too early, too late by ElsonWong too early, too late by ElsonWong
Sometimes life doesn't always go according to plan, especially when there is a love relationship that seemed almost perfect for a couple like these two.

One wasn't ready and the other wasn't patient enough. I'm sure that this web comic series that is Bittersweet Candy Bowl (written and drawn by the talented :icontaeshilh:, site management and editorals by :iconsuitcase: ) will enlighten me on what I've missed out in high school - the teenage romance, drama, bad times, fun times and friendship.

I cannot wait for the book to be available for print, I've yet to read the series in full till this day because I'm being very patient with the story. I want to appreciate this beautiful story about two childhood friends who grow up together and face many untold tales of their time in school - a time where many things can happen to young kids, for better or worse.

To Veronica and Oliver, it's been long overdue for me to draw fan art of Bittersweet Candy Bowl, here's the start to many more in future. *thumbs up*

Until i saw this pic about 12 hours ago, I never knew what bcb washisme interesed and i read everything i could from the begining to the end of what is up right now.

but the thing that stifles me about this pic, is that is in a VG cats group submition. Why? It's cool, and all. But its strange to me.

You really captured the Heart of what BCB is all about, and it shows in the colors and in Mike's and Lucy's expressions!!
I like the Wind & Snow effect you gave to Lucy's panel, seeing as how much she likes cold weather.
The most expressive element of this Piece can be found in the eyes, and to me that's one of the most important places you can target to convey the feel of a character's Emotions and Personality.

I started reading this series thanks to Knux's recomendation of good webcomics out there, and I for one can say that it DOES NOT disappoint the readers.
I highly recommend it to anybody who's into Drama, real-world situations, and a tale of star-crossed lovers.

Incidentally, if you want to heighten the Mood and Feel of the series from a Musical point of view, listen to Weezer's "I Just Threw Out the Love of my Dreams" from "Pinkerton: Deluxe Edition".
I for one believe the Lyrics capture the Theme in an excellent way.

Man it has been ages since I've commented on one of your pieces but I figure this is a good time to pop back into your work, partially because I love the webcomic you made this for.

I think the strongest thing about this one is it's simplicity. There isn't many tricks being used to make it a wow piece, it's just good simple imagry. Like Webdog mentioned, you really captured the BCB style with the backgrounds, which is really nice for the piece. The emotion in this is really good too, particularily in Mike and Lucy's eyes.

There isn't much more I can think of critique wise, but I have to ask one question. Who are your favourite BCB characters? Personally mine are Mike, Daisy and Amaya. What about you?

I still feel kinda bad that you're waiting for the book because it is in no way the complete collection of the series :-[ hahahaha

and depending on its popularity yeah i don't know when the next book will appear aaaa

Anyway, this is quite lovely! I do like how you made Lucy all bluey in the shading while Mike is kickin' it with the warmer colours. It's good you're letting the background affect their look which is appropriate! No blanket shading, etc.

Thanks so much for this! I posted it on Candybooru to get more people to look at it :O

Bloody hell! I just knew something didn't look right on Lucy's eyes... XD I've made some minor changes that make her look more authentic to the original, notice the changes from old and new? :D

Thanks Veronica! :D

And man I went through some of the first pages of your earliest work the other day, boy what a big difference! XXD Not to say that your old work wasn't good, it's just amazing to see how change there is in terms of artistic, paneling and narrative styles from past to present. :)

Man the book had better be ready by X-mas or I'll get Santa to hunt you two down... *SHOT* XXD

Aahahah, I kinda knew that was coming! Is amazing the "collection" of fanarts that you are doing in different digital tools.
One interesting thing that you did there is that you made the background in the way that Veronica does, making very loyal to the series's current composition!
Aw these two troublemakers! I seriously don't understand Lucy very much, there's times that I see her as a complete ungrateful bitch and others times (like in the current chapter) as someone to give pity. Dunno, is she and Augustus, I don't get them, XD
Mike is basically the only character that didn't got teen issues at all, so for some reason, it makes him the least interesting character, lol (and seems one of the most hated too)

Great job in the pic, surely she will love it!

Nice work Elson. I love your use of layers. You really captured the BCB feel here. The paper-cut style backrounds really drew it all together for me. Also I like how you gave the two opposite lightsources. It feels metaphorical to their conflicting ideals.

Hey, very 1st BCB fabart from you and looks great! =D

And yeah, buddy, we're all been there, highschool and all, we weren't exactly popular with chicks and we were too shy to try, so we ended up getting hocked on ones on internet. XP
And from another side of the world even. XD Hehe, well, atleast somebody got laid. :iconpauloplz: Tho considering what you were entangled with, one mite consider it to be a P-word, which I cannot utter here, cuz somebody mite flame the blazing heck out of me or get me banned. ^^; So no offence, ok?
Lol, okay now I'm starting to sound like freaking Paulo, who's boasting to Mike. XD

Still, great job, bud! ^^ Tho from some reason the way Mike is stairing, just doesn't feel right for some reason.

I love this Web-Comic a lot--I look at it every update, and try to read the voting ones too. ^w^
