Yep, the horse is awesome, doesn't blend in with Drake at all. I really love the 6th pannel, Drake's expression is awesome. Cerise, your sound effects rock! Two things i didn't like though. One is that the first panel looks like he got thrown on a bathroom wall, not the ground. If you could add some depth to the top and make the bottom seem closer, that would help. The other thing is Drake in the last panel. Maybe there is just something wrong with me, as you know there is, but it just seems wrong. Maybe the lack of shading, but, grrr...
I really love this page. My favorite is the row with the horse geting ideas and Drake being confused... he does deserve that for being so confident. "What now?" inndeed.
I approveof the new horse-coloring: it looks velvety and horsey now. Drake is now in proportion to the horse -- applause for you! You just might wanna go back to the first few pages with the horse and color it in the way you're coloring it now.
Butterscotch: that seems to be the consensus, so I'll probably use this way in the future
re Redsweathshirt: the problem with the last pannel probably results from the phenomenon known as "dai was to lazy to do a proper shading job/was distracted by watching a nostalgic star wars trillogy marathon with her freinds while trying to ink" hmm, I think I will blame Vader for drake's poor inking.
re Zheyna: unfortunatly, going back and re-coloring the horse on previous pages would be difficult/impossible because of the hatching I used. layering over the hatching would probably make the horse far too dark and loose its shading and definition, and there's no way I can erase the hatching. prehaps I will go back and re-draw some pages, but due to the sheer length of the story I'v trying to write, I've taken or a sort of "keep trudging ahead and never look back" approach
re Cerise: Leyote gats full credit for drawing the question mark
Ooh, nice shading on the knight and the horse, although I gotta agree on the bathroom wall thing. The cracks in the pavemement work really well. Maybe if you go along that line of thinking and add more imperfections to the stones, like bumps and flecks in them, and they'll look less tile-like.
