Happy Monday, y'all! :)

Today's update is definitely experimental on my end, seeing whether I can pull off action in this style. I hope you guys find that the result works!

The Lethian Knight with the long plait is Lily, and we've seen her just once on this page. The rest - aside from Seia, Kylie and Rince, of course - are new characters~

I got a REALLY cool gift art from the super cute Dollipop (a.k.a. Daps), the talented fairy behind Capsalot:


<3333 Isn't it just the sweetest Seia sketch?! X3 I love it so much, thank you Dollipop!! ;__;* <333 I am so unworthyyy!

Have a great start to your week, and I'll see you guys again on Wednesday! :D

rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 8:25 AM edit delete reply
Lolol, yes! XD though technically he's under orders to set an example here!

...and then the People for the Ethical Treatment of Monsters showed up to stop Lethians abusing these poor, defenceless creatures. ;-)

Wait, is that what happens in RPGs? XDDD

Depends on the sanity level of the GM, or the players. ;-)

XDDD I'm really surprised to see two comments about this! I'm very sorry, this comic is not kind to monsters on the field :'D it's got a very RPG take on things!

(also I didn't have the panels to show it but XD this thing is very aggressive so don't worry lolol)

lol the little pouty Kylie at the back XD And ooooh, lots of fighting <3 Go Seia!
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 8:31 AM edit delete reply
Lololol yes, little Kylie is very very pouty indeed XD (she probably had that face the whole way there)

I did enjoy drawing this page since it had lots of swinging action in it <333

You definitely pulled off the action scene! I love love love that second panel! Nice work :)

I can't get over how great this style looks, Ruuf. I love it so much!

Kid Kylie was adorable, young Kylie is cute as well. X)
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 11:00 AM edit delete reply
Awww D, thank you!! ;3;* I'm pleased you're happy with this style, sketchy as it is! X3 (Okay, it *might* get sketchier as the pages go on. Maybe. XD;;;)

Kid Kylie is always a peach to draw, this is true... XD;; lol, she's just got such big eyes <3

I wish my classes had fun fieldtrips like this~ ;)

(Awwww sweet fanart! ;~;)
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 11:01 AM edit delete reply
Lolol! I suppose it's like a safari, except you climb out of the jeep and start swinging your sword at the lions or something.... :'DDD

(<333 ain't it just, seamuffin?? ;3;*)

Little Kylie just makes for the most adorable pouty faces. XD
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 11:03 AM edit delete reply
I admit that I personally have a lot of fun drawing little Kylie pouting XD *squishes her cheeks*

Not only is this side story totally awesome so far... But your action scenes are top notch! I can't wait to see some action in this style in the future.

Great work, my friend.
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 11:04 AM edit delete reply
Outlaw, you are always so incredibly kind!! ;3;* Thank you always for being so encouraging! I'm really pleased to know that the action on this page has been received well so far!! :D <333

This style is more work than I anticipated to be honest, despite the sketchiness of it... :'D but I was using it for the side-story to kind of test the waters and see if I can run another webcomic in a similar style to this alongside Serpamia Flare. I'm still undecided XD;;; but thinking about it lots! The positive feedback on this style so far has been very encouraging! ;3;* <3

I didn't notice before, but I can see now who Kylie got her styling advive from.

Including her favoured weapon.

And the action sequence works!
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 11:08 AM edit delete reply
:) Lily and others definitely influenced Kylie growing up, as the guild is a rather tightknit group. Her swordsmanship has been gleaned from various knights, while her Lethiace was honed mostly by Seia!

And yay, thank you!! ;3;* I'm glad to know it works!
Lukkai 12th Jan 2016, 1:19 PM edit delete reply
You are a person of your word, I see, Dollipop! :D

Nice sketch indeed!

<333 isn't it just? ;3;* I love it so... *paps kuudere-kun, Seia* XD <3

...not so great a distance there, mind the tail.
rufiangel 13th Jan 2016, 11:14 AM edit delete reply
It's true he's not a huge distance away XD; but I admit a part of this is my fault. I should have thickened the foreground (i.e. Seia) more to note he was further away :'D the dreglyn is quite a bit bigger than the humans!
