I'm so glad you guys are enjoying the icons! It's fun to see them all collected together by character, and it lets me double check what poses I've used previously for 'em! I'm going to bookmark this post so that I can see what I've done in the past for all of you, for future icons!

Also Tvorsk, no worries - I'm glad I emailed you to sort things out, but didn't intend to make you feel worried, too. I just wanted to make sure all was well in the land of icons. :) So, if you're good, I'm good too!

"Demon" is a very broad category, and tends to be used in different ways by different people.  That's why West is asking what these are - he's not unfamiliar with this sort of thing, but has never encountered anything like these squid guys, before.  This'll be clarified a little more in the page I'm working on, now.

Gremlins are often called demons by ordinary Ekwara folk, and are really the most commonly encountered "demon" the average person's ever going to encounter.  Demon, for most people, just means "evil spirit".  Gremlins are a particularly clever and nasty sort of spirit-fauna that has the ability to manifest in Ekwara physically, especially when lost things from Earth appear, or when someone uses electricity-based technology, though in this, they're inconsistent enough (they don't show up when guns go off... most of the time, etc) that it's assumed to be intelligent behavior on their part, and not an automatic thing.  For their own reasons, they have it out to cause trouble for people trying to use certain technologies.

As nasty as they are, gremlins are still native to Ekwara's spirit world, while demons and djinn manifest in either that spirit world or the physical world from elsewhere entirely.

Sorry, I didn't get to this question sooner.

This will made clearer in the comic, hopefully, but it partially has to do with the fact that electricity in Ekwara attracts those little dragon-imp thing aka gremlins, who are themselves responsible for bringing stuff over to Ekwara from Earth.

It also has to do with the way that the dragons restrict what items are and aren't legal for the citizens of Ekwara to own.  The dragons are interested in enforcing these restrictions because it's easier for them to manage a low-tech population when the dragons themselves are so few in number, and the birds are interested in enforcing this because they get to keep what they buy/confiscate off folks.  The birds are also working on stuff that has a high potential benefit to the dragons, so the laws have remained pretty restrictive in regards to books, etc.

Here, Formidonis is implying that it would be dangerous for the jaunx and pandril here to let their interest in earth technology lead to them messing around with electricity and presumably getting eaten by gremlins.

Thank you :)

They're not using electricity.  The film is being advanced with a hand crank, and they're using another light source.  Nosferatu doesn't have sound, of course, and I imagine Crystal's needing to take many breaks to switch out who's working the crank and to replenish the light.

Yes, he is!  Among other things...

Heh, yeah.  I wanted to do two things with this part - have Matiph overcome his fear to be able to tell their story to "the bad guys", and to show that the Olsraugh goblins aren't cartoonishly bad nor cartoonishly stupid.  One of my favorite movie scenes is in Titan AE, when the heroes try to pretend to be slavers in robes made out of bedsheets, to get to a prisoner, and the guard doesn't fall for it for one minute.

These two bards might come back later on!  I didn't have plans for it, but I like them.

wait for it... he has a clever plan XD

West does learn how to change his shape, later on.  He's still a little guy here.  He was less than a year old when he found his way to Ekwara from Earth - young for an Earth raven - and is only four years old now - young for an Ekwara bird, who live much longer.  He has a lot of magical potential but not much training.

Um, that's not what's going on.  West is standing over the jaunx and healing her.   But I agree, that would be cool.

He's a raccoon, yeah, but a badger/raccoon would be the CRANKIEST ANIMAL EVER with THUMBS.  Oh god ._.

No, I edited him out of the rest of the story ;)

It's so much fun to finally draw him in the comic :)

Goldfish that go down the drain end up in Grimorg's underground caverns.  She makes some of them into goldfish goblins, but those won't come in until a little later.

She did!  I kept an eye on her adoption info page after I left, and now she's off their available list, which means she has a home now.  Yay!

This character is Quen, who's diamond marking is based on a real kitten I met at a rescue event right before my move.  She was really cool - gray tabby with an orange star.  I've never seen anything like that, before.
