dzChapter 9: Detoniturorum. The title is Latin (anyone know Latin?) and has a couple of different meanings in the context of this coming chapter. Hope you enjoy!

In other news, I think this chapter cover is one of Jeff’s best pieces of art ever.

jeffThis was a fun cover to draw, but also time to define Uncia a little more. Also, to work on its snarl expression. As was highlighted, its nose creases are much more defined. D.Z seems to love it but I’m unsure atm, comment below what you think tho.

As always, you can check out the higher res version on my DeviantArt and FurAffinity galleries linked below.

EDIT: New PC rig, which means I can record gaming sessions again! Suggest games I should play through, and whether I should commentate or not either here or on my YouTube channel.

    I love this cover…

    Detono, detonare. "to thunder down; explode".
    -Implies a massive amount of energy being unleashed or colliding with surrounding matter.
    -Where we get "detonate".
    The suffix "rorum" implies genitive plural case.
    Sounds like "their thundering" or "of their thundering"… I could be wrong.
    That's all I got, sorry.

    Agreed, now in this corner we have Panthera vs Aether (and whatever back up he (or she) cooks up in the other corner…

    Holy cow does he/she look fierce here

    Combo attack time again? And without Pardus around… Hmm…

    Leo + Onca = Mudslide. Tigris + Onca = Steam Explosion

    "Deton Iturorum" Directly translates as "Cease Thundering go".
    I assume it is directed towards the new arrival.

    I'm confused…

    Honestly, I'd say this is possibly the best cover so far. My first impression was something along the lines of "Oh god, it's going to leap through the screen and kill me".

    You know, I saw this and my first thought was: "I am kitty, hear me roar!" …oops? And while I am delighted to have my favorite big cat featured in the story finally (I've been wanting a snow leopard since hte beginning) I'm so sad to see it be a villain…oh well, I can live with it.

    Quidquid Latine dictum sit, altum videtur.
