    Didn't get any response from ToyArk so I'm reposting here.

    Hey guys, I'm working on this illustration for school and I need some advice. I had to take this sketch and ink and color it. I've got it all inked and am almost done coloring it, but I need a little feedback on the color scheme before I move on to lighting and shading.

    I'm an X-Men fan, but I'm not really into the comics so much. If it's not in the cartoons or movies or video games, I probably don't know much about it. So I'm just wondering what color scheme should I should be using? I'm pretty sure Scott's almost dead on. I'm mainly concern is whether Jean should be Light Phoenix(green) or Dark Phoenix(red) colors. I just swaped the blue and black on Scott in the second pic for fun. I know it's not correct.

    Also any other creative criticisms, suggestions, tips, comments, etc would be appreciated.

    Jean should be Dark Phoenix here. "Normal" green Phoenix has a smaller emblem on the chest enclosed in a black triangle that connects to her neck where as Dark Phoenix has the bigger emblem that covers most of her torso like it is here.

    Nice job on the coloring so far, though you might wanna try darkening the shade gradients so you'll get a starker contrast. I think it'll help make the bright color scheme you've got going "pop" more. ^_^

    Update: I added the final version to the original post. I'm pretty happy with it, but there's still some small things I may change.
