Day 4: Freeze. One thing I miss about drawing comics in a purely traditional way is the ability to create over-the-top ornate word balloons. Having someone speak frostily with not just icicles dripping from the word balloon, but with igloos and penguins and frost fractals on the surface. So here’s one example. But who will get to talk like that? I thought it might be a good idea to have a villain speak those chilling words. So here’s my new super villain OC, Theodorus Peel, a tech billionaire with a sideline in medical experiments on living people. His dress is casual-ish, his hair is unassuming, his bodyguards can knock a whole dimension out of you with their bare fists. Do not cross him.
