i'd like to,  but i thought the deadline was june 1st?

Can you just do this for Pulpo? Like spiffy it up and stuff since obviously it fits within Pulpo 5's theme.

wow! thanks everyone, & thank you very much, toast! this story was one i had intended on doing for pulpo originally & at first thought i might just be able to make it, but it just didn't pan out timewise between other work i had going on & my dayjob. still, i'd really like to! so i might end up holding you to those offers sometime in the near future! thanks very much.

and thanks for everyone who took the time to comment or vote or just read. hope you'll enjoy the finale!

I didn't comment on the first part at all, but I really enjoy what you have been able to accomplish with this so far.  I was quickly hooked by the characters and you're making it look simple to effectively mix depth, intrigue, action, and comedy.  I very much want to see you submit for Pulpo or else come talk to Galvo or I about doing a book of your own.

FINALLY. got my computer back & it's kind of in working form. it at least works well enough.

anyway, thanks a lot citarra & squid! yes the explosive bits i went crazy on details & definitely should have used some more line variation. i was hoping that at least the first time around, the chain would help act as an indicator as to what had just happened, but yeah it's not as clear as it could be. and i understand & agree with you about page 5 squid. the monster could have used a lot more love in that sequence. at that point i was nearing the home stretch for this & really should have gone back but i didn't. that's partly what i meant when i said i felt like i shanked it, back when i uploaded. thanks for keeping me honest haha

AND NO! it's not intentionally supposed to look like finnegan. i opted for the gap in the teeth as a way to make the design a little less generic. you know, something to make hime more disinct as a character. but i totally forgot finnegan sported the same deal. fuck. sorry, fence.

anyway, thanks guys!

Oh, I actually didn't care for page 5... I like the idea, but the layout or the artwork seems weak... maybe if you strengthened the lines on the sea monster as he dives down it would help, because he looks really weak compared to the rest of the artwork.

But I do like that the sound the mines make when they explode is "Boof".

And is Mishka's friend supposed to look like Finnegan? :D

First I gotta say, love your dragon/sea serpent monster!  When she stabbed him in the head and nothing happened, oh man I felt the 'oh shit' moment well.

Overall I like your style, very detailed, very clean, very nice. I'd LOVE to see this colored.  I like how you used the panels and yes page 5 was a good thing ;p   I had only two problems with this piece over all... There were two panels I didn't understand till I zoomed the page in on my browser, turns out they were the same thing, on page one and five they were the panels were the bombs were exploding. I just couldn't tell what that was other than a bunch of lines at first.  If it had been in color I am sure I would have understood it, or if there was a variation in line thickness to show the bomb versus the explosion that would have worked too.  Good job! and... please color it ;D

thanks for the feedback guys!

i had been anticipating coloring this, in which case, i left that third page pretty bare anticipating going nuts & doing the speedlines with line tool & stuff. but i couldn't get onto a computer until late sunday night, pretty much leaving me only enough time to scan & fix some of the more glaring errors. but leaving the page bare made it feel pretty empty. i'm not entirely happy with the result on there but it seemed slightly better than the alternative of just leaving all that space blank. yeah, i definitely should have done it the old fashioned way. the way i work, i'd probably still be doing it now, but it would have fit a lot better. and i gave the text there that noisy kind of feel to make it seem a bit more primal & angry but i don't think i pushed it far enough.

but good news: i get my computer back today after work. so hopefully, if i make it into the next round, i shouldn't have any of those kinds of headaches when it comes to color & upload. and if i don't make it, i'm still looking to finish anyway & then go back & make more consistent colors throughout.

I'm glad people are digging pg5; wasn't sure how well that one was going to go over. i liked the idea but as i worked on it, it seemed like it felt more & more removed, & like i glazed over a lot of action on one page. the whole focus with this series has been storytelling. admittedly, the story isn't that strong but i was just trying to work on presenting something along those lines in an interesting way.

at any rate, thanks a lot guys! i really appreciate it!

good job homie ;)

# 13   Posted: Jun 9 2009, 09:14 AM
I have to say i enjoyed the 5th page, i thought it was really unique with the way you drew the overal shot of what was going on and the zoom in shots of what was happening at each scene.

# 12   Posted: Jun 9 2009, 12:28 AM
Your inks were looking very lovely here dude, I loved all the little details on the monster especially. A little line variation would have helped separate the foreground from the background and helped prevent things from becoming cluttered. It may have helped to do the speedlines traditionally on the third page because the random grey  toning didn't fit as well with the mostly black and white comic. While story wise this was nothing ground breaking, it was pretty entertaining.

# 11   Posted: Jun 8 2009, 02:17 PM
Great pages. Nice clear action, I can follow along really easy. I take it these are not complete pages? There are a few wonky anatomy issues and the text on the 3rd page is really distracting. Overall, this is pro work in the making. Keep drawingg, don't stop!!  

# 10   Posted: Jun 8 2009, 11:43 AM
Your details are flawless in execution and your lines work well. It may just be my style but I would've liked to have seen more depth in your lines, but you said before that you had planed to color it, in which heavy lines would've not worked very well. Very cool. I could follow it although I have no idea what's going on XD Extremely entertaining and fun to look at. Albeit I do agree with William_Duel, page 3 is not one of the stronger ones. Overall good show :D I'd vote if the site would let me XD 9.5

Your linework is very strong and I like it lots. Although in a way, I kinda like the blue tinges here and there, almost seems intentional except for when it's very obviously a blue line (like on page 3).  I have to admit I like page 3 the least.  It stands out awkwardly amongst the rest for me.  But again, the drawings are great.

I meant "bodily" expressions....not "bosily" :p

You had really great facial and bosily expressions here, and your anatomy was generally pretty good. The scene with the dragon's trail of motion was really well done. Could have benefitted from some shades or colors, but I like the clean lines too. Very detailed backgrounds.
Overall, quite entertaining - I liked the cliffhanger!

# 6   Posted: Jun 7 2009, 11:46 PM
and sorry guys. i feel like i started off okay but shanked it towards the end. and i wasn't able to procure a computer long enough to get any coloring done. but i hope it still works for you guys! thanks for supporting this far.
