#008 "It's Behind You"
This one was tough to do, not for technical reasons, but just because there are so many ways this could have played out.
In the original idea, the G-Man floated past the window, holding a sign that said "Told you it was freaky"...and an un-fazed Breen ran to the window, asked a nearby guard for his weapon...and shot out the balloons.
In the end, I decided that because Breen ended with the upper hand in the first G-Man comic I did (Issue 2, if you wanna check it out)...this time the G-Man got to finish on top instead.
Kinda a shame because both are pretty funny, but publishing one negates publishing the other.
Only real 'production' notes this time is I really wanted Breen to scream when the G-Man pops out on him...but nothing looked right.
I also need to find a better way to convey the idea of motion...although my 'masked motion blur' technique worked pretty well in this one.
