The Raven and the Cat by auryn The Raven and the Cat by auryn
Work for my Sequential Narrative class. We had to do a 4+ panel comic, and choose from one of five words provided for the theme. I chose 'longing'. Also, the project is to illustrate 'the hook', basically the twist a lot of comics have at the end.
Looks better in person, and I need to learn to work more tidily. With a ruler.

I can't even put into words how much I absolutely adore this.
It's beautiful and touching and the illustration itself is done wonderfully.
I love how it looks, and the colors, and the whole mood of the piece.
This is one of my most favorite things I've ever found on dA.

Don't consider a ruler, the rough lines give it an earthy feel (which for this work fits perfectly). Nice job.

the colors, the lines and the eyes of the characters is what makes this really outstanding. you really captured a great atmosphere. to me, it seemed kind of haunting/rusty/creepy feeling.

I think I got a good grade on this! But I sorta slacked off in that class. Got very egotistical and "I am a hotshot" AND THEN TOTALLY PAID FOR IT, and now I have learned that lesson well, in comics and in life.
