newbie comic - Antivirus by chopstickmadness newbie comic - Antivirus by chopstickmadness
a comic that i really get serious and try to complete it for an local comic competition... because the gray tone i added in photoshop so they didnt show the complete version in the final...

this is a really newbie [even now i'm still a newbie... lol]comic, heavily influence + copy [Blame!]... i just wanna try out + learn to draw like Nihei Tsutomu... but as you can see i fail lol

it is a good experience drawing this comic and i stilll got a lot more to learn though :]

I just saw this when I went to the home page, and Thought it looked amazing. I love how throughout the whole thing, The character just has a facial expression like, "Meh"

I noticed that, and I just had to tell you, that I think your work here is incredible.

Seems like you're taking a lot of inspiration from D.Gray-Man in terms of style, in this. Which I love.

I don't see anything wrong with it at all! Well done. Personally I don't think it necessarily needs toning Lol.

actually u honestly got some of the essence of the fight scenes of Blame! itself. so many times killy would get pwned and then mist would waft away and hed have his gun. plus in Blame! theres alot of that mist or w/e , which u also had.

but doing Nihei's actual style is impossible. he does it so perfectly. cant copy someones elses art down to the bone :). nice comic tho!

lone-momo, thanks for the DD feature! :)

I'm glad lots of you like this comic. It's a one shot for a local competition.

Just to clarify, the protagonist is revived from a back-up data, the white corpse is the previous version of her.

Also, is this something that's going to be continued, or is this just kind of a one-shot thing here?

It's inspired from a manga called Blame!, and I've never read it but heard the art is wonderful.

This piece is truly astounding. I have never personally read "BLAME!" but have seen enough impressive fanart to recognise an emulation of Nihei's style.
The panels convey a definite pace, which is not easy to accomplish - believe me I have tried, and there has been much cursing and screwing up of sketches as a result xD

The emotion in this is fantastic too - I felt a pang of sympathy for the 'antivirus program' dude in the final panel, when it evidently has to terminate itself. Poor guy :(
Still, his gun is totally badass! :D

The very first panel i knew it was Blame! influenced! one of my favorite comics ever. i gotta say though, i really like the way you drew the faces as compared to Killy's face. plus Nihei Tsutomu studied architecture, so it would be hard to draw that unless you studied it too, but this still looks nice!

Hi there, I did notice (and enjoy) the Blame! influence while looking through your comic and I thought you did an interesting job of emulating Nihei Tsutomu's work while still managing to keep things feeling fresh... if you get what I mean.

If this is you being a newbie at comic art, I would love to see what you develop into with more experience!
