Yeah, Martin called for not actually showing the impact of the cane on the hand here. .... I dunno, I'm kinda fine with it because I get the feeling the lineart couldn't quite carry the heft of the impact properly. Dorothy's knuckles are probably pretty touch now but ever have anything hit your hand when it's flat-palmed? It hurts.

Another example of the script basically saying, "Yeah, just put in dialog from the crowd here." I was kinda flattered seeing Martin ask for that. ^^ Again, writing those little snippets of dialog for a crowd in the script itself just feels kinda silly.

And yeah, McShay's Irish, by the way.

For the most part I like how this page came out, panel with the head-turning aside which will be getting tweaked momentarily, but not really sure how much I've got to say on it.

Do really like the way O'Hara's looking in that second panel, though. Does just have a sort of look of madness to her I think, like she's really loving this.

How distracting is it I lightened up the color on Starchild's mask to make the expressions more visible? I maybe overdid it a bit, I dunno. In general I'm not really sure about the black mask thing, it does cause problems with emoting that the green mask didn't. Might end up switching to a different color of mask at some point in the future as a result. At least with Ivy's black mask it's actually supposed to be opaque so won't be an issue with her.

Man the cast page needs updating. Just looked at it for a second and basically nobody has their redesign look, the Starchild outfit doesn't have the color scheme I ended up going with and instead has the working one, there are some pictures still from Paint on there even with people we've seen since the switch to MS... Yeah, will be doing a round-up of updating things later I think. Probably after I finish scripting the rest of this chapter - one page left to go on that front. Lot more to go up before we actually get to that point here, of course.

350th page is in a couple of weeks, stay tuned.

The mask color doesn't bother me but if you want to change the color go ahead, and the cast pages for all three comics need updating.

Yeah, really let them all get behind. I might make a project of that tonight, isn't too intensive a process, just kind of tedious and I need to set aside time for it.
