Poison Ivy Gray
Ok, so sometimes the simple way out is the best way out. I was looking for validation from one of my trusted inside critics... and got a "hmmmm" about the color piece. When I showed the halftoned version, that individual felt that the color was not adding anything to the story. In fact it was detracting. I have trouble, because I love black and white illustration. There is a drama, a raw drawing construction that I never get tired of. But I was fearing that my bias was taking over. With a second vote to confirm, I will stay with the black and white version. I feel better now... don't you?
