Heyo people. Zen again.

I'm experimenting with ways in which I can spend less time on the comic, and it occurred to me that things should look perfectly okay in black and white. This is the result. If you absolutely hate it and want colour back at all costs, now is the time to say so!

The brushwork on this comic is unusually clumsy though. I have to apologise for that. I spent the better part of this week making a mask (and an outfit) for a tea party held this afternoon. ^_^;; Everyone turned out in their best, so it was like the lolita event of the year. Nothing like a group meet for us rufflebutts to amp up the vampiric sparkle!

I know it sucks to color, but it looks better.
Also if you wish to spend less time on the comic try a diferent style of coloring. Like just solids :3

Im okay with b/w, but maybe you could at least use some contrast like back in the first comics? I thought this was a sketch comic when I saw it because it looks so flat ^^ I do like the color, but ofcourse understan you have a life Zen aha C:

It does look better with colour. Leaving it as it is with the line work makes it look unfinished imo.

If you're starting to get sick of colouring, maybe try b&w or find someone to do the colours for you?

To be honest, I think it looks a lot better in color. ;_; A lot of the purpose of lolita-related things is, well, eye-candy. Almost literally.
But I think if you didn't have the time, you could just do solid colors instead of all the shading and stuff.

Thanks for responding, everyone. Colour it is! Sorry for making you guys do this.

I'm still experimenting, but hopefully the next comic will look better. This one seemed ok on its own in Photoshop, but it does look rather sodden when it's lined up against the others. :D I guess it's no turning back.
