Happy new years eve everyone. Tried reverting back to my old style of hand tracing to see if I can reduce time enough to go back to weekly updates. Bi-weekly just doesn't do well, but this way is much lesser quality. Let me know which you'd all prefer.

So is mini kleeyo going to be shaved then? lol

Dammit, where's a maddened tauren engineer of the goblin school when you need one?

Heh! You called? One [The Bigger One] on your command! Talia might need to rez afterward, but that's probably better than being slow-roasted to death.

Clef, what approximate WoW level would Talia be here?

(I had an alt named "AlexGBelle" for the Gnomish school).

Still leveling, so certainly not capped.

Equating an actual WoW level to Tallia would be extremely tricky. For one, we recently saw where the Tauren council refused to give her what would presumably be considered a "starter" quest line because she refused to accept the hardcore "go kill Alliance" attitude. However, she has [Levitate] which is a Level 34 skill that she demonstrated quite expediently several pages back. She also, as a very young thing, demonstrated the ability to summon [Shadowfiend]s which is a level 42 Shadow Priest talent, except that talent summons only (1) and she is shown here summoning (2):; which is more akin to the Level 60 Shaman talent [Feral Spirit].

Further blurring the issue, her purported skill at healing being greatly at odds with her level of actual experience. At that young age she was proudly telling her mom of being able to achieve "7k effective HPS", which Imma gonna go out on a limb and say that at Wrath health levels was probably fairly spiffy:

All in all, while she may not be at "level cap", Tallia undoubtedly possesses a huge amount of raw power, and an array of learned skills that would make even a more experienced adversary take serious account of.

I'm for the weekly updates, as even your "lesser quality" as you say, still looks really good. I enjoy the story and characters enough that getting more of that is definately worth the trade off, but do whatever you like.

Seconding this - I love the weekly updates, and your "lesser quality" compares very well.

Aside from wondering who else is there, the mom in me is cringing at trying to get the butter out of her robe. Man, grease stains are the worst! ;)

Happy New Year Clef.
As far as I am concerned, you may go either weekly or bi-weekly. Whatever drawing style you choose, you will be making great stories and interesting characters with it, I believe. It was what bought me in the first place after all.

The quality looks pretty good to me :-)

To be honest, i prefer Quality over Quantity, not that it would ever be an issue with your comics^^.

this way still looks good, and with a weekly update possibility I would vote for this. It looks good and you can update more frequently.

So to me your over all quality would go up with the more frequent updates.

There is a chance that the voice at the end could be the Murloc she rode for so long, now able to speak their tongue after having been around them for so long.

I really don't think her breasts need salt.

Serious note: I feel that update frequency, as well as the type of art style you prefer to use, are your choices. When you say "Bi-weekly just doesn't do well" are you referring to pageviews, or story advancement? If you feel that bi-weekly is not serving the story well enough, and you need to take it back to weekly then I support that. But if you are not going to be happy with the quality of the art you have to use to achieve that schedule, then I am not going to force a decision on you by demanding a faster schedule. I love this story. When I started reading, I made a commitment to enjoy the story at the speed with which you would provide it, and I stand by that commitment. I want to enjoy this story for a good long time, and I want you to enjoy the telling of it just as much or more.

Speak for yourself! Murlocs like salt on everything! (They are salt water creatures, after all).

As for which reason? Both.
