I’m sure you’ll all be thrilled to know that the whole last chapter of RMR nearly became a cautionary tale last night when my external hard drive decided to delete all of the pages from the last two and a half months on a whim. Fortunately at some point just before I left New Zealand I backed everything up on my laptop (I’m as surprised as anyone) so nothing was lost in the end, but for a good ten minutes I was in a bit of a state and had to have a bit of a lie down afterwards, since apparently I don’t deal with these things very well. I suppose the prospect of having to redo several hundred hours worth of work would kind of put a damper on anyone’s day.

Always back up your files! D:

Wow, AMAZING rock texture!

Signed, Awesome work Rose :D
On another note: caves like this wouldn’t exist in Scotland. They would be flooded permanently.
And everyone who is used to the rain in Ashul (was it? I think so) would fear for their live in sucha cave.

Nice beachfront scenes. And the transition between the first to panels is creative.

I can easily sympathise with Adrianna there – I had a mortal fear of tidal caves throughout my childhood. It’s what claustrophobia+fear of drowing would result in, I guess.

Nice page, I like the texture of the rock of course and how the shape of the rock is used to divide the top panel. It’s good that you didn’t lose any data. The thing to always remember is that any and all hard drives WILL fail, somewhere and sometime. That said, backing up is one of those tasks that is left until one day it’s too late.

Some other comic artist actually had that happen to them. Didn’t back up their files, and poof! Sad. At least you were smart enough to make a backup :3. You might want to scan for viruses. Your computer shouldn’t do that by it’s self. o.O

Is the last panel supposed to read “Oh God.”, or “Oh good.”. I ask because I always thought you have to capitalize the word God, unless there’s some funny rules I don’t know about. That and a slightly sarcastic “Oh good.” comment would fit Adrianna as well. However she does appear to be a bit meek there, so I have no idea. =x

Generally speaking, “God” = Christian god, “god” = some other god. Adrianna’s lower-case “god” indicates that she’s probably not talking about Christianity. :)
