Haditha Color Preview

I'm going back and cleaning up the messy edges I missed, but like the limited palette. I made Nathan's legs look like they've been in Miami, a shade (or four) too dark. It's interesting what you don't see until you send an image out into the world. It's been fun trying to figure out what goes where. This reminds me of a painting exercise we did in my first painting class at South: we paired ivory black with a few warmer tones, and could make the ivory black appear light blue--an optical illusion. The 'blue' of the flag almost looks blue, even though it's grey.

P.S. The lettering on this page totally rules.
