I’m pleased to announce that, as of today’s page, Our World will be presented in living color! Colors are being done by Tony G. (Ustudios), who also does coloring for Mastergodai’s comics. Those of you with especially long memories may remember that the previous version of the comic was in color from 2010 to 2011, but Kuurion eventually found that grayscale shading was faster. Since then, we’d dabbled with the idea of switching back, but hadn’t been able to do so until now. If you like the change, please consider donating to our Patreon to help cover costs. EDIT: Some of you have noticed that the comic is a smaller size than usual. We’ve fixed it now.

Very nice in colors, but … why the smaller format?

Agreed. It makes it a pain to color when it’s smaller, too. Course you can zooooom and all that good stuuuuff (still would have to zoom at a larger format to color) but meh, not our baby. We just read it. :p Still look nice though. Meh, I’m just a humble graphic designer.

Looking at the text, it tells me that this image is probably downscaled from a bigger original, maybe the usual 720x1080px, to this 521x781px; I initially tought was a “weight” matter but, if this is the solution, they gone waaay too far, as the last B&W was 363kB and this one just 124kB. Maybe just a mere error?

WAH! The colors! My eyes are burning! They can not take the sensory overload!!! D:

But yeah, colors are nice. I’m not used to them, but nice. 🙂
Also again poor Alex is hiding behind everyone in shame and poor Pete for seeing his sister naked. 😛

I really enjoy the colors and I hope it keeps but if the format is smaller, then the conversations will be shorter. You can get more pieces to the puzzle in a larger format.
Also, poor Art. He’s seen his sister naked and now she’s clinging to him but at the same time she’s trying to be affectionate towards Art. That face, he wants to say something but doesn’t want hurt her feelings. You guys think she’s taking advantage of Art or was she really startled for real? Let me know. Also, what were they GAH!ing at?

Well first of all: If you look closely at their and their hand’s positions you can see that it was Art who grabbed her sister’s hand. This means Art still tries to protect his sister and not that his sister is clinging onto him. 🙂

Second: When they left the “train” they stepped onto a platform that started to raise since there’s a big K-chunk in panel 3. That was the thing that startled them as normal if one doesn’t know about it. 😀

Also I’m not sure if this small format has any advantages at all. Unless if it’s easier for Kuu and Usto to work with it then it’s just a hell of a horrible strain on the eyes. I can barely make the text out at times. 🙁

I kind of like how she’s recognizing that he’s being nice, even though she’s still mad at him for rejecting her. They have hope of a “normal” (or as close as those two will ever get 🙂 ) relationship.

I’m not convinced, Gaboris, that one can conclusively prove that he grabbed her. It’s ambiguous to me.

And yeah, nice colors.

I agree that she’s still angry at Art. Now I wonder, with the secret “work” she does, is she a revenge type? We know her skills will come in handy against Vortex but if she is the Revenge type then what kind? Kill Bill or Gone Girl revenge? On second thought, I rather have her rorgive, flirt or whatever with Art as long as she doesn’t extract revenge on him. Vortex will get it soon. You agree?

As I said. Just look at their positions. 🙂

From our perspective:
– Art is on the right side of the panel and Lina’s on the left..
– Their hands are clearly a right hand from the right that’s holding the left one from the left.
– Lina’s left hand and Art’s right hand are next to each other on the next panel.

Boom. Prove me wrong. :3

Sweet Colors! These colors look fantastic! Then again, that’s no surprise from our very own @UStudios ! Great job man!

Now, I may be wrong here, but if I’m reading the body language correctly in the panels featuring Art and his sister, it would appear that Art actually grabbed her sister’s hands whenever the elevator started to move upward. From her reaction, I imagine she knows it’s out of brother love, like he’s still trying to protect her.

And just leave it to Pete to just break the ice so fast!

oh my god why is everybody seeing it this way I had to twist and contort myself to get reference for these hands drawn correctly and it’s STILL not clear T.T
Lina grabbed Art’s hand, art squeezes back. The hand on the left is lina’s hand, art’s hand on the right.

I know it wasn’t the intent… but the timing of the first colored page and the characters reactions in the strip create a 4th wall breaking moment… almost like they stepped out of the shuttle and then freaked out at the sudden appearance of color in their world…

Oh? Does the prince have a younger brother, and an older sister?

Also, awesome new banner art up there!

All right, we get to see Drayven’s family and they are certainly beautiful canines, hope to see more of them in the future. And I gotta tell ya, you guys have the most intriguing and fantastic story ever. I absolutely love reading it.

Man…I must say that the amount of detail in the background is really amazing in this strip, especially with the shadows! And all these wolves look more wolf-like in this strip too.

Also, I’m getting the whole vibe of old school versus new school!
