When I sketched this page a couple years ago, Dennis’ face in the third panel made him look scared of Nathaniel, and submitting to peer pressure. But when actually drawing the page, I accidentally made him look more angry. So I went with that instead, and I think it adds something to Dennis. Rather than just being “the coward” or whatever, now he has reasons for doing the things he does- for being scared of certain things, and being mad at others. He may want to run from feathery beasts- but he’s not gonna take any crap from this jerk in a bar.
Also, I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before (because I think of it every time I draw a page- I’m like ten past this) but the Sundr’s tunics relate to what their jobs are. Togas are in politics, white tunics are manual labor, red is the city guard, green is the militia, purple are royal guard… etc.
Sorry the page is going up so late today, it’s my birthday! But the actual reason is because I was finishing up two more pages. It is my birthday though. 24!
