The Fall by SiverCat The Fall by SiverCat
Jade was never happy with Peony's decision to name one of his beloved rappigs after him. After Peony told him about his dream the previous night, Jade's dislike of Peony's name choices only grew...

I wanted to really test armatures and continue getting used to the way they worked. But, rather than just playing with them in Blender, I figured I should create something and this came to be. Poor Jade was my guinea pig once again, though at least in this case, it didn't actually happen.

Poses are so much easier to do and look so much better with armatures. I'm glad I finally got around to learning them :D

For those who don't know Tales of the Abyss, Peony has pet Rappigs, one of which he named after Jade, and usually calls the rappig his cute little Jade. The rappig Jade isn't too bright...

hmm... practice=comic...? XD

Poor Jade, always the guinea pig? This was funny though! The figures do look better with armatures, don't they? I love these little figures! Especially the rappig-he's so adorable!

It equaled comic in this case :D

The figures themselves are the same, but they look so much better in complicated poses! I'm happy I at least got Jade rigged up. Peony is partially done, but there's something I need to figure out before I finish with him...

Hee, I'm glad you love them :D They're so fun and I'm addicted to making and using them...(and torturing Jade apparently) though it never actually happened.

Aww, poor Jade xD I hope that poor little rappig didn't actually get hurt! ;p

Yes, comics is the PERFECT way to practice :D Keep on making them! xD

Well it was just a dream, so both Jades are fine lol.

I'm afraid my next few projects aren't comics.

I said so in my comments. Peony named his rappigs after his friends.

I can only do comics when I have ideas. But I'm sure there'll be more in the future.

ALL of his friends? :o

Don't worry, at least I'm guaranteed to see some awesome future comics, since your ideas are always hilarious xD

The rappigs are: Jade, Saphir (named after Dist who's original name was Saphir and he, Jade and Dist used to be friends), Nephry (after Jade's sister and who Peony loves), Gelda (after Professor Nebilim who I think I've mentioned before), Luke (hero in Tales of the Abyss, and Aslan (who is a general of the Malkuth army and is well liked).

Always hilarious? Awww thanks.

During this comic, one of Jade's arms got left behind by accident when I was moving him. I didn't realise that it wasn't selected as well lol.

In addition to being good practice, that is a rather amusing comic to boot. Well done, mademoiselle!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it :iconfurryglompplz: It was fun to do...I think I may have cackled a few times throughout, though heh heh. I am not kind to Jade, but it's for him that I keep coming up with ideas.

I plan to do his visit with Emperor Corentin next, so that will give him a pleasant break :)

I am beginning to become quite fond of your little people (I spell it out both because I do that everywhere, though this time I have also forgotten where the apostrophe goes), I daresay, though I fear that a meeting with Corentin might not be quite so easy as Jade imagines it to be....

:D I'm glad to hear that because I have several projects in mind that involve them. As for the spelling, it is lil'
A small part of the reasoning behind their name is to avoid any sort of confusion with Little People - toys made by Fisher Price. And, I like saying lil' people. :D It seems to fit them.

The meeting has to be better than being confused with rappig and sent tumbling down a staircase. I'm sure Jade would find coming to another world to be quite interesting.

Indeed he would, though I daresay that it will be odd-feeling for him to get magic rather than fonons the first time he tries to cast a spell. The astonishment of Thunder Blade being 'Lightning' elemental and Prism Sword being 'Celeste' elemental should not last long, however (at least I hope that it shall not).

I'm sure he wouldn't take too long to get used to it. I'm sure it would feel very strange though. I wonder how different magic and fonons are.

Well, Olivine magic breaks down as follows --

Water / Fire
Earth / Lightning
Celeste / Abyss
Non-Elemental

Healing spells don't appear to be of any specific element (there isn't any equivalent to the seventh fonon), and will generally appear to be of the predominant element of whoever casts them (support spells work the same way). If you use Magic, you'll probably specialise in one of the six elements (Lilia specialises in the Celeste element, Emile in Earth, Mimi in Abyss &c.), though it isn't uncommon for one to have a large number of Fire or Water spells for no apparent reason, as they are numerous and easy to cast.

So would Jade's skill at using all of the types of fonons translate to using to all the elements (except for support magic)?
