Or it turns out she is Beret Guys sister and thought Cueball meant the interior design of her apartment. 21:08, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

From my own image development work, the 3D effect of the hair in the comic can be achieved one of two ways. A layer consisting of the hair must exist on its own and then be duplicated on a new layer. The coloured layer must be in front of the noncoloured (original) layer:

Simple method: desaturate (and darken as necessary) the original layer (its Z order causes it to be behind the coloured layer), offsetting it as desired. Then merge.
Emboss method: desaturate and emboss the old layer (it should be behind the coloured layer as in the Simple method), and set the opacity of the new layer to 50%. Merge both layers together - as the desaturation and 50% opacity results in a 50% desaturation of the merged layer, adjust the saturation to restore the colour.

And then, it turns out that the woman in the comic is a werewolf and was talking about her fur during the full moon (no I don't think it is, I'm just being silly). -Pennpenn 01:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

I think she's slapping him down by talking about interior decorating instead of hair color. Whether her drapes, carpet and upholstery match doesn't actually matter. Jelsemium (talk) Jelsemium

I agree with this: I think she's deliberately side-stepping his crass question. L-Space Traveler (talk) 13:19, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

The upholstery is her skin, duh. Ya know, like leather chairs and such. Psychoticpotato (talk) 13:42, 23 May 2024 (UTC)
