So, #40. I really went a little overboard on bloom and slight background distortion in this one, simply to make the fact that it is a dream sledgehammer-style obvious. While there’s certainly meant to be space for a few varied interpretations in places, most of the page being a dream should hopefully come across as pretty definite. ;)
This page, the so-called second dream, has actually been in planning for a long time. I had it scripted far earlier than the pages immediately before and after it because of the role it plays in Setting Certain Things Up(tm). It was a really odd creation to make since it called for making High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind somehow act both dignified and suitable to her character and still be.. well.. flirtateous, somehow.
Personally, I’d rank this as the oddest page I’ve done yet for Beyond the Tree, intermissions included. That said.. I do love the result and it certainly was interesting to try to characterize another form of interaction.
