Sunday Sketch #6: A Pig in the Hand…

Okay, so it’s not a Sunday, but my computer was crashing like crazy yesterday! Anyway here you go – a tiny little baby pig sitting in someone’s hand – how sweet! And yes, baby guinea pigs really are this small! I think I’ve copied all the picture of my calander that I want too, the others aren’t quite as nice. Or maybe I’ve had my fill of piggys for a while? We’ll see…

Pg 30: The long and the short of it

This week in Epic Fail: Yoru becomes impatient.  Tinuvielle explains her decision to leave him in the temple’s care.

Creator’s Commentary: Aww, wasn’t Yoru a cute baby?

In the original, pre-photoshop version of this page the final frame was the smallest.  It clearly needed more prominence so I made it bigger, but in doing so lost the space in the ‘flashback’ frames I had left for text.  This resulted in the cleric’s face in frame 7 becoming obscured.  Though not intentional, I actually quite like this – Tinuvielle handing her child over to some unknown, faceless priestess kinda adds something.

There’s a fair bit of dialogue in this scene so I tried putting some of the speach bubbles behind the characters since I didn’t want it covering all my pretty artwork.

Pg 25: No Smoking!

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle expresses her hatred of smoking and is shocked to learn exactly how fast her baby is growing up.  Yoru says Hi.

Creator’s Commentary: It seems I’m getting pithier with my page recaps!

I am delighted to finally introduce Tinuvielle’s son, Yoru.  He’s been sitting in my website banner for some time now, but I never revealed who he was (though I’m sure some of you suspected).  Well, now you know.  I hope it wasn’t an anticlimax.

I stole the dialogue in the first frame directly from the lady who role-plays Tinuvielle, word for word, because it made me laugh.  Doing the facial expressions was a scream too.

Also, smoking is bad.  (Actually I really do hate smoking, it damages your health and makes you smell bad.  Really bad.  Don’t do it).

Ani means Sister.  So when Yoru says “Ani Kaitei” that’s “Sister Kaitei.” ‘Cos she’s a nun.
