If anyone does not read DMFA, the strip is a based off of a few events, namely these:

Merlitz finds a Human

Dan turned into a human, messing with Merlitz
http://www.missmab.com/Comics/Vol_249.php

Merlitz teaming up with Aliyka

I think I did alright assimulating her two characters to my style:

Don't worry, you're not being ignored. Things just tend to move slowly around here, especially when real-life has me tied up. I just got the super-fun news that I've got to work 17 hours tomorrow. Things like that really put a damper on my reviewing time. :-)

Hey, what I've seen looks all right.  You aren't ignored, I just don't tend to say much-- at all.

haha, alrighty man, Sounds good. Good luck with work.

and if anyone wants to see some quick pics of part 1 of my camping trip, I have 25 (lower quality, from my cell phone) Pics at http://www.geocities.com/fesworks/camping.htm

I took some with film too, need to develop them yet, But still these are a good look at 3 different state parks in Minnesota. So if anyone is interested in looking at some nature... :P

And thanks for the comments guys :D



Alrighty. Probably the last comic before I least on Hiatus part 2 (Camping with my Brother for a couple days). Hope that the people saw my DMFA fan strip and liked it. I have no idea if I will make my comic in color... but I may try it a few times and see how I and other like it. Also, I'm unsure if I will be having my animal characters to start wearing clothes, but If you see from the 3rd panel here, that made some changes to make Ernst a bit more Anthromorphic than merely a "giant rat". Since I did originally want it that way.

Comic 21





Perhaps the next thing i'll do is to experiment with this strip in inking and color... to see if I can get some good looking results... we'll see.

This arc is already going to be 20+ strips... possibly 30+.

I'm actually liking the Inked with Grayscale... and the coloring looks MUCH better with the Inked version than merely taking the Original... but still would need to practice a bit more with PS Coloring and Shading.

With Inking, i'm doing better with not over-shading with the pencil, and actually getting simpler shapes and coloring, which was my intent.

So please, Comment away with these different renditions.... Also... though I know what Color Pencil looks like, I'm going to try and Inked + Color Pencil... I'll upload that another time.

But please, I would like your impressions on these styles.

Here is the Inked + Pencil...



can't figure out how to make the color come out more without messing with the Black and whites too much... Still, People have been telling me the Grayscale looks best.
