"That look" = selective Desaturation.
Hitting the "D" key, you can use any coloring tool in the MODE>SATURATION option to replace any hue with B&W.
Not hitting the "D" key will saturate with the colours on your palette. Here's and example:
= normal background I used in my DQ'ed submission.
= same bg with ORANGE and BLUE set as foreground/background colours.
= coloring with same tool/mode after hitting "D" key.
The movie Sin City was shot in full color and selectively desaturated afterwards.
If you haven't
watched Sin City, presumably you've been living under a rock or smoking one.
