While shading the characters does make them look better like in the previous pages, leaving them un-shaded doesn't nessecarily make them look worse. I'd be fine with both options here *nod*
Nightwill 14th Feb 2014, 2:46 AM edit delete reply
Honest opinion in short: Its fine
In detail: Without the shading it looks more like a Saturday morning cartoon vs something with more effort and detail put into it. I know that might be the idea and I dont think its a bad thing. I love your comic.
Mattwa 14th Feb 2014, 3:44 AM edit delete reply
I have to agree with this comment, the shading of the characters indeed makes this comic appear more "refined", and I certainly can appreciate the time and effort put into it. I immediately noticed something was different about this page before I even read your comments below it. I would prefer the characters be shaded. :)
Kale 14th Feb 2014, 2:50 AM edit delete reply
To be honest I prefered your norm before this...but I Have to admit this gives the comic a smoother feeling to it. Though I dunno. I'll wait for the shaded version before I try comparing the two in my mind.

I think the scalp hair looks a bit flat in this version. Otherwise its OK.
Greyhair 14th Feb 2014, 3:14 AM edit delete reply
Greetings.
Awww'd at Callow in panel 5. As for shading, for me it looks better with characters shaded.
Keep up the good work!

Seems so far everybody likes the previous version better. I was going to do a poll because it seemed like when these pages popped up I got so many responses about how they like this better.

Thanks for the feedback, and please feel free to keep it coming, I would like to hear what you guys have to say as far as it goes. (I personally like to shade it all, but an outside and unbiased opinion is always good.)
Ortlinde 14th Feb 2014, 4:01 AM edit delete reply
Hi there :) I am a big fan of this comic so I felt I would comment! I like it better personally when it is shaded, but I for one, know how tedious it is to shade. So, if you prefer to stop the shading, it wouldn't be a huge deal. Just keep up the good work :D
Amocin 14th Feb 2014, 9:34 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
It's fairly easy to shade, so thats not really a problem here, or the reason I ask.
Ortlinde 14th Feb 2014, 12:51 PM edit delete reply
Then shading all the way :D

*sighs* really Amocin? your giving him an ice throne chair? this Narina crap! we don't need to know that Mordin is evil. this is the same guy who murdered his own child, faked his death and pin the blame on Kinar. and Drogan already told us about Mordin. hell your info in your cast section tells us he is freaking evil! and I do not like where this is going for Amo.
Amocin 14th Feb 2014, 9:33 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
This has nothing to do with Narnia, perhaps as another commenter said, he is already looking to get into the Frozen Throne. Google it.

As for the other things you said, perhaps the conclusions you have come to are wrong. You may need to go back and read those bits.
Ben Raptor 15th Feb 2014, 8:34 AM edit delete reply
and why would he want that?

I did and he said that he's gonna make her useful. so either he is planning on making her a member of the Death Knight group or he is gonna give her to the men.
Rankamateur 16th Feb 2014, 8:42 AM edit delete reply
In answer to your latest question:

"What do all men with power want? More power." - The Oracle, from `The Matrix: Reloaded'

Mordin is a powerful Death Knight Worgen with delusions of ruling a world filled with fellow Worgen, and all the rest dead...or presumably, undead that he controls. There is no better way of achieving the latter goal than to acquire the Frozen Throne and Helm of Domination, which were the Lichking's tools for dominating his army of undead...an army that numbers in the tens of thousands, and wanders aimlessly about Northrend even now, without a leader or purpose.

At least, that's what most of the world's population has been lead to believe...
Ben Raptor 16th Feb 2014, 12:44 PM edit delete reply
how the bleeding mud did Kinar fall in love and had a child with this guy? Mordin ranks up there to Sauron's level.
Rankamateur 16th Feb 2014, 6:10 PM edit delete reply
One must assume that they were married before Mordin was slain and changed into a Death Knight...a process that I'm sure would mentally unhinge just about anyone. Mordin isn't likely his original name either, or Kinar would have said something about him being her former husband by now...and she seems to be currently unaware of his identity.
Darthias 16th Feb 2014, 2:55 PM edit delete reply
The alternative is also that he could be planning on using her as bait in order to capture Drogan?
Ben Raptor 17th Feb 2014, 8:21 AM edit delete reply
why?
Josh.C 17th Feb 2014, 11:58 AM edit delete reply
I don't think using her in that way would be very effective even in Mordin's eyes.

