Ooooh oh just a few more questions .w.''

On the top right...who's hand is in between Sonic and Tails? The one pointing upwards? ^^;
And who's the girl Tails is chatting to?
And there's also a line next to the hand and it goes off to the right over tails ^^;

I wish you saved it and uploaded it as a JPG since I'll have to rely on photoshop now. (Yeah, it would be a pain to use Paint for this one. Lol)
No matter. Photoshop 7 it is.

It is JPEG. XD And I've always been using Photoshop 7 on a lot of my artwork.

My bad. XD
I meant to say that I wish you had uploaded it as PNG. The lines in PNG format are much cleaner than on a JPG since the white gets grainy around the line area. It's the same wherever there are color differences. PNG isn't that big of a file format either.

damn it lol i must do it :lol:
scene scripting from left to right top to bottom
lol

scene 1: {matinace problems}
assistant one: Tails forgive him he didn't know that your only supposed to put premium in the tornado
Tails: Right hook!!! (assistant two goes spinning to the ground}How dare you give my baby some back wash fuel
assistant two: i'm sorry sir.

scene 2{there there}
monkey kahn: don't worry Sally there's no need to cry
sally: but he ate my jello pudding pops i was saving for later.

scene 3(sonic brawl speed}:
sally: Sonic just couldn't keep up i'm sorry what can i say
Kahn: yeah i mean really if you want speed you have to go with meta knight.
Sonic: okay can you two please shut up about how they made my combo in brawl slower than a six inch high jason from kirby's superstar.
Tails: I honestly prefer yoshi
stunt double 1: yeah Link is my main fighter.
stunt double 2: is it my turn to be in the scene???
Scene 3{bad hummor}
tails: there it is guys, just over that hill is the cave of no return, and with in it lies the armor of invincibility
SOnic: why do i sence a bad joke about how could you know that an armor of invincibility is in such a cave if no one has returned from it, besides i thought we were looking for the power pole of son son over here.
Kahn: don't worry i got my power pole right...
Sally: i don't think the kids need to know where you keep your power pole kahn.

scene 4: {pudding retribution}
Kahn: i will protect sally's pudding from you kur
sonic: hey i just had one damn it

scene 5(fourth wall)
sinister figure1: well we ran out of good costumes and stuff so i couldn't really dress the part... ooh look master readers! they will surely tell sonic of our plans.
master: yes but they are also the ones that make us popular villians and make sure we'll come back in the next story line.I'm sure that they will keep their mouths shut if they know whats good for them
page done:)

Just checked the recent ish. Love how someone finally bothered to flesh the Foursome out. The backstory with the "web of fate" for the Gossamer clan kinda reminds me of the movie version of Wanted with that weird loom in it. As for Li Moon, she looks mucho pretty in Yardley's style. <3

Wow. So much to color here and I personally love it. Are you going to be doing the second half of this arc of a pic like this one where it will show them with the last two brides they need to talk to who are the Raiju Clan(Bride of Conquering Storm) and the Shinobi Clan(Bride of Constant Vigil)? ^^ BTW, you don't mind if I can try coloring this out and submit it in my gallery? Don't worry, I'll give you credit that you did it. ^^ :D

And yes I may very well do a PART II to this - the other two brides have not been revealed yet! So there is a good chance I will do it! ;)

Well about the contest, I just found out about it today. But yeah if you do a part 2 of this, that would be great which would show the other 2 brides we have yet to see. BTW, you think that you may plan to some pics someday of this bride known as Conquering Storm? She is one of my favorites out of them and that not to mention that she is a fan favorite.

Haven't seen a piece this big since your oldschool works! This one's pretty impressive in itself, but I like your penciling a whole lot more.
