Spark Comic #55 - Rainbow Gate

And what happened then? Well, in Hyrule they say that Ghirahim's heart grew three rainbows that day.

I finished Skyward Sword ages ago, around the time it came out, and I loved it. It's not my favorite Zelda, Wind Waker still takes that spot, but I still think it's a fun game and I enjoyed it. I did think that the lack of Ganon would deter me a bit, but surprisingly it didn't. Ghirahim was a fresh antagonist, he was weird, offsetting, and would've been more interesting than he already is if Nintendo had manned up and given him a voice. I would've loved to see Skyward Sword voice acted, sans Link, and the game felt like that was one thing that it was missing. Even so, I imagined voices in my head and the part where Ghirahim says that revelation, "filled his heart with rainbows" hilariously stuck with me I've had this comic sitting in my script folder ever since. It's nice to finally get it out there. Ghirahim may be creepy, but he's also hilariously FABULOUS!

This page may seem a bit different than normal. I put a lot of effort into the backgrounds in addition to the characters looking good. I also tried a few different coloring techniques that I wanted to experiment with. Not sure if it's noticable or makes a real difference art-wise, but let me know if it does. The Gates of Time drawings look crappy for a reason though. They're a slight reference to my old drawings comic. In this case, they intentionally look like they were drawn by a 5 year-old. This was my first time drawing Ghirahim and Fi and it was quite difficult figuring out how to adapt them to the comic whilst making it look right. Still, I'm happy with how this comic turned out in the end.

See you next comic! :)
