**Warning! Spoilers for the Dalish Elf storyline!**

First: Page 1
Previous: Page 7
Next: WIP

Next page! I wanted to experiment more with getting a more frenzied look to Tamlen in panel 5, so I played around a bit with some color and shading. I think I still need to let go of my "it has to be pretty!" aesthetic and really get edgy to do it right, but I think I'm getting there. I also might change the blues a bit.

I also had a bit of trouble getting Tamlen's expressions. It's difficult to make expressions on a face made for only one purpose: creating terror.

This will be the last page for at least a month, so I wanted to make sure I got it out. :)

Alas, poor Tamlen. I wish... but let's not think about that now. :(

Anyway, whenever you get around to the next few pages, let me know. I look forward to the moving but inevitably tragic conclusion. ;P

I'm going to try and finish this up, but work has to take precedence and I've been really busy with work lately.

poor Tamlen but it's worse for Faylen - what she'll have to do :(

I think it looks great, and I agree sometimes its best just to go for it and draw :) ovethinking can be bad for a drawing - something I'm terrible for lol

I know. That next page is going to be a doozy. Well, the next five pages actually.

I've been overthinking stuff a lot lately, which I should stop doing. Just go with the flow. :) Thanks!

I really love the red and blue contrast in the fifth panel. It really pops. And Tamlen's grief in panel four is pretty heartbreaking. :(

Thank you. I'm just glad that fourth panel works; I was having trouble with shriek expressions. :)

No Tamlen! NOT AGAIN! This is why I hate the Dailish origin. But it's still the one I play the most. I'm in love with Tragity as my friend put it. It fuels me to write. And this renewed my determination to finish a two part thing I was doing and to post it. AWAY I GO!

Wow!.... Now that expression on his face is just horrible!

Kinda like how Lyna would have felt is the way she feels as well :C

Thank you. I'm glad I'm able to capture not just Faylen's but all Dalish reactions. :)

I'm playing another Dalish now and I've been waiting for this scene to pop up again. Tragic.

I haven't commented this comic before but I do have followed it. Shrieks are not the easiest to draw but you have become better in it all the time as well as with letting go off that "it has to be pretty" mentality. :)

What I like most in this one is the headshot of Shriek-Tamlen in 4th panel.

Sigh! Heartbreaking!

In our Dalish playthrough we didn't have the heart to kill him at first :tears:
