The guys aren't feeling so great.
I've managed to get into a groove where I just barely finish the page around now for NEXT WEEK instead of the CURRENT WEEK, so that's a relief. Here's to pushing that farther and farther back. I miss my buffer.

Progress on the BB game is going well. I've changed the gameplay around so that you play as Machk carrying Poet like a backpack. :') I'll leave it up to you to figure out why that happened. For more game development updates & screenshots, check out the bb blog.

I have a twitter account if anyone is bored and feels like chatting.

I mean, it'd be pretty weird if after the brutalization they went through they DID feel great, now, wouldn't it?

Pain is going to be a thing for a while with these too. :/

Not sure how much pain BB feels but Machk's face is a hamburger.
He is going to look terrible once that heals... :/

Most of it is Rowtag's blood splattered on his face, honestly.

The busted nose isn't gonna do him any favours though.

Talk about a rough day...
These two could really use a little R&R after that mess. Glad to see they both survived though.

AHhhh!
I absolutely adore your color palettes
Color senpai!
Can you give me some tips?
It's so beautiful and doesn't make the character look too different! How do you do it?

I'm not very good at teaching, but I'll give it a whirl!

Basically I try to pick colors within each color scheme that more or less reflect what the colors would be like in white light? I don't always follow it to a point but that's the general idea.

It's like. I try to keep in mind the VALUES of my characters' color schemes. Like which things are darker than others and which are lighter. And then when I'm working in another color scheme (for example, this pink one), I just pick corresponding colors within the scheme that are darker & lighter than each other, just like the normal colors are. So that in action would look like:

In white light (ie. midday, sunny out with some clouds):
Dark tones: Poet's cape & thighs. Machk's shirt & hair.
Mid tones: Poet's hair, palms, chest plate. Machk's skin, boots, & pants.
Light tones: Poet's skin, most of his cyborg parts. Machk's backpack & wrist wraps.

On this pink page, in an artsy sandstorm:
Dark tones: Poet's cape & thighs. Machk's shirt & hair.
Mid tones: Poet's hair, palms, chest plate. Machk's skin & boots.
Light tones: Poet's skin, most of his cyborg parts. Machk's pants, backpack & wrist wraps.

In this case I made Machk's pants lighter so that he would contrast Poet's dark cloak better. Here's a little diagram of their color schemes across multiple scenes:



You can tell that I don't always keep everything the same value, but it's more or less similar in relation to each other. Like Machk's skin will always be darker than Poet's, and Machk's pants will generally be lighter than Poet's cloak. And so on and so forth.

I confess I'm not sure how to explain how I go about picking colors that are the right hue relative to each other. I just kind of eyeball it. But I usually don't make my own color schemes either, I tend to grab the colors off of photographs to get a solid starting point.

I hope this can help you in some way, but if you have any questions feel free to ask! I know I'm not very clear when I explain this stuff.
