Here’s the next page/frame. I was planing to do a little more, but I was at the Montreal Comic Con this week end. I’ve had a great time looking at all the artists and vendor tables. I’m very happy that they changed the location of the Montreal Comic Con to the “Palais des Congrès” near China Town. The place is a lot bigger, and getting into the Con wasn’t hard at all. I had to say hello to Boum and Cab in the artist section. I bought new pins and a Doctor Who fan poster to put on the wall in front of my desk. Over all, I had a GREAT time, I need to get my gears into work to get a table there myself next year.
This page was done all on the computer, I didn’t use a piece of paper to make it. I normally do draw some stuff 1st, but I thought I would try something new. I did like it and I might continue to work like this way once in a while.
Thank you for reading my WebComic and thank you for all the comments too!
On the Technical side, there was a new version of Comic Easel.
Here’s a piece of art I’ve been working on and off. I think I’ve just finished it today with a layer of shading. There’s a story that goes with this piece of art, you should see this in chapter 4 or 5. Click on the picture to see the whole thing.
The next page is finish, and will be posted for Monday the 10th.
Thanks for reading my comic.
Here’s today’s update. The page is not done, we will be adding the coloring and tones later. I thought it was important to keep the updates coming even if the page wasn’t 100% finished. I’m introducing evil characters in this page. I hope you will enjoy this chapter. Things are going to start happening for our hero very soon!
On a side note, I’ve started a new website called PetsOfWarcraft (POW). POW is all about the new Pet Battle System (PBS) in the upcoming patch for WoW. I’ll be posting videos and tutorials on a regular basis. I hope that you will enjoy my second internet project too.
Thank you for reading.
Re-Hello for the 2nd part of 2012 Fantasia Festival movie reviews!
I’ve seen two more movies with my friends.
The 3rd movie that I’ve seen was Love Strikes! (モテキ). This movie was directed by Hitoshi Ohne, and is based on a manga by Mitsurō Kubo. It’s a romantic comedy of an Otaku called Yukiyo Fujimoto played by Mirai Moriyama. What I did like the most of this movie was who Moriyama saw the world around him. I one point he starts dancing in what I think to be Akihabara, and is joined with the J-Pop group called Perfume. That scene might also have been the highlight of the movie, because it was very funny to see a man dance with the three J-Pop singers.
An other funny part are the Karaoke moments in the movie. It was really funny to see those scenes. I just wished that the subtitles were put on top for those scenes, because they hid the Karaoke “look”. I was happy to see one of the actors from Afro Tanaka show up in this movie too. That actor was very funny in this movie, and had a bigger role too.
I do wonder if there are a lot of people in Japan using Twitter. I know very few use Facebook, but they do have a “Japanese only” Mixi social media page.
I don’t know if the ending was good because it did felt forced to make a happy ending.
The movie that I was hoping to have lots of fun watching was Blood-C: The Last Dark by Production I.G. and Clamp. The animation was top notch for the movie. The use of computer animation was well integrated with the 2D animation. The story seems to pick off where the anime series ended. Saya is hunting down one man down, and is killing all the monsters in her way. She does make friends with a group of hackers that wants to find the truth on what happening in Japan and stop the government’s control on the Japanese youth. The story wsa very cliche and the writers thought it would be fun to add some light girl/girl love between Saya and one of the female characters she meets in Tokyo.
The music was okay; but nothing memorable.
This isn’t the worst movie I’ve seen this year, but I was expecting a little more from Clamp and Production I.G. They Should have been able to wow me a lot better using magic, demons and swords… Not just a hacker movie with a big monster at the end. I think that the problem with the movie is that is failed in explain that Saya is the last vampire… I think I should watch the Blood+ anime that came out a few years ago. I have a few of the manga on my shelf from my last trip in Japan.
Thanks for reading my blog post about the Fantasia Festival. I can’t wait to see more movies next year. Thank you for making such a great festival to watch tons of different movies.
My next post will be about the Otakuthon 2012.
