wee. I'm pretty happy with this page. Once again I used some pattern brushes from Manga Studio to enhance the first panel, replacing the grass I'd drawn by hand and adding in some cartoony clouds and the crosshatching in panel 1. Other than that and the screen tone in panel 2, everything was done by hand. Mostly the Takichawa G-nib fountain pen, but also the school nib pen for some of the finer details. Brush pen for the larger black areas. Also used a dip G-nib pen with speedball white opaque ink for the white hatching and highlights. Kind of a juxtaposition between new technology (Manga Studio) and old school (dip pens!).

I'm also really happy with that last panel, simple as it looks.

If you ever want to see what AF looks like with just the inks side-by-side with the finished page, you can check out my tumblr account:

I really like the flying scenes of AF. Have we seen AF flying before the last page?

@Thisguy - she has been shown flying here and there in he past (in one of the very first strips actually.. I think it was #4? She was chasing Mika with her axe). Since then it has been shown sporadically.

@White Owl - the stone elemental is boldly going where only some have gone before: on a journey with Angry Faerie.

Glad you're enjoying the art. I'm enjoying making it :)

AF is being good company ... Did she hit her head on reentry to the living world? lol

@Spikes - Is she being good company? She seems a bit rude to me. Be that as it may, possibly she can deal with a rock elemental easier than a person? I wouldn't expect her good nature to last too long regardless :)
