Seasons: Requiem -Full- by nicholaskole Seasons: Requiem -Full- by nicholaskole
Yeah...about that "wait"...

I got itchy and decided I'd upload the whole comic :D

This was done over a year ago for a yet-unpublished Anthology called Seasons (to be published sometime soon by Sofawolf press...updates will follow!)

This was done at around the same time as Piper's Pet, and it was a source of some frustration to me at the time that Piper is a better comic, even though it was comparatively less work. This was done first, so at least I'm learning!

All I can see now are the flaws, and I do realize that it is narratively broken beyond all sense. I ambitiously wanted to do this silently, but see if you can guess what's going on!
I'm considering adding text, but I'm afraid it would be too much an afterthought.
Still, I'm glad I did it. It was a good learning experience. I hope you guys enjoy it in it's fullness!

More chatter and individual pages up on my blog: [link]

UPDATE:
I'm pretty amazed by how well this was received by everyone! Thanks SO much for your comments, I'll try to take some time to get back to y'all. It motivated me to take some of the feedback I've received and make some small but much needed adjustments. Just some touching up of contrast and color.

Not dead, methinks, just asleep. I think he was about to kill the boy, but couldn't bring himself to it. So he abandoned his horde and brought the child to someone else.

I love this! It feels very Redwallish to me- I actually think I like it without text, very nicely done!
