Oof. Would it sound silly to say this page was actually kind of hard to draw? Not because there were any particularly difficult shots, but just because I felt bad for Oriane. One of my goals with this scene was to have her father shoot her down in a way that felt unkind without ever being overtly mean about it, so … mission achieved, hopefully?

As I mentioned in a previous update, I’m sad to say this page marks the end of this batch and the beginning of another break. I have about four more weeks of work to get through until I’m off on hiatus myself, and until then, I’m just going to try to stay sane and work on a low-key fan comic project. You can always keep in touch with me at @brinsonmarie if you want to see what I’m up to. Thanks, and take care, y’all!
