So this is what Lexcore grew from. Tres fugly.
So this is how I started Lexcore. It wasn't originally called Lexcore. It was actually called "deltaFLUXcandela," which I tacked onto the Lexcore name until it eventually didn't have anything to do with the story.

Captain Muri Kathes's name used to be Captain Muri Sun, and she looked really different before [as you can see...obviously]. I actually have a character in Lexcore that's gonna look like Capt. Sun, just cuz I like how I drew Capt. Sun. Anywho, the page is fugly cuz I'd just gotten Photoshop like...that month, and I was trying to figure out how to use the layer mask [which I figured out about a week later].

I already forgot how the story was supposed to go, but I do know that the streak of white hair on Capt. Sun and that d00d, as well as the triangle on the d00d's eye were supposed to show that they weren't human. Eh, the story was crap, and this is as far as I got. I think Capt. Sun may have been hanging out by the fountain-ish thingy waiting for her partner...or something. I can't remember. X_X

Hahaha, I think Capt. Sun came from this one comic I was trying to do for the Rising Stars of Manga competition in 2005. Maybe I'll scan the [fuglier] pages sometime. XD

Isn't it great to see how we've progressed in drawing style and ability? Considering this page was one you did ages ago, it's still really, really good!

Of course, compared to the previous comic pages, your adeptness with your lines and your toning skills have progressed a lot. Now, you definitely look like a professional manga-ka.

In my case, I'm still amazed at how I know how to use Photoshop now. Before I started my web comic, I knew squat. Also, I can create characters consistently, which I was never able to do before.

^_^ Happy Tuesday!

kurasune: XD The page is so ugleh! I think I sat there for about half an hour trying to figure out the stupid layer mask before just giving up. Hahahaha, good times. Dunno about the professional part, though. I've still got a long way to go to make it look less amateur-ish... T_T And PHOTOSHOP IS MAGICAL! Why else would we suddenly be able to do things we couldn't do?! PHOTOSHOP MUST BE THE LINK! ::spazz::

Yaoitsumo: Haha, the word bubbles are green cuz I was an idiot and erased the pencilled text of the bubbles without making sure there was a white layer under it, so it came out all transparent. XD And then I saved as PNG, so now you guys can see the green comic page background. Silly me. Hahahaha, and I'll post more if I can find them. I'm not sure where my junk is right now... x_x

Yaaay! <3 to kurasune and Yaoitsumo!
