NOT A REAL UNIVERSITY. But it should be, with a mosaic and a freakin' bell tower, eh?
If you're an old hand of mine, you'll recognize the guy in the back ~
FIRST. This panel shows that a page can be very successful without dialogue, since as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
And the dude in the back looks like he has... branches coming out of his head.
And perhaps this wasn't intentional but the entrance to the school looks like a giant face. And it looks like it's about to swallow our hero. A reference to the rigors of college life? Or the stuff that's going to go down when he meets up with his "buddy"?
If this university existed I would be there so fast, you don't even know.
I love how this page turned out. Starssss. Also the bell tower looks twenty kinds of amazing. ALSO HI MISTER PERSON LURKING IN THE BACK I should know who this is but me + names = NOPE LOL.
The dude in the back DOES have branches coming out of his head. They are branch-antlers. You'll meet him later.
I totally didn't mean to make the entrance look like a face, but the low angle was indeed meant to make it look intimidating, as starting college often is.
WHY HELLO BLAKE I SEE YOU THERE. You little bitch. Stop stalking poor freshmen.
In any case, I love the colors and perspective of this page. You don't see a comic in watercolor very often.
Perspective! <3 Love it.
