Artem's super secret special move is... Rock Throw! (It's super effective!)

Ha, now that would be ridiculous xD points to the lad for ingenuity, as he's done a mighty fine job of getting back in the fray. Artem fights fire with fire, using Ramon's own trash talk against him in hopes of goading him back to the battlefield!

And Ramon not exactly being the most level-headed of folk when it comes to the mage food chain may well work in Artem's favour.

Here's a little behind-the-scenes nugget of information. Ch 2 was never meant to go on this long! In fact, most of this update had to be written on the fly to pad the fight out a bit longer and pace it properly. I wrote the drafts around March this year when I wasn't as used to how scripts would translate into the final product.

Funnily enough, those drafts are used more as very loose guidelines rather than directly lifting stuff from them. A lot of it hardly makes the final cut. For example, when Artem finally got up before, he said a token shonen line about 'never taking the easy way out' but now that it's gotten a bit more personal for him, I changed things appropriately.

Part of the reason updates take a week is actually because Monday/Tuesday are used for writing/amending new dialogue and ironing out a storyboard. I'm working without a buffer as I intended to use 6 pages/2 weeks for the entirety of Vitreous' run. But since I made the change, I've had to work double fast!

Chapter 3 is just around the corner and it's basically gonna just be what should've been the second half of Ch 2. We'll go straight into it in a few weeks time instead of taking a break...

I hope you all liked this week's pages - see you next Monday for 3 more!

If he were a calm and collected mage I imagine this fight would be... A little harder, no ego to get in the way

Awww seems like Artem is one of those People who will keep getting up even if they almost can't stand anymore...
Hopefully rock-throwing isn't his only secret move, because Ramon's gotta be pissed as fuck right now!

It's 2 to 1 for Artem right now! (actual hits, including the rock throw)

Artem may not have ever had a real fight before, but he's got some ingenious tricks in his arsenal - stay posted...

And yep, he's an ambitious man to do what he does. He's quite literally keeping the mage equality sentiment alive single-handedly!
