wow… just wow… i cant stop staring at it. its so beautiful and the story it tells…. woooow
i really have a lot of respect for you that you can make such a piece
both of you!
THis is frickin’ awesome!
Such an epic story…
First AND second post! Sweet…
Oh my.. This is amazing!
This page is epic. Did I said that out loud? I meant EPIC.
LITERALTEARS. ;A; This changes EVERYTHING. How can i sleeeeep knowing this happened ;w;
This page made my heart skip!
This was an awesome page! No words, not needed. And this is my favorite contrast of colors with the blue and red (probably a holdover from loving Aladdin when I was a kid). Now I wonder how this is going to effect Iki. How much of his old “self” is going to be realized now that it appears he remembers, or does he remember it all? And if so, will it carry into the “real world”? Great work, guys!
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
wooo Iki’s woken up and remembered his past and loosing his pal the human spirit to the two headed double spirit dragon now the rest of the pack and Iki’s adopted parents will prob see him full on spirit powah and be like ‘what the frick has happened to our Iki!’ XD
I do believe Raigho knows that he the blue spirit.
I’m speechless. This is… amazing. Breath taking. Beautiful. The story that it tells, it portrays it so fluently. I’d love this as a wallpaper because this is just far too amazing.
:|_________________| Oh. My. God.
oh mather of god…. awsome
WOW just… Wow… A battle between the wyvern spirits and Hati and Askr, this wyvern is “half-fused”, it’s half white and half black, what should have caused that ? Girls you ARE THE BEST !!!!
Gave me chills~
HUGE….. this page is indeed an important clue to the future of this story.
I don’t know which is more heart-wrenching; the events that were obviously repressed, or Iki’s expression.
The cracked up facial markings really give in to that heartbroken look in combination of his face. Hati really did break Iki.
So did Iki and Askr, ah, interrupt something in panel 2?
No those are the White and Black Spirits of the Dragons. Apparently they are joined as one and share one body. Some rumors say that one dragon was trying to survive extinction so they joined to survive together.
My theory is that they joined because they figured they were stronger together and because they could.
Wow… I knew this page would be awesome, but I never expected it to be THAT epic.
Am I the only one who thinks that this would be an awesome wallpaper?
I can see why. Yikes. Looks like Skoll/Iki had a less-than fun encounter with another pair of spirits. Can’t wait to learn the story there.
I think I’m staring just like Iki at the monitor… :O
Wait, take a second and take the 200 live action page and this one, first the live action one. Then this one. Iki is so shocked and dumb found, LOOK AT WHAT YOU DONE TO HIM. D;
I want a wallpaper of everything here.
I second that! We NEED a FRIGGIN wallpaper for this page~~~just TOO AWESOME :3
I was looking through the cast page… And Seven and [the guy’s name, can’t remember now Dx] were sent to look for the white human spirit by the Temple of Askr… I guess that Askr is worshipped or something x3
Anyways, this is an amazing page .w. Anyone who doesn’t forgive you for taking this long is going down in a pile of your fans, including me I really hope that Hati doesn’t tease Iki more, because I have a feeling that in his current state, Iki could crush Hati with a single glare
WOw. Poor Iki.
Holy crap this was totally worth the wait!
Wow…the cracks in the page are so realistic…i almost thought it was by screen that got cracks from loading a page that is too epic too process…how am i suppose to sleep with such an awesome image stuck in my head…this is probly gonna lead to a wet dream:P
Oh … my … God.
I´m speechless. Yeah…I am! That´s at any rate the best page of all time. Really…I’m impressed. It looks like the white soul would be gone now …
I really love the different panels. I think it’s hard to remember for Iki…or Skôll this time. I´m very very enthusiastic.
Really good work. In this small panel-these are Hati and Raigho? Oh, I can´t wait for the next page…oh, I can, but I´m soo curious.
Actually, that’s Jera and Raigho when they found little pup Iki in the storm. :3
The ones in the last panel are Raigho and Jera, just before they have found Iki in the snow. Hati is in the sky above them, just as a black shade again;)
Wallpaper PLEASE!!! i beg you
Exacly what i was about to ask.
O.O Sooooo epic…. epic page is epic…
OMG MY EYEBALLS EXPLODED!!!!!
I don’t care if all the pages take the same time of this. It’s AMAZING!
That dragon/wyvern nomnomed on the human white spirit
just like that .___.
and Iki’s “skull” face, like that od Hati when he first showed up..
hmm I wonder what’s Hati doing howling in the first panel though..?
is it possible to have a larger view of this?
I feel this size doesn’t do justice to all the detailed scenes in here..
keep it up
This might just be me, but in the first panel, it looks to me like Hati’s hurt/in pain for some reason… Although he’s probably just howling, you’re right XD
Both theories :D, I think Hati is howling in pain because he couldn´t get in time to help his brother maybe?
How could they ever think that would end well? A wolf and a human vs two dragons?
Skoll–I bite your tongue.
Dragon–I bite your head.
And what was the human gonna do, punch it? Just foolish.
I agree with this .3.
But I guess they had to try.
After all, Hati said that Skoll had been fighting for 300 years… Maybe this wyvern/dragon thing is what he’d been fighting?
Oh my goodness…
So many questions… is the white spirit gone for good? What was the war over? Who were those dragon guardians?
FFFEEEEEAAAARR! *explodes from complete overload* This is spectacular!
I expect a lot from you guys artwise normally, but I did not see this coming… Just wow. You’ve blown everyone away with this new page, with the story and with the artwork. It may have taken you longer to do this page, but damn and hell did the wait make up appreciate this page even more!
i wonder how that fight started with the dragons the other 2 white spirits
IT TOOK MY BREATH AWAY THATZ AMAZIN!, how do u post pictures here?
holy crap!!! THIS IS EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <<<mind blown
Wow, dragon spirits…
Iki się nagle wydaje jakiś doroślejszy ^^
these are Fire and Ice, the elements that first made the world. after
all, they need represantation in the mortal world as well. why not a two
O…M…G…. So…There’s are… His memories?.. WOW!
I love the panel near his legs, with Raigho and Hati..
Iki!! Don’t broke, don’t broke! ( Ah, i mean Skoll)
Holy crap that was like his entire back story on one page and omigosh that’s SO sad! ;_; -forevercry-
That’s how he got sent down as a pup! Love this, hope you guys make it into a wallpaper!
Can you make this into a wallpaper? It would be awesome…
I SO SECOND THAT STATEMENT.
I never thought we’d find out how Iki came to Earth. It’s amazing to see it, but sad at the same time – the two dragons blasted him to this realm. He fell like a star, and Raigho and Jera found him then… Oh gosh, the whole comic just flew before my eyes. Shame the human spirit was swallowed… I have a feeling we’ll see her again soon.
Beautiful work. We’re all in complete awe. *Standing ovation*
Oh my god, it is so beautiful. It is perfect *__* Better than perfect *___*
Skoll shouldnt be made to feel guilty…it wasn’t his fault, it looks like he tried as hard as he could to protect the human…Now the question is, Is the Iki that we know, now gone forever? (skoll might have a different personality) and what is that dragon exactly?
You broke Iki’s face!
What a creative way to show Skoll coming back to his mind. His memories are violently recollected, and shatter Iki’s world as he knew it. Well done.
Now, it looks like Skoll and Askr are confronted by a double headed dragon spirit. During combat, Askr is devoured, and Skoll is forced to reincarnate as Iki. The only questing is what was Hati doing? Was he calling to arms or summoning the beast?
Oh my God, Iki, what did you DO?
ej ale gdzie Iki ma ogon? Nie obraźcie się tego tak właściwie nie widać ale chyba powinien go mieć XD
trzyma go pewnie do góry, więc ciało zasłania xD
No może ale strona i tak jest przepiękna szczególnie gwiazdy tam gdzie raigho i jera stoją
Thie page is Epic!!!
So amazing! As always ever page takes my breath away
WOW O.O OMG THAT’S SO AMAZING O.O
I’m wondering what’s going to happen after this . . .
especially to Iki . . . (since this is Skoll now, right?)
Well, I’m still waiting for him to go super Wolfyan and supersonically fly out of there like Neo in the Matrix to go save Askr…but that’s only a speculation.
Omg this is absolutely amazing
omg… poor skoll…
this is by far my favrite page!. Really amzing
Nie mogę się doczekać następnej strony!
oh my gosh. this is the most beautiful page page ever.
Black ad White Dragon spirits? o3o So cool.
This is so…beautiful
OMG this page is AMAZING, totally worth the time it took *———-*
what is that???
isn’t the red spirits his brother what’s going on
Oh my… this… this is…*nosebleed* amazing!!!
I think I had a mental orgasm while looking at this page.
Oh wow o-o that was just, awesome. Really love this page but i feel bad for Iki D:
Skoll’s face… poor guy
So I’m guessing from this, he was killed by the dragons (What do hey represent?!) and his next life was being the pup, Iki. Askr was also killed and her new form is a mystery currently, unless you drew it in that one thing. So now, Akreon and Tanathe, I think there’s some questions to answer.
1. Who are the dragons and what do they represent?
2. What do Askr and Embla represent?
3. What did Askr look like before she got eated?
4. Since Munin is the guardian of memories is Hugin the guardian of forgetting or what is he?
and 5. Do I get a begal?
Oh, also people, look why it took so long. Normal comic pages take… well it could be done within the week or day, however I became familiar with this and these are a PAIN. See, it’s not just drawing panels, it’s stars, glow affects, shattered glass, and worst of all drawing above drawing ABOVE DRAWING ABOVE DRAWING…
So be happy you got your page and shut up about being impatient, it’s a team effort for them anyway and a hobby. -So cruel-
What are you talking about?? The white human spirit didn’t look like a man or a woman. Also the human was eaten, which stopped the white human spirit from ever gaining a new form.(that’s kind of the point of the whole freaking comic, Askr is apparently dead and won’t return for what looks like forever.)
so in conclusion The white spirit, both human and wolf, fought with the dragon spirits and the wolf could repeat his revive cycle, however the human white spirit couldn’t
I should hope the white human spirit couldn’t come back after that. He was freaking EATEN by the red dragon!!! IDK but I think if the white human came back and remembered THAT, the human race would be on the edge of extinction every generation!! The white spirit would probably be suicidal in every life after words!!
Officially my favorite page. Iki remembers who he is! And those dragons!
and Raigho and Jera saw the shooting star! at the snowstorm! I Understand now!
So where Skoll and Asker trying to stop the Dragon brothers (or sisters) from doing something and got killed in process?
