Now you see me.. by BubbleWolf Now you see me.. by BubbleWolf
'The Sly One, the Cruel One and Lunar Stellaris, Lord of the Mountebanks.'

Slagar reveals the alter ego he will use to fool the Redwallers into trust to his slave band.

-If you've read the Redwall series and still don't know which book this is from, then there's no helping you ;)! This is the first of a set of b&w and coloured works based on the same book.

All stories and characters from Redwall are of course © material of the great Brian Jacques.

EDIT- A DD? Fantastic :D! Thank you Pixel-Spotlight for the really wonderful words and feature!

...and thank you to EVERYONE for the comments, favourites and watches!

Now you see me.. by *BubbleWolf. I've been a fan of *BubbleWolf for a long, long time (just take a look at his gallery and you'll understand) and for the past month I've been struggling to choose which of his awesome pieces to feature. Then this popped into my watch center, and all others were put to shame! Please make sure you full view to see the truly incredible details! ( Featured by Pixel-Spotlight )

He's in the novels Redwall and Mattimeo. The book referenced by your art, here, is Mattimeo. You probably know that by now, seeing as you posted this picture almost a decade ago... If not, I've done a good deed. lol Great work. Keep at it!

This is the first time I've ever seen Slagar the way I imagined him... and he's my favourite villain, so I'm really happy to see it!

Out of all the Redwall books, I think Slagar is my favorite 'villain'. This is the best drawing I've ever seen of him.

Sorry for the delayed reply.. ^^;

Yeah, of course! I'll be reading all of it! Redwall is my new favorite series aside from many others. The adventures the stories have to tell are amazing. And reading those moments where the characters talk and have the special moments make me gush with excitement. The villains are just as good as the heroes, and I love reading about animals. I guess you can say I'm nerdy about the series now.. lol

As you can see I'm probably worse at delaying replies so don't worry :D.

Well I certainly hope you carry on reading them :-), alot of peeps find they all share quite a similar formula really, but I didn't find myself becoming bored of it! Although I did read them over quite a few years :D

Hi there Ashley! First off I just wanted to thank you for all your wonderful comments, I appreciate every one of them very much indeed :-)!
As for the image I'm glad you like! I definitely plan on doing some more Redwall art but I want the next set to be much more ambitious, I haven't decided which book to go with either yet! So I'll have to get thinking :-)!

Amazing! I love his pose here and his cloak. And I like how the circles in the background mirror the circular motion of his cloak; whether that was purposeful or not, great job! This captures Slagar's mysteriousness perfectly.

Love the action of his cloak and the color choices, very indicative of an evening's entertainment after a feast.
