Ah, the third page. I checked for errors, and as far as I could tell, there weren't any, so if you see any please tell me.

This is the first page where I've acctually placed shadows, the reason for this was because the background looked a little plain so I added some shadows, then the background looked more detailed than the foreground and thus I ended up with shadows everywhere.

This page introduces an alien, I'm sorry to say he won't be playing any major roles. I was starting to get a little tired of only seeing Raz and I wanted everyone to know that the planet he's on is full of all sorts of different aliens and that it's most likely not Raz's home planet.

Also, to those of you who are Red Dwarf fans. See if you can find the Red Dwarf reference, I'll you give a hint, it's a word and sounds like a poor excuse for a siren.

I thought "Awooga" was just a siren noise. I didn't know all these years it was a reference to something. I first heard that "sound" on Muppet Babies... wait, is Red Dwarf newer than that? O.o

"Why?" can be such a power question, can it not?

My favorite thing about this other than that is the background effects. The alarm lighting is just right, and (for some reason I also like the little bit of shading on that alien) I like the blur effect of the background. The characters have such bold and solid lines around them, so with that blur they REALLY pop out from the background. I don't know if you ever looked at any of my comics, but actually use a different medium to color the background to try to achieve an effect like this traditionally. I like it that much. The thing I don't like though is the overlapping shadows in the background. That should be happening with the foreground characters, I guess, but the backgrounds, from the way they are, I think the overlapping areas should have their color adjusted so the overlapping area is the same color as the rest of it. Perhaps the fix is as easy as Eyedropper-BuckeTool. 'Cause, like, the way the room is, it looks like it might have multiple lights on the ceiling, but on the edges of the room that effect of overlapping shadows shouldn't be there.

Well, it was your first use of shadows, so you'll fix everything. And I'm glad you check for errors.

Hmm, the Awooga sound was first use on season 3 of Red Dwarf I think. That was in the early nineties I think. I quick google shows that Muppet Babies was started in 1984, so that means "Awooga" has been going on for a lot longer than Red Dwarf. You learn something new everyday.

Hmm, thanks for the advice for shadows. If I remember it, I'll try and utilise it. The shadows in the background shouldn't be dark if they overlap, hmm, thanks.

I thought Awooga was just another, lesser-used generic alarm sound... :shrug:

And about shadows, in general shadows don't overlap and get darker unless there are multiple light sources spread around different points in the room. A shadow may be darker in the middle and lighter on the edges, but in general, a rule should be to keep your shadows evenly dark until you have mastered them.

Awooga probably is a generic alarm sound.

Also, thanks again for the advice about shadows. I'll try and utilise it on the next page.
