This one came together a little last minute - been drawn for a couple days, but the shading was pretty much done last night while Adam was just coming in from work and I was feeling tired, then when I finished my end of it when I got up I also had to account for Grant's dialogue in the last panel somehow having been left out.

Either way, still happy with it. Adam put a lot of time into trying to get that grappling panel down just right, I'll leave that to him to talk about.

Also good to hear from Eric and Erin again. I'd kind of started to write a couple of scripts earlier that started out with them talking, but I wasn't feeling that direction and ended up doing some rewriting. Sort of made them pretty much just be relegated to the background, which isn't really a giant deal since that's all they're really here for in this chapter anyway, but I still wanted to find something of slightly more substance for them. Not the last time this chapter they'll be showing up either.

Hhe... Yeah, it's been mentioned in Blues that Grant studies Aikido, with the logic that he'd have a leg up on grappling since his frlight power grabs him total control over his own center of gravity. So when Martin wrote in Grant doing an aikido throw I say down and watched a solid 20 minutes of martial artists doing them to each other.

That said though.... IIII actually think that panel came out really disappointing. The motion and flow could be a lot better and easier to see.... I friggin' LOVE the script for this page too. Is a great way to bring back the martiarl arts training, just think my lineart drops the ball.

Eh. Like Martin said, it's great to see Eric and Erin get some dialog; been feeling especially weird to not have Erin say anything given she's kiiiinda dating(?) Christina who's been pretty prominent. Also love the idea that once Grant gets in a single hit, Ivy's totally into it. ^^

Funny enough one of the things I rewrote brought that up - I kind of get the idea that the two are more on the friends with benefits side than actively dating, at least at this point in time.

Very interesting, wonder what's going to happen next.
