Re: Avenger


A re-imagining of a certain environmentalism-themed children's book, that is hopefully different enough to not be infringing on copyright. The most important thing to me on Earth Day is finding ways to spread the message, and timeless stories are one way to do that.

Really late on this because I had a long weekend, but I am challenging myself to submit a design every week.

Not happy with the title but I couldn't think of a better one. The first title was "I Fight for the Trees", and someone immediately pointed out that he must not have fought very hard since the trees are all dead. Oops.

Oh well, it was fun to draw.

Re: Avenger


Long weekend celebrating your print? Lol!
I really like the art, and the look on the avenger's face. But since I haven't read the book you mention, my first thought was 'who is he avenging? Did he kill all those trees?'? I think the comp would have worked better with the avenger facing his enemy rather than posing for the scene. JMHO.

Very nice job on the color and artwork. To tell you the truth, I had thought at first that the monkey had killed all of the trees...until I saw the title...and then was a bit more confused. But I love the monkey!

Did Woot filter your comment or is "BAMF" what all the kids are saying these days?

Okay seriously, I only know "BAMF" to be the noise Nightcrawler makes when he teleports.

But one of my younger friends just explained it differently to me.

I am so old.

If not the sound of teleportation, then what?

It's not wrong to use wood, it's just wrong to chop down entire forests without replanting them.

Yep, I used the emperor tamarin as the basis for the new character design.
