Heylu, happy Wednesday!

Aaand we have another late update today, sorry about the lapses I'm having in my normally regular updates these days. Honestly, let this be a stern lesson on time management, priorities and general planning-ahead stuff. :'D I shall endeavour to take this lesson to heart.

By the way, I got another really cute fanart from LittleImoutoSis - of a character I never thought I'd get fanart for, but goshdarn is it cute XD

Ehehehe, ain't it just the cutest thing XD thank you so much, LittleImoutoSis~! X3 <3

Again, for all your ailurophiles out there,
I'd like to link you to this campaign my sister is running to save a cat she rescued. In my sister's words:

image

My sister is offering to do a Nemi mini-game if the kitty's surgery funds can be raised in time! So if you'd like to help save a poor kitty and get some more Nemi out of it at the same time, please consider donating. Thankyew! :D

Thank you so much for your patience with the updates lately. I hope you're having a great middle-of-the-week so far! Catch you guys on Friday!

Lots of things to discuss, lots of things preferred NOT to be discussed. Thus is life...hanging with Madou. XP

XD To be fair, thus is life hanging with pretty much anyone! Though I guess with Madou, the number of things you can discuss without trollage drops down massively :'D...

Well, at the very least his answers would give you something to think about. A starting point. That's gotta be worth something.

I think that's probably what Kylie's thinking, too. :)

A very heavy and well written page, my friend. I really dig the way the characters are interacting with one another during this extremely stressful moment in their quest.

Excellent work! Keep it up!

aww poor Cain is trying so hard to be all protective <3. Madou is right tho... is integrity IS adorable!!

Rufi I always admire your paneling and pacing!!! Its expertly done <33
Also.. I really like how you color blood X'D (is that weird? lolol)

I was about to say the same thing about about the blood actually. It looks nice and bloody and not just like an ink splatter.

Teach us, pls. X)
rufiangel 31st Jul 2015, 2:32 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Aww! XD I'm flattered and also kinda worried that this is about the way I do blood but anyway XDD thank you!

Uh, I basically take a default hard brush in PS, dip in a dark red and then splotch it all on manually. :'D

... I know, this is very disillusioning isn't it :'D i'msowee

rufiangel
Ahahaha Serpy-kins XD "Adorable Integrity", that's what I should've titled this page :'D

Thank you for such encouraging feedback Serpy ;w;* <3 *hug* I really appreciate knowing it's not too boring so far with all the yakkity-yak!

And blood huh... XD there's quite a lot of it in this comic so I'm always trying to figure it out as I go! Thanks for letting me know you think it looks good so far, though <333

Ahaha, to be fair, [url=http://serpamiaflare.com/comics/301/]it's not the first time Cain has had the exact same reaction to someone before[/i]. XD;;

Whoa I was like 5 pages behind. Though it probably really helped all these pages mesh well! Kylie is getting back to her old self quite fast!
rufiangel 31st Jul 2015, 2:34 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Oh yay XD I'm pretty cool with people catching up a bunch of pages at once, as I'm fairly sure the comic reads better that way (especially now that I'm in a talking-heads-sequence :'D)

Kylie certainly seems tough as nails, doesn't she? ;P

Cain for crying out loud just take the dang papers, most of it is probably drawn over by Madou's crayon drawings or something.

Poor Kylie, she got more out of that really dark flashback than the readers did and it's haunting her really bad :<
rufiangel 31st Jul 2015, 3:32 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I can just imagine - right on top of all the really important parts, Madou's super huge crayon handwriting: "TOP SECRET LOLOLOL :D"

Kylie's a sad Kylie when it comes to those flashbacks, yep ;^;... we'll see how she copes!

Cain...it's not a bribe, it's a peace offering. accept it so you can better assist your party instead of constantly being dragged down by the curse.

Hopefully, Cain will agree with what you're saying if he wants a clue, at least! XD;
