs (the kids) for the film we're currently working on and since I had a little extra time, I decided to throw some color on. They liked it so much that they now put me in charge of final touch-up and coloring of all the characters. Since I don't have much experience with coloring, I found this to be a perfect opportunity for me to get some training while getting paid;).
All rough character designs (left) in this post is done by buddy and co-worker Ben Reynolds of Canadia.

I like how you've improved on the designs, esp. the carriage-bike thing. Many improvements there! Very nicely done Hans! Congratulations on the new responsibilities! The tatters on the sleeves and hem of the middle-eastern guy was a great touch too. It's in the details- I says. Thanks for showing us your work. I am continually impressed.
