Artists notes: I'm not totally sure the aura on Vic worked, but I think it separated him from the scene/flashback. Thoughts?
Also, scene one? Totally from Constantine, even then it wasn't intentional, it just kinda came out that way.

Oh Annie. You are all ballsy with "are you seducing me?" until he admits it and then you get all girly. Pick a position already!

Also, THE BUTTERFLY IS A METAPHOR!

Butterflies... I used to swim competitively at school and the smell of pools still give me butterflies, so I bet Vic's skin smells of chlorine and it explains why they both have bad hair :) Best cure for butterflies is having someone lie on top of you and kiss you IMO.
I don't care what happens in the future with Annie - this moment, these frames, today - makes me happy. Annie's needs to grab these moments too

The butterfly also saved you from having to draw the back of Vic's head :P

@mittfh: NOT AT ALL WHY I DID IT AT ALL I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT STOP IMPLYING THINGS.

...because I shouted on the internet I MUST be telling the truth so you have to believe me.

@GreenKrog: Hehehe!

There's nothing wrong with using props or speech bubbles to cover up any difficult-to-draw bits that aren't critical to the scene :)

@mittfh: I actually did it for a few reasons. First, straight people kissing makes me uncomfortable. Seriously. I think my ex tainted me, she used to scream EWW any time two straight people kissed on TV. Three years of programming got to me!
Second, it was poetic as heck. Since I can't do like, screen wipe to black or like the end of Corpse Bride where she turns to moths and flies away and screen wipes. So this is my version of doing a wipe, like, imagine the butterfly coming towards the screen until it is all butterfly. That type of deal. It looks so good in my brain! And now through the magic of inept internet explanations, it looks good in your brain now too!

I actually can draw the back of people's heads (and fingers going through straw coloured, well trimmed hair). I just didn't.
