Hello everyone.

So this week we switch back and look in on the Pixies Lugstem and Beanie as they try to collect the head of the evil Hag; Ginny Greenteeth...

Played around with more brushes, but didnt find a technique that I liked for water, (edit: the riverlands along the Seelie and Unseelie realms are made of blood) but time was fast catching up with me, so I had to get this page finished either way.

We will be getting back to Jolly in his dire moments shortly, fear not.

Im surprised he didnt cut himself on the blade. and I think you did just fine on the water :D

Thanks =) Still, I'll keep playing around untill I find a water effect that looks a little less messy to me

Mr. Fen might have cut himself, but his skin and is pretty rubbery and the underside of his tentacles have a suction quality that worked very well with the flat portion of of the blade, so he didnt.

water is usually a bit less red...

Usually it is, except in Fairie, the riverlands that divide the Seelie and Unseelie realms are made of blood.

I'll have to keep trying for a cleaner effect.

Man I am fascinated by the design of that cute octopus. I really wasn't expecting that! Now that is one pokemon I wish that I had! (kidding about pokemon)
Also, what is that sword!?! Is it the sword of destiny! (joking again) Anyway, it does intrigue me. Will the sword eventually fall into Jolly's hands?
Your world is really growing and developing! It's great!

Last chapter I doodled a bunch of little sea creatures that I could use to populate the Fairie riverlands. Mr. Fen was one of those.

Im not much for Pokemon, some of the creatures are neat looking, but I really haven't paid it much attention.

Even still, where I live its all over the place so I would not be surprised if it seeped into my art as well.

As for the sword, its the same blade that Jolly dropped when he first got on the river with Tinker and Klip.

The current carried it a ways before it settled near by.

It is pretty shinny, which is what got Mr. Fen's attention, and why he swam back to get it for Beanie and Lugstem.

If it makes you feel any better, I forget what happens in my own comic much less everyone else's.
I have to constantly re-read what I have created and then make changes all the time just to try and make the story consistent. having said that, I apologize for forgetting the part where Jolly lost the sword. I will have to do some re-reading of your comic as well.

Naw, its all good. Heck, while its only been a few days for him, the page where Jolly dropped it was posted nearly a year ago.

I might have forgotten about it myself, except that particular sword has a place in the story.

Also, I agree with the above commentators. The water does not have to be perfect. I almost prefer a hand drawn effect compared to something produced by a brush which might end up looking to homogenized.

Im never going to get water right, but I will keep changing things up until I get something I can live with.

This will do for right now, but I find its a little messy for my tastes.

Interesting creature ;)

Mr. Fen is basically just a doodle I had, and figured he would serve nicely in this scene.

Jolly's sword! Then the hag's head is further down river.

That's what the pixies are thinking. It cant be too far...can it?
