Not that the pages before weren't drawn well, but each new page seems to feel more "solid". Guess you're getting into the swing of the manga mind set or something :D

As for the spelling and what not, again only really one thing that doesn't quite work, which is: "So you are an herb delivery boy, Shaolin?"

It would sound better if it were either:

"So, you're a herb delivery boy, Shaolin?"
"So, you're just a delivery boy?"

I wondered why no one had commented on this yet, I thought it was Saturday!

Just wanted to add on another note to say thanks to knuckles for posting up those photos of his work, reminds me of where my dad works (only yours is neater), and congrats to Luca for the cool painting!

Yay :D I've been looking forward to this one. You're very good at making me wanting to read the next page^^

The storytelling and the flow is very good. It's interesting.

I 'like the evil like look in panel one. Hehe.

Maybe you could have made the waitress' dress an other color. To break it up make easier to read.

Thanks for entertaining me.

Nice to hear the photos are apprciated.
I've posted some links of your site in
the comment there, with some more photos
of the other things we do.

And I'm glad to inform that the stack
of clothing is been taken care of. ;)

Xia I have to tell you that in the panel where the monk says "Well, I'm..." and gets interrupted, you really put curiosity in me! Thanks man for the share!

Peace! as you say ;)

Xia I've got a question:Xia you're a super artist and all but how do you get paid?you know your doing free tutorials.Only the Featured tutorials and selling the Kapow express manga in the stores can yearn money.what do you work?Sorry to butt-in your life.
Knuckles930 said…
I quote from the "About me" at the top right of the page:
"Currently I am a concept/ 3d character artist for ArenaNet/NcSoft Seattle, WA."

Hope this helps.
dahaca said…

XIA said…
Chris> Thanks again for your expertise brother! :)

Knuckle> Cool! And thanks again ;)

Luca> yeah good job there bro! Keep it up. Also thanks, I try...ha ha.

dahaca> Knuckle just save me again. :) Yes NCsoft/ArenaNet. Thanks for the idea...I am hoping to give it for free online, but hopefully have enough traffic so I can get cool ads on the site ( so that we all can enjoy hassle free!
It's a long shot, but oh well. :)
XIA said…
pokepotter> Thanks bro, yeah! I was thinking the same thing...maybe pink or something or Orange. After I saw her first appearance...I will fix all of them whenever I have some more time. :)

I guess its fair enough if we
occasionally click an add or buy a
tutorial, just for the sake of
keeping things free for all.
Not much to lose if we do.
