Rabbits, Fairies, & Dwarfs... Oh my!

A number of years back I took a stab at creating a fantasy comic.
The story followed the adventures of POKE & SILVER, a fairy and her rabbit companion, relentlessly pursued by a sect of fanatical druids bent sacrificing the poor rodent ( he's kinda special ).

A whole 13 pages were penciled before I abandoned the project. Since the pages are just lying about getting yellow I felt they might as well serve as blog fodder.

Startled awake by Silver's approach, he tells her of his foreboding dream. 
She reassures him then casually dismisses the matter...

Pay attention to your surroundings.

Looking to hire a guide, she is pointed in the direction of the rude and 
prurient Harry Calico, and a table of some dwarves.


Later, in Silver and Pokes room

Silver's hair changed several times over the period I drew these pages, because at the time I hadn't settled on her look. Those dreadlock things didn't work for me; most annoying to draw. Inking that spaghetti page after page...nightmare!

Looking back I have to say it probably wasn't bad stuff although at the time I really thought the stuff sucked.
