The Make Kez Laugh Contest was extended last week due to the craziness of me moving (what's even crazier is I haven't moved yet because we didn't reserve a TRUCK in time. ARRGHH), and ends for real THIS SATURDAY, on the 22nd. If you want to win some awesome comic swag, throw something together and enter! It's not about art skills here, just make me laugh hardest! Details here!
So, yes, haven't moved yet. I was supposed to on Saturday, but it didn't happen. I will be moving on Tuesday instead. I guess this past weekend was a huge "back to college" weekend or something. My semester doesn't start until August 31, so it totally slipped my mind. In the meantime, we nabbed ourselves an awesome futon, mountain bike (Kez will no have car! D:) and other assorted furniture from craigslist and garage sales! Craigslist is...awesome. When you're not being scammed. Ran into that so many times!
Not much to say, actually. I rather enjoyed sketching and inking this page, but I lost interest coloring it midway through. Of course, it could be Garanos' fault, as I decided to read through Alex Heberling's archives again during my prime comic time, arrrghhh. I did another "inxperiment" in panel 4. More heavy ink stuff. It's fun! But a very different feel for me. I'm fond of contour lines mainly, not "spacing" with inks. I have no idea if those are the correct terms, but that's what my brain tells me.
A few other things I suppose: we all realize Ravar does not have a tail? This is a mental PROJECTION? As in, not real? He had a tail, but no longer has it. What happened to it? Re-read this page very carefully.
Next, Ravar's talismen? The "kireken?" We understand it is important, yes? It flashes colors symbolizing things? Usually the crystal is clear, showing only the color of Ravar's shirt. When it is an obvious color, and especially, growing hot or shining light...something is happening. I'll have a section on the world page about the significance of "energy colors" shown by the kireken as soon as this chapter gets near the end, and it's explained in-comic.
Anyways, this page right here is basically the end of the comic. Talon just died, and Ehranah and Ravar are about to join him, stuck in his head. Their own bodies become vegetative outside of Talon's mind, and Vrin kicks Ravar in the balls before leaving him to his demise. Then Azaq burns the house down.
The end! (man, if only it were April fools. I would so pull that on you guys!)
