Sometimes I need to check my drawings in a mirror to make sure they aren't all weird and slanted to the side in some way that I can't detect (is this because of how we're trained to read in just one direction? does it mean my drawings generally look weird to native Japanese speakers? :o); this is particularly the case when I'm drawing someone facing directly out from the page. Today's was slightly to the side, and checking it in the ol' hand mirror...

It was okay! Although this was an earlier version of the pencils, anyway.

Also, everyone probably knew this already but I hit it by accident today after all these years--hitting "Alt" while loading up my ancient Photoshop, or selecting the "About" menu item shows an alternate About panel graphic--in Photoshop 4.0's case, it's the first appearance of Photoshop's "unofficial" mascot, Udo:

Aka "BECky" for "Big Electric Cat," which was the code name of this version of Photoshop during development--but later versions supposedly have Udo or some other "Easter Egg" thingy like that too.

Heh--this reminds me, we'll get what might be a glimpse of Selenis' drinking habits later in the episode.

Love your unique art style. The inking is very-very good. You excel at shading, where the lights and shadows are placed perfectly to bring the picture to life. It gives each frame a 3D appearance that looks natural compared to comic using 3D programs to create their pictures. I admire how you can put that much detail into the picture without screwing it up.

Also I like the idea of putting a single frame for each page. That way you can update your comic more often. Translation: I also appreciate your logic.
