Flashback narratives are a welcome chance to play with other settings and characters...a couple of whom we'll see again, later. :) Feel free to speculate.

On your twitter you should be sure to mention "Prydain" and "Book of Three" in your update tweets so people searching for those things will be sure to find you. I would have found your marvelous work much sooner.

I try when I can, but the letter limit on twitter is hard on the brevity-challenged.

That black-haired person in the last panel--is that who I think it is?

Concur with the others--lovely page.

I wouldn't have imagined him that young, though I suppose this could have been some time ago. Fflewddur looks younger in the flashback, too. And he is absolutely lovely. And of course I got fangirl chills, recognizing him.

I picture Adaon as no older than 21-22 at most in TBC, and Fflewddur is, at that point, in his early 30s, I'd guess. If we push this reminiscing back, say, 6 or 7 years, that makes Adaon about 15 at the time of Fflewddur's bardic examinations - not yet old enough to present for the exams himself but believably serving as a page or acolyte or something of that nature. It is, however, meant to be as ambiguous as the viewer desires, so while that's Adaon in my mind, it doesn't have to be for anybody who objects.

Its studies week before finals in college right now, that top right panel is an illustration of myself.

There's a lot of things I miss about college, but that's not one of them.

Oooh! If that's who I think it is, he looks wonderful. What a beautiful young man, with those far-seeing grey eyes.

Matt kept telling me he looked too feminine. Maybe I've been reading too many pretty-male manga comics, but I've always thought of him this way.

Where's his brooch?

The brooch is a betrothal gift from his fiancee. It's a little early yet for that.

I'd suggest portraying him with a few days growth of beard, as in Justin Kunz's sketch (I'm assuming you're familiar with his fan art -- he does the second best depictions of Alexander's characters I've seen, after yours) if this project gets as far as his appearance in "The Black Cauldron;" there wouldn't have been many opportunities to shave during the campaign in that book.

I've been posting comments as a guest, forgetting that I actually do have an account here, but I'm the same Alex who posted the last several comments on earlier pages. The last time I looked at this you were just up to the first appearance of Gwythaints; I'm delighted that you're still posting it, and that it's so much further along now.

I agree. And I fully hope to get to TBC. I suppose if I make it to TW I'll have to let Taran get scruffy-faced too. I am not sure how I feel about that! XD

Those faces are amazing! Are you using some sort of method where you have a photo on a layer and you're painting over it, or are you just working straight from a reference?

I was working from references. I wish I had more time to do that with every page because the results are always so great. Sacrificing consistency between my other more cartoony characters and these one-offs pains me though.

I am apparently the only one who thought that was a woman in the final panel and assumed "Ariannlynn, I guess? Huh."

I think I need to read more comics. Clearly I am stale on the concept of bishonen.

LOL well. I'm not usually into the pretty boy comics myself, and I'm sure nobody will believe that I DID in fact use a real boy's portrait as a reference here, but it is what it is.
