Though not referred to by name in the story, I had
intended the girl to be called 'Maria'.
It was her that I grew to dislike the most during the Artwork :-)
You see, having commited to this particular style, especially with
those blacks in the eye area, it was always a big fight to not have
her look like Robert Smith (...that guy from 'the Cure').
I hated this particular panel for weeks, it took me about
8 versions until I was happy... patience and good reference
was the eventual solution.
now it's one of my favourites...funny that.
