The Idiot's Mask, Color version by ScarletteDiscord The Idiot's Mask, Color version by ScarletteDiscord
I've been wanting to color this sketch for a while since I felt it would lend itself well as a practice in dramatic atmosphere : lots of shadows, focused lighting, etc. With this I was really trying to push myself not to be afraid adding shadow; I sometimes find when working in color that I tend to not have a set light source and put shadows kinda wherever. So hopefully I've stepped in the right direction with this one :)

Enough with my artistic ramblings, lol, I hope ya'll enjoy it all the same. Here's the original for those of you not familiar [link]

Also a question: I was considering doing some lineart for people to color for like, you know, funsies...would anyone want to if I put some up? Let me know cause I like to see what you guys come with :)

I totally agree with this picture! I always saw Alfred as a very depressed and sad character on the inside, but a happy and animated character on the outside! :D

Thanks ^^

It's true that a lot of us see him like this. He just can't be that happy and ignorant knowing what his people and country are going through.

Besides, there's nothing wrong with an angsty Alfred pic every now and then.

Wow. This picture is really appealling. I like all the implied ideas that go along with it. Very deep.

It kinda reflects my head canon about him in a way and was also influenced by some fanfics I'd read that had the same theme of him masking his true self, usually to protect himself and others.

Oh gosh this feeds my head cannon of Al like no tomorrow.

And the coloring is very well done, especially the shading.
