The Original Three by Twokinds The Original Three by Twokinds
Now in color! Since I already posted the sketch, I'll just include the description I used before:

In celebration of the 8th anniversary of Twokinds, I decided to draw a picture of the characters who started it all: Trace, Flora and Keith. In the beginning, these were the only characters I had planned. It might not seem like it today, but originally, these three were going to be in a love triangle. According to the first scripts, Keith and Flora were meant to be involved in a sort of love-hate relationship. This idea was eventually scrapped though, and soon after, Natani was introduced to balance out the group. You can still tell, though, in some of the earlier comics, that Keith was originally supposed to become attracted by her.

Many things have changed since the original inception of the comic. Lots of ideas were being thrown around at the time, and many were scrapped and added along the way, to make up the comic you all know now as Twokinds. Still, it's fun to look back occasionally, and wonder what could have been.

Is it just me, or do I think that Keith's personality relates to Seamus's (SSoHPKC) of The Creatures?

If I had to choose to be either Trace or Keith, I'd choose Keith. He's waaaaay cooler than Trace.:happybounce:

She's only 11-12 (it's been over six or so months) years old, unless there's some huge time-jump in the plot (or if Tom will keep the story going long enough to get there gradually) there's no reason for her to die in the comic, not of natural causes at least.
Tom could still have her killed, to get some dramatic character developement for Trace for example, but I can't see that happening, at least not until some very late/final stage of the story, given how central she and her relationship with Trace is to the comic's core theme.

Also, try to look at the situation from another angle. It's been already established that there's no known way to prolong one's life (not saying Trace can't eventually find a way if Tom can make it plausible within the lore). But there's a lot of ways to shorten one's life, black magic comes to mind and Trace has already been affected by prolonged use of it, or something that might happen to him further in the story. I know it's kinda cruel to wish for him to die sooner, but as far as I can tell that's currently the only way to balance his and Flora's lifespans.

We'll see when/if it gets addressed again. :)

Very convenient is no good. Nora said it in the comic: you can't fight your nature, you can just enjoy the little time left to savor life. There's no point inventing a (too much) convenient event to cheat with life, it would be a poor move from Tom. 

She will probably don't die during the comic (maybe after) and even if we saw her die, it could be beautiful. Sad and beautiful. In fact, the more I think to it, the more I see Arwen's story (of LOTR) in a reversed way. And it's beautiful.

I was thinking that maybe she could live longer since she has human DNA in her, maybe, and I hope so. This comic must go on with Flora in it or it will be no where near the same.

BJockes Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2014
If she dies, it probably won't be in the middle of the comic I think. There's still a lot to say.

But the DNA of her son... It's his DNA, not her DNA. The child may live longer but it won't affect her. A child longevity never affected his/her mother longevity.

(But don't get me wrong, I don't wish to see her die. Just that is how I see it coming. Sorry.Shrug )

Tomorrow is going to be the end of me. :o
Anyways, AMAZING job. Maybe too good in my opinion because I'm just about addicted to Twokinds, well... I guess Flora :). Thank you for this amazing comic that I have yet to finish!!! Once again, THANK YOU!!!!!

I've read your whole comic and love it but there has always been one random thing that has kind of bothered me about Keith. I have yet to see his pupils, I have even re-read the comic and tried to find any pages where you drew Keith's pupils and could not find any. Is there a reason you do not draw them?

there is a reason and i have seen picture of keith's eyes coloured and drawn in, and i can tell you they don't really fit, its easier not to and i think it looks better as is, although i don't know tom's actual reasoning for it

:iconakd123:
akd123 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
the reasoning is keith is depressed, hes hollow, his eyes are meant to represent his dead inside mentality, if you notice, the other basitans (or however its spelled) have full glossy eyes, if im feeling depressed, my eyes get sunken and hollow to...

I first read a whole 10 years worth of this comic in half a day and half a night. It was actually on April Fool's day. I couldn't get off it. I'm not even a comic guy. I found one strip of the comic from google images. I typed in sadism. It was a spoof of mike (girl) and Evals. Let's not talk about the picture...

It's taken me about 10 hours, but Ive read the whole comic from page 1 to page 722. I'm exhausted.

But lets put it this way. I've read many webcomics, and am still following some, and this is the best i've ever read. You're an awesome writer dude. And I can't believe Ive read almost ten years of a comic in one night...

Anyway, I've kind of guessed about 5 different outcomes, with varying levels of joy.

Also, SPOILER ALERT!!!

Am I the only one who recalls page 206? Because, to me, it seems that flora's pregnancy is due to ephemural's interfering?

I think I originally was one of those people in the comic who are all against the "animals" and was rooting for Trace only. But Flora was too lovable and cute to hate. Besides I love tigers normally and my friend that go me interested in this series said I would most likely be a tiger Keidran. I love the way this art style looks and how the comic's art has grown over the years! I'm rooting for Trace and Flora all the way!!!
But please say that sometime down the road it's ganna be Natani and Keith! We ALL know it's there, and we know Natani's soooooooooooooo a chick I say hook them up! They make a fun couple. ^w^
