realized I flipped around the eye patch after the page was all done. Can't bring myself to fix it at that point, so umm, at this point, onward! perhaps I'll just say that the gods messed up reality when they interfered. Yeah, its the gods' fault.
re XxWhiterosesxX: I enjoyed drawing the trickster god a lot, particularly the smile.
re comic king: thanks ^_^
re Yarochisai: I really enjoyed drawing that particular face ^_^
re yuri21: The place where the gods are is a very...metaphysical space. Form is more cosmetic than functional. both can speak and see normally, they just choose a form that they think suits them.
re StellaFrost: I know more tricksters than fire gods too. I think they just tend to have more memorable stories.
re Azhtann: sadly the sleeve fish is even more passive about watching events than the two man shaped fellows. He's not going to be leaping to anyone's aid.
re Fang Shinobi: yup, a little more exposition will be forthcoming.
re ScreechTheMighty: ^_^ I'm a D&Der myself, but stuck to world religions for these fellows.
re Onasaki: sort of. A little less green and muscly and a little more...burney
re browndogg1616: thank you very much ^_^
re AyoWolf: thanks ^_^
re Skarlog: I know, stupid deities busting out all of my 4th walls.
I hope those poor soldiers are okay. :( But I don't think anyone would survive that except for Joan and Teddy. Also, damn you stupid god! =P You've wrecked Joan's chances of getting away quietly. Going "fwoom" is like announcing your presence to the entire world. Though, nice touch since it somewhat fits with his personality.
Btw, you know what Teddy needs? A nice teddy bear. =P Also, what happens if vampires eat human food? Do they die or is there just no nutrition value for them?
Also, thanks to watching some Horror-themed show, I'm now voicing Joanne's "words" with some demonic effects in my head. :P
Also, cool... those are some neat fire skills there. I doubt they count as Joan's repertoire of skills though.
Ah, so the gods can look like anything and could even speak and look like Joan, Teucer or someone else.
Also, this likely sounds harsh but still you need to work on your action scenes a bit more and add fluidity. The characters are all standing up stiff straight and no one ever does that while they're attacking or under attack. Not unless it's a horror comedy scene or something. :P Try looking at scenes from action movies, manga, etc. Or consulting some Andrew Loomis books(well, that's what my artist friends were into).
Hope you enjoyed your new year's and christmas. =)
I think this might just be the coolest thing to happen in the comic. I'm curious about Joan's reaction to this.
@crystalgardian: I'd imagine that it has one of those layered voices you hear when people are possessed in movies and video games. I suspect they can hear Joan's voice, but something very different and powerful has been added.
Well, there goes my "non-smiting" theory. I hope those two ravens (I remember that one was named Memory in Viking lore) survive. I bet they did. You don't go accidentally smiting your surveilance units.
