Using Toon Boom To Test Color Palettes

Color sections are all separated and ready for iteration.

I know what you're thinking and NO, I do not have the worst taste in color.  But sadly, my use of color is not great.  Everything I try to come up with feels like a copy of something else I've seen before.  Its pretty maddening.

Knowing all that, I've decided the key to figuring out proper color scheme is iteration.  I want to have it blocked out and then slowly tweak the design until I have it just the way I want it.  That's where Toon Boom comes in.

The software has a great color management system where I can adjust the colors after I've placed them and get them to the point that I want.  On top of that, I can easily switch the entire palette to another saved palette for a different effect.  Its the key to separating out my line work from my fills.  Not to mention creating my normal maps.

I'm hoping to have some color variations up soon.
