One Lemming's Loss

A lemming misses the great cliff run and ends up alone. He grieves for his lost family until a little chickadee comes to help him out of it, and they become fast friends. Yet even much later in the lemming's life, he still misses his family.

I drew this over the course of 2 months. One month for pencils and inks, a second month for the colors. I used sumi ink and Hunt 102, so I couldn't color over it without it running (because sumi-ink is not waterproof). Abe scanned the inks and printed them out, and I colored the print outs with Copic markers. This comic took almost a full grass green refill. That is a lot if ink.

 

Practice Anthropomorphic Lemmings

I wanted to practice the style a bit before working on the comic so I could get the lemming's down consistently.
