well, unless Vayla actually walked over, picked up the 'body' of the bug and carried it back to where she was standing in Panel 3, then the error would be that the the orientation of the bug parts is not consistent.

Or is that the body that is mostly hidden behind Raik?

Actually, it more appears that the tile orientation is off. In previous panels, the tile line are all striaght back to the wall, but in panel four, they are angled.

Raik and Momo were removed in order to take that picture. Taking into account the space between the "action" and the camera, they should be standing there, their backs turned to the 4th wall, blocking the view to the reader.

As it comes to bug body-part orientation, it seems right to me. In panel 3 you can see that the "octopus-head" part of the bug is there, even though Raik covers it. The claws and stuff are always in front of Dun (though the distance seems to vary). From panel 2 to 3, Vayla has moved around, but not from 3 to 4. Besides, that would not be wrong. She has the right to move, right? Rolling Eyes

Droopy's right, the floor tiles don't line up from the first three.

droopy-99 is right! The tiles are not parallel. 10 points!

Yeah, Raik and Momo had to be removed to get that shot, but I actually have to do that all the time due to the restrictions of camera angles, etc. But, I don't count that as a goof or problem.

For the 2nd question, I'll say "The departed".

I couldn't decide between 'The Departed' and 'Letters from Iwo Jima', so Ip, thanks for making the deicsion for me Smile

I'll guess 'Letters from Iwo Jima'

Wait, shouldn't pernicia be capitalized? The first part of a scientific name is always capitalized.

I think it should be italic, but I'm not quite sure. There are some specific rules about taxonomic denominations - that doesn't, however, imply I know them. We should be discussing this in another thread - this one is specifically for the contest of the bold. Let's carry on in the other one, shall we?

He had asked what was wrong w/ the frame, so I thought that it would also fit in here.

That has already been answered correctly, by our keen eyed droopy-99!
