Dang! Did not expect this, the emotions here are intense and the last two panels are communicating so much. The scars and (tattoos?) make me feel sorry for this girl, and I don't know her haha.

Wonder what's up with who I'm recklessly assuming to be her father? Looks possessed O_O

Also the first panel gives me some awesome classic horror movie composition!

You're right in that he's the dad (also going for "worst father of the year"?) and that there's something going on with him that's taken this beyond a "normal" domestic situation. You'll note that he's got similar markings on his arm. Bit more on that later.

And thanks, I was really pleased with how that first panel came out. =)

No, I think your first instinct may be close unfortunately. O_o

Poor kid :( The matching arm tattoos(?) are strange... probably have to do with the instructions that the man is talking about. The weapon he's holding might play a role too, since it doesn't look like a knife you'd find in an average house.

The, let’s call them markings for now, and the other stuff is def connected. But it’s also important to point out that outside of that (and the bulges and blood on dad’s face), this does seem like an average kind of household doesn’t it? Maybe someone got in over their head? :x

Are... all his teeth gone? Because that's probably not an effect he wanted.

Teeth are still there (though looking at the close-up in retrospect it kinda does look like gums though), but the inside of his head has taken a pounding from whatever he's most likely done to himself.

The girl looks a bit like Mary when she was much younger, probably coincidental but it should give Mary even more drive to wreck this bastard

Well, Mary is originally from England. Maybe it's the look of the people. ;)

And if only can hurry it up and get here. At this rate, she's liable to miss out on the perfect wreckoning!

Oh, great. Another zombie fr Mary to deal with. ><

I perceive anther step up in artistry. Perspective, flow, motion--and I just love the little gleam on the point of the athame.

It seems that somebody bungled an incantation, and is looking for a scapegoat....

You're probably pretty spot on with what dad's been up to. Before you is just one of the reasons why they require a license to practice the paranormal arts in Victoria. Amateurs need not apply…

And thank you, I won't lie and say this scene came out this way without a hitch. I had some difficulties with it, for a variety of reasons that also spill into the next page. But I'm pretty happy with it (and the next one).

I almost forgot to add that gleam too! I only realized it needed something extra when I was finishing up the page. =D
