TWACK!
I was going to add a sound fx to the 'Skeeve-punched-in-the-face' panel, but I think it looks better without it.
I think Skeeve's expression is enough to get the point across anyways XD
'It is I, Guardian Morgan'
In the written version of SotB: Eternity,
after Heart/Morgan says 'Its is I, Guardian Morgan', Kei responds with:
'oh my gawd Heart! Who talks like that? stop being so dorky'

I decided not to put it in due to layout issues :(
Elaine's dress
I like drawing Elaine.
I couldn't decide which dress she should wear for this appearance (since she can change the way she manifests her clothing)
Went with her normal dress this time. Although I greatly considered keeping her nude under her crest >:)
Throw'n Tornadoes
Nicole wasn't really trying to kill Rimy (She IS a Guardian)
but if not for Rimy's Aura shield, the attack could have broken bones or even been fatal!

In a later chapter, we get to see different version of Nicole's Tornadoes. I still haven't decided how I should vary their appearance though ><
Tornado Page!
I like this page! :D

I really had fun making this page, although I may work on the way Nicole's tornadoes look in future pages
still, this page makes me smile!
Time to Blow
While I was working on this page I kept thinking of the line 'Time to blow' for some reason
I remember it from a movie call 'Drive' with Kadeem Hardison and Mark Dacascos.
Dacascos's character says it right before detonating an explosive that a villain was wearing. And Hardison responds 'time to blow?' and shakes his head.

I know...but it was funny back in the nineties I guess.

And there aren't even any explosions on this page :/
The Guardian Crest
More about it will be explained later so I won't give away too much here.

Every Guardian has a representation of their core strength called their 'Crest'
it usually is very ornate and depicts the guardian's elemental affinity and sometimes their patron animal/creature

Guardians powers are usually based on an element (Earth, Water, Wind or Fire) but some guardians are attuned to other powers (like Light and Dark)
Some Guardians (usually the Elder ones) can manipulate more than one element.
Heart can use Fire and Wind, while Elaine can only use Water.
Kei is an odd one. She is attuned to Earth, yet she frequently uses Wind
Nicole is a very powerful wind-attuned Guardian...as she shall soon demonstrate ;)
Aura shields
I have to rework the way the Hex Aura Shield looks like,
I'm not happy with it
it hasn't been turning out like it did in earlier pages
it's a work in progress I guess
As Rimy gets better with it, I will get better at drawing it XD
Missed Text Message
Normally, I would title the page after a line of dialog within the page....
but since no one actually says anything on this page.

I guess Gwyneth's text sorta counts, but its not that easy to read. :/
I'm really loving this entire stretch. :)
I'm Korean!
Chulhoon was originally the character of friend of mine on Final Fantasy XI
He was also the leader of our Linkshell.
Ah I still miss those days ; ;

The character Chulhoon was created to honor him (he's not dead or anything)
Many of the cast of SotB are designed after friends of mine! Of course I exercised a bit of artistic license with them though!
is she texting?
Normally, a cellphone signal would not be able to travel outside a plane-shifted zone. But for some reason Gwyneth is able to text. If Reiko or Chulhoon had tried to use their phones, they would have had no signal.
So, how is Gwyneth doing it?

Magical phone?
She is on Verizon?
She isn't actually texting, she is pretending to text to avoid Skeeve?
hmm
Oddly, my comment didn't show up when I posted the page.

If I remember it correctly, I was concerned that Skeeve's font is difficult to read. I will correct it on the next page.
I'm sorta 'meh' with this page. I really just don't like Skeeve I guess.
Meh...
I'm not too fond how this page came out.
I don't feel I did Chulhoon justice with this weak 'fight' scene.
I'll have plenty of chances to make it up to him though.
Ugh...That took awhile
Finally, an update!
not quite a regular schedule yet, but I'm getting there!
Corporation Kids
As Gwyneth is explaining, the School (Eternal Vision) is supported by the major corporations.
Even though it is not a private school, most of the student body is composed of the children of corporate employees. There is a screening process where students are required to take an aptitude test to determine admittance and placement.
Wealth does in fact, play a role in admittance, but not placement.
Rim Marie is actually quite gifted, being placed in a class above her age group. But she ranked 4th in test scores in her class under Cleo Ballard (1st and class representative) Gwyneth Dorlynn (2nd) and Audra Wilford (3rd)

ah..Gwyneth, she is TOTALLY crushing on Rimy!
Clueless Reiko
Before you ask, Yes. Reiko is THAT clueless!
She is actually pretty intelligent (she wouldn't be in that school if she wasn't) she just has tunnel vision.
In her defense though, Chulhoon is really good at being inconspicuous. :D



Whew! finished this page on the 31st of May (I said I would see if I could get one out before June)
The next page may not make it out by next Thursday though, but I will do my best with the time I have!

Dani-Chan!
Danielle Elizabeth SinClaire!

Dani was the main character of a comic I made when I was in high school called 'The Legend of Phoenix'
Gwyneth and Pensila were also from her comic. I am currently re-writing that comic (renamed 'Eternal Flame') as Danielle's backstory. I don't know if it will take 'full' comic form due to my limited time.

As for Dani's role in 'Song of the Butterfly'....well she has a pretty big part(s) in the story. I'm sorta worried she will overshadow poor Rimy since she is a more developed character. You will get to see a lot more of her in coming chapters.

...heh heh heh :D
Easter Bunny twarted my update
That thug the Easter Bunny showed up last week and we engaged in fisticuffs!
I won of course, but the fight delayed my update.
Curse you! You long-eared, egg-toting FREAK!
A bit late
Sorry about the late page.
Got caught up on some other projects. Had to rush this one a bit, so I might have to go back and tweak it a bit later ;)
