Trav, I'm in love with the last panel. Your willingness to take the time to ink in all that beautiful detail pays off wonderfully. I do know that having a buffer helps one to relax and do what needs to be done, but your commitment to making beautiful art for your beautiful story is what shines through in such beautiful details. Just lovely, thank you! <3

Naked mentor is…naked… 🙂

And the best rulers are the ones who don't want to be ruler. They understand the people and the problems of a nation in ways the power-hungry never could.

    i guess it doesn't matter though if your a lizard,

    as for the best leaders- i have always thought the best leader was the leader that actually served his people

      I think the best leaders are those who don't want to be leaders because they aren't after power. Once they take the throne, they serve their people because they don't want to conquer other lands, start wars, or grab power they can't handle. They want to live in peace, and they make sure their people live in peace, as well. Bean may not want to be the ruler, but because of his upbringing, his honesty, and his desire for peace, he would make a great ruler.

        I agree with that- yet I think there is also some bit of training- and as we have seen bean has really been in the background – just being pulled along. What kind of leader would he be if he continued down that path without any direction.

          Grey Matter » 2 Jun 2012 »

          He couldn't be a leader if he only let himself be pulled along other's paths. However, I feel that Bean is going to have to make some very serious and difficult choices in the very near future. Choices that, I am sure, he will not want to make. What is that saying… Pressure makes diamonds.

          Do they even have diamonds in your world? 😉

          i feel that you are right- we forget as well bean is about 12 or so- he is still very unsure about his place in the world

The art in panel 4 looks. . . off, for some reason.

Still, the panels with little-bragon-man smugly sipping his coffee/tea are hilarious . 🙂

I like the close up panels of Thadeus. Especially #3 where he is sipping his drink.

I don't think the Bean needs to become a king. The main theme is curing the swords and bringing back peace to the land.

Also I think it's inconsiderate of the dragon not to bring refreshment for Bean as well. 😛

    🙂 is the main theme curing the sword?

    Yeah thaddeus can be a little inconsiderate at times, but in his defense he is not used to having guest

I like that becoming the chosen one means something more difficult than getting a magic sword.
Arthur Pendragon, for example, after getting the sword from the stone, must endure a year qualifying period after which the nobles must vote if they accept his right to the throne or not. And he spends the entire time learning politics ,both from the books and watching the nobility themselves, offering them gifts (money, food, horses, promises of future favors) until he gets the approval of most of them as their new king.

    I agree- a sword does not just make one a king. It will be interesting to see what bean is going to have to figure out for the future

Have your say!
