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:

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 =]

Nice remake on the original
just simple add images can bring out
more emotion and more elaborate perspectives

Very dramatic, i love your mangaish art style. Do you ever feel that it is evolving?

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. ^^
