--------------------------
I could have done more with this in terms of artwork, I get the feeling.. but you know how you work on something so long you start to hate it? That's me.

ANYWAY. Blurb.
Well didn't you think the ghosts were a liiiitttllle too quiet until now? So they decided to trip Charcoal before he could leave the chapel (Blaze is just out the doorway in the hall). I don't like how it's drawn but that rug BUGGED ME.
Now see, I think Blaze might still have been in trouble judging from the suspicion on Charcoal's reluctant expression... you know, Blaze, it would help if you'd just explained yourself in the first place ;P

This IS a strange ending.. but I decided to do what I liked to do and the best non-offensive thing I could do in a chapel. One thing I've learned from horror games, is it's not always what jumps out at you from mist, a corner, the dark.. it's what could. And imagine a dark that you can't see anything that wouldn't go away.
Now maybe I should have used my imagination instead of making you use yours... but I didn't. *shrug* What happened to Charcoal is up for debate, though my own mind tells me those ghosts weren't smiling because they were happy to see him..

My thought/explanation: Note that the Master Ghost and the chapel ghosts operate independently.. when the candles first went out and lit up again, notice that both Blaze and Charcoal have a hard time getting the place to light at all? I think that's something evil at work unlike the empty chapel at the end, which Blaze was fortunate enough to be shut out of..
It's all a little abstract. I blame Silent Hill. 8D

And I did indeed have to colour the centre images of Charcoal.. since I had more time than I thought I would, it was a nice fun finish XD

Last note: At the end? - Blaze has now seen two people die, and knows he could be next. So that, my friends, is a statement telling you that he will be more likely to attack/kill to avoid being killed in this grim scenario if faced with a more brutal opponent. :evillaugh:

D'oh - forgot to comment - You pulled off that menacing mood that's so hard to capture, and I love that creepy panel of the empty room where Charcoal was - great job, I love the interaction between Blaze and Charcoal - great overall!~

Eheh. I tried... me and my blasphemous brain had to work out a compromise because I didn't want to kill Charcoal (too cute) and/or offend any religion here.

I'm happy some people apparently liked it.. I worked on this so much I really hate it now ^^;

It's a short and sweet entry. I think you drew Charcoal in character. I like the way you drew him, especially the coloured one in this pic. Chibi Charcoal over there is pretty cute! :heart:

I wish I made some effort in the backgrounds like you did. ^^;

Best of luck~!

Well, probably not as in-character as he could be.. but I was out of steam. (And only the author knows their characters down-pact, really.)
I actually had more story-telling and dialogue, because I would have liked these two boys to talk more (for better or worse).. but I knew I'd be stretching just getting 6 pages done.
At least you did a brilliant job on telling a story :D

The chibi Charcoal was fun for me.. I drew it out of my head and it turned out for once. YAAYZ. And I figured since I didn't get a good colour image on page 2, he needed a colour picture since I had time. Ended up looking too small in the panel though.. >.>

Well it is good practice for me.. this entry was kinda pointless with drawing backgrounds for them being useful apart from the rug.. hehe. You had plenty of effort shown :3

Best of luck - I think you got the contest extra too XD *should have watched more classic horror movies*

I second the love for the guest list. Fantastic job! I love that entire middle bit, with Charcoal being between the two panels there, and colored really loverly...ly. 83
You backgrounds are really awesome too! Really wicked! *Waves flags!*

I had a bit of extra time to be very honest - I got these all done one day ahead of time until I found out I had another day... so I decided I could add some colour splashes because Charcoal needed to be drawn in full colour once X3

D'aww. Thanks muchly. I see many Emily and Kaz cameos - looks like everyone misses them! D8

Oh wow! *_____________* This has been a fantastic comic! I love the twists you added, like the list of party guests being reduced little by little :D You did an amazing job! Much luck in the contest!

Sorry to double-reply - I think I mixed your comment up with someone else's.. yep, that whole first paragraph was responding to someone else's comment. xP

But thanks again ^^; *dies*

Thanks - if I can't do a good job with the script, the least I had to try was to make it eye-pleasing (though I kinda messed that up in page 3, me and my panel-cramming habits..)

Likewise ^^ I wanna see more of Puck :D

I think everything is pretty well drawn, Charcoal looks great in color, but the flow of action wasn't clear... I didn't understand a great deal of it until you explained in the description ^^"
But I liked your ideas! =)

Ehehe. Yeah, I hated how this turned out after page 4 - I couldn't come up with any chapel-related ideas, especially without, uh, possibly offending people ^^; I had to chop up my script to get all the pages done, and that was a stretch ><

Eh, I tried, and thanks for letting me know :)

Awww, thanks Sam.. even if that's not true XD :heart:
At least I got a nice image of Charcoal done.. I think I love how his chibi expression ended up out of everything, hehe.

Pfft It is SO true. I think I can get everyone to back me up on that. <3 Oddly my favourite panel isn't of a character at all but of the Chapel door handles on page 1 and of course the whole 'I DIDN'T DO IT!' panel.

:O YOU APPRECIATE MY BACKGROUNDS.
... they killed me ;.; And I am not drawing door handles again for a VERY long time. (In Round 1, the door handle to the Red Room had Blaze's reflection on it. ._.)
