The most important vote you'll ever pwn

All Adventures with Play strips are made by taking World of Warcraft screenshots, fading out the background behind the main actors, adding thousand-monkeys-on-a-typewriter style dialogue and doing some post-processing. I've been experimenting with different levels of background fade and am still trying to figure out the right balance.

A heavy amount of fade (for example in Vol.2 Ep. 3) really pops the characters visually while evoking the ennui that you should rightfully feel after playing the game for sixteen hours straight. A light amount of fade (for example in Vol.3 Ep. 3), preserves more of the colors and feel of the game. Help me decide how much fade is just right by voting in the new poll. To the sidebar!

Update: My free poll-hosting service seems to be going up and down randomly. Oh well.

i say less fade, it just blends together, and color is good.

I'd think it'd be best with no background fading at all, but that's just me.

I'd like to be difficult and say that for some of the strips, lots of fading has precisely the right effect, as with the Blightcaller ones (that's precisely how it feels to be in the Plaguelands), whereas a Stranglethorn beach should capture the tropical colour explosion to make sense.

So I'd say continue precisely as you have been and use your judgement on a case by case basis. :)
