One scaled; two and three scaled and cropped, four and five cropped. Plenty of wiggle left for dialogue, if need be.

Also. Having started with this Chapter on the weekend of August 01, I’ve managed to process (formatting only, no dialogue) FORTY SEVEN pages in eight days. FORTY SEVEN. That’s with some fresh renders and wee amounts of cleanup – not the major, massive surgery previous chapters have required.

Of all of these, there’s a whopping one that’s actually ready to go… and I still need to grind out Expulsion and II before any of this will see daylight. By that time I’ll hopefully have another chapter or two prepped*… which means I’m building up to one hell of a lettering slog!

* I’m doing Interstitial next, then I’ll get started on Descent later this week or this weekend. Maybe – there’s a list of other stuff that I need to take care of first. A commission, finalizing fixes for my dad’s computer, etc. – stuff that’ll be long done by the time you read this.