While he may have had original idea's of using the women for recreational purposes for his men when he saw them at a distance. He most likely would have changed his objective of killing Drogan and taking the women after seeing his wife.

Mordin recognizes his wife. Drogan noticed he recognized his wife. Mordin knows Drogan saw and acknowledge that Mordin recognized his wife.

Amo could be many things in Mordin's eyes. A potentially lethal recruit. A bartering chip. A source of amusement for his men. But probably the top thing of anything is information and Kinar would probably be one of the biggest questions he would have on his list.
Ben Raptor 20th Feb 2014, 4:57 PM edit delete reply
I doubt and I hope she isn't gonna join Mordin. or else that will give Zack another reason for hating her and hoping she dies for good already.

Hmm Well I like shaded better myself, un-shaded looks almost like you didn't finish. It is good in it's own right. But for those who have been reading from the start...I like shaded better :)
Diablosouleater 14th Feb 2014, 6:45 AM edit delete reply
I like them shaded a little better because it looks more detaled other then flat colors. Both look nice but with the un-shading looks a little cartoonish.
withpuppys 14th Feb 2014, 7:03 AM edit delete reply
oh god please don't tell me mordin is planning what i think he is planning with amo
Rankamateur 14th Feb 2014, 7:35 AM edit delete reply
My, my...with a throne of ice, it would almost seems that Mordin fancies himself in a position akin to the Lichking himself. This in itself brings up an interesting plot point; I wonder what Bolvar Fordragon (the current Lichking) feels about such an upstart, who would dare raise up a force of world-threatening Death Knights under his very nose?

Of course, only Tirion Fordring and a handful of heroes are supposed to be privy to the fact that there even IS a Lichking still `alive'...so perhaps he is refraining from attacking Mordin's forces to prevent his secret from being discovered. Ah, so many twists and turns to consider...>:-)
Fisch 14th Feb 2014, 8:06 AM edit delete reply
Looks like every evil mastermind who sets up in Icecrown gets himself a throne of ice. :D

P.S.: I also like the shaded version much better. The characters look more alive that way.
And shading the Background but leaving the characters un-shaded doesn't make any sense to me.
Nightskystar 14th Feb 2014, 8:24 AM edit delete reply
I like this version too! It give's a little more old school
feeling of comic :)
Happy Valentine's day Amo! <3
Blueray 14th Feb 2014, 8:51 AM edit delete reply
Shaded please
Saldura 14th Feb 2014, 9:09 AM edit delete reply
I don't really mind either way to be honest. If it saves you some time to leave the characters unshaded so be it, though there's probably times where shading wil look better depending on the scene and location so you'll probably have to shade them sometimes anyways. :)

Also Three cheers for Callow, the most adorable evil minion of 2014! :3
Amocin 14th Feb 2014, 9:31 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
It only saves me maybe an hour or two depending on the page. It's really an insignificant amount of time that it saves me.

However it did seem that I got comments stating that people preferred it this way, so I just wanted to ask what everybody else thought. I am always about improving the comic, even if that means I have to change things.
Senji 14th Feb 2014, 9:14 AM edit delete reply
I have a really bad feeling about this.. :(
Dargon 14th Feb 2014, 9:50 AM edit delete reply

