Cernunnos Walks by Nhaar Cernunnos Walks by Nhaar
My first assignment for my comic book class this semester here at RISD. I've had this sitting around for a little while without uploading it- Its a pretty tough class and I don't quite feel like I'm there yet. So I'm still on the fence about everything I've done for it so far.
Of course it also makes me want to work work work like a fiend to get better!

I knew about the myth and it just... sounded ridiculous to me. There is this guy-god with horns on his head...
This is wow. It just works, I think I understand now.

I'm loving how you've pulled off a Celtic look to this with none of the cheese. Very nice indeed and certainly well deserving of a DD.

Its not a character as such, he's a wiccan God of...nature and fertility or something. Curnunnos. I don't mean to nit-pick, but I'm not in a particularly good mood I'm afraid. Sorry.

Cernunnos is the god of the forest. He serves as both hunter of and guardian of wildlife, and is often depicted as either a great stag or a man with antlers and robes.

He is one of my patron deities, for protection.

But I got to say, as far as I can see, the goat horns seem to be different in almost every shot. The first two shots also got his ears circled by those horns and then those ears seem to dissapear?

I like the style - it reminds me of Ivan Bilibin a little, with the clean lines and simple but effective colours. :)

The sudden close-up in the third-to-last panel feels a bit out of place, but otherwise, it works well.
