RS: Your Fault by KJanuary RS: Your Fault by KJanuary
----Excerpted from Rising Storm----

"You're a fool," Farren hissed. "You can't rewrite the laws of the world just because you don't like them. If you hate killing so much, then go crawl back to whatever dreamland you came from, because you don't belong here. Itís a bloody, reeking war we're fighting in a bloody, reeking, hellbound world."
"That's why I'm here," Erylandes replied evenly, but his narrowed eyes revealed his temper. "I came to change that."
"You can't change anything! The only thing youíve done so far is killed my family!"
He saw the wince that went through the young man. "I never meant... Farren, I wouldn't..."
"Because you couldn't stand to have blood on your hands, you let them be murdered!" Farrenís voice was rising, all the anger he had been supressing for weeks suddenly igniting at once. "Yes, you crippled hypocrite, itís your fault!"





Speed-drawing, speed-inking, and speed-painting in a different style than usual. The background is adopted from a photograph because I'm lazy. The writing is taken from the middle part of RS, because it says more than author's notes would.

Ery, Farren, and RS belong to me.

I like this one, the dark grittiness and the power of the emotions coming through their positions and showing in their eyes. Very nicely done.

Just wondering...not to pressure you or anything, but I just caught up on all of the comics you have on Drunk Duck and smackJeeves...so when's the next page coming out?

You suckered me in with the mystery and the interesting array of characters. The drawings are awesome too. It's interesting to see your style improve and change and become more defined.

Hope to see more pages soon. =)

I wonder if it'll ever occur to pacifists that they MUST defend themselves at certain points.

I can't speak for all pacifists, but for this one... well, it's part of the story, whether or not he can keep that belief intact.

I really love how murky the colors are, and how it sets the mood for the whole picture. I love how the eyes stand out against the darker colors.

Wonderful job on expressions!

Beautiful!

And of course, the writting makes me want to know exactly what is going on. Not that you didn't give a good idea, but more that it perks my interest for the whole story! :D

I like that background. Did you alter it very much? It seems to fit with the drawings well. I have seen photos put into drawings a lot that just don't fit, but this one really seems to work.

Even though it was done quickly, I still like it.

All I did to the photo was "fuzz" the lines a little bit (so that the drawn part wouldn't look messy in comparison) and mess with the contrast/saturation settings. I'm lazy, but not lazy enough to put up a photo-BG that doesn't work with the painting. Glad you like!
