  1. I have a question for you guys. I am currently 4 hours into the game. Before starting the remake, I played the first 4 hours of the original Dragon Warrior 7, then saved after the first battle (yup, took me 4 hours to reach it, 'cause I just love talking to NPCs and party chat) and decided to stop and wait for the remake to be published in the west. I couldn't help but notice how much they changed the intro in the 3DS version. I loved the first 4 hours of DW7, while the first hours of the remake made me feel like an idiot. :/ I understand why they felt like removing all the puzzles so that people could reach the first battle sooner, but I'm also afraid that the game could keep doing this with other parts of the game. So, my question is: does the remake ruin change more than just the intro? Should I stop and play Dragon Warrior 7 instead, then pick up the remake after I'm done with the original?
  2. Natural, flowing lines are the reason why I'm absolutely in love with Hayao Miyazaki's drawings (http://i.imgur.com/079qyM9.jpg), so I definitely know what you're talking about. However, I feel like there's something more to those drawings of yours other than naturality. Kudos to you!
  3. I like all of your drawings, but somehow I really, really love the older one (Grete and Alus). I also checked your blog and loved the drawing with Krift and the puff puff one (:'D). I guess it's because of the japanese artstyle and the heartwarming colors.
  4. It took me 9 months to notice your reply... I'm very sorry. There's a chance you might have forgotten about this completely, but I'll answer anyway. I made them with a 3DS. A standard size one up until this drawing https://d3esbfg30x759i.cloudfront.net/pap/WVW69iZjid8ZdryJbq Starting from this one, I used a New 3DS XL, and things got waaay easier. I didn't get that many yeahs (you can check my Miiverse profile here: https://miiverse.nintendo.net/users/JereMii_91/posts),but what matters is that at least one of my drawings made it to the popular drawings board (made up of 6 drawings) for almost two weeks straight, and they were the first weeks after DQ8 3DS launched in Japan. So, basically, a developer checking Miiverse during those first weeks would have noticed at least one drawing containing English text. I'm sure it wasn't really much, but that's all I could come up with.
  5. @Yangus I'm being serious, here. Can I have an autograph from my favourite bandit? Anyway, I'm a big Studio Ghibli fan, and Howl's Moving Castle might be my favourite one, yes. It's up there with The Wind Rises and Totoro, haven't made up my mind yet. @Hawkeye Thank you for your support! There will be at least 4 more chapters after the second one, 15 panels each except for the fourth one, which is very long at the moment (major plot-twist!). The idea is to keep this going until these games (DQ VII and VIII) make it to the west... But I don't know if I can keep it going forever, if you know what I mean. Sigh. @HeirToRoto Finally, somebody noticed! Will other people notice, too? Find out next time on Dragon's Den comm-okay, I should stop this. @Awesomeinblue That's some pretty cool info you got there, thank you for sharing!
  6. Apparently I've reached the maximum number of images allowed in the opening post... So I opened a new topic and tried to post chapters separately. The problem is, when I try to post more than 12 pics in one reply, an error pops up telling me that I'm trying to merge too many images. So I couldn't post Chapter 2 in one single reply. I tried splitting Chapter 2 in two different replies, then, but it ended up being merged without any problem. What I mean to say is... I have no idea what I'm doing. Can anybody tell me how to proceed?
  7. Wow, I really love those drawings, Cesar! @Plattym3: either that or chainy jeans, I guess. ... Yeah, that wasn't fun, I'm sorry. Anyway, I hope to see some more drawings from you people!
  8. Thanks! I've written the script for 86 more panels, I hope I'll be able to start drawing them soon.
  9. I love Akira Toriyama's poop-pose, it's one of his classics! Glad you guys liked it, anyway. I might submit another one before the end of the contest. A very simple drawing, like this one, because I haven't got the technology nor the knowledge needed to advertise the game (never played it) at the moment.