Such a good comic page, LOVE IT!!!
Did the dragons do something wrong or what? Why are they attacking the dragons
Dang Skoll, what you do boy?
This has to be my favourite page…
Iki suddenly became a thousand times more interesting. Great job!
. . . 0_0 . . . I was waiting impatiently for this page . . . It was worth it. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest just after seeing this page.
Oh, by the way. IKI! DON’T BREAK IKI! i mean skoll ^^;
This is what I’m getting; Askr (who I think is the human white spirit) was going on a journey with Skoll, to bring down the dragons, which no one wanted, for they were killing other species nearly to extinction, and the easiest way to get rid of them was to take down the dragon white and black spirits. I’m not entirely sure if it’s one dragon with two heads or two separate dragons, I much less know their genders and/or names, but I’m getting a hunch it’s 1 dragon with two heads, and they’re both boys. So they were fighting, and Askr was eaten by the dragon black spirit, unable to reincarnate or whatever. Aksr’s pained cries probably distracted Skoll, and the dragons took this quick moment of motionless sadness (Askr and Skoll were true friends) to blast Skoll. Their blasts could’ve changed Skoll to not remember anything and to change him to a mortal wolf pup. Apparently it was an air fight among the clouds, and the white spirits can walk on clouds, so basically the dragon(s) don’t need wings, even though they were using them, because in all the parts that we could see the dragon’s wings, they were spread. But since we know mortals do not walk the clouds, he fell to the ground, and Raigho and Jera found him. Living with them, his memory was sealed from the sad, losing battle. But I have the feeling the dragon(s) were/was defeated by the human and wolf black spirits (and obviously the human and wolf black spirits survived) because no one ever saw dragons again. The End!
This is my longest comment ever on Off-White. I don’t know how I figured this out from only one page, but hey, I still figured this out.
Thanks if you read this all.
At least you think that you have figured all that out….
There are still too many variables, maybes and whatevers here, if you look at me. Oh and…you can not prove all that, can you?
I think the place in the clouds is were the spirits go moments after they die a mortal death and wait to live again.
omg omg he remembered!
Am I the only one getting epic feels here? ;-; I don’t usually feel this much emotion from a comic page. Cartoons, anime etc. yes. But not comics/manga. I feel like the wolf and human white spirit were a team ready to die for whatever their intention was. The dragons are perhaps divine spirits, not to be messed with. They were horribly overpowered and died in vain. For some reason only Skoll was reborn, maybe the death of the human white spirit was punishment for their attack/betrayal(?). Either way I believe not only does Skoll blame himself but he also knows the reason. However this is simply what this page makes me FEEL not my theories.
I absolutely MUST ultimately congradulate the girls for completing this. WONDERFUL!!!
Why does everyone keep calling the white human spirit a she? If you look at what I guess counts as a second panel, everyone can see it’s a guy. A freaking man that everyone is calling she. Anyway, I love this page! Great job!!!
Ummm.. did you even see the art for the black and white human spirits? Askr is a girl.
Can I ask where that art is? I thought Askr was a boy, too
It’s in the Gallery page And a lot of people thought he was male, so you’re not on your own LOL,I love how moody people get when others get things wrong. It’s hilarious,isn’t it?
http://akreon.deviantart.com/art/Embla-and-Askr-162195282 There ya go. Read the artist’s description and you’ll see that Askr is, indeed a female for the purposes of this story. And perhaps in the spirit world, gender doesn’t really exist or matter.
Ack, I just realized it was another user who asked for the art, but it may help clear up the confusion anyway.
Jera and Raigho and the bottom watching a “star” falling…. This page is awesome!!! Poor Skoll, he lost his friend :(, and I think Hati will fell happy to having his brother back, but at the same time, he would possibly feel bad now for taking back so painful memories to Skoll. And yes, as someone said earlier, I think now Iki’s personality will change a lot. Also, I want to know what did the dragons do and which guardians are them.
I don’t know about Hati’s happiness, but he is currently laughing his head off.
I guess we’ll find out soon enough, but if my brother went missing and shirked his duties because he was being an irresponsible buttface and I had to take over his chores ’cause he was living in denial…I’d probably act the same way after tracking him down. Or just beat the bejeezus out of him, depending on my mood. I’m not saying Hati will be a totally nice guy at this point, but I don’t think he’s all too happy he’s still got a mess to clean up. He just may have his brother’s help now.
Of course I could be wrong and he’ll still be a conniving douchecanoe despite breaking Iki’s brain. ;P
Sorry if I post again XD, I wanted to ask all of you for your opinion, some of you are saying that this is a two- headed dragon, but, why are there four wings and not two?? It looks for me like there are two dragons flying together and not just one. What do you think?
I think they are the black and white dragon spirits. Seems clear enough to me. Though why they are working together to try and attack the wolf and human, I am not sure. Really curious as to what it all means now.
So THAT’S how they found Iki. Interesting…
This page is EPIC!!! Awesome job on this page! Love the two dragon spirits!
This answers so many questions, but raises so many more. Thank you, everyone involved, for bringing the glory you bring to the webcomic medium.
Wow. Well, I didn’t expect two dragons. Maybe they were threatening the existence of that world.
Oh my… O.O
Wow…now I understand the delay this is the coolest page in the entire comic can’t wait for the next!!!>v<
O.o …….. It’s so………. beautiful! THE PLOT BEGINS!!!!!
I think you mean “thickens.” The plot began a while ago
i guess so.
I wonder if those dragons are supposed to be Nidhogg/Nidhoggr? It could be a singular dragon with two heads, or Off-White could have diverted from the mythology a bit to make Nidhogg into two separate entities.
In Norse mythology, Nidhogg was known as the “Dread Biter” and was supposedly the most feared of the early Nordic dragons. He lived at
the foot of the world ash tree, Yggdrasil. The tree had three great
roots, one of which reached over the freezing mist and darkness of Niflheim
where Hel reigned as Queen of the Underworld. Nidhogg could also
be found at Hvergelmir [the bubbling cauldron], the spring in Niflheim
which is the source of all the rivers of the world. Nidhogg was a dragon
that devoured the corpses of evil-doers, and he would gnaw at the roots
of Yggdrasil when he got tired of the taste of dead flesh. Since the
world tree supported all life and Nidhogg attempted to destroy it, Nidhoggr
was personified as evil itself. Both Yggdrasil and Nidhogg were destined to survive the final catastrophe
of Ragnarok, the doom of the gods and ultimately, the end of the world.
Fires and floods would not deter the dragon from its incessant feasting
on the boundless supply of the dead.
Based upon that, since the end of the world appears to be drawing near, perhaps Askr and Skoll decided to take it upon themselves to try and stop Nidhogg from feasting upon that ‘tree of life,’ hoping it would buy some more time for their species and for the world (which would coincide with Hati’s intentions at the beginning of the comic when he’s searching to reunite with Skoll). But, this adventure of theirs would prove to be their undoing, and Nidhoggr was able to easily overpower them. He was able to devour Askr. If Askr is still trapped within Nidhogg, it could be preventing him/her from being reborn (the clash could also be what left the scratch marks upon Askr’s face in the concept sketch). Skoll managed to *barely* escape, surviving the fiery attack that Nidhogg unleashed upon him, but it blasted him right out of the Netherworld. The trauma of Skoll’s fall then reverted him back into a mortal form and caused him to repress his memories. The other spirits probably don’t know exactly what happened, just that Askr was last seen with Skoll and has suddenly disappeared, breaking the symmetry of the human spirits. Thus, they blame Skoll for Askr being MIA.
that is some deduction there, amazing knowledge on mythology
I must agree with you there.
And this is now my explanation for the comic.
That is just so amazing just wow.
Thank you very much for the information
and you except me to read this all?! lol only joking thanks 4 the informations
And I thought I knew about mythology…holy crud dude, nice. And you might be right but we have no idea what the creators of this comic are thinking BUT I do agree that this is a good possiblity of what happened.
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD
I can’t even describe this!! Man, how I wish I had your artistic skills…
Oh, and I just remembered the chapter’s cover! Is it related to this page?
And the mysteries unravel. There are endless possibilities for this page! ;D
Hati, you gave Iki brain damage
Impossible to draw this
Hati totally broke Iki.
We appreciate the delay, believe me! This is amazing.
Hati…. what have you done?
So…. Iki will still be called Iki? :3
Iki was just the name given to him by Raigho and Jera.
I’m guessing he will be referred to as Skoll now.
Okay but in all fairness, something in him was ALREADY broken, however you look at it.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE MAKE THIS AN AVAILABLE WALLPAPER
It’s vertical… just… make it the background of your phone, or something.
Is this how the white human spirit was destroyed. Or died?
Ok…now i know i have to search about white and black dragons in Nordic mythology xD
Wow! This page is amazing. I completely understand the delay.
Wow. Just… wow. Definitely worth the wait!
Wow he was repressing a LOT.
:O I know so much now I feel I will break soon lol. Wonderful page and a lot for Iki to hold back on. I feel your pain my friend.
So absolutely stunning. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful story.
In that shard to the left of the page, it looks like Hati is entombed in ice. Was this done by something or someone, so Hati could not stop Skoll from doing whatever it was he did?
I’m still not clear on exactly what happened, but it was bad. So bad that a strong spirit like Skoll not only supressed the memory, but created a persona for himself that was totally opposite of what he was. Silly, ineffectual Iki could never convince anyone to follow him to their doom.
Well, I see it as like … Hati was calling out for Sköll, but he was either not listening (too stubborn) or unable to respond.
WORTH THE WAIT BY 100 this page is amazing!
Wow…absolutely gorgeous! This was totally worth the wait! But now we must wait again for the next page of this beautiful artwork. I simply love this. I feel as though my own heart is breaking as Iki/Skoll regains his memories.
Hey, is that Reigho and Jera down there at the bottom?
It is Raigho and Jera. Raigho told Othala earlier in the story that a beam of light crashed into the ground, then they found Iki. So yes, it is them.
Strange still, because it is a star coming down far far away.
And it was snowing back then, in Raigho’s story.
Only after Sköll pierced through the night sky, he looked up and the clouds fled.
Perhaps it was a few days later they found Iki?
If they were out of the weather looking over in that direction, it could be within the misty/foggy atmospheric effect you can see there. Or if that wasn’t supposed to represent looking through more atmosphere as I assume, it might even BE that effect. Sort of like when you see a storm far enough away, and it just looks like an epic grey wave. ’cause you know… otherwise it’d be in space… which would be weird.
