Using an animator trick, not sure how suitable it is for comics...

Originally, this page was set in a much denser area of forest, so it would make more sense that she didn't see the projection. But it was impossible to tell what was going on! So now she just isn't looking where she's going.

And technically it's ceramic, not metal. But she can be forgiven for that mistake, I think.

Yeah, that's the trick. It's a very typical one-frame-inbetween animation blur.

... actually, it's a really mild version, since if it was actually a blurred inbetween she'd probably have ten eyes and a continuous mouth from left to right. But I figured "hey, this isn't set in Innsmouth, let's not drive our readers mad!"

... I've seen the technique used in both comic books and sequential art... and I suspect manga artist uses it as well.

The thing is... bottom line... it works.

The bottom lines were all in the previous two panels...
