The things in the lanterns are Lumius (lumiuses?), like the one in his hands ^^ They are handy as they shine in the dark. Magicians use them as lights, but unlike snuggs (that creature trampled in the first page) they aren't common animals ! They are really hard to find.
Thanks for my lines ^^ The more your paper is hum, flat and 'glossy' looking (like bristol paper for example) and the easier it is to ink on it. This was made on a leftover schoellerhammer paper I had somewhere !
Thanks again for your comments and faves Bross !
