Watercolors pencils - Oh how I want to love thee!  This page is a splendid example of how they don't smooth out enough.  There's nothing necessarily wrong with the look, but it's just a booger to create large smooth areas that don't have those grainy textures.  Because of them, I didn't like how the inside of Kimber Lee's body was turning out, so I kinda just ‘whiffed’ on it.  That's why they have a partially unfinished look.

Same thing the story's namesake, the little glowing tinkerbell light-thingy.  I wish I could have given it a more dramatic appearance here, but I couldn't make it look like I wanted with the pencils.  But enough with the deprecation of my current art medium…

Sadly, Kimber Lee still knows precious little about the thing that takes up residence inside her, other than it's intensely protective of its privacy, which would seem to be an act of sentience.  But not proof - certain mental characteristics can seem to take on lives of their own.  Talk to someone who had to overcome a serious addiction some time…  That it's an aspect of her own psyche cannot be ruled out.

Finally, I've griped enough, I must say I'm pretty pleased with the bottom two panels overall, with their perspectives and angles…

Thanks for reading everyone :)
