While the new artist, Xin Ye, is meeting the awosome standards of his predessessor, I couldn't help but notice a change in something I thought as plot related and not just an artistic style. On page 3 you can clearly see that Ansom, Ossomer and Tramennis all have a relatively "earth-human" head, instead of the huge head erfworlders tended to have on the last book (I think Parson noticed that there). Ansom used to have such a head. For me, that was one of the things that made erfworlders feel "cute". I think once you change that you loose something important.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not flaming anyone, and the rest is great. It's just that I feel like something is missing there.
You're not your character class.
You're not how much GP you have in the bank.
You're not the airship you fly.
You're not the contents of your item list.
You're not you fuggin' armor.
You are the all-fighting, all-spellcasting heroes of the world.
