As on the previous page, I roughed in some fat slabs of color to help clarify the action. The final coloring job won't be so bold and garish, but this is basically how I approach color: the Inventor's realm will be sickly yellow and green, Lillian's home and shop will be warm earth tones, the Robot in general--and nighttime in particular--will be cool purple and gray. Color helps tell the story: purple on the Inventor's monitor tells us he's watching the Robot's point of view; orange in the exterior windows tells us we're looking into Lillian's apartment. Absence of color is important too: the ZZAP of the Robot's antennas, the sparkle of light on discarded glass.
