More shop talk on the way tomorrow over on Patreon: I recorded the coloring of panel two from this week’s episode. The color for that panel took just five minutes (versus three hours for Phosphene’s textures in panels 1, 3, and 4). It’s a fun, simple technique and I’m excited to share it. I think that if I could figure out how to do a comic strip entirely in silhouettes, I could produce 10 episodes a week. 🙂

Thanks again for your kind shares, comments, and support! 🙂
