:star::star::star: If you have issues with Flash and cannot read the comic by clicking the swallow buttons, try one of the following solutions:

1. Click on the green arrow download button on the right side of the dA page,
2. Or change to a different browser (like Firefox),
3. Or update your Flash player at [link]
4. Or right click with you mouse, then select ď play Ē, but you might have to do this with every page.

Chapter 1 Bonus

Chapter 2

:w00t: Hereís the first chapter of Knite! :D I hope you all enjoy! Thereíll be about 7 or 8 more chapters to go so Iíll be super busy as usual.

Translations to other languages can be viewed here :iconknites:
If you are interested in translating Knite, please read this [link] Thank you!

Iíll post a few pages of the scriptless jpeg version onto dA everyday until the next chapter comes out. I was able to finish Ch1 in roughly a month over winter break but I'll need to slow down now that Iím back at college and I have to work on commissions to pay for college XD

:heart: BIG THANKS to :iconneneno: my Art Major friend, for proof reading the script and critiquing my drawings. Also BIG THANKS to my best friend, Leah, who helped me with the story plot, and my roommate, :iconmisosouper: , for fixing my typos XD. Last but not least, BIG THANKS to :icongo-devil-dante: for her awesome Flash tutorials that taught me how to make this comic possible! :D :hug: :heart: :love: I love you all!

Everything was drawn in Paint tool SAI, the textures were added in Photoshop, and the comic was put together in Macromedia Flash.

PS If you haven't already, you can also read my first one shot comic

I am amazed by your work. I've never read a flash comic before and I'm sure this one will leave a lasting impression on me. I got absorbed by your idea while reading it.
Your characters have a really beautiful design and your way of coloring the pages and illuminating the dull and depressing darkness, turning it into something full of hopes and dreams, is very unique. I can almost smell the polluted air and feel it in my throat.
And the intensity of the brighter colors took my breath away, while at the same time being my anchor in that grey and depressing world. The radiant red is especially captivating.
Really, it's unlike anything else I've come across so far.
Am I right when I say that the overall use of colors mirrors the coloring of a swallows feathers? The thought came to mind after seeing the kite - and I love the idea so much.
Your story charmed me both as a reader and an author. It had everything I needed: natural interaction of (thoughtout and likeable) characters, incredibly good pacing and, most importantly, feelings (both sadness and joy and every nuance in between).
I'm eager to read more, so I'll check out the second chapter as well.
Awesome work, keep it up! :)

A truly masterpiece of art... I felt like something stung my heart... This is really beautiful, in so many many ways that, let's say it's typical, but I really can't find other words to say. I can't express enough my feelings for this. Gotta read the next ones tomorrow! (cause I got to sleep now)

Thank you for the inspiring story Yuumei-san.

I  love this so much. It was so beautiful and inspiring in its own way. It was both emotional and beautiful, and nothing can match something like this. Not ever.

This is beautiful! I love your liquid colouring style. The colours and intensity of the values really draw the eyes in *-*
