Round two! Keeping the psychedelic colors (sorry Greg), but I fixed a couple of parts. I got rid of the gradient and decided to go with flat blocks for their clothes and skin- works much better with the inks, I think. I study a lot of Dave Stewart’s work, especially on Hellboy, he’s a big inspiration for me. I also tweaked the saturation and value of the fog behind the characters, as well as the bridge and the mountains. I wanted to more effectively lead the eye around the page in a clock-wise fashion; for that same reason, I also added the dark stripe to the front character’s vest to stop the eye and lead it to the hand and the down-ward sloping banner.
