Oh my god...that art is amazing.  Oh man, I just can't get over it.  Page 12 looks like something an artist would spend days and days on.  Its just too amazing.  I don't mind the more fantastic themes at all if its going to look like this.

This was pretty rushed, mostly because I just wanted to see it in color RIGHT AWAY. The speed I did this in really shows through. I think im gonna give it a second try. I saved a few selections, so it wont take that long to recolor it.

If you guys are ever in a bind again just ask and I'll get the goods to you asap ^___^ And yeah I couldn't resist doin' the cover... There's no way in hell that chick's 19 @_@;;

Yeah, for a T and A mag, that cover somehow manages to scare me. Those girls look weird beyond airbrushed.
Thanks for scanning the chapter though.  :)

The golems kind of remind me of those clucking forest spirits in Princess Monoke. They're innocent looking yet creepy. Maybe they're the expert carpenters that built/grew the house.  :D

That was a great chapter!! Thanks Walter, and I love the coloring you did for page 12!  ;D Anyone wondering how they are going to get out of this? I think Guts and Serpico will hold them off (with the help of Puck and Isidro of corse  :D) and then Schierke will arrive and stop the Golems.  :P

Wow, awesome chapter.  Thank you Walter!  

Man, its been awhile since I've seen Guts bring out the Dragonslayer and get down to business.   I was like "Yessss!" when he chopped off the ginger-bread golem's arms off.  It was even surprising to see that the fight wasn't over yet by seeing the golem's arms regenerate.  Damn, Guts is going to have an interesting fight with this creature.   :o

An update on the Page 11-12 business. Ranemaka13 informed me that page 12 is actually a 2 page image that starts on 11  ;D I guess Im pretty stupid for not realizing it before now. I just kinda rushed through the chapter so I could "publish" it.

Anyway, I was able to merge the two pages, but had to pull some Clone Stamping action in Photoshop: [link=http://www.skullknight.net/manga/199/trees4.jpg]Click here[/link]

great job I'd say.  I had figured those were "siamese twins" pages.  I would hope that the manga was published in its original right-to-left read-mode in my country -- I think it flows way better this way (also, quite a few things do make better sense, like Casca's brand being on her left (heart) side and not just everybody being left handed heh  ::)).

btw, which program do you use to colorize the manga?

I use photoshop. I just lasso a selection and use image/adjust/hue-saturation to make it whatever color I think looks correct. Its tedious but its quicker than other methods.

Badass chapter, did anybody else think it was cool the way Casca’s and Guts’ brands reacted, but without  bleeding or causing pain (as far as I could tell)?

P.S. All hail the Ice Lord, thanks man.

Guts didn't say anything but Casca did touch her brand.. I think. Great job with the merging Walter! Can't wait until that page is colored, and if you don't I'll do it for fun anyways ;)

Guts didn't _say_ anything, but he _thought_. ^^
According to him, it was a "different feeling".
