A while ago I asked box to color in a old comic, assuming he'd go back and do one of the ones that weren't colored at all but instead he chose to do his own take on this one Dry Kirby did. Artists, whatcha gonna do?

Anyway, we'll be back with a brand new comic next week so hold on tight and tell your friends.

It is entirely possible that I'm not as good at backgrounds as DryKirby.
Possibly.
Maybe.
I doubt it.

How did you get the lineart? I thought I merged the lineart and color layers. Either way, this is pretty fantastic, I was pleasantly surprised.

By the way, the blockhead guy. Since nobody guessed, his outfit is based on Gimmick!, an old NES game by Sunsoft. Don't ask why, I don't have any real reason.

I used the Magic Wand to select all the blue, copied it to a new layer and turned it black.

I'm VERY used to having lineart sharing a layer with something I don't want it to.

Lazy. /shot

In all seriousness though, good show, Box. It definately seems a lot more shaded and realistic.

I think I like this one a little better... but that's just my opinion.

Sorry DryKirby, but I prefer this one.

I prefer the shading of Box but the detail of DryKirby.
Overall?
I prefer DryKirby's version, it's much beautiful with the awesome backgrounds.

Sorry, Box...

I think the black lines look much better than the blue, personally.

So let me get this straight:
Gods have to watch their waistlines too?

Probably not, considering one of the gods rules over wine and partying. If anything, I think "fattening" being so insulting is a testament to how fickle and vain the Parthenon is in Venatus.

Watched too much Dragon Ball Kai... Saw this and immediately mistook Kratos' Name to be "Kakarotto".

To be honest, Kratos would make a great Saiyan. The evil kind of Saiyan that is.
