Hello all,

Okay, yes this is still a flash back scene, and I know I was supposed to keep to the black and white for it, but I was playing around in Manga Studio trying to learn how to color all over again, and somehow ended up with something new for me. And I'll be pickled if I didn't like how this page came out.

So, for your consideration, my new coloring experiment!

I will keep tweaking things, but I'm thinking I might have found my style here.


Over the weekend I headed into downtown Tempe to meet up with some people for a D&D game. We all gathered to play at this place called the Endgame Bar.

It was kinda of cool, loaded with game consoles (a nice mix all the way from the 80s up) and I saw a few stand up coin op machines. I sat down and played a little Donkey Kong Country on a SNES while waiting for the rest of the group to show up.

The game went ok, but the bar got really loud and I started losing my voice trying to let the DM know what my character was doing.

I'm hoping we pick a different location for the next game.

I hope everyone else had a great weekend too.

See you guys Monday.

The throne is sort of a half-baked idea. Im not so sure about dwarven artistry for this world.

Page size is in consideration for future printing, and production time. I really want to get back to twice weekly updates. Smaller pages might mean I can swing it once again.

New style looks good, colors seem to come through more vibrant, even with the muted tones you're using for the flashback.

Im pulling back on the brights and heavy saturation colors to see if I can get a more storybook look.

Still needs some tweaking, but Im getting there I think.

Thanks Louie, I might not be up to professional standards yet, but I do think Im well on my way to presenting the ILLUSION of professional standards. =P
