Not to sound like a turd in the punchbowl but what is with the transgender characters? Is it that terrible to romanticise a female character that's a physiological female? The subjects being Sika and Hiu. You've stated that Hiu's primary weapon is her sex appeal and that Sika is not a fighter making them the least, for lack of a better word, macho characters. With other female characters being badass pirates, standard martial assassins or calculating mob-bosses. I know two instances doesn't constitute a pattern. But could these common features belie an insistent, intentional or not, reluctance to allow your characters to conform to common tropes. Do you fear contributing or conforming to what could conceivably be called patriarchal, sexist and misogynistic prejudices and stereotypes toward female characters? I only say this because when creating characters it's good to know yourself and decisions you might make and why you're making a decision towards a character. I could be spitting nonsense, I felt trepidation about mentioning it. It could very well be that you simply have some development dialogue or even a lack of dialogue you want to do with these characters and themes, if what I'm saying makes sense, but I would be remiss if I didn't let you know of what could maybe be a pattern that you might not have noticed. I shan't say another word about it if you don't want. I still think all your work is brilliant, of course.

Sir I would like to compliment you on your comment, because it's a textbook example of a 'constructive' comment and you don't find well formulated comments on platforms like this often enough.
And not only that, thanks to you I now have a greater insight into Tys work. And I'd like to thank you for that. :)

Hm, I'm sorry to say I'm not entirely sure what you're saying?
Is it that both my trans*ladies happen to be the most "feminine" by typical standards, and you're wondering if it's too intentional?

Well I have a lot of other trans*girls in my other stories, not expecting you to know of them of course, but not all of them are femme like Sika and Hiu.
Hiu is a sexy character yeah, but she's also a ferocious fighter like a lot of the cisgirls in our story (cis being the opposite of trans*). I do push her sex appeal because I don't think enough curvy girls (let alone curvy trans*girls) are given a chance to be portrayed as an object of desire.
And I won't sugarcoat it, both Hiu and Sika belong to a whorehouse that sells them as "ladyboys." Not portrayed in a good light of course, the problem of femme trans*women who are fetishized for their bodies is something both me and my collaborator are against, and want to use this story to talk about it a little. Because both of them were brought into their line of work for their pretty faces, they both happen to be conventionally and femininely appealing. So in this story, both of them being very femme is intentional.

You are correct in assuming that we like to avoid patriarchal standards of women, but we also understand there's nothing inherently wrong with sexy and beautiful ciswomen. Again, we have plenty of those in our other stories, but the ones in this story just ended up being more rough-and-tumble due to the nature of the setting.
I don't think it's terrible to romanticize cisfemale characters, but I also want to romanticize trans*female characters too, you feel me?

Sorry if I completely misunderstood your criticism, but I hope that makes sense :)

Those poses are so dynamic, and those angles are amazing! 8D Her nose actually reminds me of my own, so I was wondering for a second there (before I read) if she what Pakistani, Indian, or Afghani. She's very beautiful! I like the detail about her moves mainly being distraction tactics - love it!

She's so pretty~ *_* There's just something about the dark hair and gold eyes I really love. I guess it might be the clear contrast or even the "exoticness" of the latter, seeing as I have regular brown eyes myself. Lol.

Sika's got a really cute sense of style though! I love how her dress just flows and billows out when she twirls! I probably wouldn't be able to do those earrings justice if I wore them though. <_< I'm so clumsy that I'd end up getting them caught in something somehow.

I think you've got an excellent grasp of her facial features! In fact, I love how distinct all the characters look now!

I really can't wait to see more work of TJ and Sika together! I find them so cute! I mean, Ryebread's still my OTP of the comic, but TJ and Sika (is there a ship name for them yet?) come a close second!

We actually call them SiJinh sometimes haha, but it's not official yet :giggle:

I had a bit of a hard time figuring out her features, but I'm glad to hear you're likin' the direction <3

Her movements may be imprecise and wide-sweeping, but they sure are mesmerizing! And would leave her opponents dazzled long enough that by the time they snap out of their daze and realize the fire show's over, she's long gone, haha!

*SWEEP SWEEP FLEE!* <-- That's what the gestures at the bottom say to me, haha!

Oh no a fire scarf that is so awesome and elegant!! Also I really love the idea of someone using fire bending to go "HEY LOOK OVER THERE," and then booking it, since so much of the cast in A:tla/lok are fighters. It's an interesting change! Oooh I also like how you brought out the yellow accents in her eyes/outfit. Too cool.

Ah no, the scarf isn't made of fire, it was just the same color ;u;
(THAT WOULD BE COOL THO, NO LIE)

Yeah, I really wanted her to be the weakest member haha. As weird as it sounds, I think it makes her really endearing in a way.

Thank you!
