I totally agree! Though for a truly Frank Miller style, your palette is is reduced to pure B/W with color accents. So no shades of grey, as from your examples. Frank Miller was the inspiration for my painting (best seen in Dr Mercury and Androida, i supposed) , though I turned more to a classic B/W comic through the process.


This was a conscious decision as it got me thinking about what I would do if I expanded the concept to my full vision (B/W tabletop with heroes and villians). I ultimately settled that if villians were introduced they should balance the heroes. So, the villians would be recognizably white on black (in a more true Frank Miller style).

I've also been thinking on how to make my citizens stand out from game pieces, since I just picked up some really great hostage minis to fill the role! I'm thinking the simplest way will be to do them in a similar way, but do the base ring in white instead of black. We shall see. should have a post up in the next few days!

What about doing the citizens in a 'negative' style?
Black with white line

Well, I cant do that, that's how I'm gonna do the villains... someday!

You may be on to something! I never thought about the citizens as little focal points in in otherwise colorless world! I could go full color on the same B/W base style to tie it together! Or I guess with the right models, I could do them like Frank Miller's 'ladies'.

While cool, I wouldn't want to make copies of someone elses models to do it and my own sculpting skill is not quiet at the point of creating my own citizens!

Again cool, but the real Seabolt is a partial owner of my flgs and I wouldn't want to do anything to boost his ego beyond the point it is already at for having a supreme named after him! He'd never let me live it down if I had "converted" him!

Couldn't you just cast him up in clear resin and use blue washes to make it blue? or perhaps add some blue ink or something to the resin prior to casting? Keep in mind I have no idea how hard it would be to cast up seabolt.
