Blue - Page 87 by HunterBeingHunted Blue - Page 87 by HunterBeingHunted
Well, would you look at that, a page! Finally!! There has been exams and just :faint: also I am simply ultra slow at coloring these days.

Lets count time how long it takes for Shadow to notice that Blue has taken her bracelets off.. and well every jewelry item actually!

Please fix my grammar again if needed :) Also let me know if you have suggestions for saying the same things in an alternative manner so the speech 'sounds' better.

Probably not the best time/environment for that, + as they said it is not sure if they can have a family. :)

Ah, isn't it ironic to see pups running about right after the question of starting a family is raised... And wow, Shadow looks so mature there, both in appearance and behaviour. He had always been sensible and wise, but I especially liked seeing him stand his ground in regards to what really matters to him. :hug:

Bunch of jerks! -__-   It's nice to see Blue still seems quite happy, despite having to deal with this crap for 2 whole years! I really wonder why Blue took everything off, even if I still believe it's because she's planning to leave.

And I also wonder how much their relationship evolved in the past two years (before the epilogue they had time just for one kiss, poor things XD ), and if they even tried "starting a family" as that Lupine put it.

Yeah they are! >8I
She is a master of optimism, even after everything she has went through, or if nothing else at least on the surface. u-u 
We shall see :P 

I can only show so much during this epilogue, but hopefully I will be able to show some development in their relationship. :)  I guess Shadow would not feel comfortable answering that :D 
but considering last time we saw them they had just gone through a very traumatic event, so I think it would be possible that neither of them have felt like it would be a good time to plan on starting a family yet, especially considering their environment that probably won't even allow them to be wed.  (I must admit I have still not decided what the equivalent of a wedding ceremony that lupines would have XD)

She keeps all her emotions inside? :[  Poor girl.

hahaha right, definitely not an appropriate question. :D  Sorry Shadow!
That makes sense though, making sure to have an environment suitable for a child to grow up safely before trying anything.

If that helps I also had problems figuring that out for my cats. In the end I decided they have none, everyone can have a relationship with whoever they want anytime they want. If two (or more) members want to have a stable relationship it's their choice.

Well probably not all of her feelings since that is not in her nature, she must have at least talked to Shadow! :D 

yup, At least before purposely planning on starting a family, ofc 'trying something' just for the fun of it is a different thing, :XD: we will never know...

Oh that's surprising, considering all the cultural inspirations you've used so far and since so many different 'wedding' ceremonies exist in different cultures :D It sounds like a very open minded society, at least among-st the cats of your world.
So there are no rules on having a relationship with different caste individual either? Or do the cat races specifically lack caste of any kind? (maybe those are more human thing)
   In my setting the lupines and many other races do not require you to be have a wed to have a relationship with someone or show affection or even have kids,  but it is common and even expected that you have the ceremony if you get kids or plan to have them. 

I was thinking the lupine 'wedding' ceremony or what ever it could be called, could include a full moon hunt/ be integrated in one, but it would be cool also to think of some completely separate ceremony ..won't start rambling about my ideas right now xD

  zackhurrplz -- revamp genesisheybbyplz  We need all the saucy details! XD

Some of the cultures I based my cats on don't really have marriage ceremonies, and I think it better fits their free and open mentality. And no, they have no castes, all the members of the tribe are considered to be equal, and everyone has a role in society usually depending on their skills. They may be a bit wary of outsiders though, and interspecies couples would be considered very weird.
Polygamy is not that rare either, usually with one female for more males.

Now the moon hunt seems to be a perfect timing for a wedding ceremony, considering it's a very important moment for Lupines. :D Maybe if the hunt is successful it means the Creator is giving his blessing to the couple and they can marry.
(personally I love worldbuilding ideas rambles haha)

That's true, and now that i think of all the smaller tribes (in amazon etc) there must actually be quite a few cultures like that.
I guess Caste system or similar wouldn't really work on a small tribe anyways, and I've also thought that lupines as well as ursines, pretty much all but leonines also lack the caste system or similar (Even the cheetah like critters from the continent leonines are from, and they have cities etc) Btw Are all the cat races of your setting all originally from smaller tribes? or are there some cat cultures that have like huge cities, comparable to Romans, Egyptians etc? I know Enorach and the unlucky beggar girl both live in cities, but they seem to be cities that have humans and probably have a lot of different races visit/live in em too (?)

