I really like these panels for some reason. Especially the middle one. She just looks kind of thoughtful and forlorn. Plus, I think we all know that feeling of not being able to sleep through a whole night in a strange bed because of the sheer unfamiliarity of it.

I have to agree with the above poster on the emotions in this page. The middle panel is very striking, with the droplets on the glass, the bed behind her, and Beauty standing there, hair a mess, her weight shifting, her arms crossed - it's wonderful. Also, this may be the first time we have foot focus in this comic. I have a friend who would be horrified. She has this thing about feet (chuckles).

Now the question is, will Beauty wait out the storm or go wandering through the halls? Maybe spy the Beast doing the same? Unless the chapter is about to end. I guess we'll see!

This chapter is quite a bit longer than the first two! I decided to let it follow its own rhythm rather than trying to mimic a 22-page issue style.

Toes and toes, Oh my!
A wild wet night passes by.

Haunted memories.

I agree what everyone has said so far. Middle frame has to be one of my fav that you've done so far :D Great job

I love her bare feet. And her loose hair... Poor Beauty.

I was looking for samples of comics to show to a class I have and stumbled across yours. Delightful to say the least. I had to go to the beginning to read the whole of it. You use the space so well and the light and dark spaces are great. I just received a lesson in comics in a different class that I am taking. Wonderful to view yours. Thank you for the clean story plot and the fresh outlook on a classic tale.

I'm absolutely flattered! Thank you so much, I derly! I hope you'll keep reading along and commenting!

I have such a sense of the openness of that room...and how alone Beauty is in it. Whereas the darkness in the last page felt intimate, safe and warm after her nightmare, in this page it feels cavernous, full of echoey corners and empty space. Very cool!

This is definitely a solemn page - you get the sense of how alone and in the dark Beauty feels. As Kim M said, the space feels almost cavernous, with Beauty looking out the opening - the window - and being driven back in by what she sees/hears. I especially love the water droplets on the glass, as I said before.

In scenes like this, there's often a panel including the forlorn character's thoughts. Here, you use the silence so well. We already know the mother is a touchy subject, and the dream itself was quite intimidating. No more words were needed...for this page, anyway.

Beauty is scared of a little thunder!
It's cute how she does the "eek!"

This whole panel is so full of meaning and emotions. Beautiful.
