yayness for drake's awesomeness! .... Dear god, he looks like the love-child of Light and Alucard. Or just the product of too much Hellsing and Death Note. Which isn't a bad thing.
I also like the knight's expression in the third to last panel.
Where's Joan? Oh, I see Joan! She's over there! *points* .... yeah, I'm kinda tired too...
For some reason I'm still not used to seeing Drake with a tail... I don't know why...
Yay! Drake loks awesome again! Happiness! I think the wings look really cool and the glow is just plain awesome. And is it just me or does the Knight have a Shinu stache? Shinu's the kid in my grade. Also the Knight is very 2-d. It mkaes me kind of sad that you could have done so much better with him. Maybe you just don't have enough practice with him or just don't care 'cuz hes gunna DIE! And the second to last panel the Knight looks like hes just shat in his pants. Too bad with the whole takes-three-hours-to-take them off thing. Doesn't matter though, soon enough he won't be able to care, with the sword sticking through his chest and all. But yes, you are getting very good at drawing Drake and Joan, Very Very good.
P.S. Taking bets on how long the knight lasts! Step on up and place your bets!
alright, I admit it, I finalised Drake's final design while in Japan and reading massive quanitities of Death Note. I kinda stole the way they draw Light's hair
you read Terry Pratchet and Death Note? amesomeness. Glad you like the wings
re Butterscotch: ^^
re DARK_Yukari: yeah, drak brown, there is a distinct lack of brown-eyed people in manga/comics
re holyknight: ain't he?
actualy, all mideval pants took ages to take off, so they didn't bother taking them off to go to the bathroom, they just filled them with sawdust and changed them every few days or so.
I think I may start shading the knight in photoshop like I did on the first page that he was in, hatching isn't smooth enough for the armor.
re Gregory Williams: I made the desision to switch to colored eyes after the focus shifted to Joan and Drake, but I did color the eyes in the acorn flashback, they're just small, so the color is hard to see (Kyle's eyes are brown)
re Amiki: I do too, although I am very glad that I don't have to draw them all the time. swords are hard to do because they have lots of lines with gradual curves, so they need to be even, but you can't use a ruler. When I dram actual wings instead of stylised/shadowy ones I add in the hand structure, and elongated fingers are tough for the same reason as the sword.
