Yeah, the new designs for these guys were hard to come up with, and we spitballed a bit before deciding on a few. Carla and Ellen's were the sorta least-inspired, and were mostly the two of us pushing stuff around the page until we came up with something decent.

My favorite is Gaspeed's, since it's so grungy and back-alley. It gives the impression this is what he typically looks like, and whenever you see him otherwise, that's him trying to look halfway presentable. John's is really good too. ^^

I realized doing the dialog and drawing Ellen's adorable huffy face that we kinda went too far in making her adorable. My exact words to Martin were "I think we're turning Ellen into Mako."

On that front, I also tend to make Ellen's mouth super-huge when she's talking. Partly to emphasize that she talks too much, but also since a huge mouth might help her use her gills.

Wonder what it's like for Ellen in the rain exactly. Wonder if it feels more comfortable or if it screws with her gills. Guess she does seem to be doing alright so presumably the former.

So yeah, this one's basically just a transition into the group kicking into gear in the next page and showing them making some battle plans, nothing huge to it really. Good excuse to let everyone play off each other a bit more.

Kind of funny, John's new costume is all but entirely concealed in this page, and in the rest of the story the colors on it are off a bit due to what's going on so you never actually get a proper look at it here. Do get to see it full-on in the next page though so at least get the design and an idea of the color scheme.
