Disqus brought me here from another comic. Love this, love everyone in it, and really love the drawing style in this scene. Is there a reason you chose these colors for Emmie and Amie? Other than visual appeal?

I would love to say I had a cool symbolic reason for the colour choice for Emmie and Amie, but well… green and red have major symbolic meanings in this story, and there just aren't that many other colours…

Also Amie is sad and so she's blue?

I'm sorry! Visual punning! It happen sometimes!
