Are you planning to keep the visual Style that way? Or is it black and white most of the time because of the nighttime situation?

I have chosen limited color, so it'll be black and white with some color. I think, color is critically important and too many people simply through it around with no sense. Plus, if the color of something is important, it's easy to overlook if the WHOLE book is colored.

For example, in Naor, the color of eyes, magic, fire, and sometimes what people wear can all be important. Zaihkt are the only being to wear the blue stones or have blue tattoos. Zaihkt also all have at least one red tattoo they get when under their apprenticeship. That's one way to tell if a character is a zaihkt or not. Tuhk is the only character with blue eyes, unless it is an outsider who can also have them (you'll meet some of those in a few chapters). Magic has different meanings depending on what color it is.

Red for example is usually used for preservation, or stopping time (temporarily).
Purple, like you saw with Tuhk, is the color of souls.
Green which you saw in the Prologue is associated with sight and burns only certain materials.
Other colors include blue, black (which I haven't decided how to do yet XD) and white (also working on that one).
Spirits can sometimes emit a blue hue since magic in its purest form is blue.

So everything I color has a purpose. XD

Gah, that's so awesome. It's incredible how much thought has gone into this... I love the idea of highlighting certain aspects of the image to emphasize their meaning in the comic's story or world. That's just so cool :dummy:

lol There is a reason it took so long to plan! I started it in 2010 and from there is was basic planning and such. In Fall of 2014 (my senior year for my second degree), I started drawing it. :'D It took 3-4 revisions before I found a look and style I liked. XD So I've been working on this project for a long time, at least 6 years now.

Mh, possibly. This project is far more than just a fun thing for me. I'm all in! :la:

And yeah, it is very long term. It'll likely take about 10-12 years to complete.

O.o that definitely is a long time. You sure you'll be able to keep up the motivation as it is right now? I am not sure if I would be... but then again if you say you've been at it since 2010 and still are motivated... That's a great sign.

It's great how you swap from the black-and-white to colours and vice versa. Makes the story more interesting and somehow mysterious. Also a good way to control to whom or where the attention is turned to. Wonderful work so far, I can't wait to see more! :la:

By the way are those "Romkari", "Nanden Yao?" etc. your own words? (Just wondering...^^)

That as my intention with this, to make it mysterious and help my reader know what to pay attention to! XD

The Naor story I have includes a language with grammar and vocab I've spent 5 years working on, studying other languages that are similar to it. I also have a mythology (that the first few are posted).
