Hey dude! Don't worry about a bit of sillyness, I'm pretty sure most mangas out there like to throw in a bit of fun every now and again.

Some grammar alterations:

laugh til death COULD be changed to laugh til dead.. but you might be able to get away with it as is.

Taugh it up to Tough it up

I only touch your temple to I only touched your temple

How dare you tricked me to how dare you trick me

finally, You think this is funny to you? to You think this is funny do you?

You spelt embarrass right though, which is funny because I thought that was wrong!

Have a cool weekend man.

During further analysis I noticed that the contrast and color balance are close to mathematically perfect.

Great work.

HEY!That's my line!
Thanks Xia for drawing Mei kicking Goofy in the face!Awesome!I agree with pokepetter
Luca said…
Wonderful brother! and this is MY line! :D
Oh my... I think that Mr.Goofy did his worst mistake so far (in the last panel)!!
I am sure you can read and understand my intentions Xia, you know what should the monk do next ;)

Wonderful again brother!

pokepetter said…
Next, the monk suddenly flickers for a fraction of a second and Mr.Goofy turns to dust, or maybe he just his insides splashed on Big Bow's food.

The monk's probably not that kind of person is he?

In all the mangas I read there would be a"ask now fight later"but here they've begun the fight so i am waiting for the asking part

Hey XIA,

I am trying to make my first how to video using Camtasia, I want it to be high quality like your videos, but it is taking FOREVER to render the project. I just wanted to know what settings you set your videos to. Do you use the blogging preset? Also, in order to add a music mp3, you just drop the file into the audio channel, right? Thanks!
Luca said…
David > I'll tell you that for camtasia usually my preset size settings are 640x480. It also depends on the length of the video. To increase it's speed (fastforward) simply add it to the time-line and right click on it and set the Clip Speed (in %). Regarding to the music, just drag it in Camtasia, then drag it to the time line. Nothing special. Keep in mind though that the clip speed will effect after you publish it.
I'll tell you a small trick I did once. If the rendered clip is very big in size, just open it using Windows Movie Maker, publish it immediately and set the dimensions settings.

Regarding the upload, I tell you Howcast!

Hope I was of help!

XIA said…
Pokepetter> Thanks, math and color? interesting, I should do some research and blog about that. Great idea!

Chris> Thanks brother, :)

dahaca> You are welcome. Thanks for the feedback and idea. :)
Asking part? what do you mean? Talking smack or something like that?

Luca> ha ha bother, you never know what's gonna happen Everything is still unfolded but it will reveal itself in time.

pokepetter> Good idea! I will see what I can do. :)

David> Yes render takes sometimes depending on how fast your computer is. Luca already answer the setting question for you :) Also don't make it too high of a resolution will help. :)

Luca> thanks bro!
dahaca6022 said…
the asking part should be like:
-Who are you and what do you want with the monk?
-I am Goofy from the land of Disney.That monk carries a valuable information about a new and powerful fighting style...
and i leave the rest to Xia
XIA said…
dahaca> I see,...thanks
