Apologies for the April Fool’s prank yesterday. :)

I’m trying a little different art style for this Tale, inspired in part by the courtroom sketches you see on TV, because cameras aren’t allowed in court. I’ve always liked this approach to drawing: starting with a medium background and adding both light and dark, instead of just adding darker tones to white paper. It fits the morally gray tone of the story too… but that’s getting ahead of things.
