I really enjoyed drawing this page, Kasumi is really fun to write and draw. Though her hair on page 33 gave me some trouble because there's so much of it and it's all different lengths and colors and it's messy.
Her hair is like that because merfolk have different standards of what's considered fashionable given they spend most or all of their time in the water, so things are usually styled around how they'd look when submerged in water.
You'll notice that Kas's eyes are drawn differently than the other characters, that's also part of her piscine design. Merfolk have eyes that allow them to see extremely well in water, but they generally have poor vision on land and many of the ones that spend time on land need glasses/contacts/ etc. However, Kas is young and adamant about being fashionable so while her eyesight isn't super horrible on land she will resort to wearing contacts after a few hours.
In the initial sketches for this page Kas was going to pull the dress out of her bag and it was wrapped in plastic so it wouldn't have gotten wet. She has a stash of plastic-wrapped clothes for when she goes on land, and also an entire wardrobe in her land-based apartment. I'm not sure why I changed things so the plastic-wrapped clothing wasn't shown but that's how things are.

It took me a while to figure out what this meant but I think I get it now (you're referring to the person in the background with a metal detector, right?)

Looks like eight to me, not six.

I wonder what Lilith's hair would look like underwater. And does Kasumi have some special technique to keep/get sand out of her hair? I'd imagine her wet hair would get coated with sand every time she came on shore. Also this page is sparkly. Very very sparkly and pretty.

Lilith's hair would look like a big lavender mass with a splash of light blue in the middle. And Kas either just brushes/combs it out of her hair or runs water over her hair.

Thank you, sparkles are my specialty!

She'd bump into a lot of things if she would stop tripping on other things first.

She's so cute. And I really appreciate that you give us background info. We wouldn't get that if we were reading this in a printed comic book, not to take away from their splendor of those, but this is what a webcomic is all about. ^_^

Her clothes are wrapped in plastic so they don't get wet. I was going to show that on this page but ended up not doing it :/

I'm not wearing my glasses and at first sight, I thought the last panel showed her headless. I thought "oh, no, someone turned her into a fish!"

Nothing wrong with the drawing, mind you. Just that maybe I too see better underwater.

It's a theory that needs to be tested. For science.