  10. Grazie, Madrigal, sei molto gentile! You reminded me of a nice song and made me start the day the right way. I'll do my best!
  11. Here it is! Sorry for the *very* bad resolution, I drew it on my 3DS using "Colors!" and I had to download it from the online gallery in order to post it here. Atm I do not own a PC, so I cannot upload the better quality version yet. Resolution wasn't great at all, by the way. Had a lot of fun, though! P.S. Not sure if you could call this an advertisement. I want these games so badly I can only think in terms of characters needing to sail for the west. :/ I guess it's time I sailed to the east instead.
  12. Thank you so much for your feedback, En Garde. I'm afraid my English is not good enough for this, many panels probably sounded very weird to you. If you or anybody else reading this topic want to give me a hand with the dialogue via PM, that would be much appreciated. Thank you for your support, anyway. P.S. I realize panels 10 to 14 from Chapter 1 ended up being a real mess, probably because I was unsure about the English I had used in the first script. I'll try to edit those as soon as I get my hands on a PC. The original dialogue went like this: 10 - Yangus: "... Could it be a spell or something?" 11 - Jessica: "... Maybe. I've never seen anything like this before." 12 - Angelo: "What about this sailing to the west nonsense, anyway?" 13 - Jessica: "I think someone or something might be trying to lure us there." 14 - Jessica: "... Why, though?" Funny thing is I have a feeling that the first version was the better one, grammar-wise. Oh well.
  13. Chapter 1 is done! If you are reading this, please give me some feedback: was it hard to read? If the answer is yes, was it because of bad English or bad dialogue or both? Please let me know!
  14. 3 panels made it into the top 6 popular drawings today. At least one panel featuring English text has been in the top 6 since september 10th, I really hope to keep it going like this while the DQ8 community is still popular: I want them to know that we exist, that we love this franchise and that we want to throw our money at them as soon as possible. Anyway, chapter 1 is ending in 3 panels and I will need your feedback!
  15. Really, guys, thank you for your support! I do hope that Dragon Quest 7 will come here first, of course. I'm currently playing through DQV, so I'm looking forward to it. I will see what I can do, it's just that I know nothing about that game: I should read about it or watch some gameplay first.
  16. @Woodus: I'm sorry, I realize I haven't made myself clear: I thought that the "Quest for the West" contest required us to draw semi-professional art featuring Dragon Warrior 7 characters, so what I meant to say was that I would have been happy to enter the contest, but I couldn't because I had no way of submitting semi-professional Dragon Warrior 7 art. Of course I would be more than happy if you shared these comics! Feel free to do anything you like with them without having to give me any credit: these belong to the Dragon's Den community. Here are a couple things I would suggest, though: - Chapter 1 will end in a few panels, so I would wait just a bit more before sharing. - I like the purple logo, but I think the red Dragon Quest one would be better suited for this comic, as it is reminiscent of the Hero's bright red cap (Akira Toriyama did a wonderful job on him: red, yellow, blue and green work so good together that even Google decided to use them). @Cesar: Thank you so much for your detailed feedback and your support! And for the link, also. @Madrigal: Those are some very nice drawings! P.S. I will probably update very late today and likely with just 1 panel, I'll be quite busy.
  17. The title text drawing has just reached position number 1 in the "popular drawings" section. This means that if today Yugi Horii wants to go and check fans' drawings on the Dragon Quest 8 Miiverse community, the first one he'll see is "Dragon Quest: Sail to the West". If you have a 3DS or a Wii U, please consider joining me in this quest!
  18. Cool, I want to see it! (I cannot read it, as I don't speak Japanese)
  19. @Madrigal: my native tongue is Italian, my heart is sadly not. I like traditional art better, anyway. Where can I see yours? @En Garde: thank you so very much for your support, I'll try to keep it going as far as I can! Quality will probably have ups and downs: I'm drawing this from a small New 3DS, and I'm finding it very hard. I won't always have a lot of time to put into it.
