This creature turned out to be a giant pain in the neck to deal with. Trying to render dark against night lighting makes it almost impossible to see. My solution was to do a glowing purple outline around it, but even that is aggravating, because its arms and legs should still glow but were not visible against its body. This necessitated an annoying amount of postwork. I wanted to shoot the person who wrote this script. Then I realized that was myself. ;)

Pain in the neck, perhaps, but it looks great.

Meh... I did OK on this page but you will see my ability to do the shadow wight got better over time and it is much better in issue 6.

Doesn't make me hate the thing any less.

Well, it *is* evil, as are many good-looking ones.

It's definitely evil.

I knew when I scripted this that night renders are a pain in the neck... But this particular story unfortunately calls for it.

"This looks like a job for..."

Ya gotta do it at least once! :D

Wait a minute...she changed clothing AND tied her hair up, all in less than a minute? Wow, she really IS a super hero!

Abby did not braid her hair. She just pulled it back into a pony-tail... as you will see in the next couple of pages. It doesn't take long to just pull your hair back and put an elastic tie around it.

Aaah, okay. That makes sense.

I once had a girlfriend a little bit like Abbey. Blonde, quick change artist. Mine didn't wear a cape, never flew, and didn't bend steel (that I knew of), but she was pretty close to being a hardbody and she did wear Lycra. In the gym, in the gym! ;)

Hmmm, I wonder; was I dating a super hero without knowing it?

I guess that depends if she regularly disappeared very time a local blonde superhero showed up to save the day...

1) Abby is REALLY getting to be a quick change artist. I suppose that's something she's been practicing at home. Which brings to mind the obvious gag of her running a stopwatch to determine if she still needs improvement, while tying herself in knots trying to get it all coordinated.

2) Thank you so much for showing the young man stepping forward to try and defend the lady. I think in today's world, a lot of younger folks would be more along the lines of 'bag this, you're on your own lady' ... It's good to see that chivalry isn't dead in your world either!

3) Never threaten to shoot the writer. There are too few of them left that actually tell a story and we'd all really miss this one greatly. On top of that, someone could claim some sort of 'trigger trauma' over it and you could find yourself put on a list somewhere for making that silly statement and then you won't be able to fly, or something like that.

Keep up the good work, I'm enjoying every panel!

I never thought to show her practicing changing clothes but that would have been a fun scene to do.

Her brother could time her with a stopwatch. Make him part of her support structure. If someday these characters are ever allowed to "grow up", and he matures, I would think he could really become a good advisor to his big sister.
