I've now used GIMP a few times to manipulate the images beyond the pieces - to fix the colouring of the "skin tone" on a torso, to swap eyes for Lady M's expression, and now to add a visual effect (as is the case here). I've also seen people alter expressions or add "swoosh lines" to their strips. I suppose the sky's the limit for alterations that one can make, unless there's a "Dogme 95" for Lego webcomics that I don't know about.
Hmmm... that may be a new record for pretension in one of my posts.
So what's with the porter's eye? And maybe if he'd stopped going on about the knocking, he could've gotten to the door faster. ;) :P
I cut down the porter's lines as it is - there's three more professions he disses!
As for the eye... be patient. ;)
lol. Ok. *waits*
