I imagine that could be said about a LOT of things.

This is a pretty far-fetched idea.

Creation Station / My portfolio (before my scanner fried)
« on: April 10, 2009, 02:58:39 PM »
These are just a few pieces of work that I've done over the past year or so.  I don't really do colors(color blind), so it's all black and white(pencil, inking pen, etc).


This took me about 3 hours to complete.  Nothing spectacular, but was fun to do.


Took about 9 hours for this one.  Some of the stuff could be better, but going into so much detail you start to run out of ideas that relate to the main theme of the piece.  Still one of my faves, though.


Time spent on this one was about 15 hours.  It's sort of like looking at your hand while you're on an acid trip, but not really on acid.  By far my favorite thing I've done.


4 hours.  Spaceship or a knife?  You decide.


19 hours.  19.  The bases for this is that even religion has its ugly side?  I guess.  2 days of being snowed-in will do this to you.

That's all for now until I can get my scanner or digicam up and running again.  Hope everyone enjoys!

I swear there's just no telling with that beast.  I can see a scenario where it doesn't come out until the end of the series when Guts and Griffith have their "supposed" final battle.

This is purely speculation(and a bit off-topic), but I can imagine Casca not wanting to be with Guts after--if--she recovers so she joins Griffith and then somewhere down the line Griffith and Guts come to a head and, boom, Griffith kills Casca for whatever reason he has and thus the ensuing battle between the beast and hawk becomes the things legends are made of. 

Who knows, though.

I don't think any of them will die.  Guts has evolved VASTLY as a character in terms of personality AND strength.  I doubt he would let another eclipse-like scenario happen to his new-found friends.

Also, and this is just my opinion, I feel like if Guts went off the deep end and the beast of darkness overtook him and he killed his friends then it would be a MAJOR step backwards for the character.  Guts has come a long way and, honestly, I just don't see it happening that way.  They might die at the hands of apostles or Griffith himself, but not Guts. 

Story-wise, it just doesn't seem logical.  Shock-value-wise, sure, I guess.

Renewing heroes for a third season was the final straw for me.

I don't think Miura would live long enough to make it to 100 volumes :schnoz:

haha Yeah I expected it to be much lower than that; quite possibly in the negatives.

I read Watchmen when I heard that the movie was being made. I didn't like it. I'm didn't like what I would call "filler". I'm sure there is a meaning to the pirate comic and all the boring banter of that news stand seller guy but I could care less for all of it. There was more but its been a few months since I read it.

I will tell you this: a lot of people did NOT enjoy the book the first time.  Upon reading it more than once, you'll find that the story and characters are THAT much better.

I'm actually looking forward to the Watchmen.  I've read the GN countless times and think it would be interesting to see how they pull everything off.

I know that the Squid will be in the movie, but not as we see it in the comic.  It's the S.QU.I.D.(Sub Quantum Intristic Device).  It won't be as epic as a gigantic animatronic squide ripping through the streets of Manhattan like in the GN, but not everything can be perfect.

If anyone hasn't read the GN yet, I highly recommend it.  As a long-time comic reader, I'd put it in a category of its own since, really, it IS in a category of its own.

Currently reading "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy.  I'm about halfway through and. so far, I'm really enjoying it.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Re: Dark Horse Releases

Solarmaker, your post is not only poorly formulated and misplaced, but also disrespectful. You may be frustrated but that doesn't excuse it.

For over 20 years, as a matter of fact.

I doubt anyone here has an interest in how long you've waited to do anything. It's nothing remarkable. Also, they're called episodes and not chapters, and at the end of episode 301 it just said "to be continued". Get it right. Now, if you use the elements in your post and think a little bit, you should be able to come up with many hypotheses for the recent extended breaks. Like for example the possibility that after years of working on Berserk pretty much non-stop, Miura might want to take some time for himself. To take it slowly for a while, you know. Or maybe the fact that we're at the pivotal point of the series, and that a lot of preliminary work is required in order to produce a high quality manga. Because as you don't know for not having looked around on this forum before posting, Miura first plans the scenario, new designs, developments and the like during his breaks, and only then does he draw the episodes during the two weeks available between Young Animal issues.

Being as completely ignorant about the production of Berserk as you are, you really shouldn't be posting about it.

And how exactly is an irregular publication supposed to earn him more money? Honestly it seems to me like you don't know what you're talking about. Do you even buy Young Animal? No you don't, so why even make such a comment?

Man.  Here I thought that I was getting the wrath.

Anywho, I have no problem with the translations provided from DH.  As long as I can kick back, relax and read them anywhere besides infront of a monitor then I'm good to go.

I do love the fact that, as of late, DH has been pushing them out faster.  It may just be me, though, but it really does seem like they're being released closer together than they used to be.

been over two months since the last episode was released.  i'm really hoping that this doesnt turn into another six-month wait.

i'm going to be in japan for about two weeks so i think i'll track mr. miura down and see how he's progressing on his game.

Pretty awesome turn of events in this episode. I wonder if this will bring a more humanly side to the apostles in future episodes? Maybe they won't be as gungho about killing people unless they're sacrifices?

I think it's a pretty good idea for Irvine.

With those antlers in front of him it seems like he's going to use it for like a slingshot or a bow and arrow-type weapon. Perfect for long shots and aiming.
