I have to say this part of section 32 sub D, would be boring to look at minus the representation shown in it. Mainly you've noticed it's just talking. At least with these extra notes more information is relayed and you get a better feel for things said.

This page taking longer than normal to make wasn't just a matter of my spare time having other matters which needed tending to. It also happened since I was nervous I'd fowl up imagery of another person's work. This page shows two panels meant to represent SilverWarriorWolf's IG AU. I wanted the art approved before it got used. I didn't get as worried when having to represent Gizmo2015's IG AU. I had drawn her character of Gizmo once before and she was ok with that drawing then. Plus the view of Riverton of course wasn't coming direct from trying to envision it ( skyline ).

Panel two's odd stylization I guess might need explanation here. That comment I had Hunter make about alt. 1980's. That was a nod at the Classic series of Inspector Gadget. It was meant to look more cartoon like than what is normal here. Cartoon within cartoon isn't an easy task which makes me invent ways to show difference. ... Oddly notes before happening go with Alan in a sense. Back in 'Forge of Hate', I wrote him attempting to contemplate the look of what surrounded him deep inside MAD's HQ while it was under going a dimensional shift. " The coloring of reality some how flattened out, and distorted figures-"

The second wasn't wondering on cartooned look was, it was literally watching a cartoon, page 143.

Your vehicles look great! Looks like things are taking an interesting turn, too! Looks like plot has some fantasy added!

Do you draw your vehicles using reference or memory? I'm not that good at rendering them, but nobody's perfect :)

Thank you! :-D
While there is some fantasy in this it's meant to be a more minor element than major for it's use.

Most of the time with vehicles I use a reference image to work from, other times it's memory.
