Paypal and Payoneer no longer work in my country, so I can't get money from Ko-fi, Gumroad, Buymeacoffe and ComicAd (the ad banners here).
The only tip jar I have left is Boosty. It accepts Paypal, all cards, any currency, then it converts it into rubles and sends to me. Boosty works the same way as Patreon + accepts one-time donations like Ko-fi and allows selling ebooks.

There are many real life examples of people who didn't become phychopatic killers and lead normal life even though they had sociopathic brain type (with significantly less grey matter in the anterior rostral prefrontal cortex and temporal poles, which leads to lack of empathy, a poor response to fear and distress and a lack of self-conscious emotions such as guilt or embarrassment). In the end, it's your free will that has the final say in what you become.

Why color? Because one of my Patrons asked me. With 1$/month subscription you can do this too :)


Aaugh, great page.

I have to admit that this page looks super impressive in color. I mean, clearly better than modern superhero comics.

Thanks :) I'm glad to hear that.
I feel so helpless when it comes to coloring. I don't have this natural feeling of what's good and what's not. This page's colors seem a bit... acidic to me. Even though a landscape photo I used for palette reference was fine and I liked it.

Acidic... first I was like "WHAT!??" But now having another look after you mentioned it, it's a bit heavy on the green-blue-violet range (do/did you mean that?) -- BUT! That's IMHO totally fine here, with the general "blue" mood and things being discussed on this page - and... Rita "being a light" in front of a cool/cold blue (still having a little blue/green ambient light in her hair and on her cheek and her neck - vs. Jan being surrounded by / "submerged into" a "wild" green, fully accepting it, embracing it - there is still light in Jan's hair but he doesn't embrace/use that.

Remember when you asked in the forum about b/w (or greyscale) vs. color? This page is a good example, it made me stare at it and... delve into the colorful details (not only the faces, the water lilies, too), much longer than the greyscale images. It still does, the 2nd and 3rd time I see it.
(Nothing wrong with flat coloring, but it doesn't... capture me like a coloring job like this does - I just checked a few pages of Tangled River for comparison - nope, it totally doesn't.)

(And now I'm out of words for commenting more.)

Yes, oversaturated colors not being in harmony with each other is what I meant by "acidic". I'm glad to know coloring did its job though. I wanted it to add some meaning to the page, emphasize the differences and similarities between Rita and Jan and so on.
