COMICS-ARE-THE-ENEMY

We are not our enemy. We are Alderaan. We answer rage with wisdom. We answer fear with imagination. We answer war with hope. If one life with a single drop of Alderaanian blood survives, Alderaan survives. If one life with a passion for Alderaanian creativity survives, Alderaan survives. And we are, each of us, important. - Princess Leia (2015)

PART 1 IS FINALLY HERE!!!  This comic is from @insanitysbloomings​ ‘ fanfic “Back To Us,” which takes place 7 years after Hawk Moth’s defeat and the heroes go their separate ways.  When a new villain appears after 7 years of relative peace, they find that they don’t have as much in common as they used to… Dun dun DUUUUUUUN~!  

It’s seriously an awesome story!  When @insanitysbloomings​ got randomly chosen for my giveaway I had no idea she had such an amazing fanfic already!  I’m totally hooked on it now and follow her updates religiously! (>▽<)

I originally wasn’t planning on making it as big as it is now.  It’ll be 4 parts total, or 5 depending on whether I decide to split one up into 2 and they’re mostly drawn out, they just need to be colored now. 

Anyway, this scene was literally THE perfect excuse for me to practice the 2 things I’ve been wanting to work on, 1) Drawing expressions, and 2) Coloring nighttime settings. And since it’s from a fanfic I really like, it’s been really fun!  I may not color the rest of the comic quite like this, but we’ll see what happens.

Obviously, I took some liberties with Ladybug’s costume.  The original isn’t as fun to draw and I like redesigning stuff.  ;P

I had to look up reference pictures of the top of the Eiffel Tower to figure out where to stick these guys… there aren’t a lot of places to sit way up there, once you go past a certain height!

So I decided to have them sit on the ledge outside the top viewing area of the tower; I remembered it from the Guitar Villain episode. (I KNOW YOU ALL REALLY, REALLY CARE ABOUT THAT LITTLE DETAIL!!! MWAHAHA XD)

This picture has been saved on my phone since last summer I even posted it on my Instagram but not here for some reason whoops
