ben_10mil – Surprise! 07

Here’s the seventh page of ben_10mil’s comic “Surprise!” translated, inked and colored by yours truly. In the original version this page and page six are presented side-by-side, but I’ve been splitting those double-pages up so that I can provide slightly faster updates (otherwise page five would’ve been the last page I updated here, and you’d only just now be getting page six). As always, the original draft is included below for everyone to enjoy.

So some of you may have noticed this site was down most of the night and into the morning (which is why this post is being made later in the day than usual). As far as I can tell this was a problem with my host’s server, which they seem to have fixed. Hopefully it won’t happen again.

Anyway, here’s the new colored page of ben_10mil’s comic Surprise! Like before, the original is included below.

ben_10mil – Surprise! 01

This is the first page of “Surprise!” a comic by ben_10mil. When I first posted this on the old blog I had a lot to say about it, but now I can’t remember it all. For this project I am inking, coloring, and providing an approximate translation from the original comic (posted below). For the translation I’m going for a more loose approach to try and keep the dialogue sounding natural, since just a direct translation from Spanish sounds a bit stilted or maybe even out of character.
