To read the comic "a Redtail's Dream" , take a visit to the official site


Behold, I've returned! With massive internet withdrawal issues! I had like half a dozen different nigtmares about returning home and finding out that not checking in on the interwebs had somehow ruined my whole life. Twice I dreamt that I was kicked out of school for not paying some super-urgent fee on time. Errgh, not the kind of things you wan to dream about when on a vacation. x<

Anyway, enough about that, and on to more relevant stuff: the comic will resume with an update speed of six pages per week from now on. Yup, that's right, basically daily ubdates. My page buffert is about hundred pages, so an update speed like that is very much manageable for me for the time being. : B

And this picture... took a lot of time to finish. Probably around 50 hours or so. I'm quite happy with the result, especially Ville's fur and the subtle little lineart effect that kind of connects the image to the comic even if it's pretty painterly-looking overall. ^_^

In conclusion: it's good to be back, and I hope you guys will enjoy this chapter. It's my favourite one so far, and it is well over a hundred pages long so it's going to last for about five or six months.

I love the way you do textures and fur. It's absolutely brilliant. You should make an updated tutorial about your technique. ^_^
