– This page was a lot of fun to draw. Snow, a big nasty Faire and the return of Jaime and Michelle!
– This morning is you last chance to vote for Modest Medusa for Best Webcomic in the Stumptown Comics Arts Awards. Voting closes this evening. I”d love your vote!
Gllaarrgh indeed. I love the last panel.
The other guard guys looked much friendlier.
Its the red sweater, just cover it up and you’ll be ok. Shh…
This shows us why the Prince has these Faire as henchmen since up til now it seems they’ve mostly been seen as easily tricked or beaten up.
Got My Book Jake, thanks
Twenty-nine parts?! Yoosh! Yer a madman, Jake!
So this makes me wonder what the guard turns into if he leaved Yeld. Or what the Prince would turn into. CU changed. Modest stayed the same BUT she went through the toilet 😀
Would the Bitchy Mermaids be unstoned if they were dragged through the door? Does anyone even remember the naive fun that was the BM days?
My plan is to get back to that kind of fun after this season.
Yaay! (Not that this is not good..it is just a different comic)
um…a little help please? who where jamie and michelle? i did notice their pointed ears though, so, if they were humans from our world, yeld definitely changed them!
They were the inn keepers from early in season 2. Michelle returned with a fake beard in season 3.
I love the color work, how far ahead do you story board out your seasons Jake? its got to take a lot of planning out.
I had Season 2 and 3 pretty much figured out around strip 50. So… 6+ months in advance. But that’s just kind of a rough outline. Things get filled in as I go. For example, I thought Withered Away would only be 10-12 strips!
Got my book!! Just for the record Jake don’t do the fold out things unless it’s detatchable because it’s hard on the book. So awesome. I’m about to get started on that thing we talked about.
SCARY WOMBAT-THINGIE WITH TEETHIES!!!!!!
(side question: are those people elves? they do have the pointed ears of one…
-I don’t remember who jamie and michelle are.
could you explain please?!)
Not elves. People from Yeld just have pointy ears. If you look back, you’ll see that. The Monster don’t, of course. Neither do the Vampires.
As I mentioned before, Jaime and Michelle run the inn.
Oh… now I remmember. Thank you for refreshing me!
One more question though…
when you said the creature with the club was a” big nasty Faire” did you mean magical Fairy or something else???
…Cause to me it looks like a human sized wombat with sharp, scary teeth. plus it has a club/spiky weapon, a fur cape, and weird armor.
Not that it’s a bad character, I’m just pondering. Continue on please…
It’s a Fairy. That wasn’t a slur of some kind. In Yeld fairy’s are big mean monsters. They form the core of Dragul’s army. I guess I’ve never called them Fairy in the comic. I refer to them as Fairy in both the coloring book and the Mermaid Hunters game.
Ah, now that makes sense.
Thank you! 🙂
I’m liking the story here, but just one continuity detail I caught. The henchmen’s club has alternating spikes in panel 4, but has 3 spikes per side in panel 5.
Keep up the good work!
Possibly the rows of spikes spin?
At what point was it established that these things are called Faire?
Someplace? I don’t remember. Anyway, that’s what they are.
Jake what software and such do you use to draw your comics and other work
All the drawing happens on paper using a non-photo blue drafting pencil and a Copic Multiliner. I scan the images into photoshop where I do all the coloring and lettering.
At the risk of sounding a little shallow… PRETTY SNOW!!!!!!!
Thanks! I like drawing snow!
Jake here’s an Idea for a weak or three of filler. Panel 1 Sketch Marah crouching Panel 2 Sketch you walking by. Panel 3 sketch her attacking. Then fill in the details. One strip is you getting a late night snack and Marahs waiting and pounces like a lion. another is you getting a cd to listen to you open your bathroom mirror to get your toothbrush there she is. Like how you said she used to and how she did to the mermaids.
Pffft! That’s great!
That last panel makes it look as if Faires have extensible jaws like a shark.
