Please note: I don't answer questions regarding the plot/story, nor do I clarify anything seen in the pages (; the comic is for you to analyze and I refuse to spoil anything.
So, don't take it personally if I don't answer your question.


(( I've decided to synchronize the dA/website page posting so that everyone gets the same update at the same time. (: The website will no longer be one page ahead and this will last to the comic's conclusion. ))

Here's lookin' at you, Reed.

I'd like to mention I love the contrast - yin and yang, good versus evil (although one can argue Reed is not evil but his actions were immoral).  I also like how the color associated with evil/corruption is on the "good" guy, while the one associated with good/purity is on the "bad" guy.  Really helps blend the moral lines.

I wish there as a concept page for this version, but that might ruin it for new readers. T.T boo. I love the black coloration! :) It makes him ten times more special.  Do they get to choose how their last form looks like or...?

:iconbaliwick:
Baliwick Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
They do! The last form is entirely up to the individual; the first three forms have to be based in reality (i.e., Rollo's robin form, Elian's fox form, etc.) but since the final form is usually something that sticks to the white plane, they can choose anything they want-- even something fantastical, like a dragon or a kirin. Anything goes, any coloration goes-- it's basically a free-for-all choice, haha.

Good morning!
Um.. I was wondering if I can get your permission to translate this comic into Chinese?
A lot of my Chinese friend LOVE the style of this comic but their english is not that good...
So, if you're ok with it, please reply me, thank you XDDDDDD

I think that would be fine! Though I'd ask if you could just send the pages straight back to me, and then I could put them up onto the website. (:

:iconseekeroffire:
SeekerOfFire Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Of course! Thank you very muchXDDD
Oh another thing, is it ok that I post the translated pages on a Chinese bbs website for my friends? I will link back to your DA page so that they know you're the painter.

:iconbaliwick:
Baliwick Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
That would be fine! (:
Though I would prefer it if they weren't resubmitted to dA. xD I give permission for you to post them on the bbs website, and I'll also add the Chinese version to the official SotP site for others to read if they want!
Reply
:iconseekeroffire:
SeekerOfFire Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I'll do that!
I will translate your comic and resubmit it to DA and link back to you, also I will post it on the bbs website and also link back to you. I will tell my friends not to resubmit it to DA and any other website.
Sounds good?

:iconbaliwick:
Baliwick Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I would actually prefer it didn't get resubmitted to dA at all. xD That's the thing. It's okay to put it on the bbs website for your friends, but other than that it's already on dA in English and if anyone wants to read it in another language it'd be better to just go to the main website.
Sorry! I just don't want multiple copies on dA.

Awesome. (: You can either note me the links to the bbs pages via note, or I can have you email me a zip or something. I think either of those should work!

I've just read the entire comic again, and I can honestly say it's probably the one I've enjoyed the most reading again. And this page especially is a true wonder to look at.
Do you intend to sell prints of the comic when you're done?
Reply
:iconbaliwick:
Baliwick Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
It was my original intention, but I was a beginner when I started and failed to really format the pages in a way that would print with much quality. So, unfortunately, this will be remain as only a free-to-read webcomic.

I wouldn't even under maybe take the form of the father that used me for his ''higher'' purpose, what I would do is take a form that would counter his own and tear him to shreds....

Cant wait for more!

I was half-expecting him to take a form of Reed's mother, tbh, or at least very similar to it.  That would have really stuck it to him....

Slaskia Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I get the feeling Elian chose that form to mock Reed.  He also seems to be a very dark grey color instead of mainly white like other Lock 4th forms (that we know of, considering we've only seen three adult Locks (Reed, Thandred and Reeds mother).  Could be due to lighting or he could be still 'solidifying'...guess we'll see next page or two.  Still, I wonder what Reed's reaction will be....
