This week's vote incentive: a colored sketch of Iavar's wife, Kiell.
PLEASE READ- I'm planning on taking a hiatus during the month of August so I can make sure and get everything done that needs to be done before I have to go back to school. BUT since just not posting anything is all-around boring, I'm going to post reader Q&As as fillers. It can be any type of question (as long as it's, y'know, clean/appropriate), and as many questions as you want. You can ask me, the main characters, the minor characters, the random extras, or even characters that haven't been seen/officially introduced. Answers will be in the form of spoiler-free doodles/strips. Sounds fun? Ok. Thanks. If you don't want to read anymore that's fine. ;P
About the page- I'm pretty happy with how that deer came out, since I have no idea how long it's been since I made a serious attempt to draw a deer. This one's sorta based off a mule deer (tons of them around here) and pictures I saw a while ago of what I think I recall being a red elk, but I don't remember. I don't think Iavar's arrow is supposed to be as bloody as it is on the bottom, but I've never had the chance to be on a hunt with my dad when he gets something, so I don't know. And I'm super excited, because this page marks the last scene change of the chapter. There's still a short time skip and about 50 pages left to go, but everything else happens right here, near the river. :D
Theorah: Haha, yeah. Of course, it's not exactly hard to annoy Iavar...
Minotaurgirl: XD If they don't watch out, they definitely will. I've never given much thought to what it would be like if I personally were a centaur. I think I'd get annoyed like Iavar if I were asked to be ridden too many times, although having an extra set of limbs would surely be a plus. A centaur pony would be adorable!
I hope for his sake that's not a buck (though going by the antlers, I'd have to say it is) because bucks are a total pain to gut and clean with their musk glands and all, and this is coming from experience. Does are much easier to gut. You pop one of those musk glands on a buck, and yeek...it's awful.
Being asked to be ridden too much would get annoying...but you could always kick a few people and that'd probably put a stop to it. Plus, hooves! Hooves are always awesome! :D
Bummer - all caught up. Now I've got to wait for pages. *sigh*
Sparky - that could be why he's looking all pensive. But I expect as a Master Hunter he's used to working around glands and such. More likely he's missing his wife. Or maybe he's saddened by the hiatus...
