@TNG & Ro: I will probably ask him what to nickname his character, as soon as he gives me his sprite sheet.Also, there is going to be a mini story arc to introduce half the characters as I said earlier.~Soran

@Hippopotomonstrosesquipeda: I'm surprised at how fast it was filled too. I was afraid it would be treated as 'just another chimoru comic', the whole look and leave. And yeah, a 'regular' name will probably help. :PApparently Easter is tomorrow... I think? So, Easter comic tomorrow, stay tuned...~Soran

(This is also the comic I needed Leraku early for since it matched his description so well...)Happy Easter,~Soran

I think the glow effect is missing on Ler's other eye. In the comics, you might notice that i usually apply glow effects to both eyes.

@Justax: Indeed, comic makers deserve no mercy.@Leraku: I originally was going to make the second panel where half of Leraku is shown, similar to the Inika commercial, but found out that your mask didn't when enlarged a certain number of pixels, so I abandoned the idea and just went with this one. and yes the other eye isn't glowing. I always thought the visor in his mask would reflect light, so I made it only in one eye.@Ro: 'Awesomely funny'. Have I crossed into a new genre of comedy!? I say! I'd like to thank the academy.@Boss: You have nothing to fear except fear itself.Thanks for the comments,~Soran

Leraku's mask actually has a visor of sorts inside it, and it is mostly clear - each side is just tinted very lightly, so the blue side looks light, light whitish blue, and the other side looks like a very light whitish red. His eyes are that color in that form, and as such they glow.

Something to do in my spare time since i'm sick, i guess.

Tah dah.

LER EDIT: Whoops. It was late in the evening and i was really tired [what with me being sick... again] so it seems i forgot the speech bubble in the animation, as well as the second panel.

@Leraku's Comic: LOL, I love the personalities. But why is the animation grainy?

This is also seen in my basic animations. Since it's not super-long at all, Microsoft GIF animator does the job and keeps the filesize down, so i don't need a flash document. (Plus, i'm not exactly experienced with sprite-based flash animation... yet.) The side effect of GIF animator is that it makes the files animated GIFs - losing the normal quality of .png files.Also, did anyone notice the subtle pun in the comic?

I use GIMP, it doesn't make the grainy effect. I do not have Flash, and have heard that it takes an INSANE amount of time to animate things. (Or perhaps it's just the number of frames, but I don't mind that, I have that problem with GIMP.)

I would have never noticed Arga's name's connection to wild savanna hoofbeasts if it weren't for everyone yelling about it. Am I really the only one who doesn't delve into the oddities of everyone's user names? Man, I'm some kind of weirdo.Also, where did you get the Miru for Ro?J-K out.

@Justax: Indeed you are odd. Actually, when I first saw his name in a comic, he didn't appear, he was just talked about. I don't remember what comic it was, but i thought they were talking about a giraffe. This comic is just showing what basically happened in real life (Though not in the same events).I made the Miru and the Kakama, and another mask for another kit which I won't say because I wish to remain anonymous. They're from an old kit of mine that I was making a few years ago. I basically gave up the kit because of certain things I couldn't get right. Every now and then though, I just use one of the masks I made (For instance Arga's front view mask which I didn't have until he gave it to me later) because it looks better then the standard chimoru kind.~Soran

A little backstory to my name which I have never revealed before: It was originally Arga, but when I tried to make a MOC of myself it had an abnormally large neck. So it was named Argaraffe. I don't understand why everyone always pokes fun at it, you don't know how many of your names I misunderstad. Overall, nice comic.

@Boss: Well with Arga's explanation it makes more sense.@Ro: He probably knew it was you because of the character sheet... The last panel is from a picture I made. I make edits every now and then of people because of boredom...@Arga: Never revealed before until now, in my topic? I feel so special. :biggrin:That makes a lot of sense now. I think the only reason people poke fun at names is for comedic effect regardless of the person's feelings. Thanks.Thanks for the comments,~SoranPS: I probably won't be able to introduce half of the Pgs, probably only 3. (I already introduced 2, so I am introducing 1 more. Who will the lucky person be...? I don't know.)
