Adding fire to the established colour scheme is turning things.... weird... and unappealing.... in terms of colour..... I guess this is why you're supposed to do a good job of planning your comic.

Have you tried doing different things with the fire? Maybe make it more stylized, or change the color to red?

I actually really like the look of the fire. But I'm probably biased since I think this comic is gorgeous in general.

Yeah, I don't mean to say I have a problem with the fire, I'm just trying to brainstorm ways around it based on what Larkie is maybe having problems with. One of my favorite things about the comic is the color scheme--with the art style, it really makes the characters (especially Ziggy) pop in a cool way.

I'm guessing the issue is that the fire is a fairly neutral color from the pallet, and the shading is such that it's washing out the characters? To me, the best way to fix that is to make the fire pop, too. I mean, it isn't just background dressing, it's dangerous and a central factor to the current conflict, so maybe it needs more emphasis? I dunno.

So to make it stand out more...again I dunno. Maybe make the edges sharper/less shaded (what I meant by "more stylized") or pick a different hue from the wheel? Again, not an artist, just throwing stuff that maybe sticks.

I like the fire and effect it gives quite a bit; the fact that it's so different from the usual colors and pallet makes it a little jarring and unsettling, which I think fits the current mood nicely.

I do think that Abnaxis's suggestion to maybe sharpen the edges to give it a more stylized look in keeping with the general comic style could work really nicely without needing to alter the color too much, if at all.

That's just my two cents, though. It's ultimately up to you and your preference as an artist.
