Played around with darkness and coloring on this page; I think it turned out okay. The realization that I didn’t need to color in all the background characters, and that it would make things look better, not worse, was a bit of a revelation.

I’m also relieved that Kawunei’s steam-blade doesn’t look that bad. I mean, it looks more like a blade made of steam than a blade made of, say, snow. Or marshmallows. So that’s good.
