Sid. Don't you mean "thank you" X'D. *Shakes head* ungrateful...

**EDIT** (Can't believe I forgot X"D)
The Umbras in the background-- you probably remember Kyle, but the other guy has been fleshed out by LilBlueBox-- you might remember him from the background in this scene! His name is Felix! Welcome Felix to the SoO fam! <3

SORRY guys! I went to the mountains last weekend with my family! Just couldn't do it--tried but I couldn't. You know what tho? I needed that. For the first time in a long time I enjoyed working on the page details and for the first time in a long time... I don't hate the end result x"D. I don't know if that means it looks any better than usual but it might be indicating I'm FINALLY getting my flame back! Such a long art funk! X__X

Thanks for your patience everyone!

Yay! Merek saves the day! (With help. XD)

Haha something tells me from the look on Barron's face that he doesn't not appreciate the head pats. XD

This is why everyone likes Merek... Impeccable timing!!!

And I love the look on serpent-Barron's face when Kyle pats his head... That's comedy!

glad to hear you got your flame back, Serpy! Nice to hear that ONE of us doesn't hate everything they produce lately!

Kyle, pal... do you WANT to get bitten?

re: A/N: I was actually noticing that the page seemed more, hmmmm... vibrant (not sure if that's the word I'm looking for, but close enough) than usual. So glad you're getting your motivation back! :D

Aaaaand Merek bails you guys out again. What would you do without him? XD

I wonder if Sid can be turned to Merek's side...he really doesn't seem evil, just very ambitious...

And seeing Barron and Ryder get pet is both hilarious and adorable XD

To answer the question on your previous page about speech bubbles, I'd say that on desktop it's not *too* noticeable but on mobile you can really see pixelated black edges. I think it's maybe because the black line is too fine?

Haha I know right? Thank goodness they have him :P

Sid is ambitious and a bully haha.those qualities land him on the little less than good side hahaha but maybe he's not a hopeless case! (Like some other people we know *coughKalverick* X"D)

Oh wow! I hadn't noticed that at all D:..I even checked on my phone T_T. I think I found the proper way to save the files tho so...maybe you could tell me if it still seems that way on the latest pages? Thank you Proxy! <3

And we're back to action with this page! The top half of the page is absolutely marvelous; it's so incredibly dynamic. I love how Sid's pulled out the waterfall in the first big panel, followed by the shot with the motion lines dragging him through the air as they leap for the floor. It's amazing. The water really has a sense of drag to it, really conveying just how hard this is and how much energy it takes to do this. Very, very cool, Serpy, I applaud you.

And then we move below it, to the fall. Gosh dang it but those are two incredible panels! From the effort they exert to drag these two men up to safety, to Sid losing his grip and falling and Barron and Ryder's claws scraping into the brick... oh. Man. That panel's also got my favorite expression, because hot dang did you manage to nail the panic on Barron's face there.

Merek to the rescue with more action lines! Just very well done. I knew he wasn't going to fall, but I'd honestly forgotten that Ryder had called for Merek and wasn't expecting him to save the day. Should have known better! And Sid, for once, looks penitent. I like how it doesn't last for more than one panel. Very in character. XD

I'd like to take this moment to point out that Merek used one hand to grab Sid and pull him up so that he wasn't going to fall. One. Hand. Sid is carrying a barely conscious man on his back. He's wearing metal armor. They're both soaked to the bone, adding pounds in water weight. And Merek uses ONE HAND.

Sure, he then uses two to finish the job, but DANG. Let this page be all the proof we need as to how strong Merek is. Sure, it's not as supernaturally strong as Hizruk is, but that's some serious muscle he's got. Guh.

Aw, heck yes, it's my boy in the background, lookin' all cool~ Thank you again for letting me flesh him out! And I totally appreciate Kyle being a little brat there. What else are friends for?

Side note, there's a crack in the wall and it's leaking water. I don't know why I love that detail, but I do.
