Color Mutation

I've been finishing up the current submission, and one of the things I've been doing is muting the colors a little. I found that in the original format my comic looked a little too kiddie. I'm trying to write an all-ages comic, but not a comic specifically targeted at the youngest of the young kids.

The original version just looked a little too crayola-bright, so I muted the colors by desaturating them a little. I'm not great with colors, so it took a while and I'm not 100% stoked about the results, but it looks better, at least. The original is on the left, and the yellow-green-blue combo was just too bright for my tastes.

Arctic Exploration

It looks like a French animation firm is working on an arctic exploration-themed animated movie. It looks beautiful.

I only wish I'd been able to complete my first Victor and Martin submission, from 2010.

Well, this will only strengthen my efforts to get the first Victor and Martin comic completed.

I'm going to try to post more. The posts will be short, though. I've started making more sketches with the sole idea of messing around with them a little and then posting them.
