Practice Makes Perfect by darkspeeds Practice Makes Perfect by darkspeeds
Thank you to the overwhelming response to the page that was drawn and dedicated to a fellow artist who is in pursuit to appreciate, learn and improve more on his manga. As mentioned already on the previous deviation his name is Pachamac and I give credit to his inspirational feedback, willingness to learn and strong passion for continuous improvement (not that he needs a lot! LOL! XD He's already very good in his drawing. ^_~).

Thanks for the huge and positive reply back there buddy, I hope this compiled drawing of the previous page 'with a couple little extras ^^' will give you a better picture on the comparisons between the two pages. :) :hug:

Further thanks to Wraith for her wonderful time and effort to reply on that deviation - I learn much from your words too. ^_~

And of course to everyone for their personal comments! *chuckle* Even little sis' Karou-chan replied... I knew you were going to reply to this one little sis - man just you wait till I finish the final 38 pages of SA2 Fan-Comic - that's a promise. ;) :giggle: I will make sure I get back to the others too for their brilliant replies. Catch you all soon. :D


P.S. To my dearly beloved Bobbi, I love you with everything I've got in life, you are always here in my heart as I whisper you name each morning to remind myself of your sweet and cheerful smiles. Take care while I'm gone... ~ :heart:

I reallly admire your works! :D
I love your Soinc and Ashworth comics! All of them are suspenseful and action-filled and exciting! You work is just so amazing I can't even think of words on how to explain how amazing your comics are! :clap: This is some seriously amazing work! Not only are your stories amazing but art is just magnificent! :worship:
Keep up the good work!

Ack, I can't believe I hadn't seen this sooner. ^^; Sorry about that Darkspeeds.

This is very helpful though and its good to see a better way of producing the comic. I don't usually do much consideration before on what a page would have looked before now, I usually just drew what would have come next. This is very helpful and handy though and I appreciate your effort in this. :) The comments were also great and it was good fun reading it. You put my work to shame though, your work is soooooo much better. ^_________^ I guess I'll have to do a lot more practice. :) Thanks for the help in this and I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner. :hug:

And you don't normally use guidelines? I guess you've gotten to that stage then when you can skillfully draw a page well enough to not have to use them. :) :+fav:

Oooooh!

It's awesome to see Pachamac's version, then both the sketchy and completed versions of your page. I like all the little notes you add to explain things and whatnot. The little note thingy with an icon of yourself there is really cute. XD I love when you draw little faces like that. It's cool to see how much you add in when you're doing the pencil shading portion of the comic page. Awesome as always =]

Uhm... Wow... Now that you mentioned it... O.O What an interesting question!!! LMAO! XXD I actually do see changes in my style from time to time. :) Just a day ago I was flicking through all 183 pages of SA2 Fan-Comic and marvelled at the evolution of different styles used to portray a good story. ^_^ I have people like you to thank because of positive and encouraging feedback. ^_~ *thumbs up*

I can still see that my manga can improve much more than ever before! XD I say so because I'm engaged in 'continous learning' when I see other people's work, styles and methods used. ;) I try to incorporate what I observe with the current skills I have with drawing. Sometimes it's like Einstein and you'll say 'Eureka!' when something fresh happens and you start to use it more often. ^^

^Exactly. That's one of the reasons I like the bonus content in DVD. :XD: Looking at stuff before it is finished is pretty awesome too. :)

Darkspeeds, it would be interesting to see how you draw something from basic to final too. Do...you have a camcorder to record yourself??

LMAO!!!! Holy moly maybe my webcam/digital camera can do that! *SHOT* XXXXXXXD *chuckle* ^^ Thanks for pointing out these neat and cool ideas buddy. ^_~ I also agree with you on the bonus content on DVD, it adds so much value and satisfaction after appreciating a really good product. :) Hey... Maybe I can make a special DVD of Darkspeeds studios in future if I'm ever a successful game manga artist? LOL! XXD If that ever happens I've got lots of people to give credit to! XX3 That includes you. ;) *thumbs up*

Aw dear....i'm so sorry for the lack of comments on your work, bro!!!!! >-o;;;; but you know, i'm not too good with words and all.....but when something touches me deeply, my fingers run across the keyboard on their free will. < 3;
And omg......just after seeing this page (the previous deviation), i dlownloaded the new E3 trailer for the Shadow game and like......dear god. i swear the scene was taken from this comic. o_o;;; i dunno if you've seen it yet, Elson...but it was really something. The CG animation they pulled off this time is si ply amazing. The characters are finally starting to look 'alive' and full of vigour. Simply beautiful. Sonic was also in the trailer and he was struggling to stand up (i guess after a series of fights prolly against Shadow....or so i figured) and his arm - you could see it shaking! i was like...."omg.....omg, he's gonna step out of the screen any second!" ok, maybe that's a bit of fangirl-overreaction of some kind but after Sonic Heroes - this was a huge step in CG development considering Sonic Team. Now i'm totally hypered up and can't wait for it to be released! <3 ...........but i'm getting tired of all the "ew that gun...." and "um, yeah....nice....we'll see..." . yeah. we'll see. but simply the lack of interest around me is so depressing. It pulls down my mood completely and i get all agressive and become prone to start a fight over this and all.... .-.;;;;

But whatever. I'm glad we'll see Shadow's past finally uncovered and all. Wow, i wonder if Maria's gonna be in it and if she'll look pretty....o_O; well, i hope. xD
And omg i can't wait to see how you'll portray the ending of the SA2 fanmanga eeeee~ ;.; :heart: <333 :glomp:

Gosh what a long reply! LMAO! XD Thanks Alexa for sharing your thoughts futhermore on Shadow and the influences it has to those who appreciate him very much. ^_^ Thank you also for sharing new info on the CG animation that is currently used in Sonic Team's latest installments, I have a feeling they will blow me away when I watch them during gameplay. :D

Oh? You think that this game is in context to his past? Hmm.. It may be so little sis'! O.O I haven't thought of it from that point of view, I assume that it is set after Sonic Heroes... Hmmm... n_n... If there is Maria in it then... Then I had better get a move on with the SA2 Fan-Comic! There are crucial never-before seen flashbacks to be put into the manga! Gargh! I hope Sonic Team hasn't done it yet! I want to be there first for the Shadow fans! LMAO! XXXD *SHOT* *chuckles a bunch... :giggle:*

It's really cool how you picked Pach's idea and drew it yourself... *wink* I sure love to see how your work is done. Really? You don't use guidelines? *giggles* That makes two of us! I can't wait to see more of your awesome comics, be it Sonic or Klonoa! ^_^
