'The Mission' requires discretion...
'The Mission' may be disappointed!
Sheela 10th Apr 2013, 8:05 PM edit delete reply

Looks like someone is on edge.

Fightscenes incoming!
Centcomm 10th Apr 2013, 8:16 PM edit delete reply

am . I that transparent? LOL
Sheela 10th Apr 2013, 8:20 PM edit delete reply

Nah, it's just that the entire story is set up around a conflict, so obviously, there will eventually be some fighting.

This should come as no surprise to anybody.

YUP -- :D
ranger_brianna_new 10th Apr 2013, 8:12 PM edit delete reply

I'm kinda hoping that the gutters are stupid enough to attack first, so that it's not Dolly's fault that the fight happened, since you just KNOW there's going to BE a fight. :P
Centcomm 10th Apr 2013, 8:17 PM edit delete reply

yeah the music is already in that "build-up" phase
cattservant 10th Apr 2013, 8:23 PM edit delete reply

They can't be too stupid, to be long time survivors in the Waste.
But they could be really horny and try to hit on CeCi...

[Of course they've probably already heard about 'Ms. Badlucks' denouement by now.]
Centcomm 10th Apr 2013, 8:35 PM edit delete reply

there are many ways to survive :D
LooeyQ 10th Apr 2013, 8:27 PM edit delete reply

These are not the androids your looking for....

Move along....

Centcomm 10th Apr 2013, 8:35 PM edit delete reply

that is SO fitting >_<
Sheela 11th Apr 2013, 6:18 AM edit delete reply

You REALLY don't want to find *those* driods !
LooeyQ 11th Apr 2013, 8:43 PM edit delete reply

I just had too! ;D
cattservant 10th Apr 2013, 8:44 PM edit delete reply

A thought impinges:

'Dolly's got a brand new ass,
Now she's going to paint it bad!!!'

An eerie whistling music reminiscent of a classic Clint Eastwood spaghetti western is sifting through the sand, the tension mounting.
Fairportfan 10th Apr 2013, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

Nah. Harmonica music. Check back to my post yesterday for a link.
Oldarmourer 20th Jun 2019, 10:26 AM edit delete reply
and the quiet creak of a rusty windmill....
Centcomm 10th Apr 2013, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

YUP I like that image..
Sheela 11th Apr 2013, 6:22 AM edit delete reply

How about some whistling music as an alternative ?
It gets downright haunting at some points.
Dragonrider 11th Apr 2013, 6:47 PM edit delete reply

Nope ain't no whistling music it's them thar banjos ya hear, deliverance from conflict ain't gonna be fer Dolly an Ceci.
Fairportfan 10th Apr 2013, 9:15 PM edit delete reply

Dolly's idea of "subtle" may run along the lines of only shooting them once each if they make a move...


EDIT: I'm sorry; "WHEN they make a move," this being that kind of story.
Barreytor 10th Apr 2013, 10:40 PM edit delete reply

Once is more than enough with headshots.
Sheela 11th Apr 2013, 6:19 AM edit delete reply

No, no, no, no ... ALWAYS double tap to be sure !
Barreytor 11th Apr 2013, 10:02 AM edit delete reply

But the it isn't self-defense anymore!
Sheela 11th Apr 2013, 10:55 AM edit delete reply

Self-defense ?

I'm not sure Dolly believes in that idea.
Centcomm 11th Apr 2013, 11:10 AM edit delete reply

she does belive in "agressive" defense :D
Fairportfan 12th Apr 2013, 3:40 AM edit delete reply

Dolly believes in hitting-them-back-first defence.
Rashala 10th Apr 2013, 10:08 PM edit delete reply

Eh...when was the LAST time Subtle Ever worked.

*sets up camera's for a Payperveiw of the showdown
KarToon12 11th Apr 2013, 7:09 AM edit delete reply

I really love all the expressions on this page. I'm getting nervous along with them, just in the expressions alone.
Centcomm 11th Apr 2013, 10:47 AM edit delete reply

that means ive done my job correctly :D thank you :D
jas 11th Apr 2013, 12:05 PM edit delete reply

"Best to avoid them. Avoid trouble." That reminds me of the line from Off Hours from Cai: "Remember, just act normal and no one will notice we're not human." Equally effective. XD

And a great page, too! I agree with KarToon, the expressions are really good on this page.
Centcomm 11th Apr 2013, 2:54 PM edit delete reply

thank you :D always love hearing from you :D

Soft options sometimes lead to sticky situations...
Dragonrider 11th Apr 2013, 6:40 PM edit delete reply

We know how this is gonna end, she takes out the ones that got away from her last little tangle with the gutters.

My last post for a while, movers show up at 8 AM and I head to TN won't have komputer access for a week or so.
Centcomm 11th Apr 2013, 9:00 PM edit delete reply

be safe !! and see you in a week!
Fairportfan 12th Apr 2013, 4:06 AM edit delete reply

Minor nitpick: Re the incentive: "neural", not "nural".
cattservant 12th Apr 2013, 12:09 PM edit delete reply

Maybe it's a far future science thing?
Centcomm 12th Apr 2013, 12:47 PM edit delete reply

oops spell check glitchhh
Sheela 12th Apr 2013, 6:18 PM edit delete reply

You need some future spell checkers. :D
Rashala 12th Apr 2013, 10:37 PM edit delete reply

Come on folks you knoe somewhere in the wasteland air....Tedee is raging cause her Gunplay senses are going crazy...and she is not there.....and her co pilot ada probally is looking for the...ejection lever ;)
Sheela 13th Apr 2013, 4:36 AM edit delete reply

Either that, or she's about to land right on top of them and squish them into a red paste. :D
Centcomm 13th Apr 2013, 5:12 AM edit delete reply

that would be funny as hell >_<
Rashala 13th Apr 2013, 2:46 PM edit delete reply

Or worse. Ada lets tedee fly and Tedee decides they need to fly low to avoid NR Radar/whatever....and fly's so low.....
AS Dolly is on one side of a street reaching for her gun these guys over there drawing and WHAM!!!!! Tedee runs them over...and ada jerks out of sleep mode at the noise and asks... "Teddee What was that noise..... "Tedee" Uh Mutant bug hit the view screen....go back to sleep *As she tries to dislodge a corpse on the viewscreen with the windshield wiper and washer*

It really feels like your art is improving. I have a hard time pin-pointing exactly what it is since with digital art so much of what makes it good is the artist's ability to have it not feel awkward or jarring and so I can't easily point to what's better.

I do especially like how natural the lighting feels these last few pages.
Centcomm 14th Apr 2013, 9:28 PM edit delete reply

these were all done with the new comp.. better lighting more processing power.. :D

thank you soo much ive been working at makikng it better all the time..
cattservant 15th Apr 2013, 3:06 AM edit delete reply

And that's why it feels so lonely out here in the cold and dark.
The better it keeps getting, the harder the wait!
Sheela 15th Apr 2013, 4:37 AM edit delete reply

One thing that made a big difference, was rendering shadows on and from hair.
That was a nice upgrade. :)
Centcomm 15th Apr 2013, 3:55 PM edit delete reply

I agree but getting it right is a pain .. lighting is one of the trickest parts..
mushroomisland 28th Apr 2013, 4:32 PM edit delete reply

See, probablem with being main character is, you never avoid trouble. They'll come to you no matter what :P
Centcomm 28th Apr 2013, 4:47 PM edit delete reply

always .. always .. its a curse :D
Stormwind13 29th Sep 2013, 6:55 AM edit delete reply

Dolly lives in interesting times. :-D

From thousands of years back the Chinese (reportedly) cursed her! :-D
