Cool comic :) thanks for showing me.
I don't care which came first- I made this design way back when (check the timestamp) and never saw this comic before now. But whatevs :shrug: people get the same ideas all the time.

This image has done the rounds in google images and amongst the Steampunk community though, so who knows- if so, it's nice to know it inspired such a beautiful comic.

xD okay, yeah i know what you mean by saying ppl get the same ideas, some stuff I created way back showed up later in some movies and such but i never showed these sketches to anybody... and if you dont mind if your idea of that horse was taken to make a comic then its okay for me too ^^

If I got mad at ppl for getting the same visual ideas as me I'd be grumpy all the time XD
So long as it's not something directly traced/copied, I don't see the problem. Ideas are cheap- execution is king.

yeah you'r right. well... sometimes the idea itself is king too... but I guess not with visual art xD

Looks like it might be a good steed for winter; you would stay very warm in that saddle. :)
I really like the hooves, they would be great for gripping all sorts of terrain. Fantastic job on the little details.
