I'm terribly happy with how that last panel turned out, it gave me such a hard time but I like it in the end.

We're moving closer to some really fun parts of the chapter that I'm excited about in coming pages! And by fun, I mean challenging. This is a chapter full of challenges.

I've been reading some different thread discussions recently and it's just recently really stuck out to me how much I love to explore different relationship dynamics(that might be obvious by the cast, maybe) more than most other things. It's also become really clear to me how I used to use stories as something to cope with or take something I was struggling with in a separate form from me to try and work out a resolution. I still do to some degree. Anyway, that's the author tid-bit for the day!

I'm also really glad that you can tell things are building! I've been concerned about that since the start of the chapter.

Yussss... That last panel is a difficult shot to pull off and you nailed it! (I really need to use wide shots like this and pull back on my characters more often. Hmmmm...) *Takes notes.* :o

Lighting so beautiful on this page~!

Ryae is showing her more vulnerable side here... or at least she was until Fen came and ruined it XD;;;

And the panel really turned out well, Spellu! >_<)b I dig your wide perspective shots~!

Awww, what's gonna happen next? :< Ryae is sad and worried now that her best bud might be going somewhere super dangerous... :<

Rufiiiiii thank you - I love strong lighting 8D...

As for Ryae, we'll have to wait and see how sensitive she really is, or isn't xD

The last panel intimidates me. I fear it would take me FAR too long, and still not look right.

Oh man, it probably took me too long as is. I redrew it four or five times...not counting the times I changed the angle of the shot. It's not effortless yet but hopefully one day...
Thank you for stopping by! :D

"will we ever see each other again..?" D:

Well, as a reader I do expect they will, but yes, I so totally understand Ryae ;)

The last panel is beautiful, especially the mission boards, wonderful light and reflection effects.

;) Maybe, maybe not.

I can confirm that they will still be seeing each other around the Academy for a little bit.

Thank you so much! (I'm ridiculously proud of the floors in this comic, haha!)

You should be proud of that last panel! The perspective turned out great :)

I find that I like character-study types of stories, too. Lol and all of the stories I have planned are me working through issues, so I know how that is!

Wooo! Thank you! This was one of my least favorite pages to work on so I'm exponentially glad that it actually turned out at all.

*highfives* I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does that! :)

Aaaaah this page looks so good! The last panel is amazing, I'm so jelly of your seeming mastery of drawing in perspectives like that. +50000 coolness points for the last panel.

Thank youuu - though really it's just 'seeming' - that panel was really difficult. :'D Yayy coolness points though

Oh! Spelledeg! I love the techy goodness of those display screens. Plus the perspective is so draw droppingly good. I also appreciate the placement of the characters within the perspective. Drawing the perspective of the background is one thing, but drawing the characters convincingly in that scene without them looking like they're floating is easier said than done. This is so perfectly done!

Hi Skweeee! Thank you! Technobabbly things aren't something I feel I'm very good at so that means a lot! :D

Oh man, that panel. It was harder than it probably should have been - and I actually had floating-people problems a couple times in the first couple passes. Thank you so much!

Oh my goodness, the way those speech bubble tails just...squiggle... it really gives Ryae a disappointed tone of voice! I laughed out loud!
