My girlfriend wanted a picture of a red and white lighthouse and I couldn't think of anything till randomly in the middle of church service it all came to me and I found myself frantically scribbling on the bulletin. O_o

I've always loved the artwork of Bill Tiller. He's the artist for such games as Curse of Monkey Island and A Vampyre Story. I've recently been doing an "art study" on him. I've been analyzing and critiquing his artwork, trying to improve my style and art quality.

AND. . .

I just so happened to color this one entirely in digital O_O

Tell me what you think!!

about that I don't know If I shouls post my manga because kyle said deviant art will have all the rights to it if I post it. what do you think I should do.

Well technically yes but they won't do anything to it. Besides, what I said to do was to just post a "teaser" or a "preview" of it. Basically just post enough to get people interested/get feedback. So post like the first chapter or something. That way you can get feedback on it about what works and what doesn't and you can get your artwork out there.

oh ok thanks for the help on that, because i wasn't sure if I should post it or not at all. Now I will and it will be great.

Like the pic. What program did you color this in?

It looks a bit over compressed. (Look at the red on the lighthouse in the full-size version.) Hope you have the original still.

Also, man, that watermark is annoying. Is that just so I'll buy your print? =)

Lol woops sorry I didn't answer your first question. It's colored in SAI paint coloring program.

The watermark is cause I completely spaced that and didn't remove it XD I'll fix that real quick.

Although that's not a bad idea to leave the watermark in. . .
