Okay, confession time: this is another one of those pages that wasn't supposed to happen but got substituted at the last minute. I was looking at the last page and realized it would have been a LOT funnier if we actually saw (or at least heard) the boys being little savages while Layla tried to calm them down. Like, she's standing there trying to be rude to Tabitha, meanwhile these "super best friend" kids start fighting over who gets what for absolutely no reason. Of course, half the reason that page took as long as it did was because I had to spend a loooot of time wrestling with the layout just to fit in what was already there. Going back and adding some background action would have basically required re-drawing the entire page from scratch and, well, I kind of had to actually start drawing a NEW page at some point, you know? So the boys get there own little page to be a noisy nuisance in.

...actually, there's something else, too. I am NOT pleased at how disjointed all the various color effects turned out in that last page. The red/purple gradient was supposed to suggest the storm going on outside the window, but without any sort of lighting on the actual characters, it just doesn't work. Worse, Tabitha's goopy green mess sticks out against the other colors in a really gross way. Like, gross in a way I DIDN'T mean. So I kind of wanted to do something more visually appealing, with all the colors working together, just to assure myself that I still could. And yeah, I like how this one turned out a LOT better (and that three-person wrestling pretzel turned out a lot less terrible than my action poses usually do!

And holy crap, the final draft of this page went up before noon! ...just a matter of minutes before noon, but just barely before still counts as before!

Now if only I could get more of this Conventional Wisdom stuff out of the way so Voting Incentives could come back, today would have been a win on all fronts.

Layla's previously established (pg 1071) fujoshi instincts are tingling here....
