Neither of them look Moroccan, rather Southern Indian.

Wow
This has such a clear and bright lool and colour.
Kind of reminds of me The Jungle Book of Mowgli falling of the tree seeing the village girl and breaking the jar.
Congratulations! :clap:

It's pretty but I'm wondering why they look Indian? Moroccans are Berber people (I'm pretty sure) so yeah. It's SO pretty though :D

I created this on a monitor that displays colours quite light, and having seen it on a darker monitor, I know what you mean. In the future I'll probably cross check before I upload. Thanks for the comment :)

I love the last panel... it looks like the boy is crying and runaway, while the girl gets angry (look at her hands squeezeeeeee the fabric).

This is such a simple comic but it looks great. All the textures are wonderful and I like the lack of define panels. The colors all work so well together.

Monkey-Mafia Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2010
I'm no expert on the distinctions, but all the fashion and architecture is spot on because I used loads of photo reference. In my research I also found evidence of communal water wells/fountains in historical Morocco so I'm sure it's not too 'off'. Can you explain what's exclusively Indian about it?
Reply
:iconbat2allim:
Bat2allim Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010   Artisan Crafter
The custom of the woman/girl is indian and exclusive to India, Pakistan or something similar in Sudan sometimes..It`s called Saari..

And it`s definitely not related to Morocco..
Reply
:iconmonkey-mafia:
Monkey-Mafia Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2010
Yeah you're right. Very similar though. Lots of long flowing cloth. Dresses in Morocco just seem to be more symmetrical, whereas Indian ones seem to include asymmetry. It's not fully like a "SAREE" as the ones I've seen are much more decorative. I'm sure you can forgive the mix up as every other element is distinctly Moroccan, so, as I'm sure you can see, your comment "Morocco ????? O.o this is Indian !!" wasn't well thought out.

no no no,, i`m not talkin about the long flowing cloth.. nor did i mention how much decoration there is..

if ur a middle eastern i`m sure u would have understood what i`m talkin about..

can i know ur reference plz ?? i`m afraid u have fallen under the influence of the whole stereotyping idea thingy.. that`s all..

ur art is perfectly neat btw.. i`m just talking about the "Morocco" issue..

That's what it remins me of.
