The dad makes me giggle... XD I really envy your work..how do you know JUST where to shade? I've never finished a entire picture in my life (I guess out of fear of how bad my ability is)... I'm really retarded when it comes to shading/coloring...the other day I bought a manga art kit(brush pens and such) and I'm starting to wonder why I even bought it....
XDDD You've never overshaded to me, hun. Always done in it the knick of right!
YOU CAN DO PHOTOGRAPHY!!
Usually I just draw what I -wish- I could capture in my head...
if I can't do it in photos,
I draw. drawdrawdraw
it's so important to communicate ideas...to me, anyway. <3..
Aww, Opey. I really feel for his Dad, he's trying really hard, isn't he? I fear the day Opey will come to understand more though... could it mean the Beginning of the End? Or will he just wiped the slate clean? See what I did there?
True. But I wonder whether there is anything "wrong" with Opey... or whether it's everyone else that's not "right"? I guess only keeping reading your comic will tell! (see what I did there too?) Me clever!
"..the misadventures of the world's saddest superweapon..."
And I just read Sutinen's comment and I'm going to say that, too "it hurts to see Opey's reaction". Opey is very trusting and emotional and only want acceptance from his peers. I'm afraid he's going to be very disappointed at some point, lose his innocence and become as dangerous as he can be.
Thank you, and I'm glad it's clear what is happening here. Opey's a tad naive, and his dad just can't bear to load all those heavy burdens on the boy. I was afraid that wouldn't come across (due to an error in my storytelling or not communicating the expressions of my characters clearly).
You know the weird thing about the Opey's painted-on eyes/mirror situation is, I didn't think about that when I drew it! It seemed only natural to me that Opey can see himself in the mirror with no actual eyes, and that the drawn eyes became his real eyes.
