The girl and the boar people


Author Comments

"I once asked my father if there was someone else like me and mother in our world. He promptly remembered hearing myths about a girl who lived with the wild men beyond the cliffs. They did not shy away from civilization, so every once in a while stories could be heard about a small girl sitting on the shoulders of her towering stepdad, who, despite his monstrous appearance, always had a benevolent smile on his face. Unfortunately their last tale ended with them vanishing without a trace. When I inquired about their fate my father only responded that wild men in human lands were bound to attract troublemakers sooner or later.
Eventually I began do doubt their very existence until I was old enough to venture into the world myself. On my travels I actually ran into a girl who I believed to be the very girl I've heard so many stories about. She was down on her luck and searched for her beastly family, so naturally I was overcome with the same generosity her stepfather exhibited in his tales - and took her by the hand, wishing for my favorite childhood story to reach a happy end."


Still practicing backgrounds and new shading stuff. Do you guys think the swing motion is kinda lacking too? Or is it just me?

I can tell there is meant to be a swing, yes. But it does look like it's not swinging hard enough.

Everything else is great, and love the Backstory. =3

kmau responds:

I think that way too, the swing doesn't have enough power. Glad you liked it though!

Love it.

Woah this looks great. Very dynamic, love it

great stuff :D the picture didn't really have much to do with the description do, which was a let down, wudv worked betr if this piece was with a description of 'happy days of childhood spent learning from his father' or something and u had him meeting the girl or someting other than that its really gud, gotta say do, the description won more points than the picture for me :)

kmau responds:

This was actually supposed to be a short animation that I may do in the future, hence the picture just shows one of the scenes from the narration.

just awesome!!!
