Yes- 2 pages! My late, unofficial, official New Year's resolution is to get 2 pages done a week- at least until college starts this fall. But I'm not even sure how I got 2 done this week, since pg 24 was a pain to just get all the flats in... hope it doesn't show too much. D: Btw- the blue/orange dragoness is Yochtee's wife. She doesn't have a name yet, and as far as I know won't even have a part in the plot. (and ignore the lighting/positioning mistake that I only noticed while working on pg 25...)
Replies! Thank you all so much- comments really help and make me want to work even more on it!
Aether- Yup, it is. Not so much with how they're praying, but the fact that they got the High Priest to do it.
Theorah- It's... oh stink, the book's downstairs. I'll let you know the author and stuff next week. Yeah, I agree. I think comics will be my preferred method of story telling simply because a picture is worth a thousand words, and the things you can get across in a comic (subtle expressions, body posture) aren't quite so easy to get across via writing.
Jedigal- Thanks! Dragons are the basic element of fantasy and therefore must be awesome. Thanks for telling me about the book too, btw.
Yukimi- Wow, thank you! Although I must admit that probably about 85% of the world has changed since I started working on this. Lol, and about the same with the plot. I'm glad it doesn't come across like that, though! Thank you so much!
Hmmm... I guess this would be the perfect time to go off on another long-winded explanation of part of the Ciudan culture, namely religion. I'll save some of it for another page or two though. So- in praying to Ciuda, anyone can do it, but you almost always do it like Sardos here did- namely, you ASK, not DEMAND. And even though they can pray on their own, most will go to the local temple (run by one or a few priests/priestesses) to pray. Not that they believe it will help Ciuda hear them better, but mostly for clarity of thought and peacefull surroundings. The priests/priestesses' jobs are mainly to look after the temple, counsel/instruct the Ciudans in what Ciuda wants them to do, and occasionally speak directly to Ciuda. The last is done rarely by any but the High Priest. Fun fact- Ciuda is never referred to by any pronoun, except that of direct address (you, your, etc.), because for some reason the Ciudans believe that referring to Ciuda with a "he" demeans him.
interesting stuff, its nice to have a few pages focused on how their religion plays into their lives. I can understand that about the pronoun thing, makes it seem like they are closer to Ciuda!
Yay for 2 page update! It would be great if you kept that up, I always enjoy reading KoP ^^
