Some things are more terrifying than being trapped in pitch darkness underground. But you gotta admire her resourcefulness.
I'm really impressed how you managed to make it work being that this scene is very dark. You still managed to capture Taran's expressions visible through the glow of Eilonwy's bauble.
Yeah it was a challenge; in my mind he's really in total darkness, but had to give myself some license for the sake of the medium.
Wow, what ideas do you have, Eilonwy??? ///O_O///
So how many skeletons will he see once he has some light? =P
Haha - ummm, yes, there will be some skeletons shortly, though not right away. Working up to it.
I just saw this! Welcome back! :D I hope you had a nice vacation :)
I did indeed! And another one coming up in August - I'm determined to get the whole chapter up before then.
Lol I just love her! She is who I need with me if I'm ever trapped in a hole lol!
She's definitely got a cool head in an emergency. I am so claustrophobic I'd have passed out a long time before this!
Damnit, girl, I'm trying REALLY HARD to die for a cause! Stop thinking of plausible ways to rescue me!
Nice work with the purple highlights (backlight? Proper terminology was never my strong suit). It really makes the browns pop a little more!
LOL. It's not really a death wish as much as his melodramatic tendencies.
I love purple shadows, especially with a warm light source.
I wasn't expecting anything all summer, so I was trying to avoid your site, but I couldn't quell my curiosity, and lo and behold... Several pages for me to read!!!! Yippee! So excited, hope there are more pages before you take a other break... You do deserve the breaks though ;)
Can't wait to see a certain artifact... \(^_^)/
Yes, summer is difficult to stay on schedule, and I do have to take several breaks, but I can't step away from it too long or I get grumpy, haha.
Great work as always. Frustrated Taran is the best!
So true. :)
It's a good thing Eilonwy can't see Taran's face right now, 'cause it's probably redder than a tomato.
Pretty sure that concept is utterly horrifying to him at this point.
