The Wanderer - Color vs Black and White by GENZOMAN The Wanderer - Color vs Black and White by GENZOMAN
Hi there guys, there goes a color page vs a black and white page with screen tone. The B&W page was just a experiment done time ago. I upload this to show the difference between them ( and to know your opinion about if you prefer it on colors or B&W)

The Wanderer is a comic I been doing for a while now :P hope to finish it soon.

Both pages done in PSCS4/Wacom Bamboo/8 hours/Music: Espers - Caroline

The Wanderer - Color vs Black and White by GENZOMAN

The black and white has more contrast and the action is more interesting.  The color puts the focus on the sexy woman.  I like strong female characters.  The black and white is a definite buy.  The color needs work.  The balance has been lost.

I think color is fine. The B&W seems like it would be fine too. I think the reason why people are preferring the colored one more is because the B&W version has almost nothing in the background. The colored version has a giant mountain in the background with all sorts of shading, while B&W has a whole lot of space.

Your color is so vibrant that in black and white you lose some details.
If I may make a suggestion, perhaps sepia in warm or aged paper tones might work well.

I feel that the color makes it easier to see what's going on, defining the images better.

I feel like, with this comic specifically, the color just adds more. It makes it feel complete.

I love to read manga and the fact that it is B&W... even though I love B&W I'm telling you this so you know that when I say I prefer your work on color, I really prefer it... you are a master when it comes to coloring :) (excuse my english u.u)

Both are really good, but it's a little hard to compare them since the coloured one has so much more going on in the background that simply isn't there in the B/W. Traditionaly I prefer B/W but your shadowing of the black suit and gloves in the col-version are really great and the background on the last page is simply amazing. To bad it isn't incorporated in the b/w... btw, where could on find and read this comic of yours?

Awesome work mate!

Black & White is surprisingly good, but this comic of yours was born in colour, and should remain such.

Hola Genzo, el color está hermoso pero en cuanto a lectura, hace que se me pierda el tema de los huevos que se lanzan en las viñetas 1,2 y 6, como que no los veo, en cambio en B/N se nota claramente lo que está pasando ya que hay menos ruido visual(o me distraigo menos del foco de atención). De repente si le agregas onomatopeyas o similar donde hay líneas cinéticas podría ayudar.

I prefer several things about the B&W version: It's easier to read because there's no distracting compositional noise, the textures look nicer, and the shadows are much better-defined.
The colour version has the advantage of better-defined environments, but I think that's something you could do just as easily in B&W.

The colours aren't bad, but I don't think they do anything to make the comic better.

There is no reason to do a webcomic in b/w if it isn't going to be printed, but even if this comic does get printed you have enough fans that they will shell out for full-color. Also, your coloring is your big selling point, so I don't think there is any reason to go b/w.

The Atmosphere (Sense of time, and even a bit of space, oddly) is better in the colored one, the expressions are more vivid on the BW.

Generally I prefer the colored.

it makes it more easier to read with out as much BG info, but maybe experiment with lines to represent for BG instead of toning it.
