Well, if I get hit by a bus today I know that I was doing my best--this is the level of work that I owe myself.

Goddamn, look at that sucker burn.

That blur, that smoke, that burning oil.
Inferno well done.
At the very bottom there is Satan in an ice cube. But then there is Eric even lower, drinking with that ice cube in his glass.

"Abandon ship ye who sail here."
Brave of them to cruise the burning seas.

You deserve much more people reading this TT_TT
Where are they? :/

I could easily type up a self-serving response where I feel bad for my numbers, but that would be all so much BS. I have you guys, my friggin' prizewinning comments section and I wouldn't trade you for all the numbers in the world--I've seen plenty of webcomics with way bigger stats but way less back-and-forth.

The fire I'll be addressing in a forum thread, but water is something I've been working on this whole segment and yeah, I like how "base layer + gradient + gradually increasing solid airbrush" turned out. Thanks!

"GET DOWN!" Isn't it cute, Amanda wants to get Eric dancing... lol

Great artwork Lir, I really like the panel-in-panel look that you're doing, it's pretty unique compared to the comics I subscribe to on CF. I don't know how familiar you are to "Gone With the Blastwave", but here's a link http://bit.ly/1MsLqLY to one of Kimmo Lemetti's pages of which yours reminds me for some reason.

Thank you for the recommendation, and thank you very much for the reminder of something earlier in this chapter that I need to be consciously mirroring.

This page is phenomenal Lir!
:-o

The colours in the smoke and fire.
The effect of the boat emerging from the flames.
Wowsers.

I like how Amanda's strap busted in the last frameā€¦ those details. ;-)

Love the fire effects. I always suck at the fire effects, which is the reason you have not seen fire in my work...

This was the first page that I realized the full power and glory of the air brush.

Because heh heh I used to try to draw this stuff with ellipses... yeah that doesn't work too hot.
