Author Notes:

I hadn't really realized it had been this long, but the last time we saw this room—rather central to Selenis' plans—was way back in episode 12 (episode 12, page 27, specifically)! Now it's in color!

I spent way too long today fretting over sharpness settings, but you may notice that this page is sharper than earlier pages.


(Obsessive technical notes! : p I'm using Photoshop's "Sharpen More" now—with Fade 88% to take the severe edge off—whereas before I was using plain Sharpen. I switched up to Sharpen two episodes ago, and I see from my notes then that I had started using Sharpen More + Fade 80%, but then decided that was "too hard on the eyes," and resolved to use plain Sharpen (I had been using an even weaker 50% Unsharp Mask up to that point) and just paint in more contrasty paints instead. Well, apparently I haven't managed that. :p Since going to heavy watercolor I've been paranoid about the rough-ish texture of the paper muddling up the scanned images, which I think it a big part of why I've held off on strong sharpening up to now, since sharpening brings out the texture, but that part of it doesn't seem to bother me anymore; guess I've gotten used to it. Heck, some all-digitally made comics go to some efforts to inject simulated textures into their colors, so maybe I might as well make the most of my natural textures. : o)

Just as I thought, a grow-op!
