Eve's naked vulnerability in front of Mar is sort of comforting whenever it creeps into the story. She's okay with Mar being in a caring position like this, there is no power struggle between them, so why would she be threatened? Contrast to Hanna being cared for in the slightest and reeling.
The drawing of Hanna in the living room never sat right with me, the drawing is both over- and underdone. It just seems off, none of the details seem right, and I went with it in my haste instead of drawing something else. The feeling of discomfort is there though, maybe in a way I didn't intend.

Hanna rapidly tapping her foot makes the final panel all the more uncomfortable.
The "nervous drumming leg" is awesome!
Gosh I'm loving this little re-run, I never got to see it in "real-time" before, but I love the artists comments and your views into how things went. Since I read it the before I've also grown into an artist more so, and it's just so intriguing to see this in a new and fresh light, both with my own experiences and how you feel about it looking back. I can't wait for more and to re-experience all of this again!
The "muh?" panel is art.
It's almost meta that you were uncomfortable drawing a character who doesn't know how to be so vulnerably uncomfortable herself.
I always took Hannah's face as I DO NOT WANT TO DO TODAY, I CANNOT FACE WHAT TODAY MEANS, I CANNOT PICTURE MY LIFE WHEN HE IS GONE
