This is kind of a weird page to comment on, mostly in how the process behind it kind of wavers. Do think it shows that it was intentionally written to be very stripped down and basic so we could get it out quickly admittedly, was a late addition.

Still, it's kind of in this weird position where it adds more than it doesn't? I dunno, I had been wanting to incorporate Mercy and Luciana into one of the subplots of the chapter anyway but it felt too crowded to fit them in in planning things out. This being added did at least provide a little bit of time with them, and it actually gets some payoff later because they figure into another one of the stories later on.

I dunno, it's an odd page to talk about given that, sort of this weird mix of tacked on but also actually pretty relevant to the goings-on later in the chapter. Do hope everyone enjoys it though.

EHeh... Yeah, like we said in the last page, this was drawn on my laptop on a crummy laptop... Due to the monitor not working exactly right, the characters actually wound up feeling very off-model, to the point that me and Martin both wound up doing some work in post to fix it. We didn't feel comfortable even attempting the backgrounds on the laptop so the page just sat there with the heads drawn and nothing else until I was close enough to my hometown to drive down for a day, get my desktop, drive back to a different hotel, hook said desktop up to the TV in my room, and draw it there. All of this after Martin wrote it specifically so I'd be able to draw a page that was a lot more low-impact and easier to handle.

So it's a weird page in its creation. Was drawn across a long distance and a lot period of time in a bad situation. But I'm still happy with it. I kinda love how Luciana came out and the douchey outfit Mercy wound up sporting... And I really am proud of that restaurant. Just looks cool. ^^

About all I got. Recapping all this makes me pretty happy to be home.
