Pudgy little sh́th, isn't she?
Hera Ledro
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
BabylonRanger
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." ;)
Matt
Err.... Yes? ACK I mean NO! No! Arg, my SPLEEN
Hera Ledro
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."
Silka
"Yes. It makes your butt look HUGE. *arches her wings* Gonna make something of it?" XD
Darc
Ooo! Gavin is so going down! *grabs the popcorn and settles in to watch*
BabylonRanger
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....
Darc
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?
Tigershark06
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!
Hera Ledro
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 =\
Darc
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 (http://www.shazzbaa.com/) 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
