Boy, I've been having trouble with these last few close-ups. The page I initially put up on Friday went through some changes, as I tinkered with it through Saturday. It started with a sort of weird face that was interesting in a way but maybe a little too big and flat and bony for Selenis
Image

I tried to bring it under control by paring it back
Image

but that wasn't quite right, still needed some beauty and personality
Image

Later I was fidgeting with a different, less contrasty coloring approach; here it is at about its most elaborate
Image

but eventually I decided it was just a watering down of the original bright green and yellow, and chucked it. : P Now that I see it again, though, I kinda... Ah well nevermind, I've been overusing gradient fills anyway.

Today's Thierry close-up gave me problems for a while, too. Hmph, at least this it the last time I'll have to draw him for...a while. >_> That's what I get for coming up with an intentionally sorta homely character. Can't do that anymore, their pages don't sell! : P Also they're a pain to draw because I end up fighting back and forth with my urge to make everyone attractive. We'll have another youngish dude next episode and I'll have to see if I can make him properly handsome. :P

He's right, Selenis must reconsider or this may come back to haunt her, then again, it might not!
