Regarding early 20th century swimsuits,

Originally I was going for the plain white bathing suit for Desmond, I think it matches his naturally discreet nature. But my cousin Edd has a flawless sense of style, so he convinced me to go for the classic stripes. 

Stripes were a big thing back then

So, like, all of your panels are consistently high quality and gorgeous, but the second panel here is just stunning, and I have to comment on it. :'DDD

The luminous backlighting. The viewer being partially underwater. The perfect reflection/refraction of Desmond in the fringe of the water, and the shading below. The whole composition of Desmond and Dante, with Dante's wing stretching out over both. Everything, the size of the panel and all its detail, really lends a beautiful weight to the dialogue. It kind of has the effect of the words hanging in the air in this brilliant frozen moment, where the water splashes and the light shines: "Dante must remember it."

Also, how do you make griffin eyes so expressive with so little apparent effort? xD I mean geez. <333

The progression from red to tan is intriguing; and the above/below water shot a very interesting detail! Depth, and a greater angle of perspective, to show the gryphon's size relative to the skinny little guy. Dante is certainly keeping his eye on his 'handler'.
For some reason I am also remembering the theme tune from 'Jaws'. Wonder if they have snapping turtles there?

Hahahaha! Your Jaws reference is hilarious - immediatly after you've mentioned it, the theme song started playing on my mind and I couldn't help but imagine a snapping turtle sneaking  right behind Desmond and taking a good bite off his striped swimming suit! 

 Thanks again for your lovely words, KitGryph! I always look forward to them, they bring me much motivation! Joy

  You are most graciously welcome!
  Heh, I do have that effect: implanting thoughts/reaction in minds.... It's a professor-thing. I had SOOOO much fun in Biology lab designating a student as 'Igor', my assistant. Sure, the head office did not approve,,, but the other students loved it! Pity I have a very poor Hungarian accent.

Thank you so much, TR-219! You have no idea how wonderful it is to read that! I've been struggling so hard to maintain my pace with both college and the comic and other stuff that goes on in my life that it's been a real fight for me to maintain everything going. It's so good to hear it's paying off! I am very grateful for your support and words of wisdom! :tinyhappyclapwithbounce: +plz
