EDIT: Updated the telepathy balloons to look closer to the hand-drawn ones from earlier chapters. Thanks for the feedback on them!
Since I’m adding speech balloons in Clip Studio Paint rather than Photoshop this chapter, I wanted to come up with a nicer (and easier) way to do balloons for Morphus telepathy. What do you think? It should also be easier to distinguish Morphus-Companion telepathy from Morphus-anybody-else telepathy in this style — you can see a tentative example of the Morphus-Companion balloons in this Webtoon update, when Kip is talking with Cathrine. I wanted the Companion telepathy balloons to feel more like thought balloons than speech bubbles, since their connection is closer to sharing thoughts than to speaking with an outside party.
