FOF- Blood Moon p 6 by frogsfortea FOF- Blood Moon p 6 by frogsfortea

Ugh...this must be the most complex page I've ever made (it's not saying much but it was such a paiiiin!:XD:)!
I swear, Sera didn't look like the girl from “The Ring” when I was working in black and white, then I added the color and... :fear:
Erm, speaking of which, I've read the book and I've discovered that “Sera” is not Kozmotis's daughter name :stare: so erm...I'll write a journal about it because I'd like to hear your opinion on that (but not here, so nobody gets spoilered and not now because it's 4.30 am in Italy! :XD: )
That said I hope you like this page!! :dummy: :heart:

GAHHH, MN JUST UPGRADED TO SUPER SCARY HORROR MOVIE CHILD! :thepuppet: OMG LOOK AT THAT  Oh my GEEERRRSSSHHH! :nuu:

Hey, she does kind of look like the girl from the ring! So she IS a SSHMC (super scary horror movie child, of course)! I was right! You hear that world?! I am a genius!! (Lol, says the girl that had to use spell check to spell "genius"). Lol! Anyway, I like it, though! Kind of adds to the terrifying-ness!

Dang, I was gonna talk about Sera's name, but then I'd be a spoiling spoiler! I refuse! I've been exposed to spoilers lately...never again!!!

This is an awesome picture! Well done!
SPOILERS :
The third and fourth books in the 'Guardians of Childhood' series hurt my heart. Third because Katherine seems to lose any chance of ever remembering her real parents, and fourth because Mother Nature disowns her father and wants nothing to do with him anymore. T.T
I wonder if some of the what Joyce is doing to Pitch might a projection of his own self-loathing or something, because of the loss of his daughter? It's just a total turn from how the story was going.
Reply
:iconfrogsfortea:
frogsfortea Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013

aw :blush: thank you so much!!!I'm so glad you liked it!!!:glomp:

 

SPOILERS CONTINUE!

I feel exactly the same as you do. I got the feeling that something was changed quite suddenly as

really the deal with Katherine's memories and "daddy issues" is completely forgotten....(also Jack was supposed

to be there, but he's not...uhmm maybe some problems with the editors??)

But I too, knowing of Joyce personal story, I can't help but look at Pitch under a different light.

We are talking about the (imho XD) most developed of all the charachter in the book, a dad who lost his daughter

(and whose life has drastically changed because of it....he becomes evil because of his daughter's loss we could say, I suppose).

It's hard to resist the temptation to link it to Joyce. Pitch in the book is both evil and pathetic (his interaction wih his daughter in the

4th book is....!).

So yes all this to say I agree with you and I too see some sel-loathing on Joyce side when it comes to Pitch.

I wonder, what do you think of Pitch supposed "irredeemebilty?"?(er....I mean is he really beyond redemption?XD)

I can't wait for more of this. *This* is the comic I was following and originally wanted to subscribe for (before I lost track of it). Anyway, I like the style you use. It has almost an etched look to it. And despite a few of the comments I like the colors. It flows well from the page before, and in a way the contrast of the colors has a sickly effect (fitting for a nightmare). Not many artists draw the progression into madness, you're one of the few to tackle this. I think you are doing it very well to. I love how you handle Pitch as a character (both now and in the first part. I can't wait to get back to the present though >_<). And I think since this is your comic you can use any name for his daughter you want. After all, most of the fandom called her Seraphina before any official name was given (and I still like it better honestly, a tab more elegant). Seeing the way you pace it though I wonder how long your comic well be. It almost feels like we are looking at 100 more pages. But that would be ok, you have so much story to tell after all ^_^.

:iconfrogsfortea:
frogsfortea Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2013

awww :faint: gosh thank you so, so much!! (I gotta say that after reading your comment

I just feel like I can draw 10 pages in a row....:la: -I don't think I can, but I feel like that!:giggle:)

Hahaha yes, I've to say this new technique came to be very randomly and it looks a bit like etching

(I guess it's because I bucket filled everything and then went and removed part of the "ink":D).

Aw I'm glad you like the colors!!!:la: (heheh, as you said, not everybody did!:XD:) I thought that since

I'm venturing in the realm of madness and nightmare I wasnted to play a bit with distorted visual perception

(because noise I can't use unfortunately!XD). Ahh thank you again!!! I'm very interested in the topic (and since in the

book they didn't delve too much into it, understandly as it's a children's book, I thought I should!:dummy: ).

Hahaha so I guess it will stay Seraphina! (nobody seem to like the new one too!XD).

Hahahhaaha oh  god no, I swear!!!(I really hope too) It won't be that long :rofl: I don't think I could

handle that!!

Really, thank you so much for your words, they really mean a lot to me....and I'm so glad you found again my comic

and even more that you're enjoying it!!!:glomp: :heart:

I love that you type replies as big as mine. Makes me feel less like a babbling weirdo for sending wall-o-texts sometimes (you should see my e-mails).

I think the etching style (I'm just calling it that now) is great, and seems really fitting for flashbacks especially. I think the use of ..... discordant colors is perfect for nightmares and madness. I mean.... you want it to be jarring right? On the subject of noise/sound.... you know I wonder if maybe there's a way you can incorporate it. I mean it would have to be text for some of the sound effects, but hm..... maybe at times you can show some type of distortion for wavy sounds, or jagged edges in specific places for loud/jarring sounds. I'll think about it some more. But I know there are techniques for showing sound visually. And it really would be an interesting addition to your story. Like we've acknowledged, not many tackle this part of the story, so the more.... impact that can be put into it the better.

