Partly coloured version of the new art for Page 62 of The Rite of Serfdom. The characters are coloured based on the established character continuity. At this point, I am not entirely sure what to do with the colouring for the backgrounds, but they are greytoned anyway. By adding large flat areas of colour that overlap the line art, I can fill up gaps in the line art and keep things manually. It also helps keeping the background more or less consistent and prevents over-colouring.

If I were to colour a page from a completely new comic, the background colours would be more integrated with the character colours, but in these redrawn pages, character continuity has to be maintained, so their skin tones and costumes are coloured first.
