Comic for Monday, May 23rd
Dear lords I’ve gotten myself into a mess with this language thing. I warned you it would become a bigger problem later. While I wrote most of the early language problems out, they grow unavoidable occasionally. I will give some thought to it, but I think for now I will continue to only use one font, but use different markers for different languages.
Reshlic is unlikely to show up all that much, but it’s not an uncommon language in Malsa as a third or fourth language. While geographically a sensible guess (Reshin being the largest of the nearby countries), culturally Malsa is fairly separated from it and considering Malsa’s pretty foreigner friendly reputation, any major language would be more likely to be spoken (Orish, for example, though while Orin is the closest of the big three, it’s the least friendly and probably the fourth widest spread language).
I think I should try to set aside some time to draw a map. I won’t guarantee it won’t change bit, especially as I’m terrible at drawing maps, but I think it’d be useful. I will at least try to make a very crude one listing the places that have been mentioned so far at some point if you’ll reckon that might help. And no, I won’t be drawing a map of the IDS world anytime soon… 😉
As for the art, well, I tried some new things. Hopefully most of them are not too noticible, cause I didn’t like how most of them worked out 😛 I tried to show soft things getting wet, man, I struggle to draw things normally. Adding complexity was not a brilliant idea. I really want to spend more time on art; I will try to really hard in this coming week to make a new vote incentive involve rain to try to work out more of the details, as unfortunately I’ve written myself into a decently long patch of rain here (unless plot god’s bring the sun back out if I can’t take it anymore 😛 )
And the black outfitted guy is likely a member of the Bureau, as that’s what we’ve seen them wear previously. And no, he’s not Don… it only occurred to me that after the page went up that he sort of looks like him… 😐
