uberlentil:
Color!
Not entirely random this time. Practicing for an upcoming chapter that will really need color, but also just playing around with the acrylic tool in Sai.

Incuro:
Lol pathetic


Fox (Guest):
True, but Melody wouldn't be melody otherwise.


Shard:
The second I saw "Toys" I had a feeling...


Tab (Guest):
I don't like the way this looks. Cartoony anime characters don't translate well into a more three dimensional style. Winter Melody is currently my favorite webcomic, but this has always been my number one complaint about it: the frequent style-shifts.


uberlentil:
@Tab
That's one thing that will probably never go away completely. I get bored and there's so many ways to draw things! Charcoal and watercolor are on my list of things to try too :P


Cumin:
I'll do what I can to help reign uberlentil in as much as possible :p


WhiteWitch (Guest):
It looks great! Sort of dreamy-looking. True, I wouldn't want it like this all the time, but the WM Spirit is still there. Artists aren't machines; so be polite and get used to variety!


DV8_Killer:
wow, love the colouring style 0.0 so vivid

lol at Melody, really good with the finger trap thing, like the guy in the background just killing himself laughing like i did XD im crying.


uberlentil:
@Cumin
You will FAAAAAAAAIL! BA HA HA HA! >:D

Actually I doubt I'll be doing it like this again. It took at least 6 hours >_>


Cumin:
But really, with lip definition like in panel 4, time is no object.

Oh wait, it's never an object, just an abstract physical property. It might also be a goddess.


pat15:
I know how to solve that puzzle thing because of Dexter's lab xD


Cocytus:
mm, such a marvelous and intricate trap, i don't know how to... ... oh... wow >.>


Alex (Guest):
The shopkeeper laughing hysterically in the background just makes it all that much more awesome. XD


WanderTheWoods:
Ooo color!
And style-shift!
I still like the first style best though...


HaKu10:
I never realized how thick Melody's eyebrows are. :3


Parry (Guest):
Love this style of art!


Kay-nyan (Guest):
@Cumin: goddess, huh...

...

Time maidens. It needs to happen.


Alex (Guest):
@Kay-nyan

Only if the Time Shrine is bigger on the inside...


Night (Guest):
@Alex
And the maidens get to have sonic screwdrivers. :3


SevyTehSavvy:
Gonna half-agree with people here.
I wouldn't like to see this all the time.
But I do like the style changes.
... Actually, it might be because I like the style changes I wouldn't want WM like this all the time.

Didn't really think much of it until now, but FLCL is coming to mind.
And FLCL was effin' amazing.

@Decifer
*GASP* You don't know how charcoal can be used for drawing?!... Granted, it's likely not the black lump you're thinking of. Most charcoal I know comes in a pencil-like form. I use it for my life drawing class! Xd
Of course... I'm not sure how well it will end if it's used to draw a WM comic... >>
By the way, this coloring method was... interesting. Neat, but I agree with all the others that I wouldn't wanna see it like this ALL the time. XD


John Doe (Guest):
I think the colour style kind of ruined the joke for me... Even though it is pretty.


Solar (Guest):
Yes, Melody is very much the type to get caught in a finger trap.
That's awesome!

I agree with the comment of it being dreamy-looking. Was actually my first thought when I saw it - wondering how is it we're entering a dream sequence suddenly.


Funkyleetdood (Guest):
Gotta say I disagree with people who don't like the style of this page, I think it along with all the other style changes look awesome. But if we all agreed on everything it would be a pretty boring world :)


SwiftAusterity:
I don't dislike the art style persay, but Melody's eyebrows kind of look odd in it.

I know they're supposed to be big but they're kind of lost in the sea of her hair at this point.


Miera Sheighani (Guest):
XD hahahaha, awesome comic, as always! :3 I have to agree, the style is a touch different, but hey; as long as you're having fun and don't burn out again it's all good =^.^=

is it just me, or does Melody's eyebrows....SHRINK....when she's being oh-so-serious about being stuck as she watches Moth oh-so-carefully get her fingers out?

and I never expected red eyes....with her extra magic, I half think she's not all human.... o_0 lol


and on time maidens; if they get screwdrivers, do they also get "magical" phonebooths? although if they don't have phones I suppose that's a touch problematic... :D

.....TARDIS-carts? ^^;;




..........Moth almost needs a sweatdrop in that last panel...that or I watch WAY too much anime XD


Phenylalanine (Guest):
I have to say the frequent shifts in art style are one of the things I like bout this comic. It shows your are still growing as artists. Never be afraid to grow and learn.

Even Penny Arcade tries different art styles occasionally.


Golux (Guest):
Thank you for the style shifts, it's part of the reason I read the comic. Melody would find the unchanging sameness of a hardwired style Boooorringgg.... and would probably leave.
