Game fucking on.

This is one of those pages that came about through circumstance; had a really hard day last night and took a while to get into the swing of it tonight, so couldn't get the page we'd planned to submit ready in time. Martin threw this script together for me, explaining he sorta wanted to do a page like this anyway, so it all works out. Very easy to draw but still has the impact of helping move the story along where it needs to go.

Was just a very easy, calm page to get out, but did like showing Hazel having to try and get his bearing straight and show that he's got zero plans to lie down just because his boss showed up.

Funny thing that wasn't planned on; didn't realize until handling the bruises that the fist being clenched in the last panel is the one Xmarlek stepped on, meaning we get to see the prominent he left.

Yeah, this was a page mostly born out of convenience; I'd considered doing a page something like this and ultimately chose not to, but then Adam said he didn't think he had the time to finish the page that was supposed to be next so I quickly rushed together an easier script to fill in the gap. Figured that'd be better than going with filler right now, and this page does at least add something I feel like even if it is a bit tacked on.

Was actually kind of an awkward page to write because I was talking to Adam on my iPad at the time - basically wrote it in a very loose format different from the norm and then he pretty much just had to rework it to fit as an existing page. And I was too tired to handle the shading and the stuff like the bruising and blood myself so he took care of that.

Either way do think the page came out pretty good on the whole. Bit improvised and all, and originally we were going to cut away from Hazel on this page instead of the immediate follow through like this, but either way, hope everyone enjoys. The actual planned next page will be on Friday.
