Continuing colour work on the first page of our illustrated post apocalyptic Canadian short story.
Here’s Elliot, the protagonist. I’m just getting ready to do some broad shading and colour adjustments, so I load up an adjustment layer for hue/saturation, and I end up with the happy accident below.
Suddenly, we’re looking at Elliot through rose-tinted lenses. I love this sort of faded red-pink. I might use it as the main palette of another image. Reducing the palette in this way’s made it clear to me that I need to adjust the values in Elliot’s palette… I should probably go for a bit more contrast between his shirt and skin. Hopefully that’ll make it more pleasing to the eye.
