*GASP* Can it be? Is that... COLOR? Am I finally coloring pages in again? In fact, the whole joke of this page is about colors, so I must have written this page SPECIFICALLY to be a meta-reference to the fact that there'd be more than just line art, right? I mean, only a complete and utter IDIOT would have written the dialog for this page expecting it to go public in complete black and white, right? Right?

...yeah, I'm a complete and total idiot, and this page actually WAS originally loaded with nothing colored in, just like the previous pages. But thankfully, since the heavy lifting was already done before I left for Atlanta last week, I've had time to go back and at least color in the two characters talking, so that the dialog isn't COMPLETE nonsense to anyone who doesn't already know what they're supposed to look like. And, of course, the best part is, it STILL relies on a bit of reader's knowledge to know that the trim on Lynne-3's jacket is pink and Layla's hair is red when we see them NOT in mostly grey scale.

Incidentally, the reason I usually do the comic that way is primarily a time thing. I mean, theoretically it was to make the pages easier to print one day, but really it just helps me get things done faster. Balancing light and dark is a lot easier than balancing a whole array of colors against each other, and there's a level of detail that looks "done" to me in grey that only looks like a rough draft at best in full color. As you've no doubt notice over the years, I need as much help getting things done on time as I can get.

Also incidentally, I really do like dressing Layla in blues and purples because of how her red hair pops against it... even if we so rarely get to actually see that happen.

And last of all, there's still no new Voting Incentive today, BUT they should be back to normal come Friday. Now, back to work on Conventional Wisdom comics...

And of course, once he found the right color he made it permanent with *mumble* nano-*mumble*!
My technobabble may need some work…

Meh, it's not really any LESS meaningless than the technobabble most professional writers use.

@ dylgramac: *GASP* Are you talking about Pigment Nano-Binders!?! The nanomachines that read the current pigments of your hair or skin and forcibly bind it into that colour?

Why did you mumble the words "Pigment" and "Binder" though? It's not like those words, even in that specific order, are copyrighted by the company who makes the product. Every time they tried, a Nitpicker destroys their arguments until they don't have a legal leg to stand on.
