I celebrate getting past the crowd scene … by drawing more crowd scenes. Oof.

As you may have noticed in the previous page, I made a decision to start applying softer focus to some panels. I’ve always wanted to use a rack focus effect in some future scenes, so I thought I’d start working in blurring now — overall I feel like it gives a little more depth to some shots, though it adds even more time to the tail end of the process, lol. I also feel like I leveled up a little on BGs for this scene. If nothing else, it certainly has been nice to move to an outdoor setting. 🙂

The next update will be Monday, August 28.
