Sometimes art-trades go beyond what they were planned, and it seems my art-trade with :iconfruggo: was one of the most productive things on earth. My drawing inspired her a cute short story, and her poem inspired me... my first serious comic!!! :la:

This is a very strange piece coming from me because not only is my very first serious comic, it is also the very first time I draw something completely fluffy and romantic, but the poem definitely deserved it. If you want to comment it, don't do it here, go to the original piece because it's where all the praises should go:

Maybe, the last time In the early hours of the night,
Under the dark night sky and stars,
Next to the fire of the safe camp,
A loving couple share a sweet moment.
A moment for the tune, sent by the winds of time
Letting them remember the past.
One steals a kiss, the other smiles,
As they bath in a mysterious light.

He was looking at them,
Sadness in his eyes.
This sight pained his heart.
The knight remembered the old times,
But he must let them be in love
Not let jealousy control his mind.
He did not want to admit it, but he must,
They do look good together, "Argh!"

Staring at them, the old mage smiles,
Yet she did not think it was right.
Y


You will also see something in the style which will remind you of another great deviant, :iconabadir:, and you'll be right. I commissioned him to do all the "dirty" job: editing, lettering, coloring and shading, and OMG, I think this is the best inverted money in the whole year (Oh, well, the money I inverted on my new home should count too, shouldn't it? :XD:). No, seriously, if you're as tard as I am about edition and coloring, don't hesitate to commission him (here!! --> [link]) because he not only is awesome, he's also fast and serious!!!

So you see... here I am posting "my first serious" comic and it seems I only did a third of the work...

A veces los art-trades superan todas las expectativas, y parece ser que el mío con :iconfruggo: ha sido uno de los más productivos de la historia. Mi dibujo le inspiró una preciosa historia corta, y su poema me ha inspirado a mí... ¡mi primer comic serio!!! :la:

La verdad es que es una pieza muy extraña viniendo de mi porque no solo es mi primer comic serio, también es la primera vez de dibujo algo tan empalagosamente romántico y con tantos besitos y tal... pero el poema lo merecía... Degraciadamente no hago versión en español, porque perdería todo el encanto. Si queréis comentar el texto, id directamente al original porque es donde deberían ir todas las alabanzas al mismo:

Probablemente algo en el estilo también os recuerda a otro gran deviantartista, :iconabadir:, y tendreis toda la razón. Le encargué todo el trabajo "sucio": edición, textos, coloreado y sombreado, y cielos, creo que es el dinero que mejor he invertido este año (bueno, vale, lo que he gastado en reformar el piso probablemente también cuente... pero ya me entendeis, ¿no?). No, en serio, si sois como yo unos negados absolutos en esos asuntos, no dudeis en encargárselo a él (¡¡aquí!! --> [link]) porque no solo lo hace bien, también es responsable... ¡y muy rápido!

Así que ya veis, aquí presumiendo de postear mi "primer comic serio" y en realidad solo he hecho un tercio del trabajo...

You both did a superb job *-* I love the lineart and I love the colours ^^ So much better than how I imagined it while writing :D And Alistair is adorable :)

:hug: These were more or less the images in my head when I read the poem, specially Alistair (and Oghren :XD:)'s ones... But it is all your poem's merit, after all without it I had never felt tempted to draw something like this.

D'awwww I wanna give Alibear a hug. And Oghren's a big softie after all. However I think Sten can be a little bit more emotional than that.

We all knew that about Oghren... Sten is playing the hard man again, but I'm sure deep inside he is happy for them too...

And yes, poor poor Alibear!

Alistair should be careful poking that fire so closely.... XD

Yup... Poor thing, he's too sad to think clearly...

Oh, I really like the colors here... :XD:

Jokes apart, you are simply too kind, I just tried to give justice to your drawing </s>(though if you would have made them less "I stop the line here because I can" it would have been easier... ^^;)</s>. I think the color is a plus in a drawing, it would have been great even in your BW version. ;)

You do, don't you? :XD: They're the best part of the piece, along with the text ;P

Ok, ok, message taken, next time I'll ask you for the layout first and try to match it better

I would have never achieved the amazing light effects you gave to the panels... Prepare me a budget because I'm planning another long story and I'll need you again...

Hey, I'm herer until a find other clients (and even then I'll be always here, just with less time ;)) :D

Well, my next project is a long term one, specially because I'd like to start it AFTER the Hahren's quest is finished... and that can be months!! (BTW, are you finally going to do those background 3D renders? Shall I tell people to wait for them or can they start drawing???), but seriously, I'll find your help very useful. I guess I'll start for sending the script and sketches so you can do the layout, and then I'll ink and maybe some basic colors (I must look after my wallet, after all :XD:) and re-send it to you for deeper lghting and shades and lettering.
