It's Alistair! His hair is a bit difficult to draw; I haven't quite figured out a nice way to do his hair. I also finally got visual references for the background so they're pretty authentic. ^__^ As for Eamon; I'm pretty sure it really is because of Isolde, but I doubt he'd tell Alistair that.

I usually try to listen to music to get into the mood while I'm doing these pages, and I played every sad song I have in my collection. Surprisingly, that's not a lot. ^^;; Do you guys have any recommendations? What music makes you cry?

mmm proobe "my husband makes movies" from nine... Also Halleluyah, it's not exactly sad, but still. Claire de lune of beethoven is also cool. Unforgiven of metallica... mmm xD. Reflection from mulan( look in disney records, perhaps there is something else). All by myself. if you want to try something spanish put "Lia" in youtube. From the game crisis core "the price of freedom" is one of the most moving musics i've ever listen. Music from the opera "il pagliacci" specially the aria. Melodies of life from final fantasy IX. "Requiem for a dream". The piano from the nba announcements xD. Check alejandro sanz music too. Fear of the dark is moving, but not sad... There are a lot in queen, red hot chele peppers etc, but i think that you must know it... if not, give a private message. I like how you draw alistair's hair, btw

Thank you! I think Arl Eamon's voice is nice and fatherly. I felt a little bad disappointing him... but not much. ^__^

heh.... alistair said that eamon and him were never too close..

bukittyanProfessional Digital Artist
Yeah. I think they were about as close as they could be, given the circumstances.

Outstanding. I'd always wished that for those playthroughs where Alistair is a close Friend you'd get a Flash-Back sequence to when he was sent away, or at the least some finer details or closure about that. I mean, after Alistair talks about it and later when you give him the Locket, the whole thing just kind of gets swept under the Rug, and no one, not Alistair nor Arl Eamon talk about it. Maybe it was one of those Story moments cut from the game; I don't know. Still, I love how well the tension of this conversation is captured, especially in the final frame.

Thank you! ^__^ There's just so much back story to Dragon Age that I do wish the game was longer to incorporate all of it. But that's why there's fancomics and fanfiction!

Nicely done. I've been following your comic ever since you started posting it, but I really like the idea of incorporating this flashback in it.
