There is, of course, no way for a rainbow to ever be visible when the light source is always directly overhead (not to mention being rod-shaped rather than a point source), hence Sam’s confusion (Juni combined the Hiero words meaning ‘rain’ and ‘arch’ with a containment-conjunctive).

Meanwhile, the deep-space background is blue with tinges of infrared (I took some artistic license), so blue- and red-shift look a bit counterintuitive, with the background appearing purple and cyan, respectively. This is actually correct for a relative velocity of 0.027c. Deriving this, as well as determining how long they’ve been accelerating in order to be at this speed having traveled only about ¼ of the way to the galactic core from Earth, is left as an exercise for the reader; show your work, and don’t forget to account for the Lorentz effect, the increase in mass due described by special relativity, and increase in drag due to the interstellar hydrogen pressure front while accounting for the ramscoop feed, as well as whatever theories of dark matter, spatio-temporal expansion, and quantum velocity you subscribe to.

Incidentally, I may have too much time on my hands.


That was brutal

Today’s Unity probably represents the longest time it’s taken me to color a comic in ages. And of course I doubt anyone even would notice the fiddly little details in the coloring without me pointing them out. I sure know how to spend my time effectively!

It has been a while since the August 14 coloring ordeal. And I didn’t spend nearly as much time as I could/should have on today’s comic but there you go.

Okay um, news news news. I only have one more Womble in the queue right now and I think I’m going to take a break from it (I have tons of ideas for it but I’m not inspired to draw any of them just yet). A new chapter of Unity is starting (insofar as I have chapters per se) and people might be confused or they might not be and maybe people will hate me for it but whatever, it’s my comic so nyah.

Also I just took a couple sips of my homemade vanilla-lime soda and it’s a bit weird. I think it needs more lime.


Oh and also Jazaaboo made this for me although I am not sure if she wants me linking to it since I guess it was just a quick sketch which is unfinished? Anyway she’s awesome.
