    Looks like she's still crowdfunding her move-out though.

    Is there anything in her life she doesn't crowdfund?

    I thought it was a yellow hexagon? Simple and geometric suits Big Ears over some big... wings?

    Which kind of clashes with Names being the party member with an outsider body part IME. If you wanted to update it to appear more 'angelic' I'd have begun with a halo...

    It was definitely yellow bricks, like a wall around him. It really fit Ears, showing him as steadfast and protective. Now we have generic angelic wings, I guess?

    I assume Elli's trying to go for a kind of opposite between Ears being angelic and Complains being demonic, but it doesn't make much sense since these two don't have any story between them that would make use of that.

    Well, Ears did use the angel horn to heal his ears, so I guess that could have an affect on his IME.

    This, and I can easily see ears going some sort of angelic evolution route just because of how he is generally portrayed so much like how the shield of wonder or whatever it was is slowly turning complains into a demon, the horn chunk is slowly turning ears into a celestial.

    Yeah, that's certainly where the new IME is coming from. I wasn't confused where the change came from, I am disappointed that Elli is changing the IME from something specific and representative of Ear's character into something generic that mainly references his physical form.

    Also, both of these transformations should be portrayed as negative. Canonically, both demons and angels are pretty much the same thing in the Goblins world. The only difference is that demons feed on negative emotions and angels on positive ones. Angels don't do good things because they are great people or especially moral, they do good things because they literally have to in order to gain sustenance. Source: https://www.goblinscomic.com/blog/thuntonian-lore-1
    But neither angels nor demons have a soul. So if you transform into one of them, you will eventually lose your soul. That's not a good thing. Complains even acknowledges that when his transformation begins.
    Incidentally, this also means the angel shouldn't have cared one bit that Ears was her "child" (which is a bollocks argument anyway), but consistency was never a strong suite of Goblins...

    So Plush literally gets hard when Ears touches him? Also, does the blue part mean that he's also part angel, or it's just how he looks?

    When the page is colored, he's grey with blue stripes, with a divide approximately where the grey-blue line is in what we see. I'm wondering if, when this does get colored in, how we're going to see the handprint.

    It would be a lot easier to tell exactly what is happening if it was colored properly.

    Huh? Elli has been coloring in the pages, she's just taken to uploading the black-and-white versions early.

    (Not that it's ever been particularly easy for me to follow what's happening in the gruesome combat scenes she loves so much, but that's because I glaze over at extended "thrilling" combat scenes. I had the same problem following R. A. Salvatore's writing, back when I tried to.)

    It's been what, a month since the previous page was uploaded? Still no color, but we have another colorless (mostly) page.

    I feel the chances Ellie manages to color the backlog grows smaller and smaller with every new page...

    She's uploaded...either four or five...colorless pages, and since she has she's colored either two or three of them. Yes, she's trying to create an image of working faster than she actually does by showing the world her half-done pages, but treating there being two black-and-white pages up at the same time as her switching to pure black-and-white is unjustified catastrophizing.

    I know, my Bad. But she doesnt have a good track record of seeing Things through. You can still find unfinished pages here and there and that's only the Comic itself. Still waiting for Tempts fate.

    I think the reason might be pretty simple: rushing in an unfinished page right before August is over means the Patreon money gets paid one month earlier than if the image had been posted in September with full colouring.

    (I didn't check how Patreon works, but I remember tweets talking about the necessity of finishing a page before month's end).

    Looks to me like that's just stone. Getting touched by Big Ears has the same effect as the flowers.

    It's a contrived reason for forcing character interactions, but at least it's better than the rape curse.

    I am curious about how the magic in place could affect the battle. Kin and MM actually have an overwhelming advantage. They could tell Bowst "you are dead" and he'd be dead. EDIT: oh wait, if they need to touch the door, it would be a bit more difficult.

    I presume Kin will use it to say 'we're all friends' if they don't need to touch the door.
