Page eleven. This one was quite easy to draw. Not much to say about it, either (except that I really enjoyed to draw the dead girl eating up Hermes' dices).

Next we'll see Minos and Rhadamanthys again.

O dear lord! She thinks it`s kind of food, poor girl! I really fell sorry for the her. How old is she really? 13 or 14? Considering when the woman got married and pregnant during that age (between 1000-500 fkr.) I thank dear lord I got birth in this century and not 40 or 2000 years earlier.
Did her child survive?

I think she's 14 years old. Too young to give birth. Her child survived, but she died shortly after the delivery.

Yeah, thank the gods we live in a time and society when we can choose for ourselves IF and WHEN we're going to marry and/or have kids!

I think that one reason why so many Roman women converted to Christianity was that the christians didn't marry away their daughters that early. Among the Romans during that time it wasn't unusual that a girl at 12 or 13 had to marry a man twice her age. Also, her husband had the right to decide if the child should live or die, while it was forbidden among the christians to abort or expose a child (though that value has led to bad things too, like pro-life fundamentalists).

Gah, so many beautiful patterns! And poor Hermes, he'll never see those dice again...

I wonder what Minos has done. And who's saying it. I can't imagine there' a lot of people in the underworld right now who are going to laugh or giggle (except for hermes)...

Thank you! Don't feel sorry for Hermes, those dice were probably stolen anyway. ;)

Heh, it's nothing serious. You'll see.

I wish I had your skill when it comes to backgrounds and landscapes. Oh, what terror I would conjure. =P
But seriously, I really like the tapestry, it's a nice pattern and I kind of want it for myself. Is it just me, or does Hermes look a bit more childish than usual here?

Well, the secret is to find pictures you can draw from. Very few cartoonists are good at drawing backgrounds all by themselves. And when it comes to hatchings, it's more about patience than skill.

Hm, I think you could be right. I was thinking that myself when I drew the last panel. Hermes is supposed to look a bit like a child (and he is a relatively "young" god), but it's not good if he looks too childish.
(When Patrik saw that drawing of naked Hermes he said: "EWW! He looks like a child with pubic hair!")

I realized I could do decent work with good reference pictures, but I want to be one of those people who magically draws awesome surroundings in two seconds. But then again, I find non-living things boring as hell to draw. =P I think hatching require at least some skill. But that's easier to accomplish, I guess.
He's not too childish, he just looked a bit more childish than the previous pages. :)

Well, I think it shows... and I also think that it's one of the reasons that you got the big SeF fanzine award! You're really good, and you're a talented artist and a great author. .. and when you do this.. it seems like you go even further.. It's like you enjoy this comic and that you transfer that joy to the reader in some way...

I read your comics and my highest wish is that you can be happy and enjoyg yourself and are able to do comics that you love; because I think I enjoy reading them so much more.

Thank you for your kind words. These mythological stories have a special place in my heart, so it's really great if the readers can become just as caught up by them as I am. :boogie:
