One of those times I wish comicfury supported soundtracks. Play one of those ambient orchestrations with birds singing and water gurgling while you stare at this.

ETA: I experimented with animation effects, which I suck at but the result was kinda fun; you can see it at the facebook page: Here.

Wish I had a volunteer who actually knew how to do that stuff and wanted to pretty up my pages.

Have you ever considered making backgrounds professionally.

Ugh, no. It's my least favorite part of the process. I have learned to enjoy it in this comic, because I love the Welsh landscape and it's become a character in its own right to me. But I would die of tedium if I had to create urban backgrounds or modern architecture.

All the natural beauty of Rivendell crossed with the homely warmth of Caer Dallben - great job!

:) Good way of putting it. Should make Taran nice and homesick.

You beat me to the reference - and the referene wasn't cheesy, but sublime. Well done.

I can see the birds fly and hear the water without a soundtrack.... One of my favorite things about comics is that it lets me supply all the sound and motion in my head. And this is spectacular!

Thanks Rob. I did play around with animation effects on it - you can see them on the facebook page - and that was fun, but tedious; thank goodness it stands well on its own.

Ok, so the big reveal from the last page was just them seeing the Valley for the first time. That's what I thought it probably was, I just couldn't remember for sure. Anyhow, we're back on the same "page" now, lol. In any event this is super awesome, so colorful and bright. It also must be a well needed break for our characters as the journey has been particularly bleak leading up to this.

Yes, that was it! This was going to be the last panel, but I'm glad it turned out the way it did - the Valley kinda deserves its very own full-bleed page. :)

It's a very good break for them indeed. I'm currently working on the next page and the bliss on all their faces just makes me almost cry.

YES!!! A sound tool for comics would be nice :) What a lovely lighting in this page! And you managed your color scheme choice in a perfect way (yeah, shame on me, but I still use a color wheel to calculate colors or I make a mess XD).

It was one of the only things I liked about Tapastic. Gave up posting there because response was crap and I didn't like reformatting for vertical, but yeah, the ability to have music and sound effects was great.

Nothing wrong with color wheels!! I keep one in my head instead of in front of me, that's all!

I had no luck on Tapastic because all songs I selected aren't available on SoundCloud.

Lloyd Alexander's version of Shangri-La without all the meddlesome people? Looks great! :)

I just spent a few days last week out in the badlands of North Dakota and then the Black Hills of South Dakota. More than a few times I thought of Medwyn's valley. I've been looking forward to this reveal. Great job!

So Lovely! And so close to what I saw in my mind's eye as a kid reading this for the first time. You have such an amazing talent for capturing what LA described.

It's so real to me. I'm thankful he was such a vivid writer.
