Oh Benny boy, what's up with you, mate?
When I finished this one, I realized I'd done it three times in a row. Cliffhangers, that is. Augh! That wasn't the intention, I swear...! I'm sorrrry!

For this page I thought it might be fun to create "panel evolution" gifs, showing my process, sort of, from sketch to final version!

I did the 2nd panel because I rather like the way Felix ended up:

As you can see, I tend to deviate from the sketch layer haha. Whether or not this is a good habit to get into depends entirely on the person, I suppose; it doesn't cause me much harm, even when drawing with a mouse (fun fact: Back during the very very early pages, I didn't even use a sketch layer! I don't suggest doing this at home, kids). That panel stayed more or less the same, though. Panel four however changed up a little:
(Yes, I do die a little inside whenever I make some nice looking wrinkles on his clothes only to have to cover them up with that damn color)

Looking back on it now, both sketches are rather derpy! I tend to be messy as all hell when doing them, haha.

Gosh these gifs make it look like it takes me no time at all. I wish! This page took me damn near 3 days! I dunno why. It's not overly complicated compared to some other pages. Still! I enjoy every minute of the process.

And also!
From the "Steal a character from another comic" thread, the awesome Unsavory of "This Hostile Universe*" drew up one for WA!
This was great. Just the thing I needed after a terrible weekend! For most of it I kinda just wanted to crawl into a hole somewhere and die. But stuff like this cheers me up so much! During it's short time on CF, This Hostile Universe easily became one of my favorite comics, so it was /really/ cool seeing Oliver interacting with Benjamin! :D
(* It's so weird and awesome, all at once!)

TL;DR Awesome things and gifs

He looks like he's just seen something awful...
I wait with bated breath to see what he sees...

YOU are totally doing that on purpose Sea! You can't fool me. :D

Hahah! I'd love to say I pulled this evil crap on purpose, but alas. For a long time now I've played these scenes out in my head, and considered how each page would go. And I just sorta followed along that set of thoughts, and then when I was done...

"Wait. Shit."

Ha ha! The actual subtext of my post was "this is excellent!"

Whoa. Darn those cliffhangers! Ben just looks crazy in this one since you can't see what he sees. XD
Seabiscuit 17th Nov 2014, 1:25 AM edit delete reply
Hehehe. I feel bad. ;D
Glad I got the crazy across! Poor Benny boy.

I enjoyed seeing the GIFs! Great process stuff :D hehe, I like your 'derpy' sketches XD

Gosh, three cliffhangers in a row! Dang, that had better be one heck of a delicious pancake or something that Benny is looking at, or I'ma rage! XD (kidding kidding)
Seabiscuit 17th Nov 2014, 11:13 AM edit delete reply
Haha, I'm glad! ;D
I love seeing peoples processes, and making one for my own stuff was fun!

Haha, sorry!;P I think people will be disappointed come next page...But it will amount to something in the end.

I was almost very annoyed when I saw you cliffhangered us for the third time. But it was an accident, so it's fine.
Seabiscuit 17th Nov 2014, 11:12 AM edit delete reply
Aww, jeez! I'm sorry!

I don't mind the cliffhangers so much as they always keep me coming back as soon as I've seen that you've updated ;D
Seabiscuit 17th Nov 2014, 4:12 PM edit delete reply
Haha! Thank you for that ;D

What if the scene pans over and you just see a clown? What would a wasteland clown look like?

Dang it, seabiscuit sitting there cliffhangin' n shit!
Seabiscuit 17th Nov 2014, 8:15 PM edit delete reply
Haha! I'm sure it would involve tentacles, claws, and fangs. As if clowns needed anything else added on to them!

HEH. Seabitchscuit strikes again!

You know when he is too scared to talk it's something pretty bad...or he's trying to hold back a questionable fart. Either way it's scary.
Seabiscuit 17th Nov 2014, 9:54 PM edit delete reply
Heh, very true. As for that last bit...Probably not.;)
