Google Cockney Rhyming Slang. I think there was a real silly database floating around with "translations"

My favorite is the insult Berk. Short for Berkeley Hunt, which rhymes with... well you figure it out.

Thanks for all the comments, dudes! I'm working on the accent~ I appreciate any and all of the input you guys can give. <3  Also, I am very curious about this "rhyming slang" thing. Have any specific examples, Kuro?

Thanks for the clarification as well. :) Didn't see that the first (and shamefully, the second..) time

Yeah, absolutely! You've got all the time in the world now to finish those pages for a Beyond Battle.

Soda: Yeah, so...I'm sorry everybody.

A lot of shit happened in the past two and a half weeks that just halted everything i'd been working on. Sucks, too, because i had 10 sketched pages and was really excited about this story. I'm so disappointed in myself.

Delya, your comic is fucking amazing. You did such a great job with all of it! It'll be interesting drawing Emmelia with short hair...that is, whenever i don't feel crappy about this mess i got myself in.

you should finish and submit as a beyond battle

Looked nice, would've looked better with more love devoted to backgrounds.
Typically, I really like phonetic text for accents because you can have some real fun with it. I didn't find it at all confusing but I don't think this one was thought out well enough just yet. Like it seems as though you don't have a clear enough idea in your head, opting for our default idea of a British accent when Britain's got like 40 different sounding dialects. And it kind of comes off like an actor doing a bad impression of an accent. To really sell it you kind of have to go above & beyond the "Find & Replace" method of just turning What's to Wot's & Hello's to Allo's. Especially since it seems like you're trying to establish your character as a charmer. Whereas a lot of times we can be cut & dry with our sentence structure here, sometimes you'll find people elsewhere articulate things a bit differently or cling to certain expressions more than others. As a shitty example, "This isn't very lady-like" could turn into something like "Not finding this behavior to be quite lady-like" with whatever kinds of affectations done to the text for the sake of accent. There's a verbosity missing to it. I say listen to more examples for reference.
And shit, if he is cockney, it's a real fun excuse to bust out the rhyming slang.

I was going to give him giant gorilla hands, something that would force him to use abilities other than charm for his socially unaccepted hobby, because Frank is a horrible man with complicated ideas. LOL.

Ah well, at least you still got to see the sketch pages.

Awww, man your comic looked SO TIGHT. ;__; Even in it's unfinished state. I'm still super curious to know what Jimmy's new appendage would have been!

I uploaded the sketches to my Scrapbook on deviantART, so you can still take a peek at what i had there: http://nethouroboros.deviantart.com/art/Frank-and-Emmelia-VS-Jimmy-217046940

Hats: His accent is... well, generic London- perhaps cockney?? Honestly, I'm still working on it, so I'm sorry if it comes off as confusing. XD; Also I wrote all the dialogue at 3:00 am. which could explain how bad it is ahaha.

ROFL: You are way too nice, bro. Thanks a ton, I'm really glad you enjoyed it and that Jimmy's character still managed to read clearly. He is supposed to have a cute/charming side that I was trying to show in this battle. This whole thing was an experiment for me. I find the style fit's Jimmy, so I'll keep working on it (and my backgrounds).

Pyras: He cut her hair. :U

Perca: Naw, the dialogue is kinda hard to read. XD; Sorry! Thanks so much, though~ <3

Nethour: Aww, man. :C Well, I'd be lying if I said I didn't half expect this- but I hoped against it haha. I really hope you're doin' well and nothing serious kept you from your battle!

PyrasTerran: Great colors, Delya, it really looks like a finished product :)

But wait, what/where's the scar?
Quote

The haircut. I think it was the haircut (please someone correct me if I'm mistaken).

Damn those pages are awesome, and I can't stop reading them over and over. Thank you for this, Delya. Great job on the pacing, coloring and layout. I just got lost on some speeches, but that's because my english is not good enough to pick accents... I managed to get what he was saying by reading more than once, so it wasn't a big deal.

Awesome, I say.... awesome!

Give this man a job.

Nethouroboros: Ahh, that's too bad! I was really looking forward to this. Well, better luck next time. I hope to see anything you DID make uploaded.

Delya: I liked this a lot. I know you had a lotta work to work on, so the fact you made this is stupendous.

The tone and style of the comic was very striking and pleasing. I liked the constant silhouette usages and I think it really made the comic look distinct. The near monochrome was a good choice instead of full color here. You did a good job capturing Emmelia I think and it shows Jimmy being more charming than his intro pages would have initially shown.

I liked that there wasn't anything really more to it than that accidental dance and leaving, that made it all the more amusing since Jimmy didn't want to bother with it and left (although maybe that's your time there. It still works.) I'm sure a lot of people was expecting some ridiculously dark fight from both sides of this, but I like that it's more cute (maybe a touch of sinister to it) than anything.

I guess if there's any criticism to be given, I think the backgrounds could have been more developed. To fit with the mood, I think there could have been other sort of silhouetted objects in the background, but this lack of backgrounds didn't really ruin it for me, since your people are expressive enough to carry the action and story on their own, even in a dark space like this one took place.

You did a really good comic here even with the time problems you were suffering from! I think Jimmy's a fun character and I can't wait to see you do something new with him soon!

Del: I love it! But I'm struggling to work out Jimmy's accent, is he a London cockney? Sometimes I can't fully understand what he's trying to say - and wicked style and limited colours!

That prediction may land on me, then ahaha. We'll see. I'm gonna be a couple hours late at least, but I'll upload before the night is through. Just had a rough week or so.

I'll have to take Frank and Emmelia off of the list of people who retired after a taste of the Boek, but I'm crazy excited for this. Two of my favorite Void artists (with dramatically different styles, no less) coming to clash in a scar match. Nasty.

Good luck, you two. Knock 'em dead!
