Ugh...That took awhile
Finally, an update!
not quite a regular schedule yet, but I'm getting there!
Corporation Kids
As Gwyneth is explaining, the School (Eternal Vision) is supported by the major corporations.
Even though it is not a private school, most of the student body is composed of the children of corporate employees. There is a screening process where students are required to take an aptitude test to determine admittance and placement.
Wealth does in fact, play a role in admittance, but not placement.
Rim Marie is actually quite gifted, being placed in a class above her age group. But she ranked 4th in test scores in her class under Cleo Ballard (1st and class representative) Gwyneth Dorlynn (2nd) and Audra Wilford (3rd)

ah..Gwyneth, she is TOTALLY crushing on Rimy!
Clueless Reiko
Before you ask, Yes. Reiko is THAT clueless!
She is actually pretty intelligent (she wouldn't be in that school if she wasn't) she just has tunnel vision.
In her defense though, Chulhoon is really good at being inconspicuous. :D

Whew! finished this page on the 31st of May (I said I would see if I could get one out before June)
The next page may not make it out by next Thursday though, but I will do my best with the time I have!
Danielle Elizabeth SinClaire!

Dani was the main character of a comic I made when I was in high school called 'The Legend of Phoenix'
Gwyneth and Pensila were also from her comic. I am currently re-writing that comic (renamed 'Eternal Flame') as Danielle's backstory. I don't know if it will take 'full' comic form due to my limited time.

As for Dani's role in 'Song of the Butterfly'....well she has a pretty big part(s) in the story. I'm sorta worried she will overshadow poor Rimy since she is a more developed character. You will get to see a lot more of her in coming chapters.

...heh heh heh :D
Easter Bunny twarted my update
That thug the Easter Bunny showed up last week and we engaged in fisticuffs!
I won of course, but the fight delayed my update.
Curse you! You long-eared, egg-toting FREAK!
A bit late
Sorry about the late page.
Got caught up on some other projects. Had to rush this one a bit, so I might have to go back and tweak it a bit later ;)
K.O.! Nicole Wins!
Ah! more Kei panty shots!
More band-aids for Kei too!
Guardian Training Grove
Originally, I had planned to render the whole place in Maya and use that for the back ground.
It didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. So I went with good ol' hand-drawn and photoshop.
I still use the render as a reference/ layout map.

I didn't 'actionize' the panels on this page. I just didn't like the way they looked.
Rimy's 'fight' should make up for it though *heh heh*
Page 179 Skeeve
When I wrote this chapter, I had another demon in mind to use in place of Skeeve, but I decided to save her for a later chapter cause she was sooooo cool.

I hate Skeeve.
but he is good at tracking, so it makes since Laz and Roaja would use him.

I still hate him though.
not much text
The dialogue on this page actually didn't take long to add....but the art on the page itself....UGH
It was worth it though. This marks the first appearance of Danielle in one of my comics since the mid 90's (she had her own comic)

I won't reveal anything about her yet, but she will have an extensive character design page sometime in the future. I will have to piece it together into a single page because she has so much history and so many design changes.

She is definitely one of my favorite characters :D
Bloo's Angels
I like this page :D
I had to design a grade school uniform for the next few panels.
I thought of going with yellow but it didn't look very good so I went with light blue.
@Marduk: Happy Birthday Marduk!
I hope you got cake!
Wha? itsn't a bit early?
a bit early, but I'm expecting company this weekend (and snow) so I figured I would go ahead post the new page just in case I don't get a chance or forget because I'm too busy.

I'm terrible at keeping to the update schedule anyways, might as well be early instead late for once :D
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Everyone! time for my nap :D
Ah Kei
Her name and hair color come from another character.

When my friends an I used to play fighting games all the time, we used to voice what we thought the characters were saying to each other. Kei Okuda was a character I had in my MUGEN roster and I would always voice her when she came up...and thus Kei was born.

Full of herself and VERY overconfident, Kei is a brawler. Very much like the Guardian Cynthia (she's coming up soon!), Kei like to solve her arguments with her fists.
She usually has a band-aid on her body somewhere because he always gets hurt sparring with Nicole. Her original design has her with freckles, but that made her too much like Cynthia so I removed them. I did away with the breast bandages and just made her a bit smaller.

Kei likes to fight in whatever she is wearing...which is usually her uniform. Expect to see ALOT of panty shots from Kei. :D
Silent Nicole!
When I designed Nicole, I imagined her to be very soft-spoken.
I wanted to give her a baby-face, but as I drew her more and more, I really didn't like it so much.
She always seemed to be picking on Kei, but the two are actually very close friends (more so than either of them are to Heart)
Although Nicole likes Heart, she considers her more of a boss than a friend.
Heart Collins
Heart changed a bit from the designed version
I originally wanted her to be tall and thin, sorta like
a fashion model. But I decided I didn't want her to be too much taller than Kei and Nicole.
I ended up making her hair a bit too curly in the actual comic than I intended. I kept drawing it like the Guardian Cynthia's hair (we get to see her later in the chapter)I'll try and correct it as I go :D
I made her freckles less prominent since Kei was suppose to have alot of freckles (which I ended up ditching)

I must have a thing for freckles and glasses. Even Rimy has glasses, she just doesn't wear them outside of her room. She only needs them to read. (just wait until Gwyneth see Rimy wearing them :D )
I'm going to try to move the update day back to Thursday night/Friday morning. SO there will be another page this week.
I guess I should set aside time to make a Comic cover too for the site redesign ;)
@Marduk: Thanks!
I have been meaning to update, life just got in my way XD

@supercomputer276: It's good to be back!
So smart, she's dumb!
Ah Gwyn!
Aside from Danielle SinClaire, Gwyneth is my OLDEST character (not in story old)

I originally created her for the same comic Danielle and Pensila came from.I absolutely adore her :D

Her design influences...a girl I knew in junior high named Christina (her posture and those HUUUGE glasses)
and her MAIN influence was The Little Mermaid ( I loved drawing her back then!)

In Song of the Butterfly, her story is sorta sad. In the next few chapters, Rimy will start to piece it together.

Gwyneth is the 3rd highest scoring child in her class. (Cleo Ballard and Audra Allum placing above her and Rim Marie below her)
She excels in math and computers. She can remember anything she reads, BUT she is terrible with the names of people she just met (there are odd exceptions as we will soon see in the upcoming chapters).

I shouldn't spoil any more!
