– Hey, this is the first time Modest has been in the comic for about 50 strips!
– Here’s the sign I left at our Fanime booth on Sunday evening. We had to leave a day early. Thanks to Lena Ma for the photo. I hope someone got to take it home!
Yeah, that’s pretty mean. On the upside, you’re the one your Mom the giant snake monster DOESN’T want to eat. It’s something.
Wait, baby Modest doesn’t count?
You’re hands are much more detailed now and I was going to say I was impressed with how much you’ve improved since the first comic…then you gave Medusa stubs. Is that because she’s a gorgon? Do gorgons not have hands?
It’s more of an abstract thing. When I started the comic I decided I’d give everyone mitten hands as part of the cartoony look. I’ve never had a problem drawing hands, but I thought this would be fun. Around strip 20 or so I gave up on the idea and started doing more realistic hands for most of the characters. Medusa keeps her mitten hands because I think it’s cute. Sometimes I just draw her with flippers and sometimes she has a thumb and forefinger. It depends on what she’s doing. In one of the earlier strips she has her hands pressed against a glass window and you can see she has hand prints that suggest fully segmented fingers.
Clearly she grows fingers as she ages. That’s kinda what happened to her mom, at any rate.
I like mitten hands. Fingers are waggly knuckled monstrosities.
Too confused to comment…
She has repeatedly been told by somewhat reliable sources that she was not the princess, but she was also told that she didn’t save Urano from a giant chocodile. Anyone who has read book 2 knows that she did save Urano from a giant chocodile. So now it just may be possible that she is the princess.
It’s OK we STILL love you~!
Sorry, Modest, but your princess is in another castle.
(Someone had to do it.)
[Also great to be back after not having power for a weekend, followed immediately by no internet or TV for two weeks.]
That sucks!!! 🙁
Modest certainly does conform to a number of Princess tropes.
Oddly enough, I’d probably be thinking the same thing if I was Modest.
She has her priorities set to video game!
I do love how much the quality of the art has improved since the beginning, I started reading at strip 3 so I know how big of a change has occurred.
Still I am waiting for two things: 1) Medusa and Jake to level up so that they can reach Marah’s stats, a balanced party is a good party! 2) One of the snakes on Medusa’s head start talking and everyone’s expression, I’m expecting something priceless!
I’d like to see that too!
Medusa, You were always a princess to me!!! 🙂
A Princess of Pokémon! ( and that’s even better than a princess of Yeld!) 😀
I love how much more detailed the comic is now Jake, keep it up!
Oh God, this is going to go right to her head! And the snakes heads too! ^-^
Thinking the same thing as Modest here.
Well, the girl’s got her priorities….
