Winter p121 Sneak Peek by markcrilley Winter p121 Sneak Peek by markcrilley
Hi friends! Sorry the holidays took me away from DA for a while, but I'm back and excited to share another page from Miki Falls. The good news is Miki Falls Winter is in stores as of this week, so those of you who have been waiting to find out what happens to Miki and Hiro need wait no longer! Here's the direct Amazon link in case anyone would like to get it there: [link]

I think my favorite part of this page was actually the easiest thing to draw: The top three panels. I've removed word balloons from the rest of the page, but with these these panels there were never any word balloons to begin with. The pictures tell the story...

Hey, Mark, the other day I looked for Miki Falls Winter at my local borders, which has carried the other books, and they weren't carrying it. I'm just a bit confused because they told me that the book actually came out on December 18. Would you happen to know anything about that?

Anyway, thanks for your work on this series. I can't wait to get a hold of this book. ^^

My prediction from the three panels in the picture seem to tell me that Miki won't end up going with Hiro, but at the same token, he won't be with Raika either because she's just trying to toss Miki out of the picture so that Raika can have Hiro all to herself!

Lol...I doubt she'll succeed!

Let's see... Naming some at the top of my head is hard but: Black Cat, +Anima, The Wallflower, Pita Ten, Fool's Gold, Di Gi Charat, Et Cetera, Cowboy Bebop, etc. >>; I like Naruto a little but it's kinda... getting to the point where everyone likes it and no one thinks any other anime/manga matters. >>;

Beautiful as usual! I love it when the panels tell the story as opposed to the words - it's very effective here. Congratulations on the new book release :) I will have to keep an eye out for it, though I have yet to come across a copy of "Fall".

By the way, I tried your technique of using colored pencil for a detailed outline instead of ink. It's really versatile - I can see why you favor it :) Thanks for the inspiration.

Do you have a new project for when after Miki Falls finishes?

It's a love story between Hiro and Miki,Miki technically stalks the new kid Hiro and tries to be his friend but he is determined to have nothing to do with her because of some dark secret he's harbouring.They end up falling in love.That's all I'll say ;)
