Gonna update the website in about an hour. My internet connection is so slow... but... at least I'm officially moved in to my new home!! About time, haha. Now if only we could get the internet and washing machine hooked up...
I think this set of pages (and the next set, since I did them together) took longer than any other set for this chapter for some reason. All the tones, I kept messing up the flames... bleh. I put a little more effort into the night scenes and those buildings and such because I was kind of disappointed with how they'd come out in previous pages. I was also trying to make up for the bad character art, so I threw in way more line work and such for the backgrounds. Every page is a new learning experience!
Poor Vox is going to be used as a furniture-zapping service in the next chapter as well. He would have made my life so much more convenient had he been around in the real world while I was moving earlier this month!
I've just got to get these other two girls out to see the action and the team will finally have their names! I can't wait, but at least these two have their names! I'm glad I was able to fit Sa-- mystery man into this volume since he becomes a much bigger character from Ch. 9 onward. It works as a nice little teaser of things to come :3
Oooooh, I am just so loving that shot of Sam. He looks so hot! Just everything about it! His glove, the way he's touching his hat, his hair, his face, his expression--everything! Love it, love it, love it!
**Man calling the cops** "Yeah he's just sitting up their looking ominous with a giant scythe... I don't know like an hour maybe? Alright then hurry I think there's some purple haired chick talking with him now."
"Giant scythe this, giant scythe that, that's all I ever hear. You know, if it weren't for this silly phobia of yours we could have stayed in the countryside! I had bees there, honey! BEES! BEES AND FRIENDS!"
I think we all can agree to cigars tasting great so I wouldn't want to take that away from him. But I was actually thinking of him fitting better in with both the rest of the crew and his own theme song. (For those new amongst us, Vox super-official theme song is Disco Tex And The Sex-O-Lettes "Get Dancing". www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwUQWa… )
