Okay, before you’re all “I don’t think Maxima would tell them to just take the day off,” Anvil explains on the next page.

Sydney’s smart enough to know that while some of her contributions to the team extend beyond the abilities granted to her by the orbs, she’s not at a level where she’d be viable as a field specialist the way Dabbler and Math are. It’s not unrealistic to think the team might retain her as an analyst or some similar position, especially now that she’s been read in on some fairly classified stuff, but analysts don’t often get anywhere near the same breadth of experiences that the field people do. To be fair though, no one else on the team besides Dabbler has fought giant alien supermonsters and sampled Fracture Station’s many food courts and made it with an alien space privateer, so Sydney’s a little ahead of the experience curve relative to the rest of the squad.

I’ve been trying to stick to the simpler coloring style to make up a little time, but you can see it drifting in and out. I have to actually catch myself when I start overdoing it cause I’d been doing the other style for quite some time. I experimented with making Max a little shinier too, but in this particular panel, she’s staring into the open breach of her T-Rex pistol, meaning there’s some dark circles reflecting on her face, which kind of makes it look like she’s developing a case of measles or something, IMO. Well, I’ll keep at it. Sometimes shiny people are going to have weird stuff reflected on them.

The October Vote Incentive is up!

Why did it take so long? I couldn’t tell you. Well, I hand drew the lace on Lorlara’s body stocking, so that took about an hour by itself. Anyway, it’s likely the next one will be single character, and hopefully it won’t be so late. Usually with fewer characters I can do more outfit variants but we’ll see.

So I have enough “Blue Babes” to do a theme. Eventually I’ll be able to fill in the whole rainbow of my own characters. I did a rainbow lineup previously for those who hadn’t seen it. I’d love to revisit that one of these days.

Enjoy variant outfits and lack thereof over at Patreon.

Double res version will be posted over at Patreon. Feel free to contribute as much as you like.
