So this is where the worm really turns! My long time fans will recognize this ugly sucker quite readily. That poor guy, all he wanted was some pictures! I bet you all have lots of questions. What was Mr Scary doing inside of that poor bastard? What's his relationship to the ominous satellite? What is your name? What is your quest? What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? 

This page was something different for me. I dont know what you call this style of layout, time lapse, montage maybe? Ive seen it used in comics over the years but Id never done it myself. I was trying to rough out this page but I wasnt happy with my panel layouts. The page wasnst dynamic enough, the sketches flat and boring. So I decided to just sketch out the images with no panels. I do that sometimes, thumbnialing each panel on its own layer so I can arrange or resize them as needed before drawing in the gutters. Sometimes drawing within the boxes is restrictive you see, It wasnt too long as I was mucking about when I realized I was going to do this time lapse style page (yeah Im gonna stick with time lapse) and pray that I could pull it off. 

I'll let you folks be the judge of wether or not I succeeded.

How did I miss and not Fav this page?! ARGH!!

Onto the page itself, I was wondering if this fella was going to be showing up at some point, and his entrance is every bit as horrifying as I expected. Game on, indeed. Beautifully composed sequence.

Thanks very much, yeah the last few pages of this issue are gonna be quite the gut punch for both the reader and the protagonist. I’m glad this page worked out because the composition for the following page is being difficult.

Some of my favorites are:

The Shy Guy
Cain and Able
That poor bastard who keeps slipping into other dimensions (and the Creepy smiling thing he keeps running into in that one dark dimension).
The unkillable hostile reptile
The Plague Doctor (just what is The Pestilence?)
And the Deer God

also that mask who posses people
so disturbing but yet 
so articulated 
but manipulative and deceptive

Oh yeah I forgot about the Deal with the Devil (Gentleman's Agreement?) thats a good one.

Is terrifying nonetheless

geneticmonster03Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah the shy guy 
I remember him
i still hear is uncontrollable screams of agony 

i like the graffiti predator
(basically a street art of a owl man thing that is alive and can make people come closer to it then they get ripped apart and eaten)

ah scp 682 the hard to destroy reptile
actully he served as a partial inspiration for my characterson's design
his bio shifting and morphing abilities are fun to test out


IMAGINE
SCP 682 V godzilla

I think Godzilla would finally end it. He'd blast it until it was reduced to inert ash and base atoms.

SCP 682*laughs in roars*

There was a a scenario where SCP 682 what's to be blown up by an amount of nuclear bombs in space

A single cell of him survived and he grew to the size of Saturn and proceeded to eat planets in space

So, I was right, it indeed is this guy.  While I am eager to see more characters in action I certainly don't mind seeing him instead as he is one of my fav designs from you. The mixture of worm-like structures and white, sharp bone growths is just in my taste. :D

The highlight, however, is one tiny aspect. The jawbones of that poor dude. keeping them to their natural shape while everything gets distorted gives this picture a very eerie, unsettling feeling,  It anchors the nightmare in reality. Perfect. :iconpachaplz:

Thanks, I dont know why I didnt stretch the jaw bones. It just seemed right to sort of anchor some part of the face through the who process to its original shape so that while the violence is cartoony its not so cartoony that its not still horrific. At least thats my guess, I just went on instinct with this bit.

Glad you like seeing Mr Scary in here. Initially it was going to be Mr Yuck but then inspiration hit me about two pages back before I started pencilling this.
