The Blackblood Alliance - Page 18 by KayFedewa The Blackblood Alliance - Page 18 by KayFedewa
Definately my favorite page so far - this will actually be a two-page spread when the book is printed! Download for full view.

This is the first page where our backgrounds are done by the very talented :iconnaviira: ! I think she did great and I'm very pleased :)
For more information on the art change, please see my journal:
A Couple BBA Comic AnnouncementsHi all!
 A couple things I wanted to update you about!
Bullet; Green First off I want to mention that I have brought on :iconNaviira:, known as Naviira, to help out with BBA environment work. This will free up :iconfablepaint: to focus on BBA storyboards, their other professional work, as well as their own personal work. (They are working hard on a comic called Umbagog, which can be viewed here: http://www.umbagogcomic.com/ )
You should definitely check out :iconNaviira:'s DA gallery, but here is a sample of what she's doing for BBA:
 
The next comic page (page 18) will be the first page to feature Naviira's environments. I think they work very well, and if you loved :iconFablepaint:'s work (who doesnt?), then you'll love Nav's as well.
Bullet; Yellow  Secondly, as we are transitioning to work with a new team member, we are still figuring out the pipeline and time



I know I paste this in every time but, It's important!: if you're enjoying this comic, I ask you to consider showing your support of the BBA on Patreon. Your Patreon pledges make it possible for me to pay this talented team of artists for their efforts! The better our Patreon does, the more pages of the BBA we can make, and the more I can justify sacrificing my other career to bring to your life these sparkly talking wolves!! :heart: www.patreon.com/blackbloodalli…

This page doesn't really make sense in context to the last one. On the last page I only saw her grab one of the hyenas but all of a sudden she flings them both into the lake, also she threw THEM at the the lake, so how is she skidding into mud at the edge as well? This would only work if the land that they were on was an isthmus, which doesn't look like the case seeing as in panel #1 she seems to be jumping inland.

She was jumping away from the water in the first panel, so how was she sliding toward it in the second? Just asking. Anyway though, Naviira did very well on the backgrounds, and of course, you, Kay, did great on the drawing as always.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed this. Especially since I see certain people commenting here that also comment on another DA comic about the author ignoring the 180-degree rule, yet for some reason they said nothing about it, here, in this comic...? Clearly this is an example of ignoring that rule, as, while Swift should be sliding backward, like she is shown doing so here, we can see in the first panel that the water is clearly in front of her, yet in the 2nd panel, it's somehow behind her? And if that's all it was, I could overlook it, as there could possibly be water on both sides, but, as we can see from the first panel, the hyenas were clearly flung away from Swift, and landed in the water that was in front of her, so... why is the splash then seen behind her, in the 2nd panel? :? Still a beautiful page and an enjoyable comic, regardless, but that part is confusing. ^^;

Yeah... I noticed it too and tried to make some sense of how the scene could work a little better... full disclosure though: I don't have much experience with super complex poses, so the sketches may or may not look weird as hell...

I kinda wish there was an actual explanation for it, from the artist, but meh... oh well. Just one of those things you have to ignore I guess. ^^; Like I said, still an enjoyable comic, regardless.

I just want to say kudos to you for not making Swift instantly grumpy with Cricket???  Like, I feel like it's become a rather common trope for the total badass to be irritable with or put-off by the over eager person they'd just saved, but instead of shutting her down with harsh words Swift's just like "Hey, this place isn't safe and you should probably go back home."  That line was just super refreshing to read.

HNNNG I thought I loved the first panel but holy moly, I love the whole frigging page so much. This is definitely the most exciting one so far and I just adore the way Swift's fur moves in the second panel, disregarding her totally Jedi move (Ataru form, of course,) in the first one. I'm swooning right along with Cricket - glorious!!! :love:
