Pg 29: Half-What?

This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle explains to Yoru that he is adopted and that both his Parents are dead, but won’t elaborate on how they died. Yoru’s reaction is impressively calm.

Creator’s Commentary: I thought Yoru would be hell to draw and surprised myself by doing a pretty consistent job! Expressions were quite a challenge, mainly because they’re so keyed down. This was an exercise in subtlety. Both characters are being very controlled; Tinuvielle because she’s worried about upsetting her son, and Yoru because… well… that’s what the nuns have been teaching him these past six months. He has demon blood, can you imagine what that’d be like if it wasn’t controlled?

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.
