That last panel was really the worst to color. I really am not good with characters who are visually layered on top of one another. I’m not sure how to control the focus on the image–making sure that Jekyll and Jasper and all the other Lodgers don’t just merge into a mess of details and overly-mechanical-looking lines.

In this arena storyboarding is much easier. You can just lower the opacity on the background characters and leave it to the art team to figure out what the final image is going to look like. I like being my own art team sometimes, but never ever when crowds are involved.
