I never thought I'd be thankful for the zombie craze. But it has resulted in endless references for cauldron-born, so I guess I'll have to shut my mouth about it.

Thank you Ameliap! Haven't seen you in my comment list before. :) Nice to get an encouraging word from a pro; that made my day.

Great facial expressions; Fflewddur and Taran are astonished, of course, but Eilonwy looks critical, rather than triumphant, as you'd expect if the spell had worked perfectly. That net doesn't quite look like it did when she watched Achren cast it, does it? It's an awesome visual effect, though.

By the way, when I was looking up Darwin's bark spider on Wikipedia, I inevitably ended up browsing other pages there for an hour or so, and I ran across this remarkable garment that might provide some artistic inspiration somewhere down the line -- a short cape woven from silk provided by roughly 1.2 million golden orb weaver spiders, collected and released over a period of three years. This is the natural color of their silk, hence their common name.

Omg, that's amazing! Reminds me of that article on byssum. That anyone took the time to do that shames me when I think how I keep skimping the details on these pages.

Very, very pretty. But I reiterate: YOU COULD DO THIS THE WHOLE TIME!?

Nice work on the couldron-born. Grotesque, but not over the top.

I am way better now. Yesterday hubs got the kids out of the house so I could "rest". Which I did. Sort of. You know...drawing doesn't take a lot of physical exertion, right?

Soooo Pretty! I'd decorate a feast hall with those. :) I love your work so much. These last few pages are the most beautiful things I've ever seen in comic art.

Wow, beautiful magi-fireworks - and seemingly very effective... =D

...and that look on Eilonwy looking after the magic induced arrow - beautiful and full of expectation and determination - you caught that wonderfully... <3

Go, Eilonwy!!! you rock!!!

Simply stunning. Better than my imagination when I read this scene as a kid.

Just a flat-out jaw-dropper.

Thank you Rob.

It actually is better than my imagination, too. lol

My mental image was always more along the lines of a giant net floating down onto them. But the more I tried to make that concept work, the less satisfied I was with it. When I started scribbling other methods of movement for the webbing, it struck me how much more visually interesting it was to have it move like something alive, shooting around and ensnaring its victims deliberately, growing and adapting as needed to the circumstance.

It's always fascinating when things evolve in entirely different ways than I anticipated.