Maybe it started snowing after Skoll felt? I don’t think they found him days later, because Raigho says they say the light and they found Iki. The way he says that means they found him inmediatly after that.
they saw* the light sorry
I wonder if the dragon is either Níðhöggr/Nidhogg/Nidhöggr or Fafnir/Fafner/Fraenir.
Yeah,I supposed Nidhogg would be in the comic,because it would’ve been amazing to see how the girls drew him I’m glad he’s in it
awesomeness, i dont know the order though xD lol but it is awesome, when I saw the white and the black spirit of the dragons I was shattered since I’ve always wanted to see a wolf and a dragon fighting xD <3 I love it!!! I want the book now =3
It starts at Hati and runs clockwise.
The moment Hati looks back it’ll be like, “Gah! Your face! What the heck!?!?”
The dragons remind me of the Arthurian legend where the white and red (English and Welsh) dragons fought each other.
This is simply….
The most amazing page yet.
Everything looks so perfect, I can understand the amount of time and effort you put into this and I appreciate that you’re sharing it with us. <3
If I were Iki, I would be VERY confused right now.
Absolutely Amazing! This comic has me so excited XD Such beautiful artwork and an incredible story. Well worth the wait for this page
Goodness me…I can totally understand why it took so long now…worth the wait =D
And…is that DRAGONS i see?! AHHH this just keeps getting better omg i LOVE dragons…ahem and lets not forget wolves ;D
Iki or should i say Skoll is getting his memories back whoot whoot awesome! :3
I so can’t wait for whats gonna happen next omg >.:)
holy crap. i think my heart stopped beating for a moment.
Oh my garshnickles!!! This just beautiful! SOOOO worth the wait!!!! 8D
Fought dragon spirits? o.O
*looks carefully at the background* Is it a dragon? Oh, my yes it is. You’ve combined some of my favorite things into one now. Art, dragons, comics, and or course wolves. *wiggle* That’s where messer Iki came from… interesting concept, I likes.
. . . holy crap. THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE IT!!!! It says why Iki was found all alone in the snow!
Wow!Awesome! Níðhöggr, I’m guessing?I’ve seen another comment that thinks it’s Níðhöggr, too, so I’m guessing it’s him! (Feel free to tell me that YH IT IZ IM CUZ IT NORZ MYTHOLGEE AND DIZ COMIC BASESED ON NORs MYTIOLOHGY SO DUUHHHH!!!!111STU1piD!!!11) I suspected we’d be seeing him in my earlier comments, because I would’ve loved to have seen how you drew him. He looks so cool
I really love the grapics on this page! I think the centaur spirit is really cool, too! (I really hope that’s a centaur, or I’ll never hear the end of my mistake XD) I loooove the Dragon Spirits! The effect of the glass breaking looks amazing,too! It reminds me of one of the section ‘covers’ you drew.
I’m sorry to say that its not a centaur…xD
Thank you. I’ll look closer next time.
Thanks for being nice about it,by the way.
It’s just Sköll running next to Ask. Sorry, no centaur.
Oopsies! I made a stoopid mistake!I’m very sorry for being so goddarn stupid.
Thanks for telling my nicely,by the way. It’s very much appreciated.
Oh,no! That isn’t a centaur at all! It’s Skoll and Askr/Ask/Whatever. Whoopsie!
I made a big stupid mistake. Thanks to Dragonflight and Ohai for not jumping down my throat for it. Ah,well. Still,I’m very sorry for being so dumb and stupid and idiotic and not noticing Sorry if I’ve offended anyone with my mistakes
I would say Nidhogg, but seeing as there are actual twin serpents named Goin and Moin, I’m gonna take a wild guess and go with them.
Absolutely beautiful page, as usual!
I agree with you. I’m curious!
I will mizz deh stoopid Iki. ;.;
Whoa! Speechless THIS IS AWS… *braincrash* “overload for perfection”
It almost looks like the two dragon spirits have attempted to merge themselves. Skoll and Askr must have gone to stop them from doing something evil….
Duh they were just having sex
Seems like we have epic dragonsaurus battle coming up some time 8)
Big apologies for accidentally thinking Askr/Ask and Skoll running next to each other where actually a centaur. XD I’m ever so sorry,everyone.
*Sits in the corner wearing a Dunce hat* XD
haha dnt worry bout it XD it was funny tho. hey a centaur spirit wud b cool tho :O
awesomeness… *.* so this is why you’ve been late.. this page is totally great! i have a lot of questions now, and i cant wait for the next one.. keep up the good work! :3
Q: How many hours did you spent on this page?
Wow! Przepiękne! Nie mogę się doczekać następnej. ^^
Oh noes! Hati, you broke Iki/Skoll!!!!!!! D:
iki has grown so fast *tear*
but seriously, he looks older all of a sudden 0,_0 after hearing about his human buddeh
This is just fascinating!!!! My current favourite page!!
Short story told nicely and I love that effect of glass.
Wow…….I see why it took so long, beautiful page! ^.^
perfect shatter effect
Oooh, I was so hoping, that after that epic picture of Iki on the previous page, he would be like ‘Okayz, I understand. I’m definately sleeping. Goodnight, strange creepy red wolf’
Już wiem kto to Askr.
This is one amazing page. I love it.
Woow… Iki finally realizes, doesn`t he? I`m pretty sure he will know who he is from now on, but will probably very, very confused.
This page is amazing!!!
No comments 0_o
From the last 3 pages I definatly going to make a wallpaper for my PC! They’re awesome! (I had already a wallpaper from 3 pages)
This… is… just… beautiful…
Really Really really really really really really really cant wait to see what happens when he wakes.
This page is just awesome! Love the story, the colours, the way Iki’s markings are shaped like cracks…everything!
Iki’s mind has finally cracked and now the old memories of his lost friend are flooding through… That’s how I see it, love you guys ♥
And there be… dragons?
Beautifull page! Love the upper left panel of the wihite human spirit and Iki together!
….this.. is.. the most gorgeous.. page.. ever to be seen. * __ *
There are just no words for this. One picture holds a thousand word. Psh, thousand, this one holds infinite words.
Btw, Iki and Kaya in the bottom frame?
Oh wait, my mistake, it’s our loved mama with Raigho. Iki being sent as a shooting star.. D’aww.
Yeah your right…so then Skoll didnt create the barrier that made him forget his life as Skoll the dragons made him lose his memories,fasinating
Wow, this page is so STUNNING!
And dragons! I love dragons ^^ But these seem to be mean…
I can totally understand why this page took so long!
THIS IS SO AMAZING. when i first looked at it… it’s so detailed… the feeling in there… Just the most amazing page EVUR
And what happend with HAti?
the human figure is amazing…yy”
Iki…Is remembering what happened to Askr… I love dragons but those ones are just… But does this mean Askr is… and never to return?
yup, the barrier shattered.
HOLY FUCKING CRAP! I FUCKING LOVE THIS PAGE! AND SO THAT’S WHY THIS PAGE TOOK SO LONG, I THOUGHT IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE WORK YOU GUYS GOT IRL! <:D
Oh my goodness, that is AMAZING. I can’t stop staring at this page. The cracks, the glowing bits, the everything is wooooooow. Oh man, what is going to happen now?
Next panel: ‘Dude! This is the weirdest dream EVER!’
Haha XD Possibly. He seemed a little bit serious in one or two of the recent pages, but it’s likely that he might react somewhat like that, I think.
Is that the midgardsorm? The snake, Fenrirs brother? (The dragons)
It does beg the question… why did they go to the dragon’s lair in the first place? O.O
damn this is so awesome can’t wait to see the next page
I hope that Iki finaly knows his past …
and I wnna see more of the releation between the white human spirit and Iki /sköll
What is wrong with the next button!? I can’t turn the page!!! Nooo!
There are no other pages yet… >.>
i think the person was just saying it in a *sarcastic* manner lolz
Yes I was being sarcastic…But still…
I F***KING LOVE THIS PAGE! yes the barrier is well and tuely shattered, but why did Skoll and Askr fight the dragons? :O ooooooooh the suspence i cant wait for the next page, great work as usual guys xx
(btw i thought askr was female, or maybe its just the way the spirits are depicted in this page:L)
WOW!!!!! How did you DO IT? It’s not good. It’s the better page!
Wow… It’s so beautiful. 8D
the marks on iki’s face kinda look like the cracks on the background
AWESOME AS ALWAYS!!!
God this is… i can’t… This page… My brain… This explains EVERYTHING *dies*
Don’t die, or you might miss the rest of the story! I agree. The page is great,isn’t it?
2 down… *recalculating*
I just— I just cannot explain how amazing this looks, you two.
if you ever put this page up to sell or something, you would make hundreds, maybe even thousands off of this.
The cracks look so realistic, the images in the cracked areas can perfectly depict what happened between Iki and Askr, and it all leads back to when Raigho and Jera found him.
This is the most amazing page I have ever seen. I am making this my perma BG
This should be a background for your computer since its so awesomely made…:D?
No words for how amazing you two are.
…..I think Hati broke Iki’s brain… D:
Haha I think your right. xP
… agreed XD… poor Iki
one second… did iki had a brain? O.o
this page is so beautifully made. however, i also cant wait to see if his personality changes with the coming of his memories, and what his personality will be like.
Yeah, I feel the same way. I can’t wait to see how he develops!
¡Valió la pena esperar! ¡¡¡Está fenomenal, me encanta!!!
Wow this one beautiful page!! I can completely understand y u guys took long. It doesn’t look easy but the entire concept of it is absolutely splendid! It’s incredible. U guys did an amazing job. I can’t wait for the next page!
Welp, Hati done borked Iki. Show’s over, everyone, go home.
The show just began.
Woaw ! Is so beautiful ! The colors shades is very very beautiful !!
Very great comic. I got my mother to read it and she, no affence (She hates comics), But she ended up loving this one! Whoo keep it up!! I (And my mother) really enjoy it.
I wonder if Askr was crunchy and would have tasted better with ketchup. Hmm.
Haha! Lol XD
Mayonnaise. White spirits taste better with mayonnaise, since it is white, Miss Jessi. Details! It’s all about the details! You know;)
But that’s just too much white! Besides, I don’t like mayonnaise (don’t tell Paula Deen)!
What could possibly be better than food?
lolness Jessi always made me laugh lol and with the ostrich profile picture, your comments sound much funnier xD
WHOA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THATS SO EPIC!!!!!!
No! Askr! Please tell me he’s all right!!!… Or at least able to be reborn!
