What caught my eye was your decisions about level of detail. Where to put fully drawn windows and where they just become suggestions of windows. It really adds a sense of depth and creates focus.

oh and one more thing that crossed my mind now that we're talking about adding text later... just another example how the creators clearly think the art is enough to carry them - why would you post an unfinished work online? It's like: "hey the texts aren't important but look how good the art is"
Same as introducing a new sports car without the tires: "Well it's still in progress but look how pretty it is!"

But the book will be sold with empty speech bubbles... that's the concept !

mirin' hard the city view 10/10

tho I'm pretty sure I wouldn't buy this if I saw it anywhere. Based only on this one page I'd say the comic itself seems dull and leaning only on the art (which is great), but you gotta have a good story too

I'm pretty sure that they'll add the text later. o3o

A lot of comic processes don't actually write the text until the last stage, according to vhat I've seen and vhat my uncle has said about the comic making process. o3o

But still: what I said earlier

Except that you can't possibly know what the story is...

Unless "dull" is anything not covered in tattoos and explosions.

Exactly. For all we know, the dialogue could go along the lines of:

Waiter: Would you believe it? I just killed a man with my bare hands.
Gentleman: I'm not sure that's true.
Waiter: I cleaned it up.
Woman: Blood can be such a bother to clean out of clothing. Take his word on it though, he's a pro at it.
Gentleman: I see... So that man you killed...
Would it happen to be my father?

Hahah cool! I instantly thought of him when I saw this, but I wasn't sure if you liked him (or knew him), so that's why I explained that I meant it as a compliment ^^'
