Back again.

It's happening in the past so we're going black and white, to underline that.

I like the Moonracer-looking entomorph.

Also, some George Washington symbolism...

 ... what? Am I just being non-American and not seeing it?

I am also non-American. :v

But I am just imagining a cherry tree fable allusion Wayward probably didn't mean.

He chopped down a tree and he's bringing truth, I guess.  Mostly I just wanted to have an Aquaan doing ( well, implied to have been doing ) heavy physical work, since we usually see them doing lab stuff.

All Tal and Gilou need to do to completely annoy Zefonith is hold hands.

Quick artistic / technical question:  why did you choose black and white for the flash back and not color the past panel and then "fade" it so there are only a few hints of color?  I know you have done black and white (some gray scale in one, I believe) for some of your flashbacks, but what's your reasoning for doing that?  Symbolic of how memories are never clear or let's you focus on getting detail across that might be lost after coloring the page?  Weird question, I know, but I'm curious.

I've cycled through a few different ways of showing the past ( doing nothing but a time-setting text box, white borders instead of black, and inked black and white.  I decided I liked the effect of the switching to black and white.  It makes it nice and obvious that we are somewhere else.

Also:
 - Enh, excuse to do something a little different for a bit, focusing more on lines and less on colour.

Real reason:
 - Been having minor wrist troubles for a while, can manage it but long stints on the tablet when I forget to take breaks hurt and colouring is long stints on the tablet and forgetting to take breaks. :p

Have you tried a brace?  I wear a carpal tunnel brace to sleep when I'm having wrist pain, and I think you've seen my crafting braces for when I'm doing a lot of pliers work.  I've been REALLY bad about wearing them lately but they do help. >_>

I have a DIY brace for sleeping when it gets bad ( 'bad as defined by 'do I think, "oh good, I get to put my brace on now" while getting ready for bed'. )  Don't know if a brace would help for tablet work, since I expect I'd also need to retrain myself to draw from the elbow and not the wrist if my wrist was locked in place.

I've been mostly handling it by wrist exercises, more breaks, and rescheduling colouring or other tablet-heavy work to the afternoon rather than night.  And bracing at night, when I need to.

Dude, if you're at 'I need a brace" stage, you need a doctor.

Thanks!

Sorry to hear about your wrists.  I'm sure you've heard it from everyone, but do, please, take care of yourself.  Not (solely) because I would hate to never see HarbourMaster again, but because I've been there.  I used to draw every day while doing my undergrad work and after about two weeks of sitting for hours at my desk drawing and coloring, I could no longer feel my left pinkie finger.  Now, years later, I can only draw for about an hour or two before my hand starts to go numb.  I miss drawing.
