Slumpa's approach is to always take the offensive. Looks like she offended the wrong person this time, though. Fortunately, those citadels of intellect, the profs. Asmirlan and Smal Smiles have arrived with the Smience Squad, Mauve Team

I am actually concerned about that dude in the fourth panel. RIP random Smilan :/

Looks like a draw. Both are out of commission but the monster proved to be more resilient last time so something tells it is up the rest of the team and bombs!
I would quickly feed the bombs to that big mouth :D

Just curious. Are the pages only colored or are the lines also touched? Maybe edited? Just asking. Seems to look more digital and the trace of scanned paper is also gone. Unless I am completely wrong lmao.

Ha yeah, you know how big action-y movies with stuff exploding all throughout the city try really hard to make it seem like EVERYONE is okay? NO ONE got hurt in that exploding bus? I'm not buying it.
Although the gravity on Supirion is slightly less than that of earth, and smilans are rather hardily built, so you never know...

You're right: that is a very resilient monster; and maybe a machine can only take so much damage from high-intensity sound waves, but Captain Slumpa may be another story!

As to the coloration, I'll have to let RD field that one, though I believe she paints them digitally, rather than lazily fill-tooling like SOME lazies I know *ahem*me*ahem*, which I think helps with rasterization a lot.

Yeah. Plus even if the gravity is slightly less the Smilan was hurled so I guess it is more like an impact than simply falling down and maybe splat :/
Probably RIP.

Yeah. Paint bucket is my only friend :|

Actually I'm retaining the original line work much better now that I "discovered" a very easy and obvious method in PhotoShop.
So, no, the lines aren't drawn digitally or touched up.
They just appear darker now.
Good eye, M'Jak!

I also think Ian's line work has been evolving.
It's just plain nice, huh?
I'm so jealous!

Ooh, you'll have to share! As to the line work, well... Good colors help tremendously. Except as regards the first chapter when I was using cheap pens. There's no redeeming those lines.

lmao, if you are jealous than I am closing my account :D

I think it one of the cases when the style simply works with the content, story and everything. Plus the usual influence of old animated works, Eastern EU stuff and overall "for kids" but with serious themes. You can almost see it animated. And I guess a lot of people go for something specific in mind.

Like... The girls look simple but are somehow attractive. Style works :D

Ha well, ya know... If I was happy with it, I wouldn't need to grow as an artist! At any rate, I'm pleased with it insofar as I must have done something right, because the influences, the themes, the made-for-animation quality, and the cute girls: All deliberate, and you've picked up on all of it! Thanks!

The look on Flatnote's face in panel 6 cracks me up.
"Well, that sucked."
I love that monster.

Looks like everyone was hurt by Flatnote's … sound.
Even Causeway?!

Is Captain Slumpa a girl?
Smilocide 19th Aug 2016, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
Ha! Flatnote is a crotchety monster who is acutely aware of fate's cruel jests.

Yep, Causeway was too close to that blast. His little causeways can only continue as long as they remain unbroken and he remains in motion. Down he goes.

Slumpa is a girl! She's a bramp female: meatier than most other smilans. Smilan gender is complicated, but suffice it to say that she's no shrinking violet.
