Well, I'm back!
I did wind up having to buy a new monitor, but the big slow-down with this panel was getting it so I was satisfied enough to put it up. I mentioned earlier that I redrew the entire panel, which killed an entire afternoon, but I also did a complete re-design of umm...one of our bad guys. I'm much happier with both the bad guy AND this panel, so it all worked out for the best.
I wanted to give the sensation of a "whipping" feeling as Liz is pulled back into darkness. This panel is an example of when the finished piece looks substantially different from the "core" artwork. Liz is lots more enveloped by blacks in the finished piece, which I think is an improvement.
Doc has been getting some pretty nice reviews of late!
Nate Sullivan, creator of the webcomic ATHRA had a very eloquent review of his (and my) hopes for Doc.
Simon Whitelaw (isn't that a cool name?) has done his own review/love letter to Doc, AND posted the entire 8-page introduction to Shadow of the Skies that appeared on ZUDA comics!
Thanks to both of you!
