ASHWORTH Volume01-CHP03-Pg70 by darkspeeds ASHWORTH Volume01-CHP03-Pg70 by darkspeeds
  • The Grand ASHWORTH Fortune: Volume 01, Chapter 03 - Expect The Unexpected
    (edited on 24th April 2008)

  • Format: Western, reading from LEFT to RIGHT


    Hi again guys! I'm definitely am enjoying my time in Singapore with my family and relatives. I share my thanks and appreciation for looking after me and showing me around this great city! Oh who can forget the eating and shopping? Singapore rules.

    Also I've been in touch with Singapore's top publisher for in house and mainstream manga overseas. I have spoken to chief-in-editor Flora in their office and it was most insightful. More on this when I update my journal (as soon as I come back from my photoshoot with my sibblings today! :D)

    Anyway hope you'll enjoy this page! Only two more preview pages left! ;)

    Keep up the awesome work guys and cheers even more so for your wonderful support! :hug:

    Omg Chibi Duke 8D He's so cuuutteee.. :giggle: And he's smiling~ x3 Man, the more I read, the more Stream becomes...I dunno...I'm bad when it comes to words. :XD: But it just seems like he's almost a completely different person from Chapter 1...-insert Transformers reference joke. :XD: *shot*- Still. there's that sort of shift where he's a good guy, but now he appears to be the bad guy. Ah, and Duke...he's just down-right sexy. :XD: :giggle: They're both a little dark and mysterious at times, but that's just the kind of character I like in a story...sometimes I wonder just who it is I like more though...=P I thought Stream had won the battle but I find that I really like Duke too. The upcoming battle (the one that's actually in the story! :giggle:) excites me, but I'm afraid to see who's gonna lose. XD;; Ooh, can't wait to hear more about your chat with Flora. ;) It seems you're in Tokyo right now. That must be really exciting too! x3 Hope the rest of your trip is swell, Elson. :thumbsup: =)

    Thanks Stephie! :)

    I had good times talking to Flora in their office in Singapore! :D She had a lot to share in terms of industry knowledge about the comics market.

    I'm glad to hear of your feedback on Duke and Stream! I really appreciate it! ;) Only time will tell on who will win! :D

    And yes Tokyo is exciting. ^_~ *thumbs up*

    wow young duke kinda has the look of a potental video game character there and i like how he looked in the middle with the angle and to be some sort of aura. And i quite like how the person in the last frame looked with that maniacal pose and the rain effects.
    Awesome job.

    Wow. Stream looks pretty corrupt now. The whole thing about possessing power and insensitivity towards Duke's parents...Wow, Stream is an ass!
    So that's what Duke's father looks like. And himself as a young un'; So cute!
    Can I say Stream looks great now he's lost the hat and has new gear, looks more buff!

    Another great page, Dark! I can't wait until book 2 is for sale. Young Duke reminds me of Tails-they're both adorable! And grown up he's very attractive. I also like the rain effect on the last few panels. Awesome work!

    WE FOUND HOW DUKE´S DADDY LOOKS! XD
    Just kidding^^ But I have to confess that I was curious about that...nah, Duke is still the sexy fox of his family :giggle:
    Stream got some guts to reveal Duke´s past, omg....but he is so coooooooooooool!! (bad side is cool sometimes! Especially when the badass have good looking...)

    The deadline of the contests is today, right? Anyway, if is better to give more time for the end of contest, that´s ok ;)

    Ah, a last thing: I did to resolve the problem of the expensive number of the paypal! Now I can buy without problems, so reserve me a book ok?^^

    Keep having a great time in Singapure!

    Ha ha! Yeah! XXD

    And yes indeed he is the sexy one in the family - unless he has a lovely sister or handsome bro! O.O;; LOL! XXD

    Bad guys always have a cool side, it is important you don't overdo their cool factor or it'll lose appeal to the reader. :D

    I'm currently writing this in Tokyo! XD I hope I can do as much as I can with only half an hour to go! :D

    Thanks for your compliments and feedback on Duke! X3

    D-duke! Little Duke! Aww man, how adorable! He looks happy to be training too.

    Man there is SO much information on this page that is just overwhelming to read through. Duke's proving that since he was young he's been enthusiastic about being on eof the bests... But what had he needed to sacrifice to get where he is? Certainly emotion is one, naivity..... Maybe even believening wild dreams.

    Duke is really more of an amazing character then I initially thought. It's clear that you may have more then one story line going on here, if you develope in that way, then I gotta say you'll have definately mesmerized me for life.

    Well, I gotta cut it short. ^^; I'll add on later.

    Everytime I get your feedback AgentWebdog I'm always invited into something rewarding to read through. :)

    Yes Duke Vienna is more than meets the eye! XD Well actually this pretty much sums up who he is and where he comes from (if you combine what Stream says with the profile I've written on the TGAF official website).

    He is very much like the anti hero of the series. ;) He is bound by his duties to bring justice wherever he and his men go but when he encounters the TGAF Guild from time to time it will slowly shape the way he things about what is truly right and wrong. Salah is there to help him on this journey to maintain peace and prejudice. *thumbs up* :D
