I had originally picked out markers for this page, but decided to just do some textures first with a set of colored pencils I haven't touched in years- a huge range set of 150 pencils as opposed to the set of 48 I'd arbitrarily been limiting myself to the past few years- and when I got partway through, I realized I kinda loved it? So like, for the first time in the history of Loud Era, here's a page done entirely without marker.

I'm not planning to change the way I do the whole comic or anything, but pages like this may come up again now and then if the mood fits. Here I think it does a decent job of conveying the warmth and comfort of Joseph's house/room. IDK!!!

I always love it when talented artists make me remember comics don't need to be Marvel/DC type coloring to bring out the brilliance in a comic.

@JFP: What an incredibly kind thing to say. Thank you for your compliment. :) :)

@mitchellbravo: I love how the red, purple, orange combo in the first panel conveys the setting sun scenery. It contrasts nicely with the whiteness of the last three panels. The whiteness of those panels expresses youthful innocence when showing how alone he is without his family to support him. I hope he doesn't get depressed because deep down this is what he wanted; to be making his decisions on his own.

You're welcome regarding the compliment. Hoping the compliment inspires you to keep making art like your art inspires me to start making art.

I do love the warmness of this page, both the sunset and the room. And ouch, awkward, I understand Tony had his reasons for quitting (and it's good to quit sometimes!) but to Joseph it would be "I can't even get hired and you throw a job away?!" situation, wouldn't it...
