I'll add grays tomorrow.

Okay, done. I don't like using gradients but for night skies... I don't really have a good way of painting them yet.

This gnome would be on my first round pick on any quest I ended up on.

Yeah right? He's tiny so he's easy on the rations, he can see in the dark, cast spells, and functions like a portable entertainment system.

Why is that gnome wearing a robe?
Because goats can hear a zipper from a mile away.

Ha ha! Run away, goat!

Uh... yeah... That's some trick alright.

So... I need your feedback, folks.

Is it clear that Aegon is throwing his voice, making it look like Bob is singing the song, when in fact, he's actually singing?

Or is the fact that the word balloon is pointing at Bob completely override any such notion?

I was wondering what the trick was. It's a bit hard to tell actually.

Okay, I'll have to tweak this one so it works. Thanks!

I didn't get it until I read the page title. Maybe if you worked the word ventriloquist in the conversation it might be more apparent. But most people read the title first anyway, I'm just backwards like that.

Songgu Kwon
Yeah, the dialog has to sell it more, definitely.

Wow. I was gonna say! That gnome is unashamedly proud of of his micro penis!
...
and his bestiality habit....
...
Did you see the movie "the Animal" lately or something?
Lol

Songgu Kwon
I've never seen "The Animal". It looks pretty ridiculous! Maybe I will...
Songgu Kwon 23rd Jan 2015, 1:04 AM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Okay, I tweaked it. Hopefully it makes more sense now. This was definitely a tricky one.

What do you guys think?
chris-tar 23rd Jan 2015, 3:01 AM edit delete reply
chris-tar
Definitely more comprehensible.
Perhaps if you made the word bubbles look more staticky, like sound waves somehow, and maybe a few sound lines emanating from Aegon, but that might kill the subtlety you are going for.
Songgu Kwon 23rd Jan 2015, 3:13 AM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Cool. Actually, a couple of lines coming out from Aeon will probably help to reinforce the idea. Thanks!

It's the Gnomish mask of (insert handy skill that would help in your current quest here)

Gnomish mask of goat loving.

I'm looking at this with fresh eyes. It's still a bit confusing because the guide is naming Aegon but then addressing Bob in the second sentence. Admittedly - I don't remember all of their names and it makes a lot more sense once I know who's who. My 2¢.
Songgu Kwon 23rd Jan 2015, 5:53 PM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Good point. I'll try rephrasing the last bit of dialog. Thanks!

Okay, I added "Bob" at the end.

Looks like Aegon is still trying to impress Blackfeather.

He is kind of a showboat.

I have to say that night sky came out really well. That first panel would make a nice banner ad even.

Songgu Kwon 24th Jan 2015, 2:12 PM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Thanks! Yeah, it sure is bannery.

What's that inbetween Katagnar and the little Rodent dude? Everything else seems clear enough to me, even before reading the other comments. Great work as always! Oh, and I think the gradient sky works fine in this case... shhhh.

Oh, ha ha! Why, it's roasted meat on the bone! What kind of meat? I don't know.

I wouldn't have noticed the sky if you hadn't drawn attention to it, myself.
Songgu Kwon 25th Jan 2015, 2:44 PM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
That's right, folks. There's nothing peculiar about the skies here. Pay no attention...
