"You know what would be cool? If like, the ropes gave way due to the burning, so that Frenzy can then clamber into the ring and start whirling it over his head, ready to be used as a whip. Like, that'd be sweet. I'm sure future me won't have any regrets about trying to present this to his audience. No regrets at all."
Also, oh good, internet is doing that 'cutting in and out' thing again as I try to upload this page. It seems to like doing that.

Sooo, yeah! Had a lot of things back and forth on if I should sign up to the WST or not. Some rather encouraging, some... not so much, but yeah.
Essentially, I've decided for now not to enter. This isn't due to any lack of want, nor is it to do with a lack of willigness to put things on hold during the tournament. Instead, it's more to do with the length of the rounds - about 2 weeks. I imagine in 2 weeks at absoloute max I'd get... 4 FNF-style/size pages done. If you've been following the matches here closely, you might note the fights I tend to write go on significantly longer than that - I'd really struggle tuning down a fight to that length, plus I think I'd be going up against significantly longer comics with more content. With work being how it is, I unfortunately don't think I could quite match-up unfortunately.
Still, I do plan to enter eventually - perhaps when time is more forgiving to me, and when I've really picked up the speed at which I produce pages. So... no WST for now. But in the future? Keeping my eye on the ball.

Improvisional weapons are a crowd favourite. Chalk me up on Frenzy's side for creativity~ owo

Also, that sucks about the WST. But it's a smart choice Dreg. =3
Here's hoping the next run about comes at a time where work is being less time-consuming~! =D

@Axan: Aye, shadows are something I'm really wanting to get into using properly. Unfortunately, the way I make comics is really... archaic, and probably extremely impractical. Things like shadows I can do... buuut they'll take an aeon in my current approach to making pages. I need to set aside time at some point to rework how I do pages from the ground up - probably sometime after I do page 400 in Bar'd (my other prime series), so I'm not trying to change up absoloutely everything whilst also doing an absoloutely enormous page, so yeah. Will ideally do shadows in the comic future.
Either way, thank you very much for the feedback - and glad you're enjoying it!
