Experimentation with transparent comic backgrounds
This is a new comic I made, part of the next series of Rachel the Great comics. It’s got a transparent background to let the site’s color shine through. This gives me essentially three colors to work with, black, white, and the background color of the site it’s on. The tricky part while designing it is to make sure that it looks good on both dark and light backgrounds. Anyway, enjoy the sneak peek! It’s based on a true story. If you don’t work with marketers, you may never have heard these phrases before. Thank goodness. These are buzzwords at their finest.
And here it is with a dark background I added with CSS only:
And here it is with a colorful background, also shining through the transparent pixels:
It think it’s safest to put a contrasting border on any free-standing text, like the title and indicia.
Anyway, hope you think it’s neat! I could see lots of fun uses for this.
