I thought a bit of a different style was in order for this page. And for the first time ever, I was thinking of webcomic artists when choosing this style. Does this mean I'm finally integrated into the community? If only mentally? :P

Anyway, the three artists I was thinking of are: TheMidge28 for his awesome Japanese-inspired black/white/red blood/hound pages (now deleted, sadly, but - oh joy! - replaced with all-new lavishly illustrated full-color-pages); NickGuy for his stark b/w-contrasts and dynamic compositions; and alejkhan for her great mix of classic Japanese and European styles on FireBorn, and also her beautiful b/w lineart. That's not to say I'm claiming that I did any or all of these justice... I just thought of their artwork as inspiration.

Also, for the first time EVER, I used a brush to ink this page. I used to work with actual ink until 2001 (been using pens since then), but I've never used actual ink brushes. But I knew that for this page, I just HAD to. And I like the result... using a brush, the line weight varies naturally; I don't have to work it out cognitively, as I would when using pens :P

I hope you can read the lettering; the font is a bit difficult for computer screens, but it was my number one choice. There were some asian-looking fonts which I considered, but they were just too kitschy.

Lastly, does someone recognize the monologue? If so: Major kudos.

And lastly lastly, what significance might this page have for the story? Hmmm...

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Sounds like daddy is the kind of person she would be fighting against.

A little young for that kind of pressure I'd think!

What happens if she just chooses "rolls over and sleeps"? :P
