A page with a lot of talking…exposition has to go somewhere, right? The first three panels are meant to indicate that Saphyr and her boyfriend (?) are approaching the campfire and the bearded stranger can hear them coming as they are arguing their way through the undergrowth. I also tried to indicate that with changes in font size but it makes some of the first balloons hard to read - JPG compression doesn't help either, sorry about that.

Stuff like this is great to figure out how to make a page of dialogue work. Not sure I'm quite there yet, still need to be more aware of where I place balloons while I do the art. I often find pages like this much more challenging than action pages. There will be more of the latter to come...bear with me!

By the way - there are continuity errors galore from page to page, but just to be clear - Saphyr removed most of her piercings when she went skinny-dipping. If you look carefully, you can see they are missing...

Incredible amount of detail here. You did a great job getting all that dialogue in and not having it look crammed.
