God, tonight's been a stressful night. At least it's gone in a good direction on the whole, even if a bumpy ride getting there. All I'll say on that subject.

So yeah, fight continues! It doesn't show much in this page but we actually pretty heavily changed how we do the coloring process with this page (well, actually with the WaR one drawn before this, but it's not up yet). Should allow for doing a lot more detail in backgrounds and help a lot with consistency between panels on that front. Next page is a pretty good show on that front.

Still pretty happy with how this page came out though. Think the lighting on it looks really good and everyone pops against the background pretty well, plus a lot of flashy stuff going on. Roundabout this point was when I made a suggestion to Adam about how to have the fight proceed that he really liked, so guess we'll see how things go when we get to that paying off.

I really love the visuals of this fight. I put in all those motion lines (swipe of MM's arm, swing of Lore's fist) just to punch up the visuals a bit and a little goes a long way. Especially the moon and stars in the last two panels. Just makes things look a lot grander and more amazing. A few pages in this fight ahve looked super-boring and trying to keep it fun to just stare at. ^^

I was really split when I started the script for this as to how the kids should be getting split up, but hardly matters because they could tell what he was doing and stuck together.

Speaking of, I really like how Grant and Nicky are able to duck and dodge Marvelous Man's beams but Lore just tanks it. Given how she flash-steps up toward him a few panels later (Hey, been a while sicne we've seen her do that!) she's apparently no worse for the wear.

If nothing else, I at least need to give Marvelous Man credit for one thing...only apparently shooting his energy attack at those three instead of at Val who is visibly already too tired to fight, and Jenny who is preoccupied holding her up. Andy, he probably should have paid some attention to, but that’s his loss, hopefully literally in pages to come.

But good on him for not just laying into their already worn out team mate. I’d be willing to bet it is entirely unintentional on his part, or else because he sees the others as a more prominent threat, but at least he isn’t playing off the old ‘If you don’t want me to hurt your friend, give in now’ ploy, so yeah. I am willing to give him credit for that.

Even as I say this, I understand it is possible he will invalidate this and attempt to go after her at another point but meh. We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it!

Yeah, given he knows Valerie can absorb energy given he was intentionally pumping more into her a few pages ago, felt it would've been grabbing the Idiot Ball to shoot some at Val this time. Likewise I think he's intentionally trying to swing for Andy since he's going after Andy's half of the team while keeping the others at bay.

Oooooh, Mr. Marshals said a bad word... XD

In all seriousness, great page. You can really tell MM is getting worn down- and hopefully this is all getting caught on tape, to further humiliate him.

Heheh... Gladja like. ^^ Really am trying to play out the idea that he's losing steam the longer the fight goes on.
