Wrath of Mom

One of my cartooning heroes is Kevin Cannon.  I am constantly awed by his different art styles, creative use of sound effects and various coloring palettes.  One of his coloring styles is using different shades of a particular color, like in the strip below:


I like the way this looks, so I thought I’d give it a shot on a short comic.  I had fun coloring it, but I am not sure if it works.  I thought limiting the style to just the “flashback” of the strip might break up the comic a bit, but I don’t know.  It just might be a style that doesn’t work for me.

Anyway, I think it’s a pretty funny strip, with or without weird coloring styles.

    Well, it’s because the colors clash. You need to have a more uniform color pallet, wherein the colors compliment each other. This is just too bright and flashy; but the idea of using a different color scheme for the flashback is sound.

    Yeah, I think you’re right. You would know, you’re the best colorist I know. Take a crack at it if you want!
