AstralCross - Ch 3 Pg 21
Well, that ghost is mad :o And it's safe for the villagers to come on outside.

In case it's too vague, the monsters were trying to free Ganondorf (who is currently in prison), but again, Ganondorf's not the big bad...

So who is the bad guy? Here's a hint and fun fact: Poes thrive on hatred.

NEXT: ...

Aaaand fight's over :D And I'm done with drawing monsters for now!

Remember the end of chapter two, when I said Kira knows how to fight? She was trained by a professional martial artist and swordsman since she was a little kid (on her mother's suggestion). I looked at images, watched videos, and brushed up on my tae kwon do to portray that here and on that page as well as I could by using real-life martial arts stances.

Hey, everyone! I owe you guys an update. I just came back from vacation a few days ago; we went to the Smoky Mountains, Dollywood and Splash Country, Gatlinburg, the Tuckaleechee Caverns (and drank pure mountain water, which was tasty =p), went go-karting in Pigeon Forge (one of my cars had a flat tire :X), went fishing with Dad on Father's Day, and went horseback riding. We even saw black bears! But we weren't in any danger. It was fun, and very much needed. Sometimes, you just need to leave your hometown for a while, you know?

I did manage to see E3 before we left. And I hate to say this...this is the gamer in me talking, but I believe Sony won yet again! Oh, I'm looking forward to StarFox, and I'm curious about the story of Tri Force Heroes, but...

That Final Fantasy VII Remake, Tho!!! :faint: AND Kingdom Hearts 3!! That game looks so pretty :iconpppplz:

To be honest, I expected the Remake, I knew Square-Enix was going to get around to it eventually, but I wasn't expecting it to be this soon :o I may have to get a PS4, but it won't be until we see release dates.

But see, I looked on the FF Wiki, and Nomura said that the story of the Remake will be different from the original. ...This scares me. The one thing that scared me about the Remake was that they "botch" the story, which was one of the most memorable aspects of Final Fantasy VII, and why it's still popular. I don't know. We'll just have to wait and see... Hope for the best, but expect the worst :nailbiter: 

Speaking of games...I have a question for fellow Nintendo gamers, specifically those who have played the games I'm about to mention.
Nintendo had a sale celebrating E3 on some of their VC games, and The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap was one of them. Stupid me didn't get it before I left for vacay, but it's still under $9. As much as I keep hearing about Vaati, I'm curious. But then...

Earthbound Beginnings, eternally known as Mother. 'Nuff said.

Which of these games should I buy first? The Minish Cap or Mother?

Also, I'm going to say that the next update to Astral Cross is going to be big. Like five pages all at once. The story behind why is because I had finished the next three pages, but after looking at the pages I finished up to that point, the order and flow didn't look right, nor did it make sense. It felt rushed. So, I rearranged the order of the pages to where it didn't look all over the place. The drawback was that I had to do more pages before those finished three could be submitted. Sad thing is I was going to upload those pages before I left on vacay (sorry, everyone ^^;) I'm working on those pages now; I have the draft down, I just have to sketch them and work on them first.
And the reason the pages were taking a little longer than usual is because I was experimenting with Photoshop. I've been attempting to leave certain objects off the paper sketch and work on said objects from scratch in PS. It took a lot longer than I thought it would because I had the mindset of inking and coloring the scan first.
Also...I've had artist's block, brain farts, and I was working on my 2nd original comic :shrug: I wish I could say the update is coming before July, but there's no way that's happening ^^;

So, big update is coming! I'm refreshed after vacation, and please let me know if I should get The Minish Cap or Mother!! Stay gold, everybody! :iconskipplz:

Hey Kira, you have photo bucket right? How does it work. I mean do you just download it onto your computer or do you have to buy it. Either way since my Window's computer doesn't have internet connection I have to use my other computer which is a mac but don't have any art pages like microsoft paint to use on it.

Actually, I don't have Photo Bucket. Never used it.
Sharidaken Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015
Oh, then I guess then if you don't mind me asking, what you use for your art work?
hylian-maiden Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I use .7 and .5 mm mechanical pencils and regular printing paper for the sketches. And then, Photoshop CS3 and a Wacom Bamboo tablet for lineart, coloring, effects, etc.

Hello there! May I have your permission to share your Midna artwork on my Midna fan blog on Tumblr? Proper credit and a link back will be given, of course! No worries if not :meow:

Hi there! Apologies for the late reply. I'd honestly feel uncomfortable with my work on Tumblr, so sadly, I'd have to decline. But thank you for asking :)
Candy-Ice Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2015
That's totally fine! I appreciate you being honest with me :) Have a good day then :D
