I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for your wonderful support during this very rough week.
Reading all your beautiful comments puts a smile on my face. Thank you for being there for me.

About the page!

One major difficulty of this comic is that the animal characters don't cry (at least not in the way humans are used to).
This makes it much more challenging to convey stronger emotions, such as this scene. This page means a lot to me. <3 Poor Mosi!


Caran d'Ache Supracolor Soft pencils on A4 paper.

Questa pagina è qualcosa di davvero grandioso: sei riuscita a trasmettere ciò che provano Africa e Mosi usando solo espressioni semplici ma ricche di significato.

Ogni vignetta di questa pagina, ogni inquadratura....tutto contribuisce a trasmettere un senso di tristezza, di timore, ma anche di speranza.

Il disegno e i colori sono ricchi e vividi come sempre. Nelle prime tre vignette, i colori freddi dello sfondo e del terreno si contrappongono a quelli accesi del pelo di Mosi e di sua madre, dando un bell'effetto di contrasto.

Infine, la cura per i dettagli è bella come sempre, soprattutto nel disegnare ogni singola macchia del pelo dei nostri micioni preferiti!

Whew! Almost caught up. Been gone a while, and I was so excited to get back into my favorite leopard comic. Little Mosi got me tearing up a little. Poor little guy. So cute. Well done!

Wait, so Africa actually intends to confront Chui, judging by the comment about going home in the last panel? As far as I remember, it took Africa and cubs at least several days to get to the lake, so it may not be the best idea to leave the cubs for so long. :shrug: At least I hope that Africa is going to ask Faida for help, either with looking after the cubs or with confronting Chui.

Aww, the last two panels are so cute! :aww: It's such a tender and touching moment between Africa and Mosi - while it may seem sometimes that Africa doesn't share the same bond with Mosi as she does with Binti, this really shows that Africa loves her son just as much. :love:

I imagine traveling with cubs is a lot slower than she can travel on her own. After all, they have much shorter legs and not as much stamina as an adult.
AstarGoldenwing's avatar
That's a very good point, I didn't think of this before. :plotting: Then maybe Africa wouldn't have to leave the cubs for so long, I suppose.

I found your comic this afternoon and just caught up, and I got to say, this is amazing! The story, character, everything. This is traditional drawing, right? How do you make the speech bubbles so smooth and panels all equal?
ARVEN92's avatar
Thank you so much, I'm happy you like the comic!
That's correct, this is all traditional, except for the speech bubbles and panel dividers, which are added later in Photoshop :)

I've been following this comic for a while, and now that I finally have a DeviantArt account I can comment! I really enjoy how this comic is going and your art is amazing! You conveyed the emotions here really well and I can't wait to read more! :D
I have a bad feeling about what's about to happen though...

*When you don't come back*
I feel like that's where this is headed... I wonder if he'll stay with his sister and protect her even after they both grow up rather than abandoning her like most of their kind would?

The emotion in this page is just :tears:

Monsterwolf217's avatar
Everyone is about how emotional this page is and stuff (it is)
But here I am accidentally looking at Mosi's butt in the second panel and noticing his... xD yeah
I swear I was all about how cute he is running with raised tail, like a small house cat
