Not much to say, except that I was pleased with our lead’s smile in Panel Five.

Okay, one more thing:  I played with different looks for the “magic glow” in Panel Four, but opted for something subtle and naturalistic.  It fit the aesthetic of the world better than some of the glowy, chaosy looking balls of energy I generated.

Besides, I needed there to be somewhere to go with this look.  More on that later.
