We're going to try and return to a regular schedule in the next week or two. Sorry for the holdup but while things have mostly stabilized we kind of had a lot of other things build up during the initial turmoil that we're kind of only just managing to get above water on. We'll probably be able to give some kind of status update on things with the next Blues page so keep an eye out.

This one had kind of a weird production behind it; Adam drew it before the last Blues page as a bit of crossed wires, but wound up doing a lot of retooling on it because of things I was dissatisfied with in regards to the art, which led to some of the changes being made there being integrated into the Blues page and then back into this one on doing some polish on it. Leaves it at a bit of a crossroads of looking not quite as polished as the Blues page was but still I think a jump up from the page before it.

Pretty much just laying out the situation here really; everyone present either isn't really a fighter, has powers, or has touched a lock. It seems that isn't entirely a limitation here, but does still clearly cause some problems. I do kind of like getting to use it as a chance to spotlight who all present has touched a lock. Tons of people not in this scene who have, granted; really makes you wonder what powers those people might potentially end up with, eh?

Heh... Yeah, the attempts to improve the art kinda keep rolling in. Particular stand-out for this page is the new way of drawing hoodies that Martin came up with, now seeming more like folds of cloth instead of just fluffs of filler on the shoulders. Also re-did how Young's beard looks so that it's bushier and more fluffy rather than looking like something that was glued on. More improvements on facial hair will likely be incoming since it tends to be a pain to draw and think it could come out better. Ivy's hair is less exaggerated too.

For the record, I only heard the word "Thaumaturgical" in a YA book I was reading at work about a year ago. Awesome name for this sort of thing, kinda jealous Martin beat me to using it.

But yeah, Young immediately commands respect and takes the attention of the room, but clearly knows more than he's telling. Loving his feel to the room now.

I kinda dig how silly 2 and 3 are in terms of everybody being lined up just right for the conversation's purposes. ^^ Is a neat visual illustration of what's going on that also just feels amusing.
