Oh,good–they’re relatively harmless. ^^
I really like the combination of soft and sharp focus, here. It leads the eye nicely. 🙂
AAaand the story of the wandering tardis-carriage continues. 🙂
I’m really glad to hear you like the pages and hope you’re looking forward to what’s coming in the future.
I agree. I’m not sure if the intention was to show who is most adapted to the presence of her magic, but it definitely could be used that way. You also have the rigidness of their postures to show who is most relaxed and comfortable around the arch mage.
Also, I bet her tea probably tastes exquisite.
Well fine, on that topic all I’m saying now is, that the different behavior of Anne, Erik and Egon is not unintentional. ^^
Sigh, such a wonderful comic and my first comment is to carp about horse drawn carriages. The issue being how four wheel carriages turn. Most historical four wheel horse drawn vehicles use what’s known as the “fifth wheel” method for steering around turns. A fifth wheel is a pivot that allows the front axle to turn and follow the path of the horses. The front axle is one piece and the front wheels only change direction as the axle pivots. What this all means is you drew a carriage that can’t turn. For a “fifth wheel” turning method to work requires is that the undercarriage be made in such a way as to allow the front wheels to move under the carriage body. This is also the reason that all four wheel carriages with “fifth wheel” steering have smaller front wheels. Ah well, if it’s any consolation, I draw at about a 12 year old’s ability.
Thanks for pointing that out! When writing and doing the art for the comic we try to get proper references for everything where there’s a real-world equivalent, however more often than not to save time we only get a few ref pics. This is what basically happened here as well. Sometimes, of course, there’s nothing to reference really, like the magic, or roads made via magic. That said carriages, in general, are not like that, in Tales of Midgard in-universe carriages work exactly as they do in real life, so yeah… That’s off for now, but since you pointed this out we can do better next time! Thank you for doing so! 🙂
