WOW..... That's inconvenient, but I guess that somehow explains the lack of Venus in those so called "visions". Technically, its Minako's fault for not bringing her power pen/transformation pen, or maybe it wouldn't had made a difference in the long run. Speaking of which, looks like the Venus/Kunzite couple is out of the competion....... DAMN IT KUNZITE! DO SOMETHING AND SAVE HER NOW! WAIT, why isn't Serena powering up?? Did she forget her pen too??
Are you kidding?!
Oh my gosh! I had to go back a panel to check, he was after Minako from the beginning! Her eyes were all unfocused!!!
KUNZITE! YOU IDIOT! He obviously did not learn from his past life! He's going to feel soooo guilty now! And when Minako gets better (that better be a 'when' not an 'if' Frizzy), I wonder if he's going to finally learn his lesson, care about Minako and sleep with her, hence winning the bet, or if he's going to be all distant with everyone because he thinks he's a useless guardian...
This page is so well drawn, I think it's one of my favourites - the anguish in Kunzite's face at realising he's failed Minako and fallen into a trap, the desperation on poor Usagi's face, the scary blankness in Minako's eyes! This is angst captured at its best!
Oh, I hope this gets resolved soon!
What a heart cage, by the way, you'd expect Minako's to be pretty, golden and girly. You've done a great job with this one Frizzy!!!
The "dotty fill"/screentone patterns are done using pre-existing images/seamless repeating patterns made for this purpose, putting it over your image and then erasing what you don't want to show through.
It's a sort of complicated process, and I'm actually just about to write up a tutorial about how I technically make a page, so I'll elaborate on how to apply screentone digitally in more detail then. :)
