Oh boy...this is going to be a tough trip back home.

We are still trying to correct the site layout, right now there is some kind of issue with how everything is fitting together. LooeyQ is on the case, and trying some different stuff to get it all looking good, so please bear with me for a bit longer =)

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

What's an adventure without dragons though that's why I always say!

Ive been known to say that very thing...as I roll up a new character, and my former comrades in arms loot my smoldering remains...

Thanks =)

There is still vapor venting from the cave, and probably will be for a while until things settle down more.

I was messing around with how to color bruising and blood without getting that beat to hell "Rocky" look.

Skin tones are complicated, and kinda fun to play with.

That hammer is pretty cool. I would stick around and keep looking for it too.

yeah injurys are pretty hard, I do a lot of research to try and make them look as real as possable , sometimes you have to strike a balance. and i dont recall him getting smacked in the face too often.

Heh, my research was done on a more personal level. I know someone I care for a lot, who is the biggest klutz I have ever met.

Also, I had a skateboard when I was a kid. I loved the thing to death. And death followed me around with that thing through most of Jr. High and High School.

And yeah, Jolly didn't take a lot of hits 'on camera', and having the healing aura going kept him in pretty good shape up until the end, when he lost the hammer.

Getting thrown off of peeps and then the cave collapse, all that was bound to leave a mark.

Poor Jolly, certainly looks like he's seen some better days. At least he's out of the hole!

Oh yeah, he had forgotten what pain was, games give you wounds, but you never have to deal with the pain and blood for more than a few seconds.

Now that he is back in the real world, he gets to keep all the cuts and bruises (and other side effects) he earns.

I really like that last panel, very nicely done.
I can't wait to see what happens next!

I have a couple things lined up with the next bunch of pages, including a new character that is even more annoying than the spirit of Endon was!

Well, I am not completely caught up in the tale and it is fun seeing how the art has progressed up to this point. One thing I really appreciate in this is the staging of each comic. So many 'serious' comics can have pages that do not really stand by themselves and can leave a reader (or at least me) a bit disoriented when posted one at a time. Almost every page of Draginbeard has a point to it and can be read separately, each has a 'payoff'. So far it has been highly enjoyable!

Thanks Joel =)

I want this to be an interesting long form story, but with my updates being one a week, I know it can crawl along.

I can't make every page stand on its own, but when I can manage it, I think it helps with the wait for the next update.

I'm glad you are enjoying it!

I wanted to say I really love how great those drawigs came out and how much better your comic looks than... even a short time ago, but everybody beat me to it! I'll go sulk in a corner instead.

Draginbeard
Awww thanks Dodom! Coming from you, that's a big deal =D

Oh, and no sulking. Only heroes in big capes and rodent inspired costumes get to sulk in the comic industry!

Blue eyes and muscles (swoon) I keep liking him more and more

Jolly does have a little bit of charm to him, especially when he is trying to talk his way out of trouble.

Uh-oh! Better get that patented dragon-away spray! It stinks like crap, but it gets the job done right!

Leerpain fully endorses a product called 'Bite-Off'. It's a paste that comes in large tubs. If you layer it upon yourself, the strange mixture of Mustard and Honey (He claims) will repel dragons as far away as 4 miles.

Leerpain further claims that if you stand in a tub of 'Bite-Off', while warming yourself on the beach, you will never be bothered by dragons again.

Oddly enough, the product testing group that went to verify his claims left for the beach over memorial day, and never came back.

Leerpain (who was the last to see the group during a test flight) over heard the focus group talking as they slopped around in their Mustard-Honey tubs, they loved the product so much, that they planned to run off and reverse -engineer the recipe to sell on the black market.

Leerpain ate the last person to challenge his statement.

The clouds look so real. Like you can actually touch them.

Those clouds are a little sticky, if you get some on you...well, I can't be held responsible for the dry-cleaning bill.
