2014-01-29 [Yncke]: Not done just yet... :P
2014-02-04 [Dr.Mandarian]: Don't worry, still following *wink* and a jolly parade of new, very cool creatures you have up there!
2014-02-05 [Yncke]: I'm very glad you do. :)
And now part two is completely done. I'll be using the rest of February to clean up - make a cover, fix some things, that kind of stuff.
2014-02-05 [Dr.Mandarian]: Aren't you, eh? ;)
Ah, see, how great! Think I'll read the second part again in whole once more, soon... But I still already find it became excellent! And makin a finishing polish for the overall comicbook sounds like a great activity for the rest of the month! Have much fun with that, dearie, and enjoy the completed work yourself! ( It's been a long way to go ) ~greetings
2014-09-10 [Dr.Mandarian]: Hey, Per'Bat as official comic book? That's so awesome, mate! ^_^ ( Just hoped that this would happen one day... ) Chapeau for all the work over there! Where would I be able to order it, then?
2014-09-10 [Yncke]: :) Thanks! I'll drop a note here when I know where you could order it. It's not out yet.
2014-09-22 [Dr.Mandarian]: Excellent, thank you very much!
2015-02-03 [Dr.Mandarian]: This opening really wakes eagerness, that's so nicely thought up again, with that great 'little' plain and the pittoresque mountain realm, but I even already liked that a lot when you first showed me your map of Eigen back then... Only thing on the first image was at first glance that the single pine tree seemed a bit too blackish, but suddenly now on that second image above the blackish pine trees seem very homogenous to the landscape again... So yeah, that scenery looks very lovely indeed. I'm excited what will take place there now. ^_^
2015-02-05 [Yncke]: Thank you for the remarks. :) Indeed, splitting the whole landscape in two didn't work as well as I had hoped it would.
2015-02-06 [Dr.Mandarian]: No, don't worry, if I imagine that two landscape parts as two-parted "diptychon" the overall will surely work out fine. But: How cool, the ploughman stroke a treasure?! Or an artefact?!! I like how often you put spotlight on such wonderfully ordinary people like that in your stories.
2015-02-11 [Dr.Mandarian]: Rather quite the opposite now, yes... *laugh* ( Poor ploughman )
2015-03-19 [Dr.Mandarian]: Very promising plot so far... like the beginning of a mystery thriller... and I like the characters too - especially the three funny guards and the wise lady... Wish they'd all become main part of the storyline
2015-03-19 [Yncke]: The lady is one of the main characters of the two previous issues, so yeah, she'll come back. ;) (She cut her hair as a sign of mourning at the end of the previous part, and while I could use magic as an excuse to give it the normal length again here, I felt it would be more realistic to make an educated guess how long it'd be over the time of a pregnancy and stick to that. It does compromise recognisabilit
I've also got plans for two of the tree guards. O:-)
2015-04-22 [Dr.Mandarian]: Thankgod there's always magic to explain things in a fantasy world, isn't it?... ^_^ But great that you put thought also in the things that happen 'backstage' and: glad, that Per'Bat continues again! Looking forward for those things to come yet...
2015-04-24 [Yncke]: Nobody probably notices most of the things you're forced to think about, but it's part of the fun of world building. :)
Indeed, I missed an update last week, sorry about that. :s
2015-04-24 [Dr.Mandarian]: No worries for the little delay, dear Yncke. And yes, I agree! And I like too that it contributes density and appeal a lot. The story inbetween the scenes, yes... I especially used that as stylistic device for the theatre play I wrote once, like someone suddenly wears his left arm in a bandage without explaining it at all... immediately tells a story too and makes the reader / viewer wonder...
2015-04-27 [Yncke]: Ah yes, theatre is also one of those lovely places where a detail can suggest so much.
2015-04-27 [Dr.Mandarian]: Right ^_^ * wiggles ears *... But over the last years you also sophisticated details in your comics too a lot... Like the landscapes, the interior of rooms etc Or like the way the pregnant lady above takes a seat... That's so marvellously caught, really!
2015-04-29 [Yncke]: Thanks, you're making me blush. :) I've been surprised at how the one page a week thing helps in terms of improvement...
2015-04-29 [Dr.Mandarian]: Yes, wow, it took me one whole year to find out that you blush all the time *laugh* But you needn't, really... ^_^ And yes, I realized that too... Wish somtimes I could click on Per'Bat to embiggen it and enjoy all the tiny details better...
