Reed and Gart... can this end well?

--

I figured the artwork needs further contrasting up, and some more clean-up as well. At the one hand I want it to be "raw" and organic, rather than polished and glossy, but at the other hand it should not look overly sketchy, that may come off as lazy or as "just a draft". Still working on finding the right balance, I'm not quite "there" yet, but I think I'm on the right track.

So older pages will be fixed, gradually, every now and then, starting with the current issue 2, and after than issue 1. I'll let you know in the author comment box when such changes have been done.

The new Issue 2 title page is already up. For comparison, the previous version can be found here.

---

Edit (05.31.16): Just had to tone down this scene. While it was great fun having Reed and Gart yell at each other, there was the risk of coming off as too hostile, which just wouldn't make any sense.

Hope for the best, and fear the very worst! Should things escalate - Well, there are the four bodyguards...

It's very exciting following the story!

I like the new title page for issue #2 better than the previous version.

Thanks :D

This is how all pages will be changed. Real black flats and cleaner lines, less pencilly sketchiness. I like pencil shadings, but when it looks "unfinished" not so much.

I think you did a great job in conveying emotion. The president showed a huge emotional swing on this page, from very angry to calming down.

Great to hear it worked out :D The president is indeed very conflicted here and that shows. With a whole lot of effort he managed to pull himself together in order to deal with this the diplomatic way. It may be a good or a bad idea ...

It looks like Mr. President really, really wants to kick them out...but that would be rude, not to mention undiplomatic!

Oh yes, that. He would have the law on his side, but - Perhaps not really the smartest thing to do, diplomacy wise, throwing more oil onto the fire than already D:
