LoT: Mother Mercy, part IV by terriblenerd LoT: Mother Mercy, part IV by terriblenerd
UPLOAD SEQUENCE COMPLETE. ENGAGING SHAME MODULE FOR RUSH ART INFLUX.

Long story short, this round was 25 pages and in the midst of terrible timing. Most of it I was able to shade at school via cintiq, but I had to shade the entirety of this last bit over two days with a tablet and a bad computer, due to a miserable comedy of errors with travel arrangements.

BUT ANYWAY. For those of you curious, there's ADDITIONAL READING.

Where the name Reshef comes from: [link]

Why I chose it: [link] That wacky Milton fellow took a lot of demonic names from ancient Mesopotamian deities. That, and, well. What would inspire a city to focus on steamworks more than the attack of a demon personified in electricity? ;)

Previous: [link]
Next: To come!

In closing, as ever:

Law of Talos (c) =Sins-Of-Angels
Lucia (c) =Izuma
Murphy (c) ~CyrilTheWizard
Lilith (c) `Endling
Mizuno (c) ~Cirihtt
Jinam (c) =Rocker-Artist
Eric (c) =cailencrow
Annie, Professor (c) me

Special thanks to =Waddle-Penguin for translating the Spanish for me! :heart:

Frollo there is just figuring to go with it. Good choice.

And that last panel, that's the most memorable line in like. The entire series. Along with a few choice others, usually from Annie. :heart:

Wow your entry was simply amazing, i'm not surprised that you made it the finals. In comic 2 where you first show them standing in the chapel, that panel where the priest is begining took my breath away. I just sat there staring at it and taking in all the detail.


I've been following Unknown rooting for the him the whole time, but after seeing this....heh....I really don't know or can even guess as to who's gonna win.


I can guess though, that it'll be epic.

I love the part were Annie says, "Cry me a River" Or something close to that in the Third part of the Comic.

I even loved it when she said Let's Be Friends.
It was sooooo funny and cool how the Professor said its safe until she speaks Spanish.
XD

Overall, I'm hoping you get to the Finals so you can fight Unknown's Karl.
I'm a big fan of both his and your Comic and characters.

Although, I can't wait to see what Karl would say when he finds out that your Character Annie is Preg.
THAT might be a funny scene to see.

That's better.

What I wanted to say is that, in short, I want to be you when I grow up.

By itself, your art is fantastic (get some self-esteem! I'd give my kidney to have artistic skills half as good as yours), but your writing is an inspiration to me.

I, as an unknown writer with big hopes, am filled with hope when I see your stunning prose given the accolades it deserves. I crack a smile every time I see your name under my messages.

Shine on, you crazy diamond. God willing, we'll meet on the battlefield someday.

This was an incredible entry, your dialogue is as always incredible, the lines really resonate and they make this truly epic. And then there's the sublime backgrounds, you made an incredible Steampunk church. Finally, one detail stood out to me, when the priest said "you'll walk it together" it looks like you focused on Lucia for that panel, which seems like an excellent choice since she entered a tournament looking for her boyfreind.

Ummm, that was one hell of a good reason not to kill Eric >>...I shall never be ashamed of calling for my mommy from now on D8!

And awesome exorcist! Now Ave María got sort of cooler xD *fails as a catholic xD*

And lookit! she exorcised a mythic demon and her dress is still in one piece and without a spot! I think she did earn a pinch of pint of Häagen-Dazs <3

....


PS. and that, boys and girls, is how Santa Ana came to be 8D

I remember seeing the tophat at the end of part I, but it has disappeared by the time we see the Professor in part II.

Where did the hat fly off to this time?

Two lines in this one just killed me.

1) "Aaaand there's the Spanish. Good Lord."

2) "You do this. You always do this. You ask these questions. AND THEN YOU GET ANSWERS."

So hilarious, and brilliant artwork. Absolutely love it!

So every time you sit down to a new one of these, you realize you have to top the last one. That must get depressing.

Also, I'm guessing you're a lapsed or current Catholic? How do you know so much about religion and stuff and symbols and stuff?
