This looks great! I thought I recognized the art style!
And, hmm....two of the characters in the book seem to resemble two characters in Off-White (Huninn and Muninn, the ravens). Very interesting. Norse mythology does often grace creative minds with its presence. :D

And this little pig went whee whee whee, aaaall the way home.

...I'm sorry. That's not funny at all.

Anyway, SQUEE GRYPHONS! As an Off-White fan, it's interesting to see your styles on something other than wolves. Will you continue this comic on DA, or will these pages be left as a "teaser" while the rest of the comic will be in the book only?

This is amazing!
Is this comic just a few pages of the actual book or is the book in the normal format along with the comic?
Can someone please tell me what percentage of the book is this artwork and comic, because I have just died. THIS. IS. AMAZING.

Hi! (Book author here ;) This is part of a four page mini comic to help promote the book, and illustrates one of my favorite scenes. The rest of the book is plain old text :D You can read the first chapter on my Deviant page!

I agree with everyone else about the Griffin. Everyone will think it's three, not one. Otherwise, great page!

i think it would have been more affective if in the middle panel you made the action sequences of on the ground and in the air faded a bit, so it looked more like one character and not three...

I'll have to agree with some of the other comments that the fourth panel is a little confusing and that the implication of movement is a little weak. It does seem as if there are multiple griffins instead of one moving one. Other than that, it's absolutely beautiful :)

I love this however I think the 4th panel where the griffin is jumping onto the tree branch is a bit confusing--at least at first. I thought there were three griffins instead of one and it took me a moment to figure out that the griffin was in motion and you were showing it's trajectory. Maybe you could 'lighten' the griffins that were in the past (like, kind of transparent)?
That's just my opinion anyway
In any case I love your style! Please keep up the good work!

OH. I didn't understand that frame until you mentioned it was the same gryphon, lol. It all makes sense again now. Yeah, I'd definktely recommend adding some transparency or perhaps even a bit of motion blur to make it clear that it's moving.

LOL when I saw the comic in my inbox I already thought that the style was pretty familiar and did not notice that you were the one who has uploaded it. And then when I read the page, I could swear that it was your and Akreons work. And I got confirmed as soon as I had reached the end of the page XD
Really nice one so far...even if we do not know anything at all, it looks really interesting. Once again your style fits just perfect with it. The backgrounds are wonderful and the same goes for the griffin and the boar. I am really curious at what the comic will be about:D
