This was so much shorter in my head. I guess I know how tournament arcs always get out of hand - fights are so short in your head.

Funny you should say that.

It's magically melded to her head, isn't it?

Guin may have to be a big damn hero, and snatch it back from queenie.

The upside to fights turning out longer than expected, is that you get to do more fun arting ! :D

oooOoohhh .. lots of nice arting on this page, and all sorts of delicious details happening too !
Guin shatters her sword and shows her heroic side!
Goldie activates the shield, and punches a hole straight through the expanding bubble.
Platinums dress is probably not long for this world.

And that fire is acting ... mysteriously!

That bubble seems to be pushing everything out of its way (see: Tia going all Twister (as in the movie, not the game), and the grass). If it's pushing everything, maybe it's also pushing the air, which could explain the fire.

And yeah, the dress seems done for.

Did Guin just break her sword?

Yes, it's an incredibly major plot point that she won't be able to stab the unkillable thing.

And is the gold princess, who's name I've forgotten, somehow inside the bubble because she has Guin's magic shield?

Yeah, but it's not that important.

Is Guin's shield auto-activating in a way that's very lucky for Goldie, there? It looks like it is doing a thing.
view edit delete reply

It's not exactly auto-activating. Or rather, it's been auto-activated the whole time: it takes 2 spirit to use it, and Goldie has more than 2 spirit.

It's a magic diffusion shield, it automatically resonates with most magical effects. :)
TeeKay edit delete reply
TeeKay
Ah.. That explains how it punches through the expanding magic bubble like that.

Does its effect protrude a bit? Or does it just cover the user even if the effect it's diffusing isn't focused only on the shield?

Just wondering because her feet are in front of her and would've been hit by the bubble before the shield.

She got knocked on her butt, but the diffusion is pretty useful. It's a 'blurry' edge.
TeeKay edit delete reply
TeeKay
Ah yeah, that makes sense.

I betcha that Goldie is happy to have that shield though.

The dress on the platinum princess looks especially hard to draw.

It's not too bad, but it does use a completely different technique than everything else.
