Looking good. The only thing I wonder while looking through all the pictures in this thread is if you shouldn't use ink lines only for the outlines of characters and perhaps add desired "internal" ink lines by creating them as part of textures for more consistent results than the ink lens...
(I am assuming you're using the toon ink lens shader :-? )

yep, that's the shader :). Right now, characters have internal and external ink lines active, with backgrounds only internal or none

It only took a year to get this far, 4 more shots to go after this one. Shot 100. Since Act 2 is only 4-5 minutes, I'm going to try and complete that by August. Looks like I won't meet the deadline of rough shots complete by September :)

a few more minor color changes on the technodrome. I'm trying to make every other panel a different color so it brings out the details in things like the steps, radar eye, Dome panels, wheels, a bit better when rendering. seems to be working

Wow that's a challenge!

This color sampler might be of help, it has a "color deficiency preview":

Just an idea, maybe setting the colors there and then using the colors from the top area will work as an "inverse mode" if that is even possible.

Personally I don't see the lack of 100% color correctness to be such a problem. It's a work of art (and a labor of love, by the look of it). It won't be a color correct reproduction, but it's quite interesting nonetheless. And the "original" interpretation of some colors just adds to the artistic value of the endeavor IMHO...
