    I assume all-knowing in this case means that she knows what she's going to do before she does it. Why did she save Allison? It's what she does. At this place and time.

    Couldn't they do the plan tomorrow instead? Xykon's team has been at this dungeon for ages now.

    You know what? Nanowrimo's cancelled on account of the world is stupid.

    I think Xykon's group just figured out the scam recently? So maybe there won't be another chance.

    It looks like he dumped the rest of them because they were doing boring non-killing stuff, so this is probably still their best chance to get him alone.

    Someone, somewhere must have done a great job translating actor faces to realistic comic art but I haven't seen it.

    certainly not by doing traces of movie stills like that
    you need some small element of caricature or it looks bizarre like that

    It amazes me that Greg Land is paid actual money for this shit.

    The value of being consistently reliable I guess.

    As someone who has had to commission artists for ongoing regular work

    you will put up with a lot for someone who can actually produce something every month

    it's also not uncommon that something that looks good at the resolution you did it at gets Fucked Up somehow when minimizing it to print resolution

    He was also a lot better earlier in his career and lets face it "It's all about who you know" has always been true in every industry. You can get by just by turning work on time AND already being a reputable part of the industry with numerous contacts.

    This is based on a still from RotJ when Luke is going ham on Vader. I just instinctually knew the moment I saw this.

    what an absolutely strange still to pick, but I guess it's the only one where there's enough focus to trace the likeness

    Tracing can be a powerful tool in an (especially new) artists repertoire as a means to progress but it should never be used as anything but practice.

    Tracing a movie frame is right on the borderline of what I would consider unethical.

    If Jadis, basically the strongest of the lot outside of Zoss before she boxed herself in, turns out to be a bit of a goof I'll absolutely love it.

    I understand this from the perspective it's usually used in, which is plagiarism, but if you're literally commissioned to make "the movie, with the actors recognizable, but in comic form", tracing or copying iconic shots seems like... the job?

    That is hardly what I would consider an "iconic shot".

    It's certainly not iconic in that particular freeze frame

    Well yeah, but the problem is being bad at choosing what to trace, not the ethics of tracing it
