Flame in the Forest by Viant-T Flame in the Forest by Viant-T
As a long timer reader of Gunnerkrigg Court comic, I wanted to present a fanart piece that the author, Tom Siddell, can personally enjoy and to demonstrate how inspiring and, ya know, unique story he shared with millions. I ain't counting and I don't think they are either.

:D From me to you guys, and also with all your advice from the rough draft, it wouldn't be so complete!

--Yay on the DD! I hate all you bastards for flooding my message box (Now I have something to do for hours on end with checking out each person) but I'm really glad more folks are getting to see how far along I've progressed with my work! Thank you for all the grand support and attention! *ends with enthralling speech about everything*

This fully capture's Ysengrin's form in a way that the original comic's drawing style never will.  It's beautiful.

Dude, had no idea about this comic until this piece and now I am like totally hooked.  I have read thru the entire thing twice and can't wait for the next day's post.  Thanks for putting this together.  Looks amazing and, at least for me, shed some light on a really cool comic!  Thanks!

 

OOOOHHHH and congrats on the DD.  Good Work!

That looks impressive. Absolutely stunning. I was browsing through the GC fanarts in a discussion forum and BAM that shows up. 

I wasn't even near ready to see something so delightfully beautiful. 

AMAZING work. This is brilliant. You are awesome.

I don't remember Tom ever commenting on any piece of fan artwork, however he did add yours to his favourites here on deviantart ( ~tea-san ).

Oh yay! I didn't know he had a DA account or I would've tried to contact that, but at least he favorited. Commenting would likely have him flooded to no end, so might be variably a wise decision. Ty for letting me know! <3 Especially when you trudged through the favorites to find his name.

After I stopped being blown away by the sheer magnitude of the beauty and detail, the first thing I noticed was Ysengrin's face, specifically his eyes, both in shape and the surrounding tissue. The way they appear to "mesh" with the rest of his face makes him look almost . . . human, like an old, tired man. It seems to hint at the possibility that humanity is essential to his existence and to show just how weathered he is, but with an underlying strength.

Is this what you were going for? Am I totally off?

In any case, this is beautiful and awe-inspiring.
