The first round started with me being matched against Yul, whose character was Yazh, a nineteen-foot tall psychic Quetzalcoatlus, AKA “bird auntie.” Interestingly, this colorscheme was initially selected simply because the first two pages took place at night, and thus I could simplify the palette and save time on these pages. When Round 2 rolled around and I went immediately into panic mode (more on that later), I went back to these two pages and used them as a basis for the fauxnochrome coloring method you’ll see throughout my other comics.
