Gasp! White Noise returns!

Heh... Funny touch here; a couple of pages ago Martin pointed out how silly it was that Candice was still wearing a short-sleeved shirt when she was on a rooftop in winter. I then casually joked about Ivy giving Candice her jacket aaaaand it so happened that we wound up implementing that in the page where Jordan was mocking Ivy for being an uncharacteristically non-shitty-mom. Funny how that works out; weird little touch being improbed that made the point much stronger.

I'm back in South Carolina for now, but this page was drawn while I was in West Virginia staying at Martin's place. Was a pretty fun experience having him around to offer commentary and help ease it off as it was being drawn... Getting back to drawing here I'm sorta surprised at how much I immediately miss it.

Tried some more dramatic shots here, wanna get more dynamic with those alongside the poses. Eh. Thoughts?

Perfect way to follow up on that Adriaura debut, family drama!

For real though, pretty happy with this one. I think it kind of checks off a lot of boxes all at once in terms of moving things forward; we've got White Noise here, this clear escalating tension between Jordan and Ivy, and touching a bit more on Ivy kind of trying to be a good mom even while she frequently does very much the opposite.

The White Noise interruption does feel a little bit like it's kind of deviating away from all that stiff, but we will be returning to it as we go along. I think right around here is where the chapter kind of started getting surprisingly heavy on focusing on Ivy League, but we'll dig more into that as we go; kind of wound up being much more of a spotlight for her character than was really the idea going in, but it does seem very overdue for that to be the case.

Speaking of planned things though, I actually kind of intended to have White Noise show up in the previous chapter but there was never really a good place for it. So hey, here she is now; helps that even when the original idea for how this chapter was going to go down was extremely different she was still going to be a part of it.
