Missed updating last week because … well suffice to say, I now know what heat fatigue symptoms are. And of course, as soon as i turn the ac on, the temperature plummets so I have to turn the heating on. wtf weather?
Also noting that if I ever want to do something as texturally complicated and reoccuring as the fireplace, I should do a something like a modelling unwrap texture to save myself hella lotta grief. It WAS supposed to be in a few more panels, but f that.

… or rather, [scoping out] the local situation.

Man this comic was an annoying learning experience. I spent way too much time fiddling with textures, and it still doesn’t look right. And of course by the time I finished with the wood, I just didn’t care anymore and halfarsed the rest of the bgs. Definitely just gonna paint in the major details next time and just do a light texture overlay.

For funsies, though it has no bearing to story:
While I was looking up reference for fireplaces in cabins, I was amused to see that a suggested “related search” was adding on “brick” to “fireplace log cabin”. Now, I know it’s probably the difference between stone versus brick fireplaces, but part of me is still giggling at the idea of a wooden fireplace.

You didn’t think I’d keep throwing names of places at you without context, did’ya? … You did? … >->

For funsies, though it has no bearing to story:
Elves being immune to sleep spells has always been a mild annoyance of mine. My personal belief for this mysterious racial trait is that Legolas had insomnia while tracking the orcs across Rohan, which led to the mistaken belief that elves don’t need sleep. (j/k, totally)

Didn’t quite manage an update last week for… reasons. I’m almost back on track now; it just means I have to put off the next Gijinka another week.

For funsies, though it has no bearing to story:
You can barely tell that the mysterious person is holding a gun, I’m pretty sure the elf shouldn’t have seen a gun before, and guns aren’t really everywhere yet, but I still wanted to make a stupid “don’t shoot” joke. XD

Another reason I made the switch from a gag comic to a more story/character driven comic was because I wanted the underlying theme of seeing new places and new things that you’ve only just read about before. In this current era, due to the internet, I think that the thirst for discovery and adventure has been overridden by Google Search. Not that I’m knocking the usefulness of Google, it helps me quite a lot, but it shouldn’t replace the desire to see and do things first hand.

For funsies, though it has no bearing to story flow:
The Elvish (Sindarin) is transliterated as:

Lim sui rych brand, i duin daer rimma
I arya beleg o nin pain, i cuil-rant o firen erdh
A! i gened o Belegsir celefn,
I arya mirwa o men pain
tyr naeth pain gwanno

… though the grammar is probably atrocious haha.
