I just finished my whole series sort of alike to initial D - Speed Legend.
It's my own story but unlike Initial D, street racers in my series are damn young!
around 18 to 20 starting.
The hero in my series never started out as a really great driver, he was a total noob when it comes to street racing. In fact, he's just a spectator most of the time before he held the wheel of his NISSAN S14 SILVIA K's Aero (S14_2). Luckily, he adapts quick.
But, his primary car is a NISSAN SKYLINE GT-R V-SPEC2 R34.
The story is great! I've received good comments, reviewes and orders from my school mates & teammates. I hope there will be some who are interested with my work. I'll post some images soon.

see our team profile: Team Noyzee tribe also. and send us an e-mail! grin2.gif

The story is titled (as said above) Speed Legend.

PREFACE:

It's the story of a normal late teen-aged boy who was fond of racing in general but never gave the chance to experience it by himself. When he reached the proper age, he tried it and met his first high-skilled opponent while driving down Myogi's DH in a aged Nissan S14 aero K's. Through that rival, who was named as the undefeated Myogi's Knight, he improves drastically and realizes his talent at this. Every race he takes, which looks impossible or discriminating, his talent starts to bloom and after his big debut at Myogi, which ended up being his home course, word has spread and expects him to visit their home courses for a challenge to see how great the kid is. The once-defeated Myogi Knight, who turned out to be Kyosuke Katsumaru; well known around the Northern Kantou, would help him realize this moment even if in the end they'd still be bitter rivals.

Side stories include love and comedy in moderate amounts in the story. The hero, Tomogashi Kitsumoro, would soon figure out what to do with this unforseen talent that he just realized; whether he'd go pro or leave it as just a small part of him. He takes a choice and begins his glory only to see that his uncanny ability to adapt real quick on the roads would lead him to a place in the legend.

The rest would take place around the Northern Kantou Region, where a new generation of drivers would dominate one another and race after the spot to become one of the youngest legendary drivers.
--------------------------------------------------

The rest would be explained by comic series.
The prologue is posted and it would give you an idea of the character's inner driver.

Enjoy as you follow along the legend!

Hmm. So he's a rich kid that owns both an S14 and an R34 GT-R and can adapt at an extraordinary pace?

Well. I can't judge something without seeing it first. Seeing as you claim others enjoyed it, I'm interested in this.

So do post up those pics smile.gif

BTW, your sig is over the limit.

Text alone won't sate my hunger, man. Scan some examples up so we can see what you've done!

And, like Meteor said above, your signature is exceeding the height limit of 200 pixels. You need to edit it so that it conforms to the limits... or a moderator will do it for you along with a fine verbal warning.

Thanks for the warning Tessō. I'm working on that. and yeah! I'll post images of them real soon! Hey, I'm just a student... a high school student, okay? so don't expect too much. And plus, it's merely in lead. I only have time to color two volumes. the rest are lead but are good. Look out for comic shots of them soon! I'll post em' I promise.
I still have a quarterly exam so it might take a while. Wait for them at the 22nd of December.

Sorry. I'm not done with the pics yet. But I am almost done and ready to post 'em. Just a little photoshop left to detail. Anyway, additional info on the story outline:

No! He's not a rich kid

He happens to get his GT-R by chance... as a gift... from a rival... note: he's a fair player. he didn't internally wreck the R34.

As for his S14, it was a birthday gift from some guy when he was just 15; a guy whom he does not know fear2.gif . Obviously he didn't get his license yet so it just lays around his garage for 3 years or so. shifty2.gif

He's just a high school student so his racing style is very mediocre at first.
and more if you guys are interested. grin2.gif

P.S. I'll be posting the prologue AFTERMATH. So... it's more of after the characters are introduced.
Seriously, don't expect too much like a ID Fourth Stage drawing. dry.gif

Quite a good start. But there are a few issues.
1.What the hell? Drifting isn't as simple as just moving your limbs in co-ordination with each other (explained later in this post). And the whole "a single mishap'll kill ya" line seems a little too dramatic.
2.Lexus doesn't exist in Japan (just like how Acura doesn't exist in Japan). So the conversation about whether the Altezza was a Toyota or a Lexus shouldn't be here.
3.How does a "n00b" who "never started out as a really great driver" perform zero-countersteer drifts like that? (16)

