So when I logged in to update, I noticed two things: 1- I haven't updated in nearly a month *headdesk* and 2- KotP has 40 fans. And like, last time I checked, there were 20some. And this is the first time I've update since. Well, COOL I say, and thank you to everyone who's added KotP, it was definitely encouraging to see that. :D With that being said, I think I'm going to go back to inking my pages. I LOVE the character/emotion/texture pencils give, but digital inks are SO nice and smooth, easier all around to work with, and make it nicer in the event KotP should ever be printed. Not to mention I'm much better at inking now, so I'm hoping for an all-around better look, but I don't know. Maybe I'll go right back to pencils. XD All I know is that, if you can wait long enough for it, the next page should be pretty cool. :) I hope I didn't make the text too small again. It's so hard to tell if it'll be readable when I'm typing it in Photoshop. Not to mention Iavar and Nic's expressions seem to be hard to see in these darker settings. What do you guys think?
AND HEY- I had the coolest thing happen to me last night- I was walking around town with a couple of friends and guess what? We walked past a gorgeous weeping willow. I stopped to look at it and said something to the effect that I was very tempted to break off a branch of it (because they're gorgeous trees and I have yet to live/be anywhere near one, and because there's a certain character of mine named WILLOWtail). So my friend breaks off the tip of a branch and hands it to me. Then, as we walk on, I look at the leaves and start freaking out (on the inside; outwardly I'm pretty much completely calm) because the greens from the willow tree are almost the exact same colors as Willowtail's fur, and it hadn't been intended/planned like that at all! So that made my day. In addition to 4 college students geeking out over stuff in a toy store (not to mention one of my roommates is a totally fantasy nut, like me).
Oh, and random fact: That purple beasty in the 2nd panel is being ridden by a centaur, because those things are big enough to be ridden by a centaur, and not much else is.
B'aramin- Yeah, it was pretty cool. I got video of a chameleon trying to attack my camera. XD
Lil Sis- Totally. :D
Hehe such a bunch of colourful characters!
I think the expressions look fine, and theres so much emphasis on body language in your comics that facial expressions arent the only telling factors anyway ^^
Hey good to know you're enjoying college! ...geeking out at a toy store? Thats what going to college is all about! :P
And willow trees are lovely, I walk past one everyday along a canal next to my house ^__^ Is Willowtail's colours inspired by willowtree colours? I never thought about how his name is named after that before!
