Molly Blue 93

By cloudmonet
I used the "posterize" function, with about 20 colors, in the area of the fire crystal glow, to control the "posterizing" effect of creating a 256-color PNG, which has a small file size, and no JPEG artifacts, but tends to contour-line smooth color transitions. The chalk brush is one way I can get around this. Sometimes PNG dithering works, but sometimes it creates artifacts. If I posterize first, I can make sure the contours are exactly where I want them. I first used this technique on page 89 for the moonlit creek.

Update: February 11 2009. I changed the background behind the barn and Kohimu in the first panel. You can't see what I was showing before from there.
