first colors from Chris… and they look gorgeous

version 1 - see v2 below

It didn’t take Chris long to start turning colors around. Earlier this afternoon he sent us a first proof of panel one. That version needed just a bit of tweaking, a little less harsh on the lighting, a little less separation between foreground and background.

An hour later Chris sent us version 2 and we’re both bouncing off the walls. Much more natural, a warm loving moment. Everyone’s more defined, and everything that was great about version 1 is still there. Check out the soft watercolor effects on the back walls and the warm lighting over Mom.

To compliment that softness in Chris’ colors we’re thinking about using color-toned narration boxes and line borders (rather than the standard black and white).

Loving it. Everything on this project is going in the right direction.
