20th Nov 2021, 12:00 PM Alternate version of that one panel:


On another note—I don’t know that much about perspective, or foreshortening, but it can be fun to play around with!


20th Nov 2021, 12:07 PM I think you did a pretty solid job with the perspective on that last panel, for the record.

Also, he can nettle her all he wants, but after the way she managed to clock him that one time, I highly doubt he lets his guard down around her now. I'm betting that block wasn't as effortless as he's making it out to be.

Still probably a good thing. He should be more careful and she has to learn not to telegraph her moves in a real fight.
20th Nov 2021, 12:13 PM Yass, thank you!!

Yeah you’re probably right—that would be the smart way to respond anyway (^^)b
20th Nov 2021, 12:12 PM I see you liked that shot of Kat so much that you put it at the top of the page.
20th Nov 2021, 12:14 PM I was bored with the same avatar for so long, it’s just a placeholder one until I make a new official one…if I do, that is XD
20th Nov 2021, 1:24 PM The pose on the last panel is excellent! Great dynamic poses :D
20th Nov 2021, 6:10 PM Thank you!! ╰(✧∇✧)╯
20th Nov 2021, 1:57 PM It's finally here :D I've been anticipating that bottom panel ever since I saw it in the W.I.P. thread. It looks really cool!
20th Nov 2021, 6:11 PM That’s so sweet that you were anticipating it! (*^^*) I’m so glad you get to see it now
20th Nov 2021, 2:04 PM Dude.....looking at this page in particular just makes me think, you've improved so much since the start of this comic (which wasn't even that long ago!). Like, wowza. And the bottom panel especially! The camera angle, the poses, the foreshortening, the shading, ((the toes! how do you manage to draw toes?? they're so hard to draw x'DD)), the hair movement, the way you tilted the background... it's all so good yo

though.... i imagine Kat is about to get sent flying on the next page x'D
20th Nov 2021, 6:15 PM That’s so encouraging, thank you! <33

As for how..? I had a good reference I guess. I definitely would not be able to do such detailed shading without those 3D models in posing/ref apps, same with a lot of poses in general. I’m really happy they’re accessible!

Ahaha you are good (◎_◎;)
20th Nov 2021, 2:30 PM I'll let the experts (HeSerpenty and Kat) critique your artwork, although I think the last panel came out great too....
I'm more impressed with the alt-text for the first panel in the a/n.... she really needs a manicure! (snicker).
seriously, great page
20th Nov 2021, 6:19 PM Haha no worries! And thanks <3

Haha I love the way you interpret it!! I’d love to see Kairo in full sass mode as a designer or something, like: Ew get back in there and change, you look absolutely HIDEOUS.…I can’t even look at you right now!!

Much appreciated man d(-_☆)
20th Nov 2021, 10:45 PM Kairo should be thankful Kat didn't kick with the metal leg.
20th Nov 2021, 11:04 PM that would sure be ouchie

I feel like that leg would be better for balancing than kicking? She can’t feel with it so I usually think of it as her less dominant leg.
21st Nov 2021, 12:15 AM If I were to take a gander, my guess is Kat telegraphs her attacks a lot.
21st Nov 2021, 9:11 AM If by telegraph you mean: to communicate a message or impression to someone, or make it clear what you are going to do, often by the way you act: then I’d imagine she has difficulty doing otherwise. She’s not exactly subtle! ;)
22nd Nov 2021, 10:48 AM I imagine in this age and time, sending actual telegraphs doesn't come intuitively to most either.
22nd Nov 2021, 4:31 PM Haha nope
23rd Nov 2021, 6:08 PM I didn't even think about that, but she TOTALLY is one of those people who make a weird face right before punching. :D
23rd Nov 2021, 8:41 PM Oh yeah! Definitely one of those “wears her heart on her sleeve” types. It doesn’t take long to get to know her. What you see is pretty much what you get—and anything else, she’ll likely just tell you at some point! X’D ah the simplicity. I love people like her.
22nd Nov 2021, 11:23 PM You're getting more dynamic with the perspective and angles, keep it comin'! You even got Sun's l'il toe curls, lol.
23rd Nov 2021, 1:25 PM Thanks so much bud!! Haha I’ll definitely keep it comin’ however I can ;3
23rd Nov 2021, 12:58 PM so this is where the new avatar comes from! I like Kat's expression in the second panel...
23rd Nov 2021, 1:26 PM Thank you! Yeah it’s just until I draw some new promotional banners and such, I feel like that’s a bit overdue but we’ll see when I have time.

Thanks, I like it too…I think she’s taking all his comments too personally, but even saying that—I know I would have a hard time not doing the same if I was in her position. Emotions are hard yo.
30th Nov 2021, 3:36 PM Translation, "Git gud."
30th Nov 2021, 4:33 PM Pretty much! Not exactly helpful for her to hear o - o
6th Dec 2021, 2:48 PM Dat alternate panel..."Ew. Just Ew" LOL!

Really great perspective there! Kat's form looks great , guess from what Kairo's saying she's just gotta pick up the speed and timing :o

6th Dec 2021, 4:46 PM Haha thanks ;3

Yeah! He should really specify though. I think he’s a tad grumpy XD
11th Jan 2022, 8:47 AM "Do Bettter" is probably the most efficient pep talks. XD
11th Jan 2022, 11:39 AM either efficient or lazy XD
11th Jan 2022, 1:56 PM True! Efficient doesn't always mean quality!
