Ugh...this must be the most complex page I've ever made (it's not saying much but it was such a paiiiin!)!
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...
Erm, speaking of which, I've read the book and I've discovered that “Sera” is not Kozmotis's daughter name 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! )
That said I hope you like this page!!
hahahha oh dear....so sorry about that!!!
(but that's as bad as it gets..the rest should be downhill from here!!)
Ehh so did I .... (I wonder WHERE did it hear it from!!)
Just read the new book and...well...it's not her real name!
aw thank you so much!!!I'm so glad you liked it!!!
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)
alas my dear, you are, and so was I, and everybody else actually....
The new book came out and her real name was revealed...I don't want to spoiler you
so I'll only say it's quite QUITE different from Seraphina...
But I'm going to stick to Seraphina (and say bye bye to canon!)
hahhahhaha oh my ....you made me burst here!!!
hehehhe sorry guys!!!Hope they'll come back!!!!XD
awww 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.... -I don't think I can, but I feel like that!)
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").
Aw I'm glad you like the colors!!! (heheh, as you said, not everybody did!) 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! ).
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 I don't think I could
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!!!
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" and it was always bad...like a children 1930's comics.. I'm learning there
is an art in lettering (one which I'm spectacularly crap at!) 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... your timing couldn't be more perfect!!!).
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!!!
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 clichès 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!!
complitely uninvited, how rude!! ).
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.... )
Thank you, really!!I'll do my utter best to keep you entertained!!!!
Of course I'd love to talk to you, you've been awesome to me!!!
ps- HA-HA I think mine is longer!!! XD
ehhh I long for consistency (but I don't quite manage to achieve it...! one dayyyyyy)
heheh I know I've tacky tastes! (well you remember perhaps the first pages' Yellow?? nothing
can beat THAT tackiness!!)
ahh me too, my dear, me too...it's been settles, this comic will continue
to feature Sera, to hell with Emily Jane!
