For those of you amused by such things, here's the original layout of the page, with panels 5 and 6 in their original orientation. You can also see the difference between the original 3D renders, and the final painting, as well as see where I have altered captions, and placed them for the page to flow better.

I see you flipped the last two panels if I am not mistaken.
Why is he teleporting that short distance? He could conserve it. Unless walking is a problem because of sensors or something...

Jak...My text and pictures are subtle. What's that over the door? That's why he says he could just paint the lens.

And yes, the last two pictures were flipped in place to make the eye travel work better. One of the problems on page design is leading the eye around the page, and so this was done to make that flow nicer.

(And more detail in this page)

Great idea with the edits you made from the draft to the final version. It is good to have things move left to right for the reader's eye to follow.

Which font are you using?

I missed this one, Phil!

The Font I am using is Manly Men from Blambot. I can not reccomend Blambot enough, as they have some of the best comic fonts I have ever seen. I'm one of those who does plan on using some fonts exclusively for some characters, and this one belongs only to this character.

The edits on the captions were me. The panel flips were the result of a Crit on another site, but they worked out very well.

(Sorry about the delay!)

Love the layout and love the art style. I could tell that this was traditionally. Good job

Thanks! I have been rather happy with the outcomes, but I need to do some more pages. I have the layout on the next one done, I just need to get the shots done so that I can start inking.

It really relaxes me to get into the inking and painting zone, so I need to be doing more of it.

(Been too busy with other projects)
