This is the colored version of Lacy Shadows that was drawn by Zet13 that I commissioned of him. It was a while ago when he was running what was called a "Toon Commission sale". The premise of which is that anyone wanting to commission him could only choose characters from "western animations", so anime, video games and live action was out. And given how lengthy my own list of ideas was, I knew that I had something in there that would fit the bill and here it was: Lacey Shadows from "The Modifyers".
With this picture I did a couple of experiments in terms of the coloring process, namely with the clothes, underneath each clothing item I added a unique shadow layer for that one item at a layer opacity level of 25% and filled it with black. This in turn gave it a transparent shadow appearance but when combined with other shadow layers that had a similar opacity setting it gave that look of shadow layering where things get darker when shadows are laying on top of other shadows.
For the background, I had to refer to both the original and the Zone-archives version for inspiration. And admittedly I borrowed a design from one of them. 1000 points to whoever can figure out which scene. But the idea is that I needed it to have that "fabulous" or "swingin' sixties" look to it and this was the best that could be done given the abilities I have.
Note: All Characters depicted here are 18 years of age or older.
