Big gate, long opening time it seems.
Man that gate was a pain in the hind-quarters to draw…
Clearly one of those guards is a worshipper of one of the plot gods.
Shooting from the sun has always seemed to have that added degree of awesome for me, as if there were any better way to give the whole “Heaven has come to vanquish you” feel.
That, and for some reason panel 2 makes me think Charlie’s Angels.
So huzzah for actually reaching page 100! It seems somehow fitting this sees the beginning of a fairly pivotal story arc as well.
Needless to say, big changes to occur soon.
Another fairly simple page, the hardest part by far was getting the third frame right with the appropriately-3D palace.
The big one-oh-oh fast approaches and I’m making some art to make it especially special.
One thing for certain is that this battle is going to be one massive fight…
I love the sound effects Sildyu makes in this one.
This is largely an establishing page, since outright saying “They’re all away at the moment” is both cliche and poor handling of an intricate storyline.
I experimented with shading again in that final panel, I think it turned out very nicely.
Now I need paracetomol. Peace.
Experimenting with shading in this next couple of comics.
I think it definitely adds to the overall look and feel of the comic, but it shouldn’t be attempted with each and every one.
Certainly it’s not a difficult trick to pull with this art style if you know what you’re doing.
This (Along with some earlier events) should let you all know that Igon’s treading off the path of “Hero” and onto that of something altogether less noble.
I think the council just got dun told without insurance.
Out of the seven counsellors, I think the three seen here (Plus Greatwise, of course) are my favourites. The conservative human woman, the liberal Grisgol man (Who might jokingly be called “Minister of Bling”), and the conservative Grisgol woman, who just loves racey things.
They all just reak of character, though the others have their own unique attributes as well.
Also in this comic, Atta’s anti-establishment nature rears it’s head and spits in the face of those that would do nothing.
It’s going to cost him a lot though.
