4 (who?)
First half of my Firewind OCT entry against *Pandachu. Second half is almost done and should be up in a few days (I hope)

In the meantime this half serves mostly for exposition and filling in a few plot-holes. I also decided to change the art up a bit for this one and I've been experimenting with new things and whether or not I feel comfortable with them (hence you'll see character designs changing slightly over the course of several pages ><, yes I fail). Overall I'm more satisfied with this than my last one, though I do apologize to anyone who's characters have somehow become OOC in my pathetic interpretation of them, especially in the case of my opponent's character :iconimsorryplz:

Speaking of, Zane is outrageously fun to write for, especially interacting with Seläh (property of ~Tayuya-Gaara-909, again apologies if OOC) and Oharue's more carefree side XD...

Also, the title 'Melody of Lies' is a slight reference to one of my favourite manga series, Spiral: Shuri no Kizuna, in which the main character would often refer to something called 'melody of truth'. Since the OCT revolves around themes of lies, mistrust and what-not, I thought it seemed appropriate, also there's the fact that Drake set them up so that they would fight (going off Pandachu's Epilogue for round 1 in an attempt to prove his loyalty to Asmodeus)

Oh and to clear things up, the first scene with Asmodeus and Legion talking takes place before this [link] (as I'd finished those pages before hand and was relieved to see they didn't clash at all :iconsweatdropplz:) and the second one takes place after if anybody was confused ><

Damn I ramble :iconconfusedplz: Anyway, part 2's coming soon so I'll see you all then...

The humor in this is quite nice, haha! I love the 'random stranger fight' bit and how nuts Oharue is, not to mention the stick your head in a pig tree. That made me crack up XDDD

It was either that or wait for him to find out himself and thus be angry at legion for not telling him...

He just can't win :shrug:

He'd quit his job, but apparently that goes against the contract he was forced to sign at knifepoint D:

PFFFHAHAHAHA ALRIGHT I JUST DIED. I think you win, yours is much better than mine. QwQ Ahhh, this is so awesome, you write Zane so well, and I can tell you had a lot of fun with that. :lmao: Well, my first impressions of your round so far...I'm surprised how much they parallel! :giggle: It's kinda funny, of course we have different reasons, but I think it's hilarious that the results are the same. :nod: The four people are just...none of them get along I can tell. :lmao: It's so great. ALSO, ALSO, I LOVE OHARUE EVEN MORE NOW. She's so spunky. c:
I like what you did with the narration boxes being in color and all. I also like what you're trying with your style there. Personally, I'm not a big fan of eyes showing through hair (it's just really unnatural), but I like that stylistic choice. This is really getting great, I can't wait for the next part!:eager:

FFF...I'm so glad to hear you approve, I'm always paranoid I've gone and done something completely wrong and have to start all over again :iconsweatdropplz:

Oharue has got to be one of my personal favourites, most of the rest of my OCs are all dark and serious and then she comes along with her "f*ck yeah, I kick ass" attitude to brighten everything up XD...

Haha, I get asked about my little 'eye' thing quite a lot, and I do it mainly because I love drawing eyes but also because I think they're an important aspect of the character and you can relate to them more if you can see their eyes (window to the soul and all that) so I draw them even with long bangs of hair hanging over them like Oharue's hair does...

I'm just fixing some things now, it'll be up as soon as I'm done XD...

I know the feeling! :noes: I always like, write out a character and then feel like I might have missed something and then their creator will be like "NUUUU U DEED ET WRONG!"

HAHA! I love that about her, hehe! ♥

That's cool, I see what you're getting at! :nod:

ahahaha Seläh and Zane make such an amusingly mismatched pair. I love it!! (Plus it makes me happy to my characters in other people's work) Good luck in this round!
TotalObelisk Jul 17, 2010  Student Digital Artist
I always enjoy pairing characters with totally mis-matched personalities together, it make for such fun dialogue XD...

Also, it seems to me I end up using your characters quite a lot...(though granted this is only the second time I've done it) :iconlolwatplz:
Tayuya-Gaara-909 Jul 20, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
haha yes, it most certainly does.

yeahh....I suppose that has some truth to it...
