    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.

    I've gotta be honest, when I first saw it, I thought it was the before picture.

    The white background pretty much makes the blast effects look invisible.

    Woot! Polenicus soon joins the Funnies fray! :) 

    Now, I'm no expert with GIMP/Photoshopped carnage (someone get Pun-3X and bryan_too in here!), but you're right in that it's good enough to get the point across, and that the explosion could do with more colour and some motion blur to said flying/falling character.

    By the way, I hope the rest of your collection didn't get too banged up by UPS?

    For a first attempt I think it looks great.:thumb  A darker background and it would be perfect.

    Is the nearmost laser rifle supposed to be in front of or behind the explosion?
