Glitchy updates after not having internet for a week resulted in losing half the work on this page, and then having to redo it all. :P It was so demoralizing, I can't even be excited about it now but...it's done! Onward.

Wow! I'm so impressed! This is such a huge undertaking. I love how you're following the story, but you add so much with their expressions. It's fabulous! :) On average how many hours does it take you per page to do this?

Average page takes about six hours, give or take. So far I've been working on this about two years, though if I could manage to be more consistent I'd be a lot farther along.

I HATE it when I lose work. I just wanna throw up the half finished page and be done with it.

Also, poor Taran.

"Must you interfere with everything!?"
"YES! I had dibs on the hero role, damnit!"

I literally cried for like ten minutes. And it sucks because I absolutely love this scene and was excited about it and then lost all that mojo. I can't even state with any confidence that the finished product is better or as good as the first, but...eh.

I'm also just in post-crisis grump mode though so there's that. We all lived in heightened anxiety for a week and the let down after all the adrenaline stops is tough to continue to work through.

LOL Taran. Just tryin' to do the right thing as always, but he makes too many assumptions.

I am not sure about Taran, but Benny Hill taught me what happens when I assume...

Your joke's lost on me, Honz; the only work of Benny Hill I know is the toymaker from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

In the midst of creating European Union speak and having fun with the spelling of Czechoslovakia for his 'students", he told one not to "Assume", because "when you 'assume' you make an [circle first three letters] out of 'u' [circling the letter] and 'me' [circling the last two]".
He aimed high, ol' Benny did - but he was kind, non-political, and his timing was excellent.

Ahhhhh, love it! I should check out more of him really, loving Brit humor the way I do...for exactly these types of reasons.

Your boys will always love you.
At first I was leery of going there by spelling the joke out, but I've never been so happy to have spelt ... and I don't even like most fish.

Agh, that sucks that you lost so much work.


But the look on Taran's face in the last panel: spot on and hilarious.

"Musn't say anything. Only makes it worse. Musn't say anything. Only makes it worse."

Which, if I remember, will pretty much explicitly be his frame of mind in just a little bit down the road.

Ha! Yes, I believe it will be. Though, perhaps, with less actual pain backing it up.

Do not shout, Taran, they will hear you...!

Wow, watch your hands, Taran... (and where you go...)

...and Eilonwy, you should not shout, either!

*lol* be glad it was just the shin, Taran... =P

So, what will Eilonwy do?


...and glad to have you back, Saeriellyn =D <3

LOL don't worry; his intentions are nothing but honorable here. For that matter, so are hers. I'm sure she was aware that aiming higher would have been even more effective and could have done so if she wanted to.

Interestingly, this is rather a difficult part of male/female conflict interactions in media. There are only so many acceptable places a guy can touch a girl without consent; in an emergency situation you grab/hit/kick whatever is necessary at the moment, but if you show that in a movie or show or graphic form, it has time to get picked apart and analyzed. Kind of tough on the artist and performers!

Losing work sucks, and losing creative work sucks even more.

That said, I love Eilonwy's body language in the last panel, as she leans in and shouts at Taran.

It came out well in spite of the loss, though I can't really even say if it came out any better.

And yes, body language. She's not having it from him right now. Or anybody else.
