Comic for Monday, August 15th
The IDS Soldiers are very scary. We’ve seen an IDS boost engine in action before, but the wrist band version isn’t really on par with the real one. I’d also like to note that thinking of good ideas while holding your breathe is really hard (hold your breathe for the time it takes to read this page and last page, then try to think of things that aren’t holding your breathe! 😛 ).
I made a mistake on the page layout, which is why there is a giant open spot on the left and crowded dialogue on the right. This is also the first time (I think) I’ve resort to using a non-sound-effect sound effect with “Freeze”; no matter how else I went about it, it looked like an effect on the punch otherwise.
Mione like Naomi can naturally boost – it’s by far the most common innate ability, and there is not specific limit on only having one innate talent (though having two is far more rare, even if one of them is quite common). Of course, Naomi’s distribution of stats is… well, a little more lopsided the most…
Lastly, I’ve included the language legend at the bottom, as the languages are… well, a little important here 😉
I very rarely promote the Patreon directly, but I will take this moment to note that we are only $9 away from the first bonus comic over there 😉 This comes up as I recently drew the cover for it. I’ve decided to go back and draw chapter covers, but decided to do this one first. Whether or not this ends up being the real cover probably depends on how long it is before it actually comes out 😛
It’s called “Minus Years” being that it is an extended flash back (10-15 pages) to Peter and Kally’s first meeting. Yes, that’s a slightly younger Peter and Kally there 😉 . Figured it’d be a good time to promote it is I actually have time to draw now 😛 Interestingly, there was a decent a chance this is where the comic was going to start originally.
Just to be clear it is not yet made, if it does get made (by reaching the Patreon goal), I’ll release it to everyone eventually. Additionally, the $3 actually has it’s early updates now, so there’s that 🙂
I’ve made the first of the new side bar chibi’s, this one for to mark the voting incentive (of which there is also a new one!); thanks xpacetrue for the suggestion 🙂
In the last piece of news (yes, I know these rambling sections are ridiculously long) the buffer count hit 2 for the first time ever this weekend! This means, mindblowingly, Thursdays comic is already done. I’m about half done with Monday’s! What a time to be alive 😉
I will be drawing more art, so feel free to send along suggestions for vote incentives or sketchbooks or what not.
