This page is special for me. Besides being a major reveal and the end of another chapter, this page represents the culmination of something that I’ve been planning since the fourth page that we ever did. It’s been a long time, and we’ve come an incredibly long way since then, but the narrative thread still holds, and I’m quite proud of that.
Finally I have to give particular recognition to the one person I know of who 100% called this in the comments at the beginning of this chapter. Nice sleuth work, Garth Rine!
More Panthera to come, and many further explanations, as we’ll be rolling right into Chapter 11. Stay with us!
Marina is one of the few characters where I debated how far I should really redesign her due to how much has changed art wise over the years. For her new look, I decided to give her a more combat look to her, and in some ways reflects her new personality compared to the best friend she used to be. Her hair has also been lengthened and jagged looking. How did she come to look like this tho? You’ll just have to see in the next chapter.
I’ll be posting a higher res version of Marina’s panel on my DeviantArt and FurAffinity accounts as well so be sure to check that out.
