"What the hell is going on here." (Akjámas thoughts on this) You are not the only ones confused : D It will clear up probably soon (or maybe never because I like weird and confusing scenes hehh). But seriously stuff will clear up by the end of arc one, its all tied together.

Took a while again rip. I have the most inconsistent upload schedule ever. School got in the way pretty much + lack of motivation, I really need to simplify my sytle more.

I like the shading, makes them look so soft
The moon definitely doesn´t look normal, I based this idea after a game (which was a huge inspiration for the story in earlier times). The moon shining yellow and breaking into pieces has a symbolic meaning in icenorse mythology...

Used a ref for Lahkari on the last panel (source: Google images)
@YolkenEgg: hmm why?
@YolkenEgg: yes it is very confusing and you´ll see soon why xD

So you may have noticed..style change of the shading. Idk I think cellshading looks cooler in a comic and it was nice to do something different again. Also I was using a bit of cell shading for the previous pages too so why not use it entierly? I´m not sure if I keep it but as for now I´ll try to use that style :D
I think I like how it turned out mmh

Lahkari, one just doesn´t cut off Akjáma when she is talking..rud
Akjáma is supposed to look confused in the fourth panel, I´m not good at drawing emotions to animals :P
Akjáma´s mohawk grows and grows the more I draw her hah


I used ref photos for Akjáma on the first, second and fourth panel, they can be found on google images (can´t look all up now)
Whoa!!
Synopsis

Volcanic eruptions, followed by earthquakes and darkness, witchcraft, omnious powers and the genocide of whole species: when the balance had shatterd, the life in the crater became dreadful and hope and faith had been replaced by deception and corruption.
Today, when the horror seemingly calmed down the people started to regain the belief in redemption, however not everyone would strive for it in peace and mercy. Caught in the middle, a bunch of young Glacialis try to make their way to protect their home, threatend by Siira´s power and the dangerous people who are after it, realizing who they really are and who they can choose to be.

​Arc 1: Myrkr Kuuinnfall

Lies and secrecy rise over Áen as mysterious and disconcerning incidents start to increase from time to time.
While a wolfess, wielding the lost element of spirit has to make her way through the hazards hunting her, Akjáma, with the knowledge of a dangerous secret, is forced to make consequential choices to protect her home.
After venturing into a long forgotten and lost village, Akjáma has to face its macabre horror while slowly revealing the place´s occult past and discovering its connection to Áen and herself is bigger than anyone could have thought.
