This page has a lot of sand, doesn't it? That'll be a trend for a bit.
So Harena speaks! As does Ana! And her name's not Ana! Yeah, the idea with her, not that it'll come up in-story until a bit later in the chapter, is that Ana is a nickname, and her actual name is Serena.
Yeah, fight's about to start, though the next page isn't quite it - one last little bit of a warm-up first. I'm really happy with how the fight is scripted (other than one thing that I'll touch on when we get there that's kind of unavoidable) and how the next page came out, so hopefully everyone's going to enjoy that.
Kinda split about the sand in the doorway thing. Do think it looks cool, just think it could look more caked, solid, and blocking. Maybe could see it in the background of a later page where it's more packed in. ^^
I did love how Sand!Harena looks, though. ^^ The tone is pretty impressive and goes a long way to making it really look like sand. The unusual speech-bubble was my idea, I kinda thought she would look more distinct somehow. Especially since in an upcoming Blues page we wind up using a LOT of unique speech bubbles and fonts.
The forming and stuff with Harena was just cool in general. ^^ Am eager to see more of this fight-scene.
Given how much trouble Jason and Marina had when they faced off against Harena, Sareena has her work cut out for her in this fight, wonder what Jason's going to think when he hears about this.
Heh. Yeah, I'll probably need to work his reaction into this in somewhere. Doesn't come up in this chapter but that would be interesting to see.
