The images for this page were a little simplistic, so I decided to experiment with some animation to pep things up. Let me know if its working ok (not sure how the glowing effects readability).
man in black: :)
re doom Bubbles: Hmmm, I've always imagined Bahamut as being in a permanent dreamlike state, so the dolphin example is somewhat apt. He's only a metaphorical fish, so he can break some biology rules.
re StellaFrost: More about Lucien and Drake's actions on the next page :)
re AmazingMaB: Thank you for all the support and your patience with the slow updates!
re IronDog: Thank you! With the low update rate I feel like I owe you guys some effort when I do get new pages up.
re Eva Emaria: Solifidians usually stay in the form they die in (unless they have species specific lore like werewolves). Dragons usually prefer their true form, so the majority pass on as dragons. Families who have relatives who die in human form often try to build large graves to approximate the size of their true form.
Oooooh, the animations are really cool! I like stuff like this occasionally in webcomics--it helps show that the digital medium has a lot more versatility than print, and it helps break up the pages a bit. ^_^ My only complaint is it doesn't stay on the pictures very long in the last panel, so I spent a frustrating amount of time to see all of them.
Looking forward to it. I'm curious if links between the living and the dead allow the living to glimpse the dead.
I have a feeling that part of why he is cranky is that he's the only one who knew those dragons that's still alive. It raises the question of connections. What have happened to the connections between dragons he never knew?
All of the images are from chapter 6 and 7 for those who had trouble seeing them. I liked that they faded, it emphasizes what Drake is saying.
