Nekomimi at Smash 08 pg 1 by nabari Nekomimi at Smash 08 pg 1 by nabari
This was originally for the Smash 08 competition. But Yahoo mail decided to fail on me. I sent it on the midnight of 15/07/08 (Due date), but I got an email failure notice on the 17/07/08... orz Just one day before my birthday. Now I don't trust Yahoo. :O

Anyway, since I have it done, so I decided to upload it!

I seem to be more productive in July! :XD: Finished 5 pages (Max number of page permitted) of 4Koma in 2 days! This is exactly 2 years after my first 4koma ([link])! This time I bothered to go through the pencil lines in pen. Sometimes I feel silly for not using pen to begin with. orz The inking itself took me at least an hour each, just going through the pencil lines!

Ahhhh! I have an obsession with ears and tails! ^^;

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE THE COMIC (Copy paste from [link])

A long time ago, before the age of Akira, a pair of twins silently arrived on earth.

Cyrus and Skadi are the 27th Prince and Princess of a small green planet in the Ota Kuu galaxy, called Sumashcomianganimelis (or "Smash" for short.) The twins received a special mission from the King of Cosmos, to spread the unique culture of the Ota Kuu galaxy to other planets and promote future tourism to their galaxy.

It wasn't going to be an easy mission, and they soon realised they had no idea where to start! The two travelled to Earth, curious about this small green and blue planet. Little did they realise that everywhere they went, they left a piece of their culture with the people they met and the places they visited. Images and encounters which would inspire many artists, writers and animators for years to come. Far beyond their expectation, the mission became very successful.

The twins decided to tour around the world to investigate the secret behind their success. Unfortunately, they were separated and lost their way in Australia; how would they find each other now? Having lost contact with each other, Skadi soon thought of a plan to find Cyrus: if she could organise an event that could gather all the anime related people and objects in Australia, Cyrus would be there too!

She named the event SMASH!, after the planet they lived in, so Cyrus would know he could find Skadi there.

And now...

Skadi and Cyrus have been gone from their planet for a while. The King of Cosmos is beginning to worry about the state of their mission, so he has sent one of his trusted subjects to find Skadi and Cyrus and see how they are progressing with their quest to spread the culture of the Ota Kuu galaxy.


Sorry for the lengthy comment! ^^; You'll find out why it's a carrot spaceship in the end... I hope! :XD:

I just noticed the bunch of manga you put up. Before that, I thought u were alittle inactive with the uploading. But not so! Maybe i need my eyes checked.

Anyway! 5 pages in 2 days is crazy @_@ Congratulations. It really is a shame you couldn't send it through.

I'm gonna read through all your mangas tomorrow coz of curiosity. Also because, I've been toying with the idea of working with someone on a manga, suiting a storyline to their style. Though it might take months to figure, (what with jobs and all) would you be into that sort of thing? Doing a collab where you drew everything, leaving most of the writing and story to someone else?

Anywayz, Love your work =) Hope to see you at Smash. Oh and, Happy bday.

:nod: I have been inactive for quite a while, because the scanner comp died on moi! :cry: Got more to upload, but then again, I need :iconry-spirit:'s scanner.

LOL... for the manga deal. I suppose it depends on the story...? I mean, I don't really know how to draw things beside shoujo style. ^^; Moreover, I draw more of static images (insert images) and rarely draw manga. Besides, 4koma is not really manga. And each column has an idea that ends within 4 boxes.

Too cute~ XD The story of SMASH is really quite interesting and very original! It makes me very interested into your comic now (not that I wasn't in the first place lol) OwO

Perhaps it's because they made the story sound like a RPG? :XD: I was just about to upload the next page. :D

Good paneling!
It's too bad you couldn't send it!
