Full-Spectrum Therapy

by alkaplan
A queer, supernatural body-horror drama about a group of teenagers living in the aftermath of an alien invasion.

Troubled teen Damien Aattou was looking for a way out -- instead, he found a new way to let "Them" in. His persistent admirer and childhood best friend, Quin, vows to help him, but while doing so attracts the unwanted attention of their school's rookie Empath -- a specialized paranormal professional. Accompanied by Quin's unrelenting ex, Tayler, and her bandmates, the boys must dodge blame for the recent flux of alien outbreaks around town while trying to mend their troubled relationship and find solace.

@Guest: Haha... I based this on my very limited experience with lipstick where I used super expired stuff and couldn't for the life of me get it off >_>

So, so sweet to see this. Such a tender, human moment in the middle of such dislocation and fear.

The mirror and all the detail in the first panel is awesome, but what really hit me on this page was the nuance in the softening of his expression in panel 4...

let's see, a teenager newly returned home from a toxic environment into an abusive one, who doesn't have control over his own mind and doesn't know if he can trust the one person he relies on to be there for him and help him? Y'know what, BJ, I could hazard a guess

@Chirurotsu: Hahaha thanks!

I guess it's fun to get a glimpse into the process. I always like seeing just layouts or pencils of comic pages

Also I love seeing your inked pages before they are colored. There's so much mood in this

NEW LOOK?
--Kidding. I'm a bit snowed-in right now so I don't have access to the scanner I regularly use for pages. Enjoy this quickly-edited photo from my phone! (Expect the usual scan tomorrow or with Wednesday's update)

**UPDATE: Page has been scanned and updated!

@guest: Thank you T_T I originally sketched this page showing their faces, but that way seemed to give the wrong sort of impact... more corny and over-dramatic.

@cornchipwarrior: Ah hey, thanks so much! I was a little afraid the leaves wouldn't read right, so I'm glad to hear it worked!
