It's so exciting guys! I've never really felt so much excitement doing this comic especially all the scenery money shots just because I've never seen it done like this before. Granted, this has flaws too because I'm working with certain limitations I've never worked with before, only in black and white and no grays. Doing this comic book has made me appreciate the old Silver Age American comics even more. Those guys can't even have colours and unlike their counterparts in Japan, they have no access to decent screen tones!!!
The two artists that I'm trying to study more are Akira Toriyama in the earlier Dragon Ball books (yes, we've heard it all about Dragon Ball, but take a look at that comic again, that man is a genius !!! Staging, inking, style, it's masterfully crafted!) and Jack Kirby.
