RegretSince playing the RE2 remake I’ve had a beef with how Leon just casually tossed aside the wristband Ada gave him so I had to make this.I imagine the grief of losing not only her (cough* cough*), but everyone else he came across, would make him super emotional. Perhaps he does put on a brave face for Claire and Sherry cause he is happy to have survived, but regrets his inability to save more people.It feels good to finally have drawn something again since its been a while.
Another Dawn- Page 01First page for Another Dawn- RE2 Fancomic that I’ve been working on for the better part of a month.I’ve been a fan of Resident Evil since 1998 when I first got a playstation and played the original RE2. To state the impact that game had on me as a 13 year old is probably just repetitive at this point since my staying in love with the series this long is proof enough. I fell in love with Claire and Leon when I was kid, having vivid dreams of surviving Raccoon City with them (one was us escaping a big explosion while on motorcycles. It was awesome.) So ever since then I’ve giddily awaited another installment with them as the main protagonists, playing every game and watching every movie I could afford and have time for.But a couple of things always got me mad and thats how they separated and how Sherry is treated like a super small kid.Like, hell no, Claire would not just “leave them in the wilderness to look for her brother” and Sherry is a super brave and smart pre-teen girl who OBVIOUSLY knows shits up and gone sideways.I always suspected the events that led to their separation would be intense, filled with drama and excruciating circumstances. There are tons of fanfictions and drawings out there that people have done for this part in their lives that have been a wonderful flash to my past of being a teenage girl getting stupid giddy over video game characters.Well, now I’m a 30 something grown ass woman, and still getting stupid giddy over video game characters. Only now, I got the skills to back up the passion.Its gonna be slowly released as I’m a working professional and mother to a rambunctious toddler, so bare with me.I hope you enjoy my take on the Post Raccoon City incident. Thank you for reading.
Another Dawn- Page 02If there is one thing I missed in the RE2 Remake is the inner dialog the characters had. It wasn’t much, but it was always such a funny hand holding moment for the story, just to make sure the player understood what was going on. It was corny, but endearing. So, it’s totally gonna happen in this comic. I’m not a writer by nature, so bare with me if things get effed up since I don’t know all the proper rules. Hope you enjoy.
Another Dawn- Page 03Now, there are a lot of theories out there why Leon never got infected.1. He was just super lucky.2. He’s part of the 3% of the population who is naturally immune to the T-virus.3. The only damage that ever happened to him is the bullet wound. No bites and whatnot.Well, thing with that is that even though the only true cannon damage he received was a bullet wound, he went MUCKING AROUND IN SEWER WATER right after. Sewage water below Raccoon City! THAT HAD T VIRUS IN ITS WATER SUPPLY!Now I’m not saying I’m gonna retcon the story so he is one of the 3% of the population thats immune, but I am gonna say that neither Claire or Leon knows anything. Therefore, anything is possible.
Another Dawn- Page 04Now, I know what you’re thinking. “CLAIRE WOULD NEVER DO THAT! OMG WHAT ARE YOU DOING AGHHHH!?!”Ok, now hear me out. Claire is a badass, we all know this. But one thing that always got me is how Claire is this badass college kid who is a biker and packing heat. Like, I dunno if thats just something cool the Japanese developers thought was a normal thing here in the states, but it is not at all a NORMAL thing. And therefore, Claire is FAR from a normal person and she’s wayyyy more than Chris’ little sister who “Couldn’t believe the stuff my brother showed me would come in handy” type of chick. I mean, how could Chris have showed Claire a bunch of badass things when he was supposedly out in the Air Force?I have a lot of ideas about her backstory that I think, especially with the remake, help develop her character. She’s someone with big dick energy that does what needs to get done who doesn’t always think thing through. Redfield hot headedness and all. And, well, you don’t get that way with an easy pare the course life.You better believe she’d do what needs getting done if its gonna protect her and Sherry, even if that means blowing off Leon’s head if he was gonna become a zombie threat.
Another Dawn- Page 05I actually had a hard time trying to justify this page. Originally this comic was gonna be set at night during the Respite illustration, therefore Claire reaching over to touch Leon would have been more justified since it was dark and maybe crickets were all loud and she couldn’t hear him breathe. But then in my art file I didn’t have all my night time colored layers on and I liked the flats I had, so I got lazy. lolSo then I just thought “Why not make Claire have a mini panic attack thinking Leon was actually dead?” Well, yah. Here it is.There was also a point where I was thinking how to do the heartbeat, just doing the typical comic book “thump thump” sfx didn’t fit right. So then came the game UI idea of the heartbeat line from the game. Does it work? What do you think?
Another Dawn- Page 06I’m happy with the way this page came out. From what you can see of Leon’s tired face and Sherry’s hair I feel like it’s one of the prettier pages. Though I have to be careful not to go to crazy with the rendering, otherwise I’ll never get this story done.Still, must have been so nice for Claire to feel a strong steady heartbeat, no?
