is that….bruising around Jahrds neck? how are you supposed to see bruising under fur?
No no, that’s not bruising. The strangler had dirty hands 😉
One of the two:
1) He was strangled hard enough to tear some fur at the critical places
2) It’s one of Calterra’s remedies to help Jahrd neck.
BTW, I really like the way Kirie is sneaking away in the background of the first panels.
First, from my understanding and the research that I attempted on the matter, under thin fur (like on a critter’s neck), especially if the fur’s white, severe bruising is possible to see. This clearly? Nah, not even close, unfortunately. But I really wanted to show something so that I could effectively convey that Jahrd has a very, very sore neck, so when I saw that it’s possible at all, I went with it. Decided exaggeration was better than understatement in order to get the message across, and sometimes it is.
The he-lost-some-fur theory works a bit to that end, I suppose, although I wasn’t thinking it. I do kind of like it, though.
But really, and trust me, he just looked even more ridiculous sitting there being babied with nary a scratch to show for it.
Really? Interesting, because I was thinking I’d like to see Kirie hug the forlorn Jahrd and not be all motherly like about it. It’s just the romantic in me I guess.
XD Ha ha, also d’aww …. And I’m sure she’d be happy to hear that there are still people out there who can see her in a positive light.
Awww he looks so forlorn i just want calterra to hug him and he all motherly <3
D’awww. It would be sweet if she could let down her defenses once in a while. Jahrd could probably use the hug.
