Erm. You are my GOD~!!! >XD Excuse for the extreme expression of mine. I love doing shading and this work WEN-M did is so detail, it's like the HD resolution. Super high resolution quality. >___< That's why I see it.
How your beautiful drawings come to life. your great. I love your scetches almost even more than the finished product. I love to see every scratch of the pensil touching the structure of the paper ^^ You should send more of these
weird angles are cool, and you did really well bringing the characters and the background into a single picture here (it's something I notice you have a bit of trouble with sometimes). The branch in the extreme foreground really helps to give the scene perspective and show the viewer exactly where he's looking at the scene from. I also really like the cracks in the ground and the leaves laying there; they give the ground more personality instead of having it just be something for the characters to stand on. Backgrounds are just as important as the characters!
My only problem with this picture is the bloodspray to Kyler's left; it looks like it's coming from his elbow, rather than his blades, which is where it should be coming from if he killed a soldier with them.
Unless he cut the soldier's throat with his elbow, in which case it's undiluted awesome.
Interesting picture. It makes me think of an RPG where each character is standing on their own square. The squares are integrated into environment very well, so it's not obvious. Probably not intended, but that's how I see it and it's very cool.
Although it is viewed from the top, it still looks pretty awesome!!!
Probably the only weird thing is the sword, which is makes the soldier appear awkward and not working with the perspective. In other words, it is too straight, instead of giving the sword more of an angle, which would help with this perspective.
I love this series so far. Amazing work. I love seeing your work before it's cg'd and uber-polished. Not that that's a bad thing, but there's something so much more visceral about pencil/pen/line work.
I find the bird's eye view intriguing. It says "This is the action" and the next panel would be the after-math. It works.
