UPDATES EVERY SUNDAY WITH 2 PAGES STARTING MAY 2011.
25 years old, graduated from University of Architecture and Urban Planning "Ion Mincu" Bucharest, Romania, currently studying for her master degree in Restoration of Historical Monuments and Sites. Passionate about historical studies and avid manga reader decided in 2009 to start a series set in the 19th century Principalities of Valachia and Moldavia (to later unite in 1859 and to become the Kingdom of Romania several years later).
So, at first I thought that trees that are struck by lightning catch on fire and burn. And with this in mind I drew the page and it was quite spectacular. Then I showed a friend of mine the page asking for her advice and she quickly prompted me the mistake I had made.
Trees that are struck by lightnings DON'T burn. Why? Physically there is a sort of explanation that while wood is combustible (it burns)it's heat resistant and most surely does not conduct electricity. (All those handles on tools made of it...)What conducts electricity in tree trunks is the water/tree juice that runs through the plant, not the wood itself.
So when a tree is struck it most likely splits and superficially burns, because of all the electricity channeled through it, but it's not a burn down to ashes situation.
Overall I had to redo the pages while learning a new fact.
