These guards were Victor’s idea, but they really remind me of the mask guys in Super Mario Bros 2 that come after you as long as you’re holding a key. They scared the crap out of me as a kid.

With the coloring I’ve been doing in these past few pages, I’ve been trying to communicate the lighting but also how warm it is in this area… (it was cooler in the vault on the previous page, hence why the colors reverted to something a bit more normal). I’ll keep trying new stuff as the comic goes on; I figure after 300 pages you guys all know what everybody’s “real” colors are so I don’t have to keep using the exact same swatches in every comic. It’s also more fun this way! Please give me feedback on what you think works and what doesn’t. Coloring and color scheme selection was never something that came naturally to me.
