Good bye by *shilin is simply beautiful, from the way the lighting hits the characters to the wonderful amounts of emotion shown, plus everything in between such as the detailing in the clothing and jewels and the sublime background. This deviant's gallery is well worth a browse. ( Suggested by laniessa and Featured by AwsumZ )

I hate f**king idiots, but life sucks for everyone.
In love with your comic. Your characters are great.

The green stone on her sash (presumably another look for her crest) looks like one of three crests on page 40 of old knots. I like the general design of them. They're all so intricate, like all the small detailing on Veloces designs

it's the same one! I didn't want to make up another one on the spot so I just used the one on this drawing haha

Ahh, the little things you notice once you've read the same part like 3 times. And about rereading your comic, well, can i recommend that once you're finished with the book, that you write summaries of everything thus far? If you were to tell everything of importance, and perhaps add some of your thoughts to it, it'd be much, much easier to follow the story. I only now fully understood the whole beasthuman conflict (i hope)

I think I would rather leave it to the readers to figure out; in my opinion, writing summaries after the fact defeats the point of a comic (or any literary work) in the first place. If there are problems with understanding my story, either the reader could reread to pick up on things they missed, or I should work on my storytelling skills, which I will always continue to do so!

Aw.. It's just so difficult to keep track of a whole storyline when it moves along so slowly. I doubt everyone wants to reread parts every now and then because they lost the thread long ago. It can't dislike the fact that it moves so slowly, when it means the quality is so high, but i think a summary could be a way to make up for it. For me, it's just an excuse to reread certain parts, because holy dahm Shilin, this is the most beautiful comic/manga i have ever read, and it's definitely worth the wait. Especially this weeks update

thank you ;-; if it helps any, there are summaries to each volume on the cover images of each volume. It doesn't explain anything that could be confusing, but it summarizes the upcoming book. That's the best I can offer.
