Sydney, just after finding her little tagalongs.

Edit: I somehow originally made her eyes blue, I've updated the wallpaper with her baby browns.

I've got Gustav Holst's "Mercury: The winged messenger: and somehow it fits with what must have been Sydney's first minutes of flying around.

i love dat Red Orb going " wheeeeee" along the water surface. Makes you wonder if the orbs are actually sentient or have some sort of AI ( weather it be a single entity or no )

Hmm eventually the origins of those orbs will be revealed, I got my own theories though and can probably help with em if asked.

This also shows that Sidney actually does have a figure (however slight it is).

And this is where she learns the Bends are a real bitch!

Wait a minute! It only occurred to me now...

At what depth did she find the orbs of power? I'm no diver or anything, but wouldn't a rapid rise like she just did thanks to her flight orb give her the bends or something? :-o

Well, we don't know that she didn't do a decompression stop.

Uh, probably deeper than I drew her finding them. I'm not sure how she avoided the bends, maybe she just came up slowly.

the bends is decompression sickness so technically fling from sea level to a very high altitude would also cause it so maybe the flight orb auto protects against the bends like it does fear of heights and air sickness

Hmmm, unknown (medical) orb kicks in, prevents damage automatically, however for actual healing contact is needed?

Maybe the flying orb works by negating gravity's force so when she found them it didn't matter how deep they where because the pressure that would cause the bends was removed.

Can you at all imagine Sydney coming up slowly? She could have gotten lucky

She managed to get through a multi-day certificate course. She may have ADHD but she's not suicidal.

If her eyes got any bigger they would be Manga... XD
But in this situation I think this surprised reaction would fit on anyone... :o

I love the detail so far as the imprint the goggles left on her face. And the detail you paid from the comic where the flight orb is the one she found first. This is actually what happened, very cool.

Huh...I didn't notice that. Good catch. (Though looking through the archives, her eyes look blue on the page where she finds the orbs [which could just be the effect of the bluish scuba mask, of course].)

XD I was wondering how long it took before she figured out they weren't normal marbles or something that just fell in the water.

also, she's cute without glasses =3

I can so easily see her flinching as that green one passes in front of her eyes, only to have it follow her as she rotates backwards, arms flailing wildly as she eventually ends upside down with the top of her head in the water and a frown on her face as the orbs orbit around her.

I'd laugh if one of those hit her in the head as it zoomed towards her.

nah dave already mentioned it back in his comments on www.grrlpowercomic.com/archive… that page. the orbs could only collide with her or each other if she was purposefully controlling them.
