Too sleepy for witty commentary. Enjoy.

Love the expressions on the last panel. Taran's being so nice (much more consistent, finally, with who he actually is than the stress that he's under), and Gurgi suddenly realizes that here's someone who will accept him for who/what he is and let him become better, too. It's a very canine expression of absolute adoration and devotion, and you do it very well.

Taran's a good soul underneath and it's good to draw him smiling for a change. I think this scene does more than reveal that, though. He's treated Gurgi with contempt up until this point, assuming him to be a useless tagalong only out for his own gain. Now he realizes that Gurgi, though he might be "less than" human, has his own sense of honor and loyalty, and is worthy of compassion and respect like the rest of them. It's a turning point for the image-conscious Taran (Coll? He's so bald!) to acknowledge that a creature as unappealing as Gurgi has intrinsic value, like all living things - something that gets further boost later with Medwyn.

It's an important scene and I almost left it out for time - I was going to have Gurgi refuse food later, but a friend pointed out that it's important that Gurgi was in the process of trying to help the others when he was hurt. It's most likely the first time he has ever sought food - his greatest motivator - for anyone other than himself. For a canoid creature, that's an enormous leap of consciousness, and Taran, though he couldn't verbalize it that way, recognizes it. So they both evolve here.

A really nice scene, and I agree -- a definite turning point in Taran & Gurgi's relationship. I'm glad you included it.

You must have a lot of references for particularly expressive animal faces. Gurgi's expression in the last panel is just amazing.

Naaah, just...have a fawning, goofy dog with this exact personality. It's pretty simple to extrapolate. XD
