Page 93 marks the end of Chapter 4! I can't even believe it ...
Now I need to take a break from posting to write and prepare Chapter 5. Like last time, it'll be a few weeks. But hopefully I'll have some other good things to post in-between.
Thanks for reading!
Great communication of the emotions here. I love the last panel, Atrus` expression is just perfect. Poor dude, he`s in for it now...
I don`t think Flame likes Gehn. :P
You've captured all their moods so perfectly. Poor Atrus!
This was one of my all-time favorite books when I was little, and I'm glad someone's decided that it shouldn't just fade away. Keep up the good work, and I'll be checking back lots! :D
You've made Gehn's distance, coldness and lack of affection to even his mother so very apparent in every panel.
In the second panel here, what is Anna looking at? Is there some significance in Gehn's cloak that somehow answers her questions in panel 1?
Thanks for your steadfast perseverance on this project!
@Emor D'ni Lap: :) Thank you!
Oh, that's an interesting interpretation of panel 2! I like that. What I was going for was this: Gehn starts to back away, and when someone backs away I feel like you tend to look at their feet briefly to see where they are going ... So Anna looks at his feet before checking out his face to see why he might be backing away.
That's the idea anyway. I was having trouble with that panel. I think I needed to play with the position of Gehn more. He's the one moving, not Anna, and that's not so clear. It looks like she's backing away instead of him in that panel.
Thanks for your comments and encouragement Emor D'ni Lap! :D I saw your other comment and I really appreciated that. I'm glad you're enjoying all the little details I try to put in, and your frequent comments mean a LOT to me!
steadfast perseverance! :D
Just want to add that to me at least the second panel was clear. The 'movement lines' and the movement in his cloak made it clear to me that it was Gehn who was moving. I thought Anna was looking at Gehn's arms, because she had been holding him there.
I can't wait for the next chapter! Weeeee!!!
Just a little nitpick, but a few pages ago Gehn says "I am Gehn, son of Atrus". To avoid confusion, shouldn't it say "Aitrus"?
@Ahlisendar: Ah, but that was how it was spelled in the book, you see? ;) I'd always assumed the spelling change in BoT was for the reader's benefit, and not because they were "actually" different. So in my mind, their names are spelled the same!
@Kaveman: Oh, it was? Shows what I know about anything. :P
@Ahlisendar: The D'ni language is phonetic, and the spelling of Aitrus and Atrus is identical in D'ni. I agree with @Kaveman on the reason for the spelling difference.
I just found this site and read through all the archives. I'm in awe of how well you've done the character expressions! The Book of Atrus is an old favorite of mine, so I'll definitely be following this. I look forward to seeing more!
I love this so much!! I'm so glad you've decided to do this, and I look forward to reading more!
We've patiently awaited the return of Atrus, Anna, Gehn and Flame...
I'ts been a month now!
Whether you can continue soon or not, please let us know that all is well with you, Heather!
@Emor D'ni Lap: Indeed
My husband found this site last night and I was so excited to see this come to life! I LOVE the Myst series, even started to learn D'ni writing, and the such. I'm so happy to see the book in a visual manner! Keep up to great work and can't wait to see more! Though, there is one panel I'm not looking forward to that's coming up soon...
I really miss this...
Any chance of seeing new pages any time soon?
shorah, i'm really enjoying this comic! I even follow it on my phone. Thank you for including the D'ni language. I loved seeing the guild name on Gehn's cloak. May we see more of the language in the D'ni city?
waiting waiting waiting waiting
My poor mouse is getting worn out checking this page every day hoping there will be something new :( I don't suppose there is a teaser of some sort you might be able to dangle above us? pretty please?
(seriously though, i know how life gets busy and so i will keep waiting and waiting :D )
@Rhee: Thanks for waiting! I was moved by your comment. You inspired me to post a teaser: http://larkinheather.tumblr.com/post/33721447703/hey-guys-i-hadnt-had-any-time-to-work-on- the. I hope that's satisfying for now ... feel free to prompt me again! At least until I start posting pages again :)
Thanks! Just what I needed :D
SO EXCITED!! haha
Thanks for the teaser! Sooo looking forward to chapter 5.
@larkinheather: That definitely came across for me. It seems like Gehn backed away and withdrew his arms, brushing her off.
