So... this was SUPPOSED to be a sequel to page 1034, with another montage of potential new outfits for Layla... only way, WAY weirder looking than the ones we saw from Layla's own wardrobe. That's why Alphonse and Bridget are in nearly the same position as they were in that page: because the layout was supposed to mirror that, with a jumbled bunch of frames up above. But then, half-way through, I realized... that I was only half-way through and it was already well after dawn and I was falling asleep. So I did the whole "silly dialog I don't wanna even try to visualize" trick again, and won't try to actually draw those oddball costumes until later. I still could use some more post-Otakon recovery time before trying something that creatively exhausting anyway.

Speaking of which: yeah, I wasn't able to get a new Voting Incentive done for today because I'm still really spent from the con... but it's a good kind of spent, because I got a TON of Conventional Wisdom material penciled out while there. Like, fourteen new Otakon pages PLUS the last five Animazement pages that still need to go up on Patreon. That's the best head start I've had on a Conventional Wisdom update in YEARS, and it REALLY bodes well for me getting the update online in a timely fashion. And the sooner I get that stuff done and online, the less it'll delay updates over here at Far Out There. Yay!

...oh, and by the way: it turns out it's REEEAAALLY hard to draw someone rolling her eyes when those eyes are blank white voids. This has been another of Blitz's Art Tips™.

8/17 EDIT: So, good news and bad news. The bad news is, between Conventional Wisdom work and various real life stuff, the next page almost certainly isn't gonna be done until sometime tomorrow. I MIGHT be able to get an uncolored version posted sometime this evening, but honestly this is one of those pages where the coloring will be the simplest step, so I doubt it'll happen. The GOOD news is that I DID manage to get a new Voting Incentive posted today, so ya'll have SOMETHING new to look at while you wait on the page!

@ Blitz: I know of two ways to have someone with "white void" glasses roll their eyes. The first and simpler one is the side view eye roll, where you draw the picture from the side so that you can actually see their eyes, and show that they're rolling their eyes there. The second is the cop-out eye roll, where you do something so simple to show that they're rolling their eyes, regardless of how poorer it makes the picture look (such as drawing little arrows to imitate the eye roll).
