An interactive animated webcomic accompanying a VR and first person experience

Venice: Tides To Come Chapter One is a motion webcomic about a professor who is going on an epic adventure. This story leads up towards a VR and first person experience.
In this first chapter we get to meet the main character and his drive to start an adventure once again.
The story hints towards a larger series, I have storyboarded the entire story up until the start of the game, but we ended up focussing more on the first chapter, which we fully produced at the end.
For this first chapter I designed this colorscript to further drive home the mood of the situation Walter is in during his journey.
For the moodboard I decided on using watercolor textures to drive home the theme of a sunken city, and used a limited color palette to make it feel more dramatic and stylised.
Concept art to test the limited colorpalette, and we used this to test the web functionality.
