Yeah, this one was pretty much the first thing that came to mind in trying to think of Wright as Rayne panels to redraw; supposed to be this big impactful moment that introduces the whole concept of the story and it's just... not.

Granted I guess the Dorothy thing hasn't really been quite as much of a top priority to the comic as you'd think, considering Alex has been largely chill with it after the initial adjustment; that is something we'll be going into heavily soon enough though, so appropriate time to be visiting this. Is a big part of why there was all the previously mentioned shuffling about with what exactly's to come in the next chapter before it was all locked into place.

Of course, more detail to come on that later. If you're not familiar with the hug Xandy's referring to, that happened in Blue Blood Heroes here -

Though yeah, in general I'm really happy with how this particular redraw came out. Really just feels like a total world of difference here. Hope everyone enjoys.

Yeah, this is one of the ones that's really stunning. Like... Holy shit, I don't even know what to say.... I mean, sometimes I feel like I'm running in place, that all the improvements and work we've done to get the lineart looking better has amounted to shit and I'm not getting anywhere... Then I see something like this, all these years later looking like it was drawn by an entirely different person and just... Goddamn. This is really something else...

I tweaked the way Dorothy's hair looks here; it's slightly fluffier and falls omre naturally around her head, which I think is a big improvement. Likewise I tried to make her arms more scrawny and skinny, implying that in the time since Alex was put into her body, he's built up some muscle mass. That aspect was actually a pretty massive pain for me; I kept struggling to figure out just HOW scrawny it should be.

What else can I say.... Fail 'til ya don't eh? ^_^
