Long ago, Frith made the world. He made all the stars, and the world is one of the stars.
The first page’s lineart of my Watership Down comics, I made it earlier but haven’t upload it until today. This is the first page of the prologue of the first book, it will be 8 pages plus the cover.
I will upload the sketchboard too one day :)
The Black Rabbit of Inlé.
Two new cover lines: The Black Rabbit of Inlé and For El-ahrairah to cry.
New cover: Fiver Beyond.
A new cover: Nuthanger Farm.
Two new cover-linearts: Silverweed (White Blindness) and Fiver Beyond.
Bigwig and Vervain :)
Vervain is a bully-looking rabbit soldier of General Woundwort. Here he doesn’t look the best, I’ll create a better design for him.
Bigwig. The most badass rabbit of the world. Fighting rats, cats and General Woundwort, infiltrating a militarized rabbit colony and saving lots of rabbits… I love him.
Here is the fictive cover of the Watership Down comics I want to do. If it ever will be ready, this will be the cover - of the first book.
Cover for the chapter The Shining Wire. I haven’t made any pages yet, I’m too busy and designing pages would be a huge project now but drawing covers is fun.
Two cover designs for the Watership down comics. The first one’s the cover of the chapter The Shining Wire and the other doesn’t have any title yet, but it is at the end of the story, Fiver’s last vision.
Two Efrafans, Groundsel and Chervil. I’m a bit puzzled because I’m not sure who was Chervil in the Hungarian translation (I’m Hungarian you know, and this is the first time I read the book in English). I only know he was Sherbyl in the movie and he was Blackavar’s guard, but not in the book.
Groundsel is a very loyal soldier of General Woundwort, but he is a good guy. I tried to give him some cat-tish look.
Two new rabbit portraits: Pipkin and Dandelion, two nice guys. :)
Pipkin…he always reminds me a hobbit. His name sounds almost like ‘Pippin’ and his shapes in the movie were round and chubby. :) I like him, he is the nearest of the rabbits for the word “cute”.
Dandelion is a storyteller and a very good runner. I tried to draw him similar to a hare, but I failed, his eyes are too big and I’m not satisfied with him at all.
Silverweed’s Poem, illustrated.
He smells like barley rained down and left to rot in the fields. He smells like a wounded mole that can’t get underground. - Fiver
All I can say is, I’ll keep Silver and he can be just plain Weed. - Bigwig
The lineart of the page where Silverweed tells his poem. Well, I think I will redraw it when I will start the comics, but I like it until than. :)
Last week I started the page with Silverweed and his poem and I made two versions so far and none of them looks good…they are a bit… lifeless. The lines are not good. I’ll go back to the graphite pencil I guess…
And last day I had an idea. I’ll made some page some day… or at least a storyboard. I was thinking about the part where Fiver see his vision about Hazel’s whereabout. As I was said on DA, it is the most disturbing vision of him. I imagined it so nicely… I only need the book the fix the speeches and I can start. May be I’ll go to the library and make my storyboard there. :)
