I’m really proud of this page! I had so much fun with it. Also the image in the background may look familiar to you. What I enjoyed the most about this section is how drastically the visual mood changes from the dark, gloomy blues to this bright white — but the behavior of the characters is in reverse. Tama poking fun at Kali is out of place for the dark colors, and Mizha with her mother has a dour mood for a place so bright.
I’ve always been drawn to strong contrasts. I love Chiaroscuro artwork. I enjoy foods that have interesting combinations of seemingly opposing flavors. Or stories that take two things that mash together two things that wouldn’t seem to go together. I think that’s why I love modernized myths and fairy-tales. Mixing the present day with things from ancient days just yields so many interesting combinations.
Are you a fan of contrasts? What’s your favorite example of something you love made of two things that “shouldn’t” go together?
