Color keys

Well, I hit a year since my last post and I figure that's pretty unacceptable, so I dug up something old that I haven't posted before to keep the ol blog alive. Just a little color key series for Hellgate: Tokyo before Flagship Studios imploded. The idea here was to break up the monotonous, desaturated, dingy brown palette that dominated the original enviros with some more colorful areas and *gasp* some living plant life.
