A Little Applied Design and Color Theory
I’m finding the need to solve problems created by the limited color palette. I try to assign a unique subset of the color palette to each character. But with new character designs and only twelve base colors, this has gotten increasingly problematic. For example, here’s those three down-and-out Belarusians flatted in the strict 12-color palette:
From there, I had to consider the cohesion of their design on two levels: as individual characters and as a group. The staging was so complex that twelve colors weren’t enough. To keep individual characters cohesive, I adjusted the value and chroma, but not the hue, of certain areas:
Kickstarter – Final Week
I’m elated at the response to the Kickstarter campaign to print the first 50 comics in a book. We’ve surpassed not only our funding goal, but the first two stretch goals. This means I can afford to print the book in a beautiful clothbound edition.
As of this posting, there are five days left in the campaign.
There’s still time to pledge! After the campaign is over, the books and some of the incentives will be available for sale on the website. But if you pledge at the $20 level, you will actually be getting a copy of the book at below the future website price.
