Colorings.

Trying to color more comics. Dunno if I'm wasting my time tho.



Think color brings enough added interest to throw an extra hour or two to each comic for a nice lighting/color job? Does color matter?

Yep, color matters. Before I saw True Grit in the the-ay-ter last night, I was bombarded by trailers for several Inception rip-offs run through the low-saturation "grime filter" so many thrillers favor nowadays. I swear they want me to feel dirty or suicidal or something before I go in.

If they painted a mood as clearly and beautifully as What's Opera Doc? -- a wacky short that just happened to be designed with passion, as I imagine your wacky comics might be -- I might have taken those movies more seriously. Black-and-white comics are awesome, but exploring the possibilities of color is no waste of time.

Follow the rule of thumb for newspapers: only color on Sundays.

I think colour is important for grabbing attentio, plus you can really set the mood for a frame with colour.

If we were dogs who only see in black and white, or Woody Allen, then it wouldn't matter. Since we aren't, Color sells it best!
