I didn't put speech bubbles on frame 6.
I don't think that's a bad thing.
Well, it can be, because a lot of the time when I don't put things in speech bubbles it means it is a thought. Well, this isn't thoughts. Should I bubble them?

I posted that question a while ago (like, August 2013). Mostly due to spacing issues and bubbles looking really dumb in some places, like, text bomb pages, I will be using non-bubbled text relatively often. As I got better at providing art queues to support it, there is less concern in my mind about the whole thing.

So sometimes it will be thoughts, sometimes it will be speech, and sometimes it will be her trying to say something but nothing coming out so it is kinda like her talking to herself. Thank you all for the feedback!

bubbling them seems good for consistency but it still reads as speech to me regardless (maybe I've mistakenly read thoughts as characters speaking to themselves before though)

I understand why Annie is partially in colour, and with a red background aura, but why does Vic also have a red coloured background aura ?

I think red auras are angry.. and they are angry at each other, that's how I saw it.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Like Guest said, they are angry at each other. Auras have been used in the past to indicate feelings, especially when I was worse at art. Annie has had a blue aura when she feels at peace and like herself. Lexi and Julie have had yellow (angelic) halos when they have been like family. Sometimes people will have a grey aura when they feel particularly defeated. And yes, when someone is literally radiating anger, they have had red auras. Mitch did a few times during arguments - often to the point where the two participants end up staring at each other with that thin interminable line of rage.

It happens less frequently as the comic matures and I learned that whole human expression thing.
