I can’t believe this is up to page 7 already. Where does the time go? ^_^
ANYwho, the first thing anyone’s going to notice about this page is all of the random uncolored students in the background. This was initially done on purpose so I could have random folks in the background without making unimportant people stand out too much. I ultimately dropped this idea when I decided to make all of the other students potentially useable characters (see here - [link]
), so this is actually the only page that does this. I meant to go back and fix the coloring, but got sidetracked with my eagerness to move on with the story beyond here.
So, I’m just gonna go with the excuse that it’s symbolic; yeah, symbolic... that's the ticket! Rain is trying to pretend they’re not there to make herself less self-conscious. So rather than seeing classmates normally, she sees these almost transparent people. “They’re not real; they can’t be. No need to be self-conscious.” But then she enters her classroom to find two classmates (and future important characters as of next Monday) in color, as her mantra starts to wear off and she begins worrying just how difficult the coming year is going to be for.
That’s not bad actually, for having just made that up now. Significant, meaningful, and totally believeable. I’m kinda proud of that. Clever symbolism as an excuse for laziness - boo ya.
