I always feel odd when I do a single-panel page in a webcomic. Sometimes you need the impact of a big, full-bleed single-panel, and I think it’s the perfect choice for this moment. But in a webcomic it slows the readers down; they can’t just flip to the next page, they have to wait for it.
In the end I decided that if I’m ever going to use only a single panel, this is the right moment for it. I promise you that I won’t use them very often.
You can also see the art shift plainly here. I’m working on layering in detail and textures. It’s going pretty well, I think, and the rest of this chapter should look as terrific as this page does.
