This is actually a pickup – I’d planned another page entirely at first, but I felt I needed something before that, something to make use of Tiny and Te’len having space just between the two of them for once. I rather like the overall structure being malleable like that – since it’s not based around exact words but character states and themes, it’s doable to just plug in “more of the same” in places.
In hindsight, the shadow play is a tad weird in this – heck, the lighting in itself has a few odd quirks to it. I was trying to get a few shadows I wanted, but it seems those shadows didn’t want to show up, while just getting stronger shadows elsewhere. This was made even worse with that if I brightened the characters too much, the ship went from built out of wood to built out of an all-encompassing bright golden orange light.. which isn’t all that structurally sound.
