Veronica: Fifth panel is pretty bad, you know it’s kind of mega-hard to find reference pictures with people hanging from cliffs at this angle. I wonder why.

Yeah, there are some minor mistakes in the fifth panel. But, I would’ve done worse. I find drawing characters from that angle really hard…

Yeah, Mike. If this were happening to me, I would also say, sh**. I would probably say it a lot louder than you did, though.

This is such a cool moment for Michael - even when he’s faced with a deadly situation, he remembers to keep Lucy from having a phobia attack.

Their tails aren’t bristled? Don’t they do that when they’re scared, irritated, shocked or angry? I think this is one of the scary moments. I know this is old and stuff, I just wanted to get it off my chest :unsure:
