Aaaaaah I've loved this book since I was eight! This looks great! Excuse me. Gotta squee some more.
Aww, so glad you found me, and hope you continue to enjoy this. If you're interested, I have done a lot of other straight illustrative work on the series. It's on my gallery at dA: http://saeriellyn.deviantart.com/
I have not even read page one of this, but I subscribed anyway. "Munchings and crunchings!" Awesomeness :D
Hooray more subscribers! :) Leapings and shriekings of joy!!
Hope you like my interpretation. Thanks for commenting!
This is mighty fine work which I only just discovered today, sorry for overlooking you!!
Thanks! Not much of an overlook...I've only been here about 12 hours. lol Thanks for the comment!
So pretty. Especially the blonde girl.
Since you do not know her name, I take it you are a stranger to this book. Welcome! That doesn't happen much. My fan base mostly already knows this story, so it's nice to hear an opinion from somebody getting it fresh through my work. I hope you'll continue to let me know what you think!
I love your work! I reread the series at least once a year, and I'm so glad that you're faithful to it. (One thought though, I was hoping to see a shaggier Gurgi.)
He may well look different once I get to him in Chap 2. This cover was done as a separate project and there are some discrepancies, but overall it worked well enough to use.
Glad you like it! Please don't hesitate to share your thoughts! Hearing from fans really helps keep me motivated.
OMG!!!!!! I was totally thinking about doing something like this (in manga style) but seeing this is amazing! I am soooo looking forward to reading this! Fantastic art, and one of my FAVORITE stories (like, it's up there with The Hobbit and The Enchanted Forest Chronicles!!!)
Super cool (I'm really excited!)I hope you end up doing the whole series :D (no pressure, no pressure at all!)
lol, yes, I already have friends expressing anticipation over the appearance of Adaon, or how I'm going to adapt Taran Wanderer. I can only think as far as the next chapter or I get totally overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of this project. If I get through Book One I will consider it a near-miraculous accomplishment!
Glad you like it and always happy to hear from another fan of the series.
Finally! I have time to myself to view your amazing work, Dawn. Now if I can only get some more stuff done...
This was my first fantasy series. A great pleasure in my life was making it my 2 sons' first fantasy series. We all love it.
Now I get the pleasure of introducing them to your wonderful adaptation. Thanks!
My sincere pleasure. Hope you guys enjoy reading as much as I enjoy creating.
I was directed here by the below link. This has been/is one of my favorite series of books, right up there with LOTR and my all time favorite The Unlikely Ones. That book is really amazing.
I wanted to complement you on your artwork. Believe me, I know about passion projects, (Had a fourteen year adventure in LA trying to sell the screenplay to Unlikely Ones.) and this looks really cool.
Disney just bought the rights to the series, and as Producers really get drawn to Graphic Novels, (See what I did there?)
you might want to send Disney a link to your site. I've worked with illustrators, and you are as good if not better.
Thank you so much Greg. I get a huge traffic surge every time that Vox article surfaces, but the vast majority of viewers never interact. I so appreciate your taking the time to give feedback.
I'm well aware of what's going on with Disney and am of several minds on it. Though nothing would make me happier than to be rewarded (by something other than personal satisfaction, which is substantial, let me add) for my work on this project, my first instinct about approaching them is to fear that they would exercise their clout to shut me down. I know back in the day with Narnia they threw their weight around at anyone using the name in domains, etc. It's unlikely that whatever they decide to do with a film will follow the books as faithfully as I am doing, and frankly, I'd rather stick with Alexander's vision than Hollywood's.
I am musing on the possibility of approaching the books' publishers via an agent, though. If something like this were to go to print I think it ought to fall under their jurisdiction. So we shall see!
that looks interesting subscribed *thumbsup*
Awesome, thanks for the sub! Hope you enjoy.
My favorite book ever! I hope you get to The High King! Sub button clicked.
I love your Gurgi and Doli, so much better than the stupid Disney versions!
Thanks! Not fond of the Disney versions myself, which I'm sure comes as no surprise, haha.
