I want the actual characters and their feelings to breathe, so I'll just talk about the page coming together.
At one point this was the last page of a preview version, and so I wanted to close with a really vibrant composition. For me, having it be on "the last page" really added a lot of pressure and made me afraid of making any kind of mistakes. I'm very happy with how it turned out, but in the future I really want to loosen up about things like this!
As we're getting close to the end of this story, though, please let me know if there's anything you want to see in the gaps between stories: Do you have questions for the characters? Want to see a landscape painting or a plant in more detail? You can always ask in the comments or on the social web places.
On Patreon this week, supporters can see concept art from this page, and I talk about researching goat spots to get the right design for the goat character behind the couch.
