Omnitarium - Grey Tone and Colour Tests

I'm in the process of working with Heather Breckel and doing some grey-tone and colour tests on the pages of Omnitarium.

Here is page one of the story in it's original form, grey-toned and coloured:




What do people think?

Should I continue one way or the other, or just leave the series be?

Hi Jamie. I like the colourized version and the original. My wife (who has way more colour and design street cred as a professional fashion designer) prefers colour but also likes the grey tones...

So two votes for colour (the coloured version is better than I thought it would be!)

ArrrOOoo!

Thank you (to you both!).

I'm trying one more test, a spot colour test, something like the later Sin City books - picking one or two things a page to make it stand out a little...

We shall see - I'm still not 100% sold on any one thing. JC's work was so stark that colour might take a bit away from it.

I dig the coloured page myself. I think the weakest of the three is the grey one, and I think that's because the contrast is too high. But I think the coloured version is interesting and not a style we see much of, which makes it cool. There's a lot of scope to play about with mood if you colour like that too...
