As for the guilt. Yeah, I like to make sure Dan remembers how it really ended. He keeps trying to find the balance with himself or to accept the fact Dean was killed in self defense - or- a last effort final blow. He was unarmed, injured and pretty much done. Scaper wanted to send a message to the rest of Karillon. Hanging and gutting Dean when he was clearly finished is something Dan will have to deal with for the rest of his life. Of course you can't justify it by blaming it on a voice in your head you've created in the first place. If he continues to convince himself that it was him or Dean - he might be able to live with the choice. However these things have a way of seeping into reality. Sooner or later you have stare at yourself in the mirror - and we all know what that means.
Ahhh Scaper tees you ask. Well I didn't get any more made up as there wasn't an initial interest when I put the call out before Supanova. However, I've been in talks with a printer who's given me a per shirt cost and no limit on run. Basically this means, I can do a run either large or small. So if it's something you're interested in. i can chase up the cost and see if we can run up a couple for the Mighty Wessick. I shall add to my to do list :D
No worries on the commenting. Great to see you back. We're always here - so either you come every couple weeks or catch up down the road... we'll be here.
Technical question: That's cool you like the Dean speech bubble. It definitely pops among the moody tones of the page. It's pretty simple really. It's just a blue shape I made in photoshop. Then using the speckle brush ( I think the last one in brushes supplied by Photoshop. I burned the edges with the burn tool * the tool below the smudge tool on the tool bar* I just went back and forth until I achieved a degraded rough look I liked. Then put a dark drop shadow on the text to make it pop.
That's about it really. Try it - it gives you a pretty cool effect. I do the same thing with Scaper thought boxes. Whenever Scaper is talking to Dan it's the red box with a heavily burned texture. Give it a shot, and good times will be had by all.
