Africa!

Ladies and gentlemen, enter Lake Magadi of Ngorongoro Crater, the main setting for the comic's second arc.
It's so... pink!
I gotta admit, I'm surprised by how many people correctly guessed that the pinkness of the lake was due to flamingoes! And those who guessed that the lake itself was pink due to algae or salts dissolved in it, you weren't completely wrong either! Flamingoes do feed on algae that grow in this lake, and the water is indeed salty! I'm afraid our little leopard family is going to have a hard time drinking from it.

This double splash page took me SO long, but I'm very very pleased with how it came out.
Yes, I did indeed hand draw every single fricking flamingo you see in that lake. You're welcome.
On that regard, would you guys be interested in purchasing posters of this image? Because if so, I'd be delighted to print them!
Let me know in the comments!

In the meantime, enjoy the page :)

Also, an important announcement! I will be on holiday throughout the second week of Semptember! (Sept 11th-17th), therefore I will be unable to post anything during that time. For this reason, the next Africa page will be posted on DeviantART on September 20th!

Bon je vais rédiger ça en français, désolé pour nos amis anglophones ^^'

Avant de commencer je tiens a dire que j'ai lu toute la BD et bon sang c'est du très très haut niveau sur toute la ligne, mais cet espèce de flou qu'il y a depuis une dizaine de pages est juste sublime c'est incroyable.

Concernant ces deux pages ,ce sont clairement les deux meilleurs de toute la BD le paysage est sublime, le flou admirablement bien géré et des couleurs flamboyantes, franchement tu dois absolument nous apprendre à utiliser les crayons de couleurs comme tu le fais : incroyablement bien !

These pages are my favorite because the scenery looks astonishing!
I like that I see(other than the flamingos) some animals like wildebeest walking and the antelope resting in the grass. I also really love the shadows underneath those trees and the shadows near those big pointy boulders.
But what really amazed me on this piece is the amount of flamingos the artist drew in the background. There are so many! And the way their bodies reflect on the water. That, again, this is so outstanding!
These leopards right here are astounding as well! Their coloring and shading is so wonderful!

Anyone who knows anything about flamingos will know that the water they inhabit is not a good place for practically any other creature.

I heard that some lakes are soooooo salty that your meat gets dissolved from your bones when you touch them D': Only flamingos can take that much, it seems huauhauhauha

If very salty water disolved your skin, people probably wouldn't like the beach that much. There aren't many bodies of water that are saltier than the seas. The defining feature of salty water is that it's terrible for you to drink, especially water with a very high salt content.
The kind of water that could more or less disolve the skin right off your bones is superheated water. There are some lakes that reach well above boiling point, usually due to volcanic activity nearby, and due to certain special conditions (such as being positioned in  tropical rainforest biome or being situated underground) which keep the water from vaporizing. If you swam in that water without any form of protection and stayed in there for enough time, your skin would very slowly burn off.
Only certain microbes can live in such environments and these organisms don't have to worry about exterior threats(unless the lake dries up). Not even flamingos could withstand the heat.

Couldn't help coming to stare at this picture.  And I've noticed some animals drinking the water of a small stream, that I imagine feeds into the lake. So maybe that is fresh water? I'll go back to starring at this picture now...excuse me.

Well... If they can't drink the water, they can at least feed on the flamingos that drink the water.
