Why thank you very much for the feedback Superrider14! 8-)

With regards to the lighting on the backgrounds - what colours would you suggest for a bright mid-day?

So far my timeline for the day with Chapter 09 goes like this: Pages 01-03 - Early morning (sun is just about to rise), Pages 05-06 - Mid-day (when the sun is fully up) with blue skies, cloudless).

Page 06 is all the way mid-day. I changed the colours in the middle and bottom panels because I felt lighting would be different if you're in town - light bounces off from objects such as buildings, trees and people hence giving off a different colour right?

Any help on this would be much appreciated buddy!

Heya Syaming-li! I didn't expect a critique from you and boy am I very pleased. :) Thanks for the technical feedback on the way this page was coloured. Definitely there is a problem with the time of day being portrayed on this page - seems like the afternoon at some of the panels when it's suppose to be mid-day (where it's bright and sunny). I'm slowly in the process of fixing up the colours and shading so thanks for all the helpful advice!! = ) *thumbs up*

Another thing I will add - it's such a bloomin' challenge to get the colours right when your characters are in a primary colour itself! XXD Humans don't have bright and vibrant colours in their skin (unless their costumes have colours to that effect)! :D It's funny I only notice this until you mentioned about how Ruby's red didn't go well with the bright green...

It seems that I've taken a tougher road in my journey to improve on my colouring! X_X; Thanks again for your opinion on the page. ;)

Thanks Evan for your feedback and insight to the shading and colour elements of the page! I totally agree about the mood setting/time of day colours being all muddled up and confusing. I'll see what I can do to fix that up. :)
