SUDDENLY! MONSTER DEER! OH NOES!

So, yeah, this was way, waaaaay outside my comfort zone. While the kids fought animal-monsters before, those were human henchmen made into beasts, so there was this anthropomorphic aspect to it. Here the idea is that Antlers is transforming actual animals in the forest, so there's no human element to it. Now I'm just taking animals and making them horrifying and I have no idea what I'm doing.

This was again another aspect saved by the color job. When I finished the line-art I was pretty iffy but getting the colored version back had me pretty excited. The deer and especially the fox looked great, and exactly as creepy and frightening as I was hoping for. Love the green eyes especially. Was just a neat little touch in the office building but in the forest it's soooo much creepier.

They're talking about that rooster in the first panel, by the way. Funny story; it was Martin's idea to make Spencer adopt it as a pet, but he assumed Mr. Uvula would turn up in a bird-cage or something. He was rather pleasantly surprised to find Spencer's okay with just letting him strut around his penthouse.

Not sure what I have to say here, though am pretty happy with the page. Just keep going back to, "I need to pick up the pace," with Blues; as if you couldn't tell, this is kind of a busy, time-consuming sequence to color. Particularly given we're far from through on the weird visuals.

It is a fun one, mind you. Quite enjoying where it's been, where it's going, and where it will go.

I like how we've seen at least two unrelated parties just hanging out in this forest, apparently just outside of the area where the sky turns dark red and the mutant animals from hell start swarming. Makes you wonder how often random people hiking stumble across these things.

And the group just walked right into a horror movie, makes you wonder how Stranger made it all the way to Antlers by himself.

I think Antlers just saw the number of people coming at him this time and thought he'd head them off. ^^
