Okay, last week's delay coupled with a really bad case of workload, lack of energy, and general threats of getting a cold, so instead of half-assing a page, you can see here some redesign work I've been doing for Book 2 (remember, we're still on Book 1, but fortunately, this is its last chapter! :) )
All of these new designs have a story behind them, and they may not be final (still debating whether Derrexi would cut her hair short or not :) ). And all of these stories will happen in the foreseeable future; that is, this year.
Work on the actual next page is ongoing, and now that I could get some actual rest and recovery, it will be a full-assed effort!