Personaly I prefure the shading,as it lends more highlights to the details.
Also it gives the characters more of a 3D feel,as oposed to the 2D comic strip feel.:-)
Ace 14th Feb 2014, 10:15 AM edit delete reply
the comic is awesome but i kinda like the shaded pages more.
ps. shes about to be put on "service" duty
Viverred 14th Feb 2014, 11:33 AM edit delete reply
To shade, or not to Shade? personally, as a devoted fan of numerous Independent comics. Story and character development are what keeps me coming back here. the art work being great is a bonus. I have enjoyed both the shaded and un-shaded pages, as well as the ongoing improvements in style. all around this is quality that keeps getting better. keep up the good work and rest assured, at least in my book, this is as good as any 'mainstream' comic.
Qintus 14th Feb 2014, 11:49 AM edit delete reply
I definitely prefer it without shading. Great picture by the way and happy valentines day!
Guest 14th Feb 2014, 12:12 PM edit delete reply
I'm getting the feeling Mordin is either going to force Amo to be his sex slave... or offer her up for trade in exchange for Kinar. Though I wouldn't mind some Amo x Mordin action.
Firebrand0 14th Feb 2014, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
I think both shaded and unshaded chars look fine. Shading on them does give them a more 3D feel, but it isn't really needed either as the background does the same.
Josh.C 14th Feb 2014, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
You do pretty nice drawing if it be shaded or not.

The shading does give a nicer look to the details. But it doesn't really hurt it with the picture being unshaded either.

It's like getting an awesome cup of hot coco from some place. Alone, the coco is nice. The shading is the whip cream that they add.
Valentine 14th Feb 2014, 3:06 PM edit delete reply
I love it! This is my first time commenting. Gotta say, without the shade it just gives it an awesome - toony look! Marvelous! It's good either way but please, at least do this again sometime. It's quite unique.
Lilay!!! 14th Feb 2014, 4:58 PM edit delete reply
I actually would rather shading, though this is pretty good.

I can honestly read it better this way.
Sarion 14th Feb 2014, 6:16 PM edit delete reply
Hmm this looks more old school and cartoony, but i cant tell if that is bad :) .
But its a bit different from the style and the look of the characters we come to know.
Ahnin 14th Feb 2014, 6:24 PM edit delete reply
Love the arts as always though I think I prefer shaded over the current unshaded image. The difference is slight though, so if kept like this I would hardy complain. I will note the way the different colors of the fur patterns blend where present has a positive look on the characters. Seems slightly more natural if you will.
Dreamfox 14th Feb 2014, 7:14 PM edit delete reply
Is it me, or does Amo look defeated in the fourth panel? For me she looks much fiercer and defiant in the second panel.

As for the question, I have a slight preference for the shaded version, but honestly? It's the story that makes me read your comic.
3D 14th Feb 2014, 8:46 PM edit delete reply
I don't notice any difference, but my brain did.
It seems easier to read, but I cannot tell why.

Im not sure how it being unshaded helps you read, as the word bubbles dont actually change.

Like I said, it helps me read in a way I do not understand. Maybe the colors just flow better and it puts my brain at ease.

I want Mordin and Amo action please~

Also, will there be any more Anders action? Besides the incident with Kinar, I'm wondering if he'll take a liking to anyone or any other mount while at the camp.
Amocin 14th Feb 2014, 11:00 PM edit delete reply
Amocin
For an Amo/Mordin scene that would have to be rape, and I already stated, I will not draw that kind of scene.

I will not say anything about Anders though.
Elosan 15th Feb 2014, 8:51 PM edit delete reply
I am rather glad that will be no rape scenes in this comic. Keep up the great work!
Guest 14th Feb 2014, 10:40 PM edit delete reply
Will there ever be solo scenes? There seem to be so many characters, that I'm widening if there will ever be one regarding just self pleasure.

Also, why did Amo have a sad face? And does Mordin still love his wife by any chance?

Another question, did Kinar's father cause her to become a worgen?
Amocin 14th Feb 2014, 11:01 PM edit delete reply
Amocin
All the questions you asked, except for one, would be a spoiler.. You have to wait and see the answers to those when they come.

