Because I don't want to hijack someone else's thread in TF Funnies, and because I'm not quite ready to start my own thread, I thought I'd post this here. Before I started my photocomic, I wanted to make sure I was able to do the effects, and get them looking good enough. So, the three major effects I believe I need are: Appearance of flight or falling, explosion effects, and glow (and laser blast) effects. So I did one image that combined all three... How does it look? This is my very first attempt at this sort of thing. In the future I'll add more color to my explosions, and some motion blur to whoever I decide to send flying, but I think otherwise this turned out fairly well. Enough to get the point across anyway.
