Just something for fun I colored over my friend Andie Tong's awesome Wolvie sketch.

:icondeemonproductions: is a constant fave. I think he needs more exposure on this side of the pond.

Great colors, Brian. Have I been doing something wrong? I'm the most novice-y of novices, but I would have made the background cooler to pop him and his warmer color out from the background. At least that's how I understand color theory . . .

That IS color theory. Knowing when to apply it is part of it as well though. There isn't anything to "pop him" away from here and the colors for this are more about mood. Not separation. You can still guide the viewer's eye without resorting to complimentary color palettes. For instance on this the brightest point is his head and shoulders. That's where the eye goes first. No need for cools to make that pop.

Thanks Brian!

So if there was more of a proper background that's where the "pop" would come in? This is less about establishing planes (foreground, middle ground, background) than it is about establishing mood. I only have an elementary understanding of color and I keep thinking about how :iconroboworks:, :iconwhoisrico: and the goat Brian Stelfreeze. Granted, that's going from a skateboard to Nascar, but it's something I would really like to know how to execute better.

Thanks again for your time, Brian!

It really comes down to what your coloring and what you are hoping to accomplish. Color theory, palette, etc are all just tools to get your desired effect. You don't have to use all the tools all the time.  I can get away with a monochromatic scheme here cause there is nothing else competing with Wolverine. If this were sequential then I'd make things pop to make sure to guide the reader's eye through the sequence. The double page Bloodshot sequence I posted is a good example of this. Warm on cools.

That Bloodshot post is too sexy for words! You and Lewis Larosa are a formidable combination. That page looks so good it should be a Spectrum nominee.

Always thought Wolverine was a good character. He's got a lot going for him.
