I don't have good sight. Is Damiana hovering over mist or water?

Sorry, I'll try and make the difference more clear next time. She's hovering over some streamers of mist. Ed.

Your use of colour, shade and lighting in the panel with Ammie framed looking out on her own is the best I've seen you do so far Ed. Very adventurous but somehow it works.

Thanks Bob, I re-thought the whole concept and use of materials and lighting, plus a hefty upgrade to the characters and scenery. I'm especially happy with how the giant orb-web turned out.

I may be imagining it, as frequently I do, but suddenly I find myself connecting with the character - seeing Ammie as exhausted, hungry and desperate - the way you've realised her here in this page seems to bring this out for me. Outstanding page Ed. It's appreciated as is the careful work you must have put in.

I'm glad you like it, but I had a lot of help from Lee, and you helped too. I tried to set the story here with emphasis on the desperate situation of a lonely mother falling in love with the first live meal she's had in nearly four months, and her only baby to have survived with her. The sex being relegated to something happening in the background from an emotional standpoint.

Of course the artist's realisation of their vision has to be 'good enough' for the viewer to be able to empathise with and start overlaying their own emotional reactions on it and into it as they're seeing it, so any way you got here, well done.

Thanks, it's rare to have what I try to compose come across in the way it was intended. Most of my "audience" probably doesn't understand or care about the emotions and circumstances surrounding the characters, they just want to wank off in the corner to something unusual. Oh, well...

Um...not much I can say though a reaction is a reaction as both Michaelangelo and Worhol might have told us... and at least this way they've got a hobby... and while they're indulging at least they're not out on the streets every Friday night chasing people's cats and dogs and generally bothering the general populace... there are still small things about it to be thankful for.

It's probably best to get in and enjoy yourself, do your art, express yourself and not worry too much about people's reactions. People can see images of imaginary gods in burnt pizzas. That's across the boundary between producing and appreciation and we can't do much about it.

Yeah, at least there's a handful able to appreciate this as something other than porn.

I think Bob's expressed this a lot better than I could (and me a writer!), but I agree with every word.
