Vallov has a tendency to startle people when they meet him for the first time. Can’t imagine why…
And where’d Jack go?
If anyone’s interested, I am now taking ART COMMISSIONS at my Deviantart page! See my latest journal entry for info.
Yes, Bettie survived the remake. She’s too handy of a little creature for Jack not to have! (Even if bats are a pain in the ass to draw sometimes.)
FYI, Jack had an inkling about the closet, but he didn’t actually notice Jill peeking out at him. Here he decides that he was being paranoid.
Jack finds a ripped sheet that smells like blonde girl.
Also, yes I’d say Topaz has become more hardened than he was in VPX and even the old VP. This was only because his position wouldn’t make sense otherwise. He would have never stuck with Jack and tolerated, or in this case even helped out with, some of the abhorrent things he must do for Orlock (or sometimes, even just for the hell of it) if he had remained a completely benign person.
That’s kind of what I was trying to show at the end of VPX. He was afraid of embracing his darker side at first, but ultimately does.
I’d still say he has changed the least of all the characters, as you’ll see later.
“Blood Junkies”: Vampires hopelessly addicted to blood after overindulging one too many times. Their life is blood and they are constantly searching for their next “fix”. In a way, they are little more than animals running on instinct. Identified by their dilated pupils.
Every time I update, there is a new preview of the next page as a voting incentive…so vote to see it! (Though it takes a while for incentives to change, so you won’t see it RIGHT when I update. If you’re EST, it seems to comes up at about 3AM.)
