Pele and Poli'ahu go Holuaing

A comic about the myth of Pele's banishment to one side of the big island after cheating in a game of holua-sledding with Poli'ahu, the snow goddess of Mauna Kea... Changing my pace and posting all four pages at once- when it gets into 4+ pages, it seems a bit much to post each as a separate deviation. I have a ton I'd change about this, since it was put together in a week, but I better post it now or I'll never get around to putting it up.

Probably won't get a reply but worth a shot.
I edit videos for a show called "Culture Shock" on Youtube. Just wondering if there's any chance I could use this in the video? It's about Hawaii / Pele as you could probably guess :p

Thank ye!

Poli'ahu outranks Pele anyway because her snow covers Mauna Kea.

I love their features and expressions, and the way you've broken up the panels to add design elements is beautiful.

The colors on this are brilliant! There is a nice progression and flow to the pages. Also, I love the fun you had with the frames themselves. Very entertaining, even without words. :3

I love Poli'ahu's sardonic shaka at the end. Awesome! :+fav:

Just been to Mauna Kea very true to form !!!!
I really like the random white lines going through each panel. I'm not quite sure what the purpose was, but to me it's almost like each panel was lined with tree branches and I think it works especially well in the close up of Pele.

Ah, mythology is wonderful, isn't it?

Excellently done!
