Right, so I pulled out of the previous GFX round due to not being able to finish on time. Since then I've been working on the image on-and-off and now it's finished only about a week late.

The picture shown below is half the size, the fullsize one can be found by clicking on the picture.

The full resolution pic (1280xs1024) is low quality...the high quality version is 1.1Mb and doesn't fit on photobucket xD Lame. Except I feel justified with the size...this was hand-drawn from start to finish.

I should have tidied up the sketchlines more, but wasn't actually intending to spend this much effort on it. Meh.

Rather awesome looking for a sketch~
But there's a lot of parts where I just can't guess how it is supposed to look.
Looking forward to seeing the finished version for sure!

The sketch died when I converted to .png ;..;

I have to keep this small, I'm going to upload it to photobucket and, like, well...it's going to be a sidebar so it can't take a year to load xD

Is this the end for Strop!? How come I'm still here!?

You haven't drawn the page after the next one, have you?
Or is it the next one again...

Oh the suspense!!

*Gasp*!

Noo!! If Strop dies, I'll have no reason to even come to this thread!

*Crosses fingers*

Crap, the waiting is killing me! (I hope that bird dies, although I usually have a feel for nature... <.&lt

Why do I really want to draw Strop lying unconscious on the ground and Kai standing by him, pointing and laughting... And Orlestat just behind him, tapping his foot or something.

If Strop dies, there will occur a paradox. Not paradoxing it all!

Bahahaha, I'm not going to make any attempt to alleviate your suspense!

Cue flashback while Strop is...gasp...dying!?!?!?!?!?

Unfortunately this is all I've got at the moment as I'm currently working on commissions, long overdue birthday presents and the MWT. Thus ends Chapter One of the Story of Strop! What could he possibly be remembering now!?

Stay tuned, for I will surely recount the epic legend page by page.

It pretty much dies unless I post an image a day. Threads belonging to any one user tend to do that.

I've got lots of stuff to draw and not much time to do it in, and also my internet is super limited! So this thread's gonna lie dormant a little more.

Next up: the next 20 or so pages of Strop's Blood round in the MWT.

Phew, right, here I am with my ten minutes of internet before I go...off again.

The next few posts will be dedicated to the 2nd round of the Mixed World Tournament- I'm already late as is so I'll get these pages done as soon as I can.

I'll repost the first two pages in order, just as a refresher:

Page 1

Page 2

http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq105/strawpony/mwtS2-title.jpg

I so desperately want to discuss the technique and the compositional theory I'm putting in practice here but I simply don't have the time, so I'll do it later or something.

Page 4

http://i438.photobucket.com/albums/qq105/strawpony/mwtS2-04.png

By this point I was dropping the quality a little but not enough to cut my working time by more than half.

Page 5

Ahem, yes. I couldn't help it. Excuse me while I go ban myself now.

On a separate note, the bottom-right frame is probably my favorite of this chapter thus far.

Page 6

Not my best page, I messed up the composition slightly in the middle section.

And now we're finally up to the action!

I do not care if you think this is good or bad, I think it is perfect. Hmm, should I throw velociraptor after him next time?
But, oh, how I liked those pages~~

That would make strop facepalm so hard.

I hope this is worth all the delay! I'll post as many more pages as I can do tomorrow, and heck, you can begin Masquerade if you wish, since you know what happens anyway. The sooner I get thinking about what I'll do, the better.

*presses fingers together in a villian kind of way* Oh, yessss....

I probably will, as soon as I have the time. There is not too much to write, but I have little time for it (I should be doing homework now, but...)

*hopes you maybe one day will finish them off in the same detailedness as the first pages, though they are still all obviously awesome*

I know what happens too.

Strop, when do you get back from that almost internetless place you are?
