@Guest: It's a complicated and unhealthy relationship.
@HVoice: My needs when it comes to comics are simple and predictable.
@Broktus: All good questions. Also, I might have given him less symmetrical features, the only problem with it is it's difficult to not just make it look like you drew it wrong xD
My gosh your art is beautiful QwQ I love the look it's so clean! I'm finding the handwritten text a little hard to read though I'm afraid to say...
@HVoice: Oh the same, I'm just lamenting not being able to have such dark black filled pages like I've been having before lol. This chapter is predominantly filed with quite a light scene.
This chapter's been so pale, I miss my sharpie ;w;

Ah'll sithee later.
Making excuses about the finished product? Now THAT's more relatable to me as an artist.

Glasses are gone now, I'm gunna miss 'em )=

@Merrsharr: It was meant to be a wide stance action pose, but without the legs in view and mebbe just cuz I cocked up it does end up making her look like she's got the biggest booty in town. Ah well.

Or maybe I just like a big ass.

I suck at scanning pencils lol I used to do it all the time but now all that lives in my brain now is how to fix up inks to look nice.

It's decided then, I'll do a Q&A at the end of the comic :> I might even do it as a video, that'd be fun.

In the meantime however. So when it came to the design of the Fair's face, I had a particular goal in mind. I didn't just want him to look ugly; I wanted to make it be that even if you squinted or tilted your head and tried to be a little generous... He still wouldn't stop being ugly. Not even when you got used to him. I don't entirely think I managed to achieve this however, as I definitely got used to him pretty quickly (That could just be me however, as I've ended up spending a lot of time looking at him simply from the nature of the task). Also I can't deny that I accidentally made him look kinda like a dark elf in Skyrim, especially the first times I drew him. Wasn't my intention but these kinds of things happen. Seems I'm not used to actively trying to draw extremely ugly people... It's so much easier when you're not actually trying to lol.

HIGH DRAMA

@Luxnight: There's a few things to consider, if you're asking in seriousness =)

Most of eye emotion comes through what the eyebrows are doing. Eyebrows say a lot. Then there's how wide the eyes are, how much of the iris is visible. How focused the gaze is (how close together the pupils are and such), and how small the pupil is, too. A large pupil conotes emotions such as sadness, or love, or calm, etc, while a narrow pupil conotes anger, or fear, or surprise, etc. Then there's surface aesthetic stuff like shinies which make things look nice, or drawing shinies in a way that implies the eyes are watery from tears (which I shoulda done with more care here probably, kinda forgot). I also find making characters irises paler when they're liked shocked or angry or wtv helps get the feeling across better since it accentuates the small pupils thing more, even tho it's total bull lololol.

And that's my impromptu eye emotion tutorial =D
@Zelkova: That's really nice of you to say. Don't worry though, you and other readers of this comic do really make me feel happy to work on it and make me feel appreciated ^^ It helps a great deal. Thanks a lot for the support!
Man the King's been such an interesting character to me throughout all this lol, for ways different than another character might be. He turned out very differently from how I expected, but it never felt like he actually CHANGED as such. It feels to me like he was consistent from the start, except I was being deceived as much as anyone else around him might have been. I'm the kinda writer who just sorta lets characters do what they want to an extent so I was pretty happy with how he turned out.

I've got a lot to say about him when the story's over, but I've got a lot to say about a LOT of things in general. About the characters, why I wrote the story the way I did, about the comic making process. Because I've learned a lot working on this story. I'm thinking of having a lil' Q&A at the end of everything if people would be interested in that. Not that we're quite there yet.

Spoiler: It will be good.

First meeting~ Oh I just realized, I suppose this dispels the theory that the Fair and the King are the same person xD Sorry guys.

Ah'll sithee later.
@Danny: Yeah drawing her drawing on the floor gave me bad feels xD
