Mocheril reminds me of an Olm Salamander, I don't know if that's a coincidence, but it just popped into my mind.
Awesome painting, love the style!!!

This is amazing. I've been reading The Meek for ages (since...mid-way through chapter one I think?) but I've never delurked long enough to tell you how awesome it is because I...am...internet shy. Or something. But anyway, I love the way the two characters in this move and the shapes of their bodies work together, and I also love th hard white lighting. Also, Dagre scares the crap out of me, but is comepletely fantastic at the same time. And that is all.

Wondrous picture! That's awesome! Something here remembers me of the epic yin-yang battle between a chinese dragon (the emperor and his mandate of heaven) and the tiger (the imperial general and army), such a beautiful proportion of mythic basement, colour and abstract movement.

I love salamanders and the way you drew gradfather and his brother. Dagre's look remembers me of Wan Shi Tong, in Avatar: the last airbender series, with such a long neck.

Finally, the last thing i can say is, simply, "i love it"

And here I just minutes ago figured out that those two were related in one way or another. I was completely positive. And now here is the proof of my conclusion! Now, the next step will be applying to the Scotland Yard or some other fancy organization.

By the way, are the siblings of some kind? Thought I saw something implying that in the first chapter of The Meek. Or have I totally messed up?

Yes, Mocheril refers to Dagre as his brother :)

Wow this is beautiful. I love the use of colour as a way to direct the eye to the epicentre of the battle.
Also, goddamn those paws are beautiful.

Thank you ;u; I appreciate that! I only learned recently about using saturation to direct the eye (now all my old stuff looks hideously oversatted to me XD) so I was giving it a test run!

What I really love about this piece is that it seems to be still, but in motion at the same time. If that makes since. As if in one of those action sequences in a movie where it's slowed down to give you a view of the action. What I like is that it's not entirely clear what's going on, leaving it up to your imagination to decide.

Gorgeous. I wonder what tactics Mocheril would use? Physically, he would seem to be overmatched.