omg I thought the exact same thing! :highfive: about the creators blessing if hunt is successful :D
...I guess I can share the idea then (I'm really itching to tell someone) So in short I thought the ceremony would be pretty much like a full moon hunt with the celebration after the hunt and the eating of raw meat (heart) at the kill site etc. Except the couple would be leading the hunt other pack members  still taking part in the hunt ofc and instead of all the hunters sharing the bit of raw meat at the kill site, only the couple would eat some. 
    Also I guess it would be common to choose someone as your mate from a different pack so they are not closely related to you, full moon gathering being a great opportunity to meet other packs, but ofc there could be lone wanderers looking to join a pack.
 So then the hunt would also include possible welcoming of the new member, and maybe also their close relatives usually the male moving into the females pack, or! the two packs might even join together if the alphas got wed :D

Super late reply! Sorry! :D

I agree, castes make sense in a society which is more "civilized", with differences in roles and wealth among its members. I really hope you're going to expand this world of yours and show us more about the different people who live there, this comic has been an amazing journey and it made me want to know SO much more about the setting! :D

The cats like Enorach ususally live in nomadic tribes, and sometimes in small villages, but that is very rare. There used to be small settlements near the coasts but alas, humans occupied all the areas near the sea forcing them to move in the hinterlands. ^^
The other cats, those who look like caracals (still not sure if they are in the same setting as Enorach or another one, I have to decide), they had a real civilization, with great cities, government, different kingdoms and everything. Now they have been conquered by humans, so their cities changed a bit now.

:la: Thank you so much for sharing, I love learning about lore!
That sounds like a perfect way to do that ceremony, definitely in their style! ^^ Do they also have shamans of some kind to officiate the ceremony or is it the Alphas' duty to "marry" the couple?
Full moon gatherings seems to be the perfect opportunity indeed, also because if no one married outside of their pack there would be a lot of problems with relatives, over time. Mixing is always good.
I guess Lynxians and Ursines have similar traditions? (well, maybe not the heart-biting thing, but something along those lines).

Oh i see, i don't know if the same trick works or not (yet, as i've not used FC much). Anyway, the tepee's/backgrounds are quite grainy. With Prismacolor's you can use white spirit to smooth the grainy look. All you need is a tiny bit on a brush, and brush over. (I'd try it out on scrap paper/image first, to get the hang of it)

Love the comic, keep up the amazing work!

ohhH I need to try out that! I have no idea if that works and I had no idea you could even do that! I need to buy white spirit first  ofc.. xD 
Thank you so much for the advice! I have sort of learned to live with the grainy look because I've never managed to remove it unless I fill in super thick layer of color... and I already take long enough with the pages and too thick layer of color sometimes ruins the color I aim for or then it makes the bg drown all the characters in itself... Do you happen to know if there is a digital editing trick to remove the grainy look without making everything blurry? 

ofc one option would be for me to change the paper I am using.. but as I've done all of this on the same type of paper and I don't know if changing the paper will change the over all look of the pages too  too drastically (I wouldn't want that as it would not fit in with the rest of the comic)...ofc I need to also think about the pricing ..

I am glad you like it! :la:

In my novel, which is a middle-grade fantasy, my hero (a wolf) falls in love with a sea otter. I was a little nervous of a mixed-species relationship at first. But you've handled it well here. There are a lot of positive things to be said about it. I applaud you.  Clap

Thank you! I am glad you think so :) 
Although they are referred as different races in the comic. I've thought that in this fantasy universe the different anthro races are not directly comparable to the equivalent 'animal' species' or maybe a better term would be equivalent primate look-a-likes.
    So in my world for example lynx and a wolf are more distantly related than lynxian and a lupine, who are both also sapient so to speak. (in some sense you could consider them both half human unlike lynx and a wolf since they both share about the same array of human like traits, although humans have never existed in their world )
      I thought the difference in appearance would be possible despite of the genetic closeness, because differences in appearance can be staggering in the real world between the members of the same species like for example dogs.

Then ofc it is a fantasy world with all new critters so there is some freedom and mystery to all those definitions. :p

Anyway I started to ramble, sorry about that, your story idea sounds cute, I hope you get to finish it! :)

Geez... It seems Shadow went from dealing with one faction of racial extremists to possibly having to deal with another all for the sake of Blue. Is it not enough for Blue that everything she believed from Rex was a lie, and that she KILLED him?

Yay!  New update!  =D  And shadow needs a hug as usual.  Though I am curious what the significance of the jewelry is.  Is she going to try and take part in one of the full moon hunts or does it have to do with another tradition of the tribe? (putting my money on her asking him to be her mate and having to do with that  =3 )

Blue better explain herself! :) Previously it was not really mentioned  that Full moon hunt wouldn't allow jewelry, even if not made by lupines.. however not being a lupine might pose a bigger problem if one id trying to attend the full moon hunt.
and well.. we have not heard much of the other traditions yet, I guess we have to wait and see... :P