…………………………………………………… i don’t don’t understand… ? all i understand,.. is how jera and her mate find iki…
i don’t understand……… anything… in this page all i understand is how jera and her mate find iki…
The white wolf and human spirit fight a dragon that appears to be a white and a black spirit. They lose to the dragon. What’s not to understand?
is taht dragon thing like some kind of demon? and oh my god is askr gonna be able to reborn? and holy shit what is hati dooing there? and ohgodohgodohgod
Wow…this page was maybe the most time consuming page you have done so far but it is definately one of the best and most interesting ones this comic has so far. I really adore the way you have done the backgroundstory of Skoll and Askr and the style you have used for it. The way their bodys shine is just awesome and the effects are done damn brilliant at all. Especially the shattered spirit-marking of Iki and the shards the whole page has turned to. And even if this page is giving us a lot of answers, it creates even more questions, if you look at me. For example why Skoll and Askr have tried to fight the “dragon”-spirits here at all. And if Askr is lost now forever, just in another incarnation like Skoll or maybe kind of trapped until someone will come to the rescue. I guess that we will need to wait till the comic goes on, until we will know all this for sure. I also wonder what Hati did when Skoll started a new life….If he was the one who helped Skoll out there and saved him via reincarnation and who has send him just to Raigho and Jera….since he knew Raigho…as we can assume. Brilliant page. Really great story part here and awesome effects and drawings at all. The comic really is getting more interesting with every single page:D
Sooooo epic!!!!!!!!!!!! Mind blown!!!!!!!!!!!!
damn, is Askr fighting with the white dragon spirit?? why? i though they suppose to be in the same side lol… sorry sometimes im lame at understanding things xd
White spirits aren’t aligned with each other – they’re just the counterpart to the black spirit of their own species. The Sun isn’t necessarily friends with…calm? sloth? hunger? joy?
I am so curious to see what the dragon spirits represent, though, and why they’re fighting…It does seem like something may have gone wrong…
OMG DRAGONS, OMG IKI, OMG EVERYTING, OMG THIS PAGE…OMG OMG OMG only 3 letters that can possibly describe ths OMG page
Pictures DO say more than a thousand words!
Does anyone else see that his tattoo is starting to go everywhere.
Thank you for reminding us Sherlock -.-
Dude, don’t be rude, it’s childish and pathetic.
I know. It’s a shame that people think it’s fun to be rude to others for absolutely no reason at all.
Besides,nothing is obvious, because nothing is completely clear; others will overlook some things, that some others other than them might have noticed, if you understand what I’m trying to say,Uruk. XD
By the way Uruk, thank you for being so nice Nice comments make my day
I thought his name was Tigerperson, not Sherlock XD
I know, right? Isn’t it cool?
Sorry you received that rude reply; in my opinion, you didn’t deserve that at all. Don’t worry.
Poor Iki D: Oh well! epic page! and YAY FOR DRAGONS!!!
iki will now be forever known as skoll
This should totaly be made into a wallpaper!!
I AGAIN SECOND THIS!
It looks like the dragons are joined at the body. Cool!
To me it looks like Iki was pushed out of the sky by the dragon’s fire blast, maybe they wanted him to fall to midgard and lose his memory of being Skoll?
I totally didn’t get that until you mentioned it, but that looks like EXACTLY what happened. This is good. I wonder what’s happened in the years he had no idea who he was?
Uh, no offense, but isn’t midgard an Avengers reference? I didn’t know it would apply here.
Omg the human skoll is trapped in the dragons mouth iki is probley going to find him now.
this is a MASTERPIECE!!
Akreon and Tanathe come from another planet
Damn. I’d say that they lost that fight pretty badly.
What a Fantastic page, love the coloring, atmosphere, and dramatic effect this page presents! Only makes a person crave for more!
That was like magic for my eyes. Stunning. Beautiful
That is an incredible page! I totally understand the delay with it! I think that this is the best page that they’ve done so far, and it’s just getting better! Thank you Akreon and Tanathe! You guys did a fantastic job on this page and keep doing what you are doing!
Oh and I wonder why Skoll’s face marking is distorted as well? HATI YOU BROKE SKOLL!
But that was the point. Shatter the barrier that kept the memories of those events in check so Iki remembers that he was/is Skoll.
Ah. I see.
i love how iki/skol’s face markings mimic the shatter marks behind him
I keep returning here, everytime, for two days now, just to stare at this page and try to absorb all of it.
It’s just so amazing. *u*
I can’t even express how awesome this is! It’s so beautiful! You should really make prints!
This was a stunning addition to Off-White – beautifully done.
Zu los sahrot zii dovah, ahrk zu naak fin, mal mun!
Haha, nice work.
Fin loo hiu ziifron. Faal nahkriin se zii grohiik fen siiv ahrk krii fin fah daar, Dovah.
I love this language. So yes, I had to write this.
Mu vahrukiv ok nonvul togaat, nuz mu fent liiv faal lein wah dinok.
oh noes…now i get it. NICE!!!! We love it all!! I respect yous because look at that!
Another detail I *just* noticed while again marveling at the brilliant artwork — Hati’s posture almost looks to be that of pain (head back, legs sprawled, mouth agape) while his brother plummets to earth. It’s as if he’s emotionally struck with the very blow that physically sent Skoll to the mortal world. While both Skoll’s shattering barrier and the battle against the dragon(s) are certainly the most eye-catching and epic parts of this page, I think that one scene with Hati in the same sky as his falling brother is the most memorable to me. It really portrays the bond that must be shared between these brothers. It’s a bond that enabled Hati to search for Skoll and find him again. It’s a bond that motivated him to use his magic to meet with Skoll before they even meet face-to-face in reality. It’s also a bond that has caused him to watch Skoll all throughout this journey (thanks to his raven buddies), and administer a little dose of ‘tough love’ to help Skoll recover/reconnect with who he truly is. Moreso than anything, this complex yet compelling dynamic between Hati and Skoll is what keeps me hooked. In spite of his facade, the amount of concern and care that Hati has subtly displayed for Skoll through his actions is absolutely incredible.
Whoa, detailed, accurate, and awesome. Nice. And you are right, Hati cares, even if it would seem he didn’t.
oh my this is the must stunning and awe inspiring image of any sort i have ever seen throughout my entire existence, it is so beautifully done that i and literally speechless as to how much time and effort went into every detail of this fine and amazing work of art, i have no doubt that this is a masterpiece to be reckoned with throughout our modern times.
And of course just to ruin all the previous description of what i think of this page, i cant wait until the next one, this is one hell of a true story and i hope to the heavens that when it is done it will be printed as an actual book/graphic novel.
Wow. This explains a lot and raises more questions at the same time.
We now know HOW the Blue Human Spirit died, but not why. We also know for sure that much of this trouble was caused by Iki’s prior life.
Also, this page is fantastic. It looks beautiful, emotional and tragic all at once.
Why so many questions and so many whys and hows??? Just wait till the pages come out. Only the artists themselves know the answers, sheesh ppl.
i don’t think they are asking the questions about the comic, rather they are stating what we are looking forward to finding out, it pays to read the context more
I wish people would think outside of the box some more,too.
Wonderful page! And LOL, dragon spirits?
I suppose this partially explains what Skoll has been doing for the past three hundreds years and why he “abandoned” his duty. For some reason fighting was more important than herding the sun. I just wonder if Skoll and Askr’s battle with the double dragons (heh) was a culmination that took three hundred years or if the fight happened an instant. Either way both white spirits were pretty badly curb-stomped. x_x
This was definitely worth the wait. Also, this epic page just begs to be made into a high resolution wallpaper at some point.
I just noticed that in the lower part of the page, when Skoll was hit by the dragon spirits`fire, and he stopped glowing, he looks more like a pup. So I am assuming that he was reborn, and than Raigho and Jera found him? That would explain a lot…
http://off-white.eu/comic/page-199 check the last panel and next page. Hope it helps.
What truly got to me is Ikis heartbroken expression. He probably blames himself for the death of his best friend…
I do wonder, if something happened when the two dragon spirits tried to split into two beings, and it made them conjoined. What if, because of that, made the dragon spirits go mad or something. I also wonder if this dragon is supposed to represent Nidhög, the dragon that gnawed on Yggdrassils roots.
When i went to this page…i was like O.O
Nothing more to say,just…
E P I C
jesus…i got shivers…omg this is so awesome!!! im shocked atm…
See what you did Hati?!?? Better clean up dat glass when it shatters. Love this page!!!
I am so impressed at how far this comic has come! Your talent has increased as you’ve gone on and this page just leaves me….speechless!! Thank you for such an amazing comic!!
Poor Skoll.. he went through so much.
Question is… why didn’t the white human spirit return? Is it because it was eaten by the dragon?
Most likely, I’m guessing. But who knows?
I CALL FOR DESKTOP BACKGROUND!!
The cracks of light in Iki’s face almost looks like tears
I just LOVE this page … it’s so … man, I cannot find words … Im fearing I can die for the amazement *stares at Iki’s expression with heart-shaped eyes* *w*
Whoa….THAT IS FRIKKIN AMAZING!!!!
how do u post here?
You just did, love.
So they are the ones who screwed over the humans, lol.
The dragons, I mean.
Oh god that is so sad );
Holy Schnikies! How the heck do you do these pages?!
Wow, just so amazing!!! good work!!
Holy… Crap… Shit just got serious… O.o
Best page yet, I think we can all agree.
What I’m wondering is how he is going to act when he ‘wakes’ up and tells the others about all this.
Raigho knows, I’m sure when Iki mentions it, Raigho will sigh or something, and tell a long story, then agree, shutting up Jera from yelling at Iki for thinking such things exist. XD
ummm…………………What just happened!?
*Crunch crunch crunch* Mmmm, yummy.
That’s what happened.
Apparently the black dragon spirit ate the white human spirit…ew. And Iki/Skoll was there, got his ass whooped-sorry, being honest-and came back downt o earth in shooting star form as a young pup with no memory of what happened in spirit land
The real question is WHY were they fighting the dragons?! If the human and wolf are partners. Where was the dragons “other half” spirit?
As you can see the dragon has his or her soul in the same body. Some persons say that maybe that dragon was trying to survive to extincion or something like that x)
To make glowly blue and red armour from its hide and bones. You have to admit, if you saw one, it would cross your mind.
Askr workin’ that Smithing skill, eh?
I bet a white and black dragon soul would be used to unlock some super crazy powerful shouts. Askr and Skoll are just achievement and completion whores and got what was coming to them for their crime of OCD.
Take THAT Norse Mythology theorists!!
