As usual, I will be taking a two week break before the beginning of the next chapter! Chapter 10 will begin on Monday, September 28th!
This was a fun one--I wanted the look of a faded, colorized Victorian photograph, using more textures and adjustment layers than I have in a while. You have not yet met the two characters on the right and left of the portrait (though you have technically seen them before), but you will! Also, I regret writing characters who know how to bake, because drawing cakes is exhausting.
