OMG!what's going on?

ummm, I can't beleive I did this. I've been fustrated with this scene for a long time because of how predicatable it is. I couldn't change the scene without eliminating a major character, so I got the idea of doing this page just to shake you guys up or somthing. I hope someone found this funny, if not you should blame Cerise for not stopping me.

Drake was not hurt (although he would have deserved it for being so arrogant), I got him a stunt double. He is currently napping on the couch.

I also took this opportunity to expirement with backgrounds and speed lines. I'll probably remove this page in a bit, so I felt free to try things without worrying about how they would come out. I know the page is a bit cluttered, and I cut corners when drawing the knight and drake, but I'd appreciate feedback on the backgrounds and mothion effects (what was your favorite, what worked, what didn't, etc).

I'll put the real page up tomorrow.

This will not happen again.

Oh my god, you actually killed Drake. Jesus, I didn't expect you to make it so graphic, but then I remembered smig.

PS if you really want it to be convincing at first glance, don't put 'fake' before pg 63 on the title of the page.

And it's not my fault! I hold no responsibility for the deaths in this comic!

daidaishar, February 25th, 2006, 11:03 pm

there, fixed it, I put "fake pg 63" so it wouldn't get mixed up with the real one when i upload it, but you're right, it shows up too well

hahahaha! DRAKE GETS PWNED!!! (in the knight's dream!)
I like the black and white outline background XD

And his eyes went all dull when he died. Darn you, Daidai, this depresses me!

What doesn't work is the blood spewing out of this mouth in the middle panel of the last 2nd to last row of panels. It's square.

What does work is the two last panels. The penultimate panel looks impactful, like he hit the ground hard, and it makes me want to hug him. The second one is just tragic, and the soft grey-square thingies give it a nice hallelujah-chorus feel.

Holy crap...I just had a heart attack. Not funny. Never do that again. :P I think I wet myself...

Butterscotch, February 26th, 2006, 6:17 am

Ouch! >.<

I like the speed lines. Everything looks like its moving very quickly. I also really like how Drake's eyes get a dimmer yellow in the last panel.

dirtsa, February 26th, 2006, 8:17 am

You just gave me a shock. DON'T ever do that again. *Whimper*

But it's okay if Drake get a little hurt by the knight in the real page, 'cause he's so arrogant. It's like he thinks he's immortal.

Alright, I laughed. XD Who's with me!! Bad and wrong, okay.

ANYWAY. I really liked the effect you created with the graytones and the shattered glass effect in panel three, very dramatic, and Drake's facial expression is terrific. I also found it really awesome when Drake's eyes turned that funny muddy colour in the last panel, talk about ominous. :O The blurry gray effect on the second last panel, I'm not so partial to. Mainly because you also chose to utilize the heavy pen lines, and it gives it a messier look.

It's clear that a lot of thought was put into this. I'm glad we got to see this experiment, it's very insightful.

(I agree with dirtsa. Something probably ought to happen to Drake, just not now and probably not this way. XD Maybe just something slightly humiliating to take him down from his pedestal. Like a pie in the face. I can wish. ;D)

Dai, gosh you scared me... I know that I rediculously gullible, but jeez.
Actually I laughed as soon as I saw it was fake... I do really like the way you dimmed his eyes. It is incredibly dramatic.

chikara, February 26th, 2006, 8:50 pm

WHAT? NONONONONONO! ... Oh wait it's fake? *sweat* Gee, THANKS. Made me feel bad.

Anywhoo, since this is the first time that I've commented, I figure I should say SOMETHING about how good your artwork. Like how kick-ass it is. Because it is kick-ass.

BTW, cool idea about the eyes. If anyone REALLY dies, you should use that.

X Daggers, February 26th, 2006, 10:13 pm

You scared me there for a second! Hehe... Seems like a good page, I didn't see anything badly obvious. The knight's weapon should be going more up and down instead of off to the side in the stabbed panels. But that doesn't really matter, I didn't notice it until I was looking for errors.

Redsweathshirt, February 26th, 2006, 10:39 pm

Yeah, X is right, the weapon looks like its from Paper Mario or something. However the experiments in the Background colors are cool. Dunno, don't have much to say except this came up later then i expected.

Drake getting stabbed by a blunt object made me go:

:D Bahaha..

In a sadistic way. Thanks for adding this little bit in. It really made my night.

flying-angel, November 7th, 2006, 9:00 pm

What!? How did he beat him with a hammer/ax!? No! oh no! what happened!! must keep reading!!!!.... wait a minute... this is fake? AW! your so mean... T-T i cried... jk no i didn't... well maybe...

princessaranel, November 12th, 2006, 11:36 pm

Past my bedtime
It made me chuckle! The look on his face when his sword broke is funny, because...well, he was being too arrogant! Looking on the bright side, at least he died quickly and didn't have to suffer...too much. Bye bye Drake!

Maybe I would have been shocked instead if I hadn't read your comment first! Shocked and impressed at the bold move you made in killing off a main character.

I'm glad that it's just a joke though. Joan would be lost in the middle of nowhere and, of course, all of their delightful bickering would abruptly end. That would be tragic! ;D

crystalgardian, September 13th, 2010, 2:28 am

I keep reading all these comments about how sad the fake was....

I laughed so hard. I almost choked to death. And did I mention I was drinking water? Yeah... I going to go clean my screen now XD

Love how his sword suddenly turns into a pick axe XD
