Chapter 2, Page 18

Told you he changes shape. I'm still trying to figure out how to render things reliably, which I am terrible at, mostly because I learn by rote. At least I get the orientation of the triangle pin on his lapel reasonably accurately.

And now the arrival of Mr. Suit. I admit. I really like drawing this guy, even if his design changes dramatically from scene to scene. But then, I'm working with an Unreliable Narrator specifically because I'm using this comic to teach myself both skill and the medium, so it's ok, right?




Mr. Officer has got to have the world's weirdest neck in this shot.

Well, it's a green triangle. You'll be seeing it a lot.

Also, Primus Cell.

Chapter 4 will get in to why Miskatonic University is no longer officially titled "Miskatonic."

In today's comic, I was testing out a crinkle effect on the paper for later use when terrible things are doing terrible things. I'm happy with the effect, but not the colors I used. Expect to see it a few more times until I finally get it right or abandon it altogether. It's on a separate layer, since I didn't feel a need to go about balling up my original scribble. I got a little eraser tool happy, also, but I'm not happy with that effect. Mr. Officer's arm looks like it's going to pop an elbow out of socket.

Below are the two police officers, whom I can only presume are members of the speed trap off the uncanny valley highway exit.
