Oh no, the smut is gone. RIP, smut.

Made some last minute script changes?

Couldn't get it to work.

Please try again?

Or maybe just an omake?

It's fine, there's other smut.

This just feels better paced and more reasonable, I have to say.

I like this transition much better. Great artwork!

While Guin making a outrageous request like that didn't seem out of character, this page seems to fit the flow of the story better. There also isn't the abrupt change of mood or transition I noticed on the previous page 160 & a couple of the pages in the sewers last chapter. We can just wait for our sexy times.

Yeah, I hate to say it, but this is better, story-wise. HOWeVER, that doesn't mean a similar scene can't happen when it would fit the mood better. BTW, I really like the peek in the window panel.

Gotta say, this does feel a lot more in character and flows better from the previous page.

Sex.. Sexy.. still very Sexy :)

I'm with Pyo, Icefall Kitsune, Andrew_C, Cuddle Lion & Lee M. Maybe you can recycle some panels from the other page but this is much better in all respects that were already mentioned. Plus, great job with curtains and the candle and the lighting in general. Looks homely!

(Also, IMHO Guin (now dry, clean, finely dressed and satiated) not being very mean towards Rina seems to fit the general mood much better.)

VERY good. Gorgeous coloring.

So, when I first read the failed version, it already had the "ignore this" banner on. And my immediate thought was that you were doing a joke page, like people do on April fools' day. The dialogue looked like it had been written after everything else, and was disjointed. The scene just didn't flow properly.

I still think Guen should get to sexually humiliate Rinatta though. Just in a context that fits the scene in better. The previous attempt was totally gratuitous!

That's my opinion anyway.

So now we wait to see if Venne is still oblivious to the fact that Guen wants to sit on her face and wriggle.

In agreement with the other commentary so far on pretty much all points: much smoother flow from previous page. Sad the sexy scene is delayed &/or changed to something else.

Now I have a sad for Rinatta. Knowing what was on the reworked page, seems clear that she was/would be totally on board and is now denied. Hope everyone ends up satisfied in the end.

Also, last panel through-the-window view: particularly rich and gorgeous. Might make a good stand-alone wallpaper if you're ever looking for a gallery of extras & misc art section to start up.

Well, it's worth considering.

Seconded on the wallpaper suggestion. Oh, my. <3

Ah, seems like I missed something saucy for once.
Bellar edit delete reply
This fits a whole lot better from my perspective as a reader.

I still got a copy of the scrapped page for "posterity." :)
Sheela edit delete reply
I don't, I missed it! :(
TeeKay edit delete reply
You didn't miss all that much. Just a bit of boob and stripping and talk of eating out... err... where was I going with this again..? :|
Sheela edit delete reply
Truthfully, I feel like I have missed the conversation more than the boobage.
TeeKay edit delete reply
Yeah, there was quite a bit of that too.
Sheela edit delete reply
Aw, now you're just taunting me.

I wanna see that page too now! >_<
jmkool edit delete reply
This does flow better, but in the interest of passing around ideas, a possible blending of the two could exist? A flow where it begins with the first panel of this page, starts to flow like it did last page, then gets interrupted with the second panel of this page and something along the lines of "fuck, nvm" and a very disappointed half-undressed Rinatta. Though yeah, I still don't think that exactly matched the mood... Nothing in the scene has really led into it. So your new version flows best
Heckboy (Guest) edit delete reply
Yeah, the smut felt a bit rushed, when in doubt, slow down the pacing and spread things out a bit.
Loving it BTW!

Wait, sex scene between whom? Venne and Guinevere? What?
