I'm relieved that I managed to finish this within 3 weeks with the vacationing, work, brother taking over the computer to play games and other distractions I had. However, I had to squeeze more content in each page instead of spreading it out so the page number is something manageable within my time frame. I apologize for any pacing issues. And sadly, I didn't get to play around with panels as I wanted for this round-- I had to keep them simple so I can work faster.
You'll notice Cecilia's pants goes from black to white-- that's when I went away for my week vacation. I hate inconsistencies like that but I had finished drawing the lineart before it dawned on me
Thank you Zombie-Monkey for allowing me to slug Cosenti's head off~ Him and Chaos make an adorable couple. Thank you =Maraphy for letting me use Hazel, and *Inqling for proofreading my entry once again!
I know there's a plot hole with Edgar (being a robot)... but I had this storyline laid out since the beginning and I plan to finish it the way I intended it to be! Hurrhurr.
Zombie-Monkey's entry can be read here! It has delicious gore~ [link]

Let it load for a minute or two, I'm not sure why my recent animations are doing this...or maybe it's my computer...(If the scene selection window has the menu button, it's fully loaded, if not, refresh)
In this round, the contestants find the dark side of city life as they are mugged out of their possessions while Bells does nothing but sit on her lazy butt, and contemplate on the meaning of life.
Jokes aside, part 1 of my Chromatica round versus I worked on this back since mid-December...well, that's a lie, the second part was worked on first, which explains why 90% of this part are animatics. Which is okay, because the second part is when it gets good; this is all basically the introduction and rising action...and stuff. The second part only has 8 seconds of animatics, everything else is animated...excluding a comic part. However, I'm missing some lip-sync for Krazzle because it's such a hassle (it rhymes, ha ha), and I left it for last. It should be finished in, give or take, an hour or two, but I can't work on it this week. Expect it by next Saturday along with an epilogue which is in its coloring stages.
This is basically twice as long as I tend to make OCT rounds, so I seriously bit off more than I could chew. I don't regret it, though, my opponent has been my best friend for a good 15 years, and I owe him that much. But I learned this: I need A LOT of practice in Flash, no more animated rounds from me.
Cast (or better said, my life-savers): Acantha -> Jackham -> Krazzle -> ([link]) Sentinel of paint -> Iyaki -> Me (originally, it was supposed to be ChibiSamii ([link]) but I had some communication problems on my part, still, it's worth a good shout for her)
