Happy Blackening-of-the-heavens Day to you, folks! It's overcast here in my neck of the woods, so the much-hyped solar eclipse didn't amount to a whole lot more than the cloud cover being slightly darker. Perhaps more importantly, this phenomenon doesn't appear to have triggered the anticipated Advent of Yzzrghthöth, Thousand-Mawed Serpent of Perpetual Darkness, so the comic posts will continue.
As you probably noticed, I've been departing ever so slightly from the primarily gray toned, limited color palette as the pages go on. While I'm not certain about the practicality of going full color (it's pretty, and I like it, but per-page production is long enough as it is), I do like introducing a little bit more if it works.

I'm also trying to be a little looser at each stage of the page process, or at least a little faster and less fussy. It's harder than I thought, telling myself to pull back on shading detail or calling it "done" instead of killing an hour tweaking details that aren't terribly important.

As always, it's a learning process. And just as with previous comics, I'll keep learning and trying stuff as I go. Total visual cohesion would probably be boring anyway.

Til next time, enjoy!
