Learned a couple more things about digital coloring today. First, that you can get some interesting and more targeted or subtle color shifts using Hue/Saturation adjustment layers if you set them to a specific Blend mode; for instance, I got to the final colors from these original colors using a +90 Hue adjustment layer on Overlay blending mode, 53% opacity:

The other thing that was hammered home was that I can't rely on tweaking color shifts repeatedly by blending together the individual bitmapped results of different color operations, because layering/merging multiple copies of same basic bitmap multiplies the rounding compromises of the color gradients, causing the individual colors making up those gradients to start to separate in weird ways, leaving, say, weirdly colored streaks across one's background. Bleh. So at first I had like four different compressed and bitmapped Hue blend results stacked on each other, but that got kinda bandy.

Hm that could work! Actually I *do* still need to work out the precise details of how she's going to get access to him. Guess I'll have to do some writing tomorrow, psh.
