Hey look, it's Saturday! You know what that means, right?

This page was a really interesting challenge for me. I wanted to give the impression of a gloomy, hazy dawn, hence the grey, desaturated tones. Also, drawing fog traditionally is really tricky! I hope you like the final effect :)

So, Africa keeps her word and meets Chui and Bibi the following morning. But will they keep their own?

The answer soon!

Moreover, I apologize in advance that the next Africa page is coming Sunday instead of Saturday. Why? Because Saturday 31st is the day I finally go back to Italy after my stay in Nottingham for four months :heart: That's right, the time is finally up for me to stay here. It was a good experience, in equal parts absolutely pleasant and incredibly frustrating, but all things considered, something I would repeat. Which is awesome^^
I will most probably spend November trying to settle back to my usual life and restarting University lessons, not to mention, I will have to rearrange my room (which my Mom had repainted while I was away, so everything was removed from it). This means I won't be able to revert to our old page schedule just yet, but no worries! As promised, starting from December, you will once again have four pages of Chakra and two of Africa every month! Isn't that exciting?

And there are also other news I would like to announce, but those deserve their own space :) So, secret for now!

Enjoy the page!

Let me just start by complimenting what you've done with the panels. It's a very unique page setup that I think you've pulled off quite nicely. Next, the atmosphere. You've captured the hazy morning perfectly with your shading technique, use of silhouettes and slightly desaturated colors. It really makes me feel like I've been transported to a foggy, hazy field somewhere on the african savannah. Your abilities with colored pencil is just amazing, your able to use several techniques to get the perfect setting and atmosphere. The anatomy and perspective is spot on as well. I really like where the story is going, keep up the awesome work!

(Hehe, here I am as promised. xD )

So... You managed to catch the atmosphere perfectly! I can feel the foggy air around me by just looking at the picture. Is there anything you can't do? :D
And I just looooove how Bibi sits there high up and looks soooo confident - unlike the night before. Suspiciouuuuussss!!!! Africa please take care! =( Can't you see? You definitely shouldn't trust them! My... I'm so on the edge of my seat chewing on my nails... what's gonna happen? I smell big-big trouble!

One thing that'd be interesting to see would be Africa picking up on their scheme there and suddenly coming up with something of the likes of having more than only one judge on the fly (so she could have a better chance of a fair competition).
