Uuuuugh.

This took sooo looong.

This is Lux when he gets serious and can't do much else against his opponent. Think of it as a last resort. I don't think the extremely wavy part is very nice. The panel before Hydro says "Neat trick." seems to be the best to me. I kind of like it. This is the first time in a while I used Gimp for my effects.

I like everything here except that second to last panel. I don't really understand that one.

Also, maybe you should make a thin black outline to all the speech bubbles. I don't use gimp, so I can't really tell you how. Sorry.

@smash

In the second to last panel, you form some kind of blast thingy in your hand and charge at me. I know it's near impossible to tell what's going on, I kind of rushed with that effect. ^^"

@<Pepsi>:

The sword spinning waves thing? Well, I made gradient dots of black and white, and used the Waves Distort option, I believe. Of course, I used a new layer, so I duplicated that and flipped it horizontally.

In step form, I did this:

>New Layer
>Set Gradient to FG and Transparent
>Set Gradient shape to circular.
>Make Black and White Gradient dots.
>Open the Distort Options.
>Choose Waves.
>Set the amplitude and stuff to what is needed.
>Duplicate the Layer.
>Flip the layer horizontally.
>Merge the layers together and merge it to the Background (Or original) layer.
>Done.
