Been a while since we heard from the harp.
I do love that harp :)
Also the dramatic irony. Mountains in fantasy stories are NEVER a good idea.
It is something of a trope, isn’t it? When in doubt, avoid the mountains. Also the woods.
But the swamps of home … are thicker than blooood!
Also avoid sea voyages, desert treks, tundra, cave system, secret passages … and hives of scum and villainy! Definitely those.
We should all just stay home!!
I love Eilonwy in the last two panels. "I'm not saying that's a good idea, but that's a good idea."
Can’t go throwing around compliments like candy or certain people might get cocky.
Better say it into a cup, as well. Don't want the wrong people to hear.
I love Eilonwy's eye-roll in the second-to-last panel. And oh, the harp!
If you don't mind my offering one criticism, the words in Medwyn's word balloon in the second panel are perilously close to the edge -- you might want to give them a little more room to breathe if you ever go back to the file to clean it up.
Loving it as always -- so glad you're back in gear!
Don’t mind constructive crit at all! You’re right on that - I’ll have to nudge it.
So, you’ve given Fflewddur a beard now?
If you look carefully, he’s had shadow since the beginning and has been slowly stubbling ever since. All in the name of realism!
Nice work! Been a bit since I've been able to check-in, but I love the the last few panels. Will be sad to leave the valley, but excited to see where you take the story in the upcoming chapters.
I’m always glad to move on to a new setting - especially after as many pages as this one has gone through! The valley has been a rest for them, but my work goes on...
For sure! I know this passage took a little longer than you had hoped, but in a way it was kind of fitting. Gave the illusion of time passing slower in Medwyn's valley, which would make perfect sense.
Beautiful job! So happy to see another page!
I like the idea of time passing more slowly in Medwyn's valley...sort of like Lothlorien, also a place of rest and rejuvenation, and both controlled by beings of great power.
I read this whole thing in TWO DAYS! SOOOO GOOD :)
Ack! They all look so cool. Well, I guess it is time for our heroes to be off once again. Though they look much more refreshed from their stay in Medwyn's valley. I really love your characterizations of them all. My headcanon Fflewdeur is the only one that looks a bit different from your imagining of him, though yours is top notch as well. I always imagined Fflewdeur as something of a blond Adrian Brody. in fact, though he usually does dramas, I think he would make an amazing Fflewdeur in a live action version! What do you think of him? [img]https://www.pinterest.com/pin/558376053777439427[/img]
Ha ha! I love how the harp plings in the background XD
I know, it's been a while since I commented. I just now have time to catch up.
(And by "have time," I mean,screw everything else, I've been missing this comic based on one of my favorite books/series of all time!)
lol thanks! It's probably not a bad way to do things, waiting a while and then binge-reading - at least you get a good sense of continuity then!
That's the second time she approves (her way) of one of Taran's ideas. It should make his head scratch.
