..... Huh.

Yeah, given Paxton has been shown to have a lot of grievances with the Patriot Initiative and (something at least sort of resembling) a conscience, this is a bit of a twist... Then again, Paxton is a self-admitted asshole, so maybe he couldn't resist the urge to beat the shit out of someone in a public forum. He IS the sort of guy who'd enjoy a throwdown in front of a massive, cheering crowd of people. Hell, given his personality, Sareena offering a literal hand in friendship probably just made him want to swing for her more.

But this is a bit disappointing; I really liked Paxton a lot, and dug the relationship he formed with Ana, so seeing him go on full "Team Asshole" hurts a bit. Ah, well. Still had a lot fun doing his expressions; look at how much fun he's having. He's SO into the fight. It's weird; we've got a fair amount of Blood Knight characters, but this is the first time I've really felt like we're doing the Trope.

Hey, turns out Misty was right when she said to go in expecting to fight Paxton.


Very forward-thinking of her.

This page actually has a bit of an interesting experiment with the art going on with it, but I'm not entirely sure how much it registers at a glance; I feel like the pages are often kind of overly zoomed out so I mentioned that to Adam and also said I wanted to try doing some light storyboarding once he did the outlines for this one. He wound up working with the zoomed in thing himself when putting it together, but I did end up doing a bit of tinkering on that front afterward. Hopefully helps with making this sequence feel more dynamic.

Y'know, DeGroot looks really uncomfortable with this for some reason.

Some people just can't resist the urge to fight and be violent, what in the world is going to happen now.
