This is a scool project I actually did last year. I never uploaded it because I'm lazy... but now I'm working on another project that revolves around these same bunnies, so I'll share this with you!

I really liked your comic. Heart   For personal reasons as well as aesthetical and literary. 

It has a macabre tone permeating the whole development of the story, although the narration alone sounds like a great epic tale, much like the myths of Greek heroes and American super heroes.
The contrast between them is visible in the elements used to construct the story.

The opening sentence chosen to open the comic has a dark tone. The beginning already hints at something very wrong that is about to happen. 
The choice of dark colours (maroon and black, mostly) and the rabbits' empty eyes, with no irises, nor pupils, evoke the sheer eerie sensation of the animal's current situation. 
One scene that was particularly impressive was the empty, impersonal stare the group of rabbits gave our hero as they watched if he would jump down the hole.  :o (Eek) 


You not only told a story, you sent a powerful message with images that create a whole ambiance of latent fear and dread. The timing in which each new frightening revelation is made towards what feels like a terrible end was perfect. 
You've managed to make a story which makes us question: is being the hero always a noble thing? Is the sacrifice always worth it? Are we better people for yielding to the common good, even when it harms us? And are we dying for a noble cause the right thing to do when it demands all that we have, that is to say, when it may take our very life away?

Those were the aesthetical and literary reasons why I liked artwork so much.
The personal reason is because, unfortunately, most of the time, I feel like the hero of your story, being thrust into harmful or unpleasant situations by people around me, be they friends or family.  :( (Sad) 

Whatever the idea was that inspired you to draw this, know that your art sent a powerful message across the internet and touched someone very deeply. Thank you for displaying your work online! I hope there are more artists out there with as much of an insightful view of human nature as you!

Thank you for such an in-debt comment! I'm really happy my comic touched and made you think (your comment had a similar effect on me, hehe).

You've really brightened up my day. :>

Oh, I can kinda understand why. `v´ 
PanserPop's avatar
Really? Have you seen the movie or watched the book?
Most people haven't even heard of Watership Down. .

I've only seen the movie!

Oh really? I didn't know it was so unknown. oAo

Did you like it?
It's interesting fer sure.
And, it gave me nightmares as a kid. ;A;
That's what I get for watching a bunny tear out another bunny's throat..

I did like it! It was indeed interesting, but quite cruel. 

Oh my! I'm glad I saw it at an older age. XD

eikä! niin monta sivua; pidän näistä väreistä ja tyylistä. etenkin tämä eka sivu on hieno voin vaan kuvitella kuinka noi liikehtii edestakaisin. Mun täytyy itsekkin varmaan ryhdistäytyä ja alkaa vääntää sarjakuvia, tai ainakin nppeuttaa tahtia.

Kiitos! Tee toki sarjiksia, tulee hyvä fiilis kun saa sen valmiiksi.

en viitsi vaivata ihmisiä paatoksisella kuvauksella vähenemisestä kitkan kädessä ja märässä lasissa.
