Ughhhh... Really feel brainless and about to lie down, so not sure what to say about this. Page was awesome to work on. That second panel took up a lot of time for both me and Martin. I was stunned when I looked closely at the script and realized just how many people were there since it seems like practically the entire non-villainous cast of WaR showed up to this party.

Quickly got over how tough it was when playing around with the groups they form in the party and wondering what everyone's talking about. ^^ I love John, Ellen, and Gaspeed crowding around Laura in particular. Plus I'm really happy that for a nameless extra that kid who lives in Dorothy's apartment complex got an invite. Love that kid.

The other panels were practically afterthoughts by comparison in the art department. Main thing I liked about them was Sarabeth's NERV T-Shirt. No secret I'm a huge EVA fan and drew that to hype myself up for the upcoming DVD release of Rebuild 3.0. Really can't wait. Hell, I plan on finally pre-ordering it when I wake up tonight.

Better look at the font here. Enjoying?

Yeah, wow, big gathering of the cast for this one, with a lot of people we have not seen in quite some time!

And for most of them this is the only page in the chapter they're in.

Yeah, obviously, this is largely set-up for the second half of the story I was talking about when the cover was set up. A lot of these people will be getting their day in the sun soon, don't you worry - the next chapter has a ton of ground to cover and will be giving a lot of focus to different faces. And, of course, another thing that's set up for the next chapter is that mention of what happened with Sareena and Misty; we'll see the two of them in the next page, but for what's actually the problem... Be a little bit before we learn that.

The Robinsons being among them; they were supposed to be in with this group and I just forgot to list them in the script notes. Guess they're just out of the room for the moment, or conveniently off-camera.

Yeah, this chapter is largely focused on a small section of the cast in one place just bouncing off of each other in various combinations, and none of those besides Alex are in this room. We'll be seeing a couple of other key players in this chapter in the next page and it probably wouldn't be <i>that</i> hard to guess at who a few of the others besides Alex and Ivy are.

So is this Candice's ninth birthday party? This is getting interesting, looking forward to the next page.

Ohhhhh, ninth. Okay, yeah. Didn't occur to me the number. Otherwise I would've added candles.
