Woah! Long time, no see, huh? I'd be surprised if I still have any readers left...!
First, I'd like to thank all of you incredibly for being so wonderfully patient and supportive during this time. I've been incredibly busy, but I never stopped thinking about 4KH, and I'm beyond thrilled to have such wonderful readers like you. Thankyou!
That being said, I'm just about to launch myself into a long session of script-writing, and I've got a lot of ideas. So hopefully I won't reach another stale-mate like this for a long while yet.
This page was pretty shitty to draw, though... not sure why but it just seemed to kick my ass. I'm sorry for it looking half-assed, but really, I just had to get it over with!
But really, Jadeite, you're surrounded by hot-looking girls plastering themselves all over you and all you can say is "I feel ill"? Maybe Yumemi wasn't so far off the mark...
zomg I got lucky and checked 4KH today! Woohoo! Great update! And I love how Rei's all "meh" about the artwork. Loved how Grandpa Hino's all "I'm gonna fire 'Jonathan and 'Yamamoto' for the outrage the yaoi comic brought to the temple" and then switched quickly when he saw the fangirls.XD
How's school been, Frizzy? :) I don't think the artwork's horrible, it's still cute, especially Jeddie's face in the last panel.^_^
Hooray for another page! :D Don't worry Frizzy, you'll never get rid of us, no matter how long we have to wait. :) Oh, and I thought it might amuse you to know that I've forced my Sailor-Moon-indifferent husband to read a few pages, and he just about died laughing!
Thanks for updating! And it's ok, we forgive you. It just means that you have a life too, just like the rest of us. Love the artwork on the sexy big-breasted chick wearing the I heart Yaoi shirt, btw. And we know you'll do more amazing work soon!
So much love for this page! I'm so glad to see you back again! Rei is so calm, with her "The ending sucked, but you can't expect too much in this genre" while her two stalker-boytoys are freaking out.
OH MY GOD, is that jewelry store lady in line there? (From episode 1.) If so that's awesome. If not it's still awesome, SPB seems to have brought in a diverse crowd of ladies. Good gravy though, I love this page. XD Very Grandpa Hino of him, too, never miss out on an opportunity to make some cash and meet cute young girls. XD
GeneralWinter - The "zoom lines" (as I call them - that's probably not their name) are done the same way I do any of my screen toning. They're just blank pictures of the lines that I apply to the page where I need them. I don't use PhotoShop, but these <a href="http://shinigaminoakui.deviantart.com/art/Manga-Speedlines-Brush-PS7-69484052&q uot;>brushes</a> seem to use the same pictures as me. Can't tell you how well they'd work, though.
You might be able to find blank images of them by searching for manga screentones, though. I'm sorry that I can't remember where I got my images from.
Aw, the yaoi fangirls get the manga and Jadeite to cuddle... I'm so jealous...
poor Jadeite, if this doesn't help him to get Rei's attention, then I wonder what it'll take...
I'm so happy we get updates again. Something important felt missing in my online routines. And nothing lookes half-ass here. Pretty impressive warm-up, I'd say.
