I suspect the nuns would take umbrage with Vane for wearing bifurcated garments that imply she has legs, aside from the whole “hellfire demon” thing.
I really like how this scene expresses foreboding without the usual suspects — such as a thunderstorm or a red moon. Also, the lighting detail is really good. I has both an awe and an envy. 🙂
I don’t think these nuns will be able to exorcise something that isn’t from the devil.
Again, not being of this planet, the devil may have nothing to do with it, but then, there is that scene in book 7 “Broken Sky” on page 12. We see in panel five Professor Crawford is wearing a ring with satanic symbolism. Hmmm. The devil indeed. Poor Vane. That great big hole in her forehead. She is awake again, even after being shot in the head twice. Arin, how dark this novel is with the living hell she goes through.
Vane looks mildly annoyed and exasperated at the prospect of being hanged over a bottomless well.
She looks a bit on the irritated side.
Well you would be too after you just got shot in the face.
It seems Vane does not care for her time in the Exorcise Yard … not even with that dainty little apron they left her or all the metal parts she is allowed to wear to offset the lead in her head.
I don’t see any metal (besides the manacles) or an apron. *headscratch*
So am I crazy or did this page not have text before
Yeah, um. About that.
I dunno if it’s because burnout, or because this page ended up going off the thumbnail rails in terms of how I illustrated it and thereby mentally broke my workflow, or just because NTO has never really had copy outside of characters visibly speaking, but somehow I posted this Sunday without its text, and because I was gone yesterday I managed to not realize it until today.
Huge apologies, my dudes.
I for one appreciate that. it was like a second post in one week.
Some Cat was thinkin’ too hard – metal manacles is what I meant.
Also, speaking of thinkin’ too hard, the cult of the blood God set in a Mexico-like area is hardly without historical precedent, even if one ignores the worst of the lot, the swastika-using (yes, yes, it’s a backwards one, but lots of PRI and La Raza types in the 30s gleefully played up the parallels) Aztecs. Mayas and Olmecs, and Toltecs, oh my. Dine, Chichimex, and Yaqui, how wry! Sorry ’bout that. I’m having therapy and getting injections.
O hope it’s helping Honzinator. However, your comments are most interesting. 😉
Sorry, I ment “I” hope it’s helping.
It’s like a first culture set the pattern for those that came after, from the Incas in the south to the Aztecs in the north. The largst sacrificial site I know of had more than a hundred thousand bodies, all killed by obsidian knives. The number of sacrificial sites from the Valley of Mexico through South American is unknown, but it’s not usual to be digging a foundation or road and find more of them.
Most people today don’t know that the weird ideas of the Spaniards appealed to the peoples of the Americas like a God that loved people and not sacrificing people to this or that god or goddess. For all the modern PC, the Spaniards with all their faults were a massive improvement in how the average person in those cultures lived.
