A vast improvement over the last time West did something similar. He’s not initiating FTL this time around so visual continuity isn’t an issue, fortunately.


A very straightforward transition – visual distortion; cut to exterior shot, viewing angle ramps up while the Daedalus rockets into white, which jump cuts to a jump flare in earth orbit. You’ll see the ship that’s generating the light show on the next page, which should hopefully be up in a week or two. Maybe later. I can’t give a better estimate as of this writing – this is the last of a render buffer generated in September of last year; I’m currently behind on commissions and need to get caught up before I push ATC forward. The next page will be the first completely new work of 2016! Stay tuned!
