Surpriiiiise!

New page of Africa, one day in advance! Well, for those who read my latest journal, this shouldn't be much of a surprise at all, but I'm pretty sure many other people weren't aware of it, so, surpriiiiiise :la:

And this page marks the beginning of chapter TWO!

Wohooooo, I'm excited! We're going to see a BUNCH of new characters introduced in this chapter! I hope you like them!

But for now, we find our old friends back, three years after the events of Chapter one. Nadira, the wise, elderly gazelle, has now turned completely blind. Although her hearing is still fine, she cannot abandon the protection of her son, Paa, now a full adult, or of the herd of zebras they have asked for help.

Also, ALL THE ZEBRAS.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG ALL THOSE STRIPES TOOK TO MAKE.

*manly tear*

Anyway, in the wild, gazelles often "team up" with zebras against predators. Zebras have quite poor eyesight but excellent hearing, whereas gazelles have a great sense of smell. Moreover, gazelles feed on the short grass that zebras leave behind after they eat the longer stems. This way, there is a mutual benefit between the two species.

So yep, there you have it! I hope you enjoy this page!

Coloured Pencils on A4 Paper.

I want to improve, I greatly appreciate feedback and constructive criticism regarding anatomy, page flow and overall composition. Thank you! :)
