Naor: Thesis Cover by Ahkward Naor: Thesis Cover by Ahkward
I'm very happy to have this finally posted. I got it approved by my teacher and I'm starting to finish up the last few pages and get everything put together in the final document! Almost done. 

Tuhk and Fahle really are the center stage of my comic, although Ahk and Koko are the main ones you'll see. The flowers you see are a special sort that Fahle herself invented and the wooden token behind her in itself is symbolism. You'll learn all that once you start reading. This whole thing is symbolism. :L

Done in pencil, then the color, text and border was added digitally, so I'll call it mostly traditional.

The first 4 chapters will be available online for free and you will be able to order a printed copy if you wish to. I'll be posting a journal soon as the first of the four will be released next month via a kickstarter for the printing.
