Poor Mika's mom. What she doesn't know may hurt her. Her little girl isn't exactly avoiding faeries is she?

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but I'm experimenting a bit with the artwork. I think I may have been over-using tones on the character's faces so I'm trying to scale that back. Obviously there will still be tones & shades, but I think scaling back the amount used will help the characters stand out a bit more.

Ok, back on Friday.

Bwah hah hah hah. Artus is just great as the Apathy Faerie, so not caring about stuff... on the outside at least... Though really, AF is going to be really pissed about this... Oh yeah, and queennie too, but less likely to decapitate you... only a bit less likely though.

No mom doesn't have these problems with Lyla, she just needs to be more observant of where the Cutlery is...Artus DOES look unconvinced about Lyla's apparent seductive moves...but it could be, he's beenhere before. Great art--and no I hadn't noticed the art changes, but I'll keep looking.

Wait, so Mika's mom doesn't consider Lyla stabbing her a problem?

The faerie siblings are too damn sexy: everyone wants them!

@ThisGuy - Artus is definitely the kind of guy who takes everything in stride. Being the apathy faerie lets him have a vague disinterest about everything... even a hot naked elf at the door.

@WhiteOwl - Glad you like the art. And while Lyla has hinted at her attraction for Artus, there's been no mention of a previous romantic history between them.

@Invader.Socks - Mika's mom was definitely annoyed by Lyla stabbing her, but that's not nearly as bad as Faerie/Elf dating. After all, the stabbing was an attempt by Lyla to gain some additional power, and Lyla's mom seems to be the type of person who'd have done the same.

@Pixie - It's just a curse they have to bear. Somehow they make do. :)

are we still in the time warp somehow..cause maybe her clothes were the clothes Artus just happened to have in his closet when AF went back home..ughhhhhh my head hurts!

@leyna - hmm... it's definitely possible the clothing AF borrowed at Artus's house were Lyla's... but that can't be confirmed or denied at this time. If there's a previous relationship between Artus & Lyla, we haven't been told outright about it. Yet.

Subtle, like a sledgehammer to the face.

Speaking of which, thought there was something different with the last few pages. Couldn't place it till now.

@RazorD9 - Has Lyla ever given the impression she's subtle? Glad you noticed the changes to the art, even if you couldn't place it. I didn't want to do anything too drastic, so I'm glad you were noticing the change without actually NOTICING the change.

Is it just me, or does the sign in the backround seem to suggest to anyone else that they may actually be in AF's house?

@Vspartan - oh, they are definitely in AF's house.

AF and Lyla are roommates?
bbedlam 25th Jan 2012, 5:19 PM edit delete reply
@RevLina - yep. They are now :)

Lyla... blunt and to the point... got to love her :D

@Hogan - Lyla has a lot of things in common with AF in that regards.
