hello everyone, this is a cover page for chapter 10 of the fifth columnist! :) the tones were done digitally with the 'how to draw manga computones' plug-in, which i've used to tone all my comic pages so far.

one of the challenges of making a manga is to effectively convey the surrounding atmosphere including changes in the weather. i'm enjoying this process a lot though :heart:

so... can anyone guess what snatch is saying to bishop? :XD: (ps: 'snatch' is yet another character from the story, but he hasn't been given that much of a limelight yet. poor guy! :cry:)

thanks for viewing as always! :love:

I love how you introduce those chapters, with the dictionary definition. It`s very original and it makes you think more about the title and how it relates to the story. The page is looking awesome with the rain and the snug restaurant. :)

what about... "i think cloud is more suited to aeris than tifa"? hhehe :XD: so since you support CxA, does that mean you don't like tifa?? just curious :)
sokz-lelei's avatar
lol sounds like something my other self would say lol...damn why didnt I think of that hahaha OHHHHHHHHHHHH I adore Tifa, I just recently played ff7 again on my PC ALL OVER again just to get another feel of the storyline since I completely forgot what it was about before...then again I was 16 when I first played ff7 so there I was immature brat that liked the first theing I saw lol AERIS...But I must admit I was a Tifa fan before Aeris...I guess the whole Aeris died thing made me more of her fan later on XD

hmm, i can understand! with aeris being a 'martyr' i suppose her nobility and kindness show even more! :innocent: so touching, isn't it?? and boy, does her death make things even weirder between cloud and tifa :XD:
sokz-lelei's avatar

Hmmm, let's see...

"I don't believe in tipping..."

Or maybe: "Do you know what Madonna's song, 'Like a Virgin', is really about?"

:laughing: I was just ripping off Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs' which also starts in a diner...
So maybe her reply could be:
"Stop quoting movies, idiot!"

hum lemme think... lol
There's a lot of places selling manga, comic books... but forbiden plantet was the only place were you can find screentones and things like that...I think the first thing I would do back in london, woild be to go there!! I'm pretty sure I can still remember the way!lol
andie5's avatar
come to think of it, i can't remember how to get there either! it's between covent garden and tottenham court road/leicester square... i think? i also remember we had coffee afterwards, those days were so much fun! :D

oh, and should you ever get lost when in london one day, just follow the yaoi scent and it'll get you to forbidden planet eventually!! :XD:

:D :D oh I'm sure of it!!
hum I remember we went past a cinema and then turned somewhere left...But I do remember the cofee we had!
If I go back there, I'll tell you If I was able to find it just with my instincts!!And if you have no news of me well... either I'm dead trying to find this holy grail or I'm still inside of it!
