@Dadaph: Disappointed? Hardly. The more mechadendrites, the better ^_~
@kidcthulhu: Oh dear, that one's cool.
Hope you're not disappointed...
@Dadaph: https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Adeptus_Mechanicus ^_^
@kidcthulhu: Afraid I don't know who that is, but drawing mechanical electric tentacles is fun anyway.
I am getting such an Adeptus/Dark Mechanicus vibe right now and I love it!
@kidcthulhu: Oh, I do remember watching Space Ghost on early Cartoon Network as a kid, but I can't really remember much of it.
Making black lines white is something I've kinda done later, I have to admit, though a lot more blurry than others have done.
I think you did fine with the implied invisibility here. It beats the "make all the black lines white and don't use any other colors" style used on Space Ghost when he'd use his "invis-o belt".
@kidcthulhu: Thanks. I got super happy with this page myself.
Love the way the first two panels are reminiscent of a camera pan (ie, if this was film, the camera would be moving down from the sky to the horizon as Aris flew).
There is something about the emperor's face last panel. It's a real interesting mix of emotion.
I feel bad for being mean to Aris, but this is her story and it needs some dark moments to break her a bit. I'm sorry. I wanted to use Leeroy here to maybe lighten up the mood a bit, but it will get worse. Much worse.
Speaking of which, Chapter 25 starts June 1st!

I've had this story on my mind for the last 20 years, and while it's fun to finally tell it, making a buck or two while doing so does a lot for my motivation.
Or just read and leave a comment if you like, that helps too.
Talking of unintentional foreshadowing, I think this one worked out...
So here's the ghost, and the idea it shows up as whoever people are most afraid of. That might reveal a thing or two unintentionally. Showing the point of view of each panel thus became important and challenging. The final panel in particular, as both Leeroy and the goons are actually talking... but in the end, I believe it becomes clear the goons are the ones seeing the ghost as another Leeroy, as they're in the foreground, and they're actually commenting on it.
This page was a challenge in a way I didn't really prepare for. How to release some information without telling too much, and foreshadow something at the same time? No idea if any of that worked, but we'll see...
Those electrical tentacles might actually be paladin killers... IF they were wielded by someone else.
Poor Leeroy, my original Mary Sue from the very first version of this story I made when I was 13... I'll never be sick of picking on him...
Oh no, who can he possibly be?
Mechanical tentacles with the power of lightning... one thing I didn't really plan out ahead, just thought it would be a cool thing do add to the character there and then. I write the story ahead of time, but when it comes down to the details, I flesh them out on the drawing board. Easy way to keep myself engaged even when the story is already written.
Well that information may complicate things...? Who works for who? Who is the real boss?
In retrospect (I made this chapter last June)... that dirty warehouse floor is pretty shiny, ugh... shouldn't have pointed that out.
As for Mr. L, I'm happy to finally show that character.
Drawing someone invisible is... a challenge, because they're there, but they're not visible to anyone.
Not even sure this is the right way to do it, but I think I'm getting the point across.
