I'm very happy with how the first two pannels came out, but not so happy with Drake in the last pannel, which is a pity since it's a much larger pannel. curse proportions and their wonky-ness.
Whatever opportunity The villagers had to back out is starting to disapear, why? Drake's starting to enjoy himself.
re teurastaa: is it bad that I enjoyed drawing the blood? hmm, can't choose between the vamps...may I use both? ^^
re Mythee: sorry, more stalling before the fight XP
re rakka981: well he can't loose too badly or the story will be over ^^
re Chaoskris88: he hears them but if the mayor hadn't explained, the villagers probably wouldn't have lisened. They're not soldiers, so they're not prone to blindly obeying orders.
re silversoul: I think Drake's got it under controll (or at least he seems to think so)
re XxIntegralEinxX: yes, but like Drake pointed out, they're untrained civilians, not soldiers. If they don't know why they should hold their ground, their chances of doing so are even smaller.
re TheDemonDragonCat: Drake certainly seems to think so.
re Taslin: I didn't want Fitz to be completly detestable, so I guess I'm playing a bit of a pity card with him. The mayor is an old military fellow, so I wanted that to start comming out. Unfortaunatly it's having the side effect of Drake identifying him as a "worthy" opponent.
re Theflowerchild: but backgrounds take so long T_T no worries, there will be backgrounds in the next one, and I imesnsly enjoyed drawing Fitz. Even thought it freaked out my roomates.
re Angelzora: Well, I wanted him to be speaking authoritativly, but I wasn't sure if I wanted him shouting. The bulk of the mob is just out of frame, and he's been sort of mellow up untill now.
re BatsAreFlyingRats: You're right about the mayor's hair. I guess now that I've started adding highlights to other people's hair, he'll have to get a few more grey strands
re No-Name9: ^^ thanks (Beau likes your avi btw XP)
re Doodlebot: I've managed to map out the fight fully now, and Cassandra's in the clear. Good news for her, unless she was planning on collecting health insurance ^^
I think the backgrounds are fine really. I know what it's like with complicated backgrounds and such. I'm also lazy and take too many cues from manga.
On the other note Drake's definitly starting to have fun. I dare say the others will just have to sit back and watch unless someone manages to sneak through the underbrush and gets by Drake while he's playing.
It's really a credit to your writing that these characters actually think about how they fight instead of rushing in to get picked off one at a time like they do in ... basically every movie. Such a nice change!
hehe not at all I love drawing blood too XD and of course. you can use whichever characters. Theres a vampire bitchy lady but she doesn't come in for a while. I think I posted a sketch of her with lucus in AI somewhere XD
I really like drake in the last panel! it really does look like he's enjoying himself. heehee
I love your comic. And the last panel owns. I wish my drawing was that awesome. *prays to Bahamoot for better drawing skills* *doesn't get better drawing skillz* *stops believing in pheonixes because pheonixes are EVILE!* *throws a rock at Bahamoot for not getting better at drawing* Practice makes perfect my foot! All practice, and I NEVER get any better! *stops believing in clouds*
Ooh! The ancient technique of the "Fighting Circle". Drake is my hero. And what's so specail about The villagers? Why do they get a 'T'? If you don't know what I mean, look at what you typed:
"Whatever opportunity The villagers had to back out is starting to disapear, why? Drake's starting to enjoy himself."
And I'd suggest that in that shot maybe try to do a shot from head hight downwards, the ones where the 'camera' is right above their head, or at least close, so their head is right up close, huge, and the rest of their body kind of shrinks away, or at least use that effect a little.
Oh, and if your roommates are afraid of Fitz like that, or you taking pleasure in it, you need new roommates. Best suggestion: Put them in a wood chipper, hey, it works in Fargo.
