The Swamp Witch Page 7 by SiverCat The Swamp Witch Page 7 by SiverCat
And thus is the swamp witch introduced to our heroes.

This was originally going to go with Page 6, however I was already having a difficult time laying out and I realised this would need a large panel at the end of the page, which I couldn't get to work or take a page unto itself. I prefer the page by itself for impact, particularly as this is their first encounter with the witch.

Edit: Moved some of the dialogue to page 6 for better flow at :icontanashai:'s suggestion for improvement.

Ah yeah! The big page! As a rule, when introducing a major character, whether evil or good, it's considered good form to give that characer a big page intro. Even it's a half page it should be full length in size. It increases the impact of the new character.

Something else I really like beside the drama, is the Swamp Witch herself and the way she is looking at Mathias. Despite the cuteness of the characters, you just feel her evilness as she slimes Mathias in her icky caress!

Nice call on the layout and planning of these two pages. Yuck! I smell the stench of the foggy bog!

YES. One of things besides telling a story of course that I'm trying to do with these comics, both this one and, er...was doing with Tales of Fantasy, is testing what can be done with these lil' guys in terms of drama and just in general: creepiness, fear, heh, surely exasperation with Rhett involved, etc. Evil, sliminess in the world of cute! I am pleased. :evillaugh:

I wanted to try some techniques but wasn't happy with any of them so I finally put up the page as is so I buried myself for a day or two.

New stuff? How come you wait till I don't check in before post your new stuff!

Heh! Exactly! We might have to make it as famous as Frak.

(Not to be confused with Frick and Frack, my mom's name for me and my boyhood pal growing up)
