Hi I recently started drawing again after a lot of years and now that i have the equipment to do it digitally i can also fill the white void between the lines but... for the first real try i have some issues choosing good colors.
attached you will find the pencil drawing, i have it inked already (and fixed some of the stuff i didn't like in this one). anyway i want to go for a demonish kinda not from this world look. And a main blackish look would be boring. Have you guys any suggestions, please?

Hehe, nice work. My mind instantly goes to pus yellow, with green tinges and other colours of decay and infection. I have just been playing Dead Space, though, where you're basically fighting corrupted rotten corpses for the entire game, so I'm sure that's affected me.

I've had the same trouble with colouring; I've always been a biro drawer, and once I got an art tablet I was completely overwhelmed by the vast palette suddenly available. To the point where I think it's been a year since I last plugged it in! It's a really alien concept bringing colour to something I conceived as a line drawing. I do wonder if maybe it's just a sign that I didn't conceive it enough.
