I looked at the sound effects and dialog I had written for this page again, once I had it finished, then threw it all out. I think the image says everything I wanted.

The only thing I really struggled with, is the background color. After messing around with greys, blues, and greens, I came back to the orange. It adds an impact and threat that the other colors did not convey.

Coloring is freaking hard work, man.

I agree this page works best as a silent one. :D

This one will very likely end up as a print or poster or something. I just like how it came out.
Centcomm 5th Aug 2013, 7:48 AM edit delete reply
I totally agree.. poster it is!

I wish I had a better understanding of how to use them. Its tough right now, but I'm learning.
Rinkel 5th Aug 2013, 1:41 PM edit delete reply
There is always something to learn. :)

Awesome page! I think the orange in the background works really well too - you've chosen wisely! :)

Thanks =D. Thank god for digital, trying to do this right in a more traditional medium would have me tearing out my hair.

Very cool page and a very gruesome end to our resident giant red monster!

It looks like new opportunities are really opening up for Jolly! Like, a way out of the cave!

Thanks =)

This does open up new...openings for the Bearded One. But not until next chapter. The last few pages are set aside for the rest of our cast.

I'm especially fond of the next page, for there be Dragons on it!

cool splash page. I love what you did here. Can't wait for the next update
Draginbeard 8th Aug 2013, 6:45 AM edit delete reply
Thanks, I enjoyed working on this one a lot.

next page is one I like just because I get to write dragon dialog again.

Should be safe to say he has been thwarted! Nice work with all the falling debris, the splash page came out really nicely!
Draginbeard 9th Aug 2013, 2:28 PM edit delete reply
Thanks, glad you guys like the page =)

And yeah, sometimes you can tempt Fate and get away with it, but Fate will eventually come knocking to collect its due.

Coloring IS difficult. I think the key thing is to go with what looks good without regard to whether it makes sense or not. This one looks great! Orange works good in this scene.

Thanks =)

I'm going to go ahead and play around, but in the end, if I like it, it stays in.
