Comic #679

1 Monty: We should take a few minutes to reflect on grandad's life.
1 Prof. Jones: Yes...
2 {scene: camera zooms out}
3 {scene: camera zooms out further to show the ship, tiny on the vastness of the sea. Humbling, it is.}
4 Monty: What are you thinking, dad?
4 Prof. Jones: I hope his will was up to date.

The sea background is actually a photo of Lake Simcoe from morgueFile. Lake Simcoe is the fourth largest lake in Ontario, Canada, and about 50 km north of Toronto.

2013-12-30 Rerun commentary: I artificially darkened the water immediately underneath the ship, to give it a realistic shadowing effect and make it look less like the ship is pasted on. I don't think I got it quite convincing enough, but it certainly looks better than without the darkening effect.

I have never been to Ontario. I suppose if I go one day, I should visit Lake Simcoe.
