DA - Royally Riffed 1 by PhoenixFuryBane DA - Royally Riffed 1 by PhoenixFuryBane
I know that this has basically been done before (and better) but here is the scene outside of Redcliffe between Alistair and my Cousland Warden. She decides since he's doing the confession thing, it's a perfect time to get it out of the way too. And to be snarky because I cannot resist playing a snarky character. ;) Page 1 of 2.

This was a terrific bit of practice, since I'm pretty rusty on the comic process and my style has changed a lot since the last time I did any. I still hate dialogue balloons and rocks. A lot.

I love this- joking around with Alistair is the best and cutest thing ever! Though when I did my play through, I picked the "What does that make me then?" option and Alistair said, "The reason I said I was luck." and just turned and walked away all sad and lonely. My brother walked in two seconds later and could figure out why I was on the floor with my hands over my heart. "AWWWWW!!!!"

This is pretty much the opposite of the relationship I have in the game. I'm a male Cousland and end up marrying Anora.

But I thought....Didn't he already know about her being Teyrn Cousland's daghter? It always seemed that way when I played Elissa. *is confused*

:iconphoenixfurybane:
PhoenixFuryBane Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
A lot of times the dialogue options allow you to just use Elissa's first name rather than point out how she's the Teyrn's daughter. I just ran with that for this particular comic. There's certainly opportunity to point it out, though. :)

Unfortunately this is one of the situations where they don't, which is why I put it in this comic. Couslands get two dialogue options when they're at Flemeth's hut and he says everyone's left him and you can't abandon him, though. And they get dialogue options with Bann Teagan. :D

This is fantastic! I LOVE the backgrounds so much. The color palette and everything comes together wonderfully.

You are showing that you are truly ready to take your place as one more Awesome Comic Book Artist On The Internet. :XD:

Great writing as always. VERY cool to see the concept executed. I loved your panel choices, the flow was wonderful and pretty much how I would do it shot-by-shot as a movie too. :)

So much to :heart: here!

Thanks, man! I tried to stay somewhat close to the colors used in the game's environments. I had to repaint one of them on the second page when I realized I'd flipped it. When I get tired I make the stupidest/funniest mistakes. :XD:

Aw, thank you. You better believe this is gonna help make Cerost a more solid work overall. My process will be much more set and it'll be easier to pace from all this practice. Especially since the first chapter has SO much mountainsides and rocks. Take THAT rocks! ;)

That's great! I'm glad you like it. The second page has a bit of :icontracyjb: inspired panel choices because I wanted an excuse to draw more face. Getting the flow is one of the things I've been wanting to work on the most since I felt my eye was weak in that area. :)

In conclusion, yay! :XD:
