I like the style. No offence but since I have trypopphobia I start to shiver a bit at the sight of the picture.

No need to apologise, I wasn't paying attention at all. Actually almost, that's why I only shiver a bit instead of staring at the picture in horror for a few seconds.

I think my previous comment cause misconception even when I read it myself. May as well explain it again.

Polka dots are rather close to holes and I don't shiver at the sight of them but when the distance between each dots are really close then I will start shivering or the worst case staring in horror for a few seconds. I didn't know the picture is full of dots because I wasn't paying attention at all when I am looking through the icons in my inbox.

I really want to see more of BlueFlame and learn more about Zoe and Arun!

Do you remember awhile back we were discussing our character designs were very similar (hair color and style) just from sheer coincidence? Well, I finally got the first pages of the re-boot of my comic Altar Girl (with Ashley and Seth), online if you are interested in reading it! [link]

The comic is in black and white, but I have color deviations of my guys in my gallery! I just get really excited whenever I see BlueFlame stuff from you! I think it's really neat.

;w; I'll forever remember you, haha!

Ashley is friggin'cute >3< Wow, great job on the pages!! It's really clean and neat and easy to read! (can't say that about my stuff -__-) The last page made my heart skip :'D since... I guess she just met the other dude in her dream? If yes, then ajsjfkfjg .... (since my story revolves around dreams and people, who are able to enter dreams at will... ).

I can't put up the story yet, since it's not finished and tons of things need revision and changes :( Although, I'm already halfway through - hopefully, in sketches, though). If you want, I can post here some examples in scraps ;)

I still have no clue, whether to digitalize the pages, or rather draw in ink
Sappyness, horror and comedy will be present...hopefully it will be digestible XD If God wants me to finish it, I will....

Our stories share things in common already, but now I see, that the feel of both stories is totally different (not to mention, the plot ;) ). I am eager to see more, wishing you ALL THE BEST in capslock and thank you very much for the kind words and for remembering me :D :hug:

Thank you so much! I am so glad you like it! For me I have found it much easier to do things digitally. I sketch out the page then scan it, and ink & color digitally. It's just easier to correct mistakes (which I make a lot of), but you seem to be much better with ink/traditional media! I really like the sketch-ness of your art and the brush strokes!

Yes, it's a dream! Dreams pop up a few times, they kind of foretell the future and remember the past (more for storytelling purposes). In general I have always really liked dreams as a story device, I have another different story about a girl who lives a lot out through her dreams. I also did a comic several years ago with a friend about a future where dreams could be recorded and were all cataloged in a big "Dream Library" and "Dream Research" was an emerging field/technology, etc. I feel that you and I have a lot in common, and I just think it is so cool to be connected in a way (makes me think more about subconscious dream connections and such)!

:hug: Best of luck to you too and if you ever translate BlueFlame or do any more work on it I will be SURE to link to it from my site and give it lots of love!! :D I love what you've put up already!! Thank you so much for sharing!!

:hug: :heart: YAY!!

Gosh, you are too sweet ;///; :glomp:

I really have a feeling, that during a certain period or year, many people seem to get ideas, that are very alike - There haven't been almost any books about dreams in our bookstores until just recently... And then, the Inception movie :D Even my favorite Emmy C. noted last year, that she wants to make a comic about dreams... The whole "dream"theme seems to have had a really nutrituous time last year. I dare to say, there must be some higher inspiration source that people tend to connect to at a certain time O.O Or something like that....
Even at our school, people tend to make similarly-themed movies at the same time, even without knowing about the other themes... There was a "circus", "street lights" and "baloons" in almost every movie short or script, that was made by this year's students at our major :'D It was almost funny and they noticed only after I pointed it out. People are connected through many ways, I guess...even invisible ones.

I'll be sure to read your comic :D <3
Digital media is hard to grasp for me... And I really like to touch pencil and paper more than a tablet... Maybe I should stick to that :'D (although,...you are absolutely right - the mistakes are easier to clean in PC and overall, the look is cleaner and you can be more flexible with all the tools, the fonts....everything).

I'll be sure to give a proper note on this site, if anything new happens to the story ^__^And it will be an honor, if you'll read it! Thank you very much for the supportive words!
