    mmm… maybe I’m the only one, but… In my old screen I wasn’t able to notice this, but in my new laptop I’m able to see little parts of colors that doesn’t seem to match… like “patches” of color. Here I can see them in Jhalm’s veil, they look like dark blue instead of black. There are other pages I noticed this (most of those patches are just greyer than the usual black you use in the comic).

  2. Slarpy says:

    I see the blue patches too!

  3. wombasaurus says:

    Lica…are you saying that you see the Darkness Shining? Uhm….

  4. Archangel Beth says:

    *starestarestare* O_O I see the darkness shining too! Er, the blue veil patches! Huh!

    Well, now we can intuit why the fully hooded have their eyes sewn shut; perhaps as seers they see too much otherwise.

    Jhalm getting to be a hero is… interesting.

  5. Domino says:

    *eyelash flutter, falsetto voice* my hero. 😀 lol

  6. Beacon80 says:

    That’s actually somewhat common on certain types of screens (usually on laptops) They hande #000000 (i.e. perfect black) differently than they handle colors that are ALMOST perfect black. Oddly enough, this makes perfect black a bit LIGHTER than almost perfect black, so the patches you’re seeing are probably #000000, while the stuff around it is something like #010102

  7. jursamaj says:

    Beacon80: No. In fact the black is #000000. The blue is #010123. It is in fact very nearly the only color in the picture that isn’t a pure gray (there’s a nearly perfect #101011.)

    On close examination, the blue was clearly used to erase something at a late stage.

  8. Eagle0600 says:

    Yes, I see that too. Definitely blue. I don’t need to do any numbers to see that; it’s very clear.

  9. Rowanmdm says:

    Ah, I don’t see any blue. I feel left out.

  10. Mani says:

    The phrase “a soldier of too many gods” has always been one of my favorite pieces of flavor in this comic.

  11. Sammi says:

    Don’t need any gods? I suspect Jhalm’s going to eat those words.

  12. Sildraug says:

    A ‘soldier of too many gods’ is still a SOLDIER. Which means good training with a blade. Cue the beatdown.

  13. Tindi says:

    I KNEW there was a reason I kind of liked him, despite himself.

  14. the real Mani says:

    Mani.. O_o… that’s my name give it back! >:(

    p.s. My name is really Mani and I’m not the same person… if you think that… stop thinking that!

  15. Murasaki says:

    The best Seers are blind.

  16. LordofAges says:

    Back two pages ago, I was thinking “Hey, that looks like the entrance to the barracks” which leads to “Isn’t that where all the warrior monks are?” Yeah, I TOTALLY saw this coming…

  17. Lica says:

    *Curled up in fetal position* Black mother pass us by, turn your face away from…um, uh… ah yes! I left that comment a long time ago, sorry for not coming back to see the answers, guys.

    jursamaj: That’s what i thought too, perhaps Ursula’s monitor was not well calibrated at the time and did not showed the difference between the two colors, so she ended up using the dark blue as if it was black whithout noticing. That happened to me too, my old monitor was way too dark calibrated, when i saw all my old designs in my laptop i sadly discovered many of the colors i used weren’t the colors i thought they were. *facepalm*…sigh, i need a pantone color guide.

    Rowanmdm: Don’t worry, that only means you’re the saner of the group 😉

    Mani: I agree

  18. Mani says:

    I was about to say that I love the phrase “soldier of too many gods,” but then I noticed that I’d already said it earlier.

    And, uh, since it apparently requires clarifying now:

    This is the same Mani that made the first “Mani” post on this page.

    And while I can’t claim to be real or not, I can say that Mani is indeed my name. And that this is the first time I’ve met anyone else with that name who was not a long-dead zoroastrian priest.

  19. werepixi says:

    Called it!!

  20. WJS says:

    Ha, of course Murai sleeps in the veiled barracks. Yet another reason it was stupid to let them go earlier.
