BZG Book 4 Preview by sadwonderland BZG Book 4 Preview by sadwonderland
Preview from chapter 1 of Book 4 of Bizenghast. Book 3 will be coming out in JULY! (Seriously, so tired of answering that question...it's right on my website, y'all!)

I think the quality of book 4 will be my best yet. I gots mad love for new backgrounds. And Dinah has mad lockpicking skills, apparently.

Every time I start a new book, I learn something new about my characters. I don't know where Dinah learned to pick locks with a bobby pin. prolly the Discovery Channel. That's where *I* learn everything, anyway.

You are the creator of Bizenghast? That's so cool. I guess a whole ton of manga creators are on here. I love Bizenghast. ^-^ I miss Vincent, though.

u konw, youve improved A LOT since book 1. To be brutally honest, i thought your art in book 1 was beautiful, but quite messy. Now, it looks like everything's so much cleaner and more pleasing to look at. I love your gothy style and the way you play with lights and darks.

OMG!!! You're the Bizenghast creator?! :bounce: Woot! You find the oddest people on deviantart. I should of known it was you when I found the Alice Ringmaster piece. I absolutely love your manga series, oh please make an Alice in Wonderland series. I'd love you ten fold to what I already do. I know it keeps showing up in Bizenghast.

Alice in Wonderland is one of my great loves too, I had a Mad Tea Party for my 21st birthday. Best way to celebrate adulthood by proving your still a child. :dance:

Btw, I want all of Dinah's clothes. So getting the next installment.

I've been so curious about your manga series. I'd see it at borders and I'd flipped through one of the books. What's it about?

Got to tell you something.

I only found out about this Bizenghast (lets hope I've finally learned to spell it correctly) of yours just resently, all thanks to ~scpg89 and I was considering to order it from amazon.com or something, 'cause I live in Finland and it's really hard to get any manga here.
Okay, so I was shopping on monday and went to one of my favourite stores here, and automtically checked the comicbook section... and just guess what I saw on the manga shelf :D
The first volume of Bizenghast, all translated and everything! I was in shock, honest. Right now I love Tokyopop so much because of this. And of course I had to buy it and I already read it and I love it! Can't wait for the second volume!
Many hugs for you, you're amazing! *hug*

Gorgeous details. I wish I could shade worth a nut. Bobby pin lock picking has always been ingrained in my skull. Or maybe it's all of those movies with people picking locks. *shrugs*

The reasons I fell in love with Bizenghast in the first place were the amazingly intricate and detailed backgrounds and the complex, unusual and unique characters. I bow down to you in an 'I am not worthy' fashion. This is another masterpiece - like every page in the books. Fantastic use of perspective. I can barely contain my excitement about the third and fourth books. I am in awe of this. <3 :worship: :wow: :faint:

That sure is something... I'm not exzactly sure what's going on here, Dinah's all sneaky-sneaky, but, serious, this is really good, the Canopy and ceiling decoration are amazing and perefectly balanced, you've got some talented hands, Queenie!

I love your attention to detail and crosshatching skills. I think that was the part I failed in art class... but only because we had to use quill pens and mine hated me so my lines were always really thick and short. =_=,

Does Dinah watch Myth Busters? That shows awesome too! ^_^ (They blow things up. hehe)
