Aaand I think I'll have to return to my three-a-week schedule next week instead of this week, my sincerest apologies! >_<; Too much crazy this week. But I'll try to make up for it!

In the meantime, please have an awesome weekend - see you all on Monday! >_<)/

And neither of them are looking!

Indeed! What timing... :P

Yep! :D I kinda miss drawing them all the time, but because they're in a region where Danrir and Kijini conflicts have been escalating, they have to play it safe. So I'm happy to draw a glimpse, at least!

Do not worry about the updates :)
If it is too much for you just tell us and take a day off...
I was just worried about your unexplained absence.

*lol* both hide their ears under some kind of hat - I do not think they both are of the same species, are they...? and should they not be able to smell each other?

The water is dampening their senses as explained by Nemi when she first falls down the well

Yeah, I remember that but even though it hampers the smell they are so close they should smell something - especially though since they are wet (like a wet dog is more smelly...)

Hehe, as Kaiki83 mentioned, Michael is of the Danrir race, and Nemi is of the Kijin race. As for how different these races are, I'll let the webcomic play out the differences over time. :)

Nemi and Michael had their senses remarkably dampened (literally) due to the water (which has an extra purifying agent in it due to the Lapia Oak), but I'll let the comic play out the details~ hehe. ;)

Oh, and I don't know if Michael dried out enough on that rock to smell like wet-Danrir. XD;;; To be fair, they don't have that much fur, yanno. ;)

Kijini and Danrir!

...and falling for each other...

I do wonder if they realize what each other are, or if maybe next page they will find out.

Well, if they do notice I imagine they'll take it in stride. They don't seem like the kind of people to get hung up on these things.

And... isn't Jinn technically dead?

Yep, Jinn is technically dead. But that's all I'm saying on the subject! ;)

Looking back at when you originally introduced Michael you draw the ears differently now. Before you could see the inside of the ear where as now the whole ear is furry.

This isn't the only change by far of course since I know those are old and tbh it dose look better this way (if less realistic). However, could you say why you decided to change it? Just wondering.
rufiangel 18th Aug 2014, 6:56 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha oh maaaan XD;

Okay... the short answer is: I just felt like drawing it differently!

The long answer is: when I first drew Nemi, I intended to draw the inside of her ear as well. However, in the course of roughing and inking the strips with her initial appearance, I found that I kind of liked how it looked without it. Kind of like it's her hair, except we know it's not! So I guess I figured that if you dig around those ears, you'll find the inside eventually. XD; Just nothing I have to draw!
As a result, by the time I got to drawing Michael back into the story, I realised his ears needed to be drawn the same way for consistency's sake.
Aaand that's why. XD; Hope that explains it!

(Man, I really need to go back and redraw chapter one. XD;;;;;)

Lol, yes it dose.

And as I said I like it better the new way anyhow. ;)

Oh, crap, I didn't notice that Michael and Mikey were the same person!

XDDD;;; Entirely my fault - he does look a bit different!!
