Ah Hizruk.... ya gave Keymen the chance to utilize his most effective weapon: his words. Look at you all enraptured in what he's saying X)

Something tells me that hit hurt a lot more than Keymen's letting on... but what the heck do I know? :P
Also that's a pretty ballsy wager you're making there, Key XDD

-------

HAY GUYS!! I missed you!! Do you notice anything different about this page? Well.. on my trip I had a few epiphanies I think might help me improve.
I have been unhappy for a while with how things were looking..so I'm doing yet another one of my "adjustments" XDD. You will notice this page doesn't have those hideous thick panel borders and page border... aaand I took away that background color. It was starting to confuse me XD. Also I'm adjusting how I do backgrounds as well because those were becoming disasterous.

I hope the changes so far are for the better! It's not perfect yet.. or maybe never will be XD... but all I ever think about is how to improve.

**

I hope you guys had a great holiday (for those who celebrate it :P). Have an awesome weekend!! See you next week ^__^


I mean like... if you want you can vote. No biggie! I still haven't updated the incentive because I'm a loser... I just need to finish the new one dangit XD. It's drawn!

Thank you so much!!! My hope is for it to look better and better. Still not quite there yet but I think it might be a step in the right direction! I hope XD

Yeah, I love Keymen now. Merek is LUCKY to have this guy as a partner.

Also, I didn't realize just how tall Keymen is until that last panel. Hizruk towers over just about everyone else, and he looks like a tiny kid there. I know you're super busy, but is there any chance you'd do a "lineup" of your cast some day just to see the different heights?

"One's word can only mean so much among strangers," hmm. Yeah, this is definitely NOT the first time Keymen has convinced someone to stop attacking him, even though possessed/hulked out serpents are probably new to him as well. And he's REALLY standing by what he said to Merek earlier about Hizruk being a good kid, isn't he! I hope he's right about sneak snake/red eye Hizruk and not just normal Hizruk.

New style, ooo! I didn't catch the last change you made to the borders waaay back 3.15, but I immediately thought that this page looked more "open." The thinner lines look great, at least to me! The one thing that's a little bit confusing to read are the floating panels. I don't know whether to read those Keymen, Hizruk surprised by hitting him, then Keymen laughing or Keymen, Keymen laughing,and Hizruk surprised BY the laughing, but that's all minor.

Hehe yes Keymen is not a small specimen.. but even still Merek towers over HIM. I really SHOULD do a character line up...for my own sake too! THat's a great idea!

Yea Key has pretty much "been there, done that" with just about everything lolol... but yea except possessed hulked out ones LOL. Ilike that hahahha. He can tell, at least, that Hizruk isn't attacking him maliciously... which is good X'D...just out of desperate self defense. HOPEfully red eye Hizzy will be able to understand that to preserve his life, heeee should probably listen to this crazy person XDD.

And thank you for such great feedback about the differences to the page! I fully get what ya mean about those floating panels.. but I guess I kinda made it so it doesn't really matter which one is read first cuz they're kinda happening at the same moment XD. As l ong as they're both read before that 4th one! Again tho I was eager for some feedback! Making changes is always a little scary haha

I'm just silly then! Those panels' placement makes perfect sense for "simultaneous." Glad I was able to help!

The format of the page does look much cleaner now, not that I had issues with the previous ones. :)

Key certainly is an interesting character. Lots of layers. :3

Hmmm... was that REALLY his plan? To take a hit like that?? But I love how he spins it around, like he's the man: a bit of arrogance + charm is what the ladies love (ahem, Gwynn) so I guess it also works on the son too. Haha.

I really like how this page looks. Your work's always been great, but it's cool to see you take making improvements head-on. I am definitely a fan of the smaller borders!

Welcome back!

Lolol weeell the getting hit part wasn't his plan, but.. his plan was to get him to stop attacking hahaha...which kinda happened by default after Hizzy hit him!. LOL like mother like son! Maybe its not all too common to come across someone who always seems to know EXACTLY what he's doing XDD

Yay thank you for the feedback!! It is really encouraging-- its scary to make changes, but I really think they're for the better and its nice to hear people agreeing with me! :D

The difference in the backgrounds really stands out to me, Serpy - and it looks really good! :D I think the changes you made are good ones :D

Also, loving Keymen more with every panel he appears in XD I really hope Hizruk-baby doesn't decide to try out the shot to his heart, if he does, even I will tackle him down :'D

So Keymen is a kind of healer... a medicinal specialist? Hmm? Or something else...?

Really glad to see you back and updating again Serpy-kins, I always wanna see what happens next in SoO~! <3
