I don’t know about you guys…but I’m enjoying this part of the story.
Dare I say I’m first?
I’m also loving this story right now!
I love this whole comic.
Yeah… What Nini said… *Looks for the +1 button*
I’m eagerly hanging on every word
It is just getting better and better the longer one reads it
I should read it again from page 1 during the June/July Break if I have time.
Merlin is cool.
I don’t know about you all, but suave and handsome are not two words I’ve ever used to describe Merlin. It’s nice to see he could have been like this in his youth.
unreal! i do enjoy dreamland every day, but this sudden change up and insanely awesome new story line has surprised me in the best way possible!
Awsome water reflections! Are they part of the render or are they postworked afterwards?
This is so adorable.
Plus Merlin is hunky! XD Hahahahaha.
Adorably cute wizard boy!!!
I bet he ISN’T Merlin.
Love the smirky look he has in panel 4.
YEah that smirk makes me think he’s trying to flirt. XD
Gah! This is so good I want it to go faster! This is one of those times when a fast forward button for life would be kind of handy.
Love the story arch!!
I have to admit I have a Love/Hate relationship with this comic! Love this comic but hate having to wait each day for the next page
keep up the great work Scott!
But at the same time, I have to acknowledge how dedicated he is to getting the comic done; how faithful he is to the readers (love the interaction); incredible research, imagination……..with all this I truly don’t mind when he does have to take time off (because I know he’ll come rushing back to us too).
Thank you Scott!!!
I don’t know how you guys do it. Reading one page a day. Yikes.
But, I thank you all just the same.
I DO hope you all re-read chapters either in book form or online. They read so much better in bunches.
Well, Scott, if you’d post the pics two per day, we wouldn’t have to wait so long!
No, really, it’s painful to wait, but what choice do we have? It’s the way it is, and we appreciate the work you do. But I admit that every so often I like to go back and see a whole stretch together, just for the feel of it that way.
We still have the easier time I suppose. This comic only takes a day for the new page. Then you have those other comics that update only once, maybe twice a week.
Can you imagine waiting a whole WEEK for the new page on a comic like this? It would drive me insane =P
Personally, I’m amazed you guys put out a page a day. Especially when it’s at Disney-movie quality! That’s pretty much unheard of in webcomics. Except maybe the works of Sarah Ellerton. She was pretty good at putting out lots of high quality stuff. Different style, though.
I’d say she has that deer-caught-in-the-headlights kind of look, but she’s underwater, and headlights weren’t invented yet…
To the risk of repeating myself (too late…), I absolutely love this comic!
I love how she mirrors his smirk when she tells him her name.
it HAS to be merlin. That’s the staff she used to disperse the ravenous fish monsters.
Nivienne is quite cute, with her eyes wide open. And I’m not the kind of guy that use the word “cute” easily.
Are they speaking French?
No. I considered it. But to be honest…with my lack of language skills (English grammar is hard enough on this poor art student)…trying OTHER languages would kill me.
I decree that everyone in the universe of Dreamland speaks American English.
Even people from other parts of the world. Even Elves, Dwarves, and other mythical folk.
Maybe Dreamland talks to individuals in the language that they’re used too! Like if one person speaks German and another speaks Spanish, they will hear everyone speak in their native tongue despite the differences! After all, nothing is impossible in Dreams, right?
Well, at this point in the story, she supposedly made contact w/ a person who’s not dreaming atm… though i guess one could imagine that the ability converse in foreign language is attached to the people of dreamland, not to the location of dreamland….
ROTFLOL!! Just like in the Star Wars Universe…all humans speak Basic. (aka, English) X-D
Like Star Wars? Does that mean that the bad people have a British accent?
A non-mechanical universal translator; like before the Tower of Babel.
A babel fish?
I was thinking the same thing. Anyone have some salted peanuts and a towel?
Heh. I see no problem with suspending my disbelief on that count. I am loving this part of the story. It’s awfully sweet.
Babelfish…it had to be Babelfish….. Works for me!
