I started out doing it in black and white. The editor really wanted the first one colored, after I had already submitted it. I used an older comics method, and printed the cartoon on watercolor paper. I colored it, and then printed the ink drawing on a transparency, and laid that overtop. That way, the linework was still crisp, but the color was nice and painterly. The only problem is, with my heavily shaded style, it closed up the linework too much, and I didn't like it. I told the publisher I would only do it in black and grey from that point on. The third one, which I'm posting, was the one I was most pleased with, I finally felt comfortable and on a roll, when he decided he really wanted them in color again. So he started having them colored by someone else, and they looked horrible. I agreed to take up coloring duties again, and reverted to the watercolor/linework thing. But I haven't been happy with the results, they look muddy. I was thinking of switching over to doing them in almost full watercolors, with very minimal linework. Any opinions?
