I appreciate the encouragement -- inks and flat colors of p. 2 are done, I just need to add some shading. On p. 3, I will need to remove the captions I originally put in place ("Shun, bronze knight of Andromeda," etc.) because it will be obvious enough who is who from the hair colors if nothing else. Also at least one figure will need to be completely redrawn -- Shun looks way too stiff and dispassionate in his first appearance.
I will try to finish and upload p. 2 today. In the meantime, if I can find reasonably clear versions of the original pencils of the first seven or so pages, I'll upload them too so that there is at least a bit of story continuity.
Page 2 colors done. Initial post updated. Will start on p. 3 right away.
Page 3 colors done and first post updated.
Page 4 colors done and first post updated. I have got to stop dragging my feet on it like this. I have set a goal to finish the redraws through p. 35, and start drawing new material, by sometime in calendar year 2011.
I threw out two panels and changed the script. My older version had Hyoga hitting on Shaina, a thing I could never imagine from the original material. This version, besides being shorter (and getting by with fewer words is in general better), fits their personalities more to my liking.
OK, now to continue with p. 5 as soon as possible!
