I think the first panel of the next page looks pretty amazing. I think the "soulless marble" interpretation I saw of one commenter may have to do with the way the eyes are set in the dark skin around them though; that does look a bit off, but also looks like it could have been a stylization choice. That and they could be mistaking the glowing pupils for catchlights, possibly.
Regardless, excellent work with these recent pages. I'm interested to see if and how the personality of Iki and the newly emerged personality of Skoll will mix.
So we finally know what Hati wanted Raigho to come and bring Iki alonge to meet him in person. I really wonder what it is about the stone circles there. And of course if Hatis plan of recharging Skolls powers with the runes there will work. I still wonder what Raigho, Jera and the others will do when Iki tells them about it all. I wonder if they will believe him or if they will think that he just dreamt everything. And I wonder who Hati wants to buy the world some more time with Skoll chasing the sun.....I totally love the way you did the drawings here once again.The same goes on the effects. The light falling from Ikis muzzle and the glowing markings. Really interesting stuff is going to happen soon. It's awesome. You have opend a vessel of awesomeness with an seemingly endless potential of brilliant new ideas, questions to think about and potential for a lot of plot-twists, character interaction, character development and just everything a great and thrilling comic need to succeed^^
I don't usually look at animal artworks or comics, but I know awesome when I see it! I'm amazed by your ability to capture expressions and convey their personalities so well through body language! Also, the colouring is magnificient Great job!!