And, I'll explain to you what I find wrong with the drift parts.
1.Even if you moved your hands and feet in co-ordination, that wouldn't immediately perfect the drift. Moving your limbs in co-ordination with each other isn't a super technique. It's a basic and always required technique. Without it, you can't even perform a low-speed E-brake drift right. It is certainly important for a driver to be able to do this, but it alone won't suddenly turn them into super drifters.
2.What's up with the countersteer? I'd understand if they were putting on a show. But if they're trying to race as fast as possible, they shouldn't be putting in that much countersteer (In an FR, more countersteer+throttle=greater angle=slower speed. The only exception is with the scandinavian flick)
3.The lead character is evolving far too fast. From simply powersliding to suddenly performing zero-countersteer drifts inches away from the inside wall. And it takes a lot of skill to perform a zero-countersteer drift like that. One has to be quite good at braking; shifting the weight to the front tires and slowing the car down while keeping just enough speed left. The steering has to be precise too as well as when the driver stops braking, where he/she goes zero-throttle and where he/she applies throttle for the entry to be successful. Then, the driver has to constantly manage the throttle. Keeping the car from gaining too much angle but at the same time keeping the slide going. And that's just the entry to apex. The exit requires precision as well.

But other than that, it's a great story. Keep it up smile.gif

to MattSAF1, didn't you read the previous post? don't expect much from the drawing standpoint. I'm just a student. okay? no hard feelings...

You got me there Meteor. I forgot to mention this is part-fiction so anything unanimous to the real thing, I could twist things a bit... sort of like a game or a low grade simulation...


as for your comments, it's a good analysis, for a critic post. I commend you for that. laugh.gif

anyway my own opinions for the first 3 comments, if you don't mind...

1. the lead character is a kid. so hearing that from another kid, who's a pro & well known at Myogi, would seem as a special kind of thing for him. Most of the people who read this at my school are powersliders and little kids este Initial D anime fans.
the lead character has the talent. an unconscious talent so OBVIOUSLY, he doesn't know about it at first. it's like walking. if you're the type who walks fast, you're at your destination quickly without you knowing it. again, unconscious talent.
and I don't seem to get the "i'll kill ya" mishap you're talking about. mind if you tell me where (which page) exactly? then I'll follow that comment up. grin2.gif

2. the girl's (Rikona's) father bought the car and her father goes abroad most of the time (that's why I didn't show the father at all). if there would be a side story (not mentioned) to this, it could be this: rolleyes.gif
The father went to Europe or the States. He saw a good looking car, the Lexus IS (Altezza). He decides to buy one for her daughter at Japan. He checks the web for anything about it and was unhappy of how the Altezza looks compared to it's foreign twin, the IS. He buys what looks good on the IS for the altezza when he buys one when he comes home at a local "pimping" shop or a shop that sells car surplus accessories. When he came home, he bought the altezza at some prefecture, placed the accessories and screwed the removed parts or kept them for himself. OR the dad just likes european interior design than ordinary japanese interior. The dad has an eye on the interior material.

3. like at number 1. He has the pure talent. He doesn't know it. as in 100% I-have-no-idea-type of attitude. he'll realize it sooner. in the latter part of the series. There are 17 other pocket-sized volumes to follow after this. this is just a prologue.
Oh, yeah; he has the supernatural sense of adapting to any situation; now this is the fiction part. Sort of like Initial D's takumi when he easily adapted to the gum tape deathmatch.

I was talking about the part where the pro was telling Tomo about moving his limbs in co-ordination. It seemed a bit too dramatic. There would be injuries from the crash, but I don't think the crash from a mistake during drifting would kill the driver (unless he fell off a cliff or something, and the guardrails aren't that fragile so I don't see that happening)

Anyway, as I said. It's a great story, so keep at it.

I'm still waiting for all the images to load. But from what I've seen so far, it's still going great. Keep it up. smile.gif

The writing is good, as is usual. A little comedy always helps. And a small bit of romance is good too. The new Retractable Tiptronic Manumatic does feel a bit over-the-top, but at the same times adds to the story.

Yes, we get it. It's YOURS and YOU made all of it so nobody steal it or YOU'LL stab them with a rusty spork, which is probably also YOURS as well so don't steal that either kthxbai.

Nice indeed. I particularily liked the "camera angles" - they are quite clever and dynamic, and make the scenes more interesting looking.

If you want to improve, I'd suggest you work on typesetting - while the text is readable, it is a bit difficult at times when the letters are close to each other and the words curve a bit etc.

I have horrible handwriting btw wink2.gif

Here's the last portion of my comics!
A conclusion to the Battle Between Tomo and Myogi knight's Kyo Katsumaru...
And a sort of, what I call, mood maker for those who are not satisfied with the ending and want more or wants to know the ending to this unfinished ending...
anyway... less small talk, here it is!

The driver of the Z is obvious... Tomo just didn't pay attention to it after his race so he has no Idea who it was at Akina/Haruna when he followed his crush's Altezza...
And that's the prologue for ya!
Oh! and the Tomo vs Hiroto battle...
i'll ask my friend to post the battle on youtube...
I used my old PS1 GAME - TOGUE MAX 2
Silver S14 vs FD...
as of now... enjoy the last portion of this prologue grin2.gif
