Here are the two central characters of Berserker: Hanne and Owen. I wasn’t trying to be all pink/blue = girl/boy, but these were the colors that spoke to me for my two heroes. Both are decent, kind people, and these colors felt very grounded and amiable.
Next door, are the chips for the antagonists: Rolf and Ketil. These two guys are about as different as different can be. The combinations they make with Hanne and Owen felt right to me. That Ketil is a real SOB, and this bright color felt dangerous.
But when I went to pick out the colors for Sissel and the two men she’s in conflict within Ransacker, I discovered a problem.
These were the colors that felt like they represented the characters. But… hmm… no contrast. No drama between these colors.