I’ll raise that bet and say Skoll is a mere familiar. Recyclable, easily killed, slightly transparent, you know?
Based on the song Seven was singing on her flashback is the unicorn spirit
The Black Dragon Spirit and the White Dragon Spirit seem to be conjoined into one body, so I don’t think they are two seperate beings like the others (Hati and Iki for example).
Omg… The Black Spirit Dragon Just Eat The White Spirit Human!!! Why?? How Will They Save Him Now? And Iki Have Very Luck To Scape From That! Omg.. Poor Pup… I Ask Why The Spirit’s Dragon’s Did That??
Um… maybe the dragon (or dragons) regergitated Askr…? (Now thats gross). And I also feel for Iki. poor pup, but that could also explain the “mentally incapability.” X3
what is hati doing?
Howling for the loss of his brother perhaps?
I knew there was going to be dragons!
*thinks for all the possibilities* Maybe the dragons were stuck. But “mentally incapable”, they couldnt think about much. Maybe Askr and Skoll tried to help them, but instead they attacked back?
Again and again…awesome job girls !!! Now other question rises: where is the unicorn spirit to help ? According to the song shown on the page 107 the unicorn is the wyvern’s pair… (Which is sometimes the same of a drake, but originally a drake is a kind of a “lesser dragon” with four members and no wings, known in brazilian portuguese and in latin as Draco, while the wyvern is a dragon with two wings and two hind legs
Wow, now I know that’s mythical creatures are on the comic I’ve just imagine lindworm spirits, drake spirits, eastern-dragon spirits, gryphon spirits, calygreyhound spirits, enfield spirtis, musimon spirits, chimera spirits, sea-serpent spirits, phoenix spirits, opinicus spirits, dragon spirits, pegasus spirits, alicorn spirits, warg spirits, manticore spirits, keythong spirits, hippogryph spirits, dragon-turtle spirits, elemental spirits maybe… THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS FOR THE BEST COMIC EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Woah, never thought of that way before…
Haha XD That’d be funny
lol, that’s kind hard, because cheeseburgers don’t have soul to have a spirit.
I don’t think he was being serious, you know XD
lol I just want to point out that an “alicorn” is a unicorns horn, so a unicorns-horn spirit? xD
You’re right, but today the terminology “alicorn” gained a new meaning that is a horned-pegasus or a winged-unicorn.
What’s Hati doing anyway??
Now, that I look at it, it looks like Iki and Askr were going against what was decreed long ago. I mean, even Hati said that they were in a 300 year war, so…
So this battle lasted centuries?.. Skoll was shot at and reincarnated into a shooting star in which Iki was born. And perhaps the two dragon spirits joined when one of the the dragon spirits were killed to avoid extinction, since to be more realistic on how dragons are so rare that most think they’re fables because apperently now there’s only one? (for the story of course) X) Or maybe the dragon is the overlord of the spirits and wanted to make some stupid decision and the wolf and human spirit opposed? And Hati could just be there howling to cast a spell so Skoll and Askr could be there?.. Or as someone else said, the dragon could be confused like a raging Gyarados and Skoll and Askr are trying to calm/weaken the dragon so it will snap out of it’s rage?.. The possibilities are endless, so I’m just going to wait for the next page. :3
Wow,your idea is really well thought-out! Great thinking.
Thank you. ^-^
Your right, there are MANY possiblities to this..waiting stinks but for this awesome comic it is well worth it.
Oh, and beautiful page! <3 I like how in between the scenes you added what appeared to be cracked glass to demonstrate how the thick wall in Skoll's memory has finally shattered.
Wheres the black human spirit? And didn’t Iki fall from the sky during an endless snowstorm? In the bottom it shows Jera and Raigho with a clear sky, and without lil Isa… At first glance i thought the pair was Raigho and Hati…. maybe?
In the page where Raigho is telling Othala were they found Iki, Isa apperas in Jera’s Mouth and your right, Iki appeared during a snowstorm…. But maybe when they saw the star, The snowstorm started because of the fall of the white spirit, and few days next, Raigho and Jera found Iki…. Well that’s my opinion…
And the Black Human Spirit, maybe he didn’t noticed the battle…..
do you girls Actually know how
far-famed this comic is???
this is so freaking amazing!!!!!!!!
And… What the fuck are doing the spirit’s black of wolf and human!!!??? I think that they should help!
I don’t know, it looks like Hati is sorta just chillin’ out. Howling to his favorite beat maybe?
That was TOTALLY worth the wait… But now I have a new itch… The NEXT page. -twitch- I think I’m addicted to Off-White. Who’s with me?
HELL YEAH! Addicted to Off-White is the best thing of my life
Yeah, known this comic a week…and I read it ALL in one night ‘cuz I couldn’t stop reading! So totally addicted. At least I’m not alone lol
SUCH A DETAIL! OMG! *dies*
I wanna see the next one! *dies again*
This only counts as one.
Amazing! I love how the cracked glass of his memories matches the cracking of the light in his face. This is a very beautiful and detailed page. I can’t wait for more!
its a dragon!!!!! yay!!!
Great detail, wonder whats going to happen next, can’t wait
hermoso y asombroso!!
quien es el humano y quienes son esos dragones? e.e
aaa!!! ya quiero que salga el otro capitulo!!!
son los otros spirituos… Los dos de los dragones, y el bueno de el humano
I wonder what Iki is going to be like after he ‘wakes up’. Can he even go back to living normally after he has remembered all of this? Such a great story!
He… broke… IKI!!!! WHY YOU—–!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????
And thats why he was crying Jera and Raihgo found him D; all the sad face </3
oh yeah awwwww :((
I prob missed this somewhere…but why couldnt the human white spirit be reborn?
I think because the white human spirit is stuck inside the dragons body(:
Wow,you told Luna-winter nicely without being all like ‘OMG you made a mistake!’ That’s really nice of you for not being like that.
wow so iki an the human spirit were best buds an one day the light an dark dragons caught them cause maybe they werent being serious or something they battled the dragons battled with such force an sent iki to earth as a form wolf being.. while the red dragon ate the human spirit? if i have got that right..dam poor iki great graphics as always =) waits to see next one =)
also i have noticed that the white markings on iki are getting bigger going down further is he soon going to turn back to his godly like form like his brother was a couple pages back woth al the remembering he is been having??
He might. Or get totally freaked out and return to his own world. We’ll just have to see…Suspenseful ain’t Doc? lol
Your best page yet!
………….(I am completely speechless)
Ok, I know this is TOTALLY off topic, but I live your profile picture ^^ Kiba rocks lol
*love. Opps lol
wow im amazed this page is like awesome
Flip I get the story now… :/ But the question is…Why did this happen? If im not mistaken, the shattered glass section behind Iki of his brother if you look closely there are sets of eyes behind the black wolf (ive literally hsd a name blank so i cant remember), so either he’s mouring his brother OR he tried to kill the human spirit and his brother the eyes behind him are like the dragons? Im probably wrong i just like speculating. xD
It doesn’t matter if you’re wrong, since everyone gets things wrong. We’re only human. The black wolf you are speaking of is called Hati.
I think your speculation is very interesting!
you are right there is a pair of eyes behind hati.but i believe that hati is summoning his brother to defeat the dragons,since after that panel it shows askr and skoll/iki going after the dragons
idk its just my opinion,who knows,we’ll have to wait till the next page
I tried to say something… I failed.
I even got goosebumps
Whoa. That’s serious crap.
Iki looks like the memories are bringing back a lot of pain and sadness. Poor dear…
How come the sky isnt stormy like it was when Jera and Raigho found him?
aww… good question. idk. maybe they will fix it? either way, this is the BEST page by far. =D off-white=<3
Because he cleared the sky remember?
He cleared the sky when he was already in earth. Raigho said that he looked up and cleared the sky after they found him.
Awww… I like dragons. Why must they eat people? Why I ask you?
i know… i hope that there will be good dragons in this comic =)
Dragons eat this soul, because white soul of human is a virgin.
Uh…Don’t want to know how you figure tht…WTF. o.0
Aww little Iki is so cute. ^.^ <3
I think I’ve misssed something, but who is Askr??
He is the white human spirit (:
This is so beautiful…
Askr is actually female.
She’s the white human spirit :3 Here’s akreons concept of the human spirits: http://off-white-comic.deviantart.com/gallery/24872457#/d2okeoi
Human good spirit. There’s an old reference sheet somewhere to them somewhere on deviantart.
Oh wow! This is a stunning page! I love this one ^^ Go on Iki, go find Askr To be honest I can’t wait till this comic finishes, just so they will (might xD) get it published I sooo wanna buy this if they do!
Awww, i dont want the comic to finish. ): Then we would have nothing to joy, spazz, and talk about. I want it to continue as long as it can, spreading it’s awesomeness and becoming more and more popular. :3
OH GOD. OH GOD. OH GOD! <3
This is the most beautiful page
After staring at Iki’s cracked up face for the better part of several days I’m starting to wonder if they’ll stay like that, return to normal, or crack along his body until he glows awesomely. I don’t know what for or why, but I’m highly curious about it.
…or I probably just want to see Iki/Skoll glow spectacularly because the glow effects in this specific page are awesome.
I could practicly just see the next page like the iki right here is ‘shedding’ the form he’s currently in for his full white spirit form and the more he’s remebers the bigger the cracks.
…cousre it might come up a bit diffrent than my reality but still.
oh my gosh. This is a BEAUTIFUL PAGE!!!
@ChewaShoe I want to see that! Awesome Iki/Skoll glowiness for the win!
By the way. Finally, not only red! THE BLUE SHALL AWAKEN AND BRIGHTEN OUR PAGES!
…to be the most interesting. How is Iki going to react? “Ohai, bro. Remember you now. So how’s all been in the spirity spirit world?” Will Iki’s personality change totally within all the new memories? *w*
I hope Iki’s personality won’t change 3:
I hope it does, right now he’s like a child with amnesia, and it makes me sad.
Then the story will get nowhere.
Awwww The Poor Thing. I hope He will be alright… =(
Lol question in norse mythology do they believe in reincarnation? If so what if seven was the reincarnate of the human spirit.
OMG! By far, my fav page os far. I love the way the markings on Iki’s face contrast with the cracked glass, and how these memories suddenly come flooding back in bits and pieces.
I think Iki will be more confused than ever now…or maybe things will start to make more sense to him.
Omg. This must be my new wallpaper. <3
I love how this page is sectioned out as broken glass; like his current in-denial ‘reality’ has just been shattered. 8l ♥
holy crap what a twist gg
Ohhhhh snap! Can’t wait for next page!
