Flexing all kinds of Clip Studio assets/effects in this montage. (Please spend more time relaxing and enjoying the visuals than Leif does…)

Fellow CSP users, you can pick up the ones I made: star spray brush, leafy cel-shading brush, rock wall set 1, rock wall set 2.

And in other non-angsty news, get the first look at a Pride bonus comic over on Patreon. (Dex talks to their scrupulous and thoughtful husband about the other side of the 4th wall.)

Background scenery — Leif’s hometown, Hammer Falls.

Just so “how it looks” is fresh in your mind this week. No reason.

Spent the better part of a day putting this together, down to windows on all the tiny houses and highlights all over the bricks. Expect it to come up in the comic multiple times, since you don’t spend that many hours on a single panel unless you’re gonna get some real mileage out of it.

But I could put some a-few-lines-long descriptions back.

Or I could put in a-few-sentences-long descriptions.

I could even take advantage of the spoiler-cut feature, and make a nice clean grid with longish descriptions that only expand when you click them.

Examples of each, and a poll, behind the readmore:

Just in case anyone thought I might still be planning an elaborate bait-and-switch…Leif’s parental flashback reuses Valrún’s “people who were arrested with me” flashback.

And since Leif’s incredibly advanced multi-layer mental shields have been on my mind recently, they were the theme for June’s Patron-exclusive wallpaper. Your support helps me host the website, buy supplies to make the comic, and even do a little advertising — you’d be surprised how much of a difference it makes.
