chapter cover plus 4 pages this week. i know this is a little bit of an odd place to cut off, sorry about that, but there wasn't really a good place to cut it because of what comes after it (if that makes any sense at all).

i don't say it enough, but thank you to everybody who comments and follows along. i really do appreciate your support. remember you can always bug me with emails and asks on tumblr and stuff! i enjoy it XD speaking of which, i keep dropping spoilers all over my tumblr. oops.

fun fact! "kolya" is a friend of mine's favourite name. she informs me it's short/a nickname for "nikolai". i guess he was named in tribute to her or something.

@BrightLights: ^^
@bombsoverbordeaux: haha wow, i didn't think anybody had taken enough notice of him so far to have an opinion on him! aww you follow along so closely, i love you <3
@mrwiggles: ...so it is!
@Relly: at least his hair is a natural colour? >.>
@szarosen: no, thank you! :D
@Shaula: ah, you misunderstand. i just meant the cutoff for this week - i was going to stop at 3.13 but it would have meant too many pages before we reach another good place to pause. it's still chapter 3 for a while yet.
@Fenya: hahaha "awkward and pained" XD that's pretty accurate, yes!
@darkenergy: haha i'm glad you got that it's a running theme! oh lumi. get a haircut, jeez.
@bluecrow: haha well, kolya is a bit older than tristan anyway, so that's ok!
@Stitchedbullet: staring at YOU.
@Draumer: thank you so much! <3
@Cure: haha thanks! i like drawing him XD
@Aica: thank you so! that might change in September though >_< last year of university...
@jello-bomb: haha go back to the veeery beginning. that's when tristan sees lumi beforehand.
@SunshineMoonlight: aww, thank you so much! i know what you mean, i can see it too but i had to put it there to cover a pretty big mistake lol! i'm terrible like that XD
@Cannetella: haha kolya is super fun to draw, so i like him too! although i get him wrong a lot.
@Mimi-Evelyn: nope, that's not intentional X) i think it's more "kol-ya" than "kol-y-a", but i don't speak russian, so i don't know. he was actually just named for a friend of mine who really likes the name "nikolai", kolya is short for that.
@Kohikki: haha i was happy with everything except his head XD i drew the body first and then i went "yeeeah i'm gonna fuck the head up now". thank you so much! <3
@Ramonerdna: it's greeny-blue. so...unnatural XD
@madmonkeyrtu: ohh, thank you so much! i hope you keep reading :)
@Ryo: haha posters are so silly to ship places though...either you have to fight with a tube or with trying to get it to stay perfectly flat and stiff!

Kolya, you're describing your self.

June 16th, 2011, 5:20 pm

June 16th, 2011, 5:53 pm

June 16th, 2011, 5:53 pm

Look who's talking, Kolya. >:I

June 16th, 2011, 6:41 pm

Thanks for the new pages, they are so preety :D~~~

June 16th, 2011, 6:44 pm

Wow, that was a short chapter.

"With big, round eyes"

Say again?

This needs to end with Lumi showing him Froggy!Tristan. I want to see his face.

June 16th, 2011, 6:55 pm

I never thought we would see him again!
I already like his personality, he looks all akward and pained xD

June 16th, 2011, 6:57 pm

Again with the hair, haha.

June 16th, 2011, 7:34 pm

Young... well i can imagine bay tristan running around...but this nwe fella... all i can come up with is a little boy, short legs and arms, with that face on. And with that face i mean the same size too!

-twisty mode back again, whatever spell you cast last time has finished working!-

June 16th, 2011, 7:47 pm

Big... round... eyes... *A*

June 16th, 2011, 11:59 pm

Ahh, the plot thickens!

I love it! Keep up the great work~ :D

June 17th, 2011, 1:35 am

haha! love this guy's eyes! :D

June 17th, 2011, 5:04 am

Unnatural hair huh? Well at least its pretty!:D
i always look forward to your updates since its always more than one page:)

June 17th, 2011, 7:39 am

His eyes are looking pretty big now! If Tristan had seen Lumi before now, that would be cool!

June 17th, 2011, 8:03 am

Hi, again!
I got the feeling that you're getting even better at this comic thing ;) Really loved page 3.11, especially the plant - so beautiful!
Here, on the first frame, thanks to Lumi's hair it looks like it's Kolya who's speaking...I hope you understand what I mean. ^_^'
Anyway, it's nothing!
I like his eyes...He looks like quite a looney.^______________^

June 17th, 2011, 11:37 pm

Aww, I can tell that I'm going to love this fellow. He has the most magnificent wide-eyed stare. xD

June 18th, 2011, 2:31 am

Kolya, sound like Collier, with hair as black as coal that's a nice link (honest to God I don't know if authors think of this kind of thing or whether its just the fans but hey! if the boot fits)

June 18th, 2011, 4:25 am

3.C: I dunno why you're not happy with his head, the whole piece looks terrific.
I loved Tristan's design, although he's nice as a froggy too.
3.11: This page is so pretty. I especially love the top panel!
I love windy scenes, I can practically hear the wind howling.
Whatcha doin', Lumi? Getting ingredients for a potion?
3.12: :O Who's found her!? Her face tells me whoever it is, she isn't exactly happy to see them.
2:13: Who is this guy!? A human who is knowledgable about Witches AND Tristan, apparently? He looks sort of awesome.
2.14: :D Tristan's cousin, eh? I like that he actually believed Tristan instead of just being like "Whatever, dude, you didn't see a witch". I also love his design, ooo.

Awesome update<3

June 18th, 2011, 7:51 pm

her hair is unnatural?

June 20th, 2011, 8:28 pm

only started reading hemlock about 2 weeks ago, and i will say i am loving it. One of the favourite art styles and brilliant storyline i have seen.
Thanks and looking forward to more :)

June 22nd, 2011, 5:09 pm
