Every time I see a Maximum Destruction page, I get excited, but then remember that you still have Secret Wars to complete. While I can't wait until your finale to Secret Wars, I am really enjoying your pages for MD right now. Page layouts, colors, dialogue - it's all very gripping. I'm interested in seeing how you plan on having Vigil getting captured...
And, did someone say Vigil in a gold bikini...I might need to think of a way to do that
Thanks for the kind words - I haven't had much time to draw lately and the art mojo isn't entirely there but I figure I need to draw my way through it! Not sure exactly what's going to happen yet - I keep changing my mind each time I see other people's pages!
As for the other matter - I can never tell whether you're being serious or not, but I'm prepared to listen to suggestions! LOL!
I've had moments like that. Sometimes I force myself through as well, leading to either unexpected great pages, or so-so pages. Why do you feel that seeing other peoples pages has made you change your mind in your direction with your entry?
Ha - I was just kidding about the gold bikini reference. Found it funny after reading the comments from you and thedude.
The changing plan thing? Well I hadn't planned on Vigil facing many Cy-droids but having seen some of the other pages where other characters are trashing dozens of them, I'm wondering whether having Vigil get taken down by one or two would be selling her a bit short, if you get my meaning - you know - would she seem too weak by comparison? So I'm rethinking as we go!
Gotcha. The Cy-Droids are formidable opponents, and even one Cy-Droid can be extremely effective. I left it up to the artist to decide how to go about getting captured, and many people are taking different approaches to it. I'm sure that whatever you come up with will work - just make sure that you are happy with what you made (and follow the guidelines). This is all for fun after all, but I get what you mean. Perhaps in your head you could think that some Cy-Droids are built to be tougher than others depending who they are going up against.
Well she's ordering it around - whether she genuinely expects an answer is another matter - but she's also giving it a chance before she crushes it completely just in case it's sentient. Also, if the robot is being remotely operated she's speaking to the operator. She doesn't know the cy-droids, so I guess she's covering all the options!
I'm calling it right now before it happens! Vigil will be to Psi-Void what Princess Leia was to Jabba the Hutt!
My wager aside, a fantastic page. If there is one thing that always impresses with your work, it is your attention to detail and the fantastic scenes you set up with each and ever panel. There is a real sense of desperation in the scene, given all the destruction. Despite Vigil fairing well in the battle, it is clear by her surroundings that the battle as a whole is not to the heroes favour.
I'm very curious to see how it all comes undone for Vigil, given that the Cy-Droid seems to be no match for the powerful telepath.
LOL If you put THAT idea in his head, I'm pretty sure he'll think of something! I would imagine Vigil's psychic powers will put her in his character's sights in some way, but we'll have to wait and see I guess!
that's right, so where are the others to kick her butt? it's a really nice page, especially the robot-ripping panel! ...i really wonder if the robot does speak, after she commanded it, since it did break after her command aswell anyway the crowd (aka me) demands more!
The robot ripping is definitely the high point - thanks for the ! And I suspect the breaking had less to do with the command than her telekinesis! And the crowd will have to wait! But hopefully not too long
deadline is the 30th if my memory is correct, so i guess the waiting time will be okay XD anyway, can't wait for this event to become a bit more crossover-y, coz this time our characters are on the same side! ...that means i have to think of new and uncommon ways to annoy vigil this time
lol, well she does have a sense of humour, but I'll admit it's quite well hidden! As for her capture, well you'll have to wait and see if that's down to arrogance or not - I'm not saying (which means I haven't worked it out yet!)
