Murphy Allen, aka "Glitch" is a... ghost? alien? something else? Okay, I don't know exactly what the heck he's supposed to be, but that's not important.

Has a few powers: possessing/messing up electronics, literal photographic memory, minor illusion stuff, and short-range teleportation. Whenever he uses his powers it causes the sort of distortions shown here. Except for a couple uses of his illusion abilities.

Even though he's a... something, he's still pretty much a teenager. Which doesn't bode well for how exactly he uses his powers.

Okay, he started out as just me messing with the filters and stuff in the art program I use but now he might have to appear in my comic.

Edit-- sorry the image is so big

I just messed around with filters and blending modes and stuff. One of the few uses of chromatic aberration, channel operations, and mosaic that actually look nice. Also found I could get some nice glitch effects from copy/pasting a few chunks of the art onto another layer and shifting it a bit. Even just a few bars of black and bright, full-saturation colours adds a lot.

(sorry for the wall of text. Wish the comments had spoiler tags like the forum.)
