Cyan is the character I always envision when I'm playing a Myst game. He's appeared in my gallery several times before, for instance [link] and [link] Here we catch up with him again just as he's leaving Riven at the end of the game.

Sorry the lines are so light, it was drawn in pale blue ink. I tried to darken it as much as possible. I hope you can read everything!

This seems like such an Arthur Dent thing to do. "Wheeeeeee ... wait, hold the phone!"

I think Cyan can relate to Arthur, to a certain extent. ;p

At least Cyan was properly dressed when he entered Myst! XD

Wow, it’s a small miracle he didn’t go splat into a little puddle of cyan goo (or at least break both his legs). Great job with the expressions throughout, and Cyan’s transition for “Dude, this is awesome!” to “I’M GONNA DIE!” in two seconds flat is utterly hilarious!

The idea was that he just lightly touched down, same way the book did at the beginning of Myst.:)

Watch the opening of Myst again. That book looked like it left a little crater in the ground! 'Course, I could be wrong about that, so your explanation works too. :)

No way, those cracks were there already. If it had hit the ground at full force it would have bounced all over the place and been totally wrecked!

Spot-on. XD Love it! I definitely want to hear the percussive sound the Myst book made when Cyan hits the ground.

I'm wondering if you have haunted the Myst community by another name. Ever been to Mysterium? :D

I remember Riven Guild! I was on the Lyst for a little while as Moiety Jean, which is still my handle. I would be surprised if you remembered me though. :D
