Djehuti: Earth HW Wk1 by Ascynd Djehuti: Earth HW Wk1 by Ascynd
As Djehuti learned more techniques of magic, it became more and more difficult to learn new ones, because it became harder to practice new forms without instinctively falling back on what he'd already learned. The first Earth lesson was a good example. It took a great deal of discipline to sense for Zagor's vibrations through the ground when previous learning made him unconsciously lean toward using enhanced hearing. Even earplugs didn't seem to help. Eventually he got the idea to try and locate Zagor from inside the classroom, while Zagor himself was outside.

I'm trying to develop a "quick and dirty" style so that I can output comic pages faster... I'm still terribly slow. As a result of going fast I have plenty of mistakes... Dj's headfeathers are too tall here, his body shape seems a little off, the windows look like they were cut out of cardboard and more, heh. But it's a marked improvement on last year at least:

Oh and Djehuti doesn't have some sort of weird quill upgrade on his backside, that's just the pinfeathers growing back in after Nymble scorched them off.

6/191 coins (Full body color of Djehuti=2, Bust of Zagor=1, +1 for background, +2 coins award by mod Nestly, see comments)

I really like the idea of Djehuti being distracted by other magic elements he's already learned. That's a really great idea!

This is also just generally a really cute scene. XD

Now remember you only get a gift coin if the character is full body. ;)

But this is really detailed and well done and I love the creativity! So add +2 coins. (Total 6)

Oh wow would you look at that! I can really tell you've sharpened your skills!
Really love the simple details you put into this! I think you're being a little too hard on yourself... 
I don't really see anything wrong with the picture. If simplicity is what you're aiming for, you've nailed it with this one!

Really loved the story too! <3 Haha, ain't Djehuti such an adorable strawberry~ A smart adorable strawberry~
I'm sure he'll get the hang of it soon!
