I'm really proud of how the coloring turned out for this page. Perhaps the most diversity in color that I have ever used in this comic... well maybe with the exception of the crayon one but that's not a part of the cheesecake saga.

Anyways, who could be the mysterious person that intervened the strangling of cheesecake thief? O_o

Your coloring... Is so beautiful... Be it crushing tension, determined rage, grim lack of oxygen, a peaceful aura accompanied by a illuminating glow all of them excellent well drawn only showing your amazing talent as an artist in tons.

I like what you did with the red lines making them jagged bring the image of crushing along with a very tense hand.

The second panel is really amazing and I notice how you manage to show intensity without boldly marking lines but instead using a accumulation of thin dark lines to give off a unique and especially dark expression.

The third panel is truly sad as we are faced with the possibility of losing our beloved cheesecake thief who we have all grown to admire and love. The color blue amplifies the potential tragedy of the scene and less movement lines with looser arms help imply a losing strength with the drool going a sadly but good job at showing the how much damage the vengeful vice grip is doing to the poor thief and the leaking life slowly escaping.

Then as what I can only assume to be a peaceful stranger appears in a very blissful panel. Nicely drawn folds and big toe along with the shade the robe produces. I like the use of earthen tones which help denots a naturelike peace especially with the grass ephazinging such an idea.

The final panel is you victoriasly showing you are the true king of expressive contrast as we go from a surefire death to a surprising illumination of hope and peace that can save Cheesecake boy. Your shading in this regard is also done in the same regard as the secon panel but giving off a very well accomplised warm tone due to the lines not being clumped together as much. If told at the begining of this comic your shading would improve I would disbelieve for such a thing would be trowing lakes at an ocean but there is a notable improvement and control as you develop this webcomic. I loke how the light in what I can only describe as rubs on their face only to better denote its aura.

Looking forward to more =}

Man, that was one really long comment there Prank and now I don't feel cold any more just sitting in front of my laptop reading your really observant and very complimentary comment. who needs blankets when you have an aamzing comment to read infront of you?

Your very detailed analysis and your opinions about each of the panels (especially noting all of the things that I do) area really meaningful as well as helpful. Its so great so have someone be so observant as well as a great commentator such as yourself. Thank you very much for this comment. It felt like as if I was opening a big present for Christmas. :{D

@Jacob: All I can tell you is lots and lots of experimentation and lots o practice with shading with using only one color. then adding ball point pen shading to the mix.

@IDKC: Yeah I tend to do that with my comics as well as my animations.. most of the time. I just like how I'm able to tell a story or convey a message of a feeling without using actual words. And haha now that you mention it, it reminds me of that scene too.:{B
