A text-free version of the first panel is up on my Patreon page for Patrons. :) It's old art from months ago (remember, I'd drawn a good chunk of this comic months ago and am restarting it) but I still like it.

Back then, though, the dialogue was different, which meant different word bubble placement. Trying to make the new dialogue work with art that was specifically designed for a different dialogue was NOT easy. The word bubbles play such a huge role in creating a visual flow.

Your scenery art is really beautiful. I like how well the watercolor-like textures mix with the rough inkbrush style of your word bubbles, too.

Thank you! Once I put normal borders for the panels and bubbles just to see what it'd look like, and it looked totally different, in a bad way. The art is so sketchy, so it looks incomplete next to simple, clean borders.

I think it was worth all the pain I went through trying to figure out the bubble placement :D

Thanks ^^ The peeping kids weren't in the original version, but I figured they'd be too curious to not be here.

I love this page and the page previous so much. :D Everything is very fluid and the storytelling has been really good so far. It's exciting to finally learn the 'what' behind Heart of Keol! :)

Thank you! It's exciting for me to finally show/tell these things, and at the same time, embarrassing that it took so many pages to get here. But better now than later :3
