Sorry again about missing last month's bonus update, but here we are for this month! Here's hoping everyone enjoys.

So, we get the start of some backstory for O'Hara, straight from the horse's mouth. Of course, she might not be the most accurate source of information... Either way, she's definitely willing to capitalize on a tragedy if she can benefit from it, given just what three weeks and a day before October 3rd is.

Not a lot to say on this one. This scene will kind of be continuing on Monday, it'll be kind of cutting away; you'll see what I mean.

If it's not obvious by our constant bitching about them, the reason O'Hara's current robe has sleeves is because we got sick of drawing and coloring all those goddamn tattoos. They're a tiny detail, but they require more time than they should to get finished. I'm fairly certain we'll never see her bare arms again, but we'll have to see.

I tried to make the first girl's hair look really flowing and impressive, so it'd be more tragic when it's lost (this is coming from someone with hair that goes down to the end of his shoulder blades so I'm touchy about that). The others have pretty standard ones though, so not much lost in their cases. Liked doing the shot in the first panel with all the hands too; thought it looked pretty neat.

Y'know, as easier as it makes drawing her, with the tattoos missing and the hood up too, it makes O'Hara look a lot less distinctive. It's almost like she's a totally different person.

Actually, I was figuring we'd see her arms again in the next chapter. She won't be in that one too much so it shouldn't be that hard on us.

Guess it's just as well; there's one character in Blues who's even more heavily tattooed and that'll be a pain whenever it's revealed.

Doesn't Bullet Time have a lot of tattoos? O'Hara is a freak of nature everything she does just creeps me out, and if she was nine years old 25 years ago that would make her 34 now , is that correct?

Yeah, Bullet Time has more than even O'Hara does, though being a uniform color they're easier to work with. O'Hara would have been nine at the time though, yeah. As for how freaky she is... I imagine something in the next few pages won't help.
