What you see above was my last effort towards coming up with a style for Two Drink Minimum that would impress a prospective publisher. It is unfinished, the coloring isn’t complete, no shading, no backgrounds, but it gives you an idea of where I was headed.
I stopped working on it when Alex and I decided we didn’t care about the publisher and were going to do things our way, part of which includes black and white. I’m glad we did. I always wanted Black Snow to remain a purely black and white title. If we went the color route I was going to try to keep a pretty specific muted color scheme, which I was failing at here, as this palette is a bit too bright.
I’m glad we didn’t pursue this route and things turned out the way they did. I think we’ve got a solid, defined look at this point that really benefits from the non-use of color.
BTW, don’t expect those to be the character exact character designs for the Lone Wolf and Wolf Pack.
I don’t like to show unfinished work, but I thought this piece had some merit in sharing. So hopefully that was of some interest to you.
