coloring done in adobe illustrator.
in the past i used photoshop to color my sketches. mainly cause i wasn't too sure which software would be best, since both are equally suited for the task. this is the first mecha i've done in illustrator (which exception of the Bohgon [brim star folder].)
illustrator did few things better than photoshop, and that was the Stroke/outlines that would be turned on and off at will, and i could play with the vector lines to my heart content. plus the gradient tool is pretty cool now =J, much better than it ever was in the past.
speaking of the past, here's what the rough draft looked like: [link]
there's also a color variation page: [link]
