... oh :D

I hope everyone's week is going well!

Sorry, no update on the figure, yet... it's actually proving very difficult to even find anyone who will do it. I might have to rethink my strategy, I'll be sure to keep you all posted.

This chapter is coming to an end soon, within a few weeks, and I may end up taking a week break when that happens - I feel like I've been running full bore for a while, now, especially with the holiday season, heh.

Toodles :)

Suddenly reminded of Bioshock.... Mainly that opening welcome to rapture phrase "First time plasmid is a real kick from a mule."

Hah! I can see that :D

I didn't get too much farther than that in the game, but I played enough to get the reference at least :)

... How did you manage not to finish Bioshock after picking it up?

I hated the gameplay, mostly. The environment was nice and the writing was pretty good but I just didn't like any of the gameplay elements so it wasn't for me :(

I tried again with Bioshock 2 and had the same issues, unfortunately.

It's not that it was BAD, it just wasn't for me. I didn't really like the gamefeel - something about the way the gunplay worked, and the enemy movement and interaction, it just didn't grab me.

Which made me sad because I really WANTED to like the game since it was really gorgeous :)

Hugh used Harden!

So a tank then. I doubt its only effect is hardened skin but I guess that could be enough as a huge shield against whatever basic weapons like guns.

That's it, Hugh is a Metapod!

We'll have to see to which degree the skin is hardened, or how something like this is even triggered :D

This is one of the iffier things to me, I'm not so sure how people are gonna feel about it.

Something tells me that the trust that is there will erode around the edges after this scene...

Cue the appropriately H. R. Giger ish looking montage as Hugh grows an exoskeleton.

Have you ever seen the pistol scenes in the movie "Videodrome"?

You're the second person to bring that movie up! It sounds like I need to watch it, the gun is supposed to be right up my alley apparently?

The movie has some very surreal moments. It does have a Lovecraftian element in the sense of the main character being transformed by forces outside of his control. I wouldn't be surprised if it had been done before but this was the first time that I had seen a weapon being organically fused to the wielder.

That's the vibe I got from it - it sounds pretty rad, I need to see if I can track it down, and find some time to sit down and watch it, heh! :)

ugh levels up! Hmm is it always on then?

I like the expressions in this page. Even panels with simple activities have a good expression. I also like the details put in Hugh's hand in the 3rd panel. Very nice!
I kinda feel like the last panel is missing sound words, but maybe they'll be something in the next page.

Sort of! We'll get to learn more about it in the future.

Thank you, though - I've been trying to figure out how to get more expression out of everyone's faces - it seems I've plateaued in terms of rendering, so I'm working on what I can.

In terms of the last panel, heh, I did want to put an onomatopoeia in but it disrupted the image too much. Don't worry, though, Hugh voices his concern plenty coming up...

Have you talked to Morland Studios? They did the figurines for Order of the Stick:

I was unaware of them until now! That might be worth looking into, but I am nowhere NEAR OOTS popularity, haha!

Hugh has become the fishy-version of Luke Cage! I wonder of that will prevent stuff like broken bones, concussions, damaged organs, and the like; or will it simply prevent anything from penetrating his skin?

I didn't like the gameplay of Bioshock either...

That's a good question, hm? We'll have to find out :D

Yeah, as I pointed out above, it's not that the gameplay was bad, it just wasn't for me. What's weird is I really like System Shock 2, and yes I have played it fairly recently, heh.

Now that Hugh has "impossibly tough" skin, I wonder if he will need to apply industrial-strength skin lotion as part of his bedtime ritual each night? <g>
