#32 - Train Sounds - in One: Rush Delivery
Ah the drama never ceases in this house
The colors were tough to figure out for this scene. I kept trying the warm tones for the room, but it just wasn't gelling. Cool colors are the more obvious choice for exam rooms, so no wonder it wasn't looking right. It ended up really playing to the tonality of the next few pages.
Except for pages 14-17, every page so far shares the same six colors (cream, orange, brown, pale blue, blue, dark blue) + black and white. Figuring out how to get a certain atmosphere while maintaining clarity and balance within those constraints has been a huge learning experience! I'll be a little more flexible from scene to scene going into the next chapter, but it's going to be better for having done this first.
Weekly updates are back! See you next Monday :D
I enjoyed he write up about your palette. Super impressed at how much mileage you get with the limitations!!

I'm as surprised as anyone! My intentions were to do this comic in grayscale-- I did the first few in halftones. Then I swapped the tones for solid colors, and, well... it snowballed from there.
