The graveyard Guardiens


Meet Ibwa and Eurynome. Two third-born Anarretyn in charge of looking after the mortal graveyard where the blessed are stored for their rebirth in the mortal realm.
Eurynome usually sits by the entrance, shooing the unwelcome away when not snoozing while Ibwa tends to the graveyard it self.
I think the comic followers will like these guys when i introduce them, well some of you will, others might be horrified by them.

Ibwa usually has a poncho over his shoulders but it would have been rather bland down there had I drawn that.

Foreshortening is kinda bad in places and the colouring on the chars is rather messy but over all i'm rather pleased with this. I'm glad i followed through with this idea, even if it did come out of the blue.

This is a wonderful art piece. I love how you give description in the author's comments. For me, the best part is actually the background. It looks like there's a bunch of bats in the trees. I can't tell if they're leaves or not. With all the webcomics out there, I can believe this is a comic.

I especially like how you see the sky on the right hand corner. It looks like the Moon's purple glimmer is showing through. Graveyards make everything creepier. The staff's a really cool touch too. I just now noticed they have wings!

Unique beings that in spite of being quite horrific in appearance have a noble purpose.
I like this, the two are quite well detailed and much work was put into the background as much as the characters, which is quite impressive. Sadly, Ibwa?, (I think, the guy on bottom?) appears to be of less detail than the other and the rest of the picture... maybe for good reason? Well, whatever, great job!

Wow, eerie and awesome at the same time! The background is easily the best feature (in my opinion) of this piece, and very realistically portrayed, as are the rock features surrounding your characters. The shading and shadows is magnificent, as is the clothing design; the lighting gives the ambiance of spiritual power of mortal souls at rest. Both guardians really show their unique personalities. Keep this awesome work up!

What an astounding image! Really! I'm so glad you're uploading to newgrounds because we need content of your quality. This is just fantastic. Your understanding of atmosphere, aesthetic, color and linework, shape and solidity, everything is just impressive and beautiful. Fantastic work, keep it up!
