Hey guys, hope you're having a good week!

We're back to Sylene and the Phantom! Now that he's helped her sort out her little emotional outburst, he has clearly opted to get some information from her...

In other news, we had horrible weather tonight, so the event got waaaay less people than it was supposed to... So they gave us an entire pizza :D Yum yum! Now, presuming I don't die on my commute home, this will have been a great night :D

(If I do die, nothing happens until 150, at which point Robert eats John, becomes a Six and destroys the world. The end.)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Does Sylene just look too weird with her hair like that?

Innocent face in panel four.

She looks different, but I wouldn't say strange.
More realistic maybe.
Magravan edit delete reply
I think she's looking thinner again...

Sorry if this has been asked before but how do you get those camo-color effects on that shirt?
alparrott edit delete reply
Hmmm, interesting where that t-shirt's design places that character's eyes... reminds me of when i was doing my GBK shirts... lol

Umm... The author's note didn't REALLY spoil the story, right? Because that ending would be depressing, yet simultaneously awesome (the powers of a Six: mind control and telekinesis?) :D enjoy your pizza!
Frosty edit delete reply
Aww, Sylene looks lovely :D
Jamming edit delete reply
Nice work on the flow of the conversation, the art of Sylene is my preference to the others. Is the Phantom what a Four would look like without the body replacements? Did I miss that explained somewhere?
redder edit delete reply
interesting ending there i think id cry :S

Faux Pas.

Such fanciness in that word.

I love Sylene's hair. ^_^ And she looks great with the new eye style!
Magravan edit delete reply
@Metsfan - I'll let June answer that one :D

@alparrott - I think that the eyes are naturally going to go there anyway, so the shirt just provides an excuse :D

@Stargirl - Unless I die, we'll go with the alternate ending :D

@Ice the frosty cat - I agree :D

@Jamming - Thank you :) And the Phantom is not big on frivilous replacements, so he's sort of ... a monstrosity in that he has the necessary replacements to keep from say... having a leg hanging off.. But he doesn't bother with the cosmetic stuff that makes them look decent.

@redder - Well, I survived, so we're going ahead with the alternate option. Unless my boss kills me before we hit 150. In which case, we'll go with that plan :D

@Sir Wishbone - Sylene's usually good for expressions ;)

@DSW - Seemed if we were going to make a French Army joke, it fit :)

@Kristy - The new eye style?
Jamming edit delete reply
I said two nice things about the writing in the same week, I must be getting soft. Got to watch that or the writer will take me even less seriously, if possible. ;)

@ Metsfan, I use a seamless cammo texture that I got from the internet, first I fill it with greens with shadows, then I select his outfit outline, then on a layer above, I fill the area with the pattern, and set it to soft light.

Does that make sense?

Love Sylene's new hair and everything else. Sad she lost her round 2...up to Beth now.
Eternal_Phantom edit delete reply
I think he beginnings to get an appreciation for her manipulation skills. Why do I get the sinking feeling this is the start of a beautiful friendship?
Magravan edit delete reply
@moizmad - Well, we didn't really advertise or make special pictures for it, so I'm happy that at least one of our characters made it through... I don't think that Beth will get to the end compared to some of the other characters that are out there, so I've already accepted the inevitable ;D

@Eternal_Phantom - Ahahaha... Well, there is certainly more to Sylene than meets the eye... Of course, I think that she destroys the credibility that she gained in this one in a subsequent strip...

i'm still voting beth!

great work on the comic. i'm happy that sylene is happy again!

Sylene's hair is pretty this way! Though her eyes have changed a lot... not in a bad way, but it does change her character a bit... she looks quite sly like this.
Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - Thank you, I'm happy that she's happy again too... I don't enjoy Sylene when she's sad as much as I enjoy her in general.. :)

@Tze - Hmmm.. Well that's not good... Sylene's not supposed to look sly ;D

i horgot to mention i think panel 4 sylene looks really cute. dunno why but she does.
Magravan edit delete reply
@redder - Glad to know the tablet was helpful to improve her drawing :D

@models S - I think it's the pose.. that's what I like from it anyway :)
Drakanor Dream edit delete reply
I believe she looks so cute because she is being coy... that seems rather manipulative to me but hey a girl has to get by somehow no?
Magravan edit delete reply
Well, she fully admitted to the tears being manipulative :D And in the fourth panel, she's mocking his intelligence gathering ;)
bbedlam edit delete reply
I think Sylene's hair looks great this way. The facial expressions have really become more.. um.. expressive. Yes, I'm being redundant.. and repetitive. But I think things look really good.
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
For some weird reason, probably to do with the arrangement of her hair, Sylene looks vaguely Asian in the last panel.
