This thing looks a lot more like a Stargate than I’d intended. I mean, it’s a circle with some crap attached to it, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Still, I hadn’t finalized the dialog for this page until after I had all the pencils done, so I thought I would preempt the comparisons by having Vale bust on Deus about it.

This is one of those pages I wanted to compress this and the next one into a single page, but I recently spent two hours recently one night rereading a chunk of the comic, and while I generally enjoy reading my own comic, the two things I thought could be better, (besides the odd panel that desperately needs some new art) was honestly, I think the font is a little small. Part of that is the size and resolution of my monitor. It’s 27″, but the res is 2560 x 1440, so everything is a bit smaller than on most smaller but lower res monitors.

The other thing I noticed was that there are definitely a few places where I didn’t really visually show what’s going on as well as I could have. A paper comic has a bit more space to take the time to show the steps in a sequence. Mangas especially, because they’re trying to fill something like 10-12 pages a week. I’m usually trying to fit a… I don’t quite know what to call it. A complete thought on a single page because of the wait between pages. Not a whole scene, but I really want each page to be its own… clause?

Anyway, I thought instead of trying to cram this page and the next onto one, I’d take the time to space them out and have a few larger panels. Man, I really packed the panels in on those earlier pages. I think my record is 17. That’s just nutty.