He was reborn
The WHITE spirit is BLUE and the BLACK spirit is RED?
No…they’re white and black. The blue and red colors are just…accents colors for their corresponding markings, spells and auras. Makes them stand out more.
Just think about it. How would a totally white something look in a snowy place? Or a full-black spirit in the darkness, in the night? I think some people wouldnt like the white and black animal-shaped something.. XD
They are better with blue and red lights and others.
You ever heard of stylization?
Awww, I thought the white spirit was a girl. :c
Well still and epical page. Iki is in a traumatic state. XD
the white spirit in this page is just the out line of a human it doesnt have and hair or anything so i assume its genderless for now :3
there is a pic of the black and the white human spirits in the gallery, so i think it’s female,
why does it matter.
Great Hati… Now, you have to clean up the glass!!!
*sigh* where’s dragonborn when you need him, lol jk
Or.. That dragon spirit duo could be Fenrir! The creator of the white spirit and the black spirits, and is also referred to as their god. e.g “For Fenrir’s sake, Jera!” Around the beginning of the whole series.
I can’t wait for the next page. >.<
Lets hope Skoll (Iki) doesn’t screw up again
You broke his face!
…Other than that, great job!
I think that broken face IS great job
I hope Iki gets a personality change…well more like his old “badass” personality arises. He will still keep his “childish” behavior in the real world as a disguise, but in reality he is awaken. :3 there everyone will be happy.
now Hati, who’s gonna glue all those glass pieces together again?
Dude! Hurry up with the next page already I keep checking this thing like every 5 minutes. I’m freaking out. You should upload a page soon before I break my computer trying to look for the next page.
Then get off the computer and play outside or something. I hate to break it to you, but new pages take a long time to create. So please be patient, as we are all waiting. ^_^
…Uh, guys, I think he’s being sarcastic….but if you’re not then: get a life, loser!!!!!!
I kinda wish you would break your computer. Or at least the keyboard.
Sheesh, relax! I’d like to see you do a page like this within a day or two! They’ll making it, believe me. It takes a while to do this because they try to make it as good as they can. Just be patient. We are all anxious for the next page.
I’m done sugar coating my words, so:
I think everyone is anxious for the next page. It’s inevitable that someone will voice that excitement. I suggest you not be so rude. It’s just a suggestion, though. I just feel like there are other things that are actually worth doing.
You’ll have to wait a few days;comic pages of this quality will take a very long time to make, in most cases. Sorry!
STFU and leave if you can’t wait you impatient twit!
No sugar coating for you. >:U
I’ve noticed that all the spirits in this comic ( hati and skoll ) are male, is it because the spirits themselves were male in the legend?
check this page out
i don’t really understand, what is the little story behind this page?
my English is a disaster, I hope you can understand me …
You know what I think? for me dragons spirit are tremendously strong, perhaps they have a tyrannical and ruthless attitude, they are more powerful than others animal spirits (mythology, magic, everything matches) and is difficult to know which leads two white spirits to face them …
the Dragons didn’t hesitate to eat human white spirit and didn’t hesitate to attack Skoll, hati howling over there … I think he also wants to fight the dragons but knows his limitations and knows that he, alone, is unable to do so ….
Hati needs someone, needs Skoll, why? maybe he want higher power, perhaps to awaken a higher being, Fenrir, maybe someone from his bearing is able to beat these dragons …
Your english isn’t that bad. I understood and I think you may have it right ^^
Skoll and Askr went to fight the dragons for some reason but they were both killed and I’m not sure if Askr was reborn or not, but we KNOW Soll was, and Hati…In response to “Lua cant speak english”, Hati needs Skoll to go back to his duties so he can maybe buy time for the world that seems to be out of balance and crumbling.
mi ingles es un desastre, espero que puedas entenderme…
para mi los dragones son espiritus tremendamente fuertes, quizas debido a eso tengan una actitud tiranica o despiadada, son mas poderosos que mushos otros espiritus animales (mitologia, magia, todo concuerda) y es dificil saber que lleva a dos espiritus blancos querer enfrentarlos…
Los dragones no vacilaron al comer al espiritu blanco humano y no dudaron en atacar ambos al Skoll, hati pulula por alli aullando… yo creo que el tambien quiere combatir a los dragones pero conoce sus limitaciones y sabe que solo es incapaz de hacerlo….
Necita de alguien, necesita de Skoll, ¿por que? quizas para obtener un poder mayor, quizas para despertar a un ser superior, Fenrir, quizas alguien de su porte sea capaz de vencer a esos dragones…
No creeo que Hati haya presenciado el enfrentamiento entre Sköll, Askr y los demás espíritus.
Él le decía anteriormente que ésos sólo eran “rumores”. Él no sabía si eran verdad o no.
Creeo que sólo aparece allí porque Sköll recuerda a Hati.
Oh man When is the Next page coming out! I cant wait to see it! It has to be sometime tonight or tomorrow!!! I love off -White!!
I agree with BlueStreamWarrior. If you can’t wait, then get your non-waitin’ scrony A$$ off the site then.
I have been fallow this comic for sometime & it’s awesome,
good things come for doe’s who wait!
T.T I want more!! D:
oh my his barrier is breaking i love the cracks in the pictures and all the glow in the dark like colors that is some amazing work! keep it up i can’t wait to see more!
I love this comic.
KIDS!! WHERE’S THE NEW PAGE??? Y U NO POST??!!
In a darkroom being processed. You have to have special care and patience in visual work of this comic’s caliber.
It shall forever be delayed just to piss you impatient people off. ^^
Haha That made me chuckle! XD
Really? First off they are NOT kids, second off I highly doubt the equivalent of a five year old child poking you in the shins every time an update is not imediate would make them want to produce one faster : ).
Patience, young grasshopper. They took a bit of extra time with this one because it has so much detail and work, so they deserve a bit of a break between pages! Calm your raging hormones chica. It’ll get here when it gets here.
ركدي شوي =_=
Epic. Can’t wait for more!
Oh man can’t wait to see what’s next!!! Best comic ever
I cannot come close to guessing Hati’s reaction to this. So eager to see what’s next. :v
Heh. Probably a simple “Finally. Let’s get moving.”
AHH! It cannot end now! I just started this, and now I can’t stop reading. ; ;
When is the next page going to be out? I’m really wondering when because it has been almost a week I think.
uh..it’ll be out when it’s out and nagging them wont help I’m sure they KNOW it’s been almost a week : )
Gah!!! The suspense of waiting!!! XD cant wait! haha
This comic neer gets old, cant wait for more! the suspense gah!
Everyone was so, used to see 2 updates per week, then 1 update per week, and now its like one per 2 weeks, so who wouldn’t be desperate?…I know they have their reasons but, gahhh suspense!, gotta hate those cliffhangers…v.v…
BTW, LOVE THIS COMIC X3!
Do you realize how long it takes for them to make these pages?! Be a little more appreciative next time :/
waiting for udates takes longer and longer
I don’t care when the new page comes out, but they really need to update when they say they are going to update. If it takes you 2 weeks to complete a page, fine, then just say that updates are every two weeks now. What I don’t like is that we’re still being told we’ll have an update every week and that is rarely happening now.
Yeah, I like the story, but I got to agree with ya
Finally.. somebody who gets it..
You should realize that this takes time to do, alongside what they are working on as a day job. People like you piss me off because you’re so damn impatient. You need to learn to calm down and take a break from the internet if you cannot wait. Pages like this are worth the wait. Plus it only take a few seconds to check for a new page. I can’t believe people are being morons about them not updating frequently.
Like I said in my first sentence. I don’t care when the new page comes out. They could update every month, once a year. It doesn’t matter. I will wait. What I do not like is being told there will be a new page once a week, yet there rarely is. I would rather the authors change the update to twice a week just for consistency. I’m not being impatient. I’ll keep checking the site every day for a new page.(and I’m guessing I’ll get banned from commenting for this too huh?).
I do agree with you on the updating, I wait til every weekend looking for a new page but there doesn’t seem to be =/. I understand completely that they need more time to complete beautiful pages such as the one above, but the disapointment can be a bit unbearable. GIRLS! If you need more time between pages just say so and your loyal fans will understand! We love yooou <3 :3.
I had the same face as iki when I saw this page. Wonderful work as always!
YOUR FACE TURNED BLUE AND CRACKED UP?!?!?! i think you might need a docter O_O
I REALLY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COMIC¡¡¡¡¡ *O*
I REALLY LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COMIC¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ IS THE BEST COMIC EVER¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ *O* (L)
Sheesh, there seems to be a war going on in the comics. And I admit I agree with one of them… girls, please at least let us know if there won’t be a comic page and around what time there will be. I don’t care how long I have to wait, I just want to stop going here every weekend and not seeing any new pages or updates. At least tell us there won’t be a page this week or something. I’m not being impatient or anything… in fact I don’t care how long it takes for a new page. I just want to know about the creators’ progress. Like, even a simple, “No page this week!” would do.
I agree. I can wait any time; but would be more easy for all than she tell us one delay or no page.
With their hectic lives and schedules I don’t think that even they know when the next page will be out, lol. What would be cool is maybe a progress bar. Whether it be in percentages or stages such as “Sketched, Inked/Lined, Flats, Shading, Background”, etc. The only commenters I get absolutely annoyed with are those who demand a page like they’re entitled to one, as if they paid for it.
Very much so… a progress bar would be a fantastic idea.
He looks so grown up in this scene. The memories brought back who he was maybe, which was more mature? He really has an old soul, doesn’t he?
Yes, he is an old soul. And yeah, those memories probably grew him up really fast. I’m thinking there will be a change of character. Like he’ll be more mature and not so…idk, clutzy I guess lol
I just recently started reading this comic…and it is awesome. My friend told me about it and when I was able to read it…well it was a school night….and I got yelled at for staying up late 2 read it…lol
Awsome! I love this page! Excelent job! Sooooo worth the wait!
This in an awesome comics page, I can see why it took so long, but it was so worth the wait.
Anyways, my prediction is that he get jolted out of the spirit world and the rest og the pack with be confused. ( although they will be confused anyways…)
Omagad!New page!And it”s fahking amazing ;u; We’ve waited.This is just…I can’t describe…JDNFJSNVGJFSBGVJSFN!!Oh,and,notice they can’t get on the computer to update it with their busy lives.I don’t care if they say they’ll do it twice a week when it’s really one every 2 weeks!Just be happy they update the pages,instead of nagging on page problems.This was VERY worth waiting. <3
*-* Well worth the wait! This is just amazing!
