And that's the end of Chapter 3!

I'm going to need somewhere around two weeks at least to write and thumbnail Chapter 4. Stay tuned.

I try to post sketches (some Myst related) daily on Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr etc. To get these, as well as learn about new pages, use the links at the top of this page to follow me.

So many people have been so encouraging. Thank you! :huuug:

Speaking of pancakes, where's the print version right now? I know it doesn't really matter until it arrives, but for some reason I just like to know these things...

I really hope you manage to finish the comic. Really hope to see this turned into a fully colored and published comic.

BTW, this comic got me thinking...an animated series of BoA would sure be awesome.

@ThedStranger: I would LOVE to make it as an animated film/series. I wrote the script originally for that intention, but a comic is so much easier to execute.

It's rough and monochromatic, but I think it tells the story how I want, and each page doesn't take forever, so I am optimistic that I can take it to the end. If I continue at this rate, it will take a few years. I love this story so much and I've wanted to tell it in a graphic format for so long ... there's no lack of motivation!

I hope to get it published (I don't know about coloring it though. That's not something I would want to do >_<)

About coloring; were you thinking of an animated version as being colored, or would that be monochrome as well? And why wouldn't you want to do coloring on the comic? (not pushing you to do it - just interested)

@Marein: What I meant was, I personally wouldn't want to color the comic. It's a lot of work to choose good colors and do it well. Maybe the day will come when I want someone else to do it. But right now I'd rather focus on the writing/drawing. I don't want to get burned out. >_<

But in my ideal world, where I had an animation studio with lots of designers, animators, painters, I'd do the story as an animated film in full color. :) Maybe someday! :D

An animated film of BoA, that's something Miyazaki should make. I've seen a few of his films and they are really awesome.

This comic is better than pancakes!!!

Seriously though, I have loved the whole Myst series since I was a kid. In fact, Myst was the game that inspired me to become a graphic designer, and hopefully someday, a game designer (I already have a couple in the works). This is a great idea, and I'd love to see it bloom into a full-fledged, printed comic series. Great work!!

Please keep going with this - Myst and all things with it have been a great inspiration in my life, and it is always a treat to see things like this.

And I do recall at one point there WAS plans for a Myst TV series - but it got shelved by Cyan due to changes they made and for some elements that were added [one of them being a scene of Atrus and Catherine consummating their relationship]...Still would be awesome to see some sort of movie/animation for the book series though.

You know, Pancakes are delicious, but not as good as waffles. I wonder if Atrus likes waffles. Did the D'ni eat waffles?

@Nagi: That's some pretty juicy gossip! Really? An Atrus/Catherine sex scene? hehehe Somehow I find that amusing.

I do remember hearing about plans for making a tv series. I even sent a letter to Mandalay asking if I could work on it because I loved Myst so much. I never had any response. I didn't realize it was shelved for those reasons! good to know.

Myst has been a big influence in my life as well. I'm definitely going to keep going to the end (but maybe with no sex scene)! :)

Um, I'm going to start making up some canon and say that, yes, all D'ni have an innate affection for waffles.

Gosh, this is so much awesome that I loose the ability to speak English properly. I mean, I'm only twenty so I've been growing playing the Myst series of games. I remember being really little and watching my parents and older brother struggling on enigmas and such. I rediscovered the myst universe only two weeks ago when a friend asked me what was my favorite video game and I suddenly remembered Myst. And it's by total coincidence that I end up here today (I'm reading the Seated Lady and went wandering while waiting for the next pages).
Do you authorize me to translate it in French so that I can make it read to my mum ? My dad and bro can read in English but not her.
Aaaah, now I want to play to Myst again from the beginning!

@Melhyrïa: Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you're enjoying the comic. That's really sweet, that Myst is such a nice memory for your whole family.

It's awesome that you found my comic from Seated Lady yaaay! :)

I'd be honored if you wanted to translate it into French! Did you mean to put it online, or just for personal viewing? Email me at larkinheather@gmail.com and let's discuss. Someone else is translating it into Russian and we've worked out a good system, I think.

Wait- am I the only one who noticed that in the Myst Comic in print images, in one of them Heather's hand is in nearly the same position as Atrus'?
