27 Nov - To Take Delight in the Pain of Others

Postby Hazardswake on Mon Nov 27, 2006 7:22 am

Whoa, I acutally managed to pull off a monday update after Thanksgiving. It was a close one, really.

Ahem, anyway, I'm modifying drawing/coloring a little bit. Look at the 2nd frame, where Nefausto is pummeling Cress. Notice that the colors and everything look the same, but the outline, compared to the rest of the comic's panel's, looks rough and almost pixelated. That's how I usually color things.

The rest of the frames were colored differently, keeping the lines in greyscale form and coloring between them with Adobe Photoshop Elements, a lesser version of Photoshop that came with the tablet I got over a year ago, (that I never use anymore; turns out I like drawing with just a sketch-pad better anyhow).

Anyhow, I hope to continue to experiement with this new method. Just another way to hopefully make the comic look better.

I didn't really notice until you pointed it out. But now it's really obvious, especially comparing motion lines for each of So Damn Nefausto's punches.

I didn't notice it either until I read this, but now I can't take my eyes off it.
Subtle, but a major improvement.

I may or may not have insider information on this point.

I'm pretty sure she's not controlling Nefausto. I think she just went all "Fei before he destroys Lahan at the beginning of Xenogears" and is giving him one chance to stop before he becomes a fine paste.

Yes. I know there are a lot of characters, but Araceli's hair design, hair color, and torn dress are all, I was hoping, at least, easy Araceli signifiers

You're joking.

Besides, she has a face.

Well, it is the first time Aracelli has looked so dangerous! So i can understand how someone might be thrown by that!

I guess Maple still has that neck collar the pirates put on her so she can't cast spells. But if she could, does she just have healing magic or does she have offensive spells?

She's a heal-y person.

"Cleric" generally implies limited offensive capability.

I guess she doesn't really have the beat people up kind of personality either. ^_^
