something SNAPPED, I heard it, I did! Was it his countdown mechanism...? I am not worried, I know Opey will get through this, its these kinds of things that make us stronger you see, just like when my uncle touched me in the bath..... ooops, i have said too much havent I. hahahahaa

Awesome Artwork as usual, great perspectives and shading.....

Thanks (for the fave and kind words).

Hopefully, I'll be able to show what happened to that poor bomb, but I am so behind on everything. Arggghhh!

Oh, that's horrible! Not the page but what happens to Opey. Although I'm sure you knew that already, I just felt like mentioning it.

Very grotesque because of the "smile" on Opey's face. Reminds me of dolphins that get stuck in nets in the ocean. They look cheerful all the time, even while drowning.

Yeah, I wanted to enhance the horror of Opey's fate by depicting him with a frozen smile even as the poor lad bounces off the ground and breaks his arm.

This page was certainly one of the more dramatic ones.

It's a beautiful comic, and I feel sad for Opey. (Despite what he is, a walking talking warhead...)

However, I think in the second panel- it looks confusing. It looks as if the boy could be slapping or pushing Opey away. Except for the partial curl of fingers. I think it would be better if it looked as if the boy were punching Opey, which would be more convincing if his fingers were tightly curled into a fist- in order to follow through with the punch.

Excellently done throughout, solid style and as always- fantastic shading with hatching. <3

Thanks for the compliments, itareio (and thanks for viewing the page). I'd also like to apologize for taking so long to respond to your comment. I unexpectedly got delayed this past week and weekend. Sigh.

You're right, I messed up on the second panel. Stan's fingers should have been tightly curled into a fist , since he was punching Opey, rather than the position I depicted it in this panel.

No problemo. dA takes up so much time... and it seems to be time I don't have a lot of lately. I'll probably have more time actually during the school year. (Sounds weird doesn't it?) Work takes up a lot of my time lately.

I wouldn't want to mess with a nuclear bomb (living or otherwise).

By the way, thanks for adding "The Sitter 3" to your favorites!

Yep, even as his arm snapped! I was definately trying to go for some irony there.

Maybe now these jerks will get a clue and start showing poor Opey a little respect, but I doubt it?

Pure genius - every panel!!!

Thanks, Mark, for the comment and fave!

Those nasty punks have done some terrible things to Opey. This page was certainly meant to be one of the more dramatic pages of the issue.

I'll be starting soon on the next page soon (I hope).

Thank you for the compliments (and reading the comic, too). The kid, Stan, is supposed to be punching Opey, not pushing him away. Looks like I messed up there. :)

Yeah, this has been the only Opey page with action in it.

I purposely made Opey seem a little forward, as his social skills are rather lacking.

Thanks for the comment, and the fave!

Thank you very much. This is my personal favorite series to work on. There are actually only two pages left to the first issue, and then it's over.

A hypospray may be handy as well, to remove the pain with a handy painkiller of some nature.

Lol.

Who knows what happens next.

Okay, I know. Um...shoot...

Rats, I sort of messed up that whole dramatic bit, didn't I?

Thanks for reading Opey, Celine, and adding this page to your favorites. Nuts, I wasn't entirely satisfied how this page turned out (it's a bit crammed and messy), but I think it still managed to communicate what I wanted it to communicate.
