Bitter Pill page 2!

And here we are with page 2! I may change the color of the captions boxes, but for now it's all done!

A little background on my coloring style for these pages. I started the book out with mostly warm colors because it fit with the theme of fear, and the intensity I wanted for the first page and a half. Reds and oranges, etc.

As he gets closer to (Salvation? Help? A way out?) the page takes on a calmer, cooler color palette. He may seem cornered, but there's something better waiting on the next page. I did keep to using warmer colors for the dogs in panel 5 though.

I'm not sure how well it works right now, but hopefully after page 3 is up, it will all make sense.

Please comment, critique, etc. I'm all growed up now and can take it.

Great stuff and the more expressionistic you get the better. Bitter Pill lapes into the abstract as a device to begin with so the more personal ideas you bring to it the better. In short great idea on the color scheme.
