Stuff. Happening.

Big thanks to Rats for the help with the rune and KaroliinaHankonen for the help with the entire bottom panel. I was really struggling with the effect of the broken spell and she swung her pen a few times and this is the end result. Hahah!

This'll be the only page this week I'm afraid! I'm going to take a little Easter break and next update will be on the 30th of March! After that we're back to the normal Wednesday & Sunday updates.

There's a little sneak peek to next Wednesday's page on the website: tistow.uk/comic/page55.php

oh! i like how you play with some panel in sepia and then others. Also the last one with the broken glass transition could do a fine banner

...Is that a magic symbol on the rock in the top panel, or just some random scribbles?

That broken spell almost looks like he's travelling to that shamanist underworld. ._.;

You're the first one to make a note of the rocks! They're littered pretty much everywhere on the countryside, you might've spotted them in some of the older pages too.

He's definitely getting dragged into something that's for sure.

This is the page where we learn that no one told Jack not to make eye contact with people, much less rats.

But that is quite the cliffhanger! :XD: Dang it. I hope you have a wonderful Easter though!

You're kind of right about that actually. But you'll have to wait for a couple of weeks before you'll find out why. Mueheheh. I look forward to sharing them with you! ^o^

Nice awesome shift in colors there. I have an inclining as to what might be going on so I'm excited to see if I'm right or not.

Hm...>.> I'm probably way off base, but my thoughts like to run wild with me. I interrupt this as, since you stated that the spell has been broken, and by has been stated in the earlier pages, Jack might be experiencing a sort of disconnection with the rat spirit, or at least some spirit in general, maybe because he did overstep the boundary of staying in the form too long? or maybe some exterior force has "infected" his attachment towards the rat spirit or which ever spirit the symbol represents (thinking it's the rat since there's rats or mice on this page. Kinda like that anyways

You've scraped the surface with one of the guesses! I won't tell you which one or how exactly though. Hohoh. You'll find out soon. :heart: The rune represents himself. It's essentially a ward that only he can use. But that too will be mentioned in the next couple of weeks.

FUCK SHINIES I ONLY GET EVENT/SCRIPTED ONES!!

I might have seen a shiny dratini once or twice in the safari zone, but seriously? FR/LG safari zone? unfair bet how that went...

and with an eevee, what do you even evolve it into?
Reply
:iconellipuukangas:
ElliPuukangas Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
The thing is, I'd just keep it as an Eevee, not level it and just. Stare at it. I'd be too afraid and confused to use it on anything.

Dunno about this new evolution though.

Ooh, lovely last panel! So bright. And it's interesting how the color seems to just drip out of the symbol...even the blue does.

Excellent page, as always! Have a lovely holiday! :bunnyla:

I knew it! The minute I caught that small preview when I checked the site, I knew something was about to go wrong. Oh dear... and now we get the wait to find out just how wrong things are going to go. 

Things going wrong or not though, this still came out amazing. The details overall in the countryside scene, and with the little rodents on the side of the road are great. Rats did an awesome job in helping to capture the broken effect for the rune, and that bottom panel is fantastic, both in expression (yet again), and the shift in coloration that puts emphasis on the spell going wrong. Love it! Glad I didn't log out yet, as I was just about to only to end up spotting this update. ^_^
