    She has more meat (for lack of a better phrase) in her cheeks, no fangs, freckles and you said yourself she looked younger. Try harder Or better yet, stop trying.

    Eve has fangs?

    But yeah, I guess Eve's face is narrower, at least in the more recent Bibliography pages (compared to the earlier Bibliography pages, where she basically looks the same as the girl but with a pointier chin).

    Occasionally, yes.

    My point is that noting facial similarity is pretty pointless in manga since it's stylized artwork, and usually relatively simplistic*.

    But can we STOP discussing her face? I like the three pages we've gotten so far and hope for more.

    While yes, Elagune's art style does wobble around a bit as he experimented, I just C&P for side by side comparison shots.

    I think that they're similar in the fact that they're girls, and that's about it.

    Okay, fine.


    Let's try to decipher the meaning of the symbols on page 2! What? I had to post more than "okay, fine".
    Bottom right: Lungs or hoofprint?
    There's also fire, lightning, water, heart (obligatory trope mention: What Kind of Lame Power is Heart? ) and the moon...
    Is that spiky one an explosion?
    Then there's one that looks like mountains.

    Ya, but a lot of comic creators don't like to be hosted by keenspot (or is it drunkduck? or am I thinking of somewhere else?) because of the poor comics hosted, not many people look at a keenspot comic, or something.

    Wild theorizing already. Good work, Elagune. Your fanbase likes this.

    As to my theory, he picked fourteen because it's twice 7, one more than 13, same reason the dwarves recruited Bilbo, to avoid the unlucky number. Mainly because 7 was easy to remember, though, and once he had 7 things, he just devised opposites for them.

    ...Yup, planting wild theories, waiting for them to grow.

    Most of those elements had opposites to begin with...

    Just found that. Looks interesting. Some elements (namely Death and Darkness) look weird as an element, because they're just the absence of their opposite. But let's see what Elagune has in mind!
    The abilities of the Force: Control, Alter, Delete.
    Zombie Apocalypse if and only if Cake.

    I'm surprised that I have fanart already! I like how it looks.

    Thaumaturge

    Two new page up!

    Anyway, after some advice it looks like I'm going to be hosting on Drunkduck for the moment. I bet it's pretty annoying clicking through the pages, so this'll probably make it easier for you guys to read.

    That is quite fantastic, actually. Truly good webcomics are few and far between, and this looks as though it might have the potential to be one. I was a little turned off by the whole 14 elements deal, but the art is fantastic, and the world feels unique already. Good job.
