Like I said, a lot of trouble differentiating him from Martina. Fortunately Martin came up with an idea for fixing it; while Martina would use spells to fight herself alongside Franklin or her Constellations, Antlers is a more hands-off kind of guy and isn't afraid to let his men handle it themselves. This also shows that his followers are less than important to him.

I will say; the designs for the two being turned into animals (specifically a bear and an owl) were really hard to do. This is NOT how they wind up looking; this is just kinda a mid-transformation thing and we'll see the real designs come Saturday. Reason for that is I had something very particular in my head for both of them going in, which is what you see here, but when the page was done I realized the look didn't work at all. They're way too cuddly and... Animal-Crossing-ey. I wanted them to look more monstrous which is what we'll see on Saturday and the rest of the fight.

That third bloke who's just lit on fire... His design's fine, it'll be a bit before you see him closer.

Do hope the dialog doesn't get too hard to follow in that one huge panel... Again, I wanted to keep Antlers' face a little bit difficult to see, and partly obscured. Once we hit on the idea I thought this might be fun; having the shield be just too transparent for him to be clearly shown. Great work on Martin passing that off. ^^ Speaking of, shield is supposed to look like a tortoise shell; again, Antlers' spells have a nature motif.

This really is sorta a cliffhanger page, isn't it? Even for me; I really, really want to get to Saturday so the fight can start in full. ^^

The detailing on the owl guy is going to change around a fair bit as the fight goes because... Man, it was a pain whenever he'd show up more than once in a page. I do really like how pretty much the whole fight came out, even if it was very time-consuming to do. Hopefully everyone enjoys it as it does move along.

This fight'll also get more and more detailed as it goes on. Like those vines, I didn't realize there were any pages where I didn't detail those. They are for the vast majority of the sequence, and plenty of new stuff will be getting detailed as well as we go along.

Given his sexuality, insert jokes about Alex straddling the back of a bear.

The chaos has already started, what did Antlers just do and if those spells are non-reversible then that says something very bad and scary about Antlers mentality.

Heheh.... There was a consideration if the spells would be reversible or not, but we'll see the answer to that later. ^^

All I can think about is Antlers breaking out into a medley of "Little Shop of Horrors" songs.
