idk it was weird to colour

rinse the blood off my space toga

“Can I see? Wait, there’s no shafts? it just.. grows in two colours?”
“Er. Not exactly.”
“The other humans’ plumage isn’t near this bright. Are you a born leader?”
“HAH. no.”
“It signifies caste, then? Or a mating display?!”
“Not even close. I went out and paid an artisan to apply a harsh chemical to rip out my natural colouration, then apply this artificial one.”
“That sounds.. unpleasant.”
“Yeah it burned like a <<dog?>>, my scalp was tender for days after.”
“If it doesn’t create any advantages, what’s the point?”
“Ah, it just looks <<rutting>> <<cold>>. What other reason do we need?”
“..humans are weird. .. .. .. do you think it would work on feathers?”

Sorry I know this is TRACED. So if enough people feel iffy about it (PM me if you do), I’ll take it down.

This is what I plan to do as “screencaps”. Idk I just don’t like colouring over the manga (it just makes it look weird imo) and how traditional it looks. So I figured to just trace over everything to clean it up a little.

If Izumo in the cute little cafe maid outfit was animated… I think this is what it would look like.

The colour scheme was taken from the next chapter’s coloured cover.

I lie, this was not for my pride.
I know this was my time.

I was listening to Handshake by Two Door Cinema Club and I can only think of Taco talking to Mic tbh
also!! my marker ran out halfway through colouring Soap, so I’m sorry if it’s uneven!
