Wow, this page was tough and I don't like how it ended up. I've got to work on my spatial imagination.

Yeah, the cart easily doubled in size after the first frame, but still looks good!

It is only the first panel that seems to be abnormal. However, it evokes such a comfy, cozy and warm image against such a wet and cold background that it is precious by itself. I think so, at least.

Like I said, internal views of tight spaces are always awkward because when you actually see them the scene wraps around your point of view, and it's very difficult to represent that on a flat picture without it looking totally weird.

Personally I think you did well. Panel 1 does have the wagon looking a lot smaller than in the other panels, and panel six actually looks like the lady with the glowy necklace (do we actually know her name yet?) is falling out, and Guin's right knee is getting wet!

Looks fine to me! Nothing like cramped quarters for casual cuddling...

Reminds me of all those elevator shots you see in sitcoms - there's no way they could shoot in an actual elevator and still have all that elbow room.

You don't like how it ended? I think it turned out quite well indeed. As you said it was a tough job. Once again you're being overly self—critical. But maybe that's just your MO.

Somebody said the wagon size doubled after the first frame. But, NO, what changed was the perspective. And you did well to make that work.


A certain couple is getting frisky in frame two. But by frame six, oh, see, I knew that wasn't going to fare well. Now if Venne and Tia had tried to give it a go as well. Not in a foursome but a side by sidesome. That could've been more troublesome.

I guess that while disregarding spacial consistency you got the overall cramped-tent-while-raining feel just right. Everyone who ever camped will agree.

It could be that the panel layout made things difficult, since you set aside room for the speech bubbles on top of fitting busts or more in each shot.

Might have benefited from having maybe three page-wide panels for showing off the whole space and just do that for two pages, or two page-wide panels a couple smaller panels with closeups of the lacing/sewing & braiding. Use very close up views to help convey the cramped feeling and enlarge all the details enough that laying speech bubbles on top doesn't obstruct much.

No, it's better the way it is. The artist made the right choices.

As for those who call discrepancy, no, you just don't get it. It's change in perspective. The pov for the first frame is from further out looking in. The other frames come from closer in.

Edit :
It just struck me that Tia is acting like a cat on this page
