Jolly heads into the cave trying to escape. Its just a matter of how far back its goes, if there is another way out, and if can he get to it without a trip to the emergency room!

I'm working with a new color palette starting on this page. I want to get away from the sharper colors and see how it takes.

Plus I learned a little bit about creating glow effects! Yay, go me!

Not exactly, but it is magical.

I am having a lot of fun as I figure out more little things I can do in Photoshop. But honestly,I need to take a class so I can stop this horrible trial and error method...

Ohhh is that glowing foot of some kind! By the way the glow effects came out awesome! :D

Draginbeard
Not a foot, but it is a body part. =/

Thanks =D Im pretty excited for you guys to see the coming pages, Ive made some good progress with color and effects!

The page following this one, is probably my best 'glowie' effects page.

Oh and the shading too!

I'm hit and miss with shading, I have a little trouble envisioning how light and shadow stick, so I am using a basketball and a desk lamp as a reference....

Yeah shading is one of my problem areas too. I don't do to much shading in my comic cause I'm afraid it won't look right, lol. Yours came out nice though!

Its a bit tricky, but as with everything else, you get a little better with practice. I dont know if l would do much shading on Mad Dog, you have your line and color work down so well, l think its simply spot on as you draw it now.

oh wow !! whatever you did on this page color wise STAY WITH IT! and YAY! he found something !! *squints* could it be.. a hammer? now if he can find some armor .. or at least a loin cloth!

Thanks!

I am really happy with the new color swatches. I have a new set for both flatting and shading, and its a mix I really like so far.

As for item laying there buried in dust, it is not only a serious hazard to bare-footed dwarves, but its magical properties have reacted to his presence.

This is a good thing.

Dwarven warhammer of DOOM! +10 ! grab it Jolly!! ( unless its cursed , wait dont grab it ! )

Awww, you know he is gonna pick it up. The glowie is like putting a big 'Wet Paint' sign up. Everyone has to touch to prove it isn't wet!

How about some rock repelling shoes?
Draginbeard 15th Oct 2012, 10:28 AM edit delete reply
Draginbeard
Heh, at this point, Jolly would settle for black socks and sandals!

That glow effect does look really cool! And the sky outside the cave looks great too!

Perhaps this hammer will heal 1 HP of stubbed toe!
Draginbeard 15th Oct 2012, 10:31 AM edit delete reply
Draginbeard
I do like that sky =) And as far as his toe goes, it does heal very quickly, as if by magic. Jolly will be too distracted to notice until much later.

It is the Hammer of Irony: it heals the enemy by an equal number of HP as the damage it caused.

Now if only there was some pants for Jolly's jollies...
Magical pants!

Draginbeard
At the rate Jolly luck is going, the best piece of magic armor he'd find would probably be a loin cloth of missile attraction!

Oh my god .. you did not say that .. BUHHAHA - you know that makes a excellent item ! :D
Draginbeard 18th Oct 2012, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
Draginbeard
Yeah, long time ago we were trying to think up the absolute meanest magic items...that loin cloth was a show stopper!

On a side note; Even smart Dragons are haphazard house keepers!
Draginbeard 15th Oct 2012, 1:22 PM edit delete reply
Draginbeard
This is true. Especially in make-shift lairs.

However, this cave is definitely not part of any dragons lair.
cattservant 15th Oct 2012, 1:45 PM edit delete reply
cattservant
Ah, then there could be all sorts of interesting things laying about!
Draginbeard 15th Oct 2012, 6:10 PM edit delete reply
Draginbeard
"Interesting" is one way to describe what he is going to find.

Dwarven Warrior? Ckeck!
Glowy hammer? Check!
Armour? Not necessary!
Everything is already in place...

Lets get ready to GRUMBLE!!

Actually, there is a pretty big fight coming up...

I guess next page will feature a panel where Jolly picks up the hammer with his right hand and the corpse hand with his left hand.
You read it here first!!

Draginbeard
Its a glowie hammer! What dwarf could resist that? May as well have dipped it in beer batter.... =D
Centcomm 18th Oct 2012, 7:58 PM edit delete reply
