2012 Pre-Comic Serpy: "I'm gonna make sure backgrounds aren't gonna be a thing in this comic..."

2017 Serpy: *Does THIS page* X"DD

Hizzy seems to be feeling the weight of everything right now :')

This scene is one very dear to me-- I have been excited for it ever since I knew Kilion was gonna be in the comic! (which is waaay before the comic ever even started LOL)
I almost saved it for next chapter, but.. :3. We gonna learn what the heck was up with Kilion earlier in class.....and I think it may come as a shock to lots of you! Maybe..

I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for reading!

The thing I want proven/disproven is if he's the serpent friend who helped Hizzy rescue the girl, or if that really was an inner reflection like I initially thought... You're making me doubt my original theories, Serpy!

Aaahhhh well that will definitely be proved or disproved this scene if that helps! :D

I actually am pretty dang impressed with the white water. That's gotta be hard to do!

I don't know what Killions story is yet, but I definitely feel a fellowship bond about to be made.

(of course, I have a keen grasp of the obvious)

Thank you so much! The water was definitely a bit of a challenge! I spent a looot of time on these backgrounds!

I think you might be on to something there ;D

Holy backgrounds, Batman! This is gorgeous! If it didn't mean potential death by Kal, I would immediately take a vacation to that top panel. The stream looks especially nice.

I think Kilion needs to trade with Hizruk. He DEFINITELY needs the Gwynn mama-bear treatment, and uh Hizruk can fish? Ideally Gwynn would just add him to her growing family/daycare along with Tia, and poke the Council in the eye even more.

I've had to launder/bathe in a stream before and it suuuucks. You get stream gunk on the stuff you're trying to clean (and you), and it's never not icy. Also, I almost lost my shirt one time, because I forgot to hold onto it and it went flying off. So that meant stomping around soaking wet to grab it. Anyway, I feel bad for Kilion; he's had to do this way more than I did!

And now to wild speculation about Kilion.
Does he actually have a second eye? It's been covered in all of his appearances thus far. Maybe it's not missing, just weird somehow. Like Keymen's? (I REALLY want to know what's up with that)

I'm convinced he has something to do with Keymen. Did he get picked up on a trip somewhere, and lives in the serpent nation now? (unlikely). Does he have something to do with the Merek and Keymen conspiracy thing? I've been thinking that it existed before the fallout, and something happened to it that also affected Kilion. Maybe his parents/guardians were involved somehow? I don't really know.

Oh and last thing! What's inside the bag? Keymen's the only other character with one, which is probably coincidence, but maybe Kilion's a magnus delox supplier or something?

LOL thank you so much!! That is such a great compliment! People always say backgrounds should be treated like another character...aaand I haven't really been doing that. X"D
For this particular scene tho the background is especially important so it's time to step up!

Bahaha you know Gwynn so well <33
Oohhh yes..... having to bath in this stream would be especially unpleasant.. and yes.. Kilion has to do it that way all the time X"D. As we will come to find out why... he is not comfortable doing it anywhere else--certainly not the public hot springs!

Buuut I've said too much :3
I LOVE all the Kilion theories!!! Really soon here we will know the truth! (an' I sure hope it won't be anticlimactic LOL)

BEAUTIFUL backgrounds Serpy-kins!! <33

Good to see Hizruk-baby getting a moment to himself and finally reflecting on his actions and how much trouble he's caused :'D (though he's still barely scratched the surface of THAT iceberg - wait 'till he finds out how much Merek cares omg)

I have a feeling we're about to find out something about Kilion that will definitely get Hizruk-baby's attention... hopefully this means they'll be BEST FRIENDS AMIRITE SERPS ;v;***

Yeea Hizzy NEEDS to take a moment and get some perspective x"D. He's gonna get slapped in the face with it one of these days!

These. Frickin'. Background. Oh my good lord SERPY LOOK AT THESE BACKGROUNDS!

The white water. The rocks. The leaves on the ground. The colors - I've told you before, it's stunning, and I meant it. This entire page is just.... it's a work of art.

See? It's so beautiful I can't even describe it. You have me at a loss for words.

The characters only enhance the background. Without them, it doesn't matter. If we couldn't see Hizruk experiencing the vastness and the beauty of the landscape, we wouldn't experience it ourselves, or at least, not to the extent that we do. That water? Gosh, it's beautiful, but it also looks COLD, poor Kilion must be freezing. Without them, the scenery has no meaning.

Okay, I'm done preaching to the choir now.

In other news, 'splip' might be my favorite onomatopoeia ever. :D I can hear it as I read it, and it makes me grin. What else could you ask for in a word like that?

The three final panels are my favorites. The last one is set up beautifully by the two preceeding it, and those have the best faces on the entire page. Kilion, just.... he needs a hug. He needs a heck of a lot more than just a hug, but a hug would do very well for starters. Oh, that's a sad, painful face. And Hizruk's quizzical look is just precious.

What have you done indeed, Hizruk.

Other than advanced the plot, I mean. That's pretty important. Aw, Hizruk, don't feel so bad! Plenty of characters make dumb decisions in the name of plot!

In all seriousness, it's nice to see him reflect on that a little bit. Poor boy hasn't been given the chance to make mistakes and reflect on them before, at least not for the past decade. He's got some mistake-making to catch up on. At least his mistakes are made with the best of intentions; it could be a lot worse. I do love how good his fundamental character is, despite his decade-long imprisonment and torture period by the idiots in charge.

But Keymen's expounded on this before, so I'll shut up now. XD

It as been, as it ever is, a pleasure. :]

Aah thank you so much! I had worked super hard on these to make them decent looking xDD-- and I'm so glad it paid off!

Also glad the characters enhance them too <333 afterall we don't have a story without them!
Haha yes.. Hizzy hasn't had time yet to do much reflecting--even still THAT didn't last long! Yes he does have a strong fundamental character for sure XDD-- i guess he never does what he doesn't really WANT to do, whiich could get him in trouble and be worse I guess if he does something bad X"D.

Thank you so much, you always make my day with these wonderful insights! <3

Hhhmm...It will be interesting to learn what secrets Kilion is hiding and why he's so jumpy around the Umbra.

Ah! The backgrounds are looking very fine indeed! Not to torment you with the horrors of old art but the improvement in your forest scenes is just too impressive to avoid mentioning... (like THIS page compared to this page: ).
