Heheh... Yeah, the fight continues, with Paxton just... clearly LOVING being a heel and getting to beat the shit out of someone in public. Clearly loving this.... The fight in general is very brutal and rough, and was tons of fun to draw. In particular likes Sareena desperately pushing him out of the ring, football-tackle-style. Martin even added a black eye to her as she did so, which made her expression so much more crazed and angry. ^^

I liked doing the extra-large "BOOO!" behind Paxton in the third panel. Something sort of different and just looks great... In general, the crowd reactions in this page was probably my favorite part of this page. Really takes advantage of the setting.

Kinda all I got, weird one to comment on.... Hope you guys enjoy. ^^

Well, that's Sareena and Misty alone having gone through five of the six. Sareena's hurting right now though so maybe it'll end up falling to Ana to have to close things up? We'll see I suppose, but next page starts Sareena's rematch with Mr. Atlanta after having lost to him before.

A bit of experimenting done extremely last minute on this page - we've been playing around with working with dark grey instead of with black for the past few days, and I found a way to cleanly convert the lines to the color we've been using and applied it here on the heads and backgrounds; could've also done it with the dialogue and panels easily enough but wanted to kind of focus on one thing at a time first. Funny enough it's sort of experimenting that would have happened anyway because the next Blues page was half-accidentally drawn in this way; probably just going to be the norm from now on since we do think it makes things look a lot more smooth. There may also be a shift to thicker lines in general at some point, we're going to need to play around with that further, but we're still kind of playing around with that one, probably be something we experiment with in the next round of filler or something.

In either case, yeah, pretty happy with this one. Think has some good action to it and Paxton comes off as pretty deranged. A touch that was very on purpose here is Sareena beating him without actually using her magic at all; think other than countering Knight's cheating she's trying to really keep up the appearance of a level playing field. Of course, Atlanta has powers so he'll be fair game.

Heh. Certainly not the kind of guy you'd think you'd want on the payroll, huh?

Wait did Leith plane this whole thing, if so then he is smarter then I thought. Showing everyone that the Patriot Initiative are crazy that they would hire this mad man.

Well Paxton's doing a good job of showing the spectators the true face of the Patriot Initiative, wonder what's going to happen next.
