Pen, pencil, markers PREVIOUS
In which Godfrey and Jacques try to get less lost than they are and in which GODFREY TAKES OFF HIS HELMET AND WE FINALLY GET TO SEE HIS ARMING CAP.
Whew. Done with this one finally. Sorry guys, I don’t really have much of an excuse for why this one is late. And we’ve all heard the “I’m-lazy” one, so, erm, yeah.
But the last few days we’ve been doing lots of housework, so that’s why it didn’t get done on, say, Monday or so. Oh well. I GOT A HEADSTART ON THE NEXT ONE, so maybe I’ll kick myself in gear and actually be diligent. Oh, and Starcraft II has entered my life. So I’ve been playing that a lot too. What can I say, my days are just jam-packed with important things to do.
I also kind of just like how Godfrey is struggling to take off his coif and Jacques is just so chill (and tired).
A bit more dialogue in this one.
I know you guys, IT’S GETTING SUPER INTENSE AND ACTION-PACKED WHAT WITH ALL THAT TRYING TO GET UN-LOST.
But don’t you worry, it’ll start picking up fairly quickly.
Oh lament, LAMENT! That last panel. Gosh Godfrey, I worked SO long on that, and I don't even know what to think of it anymore. You did NOT COOPERATE!!
Ya’ll can see those two little horse-shaped figures climbing up that hill in the fourth panel, right? Or did I make that too dark?
Oh, and credit must go where credit is due. I could NOT—for the life of me—get a good pose/looking thing for Godfrey going on, so I had to use a reference. So thank you to *SenshiStock
