Koden Chapter 1 Page 1 by RoninsUltramix Koden Chapter 1 Page 1 by RoninsUltramix
WOOOOO!!!!! Finally finished page 1! It took me 2 weeks of my spare time. Had a lot of help from the little tutorial that *Omar-Dogan gave me, he's a really wonderful guy. Learned a bit more toning wise and some more smudge tool control. Also noticeable are the color scheme i used this time and a more dynamic panelling. But still absent is my ability to make cleaner pencil work. So that i will work on starting in page 2.

Special Thanks

Colour me a latecomer... wow, interesting first page up... and jeez, no wonder it took you two weeks... the amount of detail and shading and colour schemeing... I'm very very impressed, art technics wise. I really commend you and your team for working so hard on this saga. The sentencing does read a little awkward but I won't press upon it (since one has already done so and quite well detailed at that. :nod:). We all start from somewhere, neh? I'm gunna have to see how it all turns out... for sure....

Truly great beginning. Really interesting and your drawing style is amazing.
The second frame is kinda amusing, because the characters look so short, a bit chibi like.
I'll be waiting for more.

Lol, talking about grammar issues, I meant "world of difference" not "world of different" =P There were a few other typos, but whatever, I don't usually write so much in a comment. :)

This is great! The art is beautiful, but as an English tutor I couldn't help but notice that you have some sentence errors. The first like was awkward and particularly hard to read, and as we all know, the first line is the most important line to a story. ;)

Here's the problems I caught:

You wrote: "The way he uses his leverage is different on the way you use it. He uses most of the momentum from his spin to give him more thrust to the tip of his katana."

Should be: "The way he uses his leverage is different than the way you use it. He uses most of the momentum from his spin to give more thrust to the tip of his katana."

You wrote: "I haven't figured out how to get near such an effective technique much more if it is used by Oma."

Should be: "I haven't figured out how to get near such an effective technique, much more if it is used by Oma." (This line in an of itself doesn't really make sense to me - "much more"? Do you mean that the technique is much more effective when used by Oma? Because then you might want to say "especially when it is used by Oma." "Much more" just sounds awkward.)

You wrote: "And even if you managed to get close to him, he is equally adept at using his right hand like the left. Attacks will be blocked easily."

You switch verb tense here like crazy. ;) Should be (depending on what tense you want), "And even if you manage to get close to him, he is equally adept at using his right hand like the left. Attacks ("are" or "would be") blocked easily."

I read in your credits that some other people are working on writing the script and whatnot. You might want to talk to them about their grammar skills; everything is coherent, but the tiny changes make a world of different. :)

Again, excellent work, you truly deserve the DD! :highfive:

wow that is one of the longest comments i have ever had! About our team not writing well, i still believe in giving them the chance to flourish, they maybe young now but i know that we all did start at humble beginnings. I view this as our reminder on how we started and would leave it unchanged for the sake of seeing how far we have and will improve. Thank you so much for the comment and rest assured they will consider these suggestions and comments in mind.
