DOUBLE K REMASTERED - PAGE 008 by captainosaka DOUBLE K REMASTERED - PAGE 008 by captainosaka
HERE'S MORE

The small stuff, like I've said before, adds up. Nono's face in the first panel, for instance, was so grossly misshapen in the original that I couldn't believe I'd drawn it in the first place (eyes don't go on peoples' foreheads WHAATTT). Other things, like the white highlights on Kamina's hair/jacket in the original, were touches that I abandoned very quickly in favor of a more high-contrast style, so they needed to be made consistent. Also, these very early pages have a lot of totally unnecessary drop shadows that make things too busy, so I cut down on those, while at the same time accentuating tiny details (look at Simon in the last panel compared to the old one). I went ahead and added some screentone to make sure the girls stood out in the foreground of panel 2, as well as to draw more attention to Kamina's changing expressions in the following panels.

There are tiny bits I like in the old better than the new (Asuka in the 1st, mostly), but you're right in that it does read a lot better now!
Also new 5th panel: Lookin' kinda Spike there, Kamina.

To be honest I dont see any reason why you feel the need to redo your comic strip. It seemed more then fine to me.

THIS was the page that sold me on this comic way back when. Kamina's expressions there in the middle... perfection.

Ye GODS, man. You truly are the Cap'n. And you make it fucking happen.
