This one took a lot longer than I’d expected – two days of linework with heavy amounts of correction on both runs, followed by several more fixes (boobs, noses, neck lengths) after the whole mess was shaded. More effort than usual in part to make up for the previous page.
For context, new readers really need to read The Dualist, specifically Chapter Seven.
Thad (Val)’s first line was originally “whoah,” but that just didn’t feel right for a number of reasons.
Ph34r the boobtastic foreshadowing. Also, ph34r the rocky pageflow (-1- is a right, which makes this page a right. In my opinion, it works better as a left), which fortunately culminates here – the rest of the chapter flows very smoothly, which will make tweaking these early pages into shape a bit more of a challenge than previous edits.
