Colour Advice?

Right! I need your opinions and advice guys.  

I've spent today colouring and recolouring my 2 main characters and I've made some progress but I just can't decide on the actual colours themselves...  I want it all to tie in nicely with the environment but not so much since they are meant to be alien to it.  Also, since nothing so far has kept 100% to the original designs, I'm getting slightly concerned it might all end up looking a bit mis-match.

Here are a couple of shots to give an idea.  There's no textures or details yet - just materials and colours.
This isn't a choice between the 2 pictures.  The colours can be changed completely.  I just need some other folks views. =)

Getting there... =)


  1. Just go for the old blue and orange... it's clichéd and overused, but for a good reason. It looks super badass.

  2. You have a point sir. I was trying to steer away from a Tron cop-out but I guess it's inevitable...

  3. I was actually thinking something similar. The two characters definitely have to be contrasting colours I think, since they are physically at odds to each other. Ideally they should stand out from the background colours too.

  4. That's the problem with the blue for one of the characters. It would blend into the environment and leave the orange standing alone. Also, neither can be yellow or red due to what the anti-virus will look like and the firewall that will turn everything a fiery colour. That leaves it a bit tricky getting all the right colours that look right together and that keep the look I'm going for.