It’s so amazing! You did a very goog job. I like those dragons although I don’t understand them
The dragons are-i’m guessing-the black and white souls of the dragons, liek every species has one. Idk if there ARE dragons in this but thats my best guess. I’m guessing Iki, and the human white spirit were trying to stop them from fighting…but it’s only a guess.
What I don’t get is why both the white and black spirit dragons seem to be connected to one another…. Wicked page and probably my new favorite.
When I first saw this, I thought the dragons were fighting…but it looks as if they are fused to one body. Wonder how THAT happened.
New page new page new page new page new page new page new page new pa-
Wow I’m so obsessed with this comic.
BUT IT’S SO GOOD
But what is Hati doing in the sky over there to the left?
Uh, I’m not sure. Maybe he was coming to help and realized he was to late? It doesn’t seem like it but Hati does care….maybe he felt the blow that sent Iki/Skoll to earth. As different as they are they are connected, so they might feel each others physical pain. Maybe.
I like maybe Hati is howling because he could have possibly warned Skoll about being with the white human spirit and told him only bad would come of it but then he could have possibly left Hati to be with the white human spirit anyway and maybe he’s howling as a last attempt to warn Skoll of the danger he’s getting into. Or maybe he’s morning the loss of his brother as he fell from the sky at the bottom. Or maybe he’s howling so that Skoll will hear him and return… -shrug- I dunno.
I think it was because Hati was doing the whole ‘chasing the moon’ thing. I could be wrong, but that’s what i think since he is the moon herder.
holy cow! not a word but sooo much story telling!!! this is absolutely astounding!! i love it! gah!! this i what happens when art majors read comics lol
omigosh!!! >.< IKI?!?! what's wrong with your face?! D:
Wow…this is breathtaking <3
Seto Abridged Kaiba: What’s wrong with his face?! Guys, are you seeing this? What’s wrong with his face?!
Hati: I fail to see the problem.
Seto: WHAT’S WRONG WITH EVERYONE’S FACE?!
Thats the mark the white spirits of the wolves has. Hati has one too but its different and it’s red instead of blue. The cracking on Iki/Skolls face represents the memory barrier breaking down. He’s remembering what happened when the human white spirit disappeared.
I know, I was making a reference to Yugioh Abridged when Noah’s face went all freaky. But thanks. =)
Oh. Its been a long time since I saw yugioh and I don’t think I’ve seen any abridged yugioh so I didn’t understand your reference lol. Thanks for clearing that up lol.
COME ON KIDS!!! ARE YOU GIRLS GONNA BE LATE ALL THE TIME ME SAD :c
Be patient. I understand it’s a little annoying that they haven’t updated us, telling us that the page is going to be late for various reasons. But the longer the page will be the better it’s going to be, so be a little patient. They do have lives unlike us internet habitants. =P
Is anyone else starting to think that the artists are putting TOO much detail into the pages? It takes them forever to finish them… and what do they get in return? People clamoring that they need to hurry up and finish the next one.
Less detail = more pages = win-win
Not only do the artists spend less time on the comic, but the fans can also enjoy weekly updates.
But this is a beautiful comic, and I am willing to wait as long as it takes.
Artists take pride in their work, and forcing them to starve themselves of the detail and life that they want to give their pages would be a pretty cruel thing to ask. Besides, they plan on publishing and selling this comic when it’s done. Why sacrifice market-worthy quality for impatient fans?
Off White is such a well loved comic not just for its plotline, but for the brilliant life that each page has. It’s a breathtaker and I like it that way.
I wasn’t FORCING them to do anything. It’s their comic. They may do as they please. I was making a suggestion.
Of course, I do not think that a different opinion is necessarily a wrong one.
You think the current balance between quantity and quality is fine, and that is your opinion. I made the suggestion that perhaps the artists may like to tweak that. Ultimately, it is THEIR choice whether to listen to the fans or ignore them.
its not too much detail its QUALITY!
I believe they should keep doing what they’re doing now. After all, most of us here have the patience in waiting for the next beautiful page to be released. And we also understand how busy they are in person.
Besides, I’m sure that when this series is released into a book format, you would want the pages to look like a professional comic.
And I’m sure when they do transfer it into another format, they would have the feeling to want to edit the photos to look their best, which would cost more of their time in the future.
So getting it done now than then would be better for all of us, we get better graphics, and it saves their time in the future, plus they usually do release pages on a weekly bases, but you can tell after this page, it will be a true wind breaker. That we finally get to see Iki being smart/serious, and remembering things, and Jera’s soon to be gaping mouth. So I’m sure this one took a little more thought and effort since it’s release hasn’t been made this week yet.
LOL. I want to see Jera’s face when they wake up and his face is all glowly and he’s serious and smart and beating them at everything lol. That would be SO funny. You make very good points.
Sorry but for me it’s always quality over quantity ;P
We think the comics are absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. Who cares if it takes them a while to finish each page? You should be happy that they even take the time to make this series as fantastic as it is. If you cannot be patient, you should probably just stop reading these comics altogether and move onto a different series :
If you read the last line of their post they said that they’re willing to wait. Why is it that when anyone posts a pondering on the waiting time that people automatically assume that they’re crabbing about the lack of a new page?
I don’t care how long it takes to make a page, I’m just bothered that some of us here don’t seem to fully read a post and seem to assume any post that mentions the waiting time as a person who’s “impatient for a page”.
If anything it would be that lack of full comprehension that would chase people away because they would be hesitant to post something for fear of being reprimanded just for speaking their mind or “wondering out loud” in their text. :/ What’s the point of reading a free web comic if you can’t share your thoughts about aspects of it with other people that read it?
Sort of pointless if you ask me.
Your right. Some us are impatient, I agree, but others are speculating about what might happen. The suspense is awesome. If you get my meaning, that is lol. Speaking our mind is fine, but if you ARE an impatient soul, I would suggest finding something else to occupy your time and come back in a few days to see if the next page is out.
Being a high school senior who’s social issue project has to be done in one semester I do have a lot of stuff to do and little free time.
It just saddens me that every time I come here during some of my free time all I see are people either nagging for a page…or nagging at the people that want a page to shut their mouths and go away. Not a very pleasant atmosphere in my opinion.
The pages are wonderful and the people speculating about stuff is awesome. I just wish that both sides would refrain from trying to ‘justify’ their means in regards to page updates > > No one wants to see “NEW PAGE NAOW PLZ!1!!!” or even get caught reading a million “it takes an incredibly long time to master art so therefore pages may take a while, just be patient or go somewhere else”. It’s snappish on both sides and is just flat out annoying. XD
Oh look, I’m gonna be one of the few sane people. My dear, an artist myself I know the detail is actually a perspective of opinion. I understand what you’re saying, but looking at some of the speed paints, it really doesn’t take them that long and isn’t that hard most the time. Shattering glass is a different story however. Look at it this way, the longer the wait, the better the page.
There’s also the possibility of writers block. Anyone who’s wrote a story or done a roleplay knows this feeling.
Besides, I myself rather have a longer wait than have something that looks like crap.
Thank you for your sanity, and you make valid points, you never know what’s going on in the aritists lives, they may have had a family tradegy. I hope not, but it may have happened. Family is more important than a comic, and I’m sure if that is the case, than when they do get the comic out it will be great and I’m sure none of us will ask for an apology for keeping us waiting because that would be highly rude.
I hope you realize that last sentence you said didn’t make it okay to say everything that you just said. You just go ahead and do an undetailed comic and put it out there for the world to see and publish it too, and TRY to feel good about yourself knowing you did a half-ass job. I think i made my point
Wow! I know I’ve drawn many hypothesis to predict the next page, but now I’m sure that the cracking on his face will mean that on the next page(s), he will look like Skoll’s true form.
I can’t believe I just now thought of that. X)
Believe me your not the only one XD
Your right WolfyProwler, he will probably be in his true form, which will probably look totally awesome and may be way the next page is taking time. Seeing Skoll’s true form after it’s been hidden so many years will probably be glorious and breathtaking. The next page, will quite simply be amazing, no matter what happens.
Thank you, ShadowWolf. And we were right! It took so long because they were making 2 pages as one was not enough for the fans’ comic hunger. I too anticipated to see what the first words Skoll would say, those two next pages are awesome.
And I just can’t wait to see how Jera and Isa will treat him. ^-^
Your welcome. And yes the next two pages are quite simply awesome. ^^ Now we’re all glad we waited lol
Wow @facebook-100000562813721:disqus your a idiot. I don’t care how long it takes. This page is BREATHTAKING. This has always been on the top list of comics. Most comics are just eh with the graphics but obviously these too are willing to spend their energy and time to make their comics brilliant and beautiful and that is what I love most. If you want a shitty comic with quickly uploaded pages please go elsewhere. You’ll never find that here. Most comic even how shitty don’t even upload that often. So take your unappreciative, critical, unpatient butt elsewhere.
First of all. Typos.. Wow,*You’re An* These two*Impatient*
Secondly. That was uncalled for and so rude. There’s seriously no need for that. Thirdly. If Liza Leonova is such an idiot, why haven’t I seen any typos in her sentences? -Also, if this was meant for Liza to read- You could have just replied to her instead of just randomly stating she’s an idiot. It was so pointless.Lastly.. Your foul criticism towards Liza is all over a comic?
Not that I’m telling you straight- but isn’t that a bit childish?
Not to mention that you accused her of criticizing the artists.
She was simply suggesting something- That’s a new story, and I highly doubt the artists would change anything because one person stated their opinion.It would’ve been better if you had just kept quiet.
(sorry for that long rant)For the Artists of this comic: I love it, along with all your other art pieces. Keep up the great art work~ <3
so rude?… wow… Liza was being rude not So_quest… and u need to realize Liza was criticizing the artists and insulting some of the commentators who ask for them to hurry up and she made it sound like they were getting aggravated but ive only seen a couple of people get mad over it and everyone else just says stuff like “i cant wait for the next page!”
I don’t think Liza was being rude at all. I saw her post as being more sympathetic than anything.
“Is anyone else starting to think that the artists are putting TOO much
detail into the pages? It takes them forever to finish them… and what
do they get in return? People clamoring that they need to hurry up and
finish the next one.”
Translation: The artists put their heart and souls into each page and all they get in return are people shouting YOU ARE LATE AGAIN or MAKE THEM FASTER!!!
That isn’t rude. That’s the truth. >_>. I do see more comments saying “Can’t wait!” than “OMG DO THEM FASTER”, but those people are still there on every page, maybe not complaining per se, but definitely voicing the opinion that the updates are too slow.
