#151 | Chapter 5, Page 27 Posted by: Clownfish Studios , February 2, 2012 Comic Transcript Panel 3 SFX: BOOM! Panel 4 Tristan: If you’d given me a few minutes I probably could’ve opened it without destroying it. Share! Tweet Liz Staley Honestly now, where is the fun in THAT? Kambrea Pratt I know!! Just a reminder. WEBReeF starts today at noon. Check it out. There will be a Fantasy Comics Round table tonight at 8PM. Shadowbinders will be on it. Then Sat. night there is a Q & A session with us. Stop by! chat.shadowbinders.com Benjamin William Schweitzer Well if the party doesn’t have a rogue to disarm the traps that’s the next best thing. That said I would love to be able to play in this world with my friends. Kambrea Pratt I wish I could go there too! Xavier Davidson Like many people before me and doubtless many to come, I have just read through your archive and quite like what I have seen. Kudos to both artist and writer, your work is excellent. If I may critique one thing, it is the copy and pasting of the art in the first two panels of this page. I understand that it is an excellent time-saving technique, but it is a tad too obvious here, at least in my humble opinion. The background does make due reasonably well. Even though strands of windblown grass/seaweed would likely have moved in the implied time between the panels, it isn’t an overly noticeable detail. (It would have been nice to see the hanging bit be affected by the explosion in panel 3, but again, that’s a minor issue.*) The copied character art is what really draws attention (pun not intended, but enjoyed nontheless) to the issue. In fact, I don’t think I would have noticed the reused background were it not for Rhen’s veritably rock-solid stance being held perfectly for two panels in a row. The problem does not lie in the fact that he remains stoic while exercising his magical prowess, of course. The issue is that he isn’t moving at all. The hair is, if my observations are correct, being blown back by the wind. It would help maintain the illusion of time and motion between panels, then, if the hair was drawn slightly differently in panel 2. Likewise, it would add a bit of flavour if the fingers twitched ever so slightly when releasing the magical aura/lightning/power, though this is only my personal taste. Again, please, please keep in mind that these are only minor nitpicks and that the two of you really are doing an excellent job. Keep up the good work, I can’t wait to see more. (*This is assuming that the green stuff is in fact seaweed or some other type of vegetation that possesses the same general characteristics as that of our world, and not some oddly shaped barnacles or rocks.) Kambrea Pratt Welcome! Glad to have you. Thank you for your very well though out comment. We agree with you. Kneon may fix it in a few days. We did copy and paste. There was a good reason for it. Time. This week Kneon did the pages and put together a complete online convention in a few days. In order to accomplish both, he had to copy and paste. Again, thank you for your comment and welcome aboard. Kambrea Pratt Kneon and I will be on a Shadowbinders Q&A panel tonight at 7PM EST in the WEBReeF forum Video Room 1 (located in the drop menu under the Conference Rooms button) Please come and support us!!! Kneon will be on video Cam to answer you questions. chat.shadowbinders.com The Forgotten Order phew, just read thru the entire archive. Im enjoying everything so far and getting into the story. I really love the characters expressions! it adds so much fun. Anyways I saw your talk on WebReef, and I have to say I would not mind the occasional Crimson Rhen fan servce. haha =D Kambrea Pratt Thank you! I had read your comic as well. I like your art style. Kelly Seitz Exploding the hatch was obviously the only solution. Matt K Well, maybe not the only solution, but who cares about non-explodey solutions?
