Seriously. I WANT A MOVIE OF THIS!!!! I would totaly buy it if I had the opportunity and cash!
Well written, thought through (as far as I can tell anyway), wonderfully executed and very capturing! I'm sucked right into it by the first frames. Just saw the first part and can't wait to see further into the story!

God damn.
I thought the previous one was it, but I found out there's more and it made me happy |D
That end joke was just excellent. I love your characters so much, and the way you write them is perfect.
AND YOUR DAMN ART UGH SO PRETTY I HATE YOU.
Good freakin' luck.

Congrats! Nice setup, and it works well enough standalone that I can only imagine how it would be with frames! Man!

Also, the ending. Man, that's...creative. It's been done before but not that often.

I like how cinematic your entries are!

Smallll nitpicks:

I'm not so sure I dig the translucent bubbles. Jury's still out on that one.

Fading-in text is cool, but you shouldn't have to page tab five times for each fade-in, otherwise it gets annoying fast. I almost feel like this could have been an animatic or a self-playing slideshow.

I feel like some bits of dialog could have been entirely cut out, or played up a bit more. Him realizing that he doesn't want to kill his goddess seemed a bit underwhelming.

Other then that, your work is ridiculously pretty. Good luck, but I'm pretty sure you're a shoo-in for Eden at this point.

Thanks so much for the input! The translucent bubbles are sometimes a pain to do, but I try to make them as opaque as I can by blurring the stuff behind. I'll probably continue them for consistency's sake, but I'll try to make them even more legible.

For the text, I really would have made it animated (I still might), but I'm still figuring that out. Flash isn't my home base, so to speak.

Storyboarding that line in particular was hard, and I agree with you there. If I'd put my mind to it, I could probably have come up with something better. :shrug:

That last panel is hilarious. XD

This. Is. Fantastic. I almost think it was completely unnecessary for you to even do this, because with just the first part of your prologue you had everybody swooning over Zalost... I was pleasantly surprised to find that you had done more. :la: Even so...

AKSDJALDJSAFHJK THIS IS FANTASTIC

...I don't know how you do it.

I like to see the unfinished-ness, though. It kind of gives me a hint on how to do things.

I'm glad you find those sketched panels helpful; that's really the most important stage. But the completionist within me cries...many tears. IT SHALL BE FINISHED!

The completionist within you is probably going to win Eden. Have fun, because my confidence is shattered by the stack of 52 new Eden deviations that I assume are amazing and take away all of my chances of making it into the first round. X'DDD

Pardon my angst. I should probably go to bed. >.>

Ehhh...this is actually my first one. ^^; But I do so love drawing comics and storyboards, so this seemed like a fun idea to get out and build story with some other artists--and meet fun people!

But hey...we're artists. Of course there's going to be procrastination! XD

Ooooh... Well! That's pretty darn inspiring, actually. 8D You should impart upon me some of your comic-making knowledge so I can practice and eventually know what I'm doing. Hyurr. Actually, I am watching you, so I could just hunt down some of your old stuff and see the progress you've made.
