There's probably a computer panel that displays just this kind of information in their quarters... buried behind a mountain of boxes and temporary shelves.

Realistically, there's no reason to assume this page wouldn't get fully colored in before noon, so I probably don't even need to post a half-finished draft of this page... but I'm also really, REALLY sick of treating "some time around noon" as an acceptable time to start thinking about getting a page finished. There was once a time when not having a page finished and online at midnight was UNTHINKABLE, something I'd have to go the extra mile next time to make up for, and these days I'm apparently just fine with allowing the better part of the day slip by before actually getting anything done. I really need to start at least TRYING to get pages online at the start of the day again. Like, even if I don't consistently pull it off, just treating it like something that OUGHT to happen again would be a step up. So here's some line art for the morning crowd, with a colored-in version to come by lunchtime.

That existential crisis aside, I had a much easier time drawing this page than list time... at least as far character art goes. The layout was a real beast to work out, which is a funny thing to say about a single panel. But as you've no doubt noticed, I couldn't figure out a way to get both the screen the kids are supposed to be looking at AND the girls behind them into the same shot. At least, not without showing at least some of them from behind, and actually showing the character's faces seemed a lot more important than a computer screen on a wall... even if it IS awkward to not see what they're reacting to. Honestly, I'd have REALLY liked to show the boys in more of a tight, head-on close up, as if we're looking at them through the screen they're reading, but I couldn't make that work and still fit the girls in the back. And even with this final layout, I STILL had background problems. I'd also hoped to slip a little extra something into the view out the window, but there's so much stuff cluttering the page, it wouldn't have been visible enough to be worth the effort. Maybe next time.

And speaking of the future, more sneak peek concept art on TWC!

@ Incentive: Honestly, I suspect most of those are TV/Movie/Video Game Characters. Darkness the Friendly Goth; Uzzlib, the Psychic Alien from the Yth Dimension; and Squashed Astronaut are the top row from left to right. High Lord Impressionableator, lowest ranked of his Fleet; Mech Suit Billy Bobby Boy; and Obese Ninja fill out the bottom row.
