This was a bit of a funny page, since there’s literally no light source in the first few panels – I realised I had to either do the complete cop out of pure black (with optional googly eyes) or figure out how on earth one paints the concept of Eigengrau.

I was sneezing on and off for like half an hour. THE THINGS I DO FOR THIS COMIC
