Citadel Chapter 2 Page 9

Like a bang-bang play at first with the batter running full speed with their head down…this is over faster than one could make the call. No replay here however, our mystery girl was out, dead-to-rights.

I actually meant to add some additional line effects in Manga Studio, but realized that on my last HDD Re-Format, I forgot to re-install the program. D’OH. The print edition will have many changes and finishing this page will certainly be one of them! Until then, here’s the GreyScale version! Enjoy!

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

Continuing to edit the original Sonic Saturdays pages, this second page just needed a few Badniks added in and some slight dialog changes. Just 1 more to edit and one old one to repeat sans any changes and we’ll be ready to get into all new material! Exciting! Next page is going to take a LOT of work to do however…I can dooo eeet tho! :D

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

This final 2-page spread appears at the center of the book, where the two stories converge. What mysteries lie in this dark wood at the foot of the Emerald Mountain range? Amy, Miles and the three Silver Policemen will all find out next issue as what’s hidden deep beneath the towering boughs will bring back memories the world though best forgotten.

Citadel – Daikogen pg.16

Originally published at RKdia Comics. You can comment here or there.

As with the first page of Daikogen, my brush work really begins to shine on this final page. I’m clearly more comfortable and being much more bold with my strokes, textures and areas of black.

Amy’s just ahead of her pursuers every step of the way and manages to avoid a vicious attack by Hiro. Ryu regains his composure and the chase is on! Deep into the Forbidden Forest they will run, and what surprises await everyone this night. Come back next week for the TRUE Beginning of Citadel!

I hope you enjoyed Arcadia and Daikogen and I encourage you to get a closer look by purchasing a personalized copy from RKdiaComic’s Store!
Thanks for reading!

Citadel – Daikogen pg.15

The way I set up this page, one can easily miss or read over the last two panels of the middle tier, however I don’t entirely mind this. The actions represented in those two panels are supposed to be fast and indicate Amy’s ability to quick-draw and hit a far-away target with extreme precision.

Though persistent, Ryu may not have as keen a sense with The Source as his counterpart, the speedy Hiro. He pays the price for his momentary lapse of concentration and Amy delivers a furious strike, setting in motion the chase that will change her destiny.

The comic goes back to night scenes, a place Amy becomes very at home with, and I break out the brush again. I’ve gotten some odd comments about the rising text in the last panel, in future print editions I may edit it to a more normal reading orientation.

Not wanting to involve her trusted mentor and father figure, who she may know more about through the “Voice” than he may even know, Amy decides to run from the nosey Silver Police…or is she merely leading them on?

Enter Yaju, Ryu, and Hiro. Members of the Arcadian Silver Police…formed as a part of the truce with Daikogen after the 4-year war, these three warriors are assigned to keep an eye on Steven’s training facility near Alexandria and of course seek out those Illegally in the country, as Amy has been for most of her life. These three are more than just comrades however, and their hidden agenda will become much more apparent as the next chapter begins!
