This ain't the golden snitch, pal.
SHE. IS. SO. BEAUTIFUL.
You are such a talented artist OMGOSH I LOVE IT. I just need to stare at the page for a little longer... +_+
You are pretty much like a hit of crack for my ego. :) Yay for mutual admiration society.
OMG SHE LOOKS SO PRETTY
Even after crawling through dirty tunnels in the dark! It's almost like this is fantasy or something. ;)
I LOOOOVE EILONWY! ♡ She looks soo pretty. I can't stop staring. Taran's face tho
:) Bewildering Taran is one of my life's joys.
Um, I mean drawing bewildered Taran, of course.
Yay! Hurrah! We finally get to see her! You've done such a great job! I LOVE her hair. Also, the backgrounds are super pretty. Weird question, but I've always though the bauble was a little bigger. How did you decide on what size to make it?
Practical reasons, mainly. She carries it around in some hidden "fold of her robes" (this is a period/fantasy trope that really amuses me; do you have any clothing that magically holds foreign objects within its folds?) which I interpret as a pouch or pocket. Anything much larger than, say, a racquetball just seems cumbersome to carry everywhere in that fashion. Also, I have a polished quartz sphere I use as the bauble in reference images when I need to see how hands fit around it, and that's it's size, so that's what comes out in the art.
I'm also influenced by the Jody Lee cover illustrations since those were the first edition I owned.
The love of my life has arrived. As well as the original reason Taran invented aspirin.
So that's why he chews willow bark all the time.
What did he think she was going to let him see? xD loool
And yes.....they are the prettiest couple in this world thank you for this <3
Easy now! ;)
So beutifull... <3 *sighs*
Told ya she'd be okay. :)
CAAAAAN YOU FEEEEEEL THE LOOOOOOOVE TONIIIIIIIIGHT!
Love the page. Awesome lighting in the bottom panel. That is one hell of a bauble!
lol Not yet. Not for a while. He's mostly just terrified. That scene in Inside Out where all the little emotions are running and screaming GIRL...GIRL...GIRL.
Given that the last pretty female who was nice to him turned out to be a raving homicidal maniac, can't expect much more.
Wow... she's really lovely. Great job.
But I don't want to let her debut get in the way of my praise of Taran's wince when the bauble lights up. That's a great expression right there!
One of the fun moments in bringing to life details not mentioned in the text.
Oh, and as a longtime comics fan, I've gotta say: "Face it, Taran, you just hit the jackpot!"
That last panel... *swoon*
It's everything I ever loved about your old stuff on Elfwood, but new and improved!
Perhaps it's the internal logic of this world all baubles light up XD Give a break to Taran, girl!
lol well...she doesn't give him a break easily, but he needs shaking up most of the time.
Ahh... If only I could learn to draw like you (without the pain of whatever many years you used to learn and practice of course, because that's what people mean when they say this).
All humor aside, I really wish I could draw pretty people like you do. Your light is also gorgeous, even though a lot of this comic happens in the dark.
Lol! That’s like when I say I wish I could play piano, right?
Dramatic lighting certainly makes things more interesting.
That wing-sprouting thing was right there in the book and yet I never thought to make a Harry Potter reference in my head. I feel like my eleven-year-old self really fell down on the job here.
Well, her line is actually "turn into a bird and fly away?" so it's not quite as obvious; I changed it as a wink-and-nudge to Potter fans. You can forgive your inner child. ;)
Please tell me that you are going to illustrate the entire series!!!!!!! I will buy the heck out of it! It’s gorgeous! (By-the-by my daughter’s name is Eilonwy, my favorite books when I was little)
I cannot promise the entire series, but I have every intention of finishing this book! Glad you found me, hope you continue to enjoy. :)
So I know this page was made a long time ago, but I just made Eilonwy from the 4th panel my lock screen on my phone. Your art is really beautiful and has gotten even better as time went on.
Awww I love this.
Hahaha, I love the snitch jab 😁
It was inevitable
I love how you draw Eilonwy and Taran.
They are my favorite thing on earth.
