Quick repeat of post from late yesterday, and then it’s case closed (I hope):I guess it’s time to clear up the analysis and speculation about Fay’s recent chameleon impersonation. It was an error by the freelance colorist (that would be me) and the problem was addressed shortly after readers noticed it. But the busy people at GoComics are on crazy deadline all the time so uploading corrected files to the archives doesn’t always happen right away. If you look now you’ll see Fay consistently colored in past strips.There are three skin colors in the Luann color palette. TJ, Dez, Piro and Fay are the only ones using the middle tone. It’s an easy error to make because at certain angles the hues can be hard to differentiate on screen. Also, when checking my work, my focus is on making sure eyes aren’t filled in and that body parts have color and not just an unfilled area. Plus, it may be 3AM and I am scrambling to get Luann and 7 other strips in by the time GoComics people get to work. That’s it. I make mistakes from time to time and it’s often a reader comment that gets back to me, otherwise I’d never know. So thank you for your eagle eyes and helping with the Quality Control tasks.
