Lichloved 02

By Alexandra Queen

A little girl in pink and a drab little girl look on as a beautiful woman in a pink dress greets guests at a party, standing beside her shadow knight husband, General Lichloved, and his undead skeletal servant, Floyd. Byzantium says Your mother's party is hott. Ashlinne says I love my mommy.

A little girl in pink and a drab little girl look on as a beautiful woman in a pink dress greets guests at a party. Mrs. Lichloved greets a handsome but dorky bard standing next to his wife, Hellen, a seductive necromancer with a brutish undead skeletal servant, and their son, eight year old necromancer in training, Hazzanghoul. Ashlinne and Byzantium invite Hazzanghoul to play dollies with them. He calls them little twerps and tells them to go away. Meanwhile, Ashlinne says that when she grows up, she wants to be just like her mommy. Byzantium observes Your mommy is hott.

A little girl in pink and a drab little girl at a party look on at a shadow knight preening at a seductive purr from the necromancer. Hellena sends an adulterous look to an interested General Lichloved while an oblivious Ashlinne states that when she grows up, she wants to live in a palace made of ice cream. Byzantium observes that ice cream palaces are hott and then gets confused by her own paradox.

To do over, or not to do over? I was drunk on color with this one. Also, although I had been using Photoshop for graphic design for three years now and did a 12-strip test comic, I was STILL learning volumes. I love the progression of colors (note the Samurai Jack-esque lack of outlines -- I was playing "Genndy Tartakovsky"), but the final panel is the one that hit the resonance I was going for. So much I'd do differently now...
