The Realm of the Swan by MinnaSundberg The Realm of the Swan by MinnaSundberg
Oooh boy, how long has it been since I logged on to Deviantart? Months, probably, looks like the last thing I posted was the cover for chapter 6. Aaaanyway, chapter 7 has been going on for a while, I've managed to almost graduate, I just moved to Sweden last week and today I got the internet working at my place. So that's what's been going on...

...so here's this illustration for chapter 7!

To read my webcomic "a Redtail's Dream" in full, take a visit to the official site. New pages every day Monday through Saturday! (Nothing on Sundays.)

Ink and markers on A3 paper, colored in Photoshop CS4

I really like the colour scheme you're using for this chapter. It really fits well with the overal atmosphere of what' happening. I have to admit, though, that I find the idea of a swan with a dog head somewhat amusing. But you pulled it off quite nicely~

A dog turned into a swan... would that make him a swog?

Pahusvie pitäisi muistaa seurailla virallista sivua enemmän, niin pysyisi kärryillä. Mutta hyvä jos muistat tännekin päivitellä. c:

Saanko udella onko Ruotsiin muutto pysyväkin elämänvaihe, vai menitkö vain opiskelemaan yms. lyhyemmäksi aikaa sinne?

Ajattelin tämän vuoden ja mahdollisesti toisenkin oleskella, en missään nimessä ikuisiksi ajoiksi. Vähän research-puuhissa seuraavaa sarjista varten ja kun Suomessa on tuo rahankeräyslaki niin en voi sieltä käsin laittaa mitään crowdfunding-juttua pystyyn asrjiksen myyntiä varten. :B

HOLY CRAP YOU HAVE A DEVIANTART PAGE.
I have been following ARTD for since the early days of your moose chapter, which was about three- five months ago.
It's brilliant and you get so much done so quickly, you have a great talent.

I'm starting a comic myself, me as the  author while my bud :iconkatkat-tan: does the drawings...... it's called Alaraverse, because the world is called Alara, and it's its own universe. Do you have any suggestions for us?
The rough draft of the story so far is in my gallery here: azleah44.deviantart.com/galler...

I hope you have the time to answer me, I know you must get many messages from all your fans.

Hahah, yes I do! You wouldn't believe it from how rarely I come here. x3

Aaa, I can't really think of any other suggestions than the really general webcomic-pointers: If you're doing a story-driven comic make sure you always have a buffer of pages, both to give you peace of mind and in case something comes up. Second: don't go on sudden hiatuses all the time. That's... the best I can offer as general suggestions. *shrugs sheepishly* xS

Todella upea kuva ja täytyy sanoa, että myös todella hieno sarjis. :clap:
Huumorisi toimii todella hyvin ja suomalaiseen mytologiaan pohjautuvat teemat ovat aina plussaa. Seuraillut sitä käärme-luvun alusta asti ja uusi sivu pitää lukea aina heti kun se ilmestyy.
