More than a year has passed since I have started this manga and I still go overboard with speedlines.

And now this is the moment where you must suspend your belief because the following fight scenes are staggeringly ridiculous. :(

Staggeringly ridiculous ??
What !? She's got strong knees ! =P

No, seriously, everything is fine.
Even the overused speedlines. X)

@FireBorg: Oh, but it hasn't even started yet! Eventually when the rest of the chapter (and the following one) is uploaded, you will shake your head at me and say, "D., these fight scenes are ridiculous! What exactly did you smoke to believe that these can work?" (Interestingly, yesterday I attended a seminar about dangerous drugs. We weren't allowed to try the drug samples brought by the speaker though, lol)

@archiloquy: Ohhh and you sneakily tried ! I can clearly see the relation now. lol

@FireBorg: My motto when it comes to fight scenes is this: it's okay if it's not realistic, as long as it's pretty. Which does not bode well for my part :(

@archiloquy: The hell you talking about?

That looks amazing :D

@archiloquy: Well. . I don't know how exactly "realistic" can be applied in this context XD but, "pretty" seems fair enough.

So yeah, exaggerated speedlines ? What's that ?
You can never exaggerate those. *sage nod*

@FireBorg & @Rage: I meant the sequence of movements, and to an extent, physics. But I know nothing about physics, sooooo yeaaaahhhhhhh >.> Forgive me if I am shallow when it comes to action scenes, hahaha

@archiloquy: You don't need physics in a manga, silly :D
But I guess from that transition it's kinda strange, if I think of the blade as close to her on the 2nd panel. She would need to kneel to the front, she would get an impulse forward, thus [spoiler]slicing her body in half[/spoiler].

just like martex evolution!!

@Rage: Yvette slowed down her speed using her feet, then swiftly brought her knees forward and made her body limp so she falls backwards faster. Kind of like what Fox did in the movie Wanted, during the train sequence. I don't know, it looked better in my head lol

hmm... I think that last panel would look better from the side instead of from above. It looks like it hit her to me, but it's meant to go over her, right?

Also, I think it's good to have pretty fighting stuff. When I try to make fight scenes, they end up both unrealistic and ugly. ^_^" But, if it's pretty enough, I doubt people would care if it makes sense.
