Hero's Dilemma 01-06

Chapter 1, Page 6

 005 - Escape

Oh snap, son. Now you've gone and made her angry.

I've been experimenting a bit with pencil shading. I still have a lot to learn-- especially using the right shades to make it come out right after scanning, etc., but I think I like it more than what I did with the previous page.

And, of course I don't realize that I forgot to put in the sound effects until just before posting it...


  1. This series is awesome. I especially like the first three color pages.

    On this page though, the shading seems a bit awkward, particularly on the ambassador. I feel like comic shading should still have alot of contrast, the smear of grey doesn't feel right to me.

    Also, it took me longer then it should have to realize that there was a force field protecting that guy. To try and make sense of the situation my brain somehow concluded that paragon jumped in front of her second attack (which I still thought was the first one).

    1. Thank you Patrick! Yeah, I like the color ones more, too.
      Yeah, I'm still trying to get the hang of good shading. But since I'm no longer on a tight update schedule (which I couldn't keep up with anyways), I will probably be able to do all of them in color.
      I guess that by "second attack" you are talking about the lightning bolt on the next page. I think it was more clear in the original short story.
