Last panel without ripplesWent really heavy on the effects for that last “reflections in the water” panel. Here’s the unedited version.

Good thing I kept that, too. (On a separate layer, hidden by the ripple-ified version on top.) The original page was drawn when I was doing minimal shading, and that’s not something I could’ve updated for the remaster while fighting through the effects. Instead I just updated the unedited layer, made a copy, and gave it a fresh ripple.

…and did it again in the Master’s Edition, to dial the effect way down. After all, it’s supposed to be the Reflecting Pool, not a river.

Kid: Mommy, look!

There’s a tiger!

Mom: Don’t be silly. Why would there be —

— a tiger?

Ann’s Being: Coming up on Park now, boss. She has the Bear with her. Animal form. Diminished somewhat from life-size . . . probably in an effort to make her seem taller.

Park: In other words, the same size I’ve kept him at for the past ten years.

Walker: Oh, there’s no need to be offended! I do the same thing. Borrowed the idea from you, in fact.
