I'm thinking maybe the time constraint on these blog-comics and the size I have to draw them is putting a cramp on the device I'm playing with. The visuals carry the weight and I think they have to be used in just the right way for it to work. Not sure i'm pulling it off.
Still, I'm feeling better about this one than I did the first part. The lettering is more legible (which is good - the dialogue is slightly more important her than in part one). The panels are a little less muddy. I started to get into a working groove toward the end of this strip.
One more to go.
