#140 – “More Like Sisters in Shoulder”

Most of the time, I prefer to play across with camera angles across a page to avoid repetition; if you you have just five panes in a row of just the same head talking from the same angle, then often just a single large pane will serve the purpose better, or in the least putting in some other method to twist it up a little. Then, of course, we have times like this, when the repetition is used simply because it repeats.

I’ve wanted to do the start of this page for awhile, even though it took me some time to decide just what context would suit it best. It simply amused me to put so much blatant non-verbal communication into a single page.

      I think the easiest answer is that she doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to, or prefers no to; when glances and facial expressions communicates her intent well enough, then she won’t bother with words because they would – to her – serve little purpose.

      She speaks when she has to, but usually to point and prefers not to elaborate. Of course, Hani still very much communicates – she tends to express herself quite openly in fact; just not with words.

      That’s due to the skin colour and how the surrounding light reflects on her – as Hani and the rest have much darker skin, the light doesn’t reflect on them as much as on their surroundings – that can be pretty much compared to reality – I hope that gave some insight to the light mechanics with this type of animation, as I’m not much of a animation specialist either ;)

    Aww, that’s sweet and funny :3

    I love the way Rei is scratching the back of Hani’s ear to tease and get her attention :D It’s good to see to see her gentler, kinder side.

    Pretty much the above, I always love it when you manage to make such chemistry between them but amusing at the same time =p

    Apart from that.. Only stuff I could really say about every frame. Rei and Hani just generally crack me up.

    I really like this page, nothing really happens, just some small-talk. That is good once in a while, but ofc not too much :P

    The only thing that bothers me is Hanis right eye in the third picture. It looks at little, idk, wrong :P in some way. Like it is falling out or something. I can see it is hard to make her look to the side… i just dont know :P

    If this goes on like this, Hani and Tiny soon will be the same as they were in the elflands. Hani feeling good… Does that mean that she is now killing and hurting for pleasure again, instead of doing it to blow off steam? The sport is back! Great work on those glances by the way.
    Continue the good work!

    I really enjoyed Te’s last remark in the final panel. It is good to see that she recalls that as well as a certain punch, and judging from her facial expression, having stated it outright is an indication of which thing she considers far more important.

    I think that if you read Hani’s mind in 5 first panes it would probably go like:

    Pane #1: “Did she just say that?”

    Pane #2: “My, that felt kind of good. I never thought she would have such a grudge agains her own superior.”

    Pane #3: “What’s up with that look?”

    Pane #5: “Oh, so she thinks I’m a crybaby now? How cute.”
