DreamCatcher

by Hazumirein
Riza Wolfe is an ordinary teen--and that's her problem. The mundane stresses of school and navigating a social life just don't peak her interest. However, upon being gifted a dream catcher as a seemingly thoughtless souvenir one day, she's suddenly offered an opportunity to escape her simple life and have the sort of fantastic adventures she's only dreamed about...in an alternate dimension, of course.

She sets out, accompanied by her guardian werewolf, to figure out what brought her to this dream world in the first place--which turns out to be easier said than done. Along the way, she collects a motley crew of people of creatures to call "friends", who often seem to just coincidentally be relevant to her situation. The questions just keep piling up. Will Riza get the answers she seeks? Or is she in over her head, ready to be done in by the evil lurking just around the corner?

Well as I see it, the half dragons can be your enemies or your friends, and if the others have similar "pairings" like Riza and Dae it would definitely be a better idea to have them as friends rather than enemies. As for the hands, it makes sense to me, like Riza would probably be fidgeting at this point.
I actyually think it's a very nic way to show her head going down. Faces are akways trickey to get the right expression, this leaves it to the reader to imagine the proper face and still send the mood message.

Plus, yeah, changing up from doing faces all the time is nice.
well you're great at drawing hands lol
I like the angle in that panel :)
@KingKomodo: Funny you should bring up Riza not having a mount haha. That will be addressed in the next couple of chapters somewhere. Well, sort of.
Starts somewhere between a large cat and a small dog. And grows to the size of a horse. I dig it. Also at this point it's looking like Riza would be the only one without a mount. Well, other than Dae doing so voluntarily, and Luna. Though I don't think it's much of a disadvantage for her.
I like the traditional ink as well. As for the job hunt, I feel your pain. Took me 2 years to find one after leaving the Navy. Probably better odds for you. Glad you're back though.
Yay, Riza! We hadn't seen her for a while. Somehow, I seem to have missed her.
awwwww yus it's back! I love this comic, I'm so glad it's back! I wish you luck <3
Glad to see you back!!

And I think the traditional inking looks quite nice
Glad to see you're back! I think the traditional ink looks great!

I wish you the best of luck in finding a good job. It's tough but I believe in you!
Yeah finding a job is tough. Sometimes you have to take a not-so-good job for a while and keep looking for one that will fit you. Take heart though, I know it feels awful for a while but it's worth slogging until you are happier!
It's good to see you again, I really hope things take a turn for the better for you!
I'm...not exactly sure what the deal is with that panel of Riza's hands in her lap. Like I had something in mind originally and just sort of forgot what I was going for halfway through drawing it. I think I mostly didn't want to put another headshot there.
Hey so here's this thing.

It's fun to draw Chico growing as the comic goes on. He will probably not be as big as like, Oberon was, but will definitely get big enough to ride eventually.
Okay. So.

I've been sitting on this page and the next one for like, a month, thinking I would get some kind of buffer together and start updating again. But then I never did that and I figure the only way I'm ever going to return to doing this is to just...do it.

I didn't plan on dropping off the face of the internet for as long as I did. I've been really stressed about a lot of things, mostly the fact that my job is miserable (and I hate being there and feel like I've gotten so far off track from what I wanted to do that I won't ever get back), so I thought taking some time off of something I considered an obligation would help, but it's not even close to the root of the problem so all it did was make me feel horribly unproductive and somehow even worse about myself. I've literally been coming home from work and sitting on my couch and watching Netflix most nights, and that is just not the kind of life I can be content with; I need to be /doing/ something.

Anyway, you may notice this is somewhat less clean than usual--that's because it's traditionally inked. My computer is still acting up and I still can't afford a new one, so I minimized the computer work part of it. I don't plan on this being a permanent change but for now it'll have to do. It's also a good bit faster than doing everything digitally, so that's a bonus.

There'll be a page Thursday, that I can say for sure. I'll do my best to keep up after that.

In other news, I had an interview for another job a week or two ago and am putting out some other applications, so...hopefully something changes soon.
Refresh
I look forward to your return to regular updates, but I understand if you feel the need to review and refresh. So, take the time to reread everything you've already written. reread the books that inspired you and check to see if the authors have written anything new that you haven't read. If your one of those people who keep a dream journal then review it, paying special attention to any dreams where you interact with your characters. Whatever your source of inspiration: dreams, imagination, or coincidence ask the universe for more and see what synchronicity provides.
I dub him JACK! Cause he looks like a demonic jackal from my nightmares.
Ialu's guardian has screws on their cheekbones??? And...the rest of their bones have screws as well. Huh.
Dang it I hate naming things, mostly because I'm not good at it so.
AHHHHHHHHHH Ialu's guardian is so cuteeeee. I think he should be called Skel or Bali. :3
