TO OPERATE FLIPPING BOOK, DRAG THE RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE PAGE

WHEW.

Here it is - I'm very, VERY pleased with it, but I feel like I could sit tinkering with it for another month. At some point, though, I really just have to stop. However, you'll nevertheless probably see an improved version of this some time over the summer. :D

Also, thanks everyone who joined me on Livestream to see me finish! :D


As this is a very complex entry, I believe it merits a scene by scene description:

OPEN AREA OF THE LABYRINTH

I needed to do at least ONE bit that referenced my favourite movie of all time, so I made sure that this part looked a bit like the beginning of the labyrinth in Jim Hensen's oh so wonderful Labyrinth. The mechanical cuckoos are based on great spotted cuckoos, and are, naturally, a reference to cuckoo clocks.

GIANT CUCKOO CLOCK

For those who can't remember, this is based on Sailor Pluto's gates of time. The little figures are acting out a scene in *marie-berry and *kennasaur's fan mythos or what have you. Also note that the girl in Xena's memories who isn't Pluto is *silver-eyes-blue's Sailor MakeMake. :D and that the girl with Xena in sillhouette is *oasiswinds's Sailor Earth.

ENCLOSED PORTION OF THE LABYRINTH

I tried to make this look a little like a ship. :D Note that the mouse has a hook to replace the missing end of it's tail. :D

WATER CLOCK

First of all, you may not realize that what the wind up Dizzy and Xena are dancing around is an African water clock. The bowl at the top has grooves on the edge which allow the water to slowly drain throughout the day, and time is told by marks on the inside. Also note that the tails of the mermaids are shaped like Victorian clock hands. :D

ROTATING DOORS

They're supposed to be rotating clockwise on the circular gear - hope you can tell!

STONEHENGE

This particular one should be fairly self explanitory if you remember that Stonehenge was meant to be a calender, and if you've been keeping up with *Valendra's comics.

For the rest...Burton and steampunk and pirates, oh my. :D Also dragons.


CAMEOS

*marie-berry's Bill, Slade, and Ichabod
*oasiswinds's Sailor Earth
~nephrite-butterfly's Sailor Butterfly
*kennasaur's Aeon, Sailor 1776, and Sailor LT
*silver-eyes-blue's Sailor Makemake

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS

Just one word - Amazing!
Your comics are always so awesome. A clock theme for labyrinth was such a great idea! And I like how Xena's dresses change from room to room.
And I was surprised to see a slight CLAMP's Clover references ^^
Oh! Almost forgot - thanks for cameo.

Yeah, couldn't do a round with Chronos and 1410 without some SERIOUS steampunkery. :D And it doesn't get much more steampunk than Clover!

Sigh. Always late to the party, I fear.

This was absolutely amazing, hon. Your interpretation of the Labyrinth is absolutely amazing--way above and beyond what I would have ever expected. It's really whimsical and original and feels absolutely storybookesque, which I love.

The characters are absolutely perfect. Kairos is spot-on, our characters are just right--I especially like that you've captured how tired and unimpressed Jane is. And of course, Dawn's outfit is absolutely fantastic. Just ... oh gosh, so much love.

Thank you so much again! Really, I cannot tell you enough.

Aww, thank you so much, sweetie! Your characters were a dream to work with!

By the by, I wanted to run a few things for the final round by you...do you maybe have time to AIM tonight or soonish, or should I send you a note?

I think I might finally be able to get onto aim for more than a few minutes without coughing up a lung, so yes! I should be around tonight. If you don't see me, though, send me a note b/c I'm in the process of moving and that usually upsets my schedule. O:

Apparently, you were wrong about this, you poor tyke! So I'll ask you here: I want to do a scene in the beginning that very SLIGHTLY implies they might possibly have been together. Basically, they'd be asleep in each others arms on the floor of her apartment, but fully clothed. And the exact locale and general air would imply that they might also just have fallen asleep watching a movie or something. Thoughts?

Oh! That is absolutely ADORABLE. You always come up with the cutest ideas. Totally go for it! :D

Thanks! I JUST discovered that Dizzy had fans last weekend! I was shocked!

Thanks so much, I'd LOVE to try to pop her in the final entry too, if you'd be cool with that? I was thinking of having Xena call her 'fun size'. :D

AWWWW! Well, there will definitely be more comics! I've just joined two rp groups (Siyyon and Toradah), and because I can't rp for beans, there will be PLENTY of comics in connection with that. Plus, I'll be starting my personal one too. :D

Also, in the UNLIKELY event of my winning, Eris will be participating as a judge in next years SMOCT, so I'd probably do a few comics for that. :D

I have no idea what the premise or your plans are for the Final Elimination! But I guess if they all wind up on Lilith's predestined planet Calliope will be there and will be trying to help.
Psyche has become good, but mission oriented for now. But she'd absolutely be watching the last round with her teammates back on SMOCT if it's broadcasted.

Well, gorsh. I just don't know! I suppose Calliope being a cute nuisance would be the most realistic.

I owe ~AJ-Reaper a cameo too - she suggested having Awai give Xena some cookies, and having Pun tag along. :D What do you think? That I think would be good, as I've drawn about 20 pages and a colour illusration of Psyche, and have only drawn little piddly things of Pun. :D

What do you reckon she'd think of Eris, by the way?
Reply
:iconpsychmeout:
psychmeout Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2011
Hrmm... I think she'd think Eris is the pretty girl and just want to admire her clothes (maybe invading some personal space.) She's very taken with fashion and elegance. She can have her moments of intuition, too. So if Eris is feeling especially vulnerable she may sense the pain. That would not be out of character, but any insight is going to be short-lived. XD

So she could do a sweet moment or just a "Oh look at all the pretties!!!" moment.

Most of all, though, she wants to be BFF with everyone. Eris included. XD
