Oh crap, I'm pretty sure they're about to fight Author Write Us.
Funny thing about this page, initially it was exported without the dialogue. When I noticed that just before submitting it, I actually kind of considered keeping it that way since it still kind of worked; I decided against it mostly because it's only in that couple of panels anyway and we just recently had two dialogue-free pages anyway.
Anyway, I'm really happy with how this whole page came out. Just look at those sand effects! Granted, they were done differently in the last panel than from the rest of them, since I discovered that the way I was doing it was taking way too long. I asked Adam to try and find something for the last panel, he found a way to do it much easier, and that's the sort of effect you'll probably be seeing for sand and maybe some other things from now on.
It's weird given the comic's mainly set in Atlanta how much sand has been seen in this thing.
Anyway, next week's page has two different characters having their first pieces of dialogue. It's probably fairly obvious which ones but feel free to guess!
Well, the part where they first met the mystery woman was in the desert, so there's that... But yeah, enjoyed this a good deal. ^^ Back when we were first doing the sand in A Time For Play, it was still in Paint and just sorta bland and dull. With Manga Studio it's a lot of fun to just play with.
Finally did touch the "tone" tool in Manga Studio, hence where that last panel's sand effect comes from. What're the thoughts, everybody? Love it? Hate it? We did enjoy making it a good deal. We're really hoping folks'll enjoy the comic fight scene.
Not much else to say... Again, sand was fun to do, every panel was just enjoyable to draw. Also liked slipping in that edited-Laura from the earlier pages. So yeah, that's it. ^^
Ada and Hareena? I think the sand effect looks cool, looking forward to seeing what happens next.
