On a somewhat related note, if I were the one to design what Harry Potter looked like, his scar would look a lot like this. Because when I think of lightning, I think of a huge, branching, jagged streak across the sky, not a neat little zig-zag line. And hey, if you got hit with a super bad curse, I would think it would leave behind something a little worse. But that's just me.
Wow, I cannot believe I've had this page ready to post for the last, what, week? and somehow I still forgot to post it on time. I'm not even sure how that happened. XD
AlpineBob- Yeah, it is mostly for the story. I could probably get away without a restart as far as the plot goes, since up to this point the basic information hasn't changed, but I feel like it would be too clumsy to work in the changes I've made from this part of the story. I guess at this point it sort of is for the art as well, because ever since I decided I wanted to do a restart, I've been working on redesigning some of the characters (mostly the minor ones), and even a bit of the world, because a lot of that was designed on the fly the first time around.
It's your comic, so you do what makes you happy. (Like you need me to say that; I'm so full of myself today.) Personally, I liked Lucrecio's look as is. And it is relatively easy to draw. That long branching scar thing does look awesome, but it will be a pain to draw in a lot of perspectives. Fortunately, he isn't in a lot of scenes. So far, at least.
Harry Potter's scar is miniscule, considering its import, I agree.
