Malaak II p8 by Majnouna Malaak II p8 by Majnouna
Ooh, colors! Yes well I was playing with the setting sun palette for the past 3 pages, so it went from orange to dark blue with a brief flash of green... I am not used to playing lighting engineer this way but it doesn't look half bad.

Notes:
Majnouneh: "You're insane!" But literally, the word means "possessed by jinn"! We use it every day without thinking of its etymology anymore... That would explain, of course, Malaak's response.
Bismillah: "Dear God..." (actually "in the name of God...")

Not really, all this can't have taken less than 20 minutes, which is more than enough time :)

Majnouneh means jinn-possessed, of course! Why didn't I think of that?
The setting of the sun is very well done, good job.
So... now people are going to notice the existence of the jinns? Is something going to be done about it? This keeps getting better and better... :)

Majnouna Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008  Professional General Artist
I would have thought everyone would think of that :XD:
They can't. Even if they knew they were around, they still couldn't see them. What does it take to gain that sight? That is the question...

Maybe Malaak could "reveal" jinns to people? On second thought, if she could, she'd have done so long ago.

One way or another :lol: Cf the stories of all mystical and scientific "prophets".
Anyway, at this point it would cause more harm than good.

Ce qui est génial, c'est que la petite ailette de l'arrière du mollet se relève toute seule, et que le vêtement reste tout blanc immaculé.

Ah, là là... être une super héroïne et ne pas avoir de repassage à faire :)

L'ailette est quasi-rigide, et pour le reste, no comment!

:iconmarie-aude:
Marie-Aude Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2008
Oui mais l'ailette ne lui rentre pas douloureusement dans la cuisse quand elle s'accroupit, c'est ça le truc :) :)

Bon enfin si Maalak veut bien venir me super-héré mon repassage ;)

Bises

think about how worried you would be if you saw someone do that and didn't know their abilities, though. he's just terribly worried and his nerves had been stripped. Especially in an area like Lebanon, where (correct me if I'm wrong Joumana) there is still a generic "must protect the women and daughters" sort of feeling of responsibility for the men.

I suppose, but it upsets me, situational, geographic, and sexist reason aside.
I understand that it is honest,
Realistic,
Telling,
But I still disagree.

The word bismilla rang me a bell....it's in the song by Queen, bohemian rhapsody...now it's nice to know what it means =)

Btw, thanks for explaining the meaning of Majnouneh, it's one of those words that the real meaning seems so obvious after you're told.. imagine how stupid i felt when i realized that "beniadam" means "son(s) of Adam". I guess some words you say so often you don't even think of what they really mean..

I love the colours, they look so very atmospheric, and really suit the action going from anger to shock.
I must say, I hope everyone realises just what it was she did, because otherwise she's in big trouble.... ;)

Wonderful!
It's looking better and better with every page, and I don't just mean because the story's evolving. The comic style's getting smoother and smoother.

It is also very interesting to have phrases and words dotted throughout the comic. It adds a certain flavour I find interesting. :) What language are they in?
