I come to lurk

Postby Astral » Fri Oct 27, 2006 2:19 pm

It's comics like this that make the net worth surfing. The detail on those first few pages almost made me cry, the rest had me whining about how I'd 'never be that good' to virtually everyone I know online (much to their endless irritation >.> ). Everything about this comic screams of enormous talent. I love Red's cloak, the way it moves extravagantly yet believably with her every move, its shadowcast aiding her dark schizophrenic appearance on the one hand and portraying some element of innocence on the other. Also, the well thought out paneling and the restraint shown in the lack of color adds too the already bleak atmosphere cast by the author that may be difficult to accomplish with a different styling.
It seems I've found yet another artist to revere and who's talents I can be envious of every time I cast a glance to the comic list. Endling, you have my deepest respect as an artist and writer.

Now if you don't mind, I think I'm going to go back and drool over the current pages for a while longer.
Now you're just being silly.

Welcome to the forums...
I would bet a good sum of money that Endling won't know what you're talking about with some of your analysis stuff but I'm sure he'll enjoy the compliments.

Added after 3 minutes:

I was planning to post without mentioning that I found that to be a pretty creepy, but my personality won't allow that. So yea... that post is kinda creepy/stalker/fanboyish

What I can't get my head around is the insane detail! Its like each pannel could littualry stand as a lone picture rather then a part of a running whole, no details skipped for haste of presentation or ease of production.

I know what you mean. What really gets to me is the amount of emotion that he seems to express from every panel, from every line. And the mood he can set in a page. You have to admire (and worship, XD) something like that...

Hey, can I have a cookie? I love cookies...

I like your avater, too, Astral. The first time I saw it, it reminded me of one of my DnD characters--she'd look kinda like that if she was a furry, instead of plain ol' half-elf...right down to the scythe. Eh, you'd have to see the pic.

Anywho, a belated welcome. :)
I'm not dead! I'm getting better... >.>

I think that's a unanimous vote for cookies then ^_^
Pie is good too, I like Cornish Pasty the best (not strictly a pie but still pastry like and stuff)
Its nice to get such a warm reception, feels like a cuddly false sense of security.
I'm surprised people actually like that avatar. Personally I can't stand the off angle on the scythe and ill proportions on the hand. Maybe I should go back and fix those sometime. Anyway, thanks a lot for the compliments.
