And that's a wrap! :D

As I said back on Wednesday, next week will feature two Q&A pages which are considerably easier for me to do by comparison, that way I can take a break (and by that I mean still make two pages to increase my buffer.)

I hope everyone enjoyed the chapter! :)

EDIT: I still need questions, too! I've only gotten like, two! Please feed my characters questions, they're starving :(

Is that the home dimension again? It is like everyone has one as a source of power :O
Irwin is going to get so many upgrades that he will become a serious threat. Even worse when nobody is probably expecting him :(

It seems that "Chester" here is excited about what it's seeing on Earth so far :)

There is the potential for Irwin to become a serious threat, indeed...

I would like to ask both Jaunt and Jack, what do they like and what do they hate about humans?
And to Hugh and the other Fishmen(is that the correct term?) what do You think about your transformation?
And to MistakenPotatoes good work with this chapter, I'm looking forward to the next and what it brings!

Ooh, I'll get these added - I think Hugh may have answered that question already, actually, I'll double check. If the questions have been answered already I'll give it to a character that hasn't :)

Also, thank you! I think the next chapter is going to be pretty exciting...

It is okay if it isn't Hugh that answers, since it is also interesting what the others think about their change.
Since you took down the previous Q&A pages, and probably will take down the new ones later, have you considered putting them up with the TSOIExtra? I mean the latest post there is now more than two years old, so putting the old Q&As there would give it a bit of life.
Anyway I'm looking forward to seeing the answers and the new chapter.

I've been trying to figure out what to do with that for a while now - what I'm thinking about doing is just adding another link up above where I host all the extra content, but I'll have to work on it. I think I froze because I wanted to create my own site, but then I found out I was not smart enough, so I've been in limbo just kinda making the comic for a while :')

I'll re-upload the old Q&As though! It'd be good to put them back up.

There is a lot to think about in this chapter ending. Well done.

I may have to go back and reread everything from the start to make sure that I have not missed something. Not that I will mind doing that.

Good, good... I think after contemplation, even seeing the cover of the next chapter will be a pretty good indicator of the direction things are going, heh.

Question

Is Chester normally a symbiont/parasite? What is he like when he is not plastered across somebody's chest?

Question

I love your color scheme throughout the comic. It's vibrant, yet dark and moody. So easy on the eyes. I loved how contrasting the colors were on the trolley scenes - the bright blues, greens, purples with stark black. Do you have an inspiration you take from? Have you always been drawn to these colors or are they just a natural part of the story?

Ah, thank you :D

Since the Q&A is more geared towards the characters I'll just answer this here.

Probably the easiest inspiration I can list is Hirohiko Araki, just because when he draws he doesn't think about color, typically. When he applies color, it tends to change based on attitude or mood (which works for him because his comics are not in color, so he can just occasionally color a cover or something along those lines).

I wanted to try and put it in for transitions, or rapid mood shifts, or important panels. I'm glad that it comes together, though :) I'm highly critical of my color choices, as well as many other aspects of my art, heh.

*Excited Girly Squee*

Sooo beautiful & foreboding! I really love the coloring in the last few panels of this page.
I've enjoyed the heart to heart(?) interaction between Hugh and Jaunt too, but that third panel got me really excited.
Is he actually seeing the water and moon with a green tint? Does he now understand how much he's changed since dying? Great, Great end to the chapter.

I'm so glad you like it! :)

As far as the coloration goes, for panels like this and just when I feel it's appropriate I choose certain colors based on mood or emotion. I think this deep dark blue hugh of the night sky and the almost neon green waters give a sort of alien feel, since it is home, it is familiar, but the circumstances are obviously quite different.

Also, "Chester" has never been here, and it's possible that they see the world entirely differently. I just kinda wanted it to be OFF, in general :)

Question for Jack

Why is Jack a tailor? It seems an odd job for an interdimensional horror.

Okay, I have a question for Jaunt: Forgive me if this seems personal or insulting, but I have to ask, are you male, female, or does your species not have sexes or genders as humans understand them?

I try to use color as a mood thing, with varying degrees of success. I was going for feeling alien here, even though he's technically back home :)
