    Hey, guys. I know some of you out there are great inkers and are willing to help, so I wanted to ask around here for some support. I was approached by someone on Deviantart looking to have their piece colored. I want to help out, but I don't have time to ink this due to pressing responsibilities. So, it would be great if someone could ink this for me so that I can color it as a birthday gift:

    Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help! Once you're finished, please link the hi-res version here or just send it to my email.

    Wow, that's a pretty awesome job. I can never get my pencils to look like that playing with the brightness and contrast settings.

    O i guess that puts it into perspective. As far as the picture goes though, the arm still seems a little weird =P

    ok further to the PM...

    step 1: this first image is a result of 'desaturate' followed by 'remove noise' followed by 'despeckle':

    NOTE thumbnail is bust, but the full image is still there, just click:

    [​IMG]

    step 2: then this second image is the result of turning the contrast up:

    [​IMG]

    step 3: then did 'replace colour', selecting a few of the darker greys and turning the lightness down on them:

    [​IMG]

    step 4: then finally, manually painting over the remainig sketchy bits and applying a guassian blur to get rid of jaggies then a couple fo sharpens to un-blur it:

    Either the first or the last one are my favorites. You did a really good job on those. The first one because it looks pencil sketched which is really kool. Then the last one kicks ass since like the picture is very clean and crisp.
