Translation painting

The drawings I received to translate made me think of the question of which is more expressive, high representation or cartoony image? I'm going to try to depict a battle of sorts between these two. I'm going to pick out the red, black, and predominantly white of the drawings as colours for my painting. I want to experiment with some paint pens (if I can find some) to get that sort of graphiti-esque type of line for some of the cartoony parts. I happened onto a really beautifully ugly neon pinky red doing a cadmium red wash over the gessoed canvas.
