Comic #963

1 Spanners: Well, the aliens have completely eaten Paris' brain. There's no point delaying any further. I'm venting Serron's cabin to space.
2 Serron: Wait! What if that's really me in there, and I'm the xenomorph?!
3 {silent beat}
4 Iki Piki: Vent away, Spanners. Only the real Serron could say something that stupid.
4 Serron: What if I'm tricking?!!

The particularly keen-eyed regular readers will notice I've finally grabbed some new starfield images to use as backgrounds for these shots. I use images from NASA because they are public domain.

2014-11-26 Rerun commentary: Painting the eyes on a miniature figure as small as Serron is no mean feat, let me tell you. Despite considerable experience with painting miniature figures, it's still one of the trickiest things to do, and often I'd have to redo the eyes several times on a figure before it looked even vaguely natural - with the individual eyes looking in even roughly the same direction.

Serron's eyes are slightly wonky, but that's good enough for me to stop there rather than keep going and probably make it look worse.
