Color Beginnings

Although I still have some editing and reworking to do on some pages, I've started to color my comic Hedra. I can't explain why, but in my head this comic has always been pink and blue. I think a limited palette is necessary because of the dominance of the blacks in the inks. There isn't really room for a wide variety of colors. It would simply be a visual fight. I went with a dark blue/purple and three shades of pink and then put in a layer of yellow underneath to give it some warmth.

Some of the inspiration for this came from this video by Isao Hashimoto, which documents all the nuclear explosions (mostly tests) from 1945-1998.
