Heheh... Yup, first page in Manga Studio for the comic. Was also still getted used to prepping 'cause I had to fix a lot of stuff in the workings of this one after it was wrapped up. Still, was very last to make the shift; think the little gag with Ellen in the first panel wouldn't've looked nearly as clean in the other style.

This was actually drawn so that it would be colored in Paint, so when Martin made the jump I had to make a lot of tedious changes to have it colorable in Manga Studio. Worth it though, think it looks good.

The White Noise static thing took some doing. Wasn't sure how we were gonna do that static thing given Martin puts that in himself in post, but found a speech-bubble filter that's appropriately named "Noise." Not sure how it'll look in the future, but think it came out nicely here.

Given the art style change and what all's going on, I really should have more to say off the top of my head on this page than I do.

Am happy with it, think it's a good start with Manga Studio, but I am kind of blanking on specific things to say here. Think Adam pretty covered it... I will say I notice that I didn't make some of Venus's paint having been chipped away here. Do that in the subsequent pages, just didn't think to do so in this one I guess.

The joke with Ellen was all on Adam, and is a nice touch I think. Guess that was one tight helmet to have been holding all of that in. Good thing she has gills... which I don't think you ever actually see on her in this chapter interestingly enough. Think they're always covered up. Either way, pretty sure this is her last appearance for now; like I said on Friday, we'll probably see more of Section 24 soon enough.

It's amazing how thinking of this chapter as having ten pages to go makes it feel like the chapter's basically done with, but thinking of it as two-thirds of the way there makes it feel like we're not even close. Though I trend more toward the former, probably because we only have like four or five pages of it undrawn at this point.

Alex and John look smug, Captain Mercury and Golden Girl look shocked, Venus Rockstar looks confused, and Reality just looks peeved, although after being kicked in the face he has every right to be.

Meanwhile the AME guys look to be having a seizure.
