Panel 1: Note that, while Spooky mostly healed herself after her bracingly hot dip in the Sea of the Damned, her voice hasn't quite recovered fully; I did this to imply that her hasty use of a presumably D&D-ish healing spell didn't engender a complete restoration. (Along D&D lines, before too long we'll see that she has access to only a limited supply of infernal magic, though Spookums certainly enjoys far more "spell slots" than even a 20th level warlock.)
Panel 3: Note also that Spooky is performing another "fusion overspell" akin to the one she referenced roughly 60 pages ago, which was intended to "grab the attention of the entire supracommunity."Also gotta say that I really like Spooky's contrapposto pose in this shot, implying that even in extremis she can't quite stop herself from dramatically "striking a pose." Nicely done, 2013 Me!
Today’s Patreon update: In an attempt to scratch out more worktime to
complete the long-gestating Empowered vol. 12, I've switched over
to a Monday/ Wednesday/ Friday Patreon posting schedule that won't feature the
fixed content format I previously used. So, who knows what today's post
might feature? Could be Life Drawing or Distressed Damsels
content (both of which are featured at least three times per month), or
something in the Work Stages, Vintage Con Sketches or Design
departments, or possibly something entirely new. Golly!
