* Tom really doesn't want any of this to be a big deal. If it's a big deal, then it means more work for them, and he really doesn't want that.
* Oh look, a background. Fancy that.
* Speaking of backgrounds, I didn't take into account the speech bubble and spent a bit of time of the roses in the vase. Yup, can't see them. I may be able to use them elsewhere.

* Things do not seem to bode well, all around.
* The curtains in the door were giving me trouble.
* So was the whole door.
* Not a whole lot to say for this one. Um, I really like Megan's sweater coat. I've always thought they were a neat clothing item but I'm not sure how one would look on me. So instead, I let Megan wear them.

In other comic related news, I am very pleased that I have worked more into Megan's back story and I can't wait to tell it. I think some of it will sneak out in this story arc but not a whole lot. I'll just have to wait until the right time arises to put the rest in. It should have some very pretty visuals.

Also in other comic news, I actually found some of the drawings from FF. It was quite interesting to see how I had been working and drawing before. Now I just need to make sure I put them in a safe place.

It's December already? Crap.

Page 20:
* I'm very glad I had the house done a long time ago. A bit of work went into it. I had a reference photo that I took of a house in Milford and used that for this. Although now I wish I had done some more to it. Oh well. I've been sick for the past couple days so that's my excuse.
* Tom = not impressed. I <3 him for that.
* The icon for this post is purely for my benefit.

Speaking of obsessions, I have a new one to share: there's a comic called "Finder" that I have completely fallen in love with. It's a scifi story that mostly stars a half-white/half-Native-American-type guy who is apparently immortal or at least heals up really well. Really hot. And for those of you who know me in real life: stop looking at me like that! Seriously, I don't know what makes you think that. *shifty eyes*

Anyway, check it out: http://www.lightspeedpress.com/ There are some parts online for free. Warning! There are naughty bits, so, you know, cover your eyes or something when you get to those pages if you're not up for that.

* Yup, ghost story. I've watched way too much Ghost Hunters :)
* Para, the company they work for, has teams of people who specifically look into hauntings (or lack thereof).
* The "scan and sage" Tom is talking about is pretty much gathering evidence of paranormal activity and then doing a blessing to help keep things at bay.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!

Let's see, this is page 17, I believe.

* I'm rather happy with how the lights came out. Backgrounds are a good thing!
* Is this legible? I may need to make the text bigger.
* Oh Tom, you take after your dad more than you know.

Wow, I haven't updated this journal in a while.

I've been trying to do a special comic every Halloween as that is when I first started FF. This year marks 5 years of posting comics! This year we have Megan dressed as a mermaid, Tom dressed as a vampire (he does not approve), Holly as a devil and Viv as an angel acting un-angel like. I think the only person enjoying themselves is Holly. Oh well.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween!

* And confirmation that Tom doesn't like his dad. The why will be revealed later.
* Viv did a not so subtle change of subject.
* I ended up skipping the shading on this comic. I spent too much time figuring out how to do textures with the carpet. And thanks to the compression, you can't see it *sigh* Oh well. If I ever get a chance to do this in print form, it would show up then.

In other news, I'm currently in a hotel room in Indianapolis. Fun times :)

* I think the shading shows up better in this one. I also think I was able to save the file at a better resolution than the last one. Unfortunately, I can't really control for that and file size.
* Megan looks pleased by Viv's comment while Tom does not. More on that will be said later.

I will be on vacation the next two Mondays. I should be able to have the comic pages up for each of those days but the commentary may not. Please make sure to check back!

For some reason the cover didn't update last week while I was away. So now you get the cover and a new page.

Page 4:
* I'm trying out a new shading technique. It didn't show up as well as I would have liked. Probably because I have to save in a jpeg.
* I should have done a better job running the dialog in panels two and three together. I think the space makes it seem like there's a pause when there shouldn't be one.
* Tom believe Megan just called him something along the lines of a n00b. He does not appreciate, as we will be seeing next Monday.
* On an somewhat unrelated note, I purchased the animated Hellboy movies recently. The one, "Blood and Iron," had a bonus movie-comic on it that was about a pennangalan. It made me squee if fangirlish glee. And a fan-crossover of SD and Hellboy has been poking at me a little bit. I'm just not sure I can do HB justice.

The last of the old pages. Next up is a cover and then completely new pages!

Page 3
* I thought this would be a nice way to give a full view of the two main characters.
* Their uniforms incorporate a number of protective symbols. The pentacle, a slightly modified "dag" rune, and crosses. I had originally questioned using crosses but figured a large number of people around the world use it for protection, it doesn't hurt to try. With that said, they're really only visible up close.