That bauble on her head? It’s the Dreamland’s answer to Star Fleet’s universal translator.
Or the TARDIS.
It is really good! Though I feel like Merlin’s (I mean… it is Merlin right?) model almost looks too real… when compared with the rest of the cast. None of the models look bad, his just looks a bit different. If you take my meaning.
Allen: What is your name?
Madison: It’s hard to say in English.
Allen: Then just say it in your language.
Madison: All right. My name is…
SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!! *monitors shatters*
Name that Movie: SPLASH!
Heeheehee!!! That movies was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I should find it on dvd or something and watch it again.
Was that movie approved for kids when you were a kid? =3 But yeah, I remember watching it on tv when I was very young and for years afterwards I’d pretend to be a mermaid in the bathtub XD Re-watched it while in university and realized what comedy gold it was <3
oh gods merlin is a hottie.
AWWWWWWW. so very cute
Re your avatar:
It is pitch black. You might be eaten by a grue.
I know its late to note this, but is it just me or is the guy almost a dead ringer for Flinn Ryder?
I’m getting Tangled flashbacks here….
Sorry for the delay in Friday’s page.
I wasn’t happy with a panel and had to re-render it.
It’s still going.
If it takes too long…I’ll post on Monday.
See???? If you did two pages per day, and one was delayed, we’d still have at least one. . . .
Actually, [sigh] we’ll bear up under uncontrollable, and otherwise inconceivable, delays.
What is the current update schedule, I got busy and stopped reading the comments and I lost track of what the current target is? (Not trying to complain, just stop myself from being bummed by going for the next one, and finding it isn’t out. I guess you got me trained to the every week day cadence and I am having issues resetting my expectations.)
I’ve been like clockwork for 5 days a week for the first 3 years.
Maybe missed a dozen updates the 4th year.
This last year, I may have missed about that much again.
I strive for 5 days a week still. Every once in a while (maybe once a month) I may have to miss a day due to computer problems or family issues.
Render delays may turn a midnight update into a 8am update. But that’s more of a delay than a missed date.
I try to be as professional as possible with this. It’s not always perfect. But I’ll let you know what’s going on if/when I have to miss an update.
I overall have been quite happy with the consistency of your updating. Many webcomics advertise for 2 or 3 a week and still aren’t consistent with that. I understand the periodic program error or family issues, but I admire the dedication that you and the crew (if that is the right term) have for this comic.
No complaints on the effort, I just wanted to understand the current goal so I know how often to check.
This is what happens when you don’t feel the hamsters in the computer wheel.
Upgrade to ferrets, will ya?
…but what shall he feed his ferrets with?
Hmm… I can see how Niviene would hear, slightly garbled, what Merlin says, but I doubt very much he’d be able to hear her response…
Unless there’s magic at play… (or if she peeks out of the water.)
I assume that merfolk have different vocal capabilities, such that vocal communication while underwater is possible. I don’t think the transmission of her voice through the water would be a problem, I don’t know about sounds underwater going into the air though.
Ok, just theoretically here … if she can swim to a pool of water on earth from Dreamland … Can Alex travel from Dreamland to earth? And if so, does his astral self take form, and see his own physical body?
Yeah, I’m thinking about this too hard.
cute shes got a crush on the world most powerful magic user in all history
Merlin —–> <3 Cute <3 [I can imagine a lot of young little girls swooning or in the process. I know it's not your main goal, but, it is happening]
Niviene it's goooorgeous. I have to be honest with you, I really think her eyes are the best you've worked on so far on the whole series. The gleam in them is impeccable and the color is perfect in its shading. And the whole "WHOA" expression? Loooving it.
Way to level it up!. Thanks Scott!
I personally don’t like Niviene’s hair o.0 I believe Merlin’s look is the best work Scott’s done so far! ^^
BTW I have a friend called “Vivian Lake” and I call her “Vivian of the Lake” at times. Ah, the Arthur references…
There’s also Veronica Lake…right near the shores of Turhan Bey.
Sorry. Too much Bugs Bunny.
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW this is too sweet!!!
