Paradise Lost by Bummerdude Paradise Lost by Bummerdude
This has been a monster of a strip. I relied much more on backgrounds
this turn around to set the mood and to tell the story, for most other
strips they're just there to fill the void behind the characters. I figured
I could put my skills to the test, but it quickly became something I'd
never be fully satisfied with, so I'm just thankful I can post it now and
move on with other ideas.

All panels except the last take part within Volbeat's dream realm, with
Illumise taken away in the third panel along with the rest of his world.
While I've never questioned how dreams can be eaten, I haven't paid
much thought as to how the victim experiences it. Until now, that is. I
first thought about having the world crumble apart by itself, but
there's a certain charm to a giant purple vortex in the sky. If nothing
else, enjoy the visuals.

Hope you all had a nice summer break/vacation/well timed
unemployment!

The contrast of the serious imagery in the first three panels contrasts so nicely with the goofy looking Spoink in the last panel. This got me to smile.

This is the best strip yet, mostly because of the sweet ass imagery but also because there aren't any annoying words in the way of the action. :)
