This one's a difficult one to comment on, pretty naturally given it's largely just ominous shadows and ominous dialogue. Never really know how much to say on pages of this sort.

Tried to get a bit cinematic with the shading and lighting on this, but I do feel like it could've been better; that is something I'd like to try and mess around with at some point, see if I can't get a handle on doing more complex lighting without having to sink a gigantic amount of time into it.

Eh. Either way, do hope everyone enjoys this one; probably doesn't give a huge amount to go on but might fuel some speculation or something, at the very least we know the Light That Remembers is continuing to be a factor going forward.

Does bare noting that what can be made out of the design here might not be 100% final? The page was always planned to be like this so this isn't just covering for things, but while we have a design we like for this character we've been wondering about doing another take of it, so details might not be entirely one-to-one going forward. Gist of this will be pretty much the same though.

Either way, we'll be taking a break for the next few weeks and then we'll be starting up chapter 27, Claim My Kingdom. It'll be on the shorter end - actually as originally written it was the shortest chapter since the sixth, though I had to go back and expand on it a bit after the fact so it doesn't have that status now - but it's going to be a major one, so do hope everyone enjoys.

Heh.... Yeah, having both chapters done really does feel like a load-off for us. Between all the stuff that happened over the course of these two chapters, everything was pretty close to the grind and it's a huge relief to get a bit of time off.

This is a pretty hard page to comment on, though.... This character won't be showing up until the next chapter, and like Martin said, their design's still going through a few tweaks and modifications.... Will say that part of the reason her design is taking more work than usual is they have a sort of theatric air about them.

Hope everyone did enjoy our Christmas storyline, know it had a lot of great moments me and Martin loved to bring about. ^^

And if you didn't enjoy all these warm fuzzies then, don't worry. The next chapter will have quite a bit of grit to it. ^^ It's something we've been looking forward to for a looong time, and I'm honestly sort of chomping at the bit to draw a few key moments. We'll see it once it comes in.
