Well, here we are; an inked page, just as promised. I really like the outcome and I think I might keep doing them like this. It's fortuitous that I started on a page that was actually appropriate to be inked; for example, last page was more gag-heavy and probably would've looked weirder being the first inked page.
It takes a little while longer, but in the end, I think it's better to spend a bit of extra time at the beginning, because the results are going to stay that way for pretty much... ever. 4KH takes up a lot of my free time, and at the moment that's not a big deal because I have a lot of it; but next year when I go to university, I'll be more pressed for time. So instead of trying less with 4KH, I'm going to try harder. That way, instead of just churning out sketches, the time I spend on making 'proper' comic pages gives me knowledge + practice I can use when 4KH is over and I move onto comics of my own. I think that would be the most efficient use of my time on 4KH.
In case you were wondering, much like Dimande, he spent the first half of the day looking for a job. Unfortunately, he wasn't as successful. ... How embarrassing. |:
lol @ Nephrite suspiciously knowing when teenage girls go home
Oh... Nephrite. Maybe you should've just gone into the damn store and bought her something instead. |: Girls don't mind if the money was fake, so long as the diamonds are real.
rosesablaze: Yoshiku Usui is a (flaming) fashion designer from episode 140, in SuperS; do you remember, the one where Fisheye ripped off his shirt? He was his model, briefly, and at the end he designed Usagi a wedding dress. Anyway, he seemed fond of shortening his name to 'Yoshiki U' as a sort of label, particularly when displayed on the shirt Usagi forces Mamoru to buy, so that's who he is. He's not real, though.
Neph, you should have gotten a job before Dimande >.> how is Mamoru going to feel! Aside from that, I loved this page. The inked page is wonderful ^^. Now I can't wait to see what Nephrite plans to compliment!
This is actually a great revelation for Neph to come to, although I'm sure once he gets an eyeful of the Sacred Titties, all reason and logic will go out the window and he'll start talking with his dick again.
Now what is he going to compliment her on?
Her ninja asskicking skills?
Nah, I have a feeling it's going to be the titties!!!
Should have just bought her some jewelry, dumbass! And is he double parked? Is Diamond giving him a ticket RIGHT NOW??? XD XD
Also, I failed to mention that I love how he claims he's tried "everything" when in fact he's tried ONE thing, and that's being a creepy perv. I guess he doesn't have much else in his toolbox!
LMAO Nephrite is sooo clueless and we all know unless he figures out something better then complimenting her "talent" he's gonna get the jerk pot again. Man does he have his hands full. BTW I love this page it looks great. Thank you for making this comic!
Thank you. Thank you so much. This page looks fantastic. I don't care how clueless Neph is...I would so totally jump his bone in EVERY panel of this comic. I'm waiting for him to compliment Mako-chan's shoes...or hair....or earrings... Or, quite possibly, her legs. She does have very long legs. I wonder f he'll install a shoe camera first...
I cannot describe the sheer squealishness that came over me when I saw it was a Nephrite comic! >w< Aw, part of me really hopes he can find something non-chauvinistic to say to Makoto, you know, just to throw her off her guard.
I am actually dreading what he is planning on saying... And worse, this line: "Maybe she won't b so violent in public" leads me to believe that something huge and embarrassing is going to happen. And does he not realise how creepy he looks hanging around a school and waiting for a busty student?!
He's so useless, I like how he says 'everything I've tried' like he's done so very much.
I'm really liking the ink, it's a much cleaner look, definitely worth the wait.
Remember when Ulla dance?
"Ulla dance again!". *ahem*
Unfortunately for Neph, I don't see this fantasy coming true for him any time soon... (perhaps an investment into protective sportswear might do him good before his next plan!)
That being said, nice job on the line art. Definitely digging the addition of a more fleshed-out background in the panels. Can't go wrong with a little bit of fan-service for the gentlemen, either. =^^=
Forgot to mention: it would be really funny if Neph went up to Makoto and said, in a suave voice, "I love your... talent."XD I can't wait to see what happens next. Methinks the return of the jerk pot is looming on the horizon.
