Maybe you just needed to remind readers about his geometric skin patterns that his shirt normally covers? Yeah, that's it.

Great page. Excellent poses. Perfect dialog. It doesn't get much better than this, Linn ^_~
There is absolutely no reasonable explaination why Blaze has no shirt on in that third/forth panel. At all. Just me whoring out my character for +favs.
@Karlijn: Yeah its the main issue with webcomics, especially if not updating on the regular. I try to keep it 2 pages a month which is super little imho, but its all ive managed the past months because of my depression and school. Its not that many pages yet but ive seen some artists put up synopsises or catch-up texts underneath the author comic OR made a description of each chapter every time they finish it. It helps alot on memory and especially in long-run comics. Or a proper character-page works too. I've been too lazy but i should do one when more characters enter. Over 5 characters= CAST PAGE PLEASE! XD
@Linn: I sure did! Haha, worth it! I get the story a bit better now since my memory is horrible for all the details of stories. That's awesome XD I love this crush (also the word "crush" is so fitting because it's Celia)
@Karlijn: Dayum you rereading the whole thing?!
Haha they are sort of cute. I loved Kid's 'Yuri crush' comment to this page XD
Oh man I nearly forgot what an emotional rollercoaster this part was, reading it in one go is super intens...
This is all I need in life, who cares about education and tests when I can read webcomics.
I'm rereading Extinct to freshen up my memory and this page warms my heart <3
I mean it's twisted and creepy but also sweet in a way XD
Edit: Re-drawn characters in the entire page and a grammar-check/slight adjustment in the dialogue. Celia is smiling in the last panel over killing somethings mother (which used to be queen).
I Also lowered the horizontal line in the first panel, its still too high but its a way better improvement. They walk a step uphill.

The reason I had to do this is because I literally derped out when making the current pages. Their clothing don't match the storyline, I didn't give them proper bags for their stuff, and Celias hair at the time was way too long. The old page lost alot of its glory since i wasnt in particular unhappy with it.
Old version for comparison: http://img3.smackjeeves.com/images/uploaded/comics/2/l/s/2lsqid7jk0mWiI.jpg
Edit: Re-did Celias hair and Celia in last panel to match the newer pages, as well as renewed speechbubbles, some adjustments on faces and fixed grammar errors.

@kidcthulhu: I've said it to almost everyone I meet haha, but there is a free pdf online if you search for 'michael hampton figure drawing and invention pdf'. He basically goes through everything i've learned from art school +++, its absolutely awesome, i've only done gesture drawings and occasionally looked at marvel action poses, and its already so much easier to sketch a pose. Its worth looking into!

The body language on this page is great, actually. Makes me realize I need to step up my own game in that department ^_~

The cool thing with making comics is you can add whatever references you want and dont have to explain them. Like Herman the planet smasher tshirts.

This page despite a few mistakes on 5th panel perspective wise on the characters and Blazes weird proportions in that last panel was actually not that bad, usually I hate my stuff. I might change my mind tomorrow. Or maybe my dynamic pose-training has finally paid off.

That's the last page of 2017, next update will be...NEXT YEAR! :O
Happy New year!
@skyangel: You could say the entire space-cooperation Lara has been taken into is pirates or plunderers, they make up their own rules (and kidnaps a human girl and keeps her hidden from the government) and they're already planning to 'plunder' an old civilization on a deserted planet for valueables. Pretty rotten people if you ask me.

@skyangel: Thank you, you too sky! (and happy new year!)
@skyangel: Haha, she does actually have a pad-device sort of... She uses it in the first chapter looking up old music.
They need work and luck to go through such a plan XD

@skyangel: Oh thank you! ^^
Annnnd yeah, drawing it out often solves every knot or obsticle when making a story.
Planning everything is impossible, my bf plans everything from start to finish, every detail, I've tried his way of comic'ing, but....Its not working for me. People has their own ways, even if it doesnt work for some it may work for you!

Reading your editorial it sounds like you've got quite a headful of story to tell and we've only read the tip of the iceberg so far! I know only too well how stories can grow as you work on them so you have to be prepared to hold back at times or commit to several years sustained effort to get it all out! You're doing great though anyway
