This page was fun; I like writing dialogue for Corva and Gilgam, especially since Corva has no idea what he’s talking about here. I wish I could’ve nailed her expression in panel 2; as is, it’s mostly conveyed by dialogue.

I had fun messing around with Photoshop tricks for the display, but running the options by my editor (also my girlfriend), we agreed that they obscured what was happening too much. While I wanted to show that these devices were decrepit–a thousand years old, as Gilgam says–I also wanted to make things show up at least somewhat clearly.

Not perfectly happy with some of the stances and expressions on this page; I need more photo-reference for expressions.
