Dora + Boots : Colored by SRSobotka Dora + Boots : Colored by SRSobotka
Kudos to :iconwardog-zero: for his kickin' lineart!

Granted, I'm not a usual watcher of the original "Dora the Explorer"... but I have to admit, when I saw the line art that Steven did I just knew I had to take a crack at coloring it.

This one was a challenge, since I had to color Adult Dora and Boots on their own group of layers in Photoshop. Still, I think this is one of the better attempts at coloring I've done so far. What do you think?

Btw, I liked this result so much, I tinkered with some graphics from the show to produce a wallpaper for my desktop. I'm not sure about DA's policies with graphics taken from Google seaches, so I'm keeping the wallpaper off-site at my photobucket page: [link]

Much thanks to Steven for sharing his incredible work! Hope you like my take on Dora! :D


Original Art by Steven Arroyo
Coloring by Me
Done in Photoshop 7

Nope, I figure Steven (wardogzero) just decided Boots should remain cute and fuzzy. ^_^

I wish I could say it was my "style", but all I can claim is that I did the coloring on this, and nothing more. ^_^ Kudos go to the original artist, Steven Arroyo, for drawing a very sexy Dora. ^_^

Thanks for your comment, though. ^_^

Wardog-zero has a reference to someone else who colored his lineart, but I think your's is much better. Dimensional shading.

woohoo, Dora's grown up a bit. I love it. Seems a very plausible extrapolation of the Sat. Morning person. Boots is one lucky primate. I think I'll pay attention more when she's on, now.

heh, i'm really drawn to the cute spots of colour on her cheeks for some reason...

i think, so long as it's personal use for the desktop itself, they have no problem with it... i haven't had anything come up for any of my screenshots. :shrug: pretty much so long as you're not posting the desktop image claiming it as your own art.
