It's good to be back! Not to put her on the spot or anything but we all have a big thank you to SentiaShinou for WOE's return! Without her help that hiatus would've lasted much, much longer! <3

As for Rev; I can't remember if I ever touched on this here but I always kinda regretted my color choice for him. He and Ara's designs were practically unchanged from the original concept art from before the comic started, (other than Ara ditching some gaudy fanservice fishnets for easy and cool black leggings,) but because of that his red motif kinda blended in too much with all the reds, pinks, and purples that WOE is filled with. I decided it'd be cool if his ghostly form changes colors over the course of the comic, starting with a classy blue to match the Megaton Palm.

Oh, and here's a fun-fact I also don't know if I've shared: Ara and Rev originally had a much more antagonistic criminal role, like a more competent Team Rocket. Of course they'd eventually turn face and join the heroes as the stakes of the story got higher, but they were going to spend much longer as villains and sort of serve as antagonists for the knights and humans to supplement all the Ethereal drama of Season 1. I don't regret cutting their story down to streamline things, (and that info I know I've shared,) but it's fun to think about what WOE would've been like with Ara, Rev, and the cut third member of their troupe popping up to fight the knights.

And lastly; TinyPic has finally bit the bucket, and although all my new pics and graphics have been hosted on stash, some older stuff was still hosted by TinyPic and got taken down. I went through and fixed those up, but if anyone notices any site graphics or pictures I may have missed, let me know! (Especially since I caught a few pages I hosted there that I had to hurry and fix. Site graphics are one thing but entire pages missing is a big issue.)

Forgot to mention ...I like the Blue more.

How dare you make me want to draw Ara this much

@JoKeR: Thanks! I was originally gonna make the shift more gradual like the last page where it was still a mix, but the red and blue clashed too hard and made his ghostly effects harder to get right.
(And thanks for reminding me of the proper bucket phrase, I mixed it up with bit the bullet, lol.)

@sentiashinou: Sometimes I struggle with the hairdo but she gets more and more fun to draw as time goes on. I'm glad I didn't cut her out completely, haha.

@Seven Rain: This was unintentional.

"Kicking the bullet"
could also be a Bruce Lee movie title.
