If I used narrative captions, this would be an excellent time for one that said something to the effect of “Time has passed..” – that said, by having Tiny say “yet another week” I can imply that it’s been a significant amount of time without giving an exact number how many days / weeks the journey actually does/should take. An exact number isn’t all that important either, so long as we’re aware of that time has in fact passed.
Of course, after all the drama-heavy character moments and development that’s taken place over the last few pages, I think it’s simply nice to be back to doing a ‘regular travel page’ for once.
Additionally, as per reader suggestion (so you can’t blame me! hah!) I added a link to vote for Beyond the Tree on top webcomics up on the sidebar – I don’t expect anything particular out of it, but I figure it might be worth a try. It’s not very large, so I might change that.. I didn’t want to make it huge and obvious at the very start since I’m kindof easing myself into the whole idea. Anyhow! TWC has this thing it calls voter incentative, which is essentially an image it shows people who vote, so I’ll figure I might try to come up with an image per week for that, if I find the time. I got some ideas for what I could put there in time, but the experiment would have to be deemed a success first I think. Still, for starting out I dug up a model I had from back before Beyond the Tree even got started of Hani Foonmall in a dress; I had plans for it back in the day, but they ultimately got scrapped as things evolved, so the model was never fully completed nor revised to current status. It was the first test I did with a poseable skirt though, and it wasn’t all wasted effort – the model for Hani having her hair down was originally made for that outfit.
