Heheh.... Yeah, Poppy Tear left a pretty big impact on us immediately. This page came out just precisely, with a few things we're very proud of in the lineart. She immedaitely shows just how dangerous her strings are and it leaves a pretty good impression. Me and Martin are both happy that she manages to be very expression despite the mask, conveying all of her malice through pure body language.

In particular I love that fifth panel where her cords whip everyone int he room away from her. Was really afraid it wouldn't convey properly in the art but you can totally tell what's going on. ^^

I kinda threw in Xmarlek's hat coming off just as a "throw it in" sorta thing, but I really like how it makes it clear he's really losing control of the situation. Also I was kinda glad I didn't have to draw it again.

Yeah, this is a page I'm pretty happy with; I feel like it looks a lot more dynamic than usual for us, especially the fourth and fifth panels. I'd like to try to get that kind of framing in fight scenes more often, being more on the frantic and animated side.

Think a lot's really communicated right away here in terms of Poppy Tear's abilities; we'll kind of learn more specifically what it is she's doing and how those cables (or strings, I guess would be the more appropriate way to describe them) work in a little bit but for now I think it makes for a good striking visual and it's clear right away that she's a major threat.

Another thing I'm fond of here is getting a little more insight into the Light That Remembers specifically; from here we've got that they want to open the locks as part of a vision for the world at large, and at least in Poppy's case, she takes that cause very seriously. That's something we'll explore further later, but it does at least give a bit more idea of what the Light wants to accomplish.

Okay this is complete chaos, what in the world is going to happen now.
