Okay,I'm not sure what I'm trying to do by posting such an entry,but everytime I'm toning the pages this question is echoing on my mind and I'm telling myself that I'd do a journal about it,but later I give up...So I'm finally doing it.

Am I actually just spending my time messing the pages up?


Whenever I'm toning,I constantly think:
-I'm using way too much tone and making the page suffocate.(which is more of a fact than just a thought)
-The page looks boring and it's becoming harder for the reader to get a grasp of the surrounding.(especially the corridor scenes)
-I should just leave the page untoned.

THAN,the next barrage of thoughts come:
-The lineart is too boring to leave it untoned.
-The reader will not get a grasp of the atmosphere without tones.(like the house being dark in this scene)
-Most of the manga use screentones,so without the tones I'll be skipping a step of the process.
-Without tones,there is a bigger risk of people skipping the work for it'll look too simple.
-Plus,running from something you cannot do properly will prevent improving on that matter.


Anyway,I'd like you to have a look at this comparison,and state your opinion:

Which of these are easier to understand? Or which would you prefer?

Well,I suppose there's that too.
I've been doing commissions for in-game money for that game Elsword, real-money commissions for some other guy which I can't post here because he's selling them =P
I've been scribbling of course but nothing major.
