Whew! Made my deadline. :)
Multiple BS detectors going off here. Some internal and some...well, we'll see.
Aaah, finally a snap, been waiting months for that
Those of you who are board game enthusiasts like me, you might be interested to now I am working on a Prydain map for RISK.
OoO TAKE MY MONEY
Are you familiar with Sillysoft Games' open source Risk games Lux Deluxe and Lux Alliance? A Prydain map would be a welcome addition to the library.
That sounds amazing!
Love Taran's reflection in the hilt in the last panel. Sneaky bit of doing in art what authors do in story. I'm struck again by how well Alexander developed Taran over the series. I love the message that a person can grow and change and become someone else. Maybe that's vague, but I don't want to spoil.
You are the first to notice, or at least mention, his reflection. I wasn't sure whether to be pleased or disappointed in my own use of subtlety! Haha.
Yaay, Fflewddur's harp speaks up at last! Always loved that. Dyrnwyn details lovely in the last panel. Taran's face, but also the beauty of the blade despite the scratches on the scabbard.
Wait - are we looking at the blade itself or the scabbard?
As evidenced by the fact that they are all alive, this is the scabbard! ;) Silly!
Oh crap, you're absolutely right! Forgot that Dyrnwyn doesn't let just anyone pull him out.
Anyway, nice scabbard!
*lol* you go, Eilonwy!!!
...oh, what was that snap sound???
So, Eilonwy can use it - great =)
You'll find out!
I hope so :D
Eilonwy's shifting facial expression in the third, fourth, and fifth panels is wonderful. I haven't seen many comic-style artists who can portray such subtle shifts as well as you do. Her BS detector is obviously almost as finely tuned as the magical one Fflewder's wearing slung over his shoulder.
The last panel is very beautifully detailed. The designs on the sword and scabbard plus the scratches on the scabbard and the reflection on the handle...these are just some of the nice little touches that make this comic so beautiful to look at.
Details like these are a main reason I've only been reading this comic one chapter at a time. I'm afraid of what little flourishes in your artwork that I'll miss if I try to binge read too much of this in one sitting.
