If I'm correct, that's actually Gavin, the Fey who Max fought off during First Encounter. Not to give any spoilers away, but Fey like Gavin hold a grudge for a -very- long time. Don't let him hear you call him pudgy, much less a girl ;D

Well, I think that's Gavin and Gavin's a he last I heard. So you might not want to let him hear you call him a pudgy female. Fey can be so touchy about these things.

Gavin: "Does this tunic make my butt look big? Be honest." ;)

Gavin: "Now let's try that again, shall we? I asked: Does this tunic make my butt look big? And do be honest this time."
2011-11-14 22:09:24 
"Yes. It makes your butt look HUGE. *arches her wings* Gonna make something of it?" XD

Ooo! Gavin is so going down! *grabs the popcorn and settles in to watch*

Is it wrong that I totally heard Christopher Lee doing Gavin's last line there?

Wonderful page! Sorry I haven't been commenting as late. No excuses... This is an interesting dilemma...wonder if they'll find Spooky....

Thanks. Hey, no worries. I'm not much of a commenter myself. We're all so busy making comics, it's hard for us to get a free moment. *laughs* Besides, aren't you doing the NaNo as well this month?
2011-11-17 01:56:04 
Oh, no! I can't write under a deadline to save my life! Lately I can't seem to write much at all. I'm glad my comics are based off stories already finished or things would have come to a screeching halt about two months ago! LMAO!

I've been waiting for this page to say this: The funny thing is that Europeans are probably more fond of the Disney versions of fairytales than the Yankees themselves. In America, it's a social taboo - flexible, but still a taboo - to wear a shirt with a Disney character on it. But in Britain, Germany, France, Italy, and other places, it's not entirely uncommon to see ex-Disney World tourists wearing their Disney kitcsh. I just find that binary funny, is all. Now, on to the actual page critique! I like the slight shading you have around Max's muzzle; it really establishes the extra dimension that you were missing in some of your earlier artwork (i.e. Prologues and the first part of A Political Spell) - I'd even go so far as to say that it's a milestone in your artwork. Gavin's white irises and pupils really establish a frightening stare. The best part of the Gavin picture, though, is the spell circle near his hand. Still noticeable, but faded just enough to establish a sense of subtlety...which given Gavin's nature, adds to the piece to make it all the more frightening. I'd have more to say...but for some reason I can't get on the forum to make a proper critique, and I don't want to bog up the comments D:

Thanks! Yeah, like I said before, I'm not trained in art, which is why I'm wearing myself out trying to do a comic and learn this stuff on my own. I haven't been able to work on the correspondence course for over a week now. :( Unfortunately, it takes me a bit - sometimes years - to figure things out and apply them. Hmm... that's odd about the forum. I'll ask Matt if he'll take a look at it - he knows coding better than I do. Thanks for the heads-up!

Learning on your own is nothing to be ashamed of =D Everything that I've done for writing has been similar - I read, wrote, read, wrote, rinsed and repeated. And, as you very well know with the course you're taking, learning is a life-long process; art and writing evolves like everything else, and like everything else it takes time. Yeah, thanks for that. I tried registering as Hera Ledro (I'm pretty sure I used the same attached e-mail address as well), but I never did get the confirmation/activation e-mail or anything. 'Twas strange =\

Cool, thanks! Yeah, I love all the learning lately, but I'm always tired these days. I can't cram anything more into the brain. *laughs* I did find a great blog by a woman named Nattosoup who's currently taking the sequential art course at SCAD which has been helpful. I learned about a few really useful books through her blog. And I love how she builds up the anatomy of her characters. I just don't seem to retain stuff as well as I did when younger. :D

If you're interested in SCAD, you might read the first few years of Today Nothing Happened ( by SCAD alum Shazzbaa. (The webcomic itself started out as a school project.) Her projects gallery is pretty fascinating as well. (Yes, I'm a fan and regular reader.)

I just started reading a bit ago after I saw your comment. This is great! Thanks for the link! :D
