There's one thing Keymen takes VERY seriously. Don't you dare do it!

Takeo and Abbaline, Kal's stand-ins discussing the tasks for the day as well. Someone has something to say to them!

------------
***EDIT***
And it's finished--I appreciate you guys treating that WIP as a normal page-- you're too good for me I don't deserve you! <3

Thanks for your patience with me guys...and thank you for reading!

Yeay Friday Update!

But... We also want a LIVE cheerful bouncy Serpy too, I'm the only one who's really allowed to be a walking zombie in these here parts!!!! ***scowls at the other zombies***

these two characters taking over for Kal, hmmm... I wonder if Grampy's blunderbuss has enough extra ammo for these two as well... I already really don't like them, a lot...

edit: Also, Zen's loyalty is always gonna go to the highest bidder, so I can't really blame Keyman for leaning on him some right out of the gate.

Hahahaa may not have been finished but at least it was on Friday!

Hey can't I be a zombie SOMEtimes? We can be buddy-zombies! Have a few brains, run in to a few walls---it'll be great! XD (I've already got the running into walls thing down X"D)

Hahaha no love for the stand-ins huh? That's...probably for the best XDD

And yes exactly! THat's EXACTLY why Keymen did this all intense haha. He got a major impression from Zen that he could easily turn the info around in order to gain more profit. he wants to squash that x)

LOL Zen's drooling in the upper right panel inset!

Seriously, as a WIP, this compares favorably to a lot of people's finished work, so there's that.

Hahaha Money gets those two reactions outta Zen--- his eyes to actually open and apparently drool all over the place! XD

Aw man thank you so much for saying that-- I felt terrible about having to post the WIP x"D. That means a lot to hear! <3

Hmmm not sure how I feel about Keymen's hot/cold behavior to neutral characters...although I guess I can't blame him in this universe.

Looking forward to learning more about these two new characters!

Hahaha I understand what you mean! Buuut one must also remember... Keymen told Merek that he sees Zen as a liability prooobably because its been insinuated that if Merek don't pay a good enough price, Zen might go elsewhere with his info if you know what I mean X"DD

Keymen just want Zen to know he don't take no shat like Merek does LOL

In reality there are only two rules:
1) Don't mess with old blue eyes.
2) If you feel like messing with old blue eyes, see rule #1.

Your linework is so pretty.*-* I love your wip's!

I also like Kals stand-ins better than Kal..they're like diet-kals. All the robust snarkiness of the original but only half as sour!:D

I love getting the chance to see your pages in process (your line art is so detailed and the lines are so thin...makes me want to try colouring it XD)!

Yes...probably not a good idea to get on Keymen's bad side.

And! Whheee! It's these guys and their cynical banter :D That pile of paperwork stands no chance :] (actually, reminds me a lot of that comic from ages ago).

Sss-ssounds like someone has been spending a lot of time in serpent form.

Hahaha oh man you are welcome to color ANY line art I ever post because your color work is just....top knotch! Haha if you had colored this page it'd look way better!

I LOVE THAT COMIC! Hahaha actually that comic really inspired the dynamics I want to have for these three...so thank you for that input! You awesome!

I'm so glad that I maybe shouldn't worry so much!

I really do love seeing the stages of art. The difference between the lineart and the finished product is incredible, it really is. It's really come to life!

I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that that fancy tapestry up on the wall is of a male serpent.

Anyways! As expected, this page wraps up the Keymen-and-Zen scene. The two probably really will work astoundingly well together; Zen seems like the kind of guy who's pretty well reined in and kept manageable with promises of money, and Keymen's got a very good balance of affability, uncanny insight, and sharp usually-hidden edges to keep him in line. A weird working relationship, sure. But it WORKS.

Times like that threat he gives to Zen reminds me that Keymen used to be 'friends' with Kalverick. And that he's related to our Big Bad. Showin' your teeth there, Keymen. Best be careful not to bite people who don't deserve it.

I'm not so sure Zen returns your sentiment, but he'll certainly appreciate your cash!

As much as I enjoy your lovely fog, I will admit it's nice to get away from it. Abbaline and Takeo might be inside that big icky Council building, but at least it looks warm! At least both of them understand that their boss is an ass and of COURSE he'd give them control just when things are falling to pieces. Interesting little beginning to the scene down there; it's given us a very good idea of their dynamic and personalities. I'm afraid they probably work quite well together.

Shame, it would have been nice to give our heroes a bit of a break. Oh well. More interesting this way. XD

Speaking of interesting... are those claw marks I see on that bottom panel? Oooooooh....

I don't know why, but I really love that bottom panel with Abbaline alone. Probably because I appreciate his design; he's all spotty. :D Your expressions are as lovely as ever - everyone's got great looks going on here today.

I also find it interesting that Takeo and Abbaline both have sharp cheekbones. I think Kal does too. Maybe it's a younger bad guy trait? (And I think Abbaline and Takeo are both created OCs too, by different people, which just makes the alignments and features that much more amusing to me. XD)

And I just really like the top line of panels, particularly Zen's face/hand combo as he's thinking over the offer. And well done on your hands, by the way! They look great! I particularly love the handshake panel; it looks marvelous.

I thank you so much for saying that about the line art-- you know how I hate posting WIPs if I can help it! Yea SoO is one that definitely needs color me thinks X"DD

Hahaha yes.. don't bite the people who don't deserve it but show your teeth to the people who MIGHT haha. Let's not forget the first thing Key said about Zen to Merek is that he seems like a liability.....sooooooo someone who is SO soley motivated by cash and not really much else....Keymen just wants to make sure he knows the stakes. See? Key's such a nice guy! Awwwww....nice guy award goes to Keymen LOL.

Yess Takeo and Abby are "diet Kals" as put so eloquently by ConfettiRainbowPony LOL....... but where they lack in the horrendous raging they make up for in a calm sharpness that get the job done-- I'm sure these guys know that if things get worse Kal would love to pin the blame on someone other than himself XDD. LOL but indeed...the three of them are the sharp cheekbone club! It's perfect and I love it XDD. THey all got combed hair too-- ain't one of those guys is scruffy! Contrast with Merek's brigade where ALL of them are rascally except for like.. Barron LOL.
