So I get out of bed and am immediately swamped by the Kobe Bryant news, the Steins;Gate announcements, Royal Rumble hype, and other things. Hell of a time to be trying to set up the WaR update.

We kicked around a few different ideas for ones to try here, but ultimately last minute decided to go with this particular shot; is good getting to do at least one a bit more actiony redraw, even if not hugely so, and Ms. Brooks is always fun. Kind of felt like it's been longer since we've seen here than it has - she was last seen as recently as Loving Family but felt like it was in Star Night. Funny enough there's a very real chance she'll have a cameo appearance in the next chapter; not really guaranteed but there's a pretty easy spot to slot her in at.

Thoughts on the hair? I did it here in the style I've been experimenting with lately, just to kind of test the feasibility of it going forward. Think it works very well but personally, and it's not really all that time-consuming most of the time, but wouldn't be opposed to hearing some input on it because I'm still a little iffy about doing it in the actual comics and now with some pages sitting on both comics is the time to figure out whether to go ahead with it.

And yeah, both Lenore and Xandy will be showing up in the main comics soon; both have definite approaching points in the story they're needed for, though it's possible in each's case that they may end up putting in a small appearance before then.

As an addendum the Royal Rumble absolutely fucking sucked.

Heh. Just sat down after a long shift in a long stint in work, so this is all I got at the moment.


Heh, actually this is the first time seeing this page that's not on my phone and really love how Brooks looks. ^^ The way the hair comes off, both in the coloring and the lineart, is a huge improvement. Especially since last time she showed up she had grown it out and looked really different. I might have to have her chop it off again next time she pops up. ^^

The dialog between Lenore and Xandy was naturally really great to see. ^^ I genuienly feel a bit bad by how we haven't seen them. ... Hell, the Blues kids have been so out of focus for the last chapter, that I had to look up references to draw them again now that I'm working on the next chapter. Been YEARS since I wasn't able to do those kids from memory.

I think the hair looks fine, very interesting, wonder what the next one will be.
