This was going to be the first peak at the new palette for the comic, but at the last minute I decided to recolor this cover to look a bit more stylized. While this made it much simpler, I do think it's a definite improvement - the previous version with the colors properly on display was kind of bland by comparison.

Actually, it occurs to me that choosing this chapter out of all of them to have a new palette is very appropriate, given color and light play a big part in it. There's a story event I could have tied it to if really desired, but that'd just be weird - just assume the way the colors will be presented in this chapter and onward is how they're supposed to be in previous ones, unless there's a further revision later.

For the record, by saying that I edited this cover at the last minute I mean I'd already typed my comments up for this and then did it and erased them. Yeah, very last minute touch there - as said though, do think this is a definite improvement.

Again, Martin came up with the idea for this cover. Originally the kids were meant to look different, but thought that might be a bit too strange for the cover so figured I'd just show them normally.

Martin surprised me with the color change of course, as he tends to do, and I love the newer look. ^^ As he said, color is a very important factor in this chapter, and it just came out great. Not that it was easy, know some of the pages were particularly time-consuming.

Hope everyone enjoys this next chapter. ^^

Grant has FINGERNAILS? (I'm just assuming the hands are Grant's.)

All of my characters have fingernails once the camera gets uncomfortably close to their hands. ^^
