The Fire Keeper

Here is my first short comic... yay!
I wrote the story myself and the pictures are sumi ink on coldpress illustration board. I haven't used ink in ages and was possibly enjoying it a little too much because I had a huge ink spill over the middle of the penciled board (disaster). After confirming that unfortunately the spill was not a dream I gessoed the affected areas and went on my way. The gesso gives the ink a cooler tone than on the warmer board, but in the end I actually kind of like the slight variation (success).

thank you my friend
your watercolor is gorgeous, was it influenced by Wyeth paintings?
fire comics looks great. Hope you have a nice break from your studies.
love you dearly
