How long does it take to do these things? I realize you say you "only" colored these pics, but I mean... they all seem to blend in so seamlessly, the lighting and detail all preserved, must take ages. Especially when you're first starting, do you just pick a spot and go at it, since I'd imagine having a massive scene like this staring at you in black and white must be really intimidating, no?

Thanks for the comment! The seamless look comes from the color balance tool in Photoshop. The first thing I do when coloring is do up the background colors first, which determine the overall palette and feel of the piece far more than the individual colors of the various characters.

The lighting and detail are kept intact because I add color layers on top of the original piece, rather than coloring on the original itself. Since it's on a layer system I can erase the points where there's too much color overlapping on characters where it shouldn't be. I then merge all those layers when it comes time for color correction. This piece was pretty easy because the resolution is average, on a high res piece with a lot of elements going on, it can be a little exhausting, like any piece by Adrian Smith.

Excellent!
I have some templar myself, the only thing I don't like about the models is that they're not as pimped out with shiny bits and scripture like in all the awesome pictures like these.
