Drake's quite the bastard. Not only has he sent the villagers off splunking on a wild goose chase, he also let poor Mr. Redeye sit and stew while he wound his way through his lengthy explanation.
And yes, those of you who said that he was going to help the vamp at the start of this whole mess were right, it just took Drake a while to figure that out. He's quite the bleeding heart, isn't he? Amoung Solifidians, new vampires are seen as children, so that's how Drake's going to treat him.
I forgot to mention this earlier, but I'm using Bram Stoker's description of vampires as a model, meaning red eyes, slit pupils, pointed ears, pointed nails, and of course, pointed teeth. Redeye's nifty vest is gone because there was no way it would have survuved what he went through, as cool as it is. Earlier fitz's dad mentioned that redeye was seen stealing clothes, and that's where the new outfit came from.
My photoshop went psychotic again on this page. It became convinced that 700 pixels equaled 416 inches, and applied the pixel measurment to the image, but the inches measurement to the text. The upshot of this was that I had to save the image as a jpg, open it again in photoshop, and then add the text and save it as a jpg again. This means that the image quality is a bit lower than usual, sorry guys.
The next coulpe of updates will be automated since I'll be off in Ireland and away from my computer. This means that I wont be able to reply, but I'll still be updating at a regular pace. I'll se you guys again in two weeks.
Now, plenty of your panels have made me giggle like a little girl before, but this one is the first to make me laugh out loud. Laughing out loud, very out loud mind you, while watching Donnie Darko, is not very considerate to those who haven't seen the film before and aren't getting it, so they hit you in the head. Thanks a lot. You got me hit in the head.
re teurastaa: Drake does seem to look better upsidedown, that's rather odd.
re Sidheprincezzz: I did try to make him so, I mean, who ever heard of amain character who was a vampire and not sexy? They don't exist. Bahamoot requires sexy vampires.
re Roy D Mylote: Donnie Darko? I love Frank, even though he gave me nightmares. Sorry about the hit on the head, did they get it in the end?
re Lucida: yeah, drawing folks upsidedown is weird. You have to work alternating between drawing upsidedown and rightside up. A vrry odd experiance.
Delete UglyKitten:I love drawing the expresions for Drake because of his ears. The vamp's ears aren't quite as expressive, but they're fun too.
