@sentiashinou: Ohmygod I love you, I never expected our off-hand agreement in shipping those two to result in fanart, hahaha.

(I was gonna wait to draw this until I had some actual free time but obviously I have absolutely no self control.)

So.
Some of you may be aware that Valkyria Chronicles 4 came out about a month ago. Others of you may also be aware that I am a huge fan of anything related to World War One and Two, and greatly enjoyed playing VC 1.
I just read a portion of the wiki page for VC 4 (trying not to read too much, I want to play the game blind) and I noticed this: 'Also known as "Easy Platoon" or "E-Z Platoon," the Edinburgh Army's Squad E is the main squad managed by the player in the game'
which seems awfully similar to this 'The M4A3E8 Sherman, also known as the Easy 8 or E-Z 8, is an upgraded M4A3 sherman...'
And those of you who know about VC4 might know that the design of the player's main tank is not so subtly based off of the M4 Sherman tank.
As a huge WW2 nerd I find this similarity amusing, and would be pissed to discover that said similarity was accidental.

@Redjive: Thanks, those panels took more time to hammer out than I'd care to admit so that's great to hear.

This looks absolutely fantastic. The shadows of on Misty, Christie, and Lexin's faces look really good as well.

@JoKeR: Yeah I was kinda worried it might give that effect. Is it because of the empty floor or the curtain in the last panel looking like part of the rug in the previous one? I might have to go in and change it a bit later.

*EDIT*
Made a quick change to the third panel and hopefully that improves the composition a bit. I know the rounded curtain/cloth in the last panel is going to look off beneath that round rug no matter what but this should still be an improvement, I hope.

@TheJGamer: I was definitely trying to go for a mood shift when entering the part of Palacitia where the Ethroy actually lives!

Is it just me, or does the living quarters seem like the exact opposite of Palacita?

First I thought the third panel was the ceiling of the last panel. Sorry.

I feel like that first establishing shot looks a bit awkward without some people in it, but I wanted to show a contrast between the bright bustling parts of Palacitia and the dim tranquility of the Ethroy's living quarters.

Wait now Iza doesn't remind me of the hooman, she reminds me of whoever it is, the.... Queen or something, some sort of matriarch, can't remember the name or the proper title. THATS who I was thinking of.

Man now I really want to read DrowTales

@Seven Rain
It's definitely... Interesting. It's heavily based in D&D lore, and assumes you have a bit of knowledge of the Underdark. I found it when I barely knew what D&D was (ah, the days of my youth), and hadn't the slightest bit of knowledge of any of the lore. The original DTales art is black and white (or at least it was when I first started it, I think I took a look at it last year and they had filled in the colour) and the dark skin tone of Iza combined with the menacing armour reminded me of... Actually she reminds of the one human chick who's in the arena.
(You'll know what I'm talking about if you read it)

Anyways the Underdark is a pretty horrible place, worse than The Outside, and they writers pulled very few punches in terms of censoring damn near anything. Some of this is amusing: anything involving Blueberry, for example, and in some cases a bit off putting; a character who is a pedo who keeps stalking one of the MCs, and also some Resident Evil level villainy-ness.

I'd give it a 4/5. Overall it's pretty good, as long as you keep track of major plot events.

@JoKeR: It's crazy how he was just gonna be a random background character. I dunno if I'll ever manage to work on a WOE sequel but him and his sisters have definitely solidified places in it if I do.

@Redjive: Interesting. I've heard of Drowtales, but never checked it out or tried reading it.

Now I know what this reminds me of!
Drowtales!
Iza's armour looks a lot like some of the armour in that comic (which is a very very odd one), and the story has a bit of similarity as well, although not much. That's been bothering me for like three days (why this episode seemed so familiar) and now I know what it reminded me of

Ah Renny. Never change.

I know why Renny is my favourite of the side characters.

@sentiashinou: It really does help hammer home that they're related even before it's stated in-comic.

For what it's worth, I like that you can see all of their eyes on the first page where all three of them show up together. :3

I was torn on whether to show Renny's eyes open in-comic or keep them perpetually squinting, but I couldn't resist that expression.

As for Iza she'll get a more formal introduction soon! Her design still needed a lot of ironing out, which is part of what made this page take longer. (Though it's hardly an excuse for that long of a break.)

She was originally a completely different character, something more along the lines of Merle from Escaflowne, (and with a huge crush on Ixis.) This was reflected in a bit of dialogue between Ixal and Xellis that I later edited/retconned as her character was scrapped and replaced with her current form. She was just an overall useless character and a remnant of old-ass WOE writing. I like having the characters acknowledge Ixis being exceptionally cute but I don't want to give WOE any unnecessary harem anime flavorings, (though I couldn't help but keep Renny's teasing in despite the jealousy no longer being part of her actual character.)

@JoKeR: We know the who, and the how will be revealed by the end of the chapter as well!
(Sorry for the late reply, my initial reply must've gotten eaten by my browser.)

@Redjive: That'd be hilarious. Imagining Dalson with a plastic straw and little darts.

Christy is very much adorable. D'awwwww.

Gee, I wonder who could possibly be responsible for Ixis' parent's murders *cough* Sirius and Dalton *cough*

Also, the scene with the loud twangy noise, I thought that was Dalton hitting Ixis with a dart or something, didn't realize that was Ixis' injuries acting up.
