20141225, 09:38 – Rendered a fix for the back deck of the sedan in panel six. It’s not perfect but it gets the job done – I forgot that Mental Ray produces crazy artifacts with this generation of the car and wound up effectively redoing the render in photoshop to get around compositing artifacts.

20090912 (20) – Shirt repair, followed by scale-and-crop for panels one, two and five, cropping for six, and big, BIG cropping for three and four. Big, BIG is kinda relative, really – the panels didn’t lose any more or less than a lot of others have… and the focus is slammed straight where it oughtta be – the shpeed.
Also, fixed some anti-aliasing issues around Thad in panel one. Due to the near-finished state of the page when I finally noticed it I opted for thickening the line instead of thinning it out. It’s more pronounced, but hey – he is in the foreground.
Were I processing in production order I’d be all YAY CHAPTER DONE, but I still have to do 6.14 and 6.15, plus re-renders for 6.16 and 6.17. And the cover and all that.
20090909 (22) – Lettered. Complete, though there’ll be one more once-over before upload, followed – doubtless! – by some corrections. A WHOLE CHAPTER lettered in eight hours! Yeah, it’s the shortest one of the lot, but hey – a whole chapter! Eight hours!
