The pen on my wacom tablet is broken, so I'm doing this comic with pencil while I wait for my new pen. Ah, poor guard to the upstairs. Your sole purpose is to be covered with word bubbles. And Dog (Mahariel calls him 'Fido') is Hard To Draw!

Doggie :3
Both your dog and your warden are super cute :)

I remember talking with another player about the differences between the races, like here, the dalish not having the same sleeping arrangements as humans. I think it was :iconaimo: who made a comic about a dwarf being terrified of storms because she's never seen one before.
It's always interesting to see artists explore that kind of things, it adds a layer to the characters.

Aw, thanks! Yeah, Aimo's about as obsessed with dwarves as I am with the Dalish and we both like thinking about those kinds of things. It's a little harder too considering we know a lot more about the human ways than the Dalish, or even Dwarven ways and occasionally I get it wrong (like one of my comics where I thought Faylen could be First- I didn't realize that was only allowed to mages).

But I also like really rounded characters too so I'm glad I managed to create them. :D

To be honest, I didn't know about this "first-mage-only" thing until I read your comic either ^^

I named my dog Taihen. <g> Part of why he's hard may be he's not very evenly proportioned. He's about the ugliest dog I've ever seen but he manages to be endearing anyway.

lol. Yeah, hubby just shook his head when I showed him what I named Dog. Which is part of why i did it. :3 I debated on "Nightrunner", but decided that she'd prefer a more human name for a dog.

He seems to be a good mix of a boxer and a bulldog, so I used a boxer body but muscled it up more. I still can't draw animals as well, though.

Nightrunner would have been nifty. <g> As for the general portions of Dog, I think you picked right with mixing the boxer and the bulldog. The only thing is his shoulders should be higher than his hips and a bit more muscled even than they are already.

It's well drawn and I like the expressions on the characters. Well done

Ah, your Dalish :) The one who was with Alistair :)

Wasn't she the one who made that comment to Nathaniel and the velenaa? :)

Can't wait for the rest :)
