I love how you varied their appearances to match the mode of communication. Gorgeous!

I appreciate it, I had this idea a while back and was waiting to be able to use it, heh!

So that's basically Jack's "tries too hard to appear cool and thus is actually just cringeworthy" profile picture? :-D

It's sorta how he sees himself.. the fact that it's not a solid shape is supposed to represent that he doesn't really know who he is yet :)

THIS. IS SO GOOD.

This is a new level for you. It's fucking out there visually, your playing with new color groups, it's clever, I love how this realm allows you to play with style in a believable in-universe way

I can basically talk about this page forever

Ee, thank you!

I don't think it's so visually different, necessarily, but playing with the colors was a lot of fun :) I like it when I have to try and use colors outside of 'reality'

Huh. So how does this work? Do their consciousness transport to another dimension where they can talk like they are near each other but they also hear any other thought?

This is basically some sort of... 'brain zone', rather than another dimension, so this is a realm of pure unconsciousness :)

Ah, their speech shows up as white text, but their peripheral thoughts and feelings are black. Nicely done.

So many questions vying for my attention.

You have created a new playground for the imagination.

Interesting that Jaunt projects himself as clothed when he is linked to Jack.

"Clothes make the man" is a maxim that Jaunt seems to have adopted for himself.

Absolutely - they're a part of the identity he has forged for himself in his own mind. I thought it would be interesting to explore how people saw themselves mentally in this telepathic realm.

Multiple levels of communication or just echos of underlying thoughts?

Oh holy crap, he's on the astral plane!!
I'm glad Jaunt clothed his ego-projection, it would have been a little awkward to show up shirtless. Also wow buddy, kinda rude to call your friend "misshapen", even if he is grossly oozing!!
I love the thoughts echoing in the background. This is a great page. Also a rare instance of Jaunt using the word "please"? He's feeling the insecurity!

It's a sort of representation of how they view their own identities. Jaunt's just commenting on the fact that Jack doesn't have a solid form, which says that he doesn't have a very strong sense of his own identity.

And yeah, below the surface, it looks like Jaunt is a little less secure, hm? :)

It seriously hasn't occurred to me until just now that, in psychic communication, some of the participants' unfiltered thoughts would sneak their way in as well as the intended message.

I might use that concept myself. Maybe it'll be the new norm someday - the comedic possibilities alone seem limitless........

I really like it as well! but it is interesting how jack doesn't look like himself exactly compare to jaunt!

Exactly - Jaunt knows exactly who he is, whereas Jack is less sure.

I love the conscious/subconscious mental dialogue bubbles! I can't imagine a better way to show a telepathic converstion.

I love how, in his head, Jaunt is wearing his snazzy duds. You don't need style on the outside, when you've got style on the inside.

"Why yes, I do love this suit so much that I've incorporated it into my inner most self image - what of it? It's a really nice suit."

That said, it's interesting that Jaunt is so stable while Jack is more... organic? I have to surmise this is because Jaunt was "awakened" by a higher power, making his psyche more... crated than Jack's more "natural" incarnation.

Haha, exactly XD

In terms of why Jaunt looks much like himself and Jack is so different, it's because Jack is still pretty young and hasn't really figured out who he is, yet. Meanwhile Jaunt has a pretty strong sense of self. That's what I'm trying to represent anyway :)
