Almost to the end of the chapter! Did I mention I'm finally going to be taking a short break? Once I get to the bumper I'm going to take a week to get ahead on my pages again. :) (And finish my commissions!)

Oooh, Mr. Stoat used the informal "Will" instead of "William". It seems he really likes him!

I think I've figured out why I don't like comics that use see-through speech balloons. Hehe.
Besides it being extremely distracting, of course.
Comics are an art form where it's pictures combined with words. The words are just as important as the drawings. People only make see-through speech balloons because they don't want to cover their art. But, if you do that, it's like you're trying to hide the words!

That's just me, though. ^^;

I agree with you about the speech balloons. The words and images need to complement and enhance each other. My personal goal has always been to also make each capable of standing alone; I have never pulled it off, but it's fun to try.

I'm going through my devwatch after being gone for four months, so I won't be able to comment on all of these.

I can't remember if I've mentioned this before, but I love how all the characters look very different despite some being the same or similar species.

Agreed on the speech bubble thing. See-through ones are very annoying.

Lovely page as usual! :D In response to what you said about transparent word balloons; in my opinion it makes it look like they didn't leave an actual emptier space in the art for the text to go, so they put it anywhere, and just thought 'I'll make the bubble see-through so my art can still be seen'. I think, for the most part, people who do that don't properly work out where their text is going in the first place. Just my two pence :)

That's probably the reason. :nod:

I recall that when the girl was introduced she was taller than him...

Oh, she is. You just have to remember not to count Will's hair. Hehe.
