DQ IX: A Paladin's Duty by wbd DQ IX: A Paladin's Duty by wbd
The Paladin in my DQ IX party is always ready to shield her allies from even the most terrible of attacks. She is quick to stand up and take those strikes, and always without complaint. Such a noble protector of the weak! Who else but a Paladin would act as such, and without any ulterior motive?

Art Notes:

With a skill like "whipping boy", I started to wonder if there was something "funny" about the Paladin class, and that's what led to this comic.

In truth, I really like my Paladin character (Meena), because she always does a great job on defense and as a secondary fighter.

Drawn in SAI, lettered in OpenCanvas, and when I screwed up and drew the inks on the sketch layer I used Paintshop Pro to fix it.

Never thought in my life I would think "naughty Paladin", yet here we are.

I wouldn't play just a tank character alone, but in a party, the Paladin is really useful in DQ IX. She has lots of spells to help with boosting defense, and when she gets hit it's really minor.

She enjoys her duty WAY too much.

It's a tough job, so it's good that someone who really loves their work is doing it.

:heart::heart:Very cool!:heart::heart:

That was the thing I loved about Final Fantasy 2 with the hero ... goes from being a bad guy to a good guy and then to a noble hero. :)

Thanks! I think that this Paladin is certainly noble in her intentions...

But, the last panel "suggests" she got something out of it. :)

Now this kind of Paladin I like >:3
Great job with the expressions and fluidity of the actions!
I would love to see more of these :D

That face in panel 4... :drool:

Well, she's an easy to like Paladin!

I think that the more of these I do the better I get at doing them, so with any luck all of these little practice pieces will help out a lot. I plan on drawing at least a couple more soon.

Thanks!