And hey, if it has to be that long, its just because the story demands it (I swear they have minds of their own). But I would like you to take as long as you need. We'll stick with you for as long as it takes. And I certainly wouldn't mind a comic that long (But I do understand its different when you have to *draw* a comic of such a great length). Anyway, I am glad my comment made you happy. Let me know if you ever just wanna talk sometime. You seem like a blast to talk to.

hahha fear not my dear...you're in good company I'm such a chatterbox...!

Ah, first of all may I really thank you for taking the time of thinking about it
and helping me??It's my first comic and I've so many things to learn all on my own,
(well that's normal!XD) that it's really touching to find someone as nice and insightful as you..
and I'll stop here or I'll get way too sappy!!XD
I agree with you, I thought something with a stark contrast color wise and stark inking
was somehow fitting for the psychological violence of what Koz is going through
(but thing is, I'm generally inclined to all that so I'm neve sure if I'm overdoing it!XD).

heh for the sound, I tried I think in a couple of panels I wrote things like er..."BAM"
"TACK"  :XD: and it was always bad...like a children 1930's comics.. :facepalm: I'm learning there
is an art in lettering (one which I'm spectacularly crap at!:rofl:) so there must a way of making
it a bit less conspiquos..
Your advice is really interesting and I'll be sure to try it (as it is next page is in need
of some sound...:la: your timing couldn't be more perfect!!!:D).
Heheh the thing is that sound/silence are going to play quite an important part in this chappie...
oh gosh...I really hope I don't screw it!!!:fear:

Hahahaha I hope I don't bore you, though!!I told you I'm a blabbering chatterbox and yes they
have a mind of their own!!!(It's my first try at storytelling too and I was so surprised that many
things I've hear on stories which I thought were clichs turned out to be..er..true.._won't spoiler you
but there's one charachter I had no meant to almost use at all who...took over so much!!:stare:
complitely uninvited, how rude!!:shakefist: ).
Aww dear...I can't tell you how reassuring it is to hear you say that!!(it's my lack of self confidence,
but as soon as people started asking how long was it going to be.... :XD: )
Thank you, really!!I'll do my utter best to keep you entertained!!!!:la:
Of course I'd love to talk to you, you've been awesome to me!!!:glomp:

 

ps- HA-HA I think mine is longer!!!:dummy: XD

:iconookamirei:
Ookamirei Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2013
*sticks out tongue* oh sure, say yours is longer. You're the artist, its your page, it makes sense its longer *fake-pouts*.

Anyway, I am so glad some of the things I said were helpful. I love helping out artists and authors if I can. Sadly, I myself am a storyteller not a writer. And while it sounds similar its very different in practice. So I have a lot of problems getting my own stories written. But that's a separate thing. As for more ideas on sound.... I think we should talk some other way. One reason I don't write more here is its still a reply to an image, and its public. It feels weird critiquing in a public setting like this. If you want we can talk through e-mail or Skype. Send me a note on here and I will tell you my online contact stuff. I just think I would be a lot bigger help in a more.... private environment. 'Cause if I give lame advice or have to change my mind on a method its odd in public. I like to brainstorm with just the creator of something. Also I don't want people to think I am being overly critical. Not everyone understands even when its constructive. I do want to talk more. Both to help with your comic and just for fun. And hey, maybe you can give me some advice for writing my fanfics. You never know. Like I said, shoot me a note and we can talk more fluidly.

Yes, this is much better! WAY less contrast with the lines vs. shading. Though, the yellow was a touch bright for the more sinister tone, in my humble opinion.;)

Yay, this was also pretty quick!

And boo book-verse! Screw her canon name, Seraphina is more canon than Emily Jane, anyways!

hahah thank you so much dear (I tried to blend it a bit more after your comment,
but I still had to- try to - be consisten with the previous page style! XD)
hehehhe I didn't blur the background texture this time, but I wanted to
give a starker contrast and a bit violent too to give it a nightmarish quality (don't know if I  succeded :giggle:)
hahahha was it?? :dummy: It was really tricky to organize graphically this one (the panels being for once
the most difficult part!!XD)
hahahha yeahhh I guess I'll really stick to the old name and screw it with canon!!:XD:

Haha, I understand wanting consistency!

And I see what you wanted to do with the background color, though the shade of yellow may have been a bit too bright for the more somber tone the text set. But that's really it for this page.

And yes, I will always call her Seraphina. Screw canon, Sera is more canon than Emily Jane will ever be!

I'm doing fairly well aside from my health taking a general downturn for the last three weeks or so. Being sick absolutely sucks especially when it isn't a definite cold or flu. Just the symptoms of both minus actually being sick enough to hurl. A fever every week and then, a day of rest to break it then back to work. As for the reply it's fine. I'm nothing if not patient remember? 

As for the name I was sure her name was Seraphina Pitchner. Sera sounds like a pretty reasonable name for a father to affectionately call his daughter.

Oh no, I'm really sorry to hear that... :(
I was sick too but lickily it was the regular flu thing (6 days of high fever and
coughing but then I was fine). This really sucks!
hahah I remember, thank you for that!!!:glomp:
Heheh I thought it was reasonbale that having a fairly long name he'd have
a shortned affectionate way of calling her!^^ (though my own dad for example
always call my brother and me by out full name, and my brother's one is as long as
Sera...I find it weird..especially as children, when my brother was doing something stupid, which meant often,
my father would take all his sweet time to call him by his full name "Fe-de-ri-co stop beating you sister"
By the time he called him I was a bloody pulp already!:XD:
