519: The Gift, Part II
   

Yay, brighter colors! <3  You guys probably wouldn't have noticed, but I changed the colors that I use for shading on this comic.  Normally I'd just use black at low opacity for the majority of it, but this time I decided to go with saturated colors instead.  I owe that to animator PlagueOfGripes and his recent art video, wherein he gives out some tips on color-shading vs. black-shading.  It dragged out the shading process quite a bit, but it looks soooooo much prettier this way.

That's it for now.  I need twelve hours of sleep before doing anything else, and then I'll be able to get started on the next comic.  I'll see you guys in a day or two!
