Hahahahaha.. Still Ultimate Droolage.
Just wait until DC comes and drools over it. lol

Honestly though, I didn't think so much text could be put into one pannell without it having it look screwed up.

This page is quite impressive.

Awesome page.

You aren't the first, and you definitely won't be the last.

Brainwashed Kingdom Hearts junkies. ;) You guys gotta let go.

But yah. You know what sucks about it? I don't even really like Kingdom Hearts. (The Disney parts were the best, from what I did play.. all the Square OCs were.. meh.. sorry to the respective fanboy/girls in the audience.)

This has sadly kept me from making the redesign to the sawblade that I really wanted to, adding a handle in the middle. (To make it a lot more 'functional' than it is now, haha. This would pretty much effectively make anyone giving it a scrutinizing look-over thing it was a keyblade ripoff.) So either I take the plunge and just do what I want with it, and damn the consequences, or keep trying to find a different way of adding another handle to avoid KH fans tearing me a new one. And then what? Keep making changes as the series goes on to everything that slightly resembles something else? That's neigh on impossible. The amount of times I've had Red compared to Gaara from Naruto make me realize you can pretty much take anything and compare it to anything else in some fashion.. how else would someone explain that I stole my Chirrel character off of Testament from Guilty Gear.. (Yes it actually happened once. I'm guessing because they both carry SCYTHES. Oooo.)

What do you guys think?

I hate getting compared to other things, especially in the 'you stole that' vein of thinking. (If you've seen 'Rant Doodle 1' on DA you know what I'm talking about.)
But part of me thinks I shouldn't really care if people have that misconception. It sure does take bites out of your integrity though..

Don't forget that no-one can hurt you over the net. They can only scar you emotionally.
If someone accuses you of stealing, go with the old '' I used it as a concept'' routine. ;)

I honestly believe that most people who actually care about the storyline of Everafter and the unique characters will not think it is a big deal if you do something like put a handle in the middle of the saw. It's not like a dedicated fan is gonna see it and be like this...

*Note: Fanboys imitated in this post may appear more articulate than they actually are*

"Hmm...this pages is really cool. Awesome even. It's very detailed and- WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT THE F*** IS THIS? HANDLE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SAW! DAMN YOU CRUEL, ODIOUS FATE! MY ENTIRE CONCEPT OF AWESOMENESS HAS BEEN SPURRED! SPURRED! OBVIOUSLY ANYTHING REMOTELY RESEMBLING A SWORD IS A RIPOFF OF KINGDOM HEARTS! I WISH A THOUSAND CANCERS ON YOUR SOUL, ENDLING! HOW DARE YOU BLATANTLY RIPOFF KINGDOM HEARTS WITH THIS INSIGNIFICANT DETAIL! F*** YOU, ENDLING! MAY YOUR PENIS FALL OFF AND BE EATEN BY A GOPHER! I'M GOING TO GO AND HUG MY KAIRI PLUSHIE BECAUSE ONLY SHE UNDERSTANDS ME! MEGATOKYO IS BETTER ANYWAY!"

Yeah, no reasonable person is going to say stuff like that. Especially not that last part. Seriously, it's totally not a big deal.

So go for it. Don't compromise your vision for just that reason.

*Note again: Please not this entire post comes from someone who actually likes Kingdom Hearts and still does not think this is a ripoff or anything like that.*

Schweet page. The moment I saw the... saw, I was just reminded of certain RPGs in general. It looks ordinary and all, but then BAM, you look at the handle (or hilt, or anywhere around that area) and everything changes. Now it's a kick ass weapon of villainy destruction! See gunblades and the Mani Katti (I think) for details. IMO, Red would a pretty cool RPG character in her current state, swing around her saw and smacking things with her chains (you know, if she wasn't attached to the ground). Well ANYWAYS, though similarities with the Keyblade will inevitably be drawn, I don't think you should let it get to yah Endling. Some people are just accusatory happy (like the whole seven sins thing a while back with Living in Sin) and should be destroyed. Others just like to draw comparisons and guess where one may have gotten the inspiration from. It really does take a bite out of your integrity though. It can certainly piss you off if someone accuses you of stealing something from a source you've never even HEARD of too (blarg, personal experience).

Well, I for one hate keyblades, technically, their efficiency level<0

I'm actually a fan of the KH series, but the video made me laugh a lot regardless.

Oh yeah. It pointed out a whole lot of flaws in most of the Japanese RPGs.

I personally didn't notice the KH thing until reading this, despite being a total fangirl. XD I think having the saw with a handle thing would be cool anyway, who cares if it's slightly KH reminicent?

Well, I'm a nerdy KH fangirl--I admit it--but I wouldn't ever say KH has a copyright on such things. I mean, that idea's been around long before KH was conceptualized, anyway. It's one of those story-telling elements that has passed into the 'public domain' of human consciousness at this point.

And really, the saw's a minor part of the storyline. Do what you want with it, or you'll regret it forever. I know this from experience; I have a story that will never be published because of similarities it bears toward a few anime/game/fantasy concepts (many of which I was completely ignorant of at the time I came up with the story). I can't help but compare it now, and it annoys me that it was ruined for me (they really were cool ideas--but already 'taken'). >.<

Off rant. Great page; the art seems particularly good on this page. plenty of tonal variation, or something. I dunno. It just looks good.
I'm not dead! I'm getting better... >.>
