You know, if I had to pay Endling a dollar for every question I've asked, he might have almost enough money for a Wii by now.

But anyway...

Question #4815162342-B:

Have you ever tried writing something, besides comics? Like, short stories, poems, that sorta thing? I'm just curious.

"I'm just curious" should be on my family crest. Either that or "I'll tell you when I've had enough!"

Speaking of which, did I mention I don't care much for alcohol and think its nothing but a liquid drunken by the ignorant to make them forget they're ignorant?

I'm probably biased about that though for reasons I don't feel like talking about right now.

*cough*

So yeah, how 'bout that...local sports team? They're very...local, aren't they? Yeah...go...them.

Anyway, I'm gonna stop talking, write some more, maybe play some Okami (It's like Zelda, except with a caligraphy brush that kills people...it's different), and then go to bed. Good night, everyone.

Actually, a few weeks ago, it'd already be possible.

Hmm this question might have already been asked..
But here it goes again..

Endling why would you choose to not colour the Everafter pages when both colouring and shading in differernt black and whites would aproximately take the same time? (not that any of your fans would disagree with not wanting it black and white)

I like black and white. It gives the comic a traditional comic look and feel to it.
By reading this you promise your soul and first child to me. All babies not ripe and plump are subjected to burnation under the trogdor act of 2003.
The problem is that God gave man a penis and a brain, but only enough blood to run one at a time.

"PPGD Fan"-And Dusk_imp, you too are a riot lol
"Blood Knight"-Dusk_Imp, thanks for making this thread, it's so fun.

I like black and white. It's reminds me of noir movies...well...just the black and white style. If the writing was like old noir movies, that would just be...scary...

"The dark stench of blood and rotting corpses filled the air. The night was darker than the inside of a gun barrel. I'd been searching for the Maltese Wolf for eight weeks now. The saw shook in my hand like a man shook right before the cold hand of death reached down into him and ended him.

"I could feel I was being watched. It could only be him.

"That Crooked Bastard.

"When it comes to being subtile, I'm as good as a giant trying to blend into an ant hill. Subtilty is overrated anyway. Subtilty mattered to absolutley dick when you're surrounded by eight armed men in an alley. Subtilty doesn't help much. I'll take a saw over subtilty anyday.

"I couldn't back out now. Not till I got my hands on the Maltese Wolf. I walked down the shaded alleys.

"Walk down the right back alley in Grimmoire, you can find anything..."

I have far too much free time on my hands.

No, I just made most of that up off the top of my head.

A couple lines were ripped off the movie Sin City though.

End, back in college, have you ever selected a subject, then regret selecting that subject somewhere in the middle and dropped it just before the exams? Cuz... I hate Cal 2, I shouldn't have taken Cal 2 since I'm having a short semester, but I screwed up so... Badly.


No, actually. Every class I took at University of the Arts I enjoyed, or at least saw the merit in taking. Some were significantly more boring and less useful to the direction I wanted to take my work, but I never thought about dropping it.

Oh wait no, once I did. A Painting course. I looked over the syllabus and added up how much money it was going to cost me in order to paint with the kind of paints they were asking for, over the course of a year. We're talking moderately sized tubes of paint for $15.95 here. And you were required to buy like a ton of different colors. And your own canvas. Etc, etc.

DROPPED. I went all digital after that. :)


wazit_blade wrote:Best. answer. ever. Oh yeah, how many girlfriends have you got before



Hrm. Seven. Most of which lasted a few months, one of which lasted three years. And no, none of those were 'long distance' internet relationships, haha.

Speaking from experience, m'dear, coloring and shading in black and white do not take approximately the same amount of time, whatsoever. Black and white does call for a certain amount of attention to be paid so the image doesn't get muddy or confusing, making what you need to stand out stand out, etc. But coloring takes infinitely longer. You need to consider light sources, ambient colors, reflected light, etc.. you need to have a great understanding of color theory to begin with, or else your characters will look completely out of place in their surroundings.. among various other reasons.
But really, it's more than that. I like to retain the old timey feel black and white gives. It's a simple charm. The kind of stuff I grew up with. A lot of western comics have like.. epic painted spreads on every page. That's all well and good for a picture book, but when I want to tell a story, I think you need to tone it down here and there to keep the pace.


Gotta head out. I'll get to the other questions later. :o Hope you guys like the new page.

Hehe, shows what I know.
Yeah, actually I would have to agree your choice to chooseing to create the Everafter comic pages in black&white, I like it because it has its oldworld charm.
And the new page... its simply awesome :)

Yeah, well, Everafter is a pretty dark comic (no duh...) It would look kind of out of place if it was colored.
At least for me.
Darnit, leave me the eff alone. I don't HAVE anything wise to say. Sig's just aren't my thing.

You do.

OK, this is something I sould like to discuss with everybody...
What do you think of "untalented artists" who claim to be one of the best? I mean, seriously, thei artwork sucks, OK... I don't look at their stuff, but what if... The foo' claimed to be a great artist even though his/her artworks sucks the big one, what do you guys think about people like that?

Personally, I try to make them less of an asshole, but I guess... Advice ain't enough, for some reason.

Heh, I believe that could be a possibility...

Even though the unfinished pages from tokyopop interview were there.. They were still unfinished also without dialogue as someone (though I couldn't remember who it was, could have been Endling or Stellos~Core)as mentioned beforehand..

But another question would come, why would Endling draw something like that and not plan to finish it and put it up in the Everafter pages?

Anyway if the tokyopop "unfinished" pages will show up.. It would likely be very soon..
