20140209, 16:43 – A page that’s not gonna win any beauty contests! Xand fails snark, West MIGHT BE FORESHADOWING WHO KNOWS I MEAN REALLY, and Raven mutters about things that may or may not come to pass while directly foreshadowing the fact that there’s gonna be some more talking in the near future. Good thing the Daedalus is about to pull a 180° – the bridge lighting ain’t doin’ no one any favors. ESPECIALLY ORNIX.
And he looked so awesome in hyperspace. I suppose this page evens that out.
For those of you who missed it, the last line of the previous page was “I think that’s the first time I came early,” which makes the top four panels a joke about male sexuality and either Xand’s knowledge thereof or Xand’s awful sense of humor. Maybe neither. Possibly both.
Next week marks the end of the buffer – I hope to at least have new pages rendering by then. As structured, February does give me the time to get ATC into March, though I’m fast running out of time I haven’t been using to progress any of the SHORT LIST OF GIANT COMPLEX 3D ASSETS Air needs to progress, so things may get wibbly after that. I do rather unfortunately need just about everything at once, so some kind of slowdown may be in order. That or I may blow the dust off of a scene I’d like to add to Dead City Radio and run that while I fill in the asset gap. I haven’t decided yet. Hell I haven’t even decided how I’m going to be doing parts of the next four pages – I’ll be making the determination on that tonight!
Posted way past the inaugural timestamp, as I got whammied with some serious “Exhibit A” drama and then spent some time cleaning up Ornix’s appearance in panel four.
Next week: SPECIAL EFFECTS!
