Hello, everyone and welcome to my youngest solo webcomic project, while I'm doing Population: Zero (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83832) together with Lyinginbedmon, this project will be entirely out of my own feather. So with no further big talk, I'll give you:


Etherblight

Chapter One: The Crow Hunt

Updates irregularly, I'll try to keep it to at least once every 2 weeks.

Looks excellent, I'll probably forget to keep checking it though(accidentally).

Is it meant to be dark? because even though it has some bright colours, it looks very dark.

4 hours straight, if i'm on a roll.

@nameless, Lying
Thanks ^^

@Oregano
It's night so it's dark. Other wise i love to use strong and bright colors.
also, put it in your bookmarks and problem solved.

i said if I'm on a roll. usually if i put it all together it'll be a good 6 to 8 hours. Also i'm not counting in the sketching tobe done beforehand, which takes one and a half or two hours.

Also i think reposing vector-made figures is a really unnerving task.

Well, Remember and Anti-Heroes don't count because they have their own websites now, so the biggest competition is ineligible.

I don't see how you could rank this ahead of Pop: Zero at this point, though.

How true, sadly enough. Although I would have added "blind" (figurative, not literal) to the list.

That's why one should be a gnome! :smalltongue:

Fireworks has absolutely nothing to do with this. After all it's not the program, but the artist who does it. I've ever since the very (pitiful) beginning been using the same program to color with.

[just curious, are you open to c&c regarding artwork in the comic?]

probably because so far, there were no more than two consecutive pages including the same character, plus this was the first page set by day and in an actually nice looking environment.

I love fingerless gloves, arm warmers that cover the palm and all things like that. Unfortunately i dont have enough of them myself. two pairs of gloves, would a fishnet mesh, two pairs of the described arm warmers. and a pair of socks i converted with scissors to become arm warmers.
So yeah, they appear quite often on my characters. Some of the characters yet to appear even have colour patterns on their skin or fur that make it appear like fingerless gloves. I just love the visual effect it creates.
