Yeah, this is the page the head thing was come up with for. And I actually need to have Adam go edit it into one of the pages coming up after this now that I think about it...

So yeah, this isn't the easiest one in the world to comment on but was pretty much just showing off a little of Laura playing off her mom. It's actually kind of a subject I've been a liiittle apprehensive about - I want to show more of it but I've not been entirely sure how to make it feel called for really. We'll see though, I need to churn out some more scripts since not got a huge backlog of them after this.

I think this might be the first time the green thing has actually been acknowledged in-story. It's kind of one of those things where it started as just a small coloring quirk and kind of turned into making a thing out of it. Part of the gag here being... I was split on whether to commit to this for awhile but I've been kind of subtly implying for awhile now that Laura's green eyes are actually contacts. Both her parents have brown eyes and they were brown as Chris, now this page I kind of had to either commit to the joke or not given we're seeing her as a kid.

Heheh... I find it weird how easy it was to draw Chibi!Ropun. ^^ The idea of her being a little tomboy came out really naturally, and was just cute seeing her run around in her little green overalls. Just thought it was super-cute. Kinda my only problem was I wish I'd gone a little more creative with the Mom. Do something to make her more visually distinct from Ropun. I dunno, something....

All the same, did love doing Ropun's childhood, and I'd go crazy for the chance to handle more. ^^ Kinda all I have to say on this one....
