This one was kind of a weird one done at a weird time. Adam had to kind of rush to get this one out the door since he was coming up to visit and check out an apartment and some other things - should be here at my house by the time this page goes up - and so it was a bit of a scramble, yet we kind of had to sit down to finalize Adriaura's design in the middle of it since while we'd done a basic design we hadn't entirely settled on how to implement it. And even then the chain kind of got forgotten about until the last minute.

It does bare noting that we have seen this room before, it was just a looooong time ago and in a different comic.

Obviously some details have changed as the art's evolved and ideas have been finalized, though that big door and the railing on the platform probably are still there, probably just be visible from a different angle.

So... Yeah, this one was an interesting one to do. For a loooong time the plans to actually introduce Adriaura directly were going to be much different. The plan was always to have it involve Alex having to head into Eighth Sin's base where they'd meet, but the original idea wasn't for it to be part of this same chapter (which has undergone extensive retooling from what it was originally going to be in its own right) and for it to be a much more dramatic, built-up thing. Ultimately as plans came together it was decided to instead do this rather lowkey thing, having this very strange creature just suddenly pop up like it's nothing and Alex being completely nonplussed by it. Think it actually kind of works better for making Adriaura feel significant and mysterious to just have this sort of instinctive ease with them.

Heh.... yeah love the final result here. Great art work on it, especially with Martin's amazing color job.

......

I'd be more talkative if I wasn't exhausted. At Martin's place and been in the car all day. Been waiting in bed to comment.

Okay I can't even figure out how to react to this page.
