Part III: [link]

I'm gonna be honest! I'm really torn between being happy that I finished this and being really sad that I'm probably going to have to go back and do a lot of edits for continuity and general reworking of bad drawings!

I mean there's definitely at least one set-up where the ground plane is like "lol bbiab"

So it's pretty embarrassing that this took so long to finish! My defense is that I thumbnailed it when I had a lot of free time and then school started so I ended up using this mostly as a warm-up before starting homework. D:

EDIT: There's a dumb little musical reference in the dialogue, did anyone catch it? XD I'm not sure how many people have seen this particular musical (hint: it's not a Jekyll and Hyde reference)

WARNING: This final section is kind of TL;DR territory.
This section has very little action and a lot of talking and is mostly Frankenstein riding through his hopefully not too contrived character arc.

Right now it seems intrinsic to his personality that he does not become introspective unless he is severely injured and/or bedridden. Otherwise, he is more likely to expel any confusing emotions in the form of, say, a two-month trek through the wilderness.

He is not someone who is ordinarily very good at understanding other people's emotions (something Creature can attest to, according to canon), so someone like Hyde, who is extremely confusing from nearly anyone's perspective, is essentially an emotional black hole that Frankenstein generally just tries to ignore.

Creature is correct, though! Edward Hyde does consider Frankenstein a friend, and is perhaps more affectionate towards him (granted, he is the sort of person to show affection in the manner of, say, a lion) than Jekyll is. Sometimes Hyde can get a little bored with his friends and, you know, kill them and things (as Lucy can attest to), but if he were going to kill Frankenstein, he would have done it before they left London. No point in killing your only guide through an epic wilderness.

Is Hyde... crying? Or is that just blood congealing around his eye?

I think it's either blood, or anime-style sweat.

Only in this, you would ask that kind of question...
I like to imagine your Jekyll/Hyde to sound like Bakura from the 4Kids! dub of Yugioh.

So I just stumbled onto your account and I've been looking through some stuff and AH MAH GAWD <3

Frankenstein is my favorite thing.  I'm totally in love~

Mr. Hyde is definitely my second favorite.  I've become an instant fan. ^.^

You don't happen to still have commission slots available, do you? <.<   ~<3
I swear, you have such wonderful character designs. Especially Hyde. :D

I really enjoyed this! I just discovered your dA, so I'm just going through all your Jekyll and Hyde stuff. And that next to normal reference-awesome!!! :)
Hyde reminds me of myself quite a lot, except that I am slightly less violent.
These are excellent storyboards and I love the interactions between these two different characters. :) Hyde is also a great character in that he is dangerous and unnerving but at the same time human. He's clearly a crazy dangerous guy, rather than a crazy dangerous monster. Also, MAJOR bonus points for having Frankenstein's monster being called Creature in stead of Frankenstein.

Plus you have a great sense for when to go into detail in your boards and when to let a panel take up more time. They all have a great sense of flow and I really like the format you have here. Plus I never say no to snark, and Jekyll has that in spades. :XD:
