Happy 97th birthday to Lloyd! To celebrate: a new page! Woot!
Happy BD Lloyd, and Yay! Those are some scary silhouettes (I know you would have liked to have included more of that story) and the staircase looks amazing, like something from the LoTR movies, but also uniquely Prydain.
I like how you included the apprehensive Fflewddur from "Sunrise," bravely leading Melyngar through the switchbacks...
Just beautiful art here!
Another example of Fflewddur being quietly heroic while nobody notices.
This landscape was inspired by the Camino del Rey near Malaga. Check out some images if you’ve never heard of it!
OOOH, I just saw some photos. Yeah that place looks incredible!
Thank you! Love your treatment of this classic book.
That was a quick response!! Hehe thanks for supporting.
I'm so glad to see this is back! This page was worth waiting for!
I’m sorry the wait was so long! I should be able to get a few more pages out over February!
Man, your landscape skills are epic! Makes me want to go spelunking.
And poor Doli...life would be soooo much easier if he would only let it...
Beautiful page as always; here's to many more following as fast as possible! Be safe out there.
I hope to get at least a few out this month! My plate is a little less full at the moment so fingers crossed
Yay! *turns handsprings for joy* Shriekings and squeakings of gladness and madness! (Doesn't really fit, but sounds good!)
That horizon is freaking me out! Great job.
It is a dramatic landscape for sure.
Huzzah! Welcome back. I hope your holidays were enjoyable. I think I have stated this before but one of my favorite things is when there are allusions to other adventures/ stories in the world. Things that are happening that don't involve the main characters. Makes for good world building. That panel with the two fae in the shadows is a nice little example of that.
Thank you! It was nice overall - but rather glad to be back into normal routines, and able to work some more on this.
The perspective on this page is absolutely fantastic and I love the background blurring around Doli holding his breath haha. You do such a great job showing the otherworldly feel of the fae realm and the expressions as they go across the tiny walkways. I convinced a friend to read the series, and I can't wait to share this comic with them. :)
Awesome, nice work on spreading the joy. ? I got most of my friends to read back in the day but alas, nobody latched onto it quite as hard.
I'd no idea of Lloyd Alexander's birthday. It would also be my father's father's 122nd.
Aw, that’s cool!
His eldest son shared a certain Adolf's birthday ... and when 1945 came around (and everyone not freed by policemen/Vlasov or Patton got liberated by the one disciplined army group on the Soviet Western front) he cried, much to everyone's confusion and then amusement, because everyone forgot to hang out the spider flags for him.
I always wondered if the notorious "4/20" slang was invented by someone with a sense of humor.
No matter how long it takes, your updates are always worth waiting for. Thanks for another beautiful page!
Thank you for your faithfulness!
Yay, a new chapter! I love Doli's face in the 4th panel.
Doli has already had it with these people and they haven't even gotten out of the realm yet. :P
It's great to see some of my favorite adventurers back on the move! That last panel (or maybe I should call it a painting because it's much more than just a panel) is beautifully done as the characters make their way along the ledge and cross the bridge with some stunning landscape imagery all around them.
I hope the project that you were working on went well!
It did, thank you! Another children’s book on the resume☺️ Glad to have a little bit of spare time back for this though.
So Henwyn earned herself a leash... can't say she didn't deserve that.
Thanks for another beautiful update.
A leash is, unfortunately, not foolproof.
YAY!!!!!!!!! the new page is wonderful as always! I was beginning to think you were dead. I am very glad you are not! I am rereading the book of three and coincidently I am at this point!
Lol well in the event of my untimely demise, there are a few people frequenting here who follow enough of my other accounts to be informed if that ever happens, and I will trust them to spread the news so that nobody gets left hanging in suspense. ?
I loved that you are making this wonder happen, giving colors and scenery to this wonderful story, unfortunately I can't read it because I still don't have so good English, but it is Perfect
Oh I’m sorry the language is difficult! I am happy you enjoy the story from the pictures. ?
In the latest Harry Dresden book, which i am finally reading, the huntsmen of Annuvin make a number of appearances.
It's not Jim Butcher's best work, but I've a far greater appreciation for the shambolic horrors thanks to you, and I'm enjoying it more than i otherwise would have. Thank you.
I’m not familiar with the Dresden books, but apparently there’s a connection; you’re the second person to mention them in the same breath as Prydain. As always, for whatever way my works brings joy, I am honored.
Their author mentioned in (at least) one interview that the Chronicles were influential books for him. I’ve listened to a few of his books on audio — enjoyable if not always spectacular. Dresden is a modern-day wizard detective based in Chicago. The books bring in quite the mashup of folklore monsters, fae, etc.
Onward and upwards, hooray! Just finished your book "Sunrise" and loved it btw. Thanks for sharing your excellent work!
Oh I’m glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for letting me know! ❤️
Ooh, that bridge and valley! Beautiful!
? I used to hate doing backgrounds. This project cured me.
I been wond'rin' about the goblins in panel three. One has limp hair, consistent with other characters. The other...
Is that hair sleeked back with wax? Or is it blowing in a wind that no one else experiences? If Goblin #1 turned its/his/her head, would the hair keep streaming in the same direction?
Ahhh, but how do you know it’s hair? Perhaps it is some sort of twiggy, mossy outgrowth, or a hat intended to camouflage its wearer in thickets of bracken.
You never can tell, with fae.
Amazing job coming up with all this. Paticularly love that last panel. You are quite the creator.
I do what I was created to do is all. ? Thank you for popping in and welcome!
ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I am in love with these books so when I found this, I was over the top happy! Keep up the good work!
Welcome! I’m so glad you found me and that you are enjoying the comic!
Is the second panel an intentional reference to the LotR/Hobbit movie posters?
No. I don’t even remember what those looked like.
