Whether or not it seems like it... this conversation between Gwynn and Hizruk unlocks some major stuff for the plot later on! Stay tuned ;D

Entering into our second to last scene of this chapter... welcome to the Civil Umbra Community Living Facility XDD

---------
Gosh it's nice to be updating again. Sorry about last week, guys.... but I am back in Cali and back in health! So updating should resume as normal from here on out. I missed ya!

Thank you for your patience!

That last panel... It's just wonderful! Man, such good drawing in it... I am envious of your ability to draw dem backgrounds. Do I spy Barron and Ryder? Ryder doesn't look very happy... and Barron has a photo of someone? XD A SPECIAL someone? *Eyebrow wiggle.* lol

Ah ha ha! Hizruk...I think you might be just a little tiny bit dense XD
At least the terrifying lecture has been put off for another day! :D

Really nice perspective in that last panel (and so much detail! that one must have been a killer XD). Interesting that the Civil Umbra live communally; I wouldn't have predicted that. No wonder they tend to be so loyal to each other. Also gives them more in common with a military organization than a police organization.

Just a liiiittle bit XDD... okay a lot dense XDD

Thank you so much! If not for that panel I MIGHT have been able to finish last week... but alas X"D. Yusss the Umbra Sect is kinda like both police AND military..but this particular brigade is a lot more bro-like. The ones that have families to go home to definitely do that instead! but most of them live here yus XDD

Welcome back, Serpy!

Seeing Hizruk and Gywnn talking about Keymen, it's nice that she's telling him to trust the guy and stuff. I was honestly thinking she'd want him not to talk to him and stuff.

And most of the Umbras seem to be having a good time there.

Haha yeea..... there's a lot of pain there but she seems to want Keymen n Hiz to have a good relationship :3

Hahaha it's probably hard tor recognize him cuz it's a different angle and his scar is kinda hard to see.. but the blondie in the foreground playing catch is someone you know! XDD

I know I've said it before, but I love Gwynn. Arguably, this is the first time Hizruk's agreed easily to something that's asked of him, and I don't think that's just the family connection. She actually ASKED him, and explained why. Merek (love him too, but he's bad at this) and certainly the council could take a leaf out of her book!

Also, I never realized this, but Gwynn is TALL! She looks like she's about Hizruk's height, and not much smaller than Keymen.

The Civil Umbras basically live in boarding school. That's actually adorable! I did get the fed-up-teacher vibe from Merek before, and thought it was funny, but this absolutely confirms it. I guess lacors count as a school bus, haha? I think I can see Barron, Ryder, Mylon for sure, Syrus could be any one of the brunettes, and maaaybe that guy that leaked the information off by himself there. Can't see Kyle, but bet he's the guy almost standing on Mylon. Seems like something he'd do. ;)

27th May 2017, 3:30 PM

HeSerpenty

Haha yes I'd definitely say she is the best communicator out of everyone (but still falls short of that in some areas too haha). Also I think Hizruk has the MOST trust and respect for HER so far...so it's easier to do what she says XD. Maybe there's a small part of him that wanted to know more about Keymen anyway? :3

And yes! She's definitely not a petite lady she is tall and strong. Hahaha kinda a change up from many of my other gals!

LOL I'm so impressed you named out most of the Umbras! Yep I have Mylon, Syrus, Barron, Ryder, Creepy Crevid, Sad Sal, and some other ones I haven't named quite yet but I've been thinking about em! Kyle WOULD definitely do that hahahaha.... but he is downstairs--we'll see him next page :3
I've always loved the idea of these guys all being super close and having lots of comradery with one another--so naturally they should all live together LOL!

I'm really happy Gwynn feels comfortable enough to tell Hizruk about Keymen. And as alliances build, things can only get better, right?

And Umbra dorms, huh? Things can't POSSIBLY be crazy there XD

Also the hair. How do you make hair look so nice??

That last panel is amazingly drawn and also looks like a nightmare for any introverted Umbras around *shivers*

I know I rambled on about this earlier, but it bears repeating: that was practically a confession from Gwynn that Keymen's his dad.

In other news, I can absolutely see why/how this conversation unlocks major plot stuff later. No, I don't know precisely what, exactly (aside from, well, the Kynn relationship), but my plot senses are tingling. It's certainly going to put Hizruk and Keymen on that mentor/student path that's inevitable for their characters but also pretty much needed that little boost from momma bear to get Hizruk to actually, y'know, try. Hizruk's a good kid. An oblivious, stubborn kid, sure, but a good one nonetheless.

Communal living for the umbra! I concur with whoever said they're feeling more like a military unit than a police force. Even signing up for stints of however many years (I forget. I want to say three?) is VERY reminiscent of how enlisting works in reality. Kind of cool, actually. Though I'm reminded of martial law now and... yeah, already hated the Council more than enough, it's actually reached a point where I'm more apathetic towards new information that might make me hate them more otherwise.

Besides, it seems to work for the Serpents. Sort of. 0.o

And do my eyes deceive me or is that all the umbra that live in the area, civil and frontier alike?

I would like to throw in my guess that the second to last scene of the chapter is going to involve Merek telling the guys about his promotion.

Art wise... I dunno, it's early, I'm exhausted, the page is pretty as always. My favorite panel bar absolutely none is the last one. I can see why it gave you such trouble, but it was absolutely worth it. Your backgrounds are GOALS.

Then again, your entire art style/skills are goals, so...

But really, I do love it. Group scenes are tricky as all heck, and this one was spectacularly well done. I would applaud you, but I'm at work and that would be frowned upon.

Haha it does kinda sound like a confession doesn't it? Well HIZ sure didn't think much into it! But you are right this is going to unlock the next step.....where things and people can really start developing! And yea... it would definitely have to take Momma-Bear to get this Baby-Bear on track

Haha yea! Civil Umbras do a lot more "police type" work but they are a military type system as well. But this particular brigade is seperate---they don't bunk with the Frontiers aand they are a lot closer than other Umbra Districts around then nation. Guys who live here don't HAVE to live here they just want it-kinda a way to make sure the Umbras have a place to live that's close!

Thank you very much! <33

Gotta say, people really do things like this (or maybe worse) in such groups.

I think the one that was the worst was the idiots who filled a few two liter bottles with water, then capped them tightly and began a game of throwing them at one another in the middle of the night. Not only could somebody have been seriously hurt by those, but it was loud. *They were very close to getting a mass beat down.*
