Oh No! Jon fans look away quick!
I'm so terrible aren't I. >___< I have to tell you all right now, Atsushi x Daisuke is my favourite coupling. That doesn't mean that my preference will in any way affect what I have going on in the plot or the eventual ending though, so don't worry about it. It's just that after years of these guys being in my head with me, they're like friends or family. ^__^
I hope all of you are enjoying the story so far! Chapter three is coming to a close soon...finally...tanoshimini!
I also love the fact that you didn't do any background toning to the bottom left three panels. I like the fact that its kept clean and simple so the reader just "sees" the motions and can focus on the intense sceen that's playing out.
I can just hear a heart beating beating loudly in the background while looking at those three panels...hand on shoulder...hand on chin...a caressing whisper "Atushi"...*sighs then faints...*
Ed-chan--Oh dear! Are us manga-kas so predictable? LOL!
Golemking--Thank you! I love you for loving it! ^__^
XxIntegralEinxX--Regarding japanese sound effects, I've seen them both in hiragana and katakana in the same comic. I use them interchangeably too...mostly depending on how I want the pages to look. For example, if I want very bold looking sounds, I go for katakana. Other times, if I want a softer feeling, or I simply like the look of the characters more, I'll use hiragana (which I think looks prettier, IMO).
InfiniteReveries--You're always so manic, you know that? LOL! Just teasing sweetie! I kept the transition panels clean of tones for just that reason, so the motion comes across better.
X_x okay...yeah, you just HAD to kill an hope I had in Dai-san being the least bit nice in that last post, didn't you??? I really thought it was slightly sweet...at first.
And er, yeah, sorry for disappearing for a while. I've been busy, and yes I'm still trying to figure out how to explain guys' nipples to you (-__- man, what a weird topic)...although, after doing some research...I think you are not as inaccurate as I originally thought you were...I think it varies from guy to guy and while his nipples in that one picture of tied-up John was somewhat weird, I don't think you are necessarily doing the whole thing wrong. Gomen.
...how can I keep a straight face while talking like pervy kuso????!!!!...-___-...
Hey Korin, no worries! Busy-ness affects all of us.
Guys' nipples...yeah, they do vary a lot...but trust me, I've seen enough of them in real life, up close, to know where they are supposed to be placed. They're different from women's because they're off to the side more.
It's not a pervy topic. Everyone has nipples; it's natural! ^__^
Indeed...that was actually my complaint, they were not low and to the sides enough...but since apparently you have more model than I do...then...I will then leave the drawing of nipples to you! XD o_o;...I mean, I've swam in gym, but I never observed the guys too much...
*kicks* but whhyyy?...why must you, Dai-san?? *kicks Daisuke* Nihonyarou >-<.
(also, I always thought Daisuke had brown hair)
Waii...what about pairing, DaiJon??? Atsushi can be free to find a nice girl! *gets shot*
Ninjarobot--thank you! I worked hard on that panel...the perspective is a bit tricky. ^_~ I missed you too!!
naruko_90--Heehee! I'm sorry, perhaps it'll be Jon next time?
Korin--Yes darlin'...I have access to enough males to model aplenty. ^__^ Just a note, when a guy is really buff and his pecs have a lot of definition, the nipples sit a lot lower. Jon is buff, but he's not total body-builder buff, hence the reason why you may have not felt they were in the right place.
Yes, Daisuke has brown hair...it's hard to do brown when all you have are shades of grey though...^_~
Hmm...yes, Daisuke x Jon would be interesting, wouldn't it! LOL!
What I would have done was picked a good picture that I drew and show you but...anyway, take a look at my art. You ought to be able to find a shirtless guy somewhere there...
About 80% of the stuff is mine so you should be able to identify it pretty quickly. The ink and color pencil or just normal pencil is mine...the sketchier ones with really big eyes are my sister's (but there's only a few of hers). Yah, so tell me what you think
Y'know...I've never stared at shirtless guys much before, even though there are always lots of them when I go swimming...I learned how to draw shirtless guys by reading Rurouni Kenshin XP...
Korin--I checked out your photobucket. If you'd like, please email me through my contact on my Author Page and we can talk more about drawing, etc, okay? It's easier to email than carry on a conversation through this comment section. Thanks!
Haien_Luv--Haaaha! More like Daisuke's too close to Atsushi. ^_~
rakka981--I'm sure lots of people would like to take a swing at Daisuke if they could.
MilkCat--Sorry! Updates are every Tuesday and Friday. Is this your first post? Welcome to Ai, Kanarazu!
