The final product is here!
I'm definitely happier than I previously thought I would be with this. The colors ended up coming together nicely but not too too much in my opinion.
After we lined our artwork, we met up and compiled our two files. We then got to work coloring, finishing up our comic panels, and animating out individual objects. This was done using Photoshop's Animation capabilities.
We think that even though the image may be busy, the animated objects allow for a nice focal point. It came out to be an illustration packed full of information, and it's almost exactly what we invisioned.
