these pages are amazing, the digital colouring is really professional and it helped a lot your pencil drawing to become more clear to understand. I wasn't easy follow the storytelling in the pencils status, but now it's a lot easier (without reading the cap).

i agree bloom does clear up alot of stuff in my work...but sometimes i know hes goignto color it so i dont clear things up as much as i have to because 99 percent of the time hes sees what i do.

I .... well, I really like the pages, and I think you're really onto something. The colors really help your line art.
It's just ... how many times have you posted this series of pages now? I appreciate you want to update folks on the progress, but it seems like this sequence has been around the S&SA board several times. I think it'd be a better practice to either update your progress in the News & Announcements forum or simply update the initial thread with links to the artwork instead of reposting the same stuff time and again.
I really enjoy this page, and I really don't mean to come off as the heavy, but I want to ensure everybody gets a fair shake in getting their posts seen, and I'm concerned that posting the same artwork multiple times, even with tiny changes, could circumvent that.

This is the first time the pages have ever been posted with lettering...in defense of Grendel :)
Which I would think justifies a new posting...though I do realize the artwork has already been seen.
Oh well, regardless, thanks for the comments so far. I'm Ty, the writer on the project.

Pj- this is the only second post of these pages and with letters I have updated every other thing ive done even the dune pages which you informed me to do before. But im sorry, my intent isnt to take anything away from anyone else. Your not comign off as anything I understand where you are comign from.

I don't mean to be nitpicky, but I don't think it's appropriate to repost a topic just to show it with the letters. In this case, it's probably a better idea to maybe think about updating the artwork in the original thread (not adding new artwork, just changing the links, etc). Bumping posts is acceptable within reason, and I don't blame you for wanting your work to be seen.
But when we get multiple updates, from sketch to pencils to colors to letters, etc. it gets to feel awfully promotional-like, and might be more appropriate for the News & Announcements forum.
Remember, too, that our policy has been to always post your own work. With that in mind, unless there are substantial updates to your portion of the work, it's really not kosher to be posting the same pages over and again just because someone else added something, etc. You know? It would be perfectly fine for the colorist to post his contributions in the Coloring & Digital Art forum, for example, but it's not as appropriate for you to repost the artwork in Storytelling, etc.
Anyway, thanks for the understanding. If I'm not making myself clear (which is entirely possible - I'm in the middle of my second 70+ hour work week in a row) feel free to email or PM me about it.

I finally got to read the story!!! yes! yes!! YES!!!!!!!!!!
This is TOTALLY beautiful. It is the perfect connection between story and art and you guys have put together the perfect package.
Now all I can do is sit back and hope you finish the dune walking in a similar manner.
Also the lettering looks very professional and I am wondering where the fonts came from...(blambot.com, comicraft, there are 100s of sites for fonts and I am not going to bother typing all of them).

Matt: Wow, very cool. Glad you like the way the art and writing work together, that REALLY means a lot. And the fonts are just "Letter O-Matic" (caption boxes) and "Digital Strip" (dialogue) both free fonts from Blambot I believe. Thanks again, appreciate the enthusiastic feedback on this.
