Why am I still up?
Well, I was going to upload this when I woke up, but I decided, what the heck, and just uploaded it now to save myself the time tomorrow.
This is it. The final set of Arc 1. ALL THE FEELS. And text.
A few things to note: the 23rd panel is my attempt--key word: ATTEMPT--at sepia. It's alright-looking, compared to other panels. Also, the 29th panel took 3 hours ALONE to lineart. I am extremely proud of it, although my symmetry took an arrow to the knee *shot* Ha. All that work on a panel that didn't even have any lines in it. Me and detail...B.F.F.A.E.A.E.
And Crystal's dad is BLACK. She's mixed. Deal.
So...content. I actually don't know how much--or little--I may or may not have revealed, but I wanted to give as much foreshadowing as I could to the overall plot, so it wouldn't be a big ass mystery. HOWEVER, I'm not taking questions on said plot, so you can wonder things until the time comes to reveal them. All I will say is that Crystal is very unaware of her exact mission; she just knows that the easiest way to reach her goal is to challenge the league. And please, remember the old guys in panel 29 (the one I slaved over simply for art's sake). It'll make sense in the end (hopefully?), trust me. And this is just the MAIN plot. There are OTHER plotlines (mini ones) that I've yet to even reveal at all, so...I guess you'll just have to wait and see, huh?
Chikoru offers his trainer a dashing smile, his first to her, really. From now on, he'll be smiling a little more, I think. Tepi shows off her adorableness, bloody dragons are everywhere, Vast has a tactless moment, another nude shot, shiny badges, Crystal's ninja!dad, dat blue hair, and huggles.
I'm going to sleep now.
Oh, and I ask for critiques, meaning on the Arc as a WHOLE, not just this particular set.
And a hiatus until whenever. Arc II is next! New cover~
