There is nothing much to be said about this page because it is only the chapter intro page! X3 :D

I do however wish to make something clear about my previous page! X_X;; I was suppose to mention that I had used digital effects on panels two and four! I didn’t actually do all of those effects by hand! ^^; I had the assistance of filters from Adobe Photoshop so I just want to make sure you’re notified of this. ^_~

You can usually tell when the panel is drawn naturally or that it is enhanced for visual effect. =) Thank everyone for your warm comments and enthusiasm for the manga! I’ll keep those pages coming. ^_~

I’m going to work tomorrow first for the whole day, then see what I can do at night. ;) Take care everyone! :D ^__^ *thumbs up*

P.S. Love you lots Bobbi… I’ll always keep my busy these holidays but promise to you not to work a little too hard… :hug: Take good care of mum and dad (and Tippy ! XX3)… Thank you so much for showing me Tippy and your doodles/drawings! They were both cute! :XD: Aww I so wanna cuddle Tippy now… /= ( *chuckle* ^^ See you soon… :smooch: :heart:

P.P.S Next time mum comes on make sure you tell her that at least she can view my ugliness… She won’t be shy then! ^^ :XD: :XD: :XD: *pokes at you* Oh! And I soooo gotta comment on your latest pic of Sonic and Tails!! Mmggraaawww! *crosses fingers hoping that I will comment about it soon* X_X It was so kind of you to do that for Matt… He truly deserved something special of yours… :cuddle:

Well nicely colores and I like the theme in the pic. From a graphic design poimt of view you should maby have had Tails a little clearer in the pic to give th viewer a better indication about the what tails a away is about/who tails is and things like that.

Well as I said the coloring is great and I really like the leafs you get this autum feel to the pic, and since autum is about change and tails away is about change it is a great motive to use (maby I'm over analyising this) Well anyway it is great. I also like thos open spaces you have. The type in the heading is ok (don't know much about type)

Well great pic.

Sonikkitty Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
O.O orange. :XD:

GAH! almost forgot... would it be okay if i had Darky in a comic thingy of mine? just so you know and such... *nod*

leafy. *munch*
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
I actually have this unwritten policy not to have Darkspeeds in fan-comics (even from friends O.O;;...)... I err... Have my personal reasons why and it's all due to the experience I had in the past. :aww:

Is it okay if you could tell me by note what your comic is about first? I'll see if it's alright then to have him in! ^^ So sorry to be asking so much! ;__; Even though it's a kind offer Matt . *bows*
GitaWatarimono Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
thsoe colors are really cool
Lightwind Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Great use of color, it grabs the person's attention. I love the little Tails Away symbol, it represents Tails better than his current symbol on the games... (just two Tails)

As for the person on the page... Is he Duke, Tails, or someone else entirely?

Good job Darkspeeds!
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the comments Lightwind, I'm grateful to hear that you like the symbol of Tail's two tails and the clouds that trademarks Tails Away. ^_~

It's Tails on this page and if you could remember a sketch of him as a Sky Saviour you would recognise it in advance. ^_~
ArcticFreeze14 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Beautiful! ^.^ It's the colors, the colors and overall theme of the page that catches my eye the most! It has such a autumn-like theme to it, I love it oh-so-much. ^-^ You did wonderful on the layout of the page, as well.
That one's Tails, you said? I don't know why, but I really do like the way he looks right there. So..... so........... augh, I can't find the right word for it! x.x Really nice, though, I'll say that much! =3 XP
HondaWhiteFox Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Very nice! I like the use of color on this page. It really makes it stand out from the other pages and lets you know this is the cover page for the chapter.

Also, thanks for correcting my assumption that you hand drew those specific panels on the last page.
Petsuchos-Isis Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha, ^^; I can't help but comment on this chapter intro, too many nice effects! And that's Tails you say?
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed it is Petsuchos-Isis! ^^
Project-Shadow Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
amazing Darkspeeds. The composition is incredible, and I've never seen that leaf brush tool used so effectivly, very well done. :D The "Chapter 2" text looks really cool :D I love that effect :thumbsup: Can't wait to see what you come up with tomorrow :)
Keep it up Darkspeeds! :w00t:

Lilythehedgie Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
cool ^^ I like the chapter page..but I can't wait to read the rest of the excited ^^
hypermegatailsfan Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist Writer
What an awesome intro page! The bright color(one might normally say 'colorS,but this is just orange XD ) is really eye catching,and the backview of Tails is interesting,him wearing such a dynamic outfit(at least in my opnion,he looks so heroic in it!) One can only wonder what adeventure's he'll have this chapter! Great work!
Sonicfan101 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
That's an awesome looking chapter intro page! Great job! ^_^

wow, very cool, i can't wait to see this chapter, with that intro page, it must be amaizing :D
sonicolas Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Is that cloud in form of two tails the logo of the comic? I never noticed that before! XP
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes indeed it is Sonicolas! :) :D Nani? How could you not? *SHOT* :giggle:
hazthehedgehog Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Nice! It looks quite conceptial. Good work.

I like this one, because it's very basic, yet at the same time, brings about a feel of summer, and it makes you think about Tails Away instantly. Good job Elson-san!
BlackBirdo Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nice into page! I espically like the colors! :clap:
MilesTailsPrower-007 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ooh!! I like how you left the little drawing there in sort of a sketchy form ^^

That looks really nice. I sometimes see finished digital art that has slightly sketchy lineart to it, and I always think that looks neat. Your chapter covers seem to have different color themes to them. The other one was blue and white, remember? XD The orange gives off a really nice warm feeling. It's really sunny looking. The little leaf pattern you 'stamped' all over it looks cool, too.

Although the solid digital color gives it a super clean look, the slight sketchiness to the drawing gives it a hand-drawn look (since it WAS hand drawn, hehe) is a nice touch. Good back view of Tails there, and what we can see of his attire looks really cool! ^__^
Fiidchell Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome intro to the 2nd chapter Darkspeeds! I can't wait to see the expression on Tails' face when he finds out where he is.
Lol. :giggle: I'll be waiting for the next one!
LyraVulpictor Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Wow, cool... Only I can't quite make out if it's Duke or Tails that's showing us his back...^^; But no matter. It's so Awesome... (I'm outta words now...)
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
*chuckles* It's actually Tails. :) Duke is going to explain parts of history learnt from childhood and it could be that the Sky Saviour is that very fox he got on board. (which is Tails.. :XD:.. ^_~)

Thanks for pointing that out LyraVulpictor... At least you'll learn that he is as you advanced further into the story. ^_~
Kubata Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Very interesting, I wasn't quite expecting the Sky Saviour to be even mentioned until the last few chapters but this certainly puts a twist on things...
Fantastic effect with the leaves, it makes everything look very serene! :)
Very nice for a chapter intro page ^^
CobaltWinterborn Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
Well, its's a great Intro Page in my opinion. Orange is like my 2nd or 3rd favourite colour :D. (Cobalt is my favourite colour ^^; but you know that already) Well done, buddy.
killer4 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
Wicked i love all these comics u done :D i loe the look of tails mate really cool and the scarf :D wicked hey can i ask a fav can u check out my work and give me some pointers on colouring, shading anything really?????? would be a big help and mean alot but if ur busy i understand as I always seem to be busy myself well hope to hear from ya soon and can't wait to see so much more of this :D keep it up
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
LOL! :XD: From what I've checked on your gallery Killer4 there seems not to be a need for any pointers because you are already quite skilled in your colouring! O_O;;

Dude I don't think I can make any suggestions at the moment because my colouring skills are not as good as yours! :D :giggle: But nevertheless what I can recommend you to do is to explore what tools are available to make your colouring work more efficient. ^_~ Try using shortcuts such as magicwand to highligt areas wear shading needs to be specific or use a marquee to highlight a particular area to focus detail there. (oh gosh what am I saying... You would already now this stuff! :XD:...)

When the time comes I shall see if you need improvement on what you are capable of at the present buddy. ^_~ For now pictures like Beyond the Sun_enlightenment and :FAITH:- take my hand are lookin' good! ;) *thumbs up*

Just keep up the fantastic work mate! :aww:
killer4 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2005
awwwww thank u so much u don't know how much that means to me :hug: i think ur colouring is amazig it really is.
I love the colouring of the pic where only sonic is coloured now thats what i call good colouring and it really means alot 2 me that u think of my work like that :D
Just so u know if i don't always comment its not because i don't want 2 lol its cause i have so little time now but when i do get the chance I try and comment as much as I can :D i just wanted u to know that I really like ur work and its always going on and getting better :D keep it up
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Aww I can understand you time! You need not to comment a lot at all! This is already good enough on it's own. :) Just meet your commitments first before doing anything else! ^_~

And it's my pleasure to give you my compliments. *thumbs up* :aww:
killer4 Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2005
