I’d like to do more panels like panel 3 in the future. I understand it’s kind of a manga thing–removing the background and having the characters talk to each other in blank space, or against a whimsical pattern–but, I think it’ll be good for me to draw more of these because, well, not every panel has to have a real background! Sometimes drawing the background in every panel can actually look cluttered or claustrophobic.

 

Plus, weird lighting/color changes are fun for me, and I need more excuses to insert them into the story.
