This was supposed to be the first panel.
It's a philosophical defeat. I tried to colour without outlines. But: epic fail.
I can't abandon them, my outlines, can't let go of them. I need well-defined outlines to work with, within whose limits I can operate. That's why I never liked water-colours, why I didn't like acrylic or oil colours: you have to let go of your outline and rely on the plane of colour. But if the lines begin to disappear under a layer of colour, I loose secureness: the rational order of the line begins to make room for the arbitrary chaos of colour.
Have to find another way.
