ZX Page 22: Concrete Flow

Don't maximize the above image if you're at work.

Check out the mirrored panel formation. I do this a lot but it's not something that jumps out to the reader. I do it to suggest a constant but odd tempo to the scene, like 7/8 or 5/4. Dancing about the architecture of sequential timing. Also there's a shoe left there.

I finished page 25 yesterday. I've also written a continuation of the "that's interesting" text below, but I'll have to edit it a bit before I'm happy with it and I also don't have a header image for it! I'll either have to scan the archives, or draw a new judgmental dog to go with it, we'll see. Priority is still the comic.

If you have any thoughts you'd like to share with me about the comic, I'd read them in the comments below.

it's funny how this page is not sexual (at least to me) but cold harsh,
while reading it my brain responded as if i was watching a date-rape scene (and that was before i read the last 2 panels)even though it's obvious that the sex is consensual. i don't know if that's just me or if it's what you were going for, but seeing the tears of the last panel i thought it was worth mentioning

I wasn't aiming for rape, but I certainly was going for uncomfort.
