I get the feeling that Anstice is pretty kinky.

I would not have expected miss wings to be that kind of girl. I guess this proves that I'm a horrible judge of character.

LOL I love the look on Cassie's face as she's attaching the suppressor. Her expressions in the first three panels more or less reflected my own reaction perfectly: "Ugh... God Anstice, TMI! SERIOUSLY!!!"

Then I read the Statler and Waldorf bit and I nearly fell out my chair laughing. XD

If I were Cassie though, I'd give Anstice the pistol and handle the shotgun myself... A pistol would probably be easier for a novice to handle. Anyway, if she's really that dense, she's just gonna flip out over a cockroach or something and blow a hole in the wall, thus announcing our presence to the entire base, and probably knocking herself out with the recoil while she's at it.

BTW, I should mention that I really love how you have her ears accentuate her facial expressions here. <3

It could be worse. You should reqad the alt text on the comic at [link] . It goes a bit further than what I posted here.

I learned to fire a 12 ga. shotgun before any other weapon. It's an excellent starting weapon, and lacks the finesse and experience necessary to accurately fire a pistol. Rather than having to aim, you point the shotgun in the general area of the enemy and fire.

Heh, they've been being used to accentuate her moods since the beginning of the comic. It's just very prevalent here, and a situation that others can identify with. :P

HowlsInTheDistance Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
An excellent starting weapon, you say? I see... Well, hopefully she doesn't panic and start blasting away at everything that moves...

OK so wait, did Jeff actually TAKE PART in the........ You know what? Never mind. Don't know, don't wanna know. Now where did I leave that brain bleach..?

lol Seriously though, I gotta ask... The single, most defining trait of Anstice's personality seems to be the fact that she's... well, a whore. (Normally, I hate using such epithets of any lady, but there's just no way around this one lol.) And it's true to such an extent, that she almost seems like more of a caricature, than an actual character. So my question is this: do you plan to develop her personality as the story progresses, or is she more of a "comic relief" type of character? And I know you said that there's no guarantee that everyone will make it through this OK, so to avoid spoilers, let's just pretend that she's gonna live forever, for the purposes of this question. :D

And yes, I noticed that the ear thing has been true all along. I just wanted to point out that it was a nice touch, especially here. :)

Anstice has only been in for eight pages, speaking on only four of them, you can't expect me to do much aside show a base character with that. Yes, her being a slut is a defining part of her character, but the psychology behind it is much deeper.

For character development, in the words of Dr. Wily, "Just wait and see." I'm not gonna give out spoilers no more. :D

lol my bad, I didn't mean that I was disappointed with a lack of development or anything like that... I was really just curious to know if you had anything major planned for her. Point taken, though. I guess that really is asking for spoilers... ^_^"

...And what game did he say that in? I haven't really played any Megaman games since X3.

Panel One got a smile from me. Then I saw Panel Four and laughed. Hard.

But yeah, stick with the solid black shading. While it looked okay-ish before and fairly bad now (not liking either opacity, regardless) on web, it will look horrible in print. Believe me on this. With monochrome prints, either go none, half or all, but never the 80-85% ish opacity you have going on here. There's a reason monochrome comics use dot matrix instead of halftones. This is one of them (the other being production cost/ink management).

Golden rule of print: If you're going to do something, make it drastic, not subtle. Subtle looks like a mistake. For instance:
    Subtle spacing = mistaken for bad/closed-in spacing and there can be issue with dot gain/ink bleeding
    Subtle color difference = mistaken for inconsistency in the color scheme
    Subtle contrast = mistaken for bad prints/bad printer/low ink (especially in blacks)

Hope this information helps. Sorry I haven't been around for more critique.

Now it's canon.
This is also likely to become a running gag - Anstice going on about some sort of sexual encounter she's had in the past, each one more and more extreme than the last... Sorta like a certain character on L4D2 talking about his friend...

I think the grey is too close to the black, watcher could consider it a mistake. You should use black for hard shadows (like before) and some lighter grey for softer shadows.
I like the pic with the bottom viewpoint.

It's an opacity setting, so it can be snapped back to black with the flick of a wrist.
