I listened to a lot of Modest Mouse (specifically 'Good news for people who love bad news') while penciling this scene.

I think it took over my brain.

I messed around with a splash page where we see Jolly drifting under the battle on the cliffs, with lots of debris and stuff splashing all around him. I decided, while it was ok, I think, for the sake of pacing, it was better to just push things along, and get to the whirlpools.

Maybe one day I will go back and finish the page for a poster or something.

As far as the dialog goes, I swear this page just wrote itself. I went to the kitchen for a snack, the came back to find it all done for me.

Yeah, my brain is clearly working for someone else now.

If you're browsing around any of the comic sites he is on, give the dwarf a friendly vote =)

Wait, your right or Tinkers right (which might be the same, given Tinker doesnt know his right from left).,,?

The mouse in the teapot floating along, was fun to draw, I have to admit.

I'll choose whirlpool number three.
Tell them what they've won Jay.
You've won an all expense paid trip to... Hell!

"Choose wisely, or risk being the weakest link."

If this river is of kingly blood, would not the whirlpool be a literal royal flush?

So many questions, so little time

Great update.
I would have liked to see some more scenes of the giants and ents fighting each other though.
Love the little stranded mouse.
Great choice of scenes fro each panel.
By the way, what blood type is the river? maybe someone with that blood type could get a transfusion from it!
Draginbeard 17th Nov 2014, 11:55 PM edit delete reply
No, no blood type per say, and you probably dont want any of it floating in your own blood stream!

The mouse in the teapot is a nod to a great little comic called, the Mouse Guard, and was really fun to draw.

Talk about hazards; whirlpools, horse men, tree dams, it looks like a level of a videogame or something. Good luck Jolly!

Traveling through Fairie is quite exciting, and very dangerous!

Always good POV in your work. Great suspence and funny liners

Sometimes, when I'm scripting a page, Jollys voice is so loud in my head, its distracting.

Thank god Tinker doesn't speak.

I have a feeling they're gonna take the wrong whirlpool. XD

They have a 1 in 3 chance of getting it right. And since its Jolly, those are very long odds indeed!

Jolly looks so cute in panel 3. Well, he always looks cute. Youre getting really good at drawing him! Dont mind me, just being a Jolly fangirl as always.

Jolly is blushing red as roses right now!
