This is partly to make it easier to get all the details right, and partly because I want to be able to share them in all their full-sized glory.
In the case of flashback panels, where characters remember moments from scenes I intend to flesh out later, it's also handy to have full-sized versions of the images, so I can reuse them when the time comes to show what was happening in those briefly-remembered scenarios.
The two pictures below fall into the latter category. In the comic, they're smaller, sometimes partly hidden by dialogue, and also darker to show that they're memories, so I wanted to share them with their full size and coloring.
Spear of Suffering
I originally drew that montage bigger than it was in the panel to make it easier to get all the details right while drawing, and I also made it darker in the comic panel to help show that it was a memory.
That being the case, I wanted to share the original version in all its full-sized, fully colored, traumatic glory.
Poor Frisk. Being a human in the Underground, and being the protagonist in a world where video game mechanics apply, both suck intensely when you aren't a very good fighter. This panel certainly casts the scrapbooking phone call in an unpleasant light.
Here's the transcript from the phone call, in case you don't remember it:
Undyne: Oh my GOD!!! Wasn't this room the BEST!? Like when I decided to NOT do that BORING monologue... And then went TOTALLY off-the-cuff!? Or when I almost killed you with spears??? Or when I almost killed you with MORE spears??? Aw man. I should have taken photos. Think about how cute a little scrapbook would be..
Papyrus: NOW I WANT A SCRAPBOOK OF MY FIGHT TOO!!!
Undyne: Let's start a photo company for boss fights!
Papyrus: ONE WEEK LATER, SAMPLE GLOSSIES IN THE MAIL.
Undyne: Relive the memories...
Frisk is reliving them, all right.
(a.k.a. Ode to My Lack of Self-Control)
A WEBCOMIC. Where common sense dictates that one should keep things simple enough that one can put out pages at a reasonably fast pace.
But then one part turned out semirealistic enough that to keep the appearance coherent I wanted to make the rest look just as good, and look what the heck happened.
You can't even see this whole background in the actual comic panel because the dialogue covers some parts up. >_<
Oh, well. I got a pretty picture out of it.
If you can't read the words on the corkboard, they're all quotes from Mettaton, saying:
"The food is to die for!"
"Gorgeous style and fragrance!"
"My face tastes beautiful!"
"It's just like being on the surface."
"Fit for the star of the Underground"
"Smells like the moon."
"Farmed locally. Very locally."
Some of these are direct quotes from the chalkboard in the game, and some of the others are references to dialogue in other parts of Undertale.
