"Yaah!" - It was clear where the initiative lay in this combat...

I wanted to present two clear strong figures, whose costuming and character were easy to read. To achieve this I adopted a more muted, less saturated, background against which their vibrant colours would stand out. Note how I fade the trailing, distant limbs by also dropping back their saturation. This also helps with the depth, and clarity.
