Holding a grudge and not aknowledging it can be quite dangerous...

During the second draft of the script for Shadows of the true light this passage was a key passage. There is quite a bit to say about what's going on around Paul, Tullie and Jun but, for now, it's better to keep following these three as they get to know each other.

A while ago.... actually more than 2 years ago, I drew a manga... well, let's say I drew a comic which had to be read with the oriental orientation and was made using just inks and tones. That story was called "Adagio for adventures" and it's still here on my Smackjeeves account. I remember studying how to use Mangastudio for that (I know: by that time Mngastudio had already evolved into Clip Studio but I didn't had the new version and I was poor... as I am today...), going through the process of learning all the tones stuff, printing several tests for the tones in the library that felt more promising and all that. With this page I got back to inks and tones but I used on PH here, after finding out how to use some filters to create the dotted effect at the base of tones.
I'm kinda proud of what I could do here with all the stuff I've learned.

Paul: -You're pranking me 'cause you noticed that maybe I like Tullie...
Jun: -"maybe" Pffft ahahah!
Paul:-...

Going back to a water-based background while also inviting white in the page to frame the pecils' texture still gives a rushed feeling... I'm starting to think that all this experimentation with traditional media is not really going to get me anywhere. I guess I'll settle for a technique in the next few pages.

Apprenticeship for engineers in Illuminandia usually lasts for a year after the studies. Paul came to Namveti three years ago, but he moved to the little town of Ansang only a little less than two years ago to complete his studies and the apprenticeship/internship (you can use both words).
I'll leave the rest of the story to Paul to tell :)

Acrylics are so much fun to use! It's really a shame it takes me forever to paint a page with this technique...

Getting cocky, ain't we?

In case you're wondering: in this world the only source of energy (at least for machines) is "true light". As for what "true light" is... just think of it as electricity for now, we'll have plenty of time to discuss the matter later on :)

I wanted to add something to Paul's words but I guess this is not really the right time...

Paul (the brown dog), Turbo (the cat) and Sam (the other roundish-dog) have invented their own board game but they lack good miniatures to play.
Honestly I don't think those wooden figures can really count as thematic minis, but they are an improvement nonetheless: so far they had been playing with corks and buttons for tokens.

A quick note about "wearing the colors":
Everybody goes around naked during their childhood. In most populations people acquire a first piece of clothing when they enter their teens. To "earn the colors" means to actually be free of wearing as much or as little clothing you want anytime you want and that happens in different moments of people's lives depending on their culture.
In many cultures people earn their colors when they reach adulthood. In some the colors are earned through rituals or after completing specific rites.
Most Illuminandia's populations earn the colors when they learn a craft. In such cases "the colors" are mostly referred to as those clothes that display symbols of your craft. Some members of noble families earn the colors as soon as the obtain part of their heredity. Usually this is the road to “fashion”.
There are exceptions to these "rules", for example during celebrations, festivals and cerimonies more or less everybody is allowed to wear whatever they want, although dressing in such occasions with something that is not a traditional dress is often frowned upon.
Here in Ansang (a little town on the northern part of the Namveti country) locals usually get the colors in different moments during their teens, de facto skipping the one-clothes-item step altogether.
