Speaking of Panel 1, with Fire laying his head on Angel like that, I wanted to ask: has anyone else ever used their dog as a pillow? Or have I just outed myself as a really shitty pet owner?

So, after getting some suggestions for color correcting morning with purples and blues, I re-tried color correcting this page. The original can now be found in my stash here:

Is it better or worse now?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
I really like how panel 1 turned out, but the rest of the page really frustrates me. I still haven't figured out a good way to color correct for sunrise yet and I'd appreciate suggestions.

I mentioned this in a journal earlier, but since I'm sure a lot of people missed it, I wanted to say again: this comic now has its own sub-forum on PXR. If you can, check it out sometime! (

Sorry replies took so long! First SJ was down, then I started getting super busy, and ugh, I just haven't had time!

@Nekomata-chan: Haha, he is cute isn't he? About the colors though, I a lot of people recommended cool colors, so I went with that. What do you think of the new colors?

@Melody-Pika: My reaction exactly!

@SilverLunarwing and @the being: So I went with purple color correction as you guys suggested. Do you think it's better than it was before?

@Syogren: Yeah. I wish real pillows were that fluffy.

@Lady Darkrina: I'll give her one for you! *hugs*

@Luigi_96: She's referring to the alt-text I believe.

@Missalice3: well, we needed to get back to them eventually, right?

@Soulstormraptor: Well, a little happiness is a good balancer.

@SilverEspeonEsper: Why so? Was your dog mean or frail?

@Killerat: Thanks! I was really worried about it TBH.

@Morzone: Yeah, but sometimes a white lie or two can really help calm someone down. Brutal honesty isn't always the best policy.

@Shadow-Charmeleon: Indeed, which may or may not play into the story later... ;)

@SpeedBoostTorchic: For sunrise, I suggest warm- but soft colors for the tone. That's just me though.

And Fire looks adorable in Panel 5. xD

Great page as always, I'm sure we all think it looks fantastic even if you're not so sure. ^u^

Well, Eevees ARE fluffy. Can't blame Fire for sleeping on Angel's tail.

Awesome page as always, and I really need to check SJ more regularly.

Haha, I like the last two panels best, but they're all good lookin' panels to me!

I haven't done much in the way of sunrises myself. :S But I think some purples could help, haha.

Aww, they both look so adorable and I honestly want to give Angel a hug right now :c

@Melody-Pika: Aren't Eevees technically foxes?

Another cute comic, but now we'll get more focused on our heroes, yay. ^_^

I was always too scared to use my dog as a pillow, but I probably would have done it if I hadn't been.

The first panel is good yes, but the rest looks great to me!

@Melody-Pika: I use my dog as a pillow too!!!!!

A good pokemon
At least Angel is honest, much better than someone who would pretend to have a plan and then fail when they really needed one.

Since she is pretty much the only one he has spent time with and she has been guiding him to survival the entire time, it is gonna be hard for Fire to not look up at Angel and have high opinions of her. |D

I like the new colors. The reason for me preferring warm colors for sunrise is mostly just experience.

As a band geek, I was used to being on the field before sunrise- and I always noticed they were warmer and softer than sunsets. Sunsets often have more vibrant colors that, eventually, fade into cooler colors as night approaches.

But of course, from what I hear, sunset/sunrise varies from location to location- so my view on sunrise colors is different. I've just always imagined them with softer color schemes due to the ones I've seen while sitting next to the band field before rehearsal. The mornings with lots of clouds had a tendency to have brighter colors with more oranges and yellows... just as sunsets here have more pinks/purples when there are clouds.

But where I live, most days are cloudless and devoid of any hope of rain.


That said, the above page feels like a sunrise- mostly cause the colors are soft like one. In the end, I guess it's personal preference for the colors in sunrise/sunset in art. Do what you feel suits the scene best!

Conflicted feelings!
When I read this comic, I enjoy it so much. But knowing it will only end once they all are dead was just too much for me. While I read this comic it makes me wish I could just fix everything, just reach my hand in and fix everything. And knowing that I can't do anything makes it that much more depressing. I just wish... I wish there was another way. :(

@SpeedBoostTorchic: Indeedy. The fluffiness would break the scales.

My dog would make a good pillow, but she's not allowed on the sofas or in bedrooms :(
