This prologue is keeping me occupied while the main comic gets coloured! I should be able to do these one page (at least) every two weeks depending on my schedule.
(EDIT: apparently not :XD:)

Prologue = a part that comes before the story begins.


All of the colouring, art, ect, done by me. Thanks also to my friends who helped critique! XD Especially :icontsouka:

How come I've just seen this now DX
I love your comiic, and this idea of the sand is interesting, too =)
Only that I really had to lough when the fox said 'What does the sand say?', if you know what I mean X'D

I love the diversity, and the style. Very warm and mysterious. I also like the fact that the Baboon has stayed silent. It creates a suspene that intrigues me, because it feels like he has a ... different... opinion or viewing than the others =). it flows very well

Hehe, I believe you are the first one to realize this ;) Though some of them might be metaphorical. Those ones would have to be guessed. ^_^

How have I not seen this before??? :dummy:

It's really intriguing, and I love the color scheme. Also, I find it very interesting that they all have different things to say about the sand. On the one hand it's like they had separate impressions, but on the other hand I can see how all their interpretations could be true somehow. Well done!

I've read all the pages so far, this is a great comic. The art is very well done and I can see the story line is going to be fantastic. I always love magical-type graphc novels! You know, I'd love to buy it when you start selling them! :heart:

I actually have the next page partway done - but the epic throne is killing me. :P I thought about posting it with the throne unfinished, just to give people some heads up on the main Guardian story.

Gah! What will the monkey/baboon say? D:

Do you still have the time to keep working on these? I can just feel the foreshadowingness coming up on the following page.

No problem!

I love your work, the idea is so original! I also love how you incorporated lesser known animals into your comics, those majestic, elegant servals need to be more popular and the maned wolf is also a beautiful animal.

I just want to know how people think of these great plots. xD

The cat is a serval isn't it? The black ears, face markings, and the large stripes on the back of the neck really make it look like it.

Lovely and interesting. =D

Wow! Just wow, you draw animals so well (as do many other people on deviant but your style really stands out for digital) I'm really interested. I notice that the Gibbon(I think? Maybe? ._.) didn't say anything. Perhaps all the other animals are wrong? Can hardly wait for the next page! See you then ^^

A wacom tablet? you serious? I have one, I'm just waiting on getting a stylus for it. Be honest, if you were to take a quick glance at my work, do you think I could create something great in the means of comics, like yourself has done, and so many others like the Black Blood Alliance comics?

This picture, I just used a wacom tablet for the colouring and sketching, and I think I cut out the outlines with a mouse and did a bucket fill for the base colour :)
