Cover for the very first chapter of my upcoming comic "Seeds of Hope". I expect to start uploading the first pages when I come back on holidays, this is sort of a promise that I really intend to do it.

I must say... I hate it, but couldn't do anything better. And at least, lettering by :iconabadir: made it look a bit like a real cover and not like the fluffy stupid drawing it is.

Sigh.

Prologue: Surprise The moment Yllwenn saw Zevran running at her from the Keep, she knew everything was going to be all right. Nothing could scare her now that her beloved was with her. She missed him dearly. She showed him just as much at the very same night. And few next. But with Zevran, that goes without saying.

They planned to set on traveling as soon as the Keep was in relatively good shape. Though that seemed to take a while since most of the walls were damaged and courtyard was littered with mostly darkspawn corpses. Velanna's body was never found and Yllwenn had a feeling that the surly Dalish had run away. Justice... Well, Kristoff was cleanly behea

Disclaimer:

This is a work for fun inspired on a character created on the Role Playing Computer Game Dragon Age Origins. The world, settings and most of the characters depicted here belong to Bioware. My vision of Yllwenn Tabris, though, is only mine, as it is the story I'm creating about her and some of the visions of the Lore I'm going to reflect in this story.

Text in the comic has been kindly reviewed by :iconwirls: and :icontwilightlover28:. All typos and mistakes, however, are mine, as well as the story itself. Text in the comments has not been reviewed and I apologize if my English tears your eyes out.

Lineart, colors and layout by me. Text edition by :iconabadir:

Thanks for all the support Yllwenn and me are receiving from all the Deviant Art community. I wouldn't be doing this if you weren't there!!!

I think you give yourself way too little credit. I think it's a nice drawing and a nice cover ^^

Thanks. But this is one of those pieces which doesn't look like I'd like it to look like.

(sorry for the delay - err... holidays...)

Its great.The thing that stuck out to me,was the curled knife.It seems strange. BTW if your wondering why ihavent uploaded anything,its because Icant find the chapter in the group. :wtf:

Thanks!!! Eeer... the curled knife? It has its reasons to be strange, but lets say... I just suck at drawing knifes, anyway. But I didn't find a reference for what I had in mind... In a few pages you'll understand...

As soon as I come back home from my holidays (tomorrow, but today I'm using the hotel WiFi to try to finish answering comments) I'll update the group, I hope I'll answer your doubts there. Anyway, this is a completely different story from the one you're working on :)

Awww, thanks! I think it's a bit dull but I prefered to work better in the pages than in the cover...

This looks so cool. I'm hoping the cover is just for dramatic effect and that there will be some happy in this story? Especially round the ending part :XD:
