    Default >> Gate7 [a couple of pages]..

    >>> This is a comic/manga thing Ive been working on.. I know its far from perfect and there is lot of room for improvement here but I think I will get the hang of it as long I keep drawing more pages..
    BTW this are just random pages I picked from the beginning of the first chapter, so they are not in order/related.. No dialog yet, I`ll do that when Im done with the pages..
    Comments and suggestions are welcome..

    My only advice is that you ought to devote the kind of effort you put into your scenery into your characters as well. The kid is stiff and two-dimensional, and the fact that everything surrounding him is so pretty just makes it more distracting.

    Those are fantastic. But yes, Kishi hit it right on the head, the kid needs more detail, because everything else is so gorgeous that it kind of alienates him.

    >>> Thanks a lot for the advice!, I didnt realize about the two-dimensional character problem.. This is due to my laziness because I just stick patterns on their clothes without doing any proper shading work..

    Those really are great. The setting of the backround on the first page along with the last strike originality into pages.

    Very nice. Is this going to be an occult/horror comic?

    I didn't see the originals, but this set looks fantastic, Rod.

    I hope we can expect more along the same vein.

    I didnt see the first ones either but I like the second set a lot. You have really solid cross hatching and I look forward to seeing more.

    You really grasp the sense of story telling and poetic gesture found in manga. It flows harmoniously, the imagery and the content. I feel sometimes your lines appear a little too rigid though.

    Happy. Sad. Schrödinger's cat. Same thing.
