They're attached to the finger bone, as a few people have guessed; the non-human species she was conceived from has much more prominent "thumbs.">>89350548
Yes, it's always been the plan to have the comic centered around the city. Partially to reinforce the idea of it being a little world in itself apart from the rest of the world.
People kept asking to see a wider view of the area though, so that's where the map came from! If nothing else, it helps give an idea of what/where the city is in relation to other places.
I actually wanted to keep it a bit like Discworld, in that no solid maps, distances or such were offered, letting the reader fill in the gaps with their imaginations, but even Terry Pratchett eventually caved and allowed official maps of Ankh-Morpork to be made.>>89353404
Isher didn't want to go home after Kass fainted, stayed up as long as she could, and then eventually collapsed into a makeshift bed mat on a nearby balcony.>>89356021

Yep, function over form. I specifically wanted to avoid making the nonhuman species humanized in attractive/sexy ways for a variety of reasons, but mostly so that they're seen as the entirely inhuman things they are, rather than a sort of "human but with nonhuman features" thing. Indrel are insectine and weird, yinglets are awkward as hell, baxxid are expressionless and intimidating, etc.
Not that I'm against cute/sexy/etc critter species, but I wanted their inhumanity to stand out in their interactions with humans for this story.>>89359053>Just makes me want to GO FOR IT and get my own off the ground already.
DO IT! Hell, that's how this comic started. Unless you're pitching an idea to a professional comic publisher, you have the freedom to start drawing at the skill level you're currently at, and the more you draw, the better you'll get.
