Mal Resmond works with them, helping them with their problems in a world where most people don’t know that they exist…

Mal slices bread like I do! NORLAND'S FACE THERE XD

And of course, take care of yourself! :)

Just a quick headsup! I'll be very busy with work throughout August, so updates might be a little late this month. Thanks for understanding!

Dad is the OMNIDAD from now on, even if he has any other name. u_u

Loving this colour scheme!

The dad is probably one of those people who treat strangers nicer than their own kids. Which sucks but is generally better than people who let their kids do whatever but are mean to everyone else (the first type changes over time, the second type almost never does).

That or Mal has some weird magic powers.

It just kills me how Norrland had to fold her apron to wear it x3

Oh gosh, the new chapter looks good already! I love the environments (something the end of last chapter lacked a tad) and the body language and expressions - Mal is all ready for action and Norland is so disapproving. XD

So glad this comic is back. <3
The fifth and final guest page is by my partner Don, who has cooked up something so in-character that it might as well be canon. Actually, I’m the author so I’m the one calling the shots, this is absolutely 100% canon now.

Don has an incredible eye for colour and is always the first person I ask for colouring advice. If there’s a certain page of Bygones Be that you think is extra good colourwise, it’s most likely thanks to their help. Go to their twitter to check out more of their amazing artwork!

Chapter three starts next week! I’ll be sticking to Friday updates for now. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed all the guest art!
Ahhh this is lovely! <333 I love working with watercolours but I definitely don't find them effortless. Huge respect!!
See you next Friday!
Now who made this radical page? Why, the equally radical Mons!

The only thing he was willing to tell me about his comic was that it was going to be "dumb as a rock". However, we can all clearly see that it just..... rocks.

Mons is the most versatile artist I know, but his special skill is making watercolours seem effortless and fun. Find his paintings and more at his twitter!
This is such a wonder. <3
This lovely piece is made by my oldest friend, Sebastian Eylir!

Now this one kinda hit me in the gut. There's such a nice sense of air and freedom in this drawing, it feels magical to me. I wonder what's going through Norrland's head when she looks at the windeye...

You can find more of Sebastian's art at his twitter and tumblr, but be warned that there's content not suitable for children there sometimes! Sebastian is more or less always open for commissions, so do check him out if you're in need of some quality art.
Next up, the mastermind behind the incredible comic Parallax, Falke!

Falke is one of the nicest and most hardworking people I know, and I was so happy when he agreed to draw a guest page. He captured such a cozy little moment!

You can read Parallax from the start here! And I actually recommend NOT looking at the latest page unless you're already up to date, because Some Stuff Is Happening Right Now

oh Mal is so good!!! infodumping!! lovely!!!! :D
Ahaha, I think we ALL have met that particular bygone... Great guest comic! :D
Wow, this is awesome. The art is great, I love Mal in the lat panel :)
First out is the ink monster and bigtime Mal fan Mister Domon!

I was SO delighted by this comic, Domon's comedic timing is always superb. And just look at how amazingly cute he drew Mal and Norrland...!

By the way, Domon made the very first Bygones Be fanart ever back in 2015. It only seems fair that he'd be the first ever guest artist!

You can find more of Domon's art over at his tumblr!
@Oly-RRR: Thank you for your honest feedback, I really appreciate it! I am the first to admit that this chapter was a struggle to write, and looking back I could've done it much differently. Live and learn! Hopefully it will flow better when read all at once.
Interesting to learn some of the background of the... background? Of the place! :D

I still love the comic and will be looking forward for its return but this chapter was kinda text-heavy even for me (I'm usually all for comic NOT being all about action only). It might be because the last few pages are this lengthy back-and-forth between Norrland and Mal that comes down to Mal asking for help with Bygones, some info that was already implied and Mal deciding to work at the kitchen, all without much visual variety. But then it sounds like you had a lot of things going on while working on this comic so I can get this, and maybe I'm being nitpicky here. Gotta use the break to re-read the chapter since some scenes just flow better when you get to read more than one page at a time. :)
