I struggled with drawing this one somewhat. But it's here!

You are adding so many details to the landscape again though, so with all the tiny surfaces and the added snow the pages look a bit busy. I think it wouldn't hurt to take it more easy on that. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate and love the details you draw, but on some pages the panels almost merge with the larger picture.
Nice to see how you added the "recject" rulers to the Levidian panel.

Edit: Eep, I just saw how long you stayed up! D:

Your storytelling with the V's hunting and pursuing the threesome is clever as well.

A Levidian government policy meeting establishing their goals? This would have been handy 8 rounds ago I think- nice to see all the unused submissions and concepts that deserve integration. And the Varachian battle that's been long waiting in the wings (*cough*) should make for some wicked violence. The mythic quest Cheyanne, equipped with her tools of the trade and the setting really lend things a cool feel that we are entering endgame- what is contained within that capsule I wonder?

WICKED AS USUAL BEN

Seriously man, you always make such cool references/cameos/other things in your work. All the other concepts from the NPC contest making an appearance was a nice touch. Again your art is fantastic.

Thank you EchoDreamer for the guest page! :D!!!
I got a little lazy on the last page in one panel... but I am sick. I am tired. So there!

[edit] Just fixed a spacing issue with some text.

Very nicely drawn, Runic! You got the snow effect down really well.
While I found the whole thing entertaining the ending confused me a tiny bit. There was a lot of fighting, so plenty enough time for Viola to get away with CN. So why does the blue one think she's killing her too by shooting the cabin? And the others tell her to watch them but we don't see her anymore. Is she still in the cabin and if so why?

Wow Runic, this is rather amazing, no wonder it was so much work! Excellently drawn horned ladies punching each other, in large quantities. I do like the creative panel layouts (swinging cable car shaped panels!). Plus the blizzard effects, the familiar looking stun pistol, and random background dragon fights. The "Sherlock" line was inevitable I guess, hahah.

Echo it's great you did a guest page, and a nice one at that! I like how you shaded Viola's hair and horns. Also her yanking CN's scarf.

Five: I'm pretty sure Viola is still in there. Maybe CN is too heavy to carry off... or she is just slow.

I guess so. Maybe it just seemed to me that enough time would have passed because I'm a slow reader.

Still when I think about it I find it a bit puzzling that they flew to the cabin, making Ridley and Cheyan come out. Then they fought and threw them back in. And THEN they try and fire a rocket at the cabin. Couldn't they have just done that in the first place?

So... either they are very badly organized, or this is not about getting rid of CN but instead a plot to kill Viola. o.O

A little bit of both.
Inner conflict!

Why not kill them all at once? The Necromancer, Ridley, the Runic, and the Expendable lesser-born Viola?

I wanted to draw more panels with CN and Viola. That would have made more sense to include them but I did not have enough time... I did finish pretty much at the required time.

Many thanks to the awesome Penryn and Five for helping me out with this one! They saved me from struggling to finish in a busy week and are great.
