Next up, Fortune be Damned!!
Thank you very much for your review! It was a huge pleasure to read, something I rarely see in a morning's internet check. Very detailed and long. I only had a feeling you focused on the positives too much, but that's just me.
It might be good to add a comic profile at least, because a lot of people read that before deciding if they want to check out a comic; your profile is actually blank!
I'll sure do that as soon as I come up with a decent description. Is there anything else other than that, though? People keep saying "profile" so there has to be something more to it, but I fail to nitice (maybe it's the banner?)
One of the curiousities of this story is that there's both anthropomorphic characters and humans, but they intermingle in all the scenes. In a lot of stories where there's both species, there always seems to be themes of discrimination from the humans to the anthropomorphic race. Instead of humans vs furries, something else is hinted at.
Every "animal" character is anthropomorpized in a similar fasion based on a respective animal, so humans get their own "de-anthropomorphized" version of themselves (instead of, you know, evolving from monkeys. That "furry vs humans" thing has been done to death, as you said, so in fact, humans here are just as "furry" as anyone else. There is no real reason to it other than that I like it that way, and that I can afford it, because fantasy.
What's curious is that he's obviously in motion, but the rope is slack? If he's running across the wall and pulling himself, or if he's swinging himself, the rope would be taut.
Lol I never really thought about it. I think the initial idea was that he pulled the rope one time and then just flew in a free jump, with rope waving. It was a dream after all so any surreal shit would go.
Next is this speech bubble:
Oh yeah, i've been called out on that before, I watch my speech bubbles now.
And last is just a teeny observation. There's background characters in a lot of the scenes, but only one scene with women shows up - when the fox is talking about how much gold/loot and "hot chicks" (hah!) he's going to make. This area sort of looks like the slums, with a lot of very miserable folks and patched up clothing. So far, the only women to appear have been in someone's fantasy.
Oh yeah, I only noticed that while drawing page 20, where the last crowd was. Back then I thought there would be more crowds and I'd mix in a couple of women there (Originally in this dialogue two guys would just walk past backgrounds discussing things, I also threw some stuff out of it). Anyway, this society, while not really medieval, isn't exactly as progressive as XXI century first world, so at night I guess most women would be at home rather than in a place full of thugs like this.
Don't worry though, there definitely will be women, including actually strong ones. One of the four leads is a woman by the way, she just isn't introduced yet.
A strange creature follows him, but it's difficult to tell what significance of this creature is. It seems to be making weird faces more than anything. But maybe there isn't any significance to this stalker-creature, because it looks like our hero wakes up out of a dream partway through this event!
Oh, don't worry about that, too.
