Here’s my latest comic: https://inhumaneresourcescomic.com/#/panel/430.
Every draft of this story has had Julius be really into controlling things with hand gestures. In some drafts, he paints his nails neon yellow so that it’s easier for a camera to read his hand position.
I didn’t do that for this comic because early on, I decided I didn’t want to draw fingernails.
There’s a subtle reference to the Depths here with the line “you’re not a cuddly sea otter”.
