Because I am... anal like that... I spent the morning updating the SP movie colors for Nuka, Vitani and Kovu. I was pretty sure on my edits for both Zira and Kiara, so I didn't play with those all that much (just enough to assure myself that they stayed pretty consistent for a couple of scenes). Kovu I was also fairly
sure of, so I only messed with him a bit -- enough to end up editing him only slightly. But Nuka and Vitani appear in such wonky-lighting scenes for the whole movie that I was very unsure of them still. So I went back and edited a LOT of shots from as many scenes as possible, then roughly took the "average" result from all of them to make my "final" composite for their TLK movie colors.
*Nuka stayed fairly consistent to what I had gotten for him previously, but he did get richer in color. I also -- in doing this -- noticed for the first time (HOW UNOBSERVANT OF ME! FOR SHAME!) that Nuka has the SAME inner ear stripe as Zira does. That darker color. I always thought it was just mane hair in his ears, but it's her stripe! HOW COOL IS THAT. I'm such a blind dummy! (Probably I'm the only one who FAILED to spot that by now... DUR). But! Now he has beautiful -- and I feel, very accurate
-- TLK movie colors! WHEE!
*Vitani was the most 'off' of my edits. My previous edit with her used only 2 screencaps, both from the SAME scene, and perhaps this is why it was not as... close... as it could have been. This time around, I went to more scenes, more shots, and did my magic. I then took the 'average' for the results for all those edits, and made a composite of them. This is how she now turns out, and she feels much better to me. I also see this as more accurate
than what I had previously.
As a note to those who ask for such things -- unlike last time, I will not be providing the edited shots I used. If this means you shun these colors, so be it. I do not have any desire to upload so many pictures to my Photobucket account, and you have seen how I do my work before this, so by now you either feel you can trust my work, or you can't. Whichever works for you. And as always, it is up to you if you use these colors for your own work, or not. Maybe you get something different -- I don't honestly care. This is what I got. XD I certainly won't be butthurt if you prefer the older colors I did for her. Or neither, and you just use what SP showed. I DOESN'T MIND ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ^^+As before: the upper row are the NEW "movie colors" and below are the colors for those characters as presented in SP+
