The process demands its share of patience and becomes time consuming for someone who believes in perfection of the work. That slows down the overall processes a bit. I have tried to device some techniques/tricks to overcome the hurdle by creating few image files with major characters in them. Everytime some particular character is required, these files are taken for reference. All regular characters are there, Phantom, Diana, Rex, Guran, Mozz and Devil of course. The super stallion Hero has been very supportive by not giving trouble for his coloring, being as white as milk.
But a long story encompasses a lot many characters than these. Everyone cannot be given a place in the reference file. And therfore many times it becomes inevitable to peek into the back pages for coloring clues.
Nevertheless, the strip is now heading towads completion, and I feel happy to contribute something original to the comic loving community.
Presenting today the next five pages (page 56 to 60). Now only 5 more remains after this. In all probability the entire strip will be available for download this month only, and if possible, withing a week's time. Hope you have enjoyed the work. I am thankful to all those who have commented about the quality of the work with their own suggestions. It has helped me to look out for more options and make the pages better. After finishing the remaining 5 pages, I'll work on corrections to the previous pages also. Still any suggestion regarding that work? Most welcome. Please convey your feeling how could it be improved further.
Will be making a detailed post with next (final) set. Till then you can enjoy the current pages. In the last three pages here, I have introduced something new again regarding the backgrounds. Let's see if you can notice that.
