Often in my efforts to experiment with colors, I end up using too many, leading to quite a clutter. My wife kept telling me to keep the colors simple so that they would stand out better.
I made some minor updates to Karthikeya’s design, adding more shoulder armor on his left side, adding creases to his collar and adding more detail to his armor and dhoti. When it came to finishing up the piece, I decided to leave it start with no background. And to play up the contrast even further, I came up with a version in full greyscale.
Which version stands out better?