The last time I checked this comic was almost a year ago. There were sixteen new pages. By webcomic standards, that’s a very slow update – if they were working on some epic graphic novel to be published, that still might be too slow. Luckily for the artists of this awesome comic, they aren’t getting paid to do this, so they don’t have a boss breathing down their necks. There are plenty of high quality art-wise web comics that update weekly, or biweekly. Though granted, those comics may very well be that person’s job.
Artists in the working field usually need to learn shortcuts and quick ways to do things because there are DEADLINES to meet. That’s one of the reasons most animated cartoons feature characters that only have four fingers. Sacrifices in quality often need to be made.
It’s completely fine for an artist to want to take as much time as possible on their finished artwork, but when people are expecting new material on a regular basis, Liza’s suggestion doesn’t come off as rude so much as practical.
But, then again, who knows? The artists aren’t making a salary off of this website, at least not one you can live off. They likely have full time jobs. I know I scarcely have time to doodle anymore, let alone do a masterpiece, due to the need to make money and not starve to death.
Insulting everyone who has a different opinion than yours gets you nowhere to boot. Liza didn’t say “OH MAN YOU GUYS ARE SO SLOW YOU NEED TO CUT CORNERS AND PRODUCE 4000 LBS OF CRAP!”, she said, “I think that if you found ways to finish your pages faster with minimal sacrifice to quality, your fans would be happier!”
That’s not a rude suggestion at all. Though, as I said, these artists may very well have full time jobs and a busy life, so in the end we should just be patient and try not to rip each other’s throats out just because we don’t agree with what someone else said.
This post is just win right here. Thank you thank you thank you.
You pretty much said what I’ve been trying to say and have been thinking for a while.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. I am sorry if my opinion offended you. I did not mean to offend the artists or the readers in ANY way.
And I did say I was willing to wait. AS LONG AS IT TAKES.
I’m starting to think something happened to the artists in real life, since we haven’t even gotten a post about the wait.
I hope not Example, that would be one serious cliff hanger, as no one else would be able to tell this story the way he authors of this can. The graphics are beautiful, the storyline engaging and entertaining. I love this comic, I will wait for the next page, and know I will love the detail and whatever happens next.
Why are people complaining about the detail in the pictures and that its taking to long. This comic is well worth waiting for and the detail drags me in even more. I like people having their own opinions but please take into consideration the effort they put into it.
yeh same here in my opinion no detail makes it less interesting its annoying me that everyone complains
that cold feeling you get throughout your body when you are being accused of something terrible you didn’t remember and suddenly it just clicks and you cant help the flicker of recognition in your expression.
so thats how he lost his memories…. but what war are they talking about?
guess we’ll have to find out
Epic comic, by the way. ;3
I don’t understand one – why were they fighting with white and black dragons spirits?
A ja wolę jednak pisać po polsku. I love wolves, dragons and mystery & andventures & magic!
You shouldn’t play tag with dragons, they play by different rules.
This has got to be one of the most beautiful images i’ve ever seen O_O
I’m speechless… :O
*bows to the makers of the comic* ^^
… hmmm…. *thinks back to the very beginning of the comic* waaaaaaaaait. Wasn’t it supposed to be snowing when Jera and Riagho found Iki? It’s totally cool if this is changed around, but, whatever. Or maybe it was a day or so after he fell that they found him… muh…
When Iki fell, it stopped snowing
HO LEE CRAP.
Must. Have. As. BACKGROUND.
Amazing job as always, guys! I love how it looks chaotic, but really easy to follow along on. It’s like disorganized memories. I just…I just adore it! <3
I think it’s beautiful . . . you can tell that his old memory was shattered with unforgettable thoughts of his past
Woah that is beautiful and terrifying all at once!
What are those? Wyverns?
Dragons. The Guardians of Magic I’m guessing.
Speechless! I was sitting here for like 10 minutes pressing the ‘shift’ key over and over trying to think of was to write.
Wow, I am listening to a sad song at the moment, so this really, it’s just, idk, POW!
(That made no sense…)
So Askr is the first man in world and got eaten by dragon?
Askr is a girl
well maybe when Askr was with skoll, Askr was a guy then that picture we saw in the gallery Askr then was reincarnated? not sure if that fits. as a girl? taking a wild guess here…
Iki looks VERY.. sad
loving this ^^
Oh my F gawd. O.o
ohhh so that is what happened on that day!
New wallpaper. x^x
yeah! good coice!
wow… so beutilfull…
if Askr was devoured by a dragon shouldn’t she be reincarnated?
Just because someone thinks that Askr is a female or is Seven does mean that Askr is a guy you know.
I think Seven is Askr….
She doesn’t have blue eyes, though…
That expression on Iki/Skoll’s face makes me want to just wrap him up into a heartfelt hug. <3
Do you really want to?
wait so askr died? XD dumb question :3
Hmm…I wonder This page begs the question why Askr didn’t come back like Skoll did. Perhaps the spirit cannot be reborn if their body is destroyed?
Well Askr did die and the two people (forgot their names) are trying to bring back Askr but they need Iki/Skolls spirit to do it probably, cause of some spirit shit. So in short no he can’t come back.
And they are going to kill Iki, aren’t they?
I doubt it, they were relieved when they didn’t see any wolves with blue eyes when Othala’s pack was killed
good for them (wave flag)
Yes, but how they can transfer Sköll to a human body?
(Late reply is late) Weeeell… Technology!
Or I don’t know. Maybe they need Sköll alive.
Are the dragons fused together or not it is really confusing.
They are two seperate entities, just swaying around each other. Almost like how a snake’s courtship dance.
Iki is not Iki any more HE IS SKOLL!
Ok I’m confused here. Who is a girl in this comic? I mean, of Hati, Hugin, Munin and Askr. I’m reading comments and it’s confusing ._.
In the gallery, you can see the white human spirit is a woman. Then, Askr is the girl. Hati, Hugin and Munin are all male
i think that might be Hati over on the left side of the page
oooh! just have to express my excitement here!
Oh! Iki is evolving!
Hurry, press B! Press B! D:
congratulations! your Iki evlolved into Skoll. enjoy your new off whitemon.
Wait, the black spirit made the white spirit right?http://off-white.eu/comic/prologue-page-5/ You an tell me if I’m right or not. >:3
In a sense, the black and white spirits just split from each other. Kind of how Eve split from Adam in the bible.
Oh yeah. Thanks a lot Tahja!
I thought the human white spirt was a female? If you look in the site’s gallery the very first original piece made was of Embla(human black spirit?) an her white spirited sister Askr. So why is Askr being portrayed as a male?
Yes, Askr is female. Since this is showing their souls, I’m guessing it’s just supposed to be a generic human shape; not male.
They have many different incarnations
Askr was raised by the wolves!
I love that song so much >w<! I had no idea there was a nightcore version. Awesomeness!
| | (OMG)
| | /
Iki is Superman. He fell from the sky with powers. Raigho and Jera raised him. Story of Superman/ Iki’s life lol.
Haha! It’s like Smallville: Off-white edition
I think that the white and blue should be for the moon and the red and black should be for the sun. It would fit the colors better. If you look at the sun (hurts you eyes of course) Its a yellow/orange/reddish and around the edges its dark while the moon is white and glows slightly blue. But people like to accosiate darkness and redness with night and evil i guess. :/ I never understood that because im a nocturnal person.
black spirits aren’t any more evil than white spirits, they all lord over different things it doesn’t mean they’re anymore evil or good. Like the Snow leopard white spirit we saw before, he was greedy and cruel and caused a lot of trauma for not only the humans but they hinted that they had killed packs of wolves too, and he was a white spirit. Hati just seems like kind of a dick.
I meant to establish that black and white spirits weren’t good or bad automatically. I don’t think I explain my reasoning well though.
If they were fighting the dragon, why didn’t they ask the black spirits (wolf and human) to help?? And why has this dragon kept it’s instability in the form of being both colours and having two heads? I mean, before the spirits split to black and white, they were grey, right?? What was the dragon actually doing? What was it supposed to lord over? Why did the dragon consume Askr?? Why were they fighting in the first place? I suppose it could’ve been the dragon’s instability that drove Askr and Sköll to fight, but again, wouldn’t Hati and the black human spirit (sorry, don’t know it’s name or gender) have been helpful to have?? Also, when was all this happening and if it was due to the dragon’s instability that Askr and Sköll fought it, where were the other spirits? Couldn’t they have helped?? And what would’ve happened if Sköll and Askr had defeated the dragon, what would’ve happened to the dragons as a species?? Would they, and consequently, their cousin species (reptiles and perhaps birds), have died out? But if Sköll and Askr hadn’t failed their “mission” (as Hati did say Sköll did just like to fight), would Ragnarok still be happening?? I’m assuming yes, but slower, because in the prologue, Hati said that many species were dying out anyway. However, don’t the species die out because their black and white spirits died? But… don’t the spirits get reborn? But my point was, if Ragnarok were still happening, what would happen with Raigho and his pack? Would they have been any better or worse off? Or would nothing have changed?? Actually, Fehu would have presumably challenged Raigho. If Fehu had won, he’d have taken the pack home and this entire mission to prevent Ragnarok (i think) wouldn’t be happening. Sorry, i’m nit-picky and a bit confused really ._. Sorry… ,_,
As I understand it, at least, what I can infer, is that Skoll and Askr were close friends, and also kind of like rebels. The dragon spirits were destroying grey human souls, as Hati explains in a later panel, so they fought the spirits in retaliation, but Askr was eaten and Skoll’s incarnation was killed. As for the black spirits, Hati and Embla I believe, they didn’t believe the death of a few hundred grey souls was worth a war between spirits and a disruption of the balance, so Skoll and Askr fought the dragon spirits alone. Again, just speculation, but I think one of the humans earlier mentioned dragons were among the races that fell into decline, possibly extinction. In the prologue, there’s a lot of explanation about loss of balance and races dying out. As for Ragnarok, we’ll have to see how the authors portray it, but the legend is that it’s the end of the world, in which the Earth freezes (for like…eight hundred years or something? I forget), and then melts, drowning the inhabitants except for two survivors. I don’t know where they’re going to take that, but the loss of the sun herder can’t be good for the outcome. …I don’t really know any of this for certain, but I hope the (speculation) explanation helped.
I’ll ignore the points Shinsun made and put in that I’m fairly sure the dragon spirits were in fact two seperate beings, merely acting as one.
Oh, damn. This is so fucking perfect.