Kinar's father did in fact infect her, but he was also a feral Worgen at the time as well, like Most Gilneans were. Though that wont keep him from blaming himself for it.
He who carries no name 14th Feb 2014, 10:42 PM edit delete reply
All I can say is Mordin took the time to teach his officers Sun Tzu maybe his officers should have taught a bit to their troops.
Rembrant 15th Feb 2014, 1:47 PM edit delete reply
So wait, worgens start out as wild and feral? How do they regain their normal, rational minds, then?
Amocin 15th Feb 2014, 3:21 PM edit delete reply
Amocin
Yes.

So here is how it goes. Imagine the Worgen as typcial werewolves in every shape and form. The human is bitten by a werewolf, and is cursed. They become feral violent beasts. In game, they were given a potion, as shown in an earlier page here, that helps them regain their minds and become the person they once were, but they are still cursed with being worgen. All that potion does is give them back control over the 'beast'.
Rembrant 15th Feb 2014, 3:55 PM edit delete reply
Okay, got it. Thanks very much for the explanation. But a final question, though. Only humans can become worgens, or can other races become infected and transform into worgen?
Amocin 15th Feb 2014, 4:01 PM edit delete reply
Amocin
Night Elves were the first Worgen. So as far as Blizzard has shown, Elves and Humans can be infected. It's unknown if other races can be as well. However I would suspect that any race that has ties to Druids can become infected. Because it originated from a Druid who wanted to unlock the wolf form.

This information can be found in the comic "Curse of the Worgen." Where they tell the history of the very first Worgen. (At least thats what I remember, anybody is free to correct me if I am wrong.)

Oh, gosh, he has an ice throne and he actually thinks he looks cool in it? Look at him in the final panel, all full of swag, he is such a villain. I must say, too, in the third panel he looks like he's doing the Jedi Mind Trick, now that's pretty cool.

And gosh, why is Callow always so wide-eyed and adorable? No wonder he steals every page he's in, he's like a walking, life-size undead plushie.

I also like the brightness of the white and the contrast in color to it from all the characters. And the facial expressions are top notch on the whole page.
Tytrooper 15th Feb 2014, 1:53 AM edit delete reply
The look that Amo gave to Callow seemed, to me, to give more away about their history. Either Callow knew Amo in life, before he was married, or she is surprised to see him alive? Either or, I am a really huge fan if the comic and glad for this to be my first post. :). Keep it up!

Guesticus 16th Feb 2014, 6:31 AM edit delete reply
Unfortunately, seeing that as well (or at least, hope _not_ to see it)

Maybe the writer will set it up, but it gets prevented before it actually happens
Rankamateur 16th Feb 2014, 9:05 AM edit delete reply
No...you don't. If you take the time to read Amocin's replies to other posts similar to your own, you'll see that she has made it clear that there will be no rape scenes in this comic; a fact for which I am grateful. Please understand Wolfy, that I am in NO way accusing you of doing anything more than pointing out a possible...perhaps even likely...outcome from Mordin's ruminations about Amo's usefulness.

That said, I have to wonder how anyone could EVER derive pleasure from a scene of such repulsiveness; it would be a mentally diseased individual that would want such a thing. I reiterate again that I am NOT accusing anyone here of possessing such a reprehensible mindset...but it would behoove the readers here to avoid ever making an outright request for it.
Josh.C 17th Feb 2014, 3:04 PM edit delete reply
Besides what you've said, it's very likely that his priorities have shifted for the two women of the group since noticing his wife.

Odd thing is, we can't be to sure what clued him into that. Seeing he's been MIA since her transformation, it could be possible that he wouldn't recognize her by her looks. But then if that were true, then how did he recognize her? Her actions? Her Power? Anders? Did he really recognize her by looks alone?

Valentine 17th Feb 2014, 3:08 PM edit delete reply
I actually have a feeling he's going to make her do something very silly, instead of anything dangerous to her health. Can anyone see Amo cleaning their castle? Being forced to be the lunch lady? Oh man! I bet something hilarious is coming up! At least, I hope so.

For some reason, I can imagine a very cute whine coming from Callow when its brought up that he screwed the pooch.
