Did I go overboard with the abstract backgrounds on this page? Maaaaybe.

No, but you went overboard with June choking the life out Spiders! I have to say I'm feeling a bit shaky after reading this page. The first panel looks fantastic, but holy hell...

Naw, I think the work really well. Especially the black dry-brush on the third panel. And the solid black shading on 4.

@Hjels: I might have made June a bit meaner than necessary, but just wait until the end of the chapter. If I've done my job well, you'll understand why I went this far.

@groovykinda: Thanks, I'm glad the backgrounds look good!
I love everything about this page hahaha. The background in the middle panel on the bottom is just perfect. Poor poor Spiders.

@groovykinda: I love that movie!

I keep coming back to that first panel. That's one of the single best panels you've ever done. The subtle colors, the emotions, the layout. It looks great.

@groovykinda: It's the only panel with a real background, too. I had to establish the scene somewhere before going all trippy with the effects.

Support your local bookstore, silly!

@groovykinda: The nearest local bookstore probably won't have that particular book, but I guess it couldn't hurt to look.

As horrifying as it sounds, this is the June I saw in the earliest chapter. I just didn't realize how scary she truly was in practice rather than just hypothesis.

Following your story is like playing a high-end video game. At first you'd be worried your specs can't handle high Level of Detail. You then go into options and push texture settings up to Trilinear, then Anisotropic x4, then x8, then x16. Finally you push your anti-aliasing all the way up and realize your machine can run it smoothly.
Overboard on the abstract background? Nevah! Besides, it's the relationships and report, that the dear one's closest to us, sparks and brings out the colorful intensity of our personalities.
