These have always been very good. I don't remember. Your own personal project? Someone else wrote them? A fan manga, nothing licensed? I forget, but always thought it was a commission for a fan who wrote the stories.
Man. I've dreamed of hiring you to do my own comics for years now. Got this one with a shape-shifting bakeneko samurai cat living in feudal Japan that you'd be perfect for. But can't afford ya, ha ha ha... Hope you're doing well, Tazi. Keep up the great work and God bless!
This is just a NR fanfic I started adapting years ago and decided to just finish it so I can say I have something under my belt. That and I really enjoy her stories. After this I want to try and do some original, publishable stuff.
Trust me, working a day job making comics, storyboards, concept art, and illustrations would be a dream job...
That means you're not currently in a job like that? Aw, that's too bad. I wish I was too, but as confident as I am, I think I need a lot more practice and training. Right now I have a job I like but not the one I wish I was working. It's just customer service and doesn't pay much. I'm hoping to ... keep doing SuperMilo the comic strip until I can make a trade or something... Maybe try to get a job or some advice or something at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC this June 8th... Ever been up this way for the con? Anyway, I need to talk to some professionals about what to expect and the requirements for getting and keeping a dream day job like we both would like. Hoping to do that at the con too.
Sorry for the late response, I've got something to share. My dad's reading this book called "I Am Second" that has a lot of testimonies from people today and how life became infinitely more rich when they put him first. I think that as long as you're keeping God first, your drawings will continue to glorify him. ^^
Great work as usual. I like the elaborate snarl sound effect and how page 62 forgoes dialogue by illustrating Spike's thoughts. I hope he's a good enough fisher to catch a meal for him and poor Zeff. Of course, Zeff may become a meal herself pretty quick.
BTW, any reason why you broke the trend and added colour on page 63? Another thing, if you read the Sonic Sea3on comic, you'll notice a new character has appeared who is also called Zephyr. Seems like a popular name for Sonic girls.
Well, the tone seems rather scary and intense and suspenseful and.... Oh, you mean the art tone! Sorry.
Well, there's a generous use of black here compared to the previous pages, which is appropriate for the tenseness of the scene. Extending the black to the bleed of the page expands the silhouetted scenery beyond the confines of the panel and helps camouflage the shadow of the wolf in the top-right. You've even altered the style of the panel borders at the bottom to reflect Spike's panic. These changes show you're adapting the format of the page to match the content, which I hope to see more of in the future.
However, I'm a little sceptical about the introduction of colour. I don't believe it contributes much to the scene, since it's purely monochromatic and therefore no more effective than illustrating the lamplight in black and white. Up until now this has been a black and white comic, and I believe that makes the imagery more subjective since it relies purely on contrast to express the form, tone and texture without the use of colour. Many manga comics can achieve striking visuals by their juxtaposition of light and shadow that a colour image would lack. Similarly, I feel you can attain some very expressive scenes through your creative use of contrast without relying on hue as a crutch.
