So, on the one hand, I kind of wish I'd pushed the lighting in the second panel to be more ominous. Even if I hadn't set the bar unusually high with the last page, part of me would still want to really make that panel more imposing and scary looking than I had time to here. It's how Megaweapon perceives the situation, anyway. But here's the other thing: IT'S TRIGGER. This kid couldn't be ominous to save his life. The meanest he's ever been is STILL more huggable than you and I will ever be. Just getting him to scowl like that was one of the more challenging artistic things I've had to do for a while. It's probably for the best that I couldn't do more mood lighting this time.

EDIT: So, I decided to quit bellyaching and actually do something for once. Extra shadows added, and it helps. I WANTED to throw in some back lighting, too, but I couldn't think of a good way to show that on Trigger's already pasty-white torso. YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE RAMPANT DANGERS OF SHIRTLESSNESS.

But yeah, there you go. The trap is fully sprung. But is that all there is to say on the subject? Tune in Friday and find out!

And, of course, there's a new Killer Station of Deadly Doom too!

Ominous lighting could have made the large panel more impressive.
Still, he's got Megaweapon scared of him. That doesn't seem so bad.

And although I agree with Trigger's huggableness and not seeming ominous, with a little knowledge of what he's done and what he's capable of... I think I would be a good idea to at least be wary of him.

Incentive: That's the expression I would expect to see when he has a pretty good idea where he went.

Jenna won't believe Trigger once he tells her what happened.
Yeah, no one will be able to take him seriously.

Okay, there. Lighting is improved.

@Seros Senric: That's certainly one possible reason for Ichabod's face. Then again, another one might be the sheer horror of NOT knowing where he is, thus making an already dangerous situation even more unpredictable. I wonder which possibility is worse?

@CarrotSticks: That's going to be an... interesting conversation, alright.

So you seem pretty familiar with TV Tropes...

Assuming you've looked at it already, what was your first reaction to seeing a page about your webcomic?

CarrotSticks, March 20th, 2012, 4:22 pm

Much better with lighting. :D

1st reaction: "THAT'S SO AWESOME!!!"

2nd reaction (immediately after the 1st): "Oh man, I TOTALLY need to add this and this and this and..."

Back lighing...
....is like my favorite lighting technique. The underlighting looks fabulous though!
