Serious Payback by darkspeeds Serious Payback by darkspeeds
This took roughly 4 hours or so to complete from start to finish.


Somebody's going to get owned. :D


A little background on this concept piece - one of the common TGAF parties consisting of Ash, Ruby, Fei and Parmir (true version) were betrayed by a third party during a mission to protect a township from an invasion of bandits.


Now it's the moment where they make their come back and take possession of a vital stolen ornament, stolen earlier by the third party (design for this is yet to be determined), that belonged to the township they were guarding for bounty. The ornament is believe to bring good fortune to the people during a harvest.


I may probably make a quick animation short out of this - anyone interested? :D


Also... To avoid confusion, yes, TGAF gang kicked the butts out of an entire gang (i.e. the third party that betrayed them earlier) and they are now looking for their leader and the stinkin' little dweeb that played them for fools from the very beginning.


In addition, for those who are curious - this is a two-pager comic done in manga ink and tone format. ;)

Hehe, this so reminds me on OP scene, where Luffy, Zoro, Sanji and Usopp are walking down the road to Arlong Park, to put him and his crew out of commission, in order to save Nami and her town. It's just as awesome. XD

Man it's been a while since I've commented on your work, but I gotta say couple things I really like.

The background you used is a very strong image. I like the detail you put into the buildings on the left as well as the nice chaos in the foreground, not to mention the lightning motif.

Also expressions, expressions, expressions! You just keep improving with time. Particular standouts are Parmir and Fei(my personal fave of the four shots up top) and the pose+expression on Ruby on the reaction shot.

I'm also glad to see we're getting more TGAF strips coming along! Good to see a page or two ever once in a while!

Keep at it Elson!

Some hardcore stuff here, Elson. :D I'm in love with those portraits at the top! Especially Fei's. O_O; >w<;; I had to agree with someone else in that it looks like a similar situation one would see in the Slayers anime. XD I've always kinda felt Ruby was a bit of a Lina Inverse. :giggle: (I don't even know if you know what The Slayers is. XD; But the main heroine in it and Ruby just share that firey, upbeat, sweet/charming, don't-mess-with-me attitude. :D)

But seriously, this piece is just kickass. The use of tones and effects came out great!^^ Animation? Go for it! :D If you can, that is. =) I'm sure it would turn out wonderful!

No I don't know the Slayers anime which is fortunate since I can safely say that I didn't take reference from an official source! XD I got inspired more from ONE PIECE in the Arlong saga. Instead of the 4 guys I have Ruby in my own TGAF crew instead! ;)

Alright- I can't help but love this. :XD: This is just too damn cool.

I love the ferocity in their faces. It totally pulls out on the scene at hand.

I like the attention to the "Aftermath" so to speak as well~

:O Question though- Was it intentional to leave Fei's eye brow blank of tones within the headshot? It feels rather bold having it out as such- but I noticed that the eyes of the others weren't toned either, so I'm assuming it's makin' up for Fei's closed eye.

:D nonetheless I see much improvement here!

:thumbsup: Kudos dude~

Ferocity...

Oooo! Nice word to use there for a description of the mood and feeling of the characters. :D

Yes I left it blank to balance it with the toning. I didn't want things to look too dark on Fei's side. It's part of an experiment and I liked how it turned out.

Cheers for the feedback as always Jenise! ;)

Cool bananas. Dude, save up for a holiday at Singapore. Heck you could join me when I fly back to Singapore from London (some time right after SOS09 event) and spend a whole week there! I'll show you around and such. I'll be getting my relatives to do a whole bunch of stuff like bike riding and tours around a botanic garden etc..

I love this piece! and a true version of Parmir!? you dont see many of those lying around!
and i noticed you seem very fond of feis' new costume. :D

I dont know if this is intentional or not but I also noticed that the main gang seem to look a little on the stiff side
( not to mention a little bit 2 dimensional)
Id say you just need to work on your perspective some more!

But overall I love this piece very much!
keep doing what you always do! :P

2-Dimensional? Interesting. You meant the bottom half right? I get what you mean if you do mean by the bottom half of the entire drawing. The perspective was a little rubbish to be honest but it still looked alright actually! O.O XD

Thanks for the honest feedback! ;)

Treah Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
Youre welcome!


but the entire drawing itself looks fine, especially the buildings and the bad guys in the foreground. If i were to fix anything to make it look more natural, Id concentrate more on the main gangs poses, especially feis' right arm, it looks very disproportioned compared to the rest of the body, Parmir as well, just his legs a little, it looks like hes got a hop in his step, but thats just me :P
