I've been thinking of posting the comic a few hours later for a while but today we got a crash course when Box went camping and I went to visit relatives. Color version will be here soon.

It's nice to do gags that don't rely solely on game logic and feature characters that haven't been around a lot.

Anyway, AdventurOS is so close to it's $20,000 stretch goal so go and give them some support. $5 nets you the game so you don't need to give much.

I swear I'm not doing this on purpose.
Colored version will be up later I promise.

Love the expressive hat and body language in this one. Great work, 404! XD

I'm going to admit it...Black Mage is probably my favorite of the main staff.
And yes, I did have a lot of fun with his hat.
If you notice the lineart is different from before, I've been trying out Paint Tool Sai. What do you think? Should I keep using it?
TheMightyBox edit delete
Colored version's up.
I'm soooooooooryyy.

That last panel was far too fun for me to do.
Uh, I actually did make a small change to the lineart in one of the panels but you can't really see it due to scaling issues.

But hey, if you can find it, you should say so in the comments.

Box, how are they supposed to be able to tell if they don't have the old version for reference? e_e
FourOfFour edit delete
Did something about the desk? Because it looks like a very small earthquake is hitting in panels four and five.
Also...Should you be able to see BM's cape and robes in the space between his legs? Or is there some kind of split I've been supposed to be drawing?
TheMightyBox edit delete
No, the desk stuff is the scaling issues.
As for his cape, well, I always assumed you wouldn't because of how it's split.

THAT, dear Giga, is my diabolical plan.

What made me laugh was the fact BM didn't know the number. Makes me wonder if WM knew the number at all if she did this was her fault for failing to tell him.

Hmm, your new paint tool left some lines looking jagged and pixelated, I think I prefer the way you were doing it before (unless it's just a setting you can tweak). Aside from the rough lines though, it's lookin' good!

Hehe, in a world filled with these people, what could they possibly expect that message would lead to?
DryKirby64 edit delete reply
Methinks the jagged lines are due to drawing the comic at twice the size and shrinking it down... While it looks fine on thicker lines like in Giga's style and other lines here, thinner lines end up being pixelated... Check out Panel 5 for a good comparison. I might be wrong, though...
FourOfFour edit delete reply
I think that might be it too. The lines looked fine when I drew them...
GigaNerd17 edit delete reply
If that's the case, then shrink the file before you start drawing from now on. Let's see how it goes!

Also, without color I had to remind myself that it's WM here, not Rosalina. :p

Wait! I've got it!
The fire flower is looking up in panel five!

BM's hat is /so/ expressive, isn't it?
