So, it finally happened! It was a HUUUUGE struggle that spanned many months... I changed printers TWICE and therefore changed page sizes/guidelines TWICE (which took months to edit), I struggled to get a solid proof copy from the printer for a couple months, I nearly quit a few dozen times and flipped various tables in frustration...

BUT ALAS. I can finally mark this off my to-do list! WOOT!

Masquerade: Volume 1 is on sale now!! Pick up a copy here!!

Otherwise, you can read Masquerade online (for free):

@ Twelve Gates manga
@ SmackJeeves
@ Tapastic

Either way, I hope you can find some way to enjoy this first manga attempt of mine. Have at it~ And thanks for all  your support!!

Bert, these are my Watchman reference pics I used to create the characters for my book/pics/cover...even somewhat their personalities. However, now I have a great foundation for my manga characters.

Sidney Tamiia Portier my Delah ref. 67697
Jeremy London my Paul ref. Jeremy-London-299x538-21kb-media-444-media-0054[1]
Warehouse1 gal my Nelly ref. JoanneKelly3
Teeabu ref I can't find the pics he's between Keanu Reeves and another Indian/Italian guy. I even made up Teeabu's name after Keanu...they have the same sound. Click below...that's where I uploaded a lot of my pics of them for you.

Waaaaaaaaah!! That's so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can definitely see the similarities for them! Although Warehouse1 gal looks absolutely freestyle gorgeous, whereas all the Nelly pictures I've seen of her have her looking very rigid with a bun! Hahahaha! Those similarities I cannot see!! I need to see more of her, I think. *Sweatdrop* .....................HINT. *Wink*

:clap: THANKIES!!! Well, the deal is I love some of her expressions. She bring the character to life. Nelly's got spunk...the drawings I have right now of her are few and far between. But she's really prevalent in the written story and matches the Warehouse gal (she banters with Paul, which will be fun). Her hair is lighter red in my story, but she has a commanding presence like Warehouse gal (She tells off one of the main Alliance security men when he nastily tries to come on to her...she even at one point tries to slap Teeabu...for good reason...I mean we don't blame her! But she has a big heart, really a good gal.)
