This is the first in a long time I have given color to a comic. consisting of acrylic and color pencil, I will do 4 more pages to have them ready for December. I hope everyone will enjoy it.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great work!

The coloring you've done here is very interesting; I was having a hard time understanding why it looked so unique until I read your comments, hahah. I like the heavy, cinematic feel to the scenes in the panels, and you even have a panel devoted to that great title you have. The lens flare, the shading of the face, and especially that velvety fabric are wonderfully done. One issue with contrast I have is in the last panel on the lower right; the character doesn't stand out enough from the background, maybe decrease the saturation of the background or add more highlights on the guy's back? I would also have liked to see some changes to the top and middle panels. I feel that the white at the top is a lapse of effort even though I know it probably was intentional, but there just isn't enough white space to emphasize the emptiness. Another issue with space is how cramped the title is. You worked hard on it, show it off! Going on the cinematic analogy, a lot of movies pause the action just to display the title in all of its glory. I feel you should do the same. I realize all of these suggestions require more space that's not available. You could try condensing the scenes into fewer panels (hard way) or try a two page spread. Let me know what you think.

I love your ideas, some of them will definitely help. The top panels I can definitely give the background a wash of color to occupy space or paint a simple scenery outside the panels. I'm afraid there's nothing much can be done for the center panel with the title this page being an opening,but I'm glad to hear that I succeeded in giving that cinematic look. For the bottom right panel, I am definitely going to put highlights on the guy so I'm pleased you've point that out for me. Thank you so much for your insight and helpful suggestions.
