Yes. The /b/tards' attack was so... How should I put it? Furious? He removed them all. It's a pity you can't see them, they provide me the laughs I need.

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..
...that question was for Endling, you know, the guy who actuall knows the answer to it. Seriously, why do you respond if you don't know the answer? And when did you get it in your head intercept questions for Endling.

Endling, what do you use to ink your art?

Haha, and please say something more than "inking pens and stuff" XD

Let me ask you a question, spaz. When did you get it in your head to be a total dick to someone for making a legitimate fucking comment?

Seriously, Christ. Take some consideration for other people's feelings, for Gods sakes. Just because someone makes a comment doesn't give you license to berate them. There was no reason for you to be short with her like that. No reason whatsoever. That was just rude. I think she's entitled to an apology.

There's a thing called manners, dude. It's what tells people how to act like decent human beings. Maybe you need a lesson.

Seriously, if you wouldn't act like such a dick to people in real life, why would you think it's okay to do it on the Internet?

Shit like that burns me up.

Wicked Ali is pretty consistant with a lot of stuff that bugs the living hell out of me so my patience for her has long since worn thin. I was more polite the first time she answered a question I tried to ask Endling. That and other things have piled up, so I'm pretty much past being polite.

Well I can't comment on what other things she might've been doing to annoy you, but as far as answering questions aimed at Mr. End, the fact of the matter is, this is a forum. It's about open discussion. Yeah, she might not have real answers since these are things that only the author of the comic knows. But she never claimed her answers were final, it was just a thought.

Come on, people. Let's just get along.
Well, I believe in God, and he's told me this. Things lying around were left for us to take.

Spaz although I agree with you that wicky has her annoying tendencies and then some, I think you overeacted in your response. She was just making a conclusion based on the information that she already had until endling could answer it.



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?

Because:
1) It could just be a teaser, to feed the hungry fans something while they wait.
2) It could only be an experimental page for that scene.
3) It could just be a junk page that end decided not to use in the comic, but didnt want to throw away.
4) It could actually be an official comic page.
5) It´s a TRAP! Endling wants to trick us into thinking the scenes will go like that but in reality he has planned something different. Belivable because endling does not want the story to be spoiled (remember his overanalizing comment?)

Come on, people. Let's just get along.

Its the internt. Its like a 28 days later sequel in here. :P

I might have said everything in a petulant way(due to general aggravation) but I stand by everything I said in that post. Concluding that "it could be possible" is pointless. There was no original assertion, the information was limited(and not really useful) and the analysis was short-sighted. If you have something concrete or useful to say, by all means say it, but saying you don't know is a pointless waste of time. You aren't getting an apology for what I said. I'll probably get less and less patient with this sort of thing as time goes on. I'm getting sick of having to write paragraphs for you.

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


I grew up wanting to be an author. Used to write a lot for my own behalf. Yeah I did poems as well, during a god awful angsty phase back in eigth grade through high school. I swear, it never seems to occur to anyone that poetry isn't specifically designed to talk about cutting yourself and proclaiming your uniquely bizarre yet indifferent view of the world. But I can't talk. I went through that phase too. Heh.
But anyway, yeah. Short stories were always fun to write. I loved doing them for various classes because I'd always end up being the one to actually get applauded at the end, on account of liking to make my stuff interesting and funny, even when it was about subatomic physics.

Yes, they are a few pages down from where we are currently at.

I think they don't deserve my time. I have little enough energy as it is, wasting it being frustrated over snooty artists not worth their weight in salt is the last way I'd like to spend even five minutes.
I have my own tastes. So does everyone else. And these 'untalented' artists, as you put it, may have their own particular audience they appeal to, for whatever reason. But that's the thing about art. No one style can be appreciated by everyone.
So I'd sit back and let it slide, personally. Let people be blowhards if they want to. They tend to sputter out eventually. Or they don't, and get crazy rich. Haha. Life isn't always sensible at times.
But I'd never try to advise them. That would be like trying to knock down a brick wall with a trout. (Or a herring for that matter.)


Aneri wrote:Endling, what do you use to ink your art?


I haven't inked a single piece of art in like a year and a half. XD

Um. But when I did ink, I used regular old microns. That 'Sakura' brand or whatnot, in like every art supply store n' such. Nowadays people do a lot of digital inking, but that escapes my grasp. I need a better tablet I guess. My work is just a whole lot of heavy pencils messed with in Photoshop. Hence why Everafter is kind of messy looking in terms of its lines. I dunno. I kind of like it.




And hey. HEY. What's with all this fussing?! You kids settle down back there!! I'll stop and turn these forums RIGHT around, and then nobody'll get to see Santa Claus!! Oh I'll DO IT.

Well, they say Polock got really close. Speaking of that matter, do you think art should be elitist or that it should be understandable to everyone?

For example: An artist decides to denounce a social injustice in a 3rd world country. He does the works of art and exibits them. The problem is, the people suffering from that injustice do not understand the meaning of the work and the high, cult people that see the work do understand the meaning but dont do anything about it.

Yeah, short stories are fun. Then again, my opinion is biased since that's kinda my thing. I kinda first realized I seriously wanted to be a writer when we had a creative writing assignment for English that only had to be about two pages and I ended up with like twelve.

Writing stories for school is fun. The first story I wrote in creative writing was really emotional, and it almost made one person cry. I think that says something.

I'm pretty sure you were just joking, but if you were serious, I would like to hear that story about subatomic physics. Heh. I think that's a literary movement no ones explored yet.

I'm glad you could make a lot of your short stories funny. For some reason, I could never write funny stuff that well, unless it was dark comedy, that involved people getting tormented. The closest I ever came to making a really funny story was this one Creative Writing assignment I had where we had to write about what would happen if a kid committed minor acts of vandalism in a town where nothing interesting or bad ever happened, so I wrote the town just freaking out. The kid's laughing his ass off watching this until a SWAT team throw a grenade into his house, knocks down his door, pistol whips him in the jaw, knocking some of his teeth out, and shoots his microwave, because it dinged and the SWAT leader just yelled out "SNIPER!" and they opened fire on it. Police choppers assemble outside. SWATs shove him into a van after pistol whiping him some more for "resisting arrest," which apparently standing still in quiet shock falls under. They shove him in the van, drive off into the middle of the woods, he pisses himself, drag him out...and the whole thing turns out to be a scare tactic the police use repeatedly on any crimes to keep the crime rate down. The police then leave, claiming they have to bring their grenade launchers to a case where a little girl littered in the park, leaving the kid standing there in the woods with yellow stained pants.

...well, I thought it was funny. I think that might make me a bad person. Or at least somewhat f***ed up.

That little interlude didn't have much to do with the current topic, I just felt like sharing that, because I never really got a chance to read that particular story out load in class.

Well, anyway, that was really interesting, Endling. Thanks for sharing.

Added after 40 minutes:

Man, that was long. I really gotta stop doing that. It's weird. I don't talk that much in real life, but when I'm typing, I never seem to shut the fuck up. Damn diarrhea of the word processor.

So anyway, enough yammering from me, time for me to actually be productive.

Endling, I've heard you mention Calling Ground, that entry you got published in Rising Stars of Manga before, but I've never actually heard what it's about. So...what is it about? And which volume of RSoM was it published in, so I know which to get if I buy it?

I thought Sandy Claws was playing poker with Oogie Boogie. Did he spawn as clone or something?
