JBnD 1-1 Color Sketch

Hey, I finally figured out how to accurately color bricks!

Wow, that was a hurdle. I thought I'd need to supersaturate everything with the orange highlights, but this works better, I think.

When you're driving in the city at night, you either see red, beige, etc, just like you do during the day, with your brain compensating for the color saturation, or you realize that the colors are a bit saturated, and your brain sees way too much complexity of the colors to be able to imitate in a humble little marker drawing for your first ever comic.

I pick up single-issue comics off the cheap rack at the store sometimes (I'll say why I don't read ongoing series in a journal entry sometime) and one of those that I really liked, partly for how it looked, was the apparent first issue of "Mage" by Image Comics, which takes place in urban environments with the kind of feel that I want to capture in these first few pages, so i poured over that comic last night and thought about how to imitate the colors I saw there using Copics.

Of course, Dax's night sky won't be quite so colorful as Jeremy Cox made Kevin and Joe's. Guess I'm just a little bit bleaker.
