Ooh, creepy. I really love the way the texture overlay on Nyarlathotep's cloak turned out on this page (and on the following pages) - sorta feels like cheating since I didn't do it by hand, but Iunno. I still shaded it, I guess, but it doesn't feel clean.

WARNING: unwarranted opinion-making time!

You are working in digital. There is no shame in using all the tools at your disposal in service of a better comic. It looks freakin' awesome, and though you feel "dirty" for doing it, the end result is WELL worth it.

Suppose you're right. I guess I can't avoid feeling guilty though since everything else (save for the text) is hand drawn.

Nyarlathotep is that total douche friend that everyone ends up with.

Really nice work on the cape!!

Nah, it's not cheating. Over the years I have started to use computer more and more and I have noticed that my comics look better because of it.

I could see that.. we're about to get a bit of an exposition dump, though, that'll explain things better ;)

NOOO FLAPJACK

I'm interested in the bony protrusions on the back of Jack's head, actually. You could wedge a ceramic "KICK ME" tile really neatly between them. Take note, Nyarlathotep.

You have one of the strangest, and best brains when it comes to comedy, I swear, heh!

I'm actually worried his head design looks too koboldy. It wasn't an active decision I made, but when I compared the two I was like "Damnit I gave him a crown of thorns didn't I. Ugh."

Strangeness breeds hilarity, I always say! (disclaimer: i never say that)

I had no idea what "koboldy" meant, so I looked it up and-- yeah, he's got a koboldy thing going on! However, he's also got a pterosaurian thing going on and a JAUNTY CAP THING going on, so it's all good.

Thank you, man - I say it time and time again, but stuff like that from people who are as skilled as you are is a huge deal to me. I really appreciate it!

Looks like a fun start

Found this at work... Going to be finishing at home. See y'all at 5.

Oh, TWC directed me after voting for GrrlPower. I'll be passing you a few votes too.

Awesome! I look forward to hearing back from you, I hope you enjoy it!

And that's good to know. I might have to invest in some advertising there, heheh.

It seemed he liked to talk to Randolph Carter on occasion :D I image that Nyarly gets a little talkative with beings it becomes fascinated with.

Somehow, the way you drew Nyarlathotep here is much more delicate and exquisite than his first appearance. He looks incredible. And I agree that the texture overlay is just lovely!
